Ibaad ur Rahmaan ~ The True Slaves of Allah ~ Moulana Naeem Motala SB

July 17, 2012




And the slaves of the Rahman are those who walk on the earth humbly and when the ignorant people speak to them, they reply peacefully, [63] and those who pass the night prostrating and standing before their Lord, [64] and those who say, “Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Jahannam; indeed, its punishment is a persisting affliction. [65] Indeed, evil it is as an abode and a place to dwell in [66] – and those who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor miserly, and it (i.e. their spending) is moderate in between (the two extremes) [67] – and those who do not invoke any other god along with Allah, and do not kill a person whom Allah has given sanctity, except rightfully, nor do they fornicate; and whoever does it, shall face the recompense of his sin, [68] the punishment will be doubled for him and he will remain there disdained, for ever, [69] except the one who repents and believes and does good deeds, then Allah will change the bad deeds of such people into good ones, and Allah is Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful. [70] And whoever repents and does righteous deeds turns to Allah truly [71] – and those who do not witness falsehood, and when they pass by the absurd things, Pass by with dignity [72] and those who, when they are reminded of the verses of their Lord, do not fall at them as deaf and blind ones [73] – and those who say, “Our Lord, Give us, from our spouses and our children, coolness of eyes and make us heads of the God-fearing. [74] ~ Surah Furqaan : Verses 63~74


In these closing verses of Surah Furqaan, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has mentioned and awarded the title of ‘Ibaad ur Rahmaan’ (True Slaves of Allah) to His honourable and favoured servants.

Rujoo’ilallah- Returning to Allah ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

July 9, 2012


بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اَللّهُِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

When a child is born, it is weak, cannot fend for itself and is dependent on the nurturing of parents. It comes into this world without any knowledge and Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala develops the faculties of this child as it grows. Each day is a day of enjoyment for the parents, to watch this child transforming from the womb of its mother, to an infant, to a teenager, to an adult and then towards old age … Similarly, we all are Musaafir’s (traveller’s), moving through various spiritual stages in this life (Dunya) towards our original abode (Aahkirah) … Each day we are journeying to where we came from, ‘Returning to Allah’ (Rujoo’ilallah) …

The environment which we are living in, is undoubtedly very challenging. A person is in such a predicament that all around him, he is being enticed and tempted towards sin. Therefore, the consciousness we supposed to be having every moment our life, wherever we may be, in privacy or in public, is … my Allah is watching me … my Allah is seeing me … my Allah is hearing me … my Allah is well aware of me!

If a person takes one step towards the love of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, he will immediately feel Sukoon (peace) and if a person takes one step towards Gunah (sin) then, he will immediately be restless….A few days in this fleeting world and a little bit of Ibadat and we will be granted a perpetual and everlasting Jannah (paradise) … Allah (Al-Shakur) washes away our sins and opens His doors of Mercy, provided we ‘turn’ and ‘return’ to Him with sincere Taubah and Istighfaar!

When Yusuf AS, was trapped and then seduced to commit Zinna … think of how he immediately focussed his attention to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, and sought refuge in Him …

When Ibraheem AS was being tested and thrown into an inferno (blazing fire) … think of how he did not denounce his faith, and placed his full reliance and trust only in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala  …

When Yunus AS was being tested in a distressful situation in the belly of the fish … think of how he finally called out to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala to be his savior….

Turn to Allah! ” (Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB)

Whenever we are faced with difficulties and challenges and there seems no escape from our predicament, think of the Ambiya AS who were also confronted with great trials and tribulations but they turned to Allah and placed their firm trust and reliance in Him alone.

The Shining Stars 5 ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

July 8, 2012



After listening to so many biographies of the Sahaba RA (guiding stars), we should pose a question to ourselves … What is our condition? What lessons have we learnt from their lives? What positive changes have we made in our lives?

