Four Cases of Drought

Allah Ta'ala states in the Quraan:

And whatsoever of affliction which befalls on you is owing to that which your hands earned; and He pardons much.” (Surah Shura - 30)

Corruptness has appeared on land and sea, because of that which man's hands have earned, so that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that haply they may return."(Surah Room - 41)(Ma'aariful Qur'aan vol 6-p738, vol 7 p696)

1) Comitting sins willfully

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said: 'Man is deprived of sustenance and provision on account of committing sin and disobedience willfully.' (Musnad -e- Ahmad)

2) Cheating & deceiving others

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) has said: “Whenever a people generally start cheating and deceiving others in business and commerce concerning commodities which are sold by weight or measure, then inevitably Allah subjects them to punishment by droughts and scarcity of goods.(Ma'aariful Qur'aan vol 4 p66')

It has been reported by Hazrat Abdullah bin Omar Radiallaahu Anhu in Ibne Maajah as follows: 'When people generally indulge in deceitful acts such as giving less than is due on them in things which are sold by either weight or measure, then such people are undoubtedly punished by Allah with widespread droughts, serious calamities and the oppression of rulers over them.'

3) Not Paying Zakaat

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“…(Whenever a nation) lessens weights and measures , they will be afflicted with famine, price hikes and and an oppressive leader. When they refuse to pay Zakah, they will be deprived of rain. Were it not for the animals, it will not rain (at all)…”

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 540. Declared Authentic by Imam Hakim and ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs. Also see Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4019 and Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 546/544 for similar narrations)

4) Zina(Adultery) becomes rife

Imaam Ahmad Rahmatullahi Alayhi has narrated a report from Hazrat A'mr bin Aas Radiallaahu Anhu in which he says :'I heard Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) who used to say: 'Whenever zina (adultery) overtakes people, thus becoming a general practice in them, then on account of such an accursed practice having become rife in them, they find themselves plagued by droughts as a punishment for their actions.'

Foetal Mysteries

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam explains that there are three initial stages to the creation of a human in a mother's womb. The first stage is of Nutfah, which refers to the parents' liquids having contact with each other. The second stage is of Alaqah, wherein a clot of blood is formed and Allah Ta'ala houses it securely in the womb. The next stage is of Mudghah, wherein Allah Ta'ala makes it into flesh. At the end of the third stage (Mudghah), an angel comes to the four month old foetus and upon the instruction of Allah Ta'ala, it starts forming the baby's bodily appearance and the child's Rooh enters the body. This occurs 120 days after the parents' liquids have met. Based on instruction from Allah Ta'ala, the angel records the details of child's Rizq, death the deeds he will perform. The angel also notes whether the child will be one of pleasure or displeasure. Allah Ta'ala creates in the child the ability to see and perceive. -Sahih Muslim- Thus by the stage of Mudghah, a new human has been created.

We now look at how each of these attributes, were found in RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam, namely the formation of the body, the Rooh entering the body, the Rizq, deeds, place and time of death, and state of happiness or sadness being recorded.

1. Physical Appearance of RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam

Jibreel Alayhis Salaam said that, I traversed the east and the west of the earth, and I did not see a man better than Muhummud sallAllahu alayhi wasallam, and I did not see a paternal lineage better than Banu Haashim. -Imam Bayhaqi and Abu Nuaym in their Dalaailin Nabuwwa- Haafidh alAsqalani says that this deduction of Jibreel Alayhis Salaam makes it very clear that RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam is the best in all aspects of his physical existence. -Mawahibul Ladunya- We can understand from this that Allah Ta'aala created RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam with the best physical attributes.

 

2. Rooh of RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam

Imam Ghazzali in a lengthy discussion explains that the Rooh of RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam is directly connected to Allah Ta'aala. This unique nature of his Rooh allows him to make the Ma'rifa of Allah Ta'aala like no other person. -Mishkaatul Anwaar-

3. Rizq of RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam

At first, fasting was almost a full day. Iftaar was at Maghrib, but once one fell asleep, the next fast commenced. During the hot Arabian summer, this meant that fasting could have an effect on a person's health.

Despite these long hours, RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam would keep Nafl fasts for days on end. Some Sahaba radi Allahu anhum followed suit. However RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam advised them to rather keep fast every alternate day or even just three days a month. They said to RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam that you keep continuous fast, and we like to follow that. He sallAllahu alayhi wasallam replied that you are not like me, I receive the nourishment of food and drink. -Masnad Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal-

This means that the blessed body of RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam received Rizq directly from Allah Ta'aala. We receive our Rizq through our earnings, with which we buy food, which we in turn cook, eat and need to digest. Khalif Umar bin Khattab radi Allahu anhu says that in receiving Rizq through food, the food is a veil between us and the Provider. -Kitaab Zuhd- However this veil was removed for RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam and he was able to receive his Rizq directly from Allah Ta'aala.

