TAQWA OF THE EYES

 

Explanation:  Allah Ta’ala says: “Those who strive in our (Path), we will most certainly guide him to our paths”

Nabi Sallallahu alayhi wasallam once pointed to his sacred heart and said: “Taqwa lies here…”

Hadhrat Moulana Maseehullah Rahmatullahi alayh said:

“How much courage one displays in observing Taqwa, so much Divine assistance will be experience.”

From the above, we understand that Divine Guidance and Nusrat (Help) is dependent upon the courage displayed.  Courage is to overcome the Nafs when it throws a tantrum and to suppress its demands by force.

Example: A person’s gaze unintentionally falls upon a beautiful woman. If he desires to fear Allah, Allah will send a “message” to his heart:

“Fear me, O my servant. I am watching you!”

The person now has a choice: He either heeds this “silent alarm” or neglects it.

His Nafs strongly pulls and drags him towards looking at the beautiful woman. The Nafs loves Haraam cravings, which are like a drug for the Nafs. Shaytaan plays an advisory role and whispers to the person to look at that beautiful woman whose face is framed with a scarf: “Come on, man, just look once more. She is smart. Her complexion is dazzling, her hair cascades to her shoulders like silky strands. Look, man, look!”

If this person is desirous to reach Allah and to obtain His Pleasure, the person will pluck up courage and tear away his gaze from the woman. It may be difficult, but if he is sincere and passionate, he will pluck up the courage. Do we not see sincere people scaling high, high mountains and exploring the deepest oceans and leaping from space – unmindful of sacrificing their lives? They worship the idols called Name and Fame. They make Ruk’u and Sujood to them. 

A Muslim thinks hard. He thinks quickly. He thinks on his feet.

“What will I answer unto Allah? Did Allah not warn me that ‘He knoweth the betrayal of the eyes…’

My wife may not  be here to witness my disloyalty but Allah is Here, watching me, testing me. How will I handle the red hot iron rods which will be shoved into my eyes for the sin I am about to commit?  How ashamed will I not be on that Day when the eyes will speak of my treachery?

The Imaan of the person screams out: ‘Don’t look! Fear Allah! Allah will punish you. He will place revulsion in the heart of your wife for you! You will suddenly find her to be cold and unloving despite you showering her with gifts. Fear Allah lest your Rizq decrease because of your sin. Fear Him or you will suffer otherwise. You cannot escape Allah. He is everywhere. You are being watched and your gaze is being recorded second by second!”

Again, it all depends on sincerity. A person whose soul is dead won’t see or hear anything accept that which Shaytan and his Nafs show him. Such a person is not being addressed. Such a person cannot be reformed. A precondition for Islaah (self-reformation) is Ikhlaas (sincerity).

A sincere person will heed his Imaani conscience. He will FEAR Allah, Insha-Allah. His Taqwa will be so strong that he would prefer blindness to a sight of sin, Insha-Allah.

The person will take an arrow from the armoury of His Imaani weapons and shoot it at his Nafs and Shaytaan. And Allah, who’s Pleasure he craves, will make his aim true.

The Nafs will stumble and fall, Shaytaan will tremble and flee. For that moment, with the Fadh’l and Grace of Allah, the person will conquer his greatest enemies.  He is victorious in the most major of Jihaads. His enemies will fear him because he chose to fear Allah.

The angels in the skies applaud him. Gifts from the heavens are showered upon him. His soul will be given a sip of the deliciousness and sweetness of Imaan. He has feared Allah without seeing Allah or Jahannam!  He brought Imaan on Ghaib (The unseen). He is amongst the “ Muflihoon”. (Successful ones)

And if had he deliberately looked at that billboard with a beautiful woman on it, or at that receptionist or at that secretary or at that customer etc, the joy would have been temporary but the consequences would have been devastating.

May Allah Ta’ala safeguard us all from our Nafs. Ameen

MARRIAGE AND FALSE EXPECTATIONS

Whilst much preparations are made for elaborate weddings, both the bride and the groom receive almost no tuition and coaching about the challenges which lay ahead.

Much time and effort goes into shopping and the preparations for the BIG DAY.

However, for the many days to come, very little is done. Thus many couples enter into a Nikaah with false expectations of being “happy ever after”.

It is vitally important that both the groom and the bride be mentally prepared  for the challenges which lay ahead. Marriage is a life changer.

Both parties should understand that by entering into a Nikaah, the days of freedom are gone. There will be a whole set on new responsibilities.

