Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq

1. Arif Billaah Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Akhtar Saahib is one of the most eminent Sheikhs of today. Hazrat Maulana is a glittering star among the "Walis" of Allah. He is renowned for a heart brimming with the love for Allah and the Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). His writings and books are in actual fact fountains of knowledge and love of Allah and the Messenger. His many works of literature are spiritually rejuvenating for the young and the old. He has thousands of Mureeds across the globe, many of whom are themselves highly rated scholars. The pivotal message of all his talks is to develop immense love for Allah and the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and lead a life of obedience to Allah and compliance to the beautiful Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), abstinence from all forms of sin, fulfilling the rights of Allah and the right of the Creation; a guaranteed prescription of becoming a "wali" of Allah.

Taking spiritual allegiance to Hakeem Saahib will most definitely prove to be a fruitful endeavour, inshaAllah.

2. We would advise against attending Dr. Farhat Hashmi's lectures, since the information we have on her alludes that she is of the Salafi school of thought.