4. Deeds

Surah Waaqia explains that on the Day of Resurrection, we would be separated into two groups, those on the right and those on the left. Those on the right would be the righteous.

RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam says that he will be on the right and he will be the best of those on the right. Then from amongst those on right, the foremost of the foremost will be chosen and they would be the best of us. Surah Waaqia says that they would be chosen according to their deeds. -Surah Waaqia v 10- In this regards too, RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam says that he will be in this group, known as Saabiqoon asSaabiqoon, and from all of them he will be the best. -Imam Bayhaqi in his Dalaailin Nabuwwa-

As we have seen, Surah Waaqia says that the grading of the Saabiqqon asSaabiqoon is according to their deeds, and RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam says that he would be the best of the Saabiqoon asSaabiqoon. This means that from all of creation, The deeds of RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam would be the most excellent in total and nature.

5. Place and Time of Death

For each of us, the place and time of our death has been fixed by Allah Ta'aala and it is recorded by the angel whilst we are just 4 months in our mother's womb. However for RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam it was different.

During the last day of RasoolAllah's sallAllahu alayhi wasallam final illness, his daughter Sayyidah Faatima radi Allahu anha was at his house. She heard a somebody at the door. The man made Salaam and asked to enter. Sayyidah Faatima radi Allahu anha said to the man may Allah Ta'aala reward you but she politely did not allow him in. After his third Salaam, RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam told Sayyidah Faatima radi Allahu anha that is actually the Angel of Death, so let him in.

RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam asked the Angel of Death if he had come to visit or to take him. The Angel of Death said that he came to visit and that Allah Ta'aala instructed that he can only take away RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam when he sallAllahu alayhi wasallam wants. Jibreel Alayhis Salaam came and he explained that he has opened the door of the sky and of Jannah in anticipation of RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam. The Hoors (heavenly maidens) are all adorned and ready for RasoolAllah's sallAllahu alayhi wasallam reception. And he has arranged the angels in saffs, so that they will stand up sending greetings to RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam. After a while RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam gave permission to the Angel of Death to take hold of him. -Imam Tabraani in Mu'jam alKabeer-

With regards to all of us, our time and place of death is recorded whilst we are in the womb. We have no choice about it, and death pounces upon us unexpectedly. However in the case of RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam, he had to choose his time and place, and all the heavenly beings gave him a grand reception as his soul passed through.

6. Happiness or Sadness

The last thing that the angel records whilst the child is in the womb, is if the child will be one who would be happy or sad. With regards to RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam, the Quran confirms that RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam would be one who would be pleased; happy.

Allah Ta'aala says, And soon your Rabb will give you such abundance that you would be pleased. -alQuran 93:5-

Some say that being happy or sad, refers to whether the person would end up in Paradise or Hell. In this respects too, RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam has been guaranteed his happiness, for Allah Ta'aala has undertaken that none will enter Paradise before RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam. -Imam Tabraani-

These six points are the matters that an angel would record for each baby in it's mother's womb. As we have just discussed above, in each of these six points, Allah Ta'aala has blessed RasoolAllah sallAllahu alayhi wasallam immensely and beyond any other human. After all, he is Allah Ta'ala's most Beloved.

The Mu'min

Al Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbil 'Aalameen was Salaatu was Salaamu 'alaa Ashrafil Anbiyaa'e wal Mursaleen

Wa Ba'd:

Hazrat Aisha, Allah be pleased with her, reported that the Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam said that Nabee Moosa Alayhis Salaam once asked Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala: “O Allah! Tell me about Your most exalted people.” Almighty Allah replied: “They are the ones who hasten to do what I want first, just like an eagle glides with precision towards what it desires. They are the servants of My creation who hasten to serve the guests like a young servant does in the house of his master.

"O Moosa! They feel offended if any of My injunctions are violated, just like an angry tiger does, for an angry tiger attacks with impunity no matter how many people it faces.” You must know that My servants maintain vigilant hearts and constant fear of Me. I am their sole hope by which they call upon Me, and thus, if you meet them, humble yourself to them. Indeed, such special beings are the light that dispels the darkness. They are people who have filled their hearts with constant awareness of Me and with recognition of My Divine majesty." Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala informs us in verse 4 of Surah Al-Anfal:

"For them are grades (of honour) with their Lord, and forgiveness, and a bountiful provision."

