Behshti Zewar - Beneficial Stories

Umme Harun

She had great fear for Allah, used to engage in a lot of ‘ibadah, and always used to eat dry bread. She used to say: "At the approach of night, my heart used to become very happy. But when day comes, I get very sad. I stay awake the entire night." She did not apply any oil to her hair for thirty years. However, when she used to open her hair, it used to be clean and shining. Once she came out of her house and heard a person telling another person: "Catch (seize)!" (Upon hearing this) the day of qiyamah came to mind and she fell down unconscious. Once while she was in the forest, a lion confronted her. She said to it: "If I am your sustenance, eat me." This lion turned around and went away.

Lesson: Glory be to Allah! How intoxicated she was in His remembrance and how much she feared Him! As regards the incident with the lion, that could be considered to be her karamat. O women! You should also create this remembrance and fear of Allah in your hearts. Qiyamah is bound to come, so make some preparations for it.

Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb - Episodes & Lessons from the Life of Hazrat Moulana



As was his Ma’mool (daily practice), Hadhrat would take a walk after Fajr Salaah. Sometimes he would walk in the compound where the Majlis Khana was located. At other times he would stroll in the Majlis Khana itself.

It was the time when the people of the village would come and greet him. After a brief Salaam, they would amass precious Du’aas and leave with smiling faces. Only two or three Ustaads, a Khaadim or so, and Hadhrat’s son and son-in-law would be permitted to walk with him. Out of respect, they always walked a little behind him.

This is the time when Hadhrat Rahmatullahi Alayh would treat us with some informal conversation and discussion. As per the Sunnah, he would inquire of any new and events etc. which were taking place in the world or sometimes, the Tafseer of an Aayat or at other times just remain silent.

One morning, Hadhrat sadly remarked: “Aaj kal, Jaanwar jangal me ye bi kehte honge, ke: ‘E Insaan me tum se accha hu!’” (Nowadays, the animals in the jungle must be saying that ‘O humans, we are better than you!’)

This was said almost a quarter of a century ago when Hadhrat was simply flooded with the problems of people. At the time of Asr when he would stand up for Wudhu, he would forlornly observe: “Whichever letter I open, there is only grief, accept for a very few. From the morning till the evening, it’s only tales of sorrow that people narrate. At the end of the day, I am also human and thus I am affected.”

Once he mentioned to this writer: “In my entire life, I cannot recall ever sleeping after Fajr Salaah. Even when ill, I would merely lay down on the rug. But, I cannot remember ever getting back into bed. The air just before sunrise has the quality of making a person feel drowsy. However, this period and phase is very brief. Thereafter, all thoughts of sleep fade away.”

IVF Treatment for Conception

Q. I have recently been informed by my doctor that I have specific medical conditions that are impairing my ability to conceive. They have prescribed me a drug called clomid which is to enhance the ovulation process. The next step after the medication, if it does not work, will be a surgery to try and treat the problem. In the event that does not work either they have suggested IVF. I would like to know from an Islamic point of view, are these treatments allowed?

A. Allah Ta’ala has already decreed in eternity all those who will be born on earth until the Day of Qiyaamah. If Allah Ta’ala has decreed children for you, you will beget them regardless of your condition and what the doctors say. If there are no children decreed in your Taqdeer, then regardless of the treatments you undergo, nothing will help. You should therefore repose your trust in Allah Ta’ala, and make D’uaa for children, and be satisfied with Allah’s decree. In everything which He decrees there is wisdom and goodness for us.

Do not submit yourself to the doctors for experimenting. The type of surgery they will subject you to, is unnatural and can have extremely harmful consequences. IVF is not permissible.

Knowledge of Tibb PDF Print E-mail

Knowledge of Tibb

Imaam Shaafi’ (Rahmatullahi alaih) would lament over Muslims not inculcating expertise in Ilmut Tibb [knowledge of medicine/the art of healing] and leaving a third of knowledge in this way to the Yahood and Nasaara.

[The other two thirds referred to are knowledge of Deen and knowledge of the dunya. A person is in need of these three for his survival and prosperous stay on earth. He requires knowledge of the Deen for the blessings of this life and salvation in the Aakhirah, he requires knowledge of this world, that is knowledge of world-related professions and occupations to earn a livelihood and to carry out his mundane activities, and he requires knowledge of physical health to maintain, nourish and strengthen his body, and to treat himself when taking ill.

Imaam Shaafi’ (Rahmatullahi alaih) thus expressed his regret that Muslims have left this third of knowledge to non-muslims thus making Muslims dependant on the kufaar for a third of life’s needs.

It is also essential to mention here that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has taught us through his noble and beautiful way of life how to care for and foster our physical health. Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) also provided guidance in health-related matters and remedies to certain illnesses. For this reason, the Muhadditheen include in their compilations, Kitaabut Tibb – the Book of Healing. By implementing these health-related teachings of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) amongst which are: regular fasting, consuming wholesome and halaal foods, never filling the stomach, taking honey, being physically active, etc., etc. We will find our health in outstanding condition and the need to run to doctors and kuffaar medical practitioners will never arise, Insha-Allah. May Allah Ta’ala grant us the taufeeq to truly appreciate the wonderful teachings of the Sunnah.]

When Does Talaaq-e-Raj’i Iddat Commence? PDF Print E-mail
Fiqh and Masaail - Talaaq

When Does Talaaq-e-Raj’i Iddat Commence?

Q. My husband has given me Talaaq e Raj’ee. I want to know whether I sit in Iddat from the time he moves out or from the time of the Talaaq? Also, four days after the Talaaq he made nikaah to another women. Would that mean that we can never reconcile?
A. Iddat begins the exact time the talaaq is issued. The moment the husband pronounces talaaq or writes out a talaaq to his wife her iddat commences. In view of him issuing only one Talaaq Raj’i it is still possible to reconcile and he can keep you as his wife. However, if he does not make raj’at (take you back) then the nikaah terminates upon expiry of your iddat.
Recite Qur’aan Shareef as if you are conversing with Allah Ta’ala to fortify yourself during this testing period you, as well as innumerable poor souls, are going through. May Allah Ta’ala be with you.

Intuition of the Fuqaha

Imaam Qutaibah says: “I saw Imaam Muhammed Bin Al-Hasan and Imaam Shaafi’ sitting outside the Ka’bah. A person passed by. One of those two illustrious Imaams said, ‘Let us test our sixth sense.’ One said that he [the passer-by] appeared to be a tailor. The other said that he appeared to be a carpenter. They sent someone to enquire. He came back and reported that the man said: ‘I was a tailor before, now I do carpentry.”

The Desire for the Haq to Be Revealed

When I discussed and debated with anyone my desire was for him to be given the taufeeq of good; to be shown the path of guidance; to be divinely aided; to be protected by Allah Ta’ala from errors. In the discussion I would not concern myself with whether Allah Ta’ala reveals the Haq with my tongue or his tongue. (In other words: If the adversary speaks the truth then I feel no shame in accepting it.)
--Hazrat Imaam Muhammad Bin Idree Ash-Shaafi' (Rahmatullahii Alaih)
