THE FOUNDATION OF WORSHIP PDF Print E-mail

THE FOUNDATION OF WORSHIP

“The foundation of worship rests on three pillars: the eye, the heart and the tongue. The eye is for gaining admonition. The heart is for contemplation, and the tongue is for honesty, tasbeeh and thikrullah.” – Abul Hasan Zunjani (rahmatullah alayh).

THE CORE OF KNOWLEDGE
Imaam Ahmad Bin Hambal (rahmatullah alayh) used to attend the bayaan (discourse) of a Sufi
Aarif. People asked: “Why do you attend his talks? He is not a Muhaddith nor does he
possess any excellence in academic knowledge.”
Imaam Ahmad responded: “What do you know? These people have the core of knowledge, i.e.
the Ma`rifat of Allah Ta`ala.”

IBAADAT OF 700 YEARS PDF Print E-mail

IBAADAT OF 700 YEARS

One day while Hadhrat Nabi Dawood (alayhis salaam) was reciting the Zaboor, it

crossed his mind that no one on earth engages more in ibaadat than himself. Allah Ta'ala

revealed to him: "O Dawood! Climb that mountain (which was indicated to him). You

will see there a peasant who has been engrossed in ibaadat for seven hundred years

seeking forgiveness for an act which was not sinful. Once while walking on the roof of

his home, he thought that some sand from the roof had fallen on his mother who was

underneath. He is a greater worshipper than you. Now go and give him the glad tidings of

forgiveness from Me."

Nabi Dawood (alayhis salaam) climbed the mountain.

TO REACH THE SUBLIME GOAL
A man asked a buzrug to teach him something which will benefit him. The buzrug said: “Flee
from people and dissociate from them. You will then meet Allah Ta`ala. Your union with Him
will then be perfect.”
The man asked for more naseehat. The buzrug said: “Take hold of Sidq (truth) and taqwa
(piety); abandon ujub (vanity) and riyaa (show); be dominant over the nafs and its desires. You
will then reach your goal.”

THIKR AND THE HEART PDF Print E-mail

bout six times. I then had to leave. Later we were informed that he had died. Why was he swearing so much? What should we recite to save ourselves from such a calamity?
A. Once a Wali went with a group of his mureeds to visit his neighbour who was on his deathbed. When people were making talqeen of the Kalimah to him, he would respond: ‘Ten, eleven’, etc.’ He continued to utter numbers until he died in this manner without the Kalimah on his tongue. The Wali was greatly grieved. He then informed his mureeds: “This man was totally engrossed with his money. Night and day he was absorbed in making money and counting it. He had no thought for this Day of Maut. He thus left this world without the

Kalimah, and with his money on his tongue. If you all want Allah’s Name to be on your tongue effortlessly when Maut arrives, then keep it moist with Thikrullah as Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Your tongue should forever remain moist with the Thikr of Allah.”
A person usually leaves this world with the words which were generally on his tongue. Since this person was addicted to uttering the vulgar words, he departed from the world with the evil abuse. May Allah Ta’ala forgive him and save us all from such calamities. People generally die as they lived, and they will be resurrected in Qiyaamah with those whom they loved and emulated.

THIKR AND THE HEART

Sheikh Abu Abdullah Muhammad Bin Ali Tirmizi Hakeem (rahmatullah alayh) said: “The

Thikr of Allah moistens the heart and cultivates tenderness in it. When the heart is bereft of

Thikrullah, the heat of the nafs overtakes it; the fire of lust reaches it; the heart becomes barren

and hard, and all the limbs refrain from obedience to Allah Ta`ala.”

 
The Strong Mu-min is Better Than the Weak Mu-min (5) PDF Print E-mail

The Proclamation of Allah

Allah Ta’ala loudly proclaims that: My Rasool is departing now. He loudly proclaims:

“Today I have perfected your Deen for you,

completed My favour upon you and I am pleased with Islam as your Deen.”

My Rasool is now ready to depart, but you have to remain firmly on Islam, following in the footsteps of the Rasool. Then My help will be with you till Qiyaamat. This Communication [the Glorious Qur’aan] has been revealed till Qiyaamat. As long as you remain obedient to this Communication with all the power of your Imaan, with all your physical power then forever will the Way of Allah be with you.

Your question is that warfare in former times was conducted differently and hence the victories; now we have aerial warfare! Allah Ta’ala responds: Did I tell you not to use air power when such a time comes?  Did I tell you not to equip yourself with air power? Did I tell you not to arm yourself with these material means? Did I tell you not to use them? In fact, I said that you should accumulate the weapons of war appropriate for the times, to the degree you are able to. Build factories; stockpile.