Almighty Allah Rabbul Ala'meen then informs us in verse 35 of Surah Al-Ahzab:

"I dress them with the effulgent light of My love, and raise before their eyes the banners of My guidance so that they may seek it. I endow them with Sabr [patience] to protect them against resisting My Will. I make them the champions and models of those consenting to My Will. Thus, their zeal and ardor rise only towards Me. Their inner eyes constantly observe Me and I station them at the gate of gazing at Me."

"And men who remember Allah much and women who remember …Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward."

Ya Ibadi! “O My slaves!” Do not be deceived by the comfort and pleasures of the world that you dwell in, for this is the lot of the ornate and the luxury of the opulent ones. If it was My will, I can surely dress you with ornaments from the world, which Fir’awn will certainly recognize his inability to muster. It is not because you are not worthy of it, rather it is because I have dressed you with your share of honour and exaltedness so that the world becomes insignificant to you as declared in verse 56 of Surah Al-Ma’ida:

“As to those who turn (for friendship) to Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) Believers – it is the Fellowship of Allah That must certainly triumph.”

A true Muh’min is content with what he or she has. They are grateful for it, and share its blessings with others. They are also protected against excess comfort or indulgence in this world. They are the ones who use a meager portion of their share to sustain their short journey toward Almighty Allah, and therefore, they become one of the numerous pillars of trueness and guiding lights to the seekers in this world. The Signs and Evidence of Almighty Allah are in all nature and within the body and soul of man, if man has but the spiritual eyes to see. This is confirmed to us in verses 20-21 of Surah Az-Zariyat:

“On the face of the earth there are signs for the possessors of certainty, and also in your own selves; will you not see?”

Such servants of Almighty Allah are the light that dispels the darkness, and indeed they are the fountainhead of wisdom, righteousness, and balance. Almighty Allah endows them with unique and unparalleled virtues. He cleanses them from affectation and replaces it with purity, trueness and sincerity.

Thabit bin Thawban narrated that our Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam said: “Blessed are the sincere ones, for they are the lights of guidance that dispels darkness and adversities in this world. Such true human beings attain their exalted stations by holding fast to the rope of Allah, by spending freely and generously from what Allah favours them with, and by upholding justice.” [verse 17 Surah Al-I-Imran].

“The steadfast, and the truthful, and who worship devoutly, and those who spend (In the Way of Allah).”

These are the ones who graciously accept what is just when it is offered, they generously give when they are asked, and they judge between people by the same criterion they seek for themselves. They are cheerful outwardly but ever anxious inwardly. The spirit of elation comes from their contentment, satisfaction, and constant yearning for their Lord and their fear of losing their struggle, or even a mere thought of separation from Him, bewilders and distresses them.

Also on this subject, ‘Iyadh bin Ghanam narrated that the Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam said: “I was informed by the heavenly hosts of angels that the most dignified among my followers are people who rejoice in public when they ponder the vastness of Almighty Allah’s all-encompassing mercy and compassion, and they weep privately when they contemplate the rigorous punishment He reserved for the sinners and the deniers of the Truth.

They sit in His blessed Masaajid morning and evening worshipping Him and celebrating His praises inwardly, and they implore Him with their tongues outwardly with reverence and awe. They pray to Him with their hands raised as well as lowered, and they yearn for Him unceasingly. They take little from people, and yet, it bears heavily on their hearts. They walk barefooted, humble, unpretentious, and unnoticed, just like ants, without finery; and they are free of self-adulation.

They walk with dignity and serenity, and they rise to the nearness  of the Exalted Creator through their link to His Beloved Rahmatul Liel Ala’meen – Muhammad Ibn Abdullah Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam. They wear the garment of good conduct and follow the clear proof. They read the Qur’an regularly, take their daily guidance from it, and they happily make the necessary personal sacrifices to meet its requirements.

Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala has surrounded them with distinguished witnessing angels, and faithful guardians, and He has illumined their faces with effulgence as a sign of His blessings upon them and as a demonstration of His satisfaction with them. When they look at His servants, they anticipate promising signs. They often contemplate the vastness of Almighty Allah’s creation. Their bodies dwell on earth, and their eyes are anchored upon the heavens.

Their feet stand on earth, and their hearts dwell in the heavens. They breathe on earth, and yet, their spirits are connected to the Divine Throne. Their souls live in this world, and their thoughts are focused on the Aghirah [the Hereafter]. They only worry about what may come. Their graves are in this world, and their ranks are exalted in Almighty Allah’s sight. Almighty Allah makes them the champions and models of those consenting to His Will.

