And We had already tried before them the people of Pharaoh, and there came to them a noble messenger, [Saying], “Render to me the servants of Allah . Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger,” And [saying], “Be not haughty with Allah . Indeed, I have come to you with clear authority. And indeed, I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me. But if you do not believe me, then leave me alone.” And [finally] he called to his Lord that these were a criminal people. [ Allah said], “Then set out with My servants by night. Indeed, you are to be pursued. And leave the sea in stillness. Indeed, they are an army to be drowned.” How much they left behind of gardens and springs And crops and noble sites And comfort wherein they were amused. Thus. And We caused to inherit it another people. And the heaven and earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved. (Holy Qur’aan ~ Surah Dukhaan ~ Ayat 17_29)

A Spiritual Heart Attack

Analogy adapted from a Zikr Majlis

The effect of sins, has accumulated and congested our hearts. Our hearts in turn, have become hard and distant from the Mercy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

A person who has a heart problem suffers with many health complications. Blocked arteries, cholesterol and high blood pressure are serious ailments that require prescribed medication. When a person does not bother about his health, omits medication, leads a stressful life and does not abide by the doctor’s forewarning, the consequences to his heart will be severe.

 Plaque (fat and cholesterol deposits) accumulates and causes the arteries to narrow. Oxygen does not flow freely throughout the body and the circulation of blood becomes stagnated. Other organs start failing and are unable to function efficiently. The person is faced with a serious condition and is likely to end up in hospital and undergo a heart bypass.

Likewise …

Our hearts have become so attached to the things of the world that we have become heedless of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. We have caused spiritual damage to our hearts through spiritual cholesterol (pride, malice, jealousy, anger) and high blood pressure (love of dunya).

When the heart becomes spiritually sick (with sins), then the eyes, hands, feet and mind become spiritually sick as well. These limbs will not function properly (due to a decrease in righteous deeds and the clogging of the heart through immoral acts). A person will get evil thoughts and move towards Haraam very swiftly. One will not be able to restrain oneself and keep one’s heart ‘spiritually alive’ easily with these complications.

If we are not going to ‘purify our souls’ (Tazkiyah An-Nafs) by washing and cleansing our heart through Zikrullah, obeying Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam’s commands and detaching ourselves from the vanities of the world … it will result in a ‘Spiritual Heart Attack‘

Please Allah Alone ~ Develop Ikhlaas (Sincerity) in your Heart

 Adapted from a Majlis of Moulana Naeem Motala SB 

وَمَآ أُمِرُوٓا۟ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ ٱلدِّينَ حُنَفَآءَ وَيُقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَيُؤْتُوا۟ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ ۚ وَذَٰلِكَ دِينُ ٱلْقَيِّمَةِ

Ingredients of Ikhlaas

Allah is well aware of what is in our hearts. There must not be a speck of insincerity in our heart. The nature of our intentions should be purely and solely for the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. Ikhlaas means ‘to free something’ ~ Free your heart and free your intention from everybody else besides Allah. Any action we do must be pleasing to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam and in conformity of the Shariah. The two important ingredients of any action performed are, adhering to the Sunnah and implementing Sincerity. The beginning of all actions is Sincerity (ikhlaas)

Innamal a’malu binniyat ~ “Actions are dependent upon their Intentions”

Innamal.a’amaalu.binniyaat.hadith.bukhari

عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ، رضى الله عنه قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ إِنَّمَا الأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّةِ وَإِنَّمَا لاِمْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَإِلَى رَسُولِهِ فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَإِلَى رَسُولِهِ وَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى دُنْيَا يُصِيبُهَا أَوِ امْرَأَةٍ يَنْكِحُهَا فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِ ‏“‏ ‏.‏

 On the authority of Omar bin Al-Khattab, who said : I heard the messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam say : “Actions are but by intention and every man shall have but that which he intended. Thus he whose migration was for Allah and His messenger, his migration was for Allah and His messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated.” ~ Related by Bukhari and Muslim 

 ____________

There is nothing in the Ahadith of the Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam that is as comprehensive, rich, and more beneficial than this Hadith. Imam Bukhari RA selected the first hadith, ‘Innamal a’malu binniyat’ of Sahih Bukhari Shareef as an introduction to the whole collection. It shows the sincerity of purpose of the author and also warns the reader that good and noble deeds inculcated by the Hadith found therein will only bear fruit if there is sincerity attached to their intentions and would be worthless if the motive is not sincere. Therefore, the one who is seeking (Taalib), the one who is listening or the one who is reading the book also corrects his intention solely for the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Analogy

An Analogy discussed >The roots of a tree are hidden beneath the soil. The presence of roots give rise to the sprouting of branches, leaves and fruit. If the roots are destroyed, the entire tree will decay and become decomposed and will not flourish. Similarly, the roots of the tree represent Ikhlaas … Ikhlaas is the root of all our deeds and actions (A’maal).

One must conceal one’s deeds (like the roots of a tree) to develop Ikhlaas. When Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala loves a person’s action (done with Ikhlaas) then He will bring it to the attention of people without the person striving for it through show (Riya). In Deen we require this Ikhfaa (concealment) and must hide our deeds, and not do things for show and ostentation. Do all your worship in private and conceal it like you would conceal sins.

However, there are also times when we have to perform deeds in public. The example given is of a person who is travelling, and the time for Salaah has set in. One is not going to to hide and read one’s Salaah. If one performs Salaah openly then disbelievers might see the beauty of Salaah and it will be an invitation towards Deen.