True Zuhd

Allah Ta’ala says: I am not in need of such abstinence [where the material agencies are even discarded]. The zuhd I desire [to see from you] is that which is devastating [to the enemies of Allah]. Hence I said: “The Strong Mu-min is better than the weak Mu-min.”

So, I do not want such ‘zuhd’, such disinclination [to the world], such detestation [of the world] where you do not equip yourself with weapons, you do not build on your arsenal, you do not manufacture weapons and you break your hands and feet and lay incapacitated on your bed.

On the contrary, you should have these stunning resources and inclusive means, but one’s preoccupation should not be with that. This is the zuhd that is desired.

This humble speaker said a while ago that gold and silver should be scattered around you, but your gaze should be focused on the Giver of these treasures. The heart is not preoccupied with that; it is not obsessed with that; it does not hanker after that; it does not covet that; it does not boast and feel flattered with that. This is the meaning of the gaze being focused on Him.

Zuhd is connected to the heart which is the locus of praiseworthy, beautiful, perfect, wonderful and amazing excellences and character. Zuhd is not what the apparent state of a person conveys. Outwardly you may be the king; the owner of vast amounts of treasures, but the heart is empty of that, then this is not nugatory of zuhd. This is the reality of zuhd.

Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:

The Strong Mu-min is Better Than the Weak Mu-min (4) PDF Print E-mail

Then and Now – No Difference to the Strong Mu-min

Some say that warfare was conducted differently in the former times; face-to-face combat with swords, barrage of spears, barrage of lances and barrage of arrows rained down, therefore forget about those times. Muslims! The enemy says, “Forget about those times”. Even Muslims tell fellow Muslims to discard talk about the circumstances of former times; that should not be brought up in conversation in the scenario facing us in these times. Leave alone fighting with swords, warfare is not even conducted with rifles now. Now war is waged with bombs, and that too, aerial bombardment and missiles launched from hundreds of miles away.

One atomic bomb is sufficient, leave alone several tons! A mushroom cloud forms scattering atoms of dust all over. “Are you drawing an analogy with ancient warfare?” Your analogy is flawed!

So, now wars are not waged with swords in the hands of both armies. Rifles are also obsolete. Now it is airborne warfare.

If you say that our adversary is more formidable in airborne warfare, therefore of what use is our aerial power, we venture to say that the Almighty – Allah Ta’ala – is with the Strong Mu-min. Just as there was Divine Intervention before, there will be Divine Intervention now. Regardless of the firepower and weaponry of this Mu’min Qawi being inferior, he has the help from the Unseen. The superior and greater means of the enemy will fail. All the enemy’s firepower and airpower will be suppressed and extinguished. The Help of Allah will be forthcoming. No weapon can counter the Malaaikah. They will be instructed to stop the airstrike in its tracks. The airstrike will fail. By Allah it is a matter of “Kun fayakoon”. [A mere direction of His will and the object comes into existence.]

This is the world of material causes and hence the Malaaikah will be instructed to thwart the airstrike. Thus, collectively the Mu-mineen with Power of Imaan, as put forward in detail, can never be defeated; can never feel threatened. When these Mu-mineen can never be threatened then they will not become frightened. Their external limbs and internal faculties will remain intact and protected. They will contrive ways which never crossed the minds of others, for the help of the Almighty is with them.

Variety in Power of Wealth

I explained just now, whilst elaborating on the Strong Mu-min, what are the types of power; self-respect, wealth, etc. The details were given.

Wealth again consists of a variety of means. The need is to acquire the material power relevant to the time. When the need is for rock-hard fists and feet then fists and feet should be used. When the need is for sticks and staffs then these should be at hand. If you are in the time of swords, carry swords. If rifles are being used then the need is to arm oneself with a rifle. The age of canons requires canons. The age of airborne warfare requires air power.

All these are wealth; what else? Is wealth only money? Is wealth only paper notes? These are also wealth. So, whatever the strength of wealth may be in any given time, the need is to acquire that wealth.

 

 

No Change in the System of Allah

Although a Strong Mu-min will have little of such power, regardless, he will be victorious over those who have plenty of it, because the help of Allah Ta’ala is with such a Strong Mu-min. “Today no one will defeat you.” You will be victorious.

Have you understood this, or have you still not yet understood?