He purifies their bodies with the constant alertness of observing and contemplating Him. He anoints them with the perfumes of His intimate ones. He dresses them with cloaks that are woven with the threads of His great Muhabbat and kindness, and crowns them with the light of His pleasure and blessings. He then fills their hearts with the vestige of the innermost secrets of His Being, so that they become attracted to Him, and their hearts attached solely to Him.

He then says to them: “If a needy person comes to you asking for the medicine of My nearness, nurse his or her needs. Treat with kindness the one who is sick and emaciated because of his or her separation from Me. Comfort the heart of the one who is fearful of Me. Congratulate the one who years for My continuous presence. Provide the provisions for a seeker journeying towards Me. Promise a good reward for the one who is in despair of My munificence. Maintain strong ties with the one who loves Me.”

“Ya Ibadi”: - O My servants! I shall reward you with the best reward, and I shall endow you with the choicest of gifts. I have conferred upon you My bounty. My favour upon you is the most generous, and My dealing with you is the best of commerce. I am the expert collector and connoisseur of hearts, I am the best judge of their quality, and I know what they hide. I am the observer of every move, and not a single blink of an eye can escape My knowledge”. We are informed in verse 3 of Surah Al-Hujurat:

Those are they whose hearts Allah has Proven unto righteousness. Theirs will be forgiveness and immense reward.’

These true believers attain their exalted and elevated stations as a reward for their brief endurance, determination, and a few short hours of patience. They live through the ephemeral days of this passing world satisfied with little, and cautious of a forthcoming distressful and awesome Day of Reckoning. They intensify their struggle when calm entices others to slow down, and they are mindful of the unexpected surprises of the hour.

They are silent but eloquent, blind but seeing, and in fact, no description can do them justice. They are like a saddle that carries the rider, and they are the minarets of the land, the light in the darkness, the substance of mercy and compassion, the prime of wisdom, and the backbone of the believers. They aspire for Allah’s gifts with awe, watchful awareness, and praiseworthy deeds.

They contemplate the Qabir [grave] and its tightness, and they often think about the questioning Angels in the grave, and how will they initiate the questioning, their scorning of the sinners, and probing of the believers. They also fear the day when they will stand before their Exalted Creator, blessed is His name and Holy are His Attributes. Such servants of Allah are the light that dispels the darkness, and indeed they are the fountainhead of wisdom, righteousness, and balance.

Sayyidina Omar bin al-Khattab R.A. narrated that our Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam said: “Some of Almighty Allah’s servants are neither prophets nor martyrs. They are special people who on the Day of Reckoning, the Ambiya Alayhim Salaam and the martyrs will envy them for their ranks and nearness to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala.” Someone asked: “O Prophet of Allah, who are they, and what type of deeds do they perform, so that we may love them as well?”

The Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam replied: “They are the people who love one another in Allah, even though they have no consanguineous ties [related by blood], money to exchange, or worldly business to barter with. I swear by Allah, that on the Day of Reckoning their faces will be like effulgent lights, and they will be raised on pulpits of light. They will not be subject to fear when the creation is seized by the awesomeness of the Day of Resurrection, nor will they be subject to sorrow when the rest of creation will be seized by it.” He then recited verse 62 of Surah Yunus:

“Behold! Verily on the friends of Allah There is no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

Almighty Allah’s all-embracing knowledge and constant watchful care over all His creatures may be a source of fear to sinners, but there is no fear for those whom He honours with His love and friendship – neither in this world nor in the world to come. Beloved brothers and sisters in Islam – the Most Glorious Qur’an and the exalted Sunnah and Seerah of our Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam provides us with a most awe-inspiring high moral standard.

It is our foremost Islamic duty and responsibility to learn and ponder upon the words of the Qur’an and to follow the Sunnah way of life and living. Once we have learned and acted upon what we have learned, it is Fard [obligatory] upon us to pass on this exalted and unadulterated knowledge to our children, to our friends and neighbours, to our non-Muslim friends and associates, and to grant us to live by what we say and not to count us among those who ‘say things’ they do not do.

And Almighty Allah knows best.

To Allah we belong and to Him is our return

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

A true Muslim believes that Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala's creation is meaningful and that life has a sublime purpose beyond the physical needs and material activities of man.

The purpose of life is to worship Almighty Allah Tabaraqa Wata'ala. To worship Almighty Allah is to know Him, to love Him; to obey His Commandments; to enforce His Law in every aspect of life; to serve His Cause by doing the Right and shunning evil. To worship Allah is to "live" life and not to run away from it. In brief, to worship Him is to imbue ourselves with His Supreme Attributes. Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala declares in verse 155 of Surah Al Baqara:

 

"Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger,

some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil),

but give Glad tidings to those who persevere with patience."

Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala informs us that He is with those people who believe and seek His help with patient perseverance and prayer.  The Mercy of Almighty Allah gives us hope and peace, courage and confidence. It enables us to remedy our griefs and sorrows, to overcome our difficulties and obtain success and happiness. In short, the Mercy of Almighty Allah is active everywhere all the time in every aspect of our lives. His Blessings and Mercy descend upon those who are are the ones who are rightly guided. And in verse 156 Almighty Allah Most Merciful informs us about the great and wonderful Blessings that are available to those who say:

"Those who say, when afflicted with calamity:

"To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return."

The phenomenon of life counts as the most precious of gifts and its loss is extremely grievous and terrifying, none can doubt that just as surely as man embarks on his life involuntarily to spend a few brief moments in this guesthouse we call our world, we must ultimately confront the painful and frowning face of death when the scroll of our life is rolled up and our return is back to our Most Glorious Creator and Sustainer. Growing up during our young days, we were always taught to recite "Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi Raji'un" when someone had passed away. However, in later years we learned that this verse is not recited just when a person has suffered any kind of loss, be it the death of someone or any living creature, injury to ones body, loss of wealth or property; deterioration of health, but also for all our daily blessings etc.

Beloved People of Imaan! We say "Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi Raji'un" as often as possible because we acknowledge that everything that we have been blessed with in life truly belongs to Almighty Allah and that our ultimate return is back to Him. Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala is the One Who gives and He is the One Who takes  and will always continue to test humanity. Hence, a Muslim submits completely to Almighty Allah and is grateful for whatever he or she has been blessed with. On the other hand, we must forever persevere with patience by reminding ourselves that sooner or later, we too will have to undertake that final journey. Hazrat Abu Musa al-Ashari R.A. reported that our Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam said: [from Tirmidhi, Musnad Ahmad and ibn Habban]:

"When the son of the servant of Allah dies, Allah says to

the Mala'eeka: 'Have you taken the life of the son of My

servant?' they reply: "Yes". Then Allah asks: "What did

My servant say? They reply: "He has Praised You O

Allah by saying: "Inna Lillahi wa inna Ilayhi Raji'un."

In explaining verse 153 of Surah Al Baqara, we are asked to restrain ourselves from complaining about hidden anguish.  Saying "Inna Lillahi wa inna Ilayhi Raji'un" produces many excellent results, among which is the soul's training and discipline. If a Muh'min bears patiently with misfortunes and calamities and seriously endures the hardships entailed by Ibadah for the Pleasure of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala, his or her soul gradually becomes accustomed to these things. The Righteous are patient in constant devotion: Almighty Allah's Way is open to all: whosoever has the Will may attain to the Perfect Goal as promised by Almighty Allah Most Merciful in verse 12 of Surah Al-Insan (Man), or Al Dahr (The Time):

"And because they were Patient and constant, He will

reward them with a Garden and (garments) of silk."

An essential element in fulfilling our Ubudiyyah to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala, our Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam said: "Sabr is a source of Light" and "whosoever practices Sabr is forever under the gaze of Almighty Allah Rabbul Ala'meen". Animals know nothing more than their basic needs and instincts and all they can do is react. Humans on the other hand have been endowed with reason which balances instinct. The Din of Al-Islam is the completeness of our maturity and our humanity. The steadfastness of the religious call over the call passion - if Din overcomes the Nafs, this is Sabr.

Saying "Inna Lillahi wa inna Illayhi Raji'un" whenever we experience grief or suffer a loss proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that Sabr is indeed an UPHILL BATTLE when we're going downhill and losing energy. On the other hand, when we're going uphill, we're gaining potential energy. In short, by reminding ourselves of the great blessing available to us whenever we say: "Inna Lillahi wa inna Illayhi Raji'un", we are gaining "potential spiritual energy". Again, we are reminded in verse 153 of Surah Al Baqara:

"O you who Believe!"

Seek help with patient Perseverance and Prayer;

For Allah is with those who patiently persevere."

On such occasions Sabr (patience) comes in as a handy remedy prescribed by Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala, to act as an anti-toxin to the poisons of mishaps. The ordeal is not so afflicting as the sense of it. But when one is accustomed to bear things with Sabr and surrenders oneself to the Will of Almighty Allah Rabbul Ala'meen, a great deal of the adverse effect of tribulation vanishes away for Almighty Allah declares:

"O you who believe! Seek help in steadfastness

and prayer. Lo! Allah is with the steadfast."