From day one, life has changed forever. It is best to address some of the undermentioned issues before marriage so that future disputes may be avoid.

Both parties should also mentally prepare themselves for the challenges lying ahead. Before rushing into a marriage, thorough investigations should be made.

 

HOPE FOR THE BEST…

Sayings of Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb - Episodes and lessons from the life of Hazrat Moula


THE STRONG MU-MIN IS BETTER THAN THE WEAK MU'MIN PT2

Al-Mu-minul Qawi Khairum Minal Mu-minidh-Dha’eef

Khair (noble/good/better) is used in contrast to sharr (evil/worse). The Strong Mu-min who has ridded himself of the sharr of bashar (natural human propensity of evil) is better than the weak Mu-min. We learn from this that some Believers are strong whilst others are weak. The status quo has been defined.

So what did Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) say? “A strong Mu-min is better than a weak Mu-min”. The administration and the work from such a Mu-min can never be delivered by a weak Mu-min. A weak Mu-min is powerless to carry out such actions, neither for himself, that is on a personal level, and nor is he qualified to serve the community. He is neither successful in his personal endeavours of supervision and performance and nor are his administrative and active ventures for the people successful, as he is weak.

Tasawwuf - Sayings of Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanvi (R.A)

HOW TO REACH ALLAH TA'ALA

The only way to reach Haq Ta’aala is to rid oneself of Akhlaaq e Razeelah (the lowly qualities), to develop Akhlaaq e Hameedah (the beautiful qualities) and the acquisition of Taufeeq i.e. guidance towards obedience (from Allah). Negligence of Allah disappears and attention towards Allah develops. (Click here to learn more on how to become the friend of Allah)

Tasawwuf - Sayings of Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanvi (R.A)

ADDICTION TO SIN

It is logical that the more a part of the body or faculty is excersised, the stronger it becomes. On the basis of this same principle, the carnal lust will not be satisfied by casting a lustful glance.  On the contrary the root of the evil will become stronger.  One should not be deceived by the satisfaction derived from an evil glance. This satisfaction is temporary.  Soon the urge will assert itself with greater forcee.  It is like a drug addict deriving temporary satisfaction from drugs.  The effect soon dissipates and the urge for more is stronger.

HADHRATS HUMILITY

Once Hadhrat said: I am fasting and I take an oath that there is no one lower and more disgraceful than me in this world. On another occasion he said: I consider myself to be lower than every Muslim presently and lower than every Kaafir as far as the future is concerned. (This means that a Kaafir can accept Islam and become a better person).

Sayings of Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb

- Television is there to destroy the Imaan of a Muslim

- Today there is an abundance of shrewdness and a scarcity of intelligence

- Today you find plenty Huffaaz,Qaris and Molvies, but you don't find true human beings

- Do not become angry over every mishap

- The one who asks (from Allah) is never deprived

- The one who fears Allah is always protected

- One has to endure hardships when travelling

Problems with live streaming ???

SOWTUL IMAAN ...

Sowtul Imaan is our web streaming  service.

Alternatively one can also live stream from a mobile device by logging in to: http://www.thejamiat.co.za/mobile. As long as you have an internet connection you will be able to live stream the bayaans.

Below are few requirements to assist with Bayaan live streaming.

You will require enough dedicated Internet bandwidth to receive the stream.

  • Furthermore please keep in mind there are a few different service providers e.g. MTN, Cell C, Vodacom etc. and also different ways of connecting to the internet e.g. 3G, Wi-Fi and ADSL so you may experience different quality issues and may encounter delays introduced by congestion on the Internet. Unfortunately, there is not much that can be done to rectify this problem.

Always check your volume setting before trying to access the stream.

A few common problems that you may encounter

Buffering: Buffering is when your player stutters/buffers a few seconds of the stream before playing it, this is to avoid interruptions of the live stream when bandwidth instabilities occurs on your used Internet connection. If you lose the streaming connection, the media player will buffer for a few seconds before re-connecting.

No audio: If the stream plays but there is no audio, check the media player and soundcard’s volume (check that it is not muted).

Nothing happens when clicking on the link: Most likely it’s because you have a pop-up blocker installed. Please allow pop ups / temporary allow pop ups in your browser.                                    

Getting disconnected: In the event while listening to the bayaan you are disconnected, please try reconnecting after a minute or so there could be a possibility the streaming website experiences a glitch or some other issue.
