After the Seal of Prophethood, the Beloved, Holy Prophet Muhammad (may the prayers and peace of Allah Almighty be upon Him, His Blessed Family and Noble Companions) this task was given in the custody of the great Saints of the Islamic tradition – the Awliya Kiram, may Allah be well pleased with them all.