When one mediates over the significance of the above verses that for such unhappy occasions, Almighty Rabbul Ala'meen has prescribed Sabr (patience) as the most handy weapon to ward off evil effects of the mishaps etc; it acts as a neutralizing agent to the  reactions of adverse circumstances. The affliction is not so gruelling as the sense of it. But when one cultivates the habit of  (Sabr) perseverance and steadfastly bears things resigning to the Will of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala, his or her psychological set up of mind undergoes a dramatic change.

"Inna Lillahi wa inna Illayhi Raji'un" teaches us to resign and surrender ourselves totally and completely to the Will of our Glorious Creator and Sustainer. When a Muh'min is convinced that his or her ultimate return is back to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala and that He is always with the steadfast, it gives him or her great consolation and comfort. Thus, "Inna Lillahi wa inna Illayhi Raji'un" is the elixir of all ills and an anti-toxin of all our losses, mishaps, sorrows, hardships, and failures etc.

"Inna Lillahi wa inna Illayhi Raji'un" is the key to the gates of felicity and the main means of deliverance from the mortal perils. It makes a human being bear calamities with ease and face difficulties with composure. It strengthens the will and the power of resolution. It brings independence to the dominion of the soul. One of the great results and precious fruits of our freedom and emancipation from servitude to our carnal self is patience in calamities and misfortunes. In other words, it means restraining ourselves from complaining and produces many excellent results, among which is the soul’s training and discipline.

Our Ibadah should be in an attitude of acknowledgement even in the midst of our sorrows. "Inna Lillahi wa inna Ilayhi Raji'un" is a wonderful method we can use to bring healing and deliverance to our souls and bodies! Many people who experience a death in the family are depressed; one of the quickest ways to receive deliverance from depression is to thank and praise Almighty Allah for that will Insha'Allah bring liberation and healing and relief from despondence and oppression. There are times when we all feel like we are in the "pits" when that horrible sensation of apathy and depression comes over us. "Inna Lillahi wa inna Illayhi Raji'un" can and will bring us up out of that pit.

When our tongues are moist with "Inna Lillahi wa inna Ilayhi Raji'un", we have this constant connection with Almighty Allah, even as we go about our daily routines. When things are going well, or when things are hard, we have this lifeline to Almighty Allah, this constant stream of praise going up, and blessings coming down. Our spirits are lighter, our hearts happier. We are grateful for everything we have, because we remember that every single little blessing – good health, happiness, fresh air, the beating of our hearts and the breath in our lungs – comes from Almighty Allah. "Inna Lillahi wa inna Ilayhi Raji'un" is a guide to excellent character, and a light that keeps us on the path to Jannah.

O Almighty Allah! Make us of those who have Sabr, and grant us Your Mercy and Forgiveness. O Allah! You are the Exalted Creator and Sustainer of the heavens and the earth! O Ya Rabbul Ala'meen, cure our sick, remove our infirmity, have mercy upon all our departed, grant us healthy bodies and engage them in Your service. O Allah! expand our understanding of Sabr, guide our affairs in this world and protect our children. Grant us the benefits of good deeds in this world, the reward of good deeds in the Aghirah, [Hereafter] and save us from the punishment of Jahannum.  "Inna Lillahi wa inna Ilayhi Raji'un".

Beloved People of Imaan! What can we do to make Almighty Allah's Light shine forth through the darkness around us? We must first let it shine in our true selves. With the Light in the niche of our inmost hearts we can walk with steps firm and sure: We can humbly visit the comfortless and guide their steps. Not we but the Light will guide. But oh! the great joy of being found worthy to bear the torch and say to our beloved brethren: "Inna Lillahi Wa inna Ilayhi Raji'un" - I too was in Darkness, Comfortless, and behold, I have found Comfort, Sabr, and Contentment in the Grace Divine - Allaho Akbar!

Ameen. Thumma Ameen Ya Rabbul Ala'meen

And Almighty Allah knows best.

The World of Duality

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Al Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbil 'Aalameen was Salaatu was

Salaamu 'alaa Ashrafil Anbiyaa'e wal Mursaleen

 

"Do not view with eager eyes the insignificant things that

a certain group or community may have been given to

enjoy by Us, for the sake of a test, as a manifestation of the

transitory life of the world, for your sustenance and provision,

which is with your Lord, is much superior and enduring."