‘”There is no doubt that after Ambiya AS, this world has never seen, nor would ever see a group like the Sahaba RA’ … Before accepting Islam the Sahaba RA were non-entities, but after accepting Islam they became prominent personalities. Allah gave them such honour, dignity and respect!” …(Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB)

We should make a firm intention and some effort, to imitate and ingrain the teachings, advices, Akhlaaq and character of Sahaba RA (guiding stars) in our life. Then Allah rewards us, opens the way, protects us from evil, saves us from sin and lights up our heart!

Moulana, discusses an incident in the life of Hazrat Abdullah RA (‘Zulbijaadain’ – possessor of two sheets), which inspires and makes us desirous to have the fate of this poverty-stricken Sahabi. After accepting Islam and being disowned by his disbelieving uncle, he was discovered by Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam at His doorstep wrapped in two sheets. Yearning for death as a Shaheed (Martyr), this close companion was struck with severe fever and was blessed to be buried at the ‘Hands of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam’

Laylatul Bara’ah ~ Night of Emancipation ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

July 7, 2012


بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اَللّهُِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

 During this auspicious Night of Bara’ah, multitudes of people are forgiven. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala emancipates thousands of souls this night from the fire of Jahannum (bara’ah means emancipation) … Allah focuses His special attention towards those seeking his forgiveness during this night. So many are forgiven that are equivalent to the number of strands of hair on the goats of the Banu Kalb tribe (a very large tribe with a huge number of livestock). However, there are some who are not forgiven and are deprived of the blessings of this great night … Unless they make amends and totally refrain from their particular evil traits :

•  Those who harbour enmity

•  Those who worship idols (idolater)

•  Those who break family ties

•  Those who disobey parents

•  Those who are perpetual alcoholics

•  Those who commit adultery

•  Those who commit murders

Moulana, narrated a very intriguing story of Maalik bin Dinar R.A and his transformation from a drunkard to becoming a Wali of Allah …

A man who made sincere Taubah (repentance) giving us (sinners) ‘true hope’ in the Mercy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala despite our weakness.

“Concentrate on the Greatness of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala … Say La’illaha’illallah … Negate and remove all the filth we have in our hearts … Anger, pride, jealousy, enmity and say Ill’allah! … Fill in our hearts only Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala … Feel that all the filth is just being thrown out and is being washed away completely! … And now, the Noor of Allah is coming into our hearts and making our hearts bright!” (Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB)

Allah Loves you! … Don’t Despair ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

July 1, 2012


بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اَللّهُِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

Extract taken from Weekly Tafseer Discourses : Our Respected Shaykh, Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB explains :

Throughout the Noble Qur’aan, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala talks about ; the horrors of the Day of Qiyamah, the beautiful Jannah (Paradise) that He has prepared for the pious (believers) and the Hell-Fire (Jahannum) that He has prepared for those who reject Him (Disbelievers) … In Surah Ad~Dahr, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala addresses the mortals on aspects related to the events of Resurrection. The disbelievers could not understand that if a person dies and his body integrates with the soil then how will this person be raised once again on the Day of Resurrection? Allah proves to them His ability to raise them in their original form by drawing their attention to man’s inception … Man’s origin from a drop of sperm.

None of us are free of sins … We are human beings (Insaan) … But, Allah has these “exit passages” for us to come out of this wretched and miserable life of vice, evil, sin and disobedience. 

The fire of sin that burns in a persons heart makes him restless …

When the heart becomes infested and corroded, then a person (with even a spark of Imaan) feels some pain and regret!  The enjoyment when committing sins does not stay for long … One’s heart becomes restless. The flames of sins cause it to become uneasy. It is blazing and hence searches frantically to become cooled and extinguished. It searches for peace and serenity. The sinner has lost his true direction and goal. He now wishes to seek his true Beloved … his Creator and Benefactor … his Beloved Allah!

Allah (Al Wadud) loves us! … But, Allah has put us into this world to test us … An examination that we all have to go through … We will undoubtedly go through trials and tribulations … Allah looks for numerous opportunities and reasons to forgive us and to draw us closer and closer to Him … Never lose hope in the Mercy of Allah …

‘Allah enters into His Mercy whomsoever He wishes’ ~ Surah Ad~Dahr 76:31