 These deeds performed privately and in public (solely for the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) together with Ikhlaas (the concealed ‘roots’) brings about the beauty of Islam.

Hadith highlighting the Importance of Sincerity

Hadith Qudsi 6 ~ On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) say: The first of people against whom judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died a martyr. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [ The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I fought for you until I died a martyr. He will say: You have lied – you did but fight that it might be said [of you]: He is courageous. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire. [Another] will be a man who has studied [religious] knowledge and has taught it and who used to recite the Quran. He will be brought and Allah will make known to his His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I studied [religious] knowledge and I taught it and I recited the Quran for Your sake. He will say: You have lied – you did but study [religious] knowledge that it might be said [of you]: He is learned. And you recited the Quran that it might be said [of you]: He is a reciter. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire. [Another] will be a man whom Allah had made rich and to whom He had given all kinds of wealth. He will be brought and Allah will make known to his His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I left no path [untrodden] in which You like money to be spent without spending in it for Your sake. He will say: You have lied – you did but do so that it might be said [of you]: He is open-handed. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire. ~ Related by Muslim (also by at-Tirmidhi and an-Nasa’i)

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar Radiyallahu ‘anhuma narrates: I heard Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam saying: Three people (of an Ummah) before you, set out on a journey and they took refuge in a cave to spend the night. A rock slid from the mountain and blocked the cave. They said: Indeed you cannot be relieved from this rock, except that you invoke Allah on the basis of your good deeds. So one of them said: O Allah! I had very aged parents and I would not give milk to my children and other members of my family and slaves before my parents. One day I went far away in quest of something and I could not return to my parents before they had slept. I milked the evening milk for them and found that they were asleep. I disliked to give milk to my children and other members of my family and slaves to drink before them. So I stood by them, with the bowl of milk in my hand, waiting for them to wake up till it dawned. Then they woke up and they drank their evening’s share of the milk. O Allah! If I had done so to please You, relieve us from the distress imposed upon us by this rock. So the rock moved a little resulting in a small opening; but not enough for them to get out.

Nabi Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam then said that the second man said: O Allah! I had a cousin, whom I loved more than anybody. I desired to satisfy my lust with her, but she refused. Subsequently, a year of famine forced her to approach me. I gave her one hundred and twenty Dinars on the condition that she would yield herself to me. So she agreed and when I was able to get a hold on her she said: It is not permitted for you to break the seal of virginity except by its lawful right (that, is by marriage). I restrained myself from falling upon her and I walked away from her, though she was the most beloved of people to me, and I left the Dinars with her. O Allah! If I had done so to please You, then relieve us from the distress that we are suffering. So again the rock moved a little resulting in a small opening; but they were still unable to get out.

Nabi Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam then said that the third one invoked: O Allah! I hired the services of some labourers and paid all of them their wages except one, who departed without taking what was due to him. I invested his wage in a business and the business prospered immensely. He came back to me after a long time and said: O slave of Allah! Pay me my due. I replied: All that you see is yours: camels, cattle, sheep and slaves. He said: O slave of Allah! Do not make fun of me. So I said: I am not joking with you. So, he took all of it and drove away not leaving anything. O Allah! If I had done so, to please You, then relieve us from this distress. So the rock moved aside, and they got out walking freely. (Bukhari) ~ Volume 8, Book 73, Number 5 – Bukhari

Abu Sa’id Radiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam came out from his house to us while we were talking about Dajjal. Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: Should I not tell you what causes me more fear for you than Dajjal? We replied: Certainly, yes. Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: Shirk-ul-Khafi (hidden polytheism), like a man who gets up to offer Salah and tries to improve his Salah because he sees someone looking at him.

Erase your Sins with Taubah and Istighfaar

November 6, 2012

0 Comments

Ponder on what type of life do we want to enjoy? A heedless life of committing sinful haraam acts or a life of taqwa and piety? … When we are weak and feeble in our obedience to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, the word Taqwa (piety) that we so often hear, seems so difficult to attain … However, when we decide to take that baby step towards Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, He will most definitely come running towards us! … Through regular Taubah (repentance) and Istighfaar (seeking forgiveness), one can gain the enjoyment of Taqwa.

If one is embarking on a distant journey by car, after some time, dust and dirt will collect on the windscreen. So, we use the windscreen wiper to remove the filth and grime that has come onto the windscreen. Without using the windscreen wiper, we wont be able to see the road clearly and we will have a problem driving. Istighfaar is like a windscreen wiper. It wipes out and washes away all the filth that clouds our hearts.  When we reach our destination, we need to take our car for a carwash … and that is Taubah! … Taubah is scrubbing and shining that heart of ours. Turning to Allah … Begging Allah … Crying to Allah … We regret committing those sins … We abandon those sins and promise not to go back to those sins …

November 5, 2012

Hadith

On the authority of Abu Dhar Jundub bin Junadah, and Muadh bin Jabal that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said :  “Fear Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good one it will wipe it out, and behave well towards people.” ~ Tirmidhi

 …

Important aspects discussed in this Hadith :

• Fear Allah in public and in privacy and be mindful that Allah is watching him

• He should perform those actions that Allah has commanded him and refrain from prohibited actions that will earn Allah’s displeasure

• Good deeds wipe out bad deeds

• Establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night

• Deal and meet with people with good character (Husnul Khuluq)

DOWNLOAD EXPLANATION HERE

We all have weaknesses within ourselves that we need to improve on. So often we may be performing excessive Ibaadat but when it comes to dealing with people and displaying good character then we fail. Nobody is perfect, but in Islam, it is essential that we should should strive in attaining good character and rectifying the shortcomings within ourselves.