 

[Surah TaHa verse 131]

 

Wa Ba'd:

 

Alal Muslimeena Jami'ah! From the first moment that the Light of Allah-wariness shines into the heart of a human being possessing faith, he or she becomes conscious of its worth and significance. It is by virtue of this awareness and  far-reaching vision that a true Muh'min does not seek honour and merit in power and possessions, race and descent. A Muh'min courageously resists temptations and illusionary desires, for he or she has understood that no matter how important and precious some things should appear to be, they are insignificant and worthless before Almighty Allah's Greatness and Majesty and his or her own higher feelings. The Most Glorious Qur'an - that ultimate heavenly source of Divine revelation, which has the most significant role in forming our views, always speaks of opposition and contrast as the "Signs of Almighty Allah." These treasures are there for all the wayfarers and seekers. We learn in verses 13 and 14 of Surah Nuh:

 

"What is the matter with you, that ye place not your hope

for kindness and long-suffering in Allah? Seeing that it is

He that has created you in diverse stages?"

 

People of Imaan! An alternative translation of "hope for kindness and long-suffering in Allah" would be ".......that you fear Allah's Message", i.e. why don't you fear Allah's Majesty, His Greatness, and consequent punishment for your sinfulness; and hope for His Mercy, kindness, and reward for your faith and good deeds? The word of the verse contain the twin strands - fear and hope - simultaneously. The meaning of "created you in diverse stages" may even be wider. Man in his various stages exhibits various wonderful qualities or capacities, mental and spiritual, that may be compared with the wonderful workings of nature on the earth and in the heavens.

 

Ya Ibad Allah! Will he not then be grateful for these Mercies and turn to Almighty Allah Most Exalted Who created all these marvels? We frequently encounter the combination of the opposites treated as an issue relating to the question of the Oneness of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala. There are numerous references to one opposite giving birth to its own opposite. The Most Holy and Noble Qur'an also considers this condition to be a sign of the Great Wisdom and Craftsmanship of Almighty Allah Jallah Wa'ala as we learn from the Qur'anic verse:

 

"He makes the night to enter into the day and makes the

day to enter into the night and He brings forth the living

from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living."

 

Beloved Ummatul Muslimeen! The fact that Almighty Allah Rabbul Ala'meen has made sense faculties proves that He has no sense faculty; the fact that He has made things which are opposite to each other, proves that He has no opposite; the fact that He has made things similar to each other, proves that there is nothing like Him. He made Haqq the opposite to Batil, Light the opposite to Darkness, clarity the opposite to ambiguity, solidity the opposite of fluidity, hotness the opposite to coldness and goodness the opposite to evil. He reconciled the homogeneous things and associated the heterogeneous. Things which were far apart He brought close - and things which were close, He made distant from each other. Our minds and hearts tell us that this world of being with its wondrous system of duality did not come about by itself; such an astonishing world of creation could not rise without being arranged by a Creator Who has brought about this vast and glorious universe through His limitless knowledge and power.

 

Ayyuhal Muslimeen! Almighty Allah launched this creation with its intricate system on the basis of set and immutable laws covering all of being. He created nothing in vain and excluded no being from the Divine Laws governing the universe. Can one believe that a Most Gracious and Merciful Creator, given all the kindness and attention He has extended to His creatures, has left man, the masterwork of the creation, on his own? That He has left human society to live by its own wits, when people are for the most part prisoners of desire and liable to stray into misfortune? Is the answer not clear without being spoken? Accordingly, He sent instructions for human beings through the Ambiya Alayhim Salaam free of any sort of error, so that they could attain to happiness by following those instructions.  Conflict, collision and struggle are some of the fixed characteristics of this world.

 

Ummatal Islam! We live in a world full of conflict and interference. This is the world of creation and destruction, making and breaking, weaving and tearing apart, birth and death. Here we see a whole series of opposites paired in an eternal embrace: good and evil, being and non-being, pleasure and pain - these are the stuff of reality. Two opposite forces are observed existing side by side. Many people consider this to be an imperfect world because of this duality. They feel that this is not the best of all possible worlds, that this is not an ideal world.  They wish that it were a world in which there was only light, life, goodness, happiness, peace and tranquility. They wish that sickness, darkness, death, evil, misery and anxiety did never exist. These people are amazed that the Most Glorious Creator did not fashion the world in the image of the idealized notions which they happen to conceive. The idea of dualism was born from precisely this perception. It was thought that if the world had one source and was ruled by a single principle, two opposite tendencies would never exist.

 

Fa ya Ayyuhan nas! Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala has made man superior to other living beings by endowing him a superb constitution and a beautiful appearance. Yet there is another form and a different face of him, which is heavenly and invisible, which is determined by the qualities of his soul and his inner nature. The people of the world are briefly divisible into two classes. They are either those whom certitude has brought to the point that they see all the outward means and apparent agents as being subject to the perfect and eternal will of the Necessary Being. They see and seek nothing except Almighty Allah Tabaraqa Wata'ala, and they believe that He is the Sovereign Lord in the world and in the Hereafter. Finding a certitude unmarred by deficiency, doubt and hesitation, they have true faith in what Almighty Allah declares in verse 26 of Surah Al Imran:

 

Say: "O Allah! Lord of Power (and Rule), Thou givest Power to whom Thou pleasest,

and Thou strippest off Power from whom Thou pleasest: Thou enduest with honour whom

Thou pleasest, and Thou bringest low whom Thou pleasest: In Thy Hand is all Good.

Verily, over all things Thou hast Power."

 

Ummatal Qur'an! They consider Almighty Allah Azza Wajjal, the Exalted, the Master of the Kingdom of being and all gifts to be from that Sacred Being. They consider all the ebbs and flows of being and all the existential perfections to be derived from the Sacred Being in accordance with the [best] order [of existence] and the [universal] good. They do not attach any worth to the pleasure and displeasure of the people and seek nothing except Almighty Allah's Good Pleasure. Rising above the animal plane to the higher levels is something which is possible for everyone. That is because the desire to attain perfection is innate in human nature, and this inclination is deeply rooted in the human soul. But it definitely stands in need of guidance and care. However, one does not need to be forcefully dragged in order to traverse the downward course of degeneration, because one's base inclinations automatically lead one down the steep path of moral decline.

 

Ayyuhal Gafieloon! A human being can fall to the low level of a beast, while possessing at the same time the capacity to cast away destructive motives before they become potent and to make the angelic ascent towards the higher world. If the edifice of our happiness were to be built on material means, it would soon fall and turn into ruin. That is because the material world is transitory and subject to change, and all its means are fleeting like flashes of lightning, unenduring like vapour and unstable like fire. It is evident how much one can depend on such fleeting and passing means. One who seeks joy and comfort through material means is like one who goes to sleep on an iceberg in a tempestuous sea, heedless of the world around  him or her. Soon the iceberg melts and the individual slips into the arms of its angry waves.

 

Ih'watal Imaan! Worldly wealth is a means to remove need, not the asset to felicity. That which makes us happy is the soul's comfort, and here material means have no role. Do not for a single moment imagine that I wish to underrate the importance of wealth, for it can be an aid to achieving inner comfort if accompanied by wisdom and moderation. It is certain that excess in the pursuit of material means leads to a spiritual imbalance. Soon our souls are invaded by envy, hostility, and violence which are an essential part of a materialistic attitude. We need moderation in order to be happy and to be constantly watchful of ourselves so as not to deviate towards either extremes on the path of life.

 

Shababal Islam! We read in religious stories that in the Aghirah [Hereafter] the sinners will have to cross over the Bridge of Sirat 'which is hotter than fire, sharper than a sword's edge, and thinner than a hair.' Such is the path of life, as it is finer than a hair and a moment of neglect makes us deviate from it. It is sharper than a sword's edge and we are done with if we are not careful. It consumes like fire and a moment of carelessness is enough to make its sparks set the harvest of our being on fire. If we wish to be spiritually happy, do not be unruly and avaricious like fire. Spiritual happiness does not harmonize with greed and avarice. The greedy nature is like a disturbed sea and wretched is the person who pins his or her hopes of peace and tranquillity on a storm.

 

O you who believe! The Truth that a human being innately seeks as a means to his or her own happiness that will never be overturned, as a support that will never be destroyed, and as a way to relate his or her life to the whole and bring him or her inner peace is the Din of Haqq. Only the Will of Almighty Allah Rabbul Ala'meen is never defeated or conquered. Only He will never fail us. Islam is the only way of life that has such a relation to Almighty Allah Most High. This path is necessarily the one that gives the right answers to our innate desires and agrees with the outlook of the sound mind that is called Ad-din-al-Fitri the "innate religion" In sum, Islam is a faith that meets the real and essential needs of mankind; it is sufficient for everyone and will live on forever. Finally, we pray to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala, to accept all our endeavours, forgive all our shortcomings, our mistakes, and errors, and to grant us to live by what we say, and not count us among those who say things, they do not do. Ameen!

 

And Almighty Allah knows best.

 

And Peace be upon those who follow the Guidance.

 

Imam Abdul Hamid
