September 11, 2016




وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَشَدُّ حُبًّا لِّلَّهِ
But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah ~ Surah Al Baqarah 2:165

5 Ways of Generating the Love of Allah Ta’ala into Our Hearts

1 • Abundant remembrance of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala through Zikrullah. The more a person makes the Zikr of Allah, the more HIS love increases in a persons heart.

2 •  Pondering over the innumerable Ni’mats (bounties) that Allah Ta’ala has bestowed upon us.

When one contemplates over the continuous bounties Allah has showered upon him, then the response to Allah would be, that one begins to love Allah, (his BENEFACTOR ) more and more …

3 • Keeping the company of the friends of Allah Ta’ala, in whose companionship, the effects of Allah Ta’ala’s Muhhabbat (love) is engendered into our hearts.

4 • Remaining in the obedience of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. The more one obeys his Beloved, the more his love  increases.

5 • Making Dua to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala to instil HIS love into our heart.

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّىْ اَسْئَلُكَ حُبَّكَ وَ حُبَّ مَنْ يُّحِبُّكَ وحُبَّ عَمَلٍ يُّقَرِّبُ اِلى حُبِّكَ
Allahumma inni as-aluka hubbaka, wa hubba may-yuhibbuka, wa hubba ‘amalin yuqarribu ila hubbika

O Allah! I ask You for Your love and the love of those who love You, and for the love of every action which will bring me closer to Your love.

The Abounding Mercy of Allah Ta’ala and a Recipe for Combating Depression

September 3, 2014

Comments Off on The Abounding Mercy of Allah Ta’ala and a Recipe for Combating Depression

Excerpts from ~ Ramadaan 1435 Programmes



In Surah Al-Fatir :

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, after Praising Himself (and Only Allah deserves all Praise and is worthy of all Praise), mentions :

مَّا يَفْتَحِ اللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ مِن رَّحْمَةٍ فَلَا مُمْسِكَ لَهَا ۖ وَمَا يُمْسِكْ فَلَا مُرْسِلَ لَهُ مِن بَعْدِهِ ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ

Whatever Allah grants to people of mercy  – none can withhold it;
and whatever He withholds – none can release it thereafter. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise
~ Surah Al’Fatir 35:2

When Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala opens His doors of Mercy, then there can be no person that can hold back that Mercy from coming down… no person in the world, no person on the earth, no being (Angel or jinn) in the skies, can hold back that Mercy from coming upon that person. And, when Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, withholds that Mercy from coming down upon any person, then nobody can bring that Mercy down.

• All Power and Qudrat (Might) lies with Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala alone.


In another verse :

 لَا يَعْزُبُ عَنْهُ مِثْقَالُ ذَرَّةٍ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَلَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا أَصْغَرُ مِن ذَٰلِكَ وَلَا أَكْبَرُ إِلَّا فِي كِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ

Not hidden from Him is an atom’s weight within the heavens or within the earth or [what is] smaller than that or greater, except that it is in a clear register ~ Surah Saba 34:3

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala’s knowledge is All-Encompassing and Infinite. A tiny particle, be it in the earth, above the earth, below the earth, above the skies, between the skies and the earth, no matter how big, no matter how small is all recorded in a Book and in the knowledge of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala …Nothing is hidden from Allah.

Man may need a binoculars, or a microscope to see tiny particles, but Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala requires none of these. Even the thoughts that run through our mind … the thoughts that are contained in our heart … the evil thoughts and intentions that go through our mind, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala is well aware of them all.

• We are all dependant upon Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.


Allah has conferred a title upon all of us. Allah has called us Fuqaraa (beggars).

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala mentions :

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ أَنتُمُ الْفُقَرَاءُ إِلَى اللَّهِ ۖ وَاللَّهُ هُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ

O mankind, you are those in need of Allah, while Allah is the Free of need, the Praiseworthy ~ Surah Fatir 35:15

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says, Oh people, every single one of you are beggars. You are totally dependant upon Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. But Allah Himself is  Al-Ghani (Independent), and Al-Hameed (full of Praise). Allah does not need our praises. Allah has many other creation of His to praise Him. He has Angels to Praise Him …

The Riwayaat (Narrations of Hadith) mention that from the time Allah created certain Angels, some are in the Ruku (bowing) position (reading the tasbeeh of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), others in Sujood (prostration), some in the Qiyaam (standing) position … Allah is infact not even in need of these Angels to praise him!


Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala mentions :

وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلَّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَلَٰكِن لَّا تَفْقَهُونَ تَسْبِيحَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيمًا غَفُورًا

And there is not a thing except that it exalts [ Allah ] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving
~ Surah Isra ~ 17:44

Every single thing that Allah has created Glorifies HIM and makes HIS Tasbeeh, but man will not understand their Praises of Allah. Allah does not need anyone to Praise Him. Allah is absolutely Independent! We require Allah every second of our life … And therefore we should make Dua to Allah to bless us with His Mercy.

Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel RA, gave a very simple example saying that in the month of Ramdaan, the mercies of Allah begin descending like torrential rains. We do not have the type of hearts to ‘see’ those mercies descending, because of our sins. Everyone goes out with buckets to fill his bucket with water, but, one person decides to go out with his bucket turned upside down. He will deprive himself and never fill that bucket with any water. Similarly, Allah’s Mercy comes down like torrential rains … Let us not deprive ourselves of this Mercy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala …

All of us know deep down what sins we have committed. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala is so kind and so Sattaar (concealing) that He hides our faults and does not expose us. In the time of the Bani Israeel, if any person committed a sin at night, then the following morning, it would be written on his front door, that last night this person has committed such and such sin …. Allah has not done this to the Ummat of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam. We commit sins and Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala hides those sins. Allah looks for opportunities to forgive us! When we make Taubah and Istighfaar, Allah completely washes away those sins. We sin again and again and Allah repeatedly hides those sins from mankind … We make Taubah and Allah washes it away again and again … Allah continues to be so Kareem, so Merciful.



Allama Aalusi RA, (in his Tafsir of the Qur’an, Ruh al-Ma’ani) mentions a remedy/recipe for all those who suffer from depression, distress, anxiety, fear, and various worries of Dunya. All of us (professionals and the ordinary laymen), go through different worries. Peoples natures differ … some people become extremely stressed and anxious. They become overwhelmed with worries, fears etc …

So he mentions that : “Every morning he contemplates on four verses of the Quraan Shareef, and through the blessings of these verses, Allah removes all his worries and gives him such strength and conviction in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, that he does not bother about anything thereafter” …


* These verses are :


مَّا يَفْتَحِ اللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ مِن رَّحْمَةٍ فَلَا مُمْسِكَ لَهَا ۖ وَمَا يُمْسِكْ فَلَا مُرْسِلَ لَهُ مِن بَعْدِهِ ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ
Whatever Allah grants to people of mercy- none can withhold it; and whatever He withholds – none can release it thereafter. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise
~ Surah Fatir 35:2

Whatever Mercy Allah opens and sends down… there can be no person that can withhold that Mercy from coming down; and when Allah decides to hold back that Mercy then there can be nobody that can force it down … If this is the decision of my Allah, then I am happy. If i am going to be prosperous today, then it is the Mercy of Allah and if Allah is going to hold back His Mercy, then there is no need for me to become distressed.



وَإِن يَمْسَسْكَ اللَّهُ بِضُرٍّ فَلَا كَاشِفَ لَهُ إِلَّا هُوَ ۖ وَإِن يُرِدْكَ بِخَيْرٍ فَلَا رَادَّ لِفَضْلِهِ ۚ يُصِيبُ بِهِ مَن يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ ۚ وَهُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ
And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful
~ Surah Yunus 10:107

When Allah sends some pain or suffering upon anyone, then there is no person who can remove that harm and pain from him, besides Allah. If Allah decides Khayr (good) for any person then nobody can repel that good. No power can repel that good because Allah has decreed good for that person. And Allah is most powerful.



إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا

Indeed, with hardship [will be] ease
~ Surah Ash-Sharh ~ 94:6

After every difficulty, there is always ease and comfort. Many people go through some challenges in life and when it seems as though it is just increasing and not decreasing, they begin to lose hope. They become frustrated …

However, in reality, Allah loves those whom He tests. Ambiya AS encountered the most difficult tests, and then those after them who were close to Allah faced difficulties in life.
Remember, after every difficulty there must be an opening … This is the promise of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala does not send tests upon tests and gives one no comfort or relief whatsoever. We sometimes feel that these difficulties are coming in succession, yet we don’t ponder and reflect that there were indeed intervals of ease that we enjoyed as well, which we overlook and take no notice of. Perhaps one may have experienced some financial difficulty or ill health, BUT was also able to breathe, see, hear and move one’s limbs….

Allah Ta’ala Tests Those Who HE Loves:

An example : A father loves his child most dearly … and this child wants a sweet or chocolate from the father … The father will give it to him…..But before he gives it to him, he picks up the chocolate higher and higher and makes the child jump for it. The child is desperate for the chocolate and tries to jump higher .. But after a while, the child’s face changes colour and is almost tearing. It  tries again harder and harder to aim and reach for the chocolate. Then suddenly the child bursts into tears and begins to scream and cry …The father feels pity  and then quickly gives the child the chocolate …

Similarly, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala loves us and does the same to us. We have read in the Quraan and Hadith, about how loving Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala is and how Allah loves every single one of us. We all require to have hope in the mercy of Allah. Tests will prevail … but there is always ease thereafter. After every difficulty must come ease and we are required to put all our hopes in Allah.



وَمَا مِن دَابَّةٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ إِلَّا عَلَى اللَّهِ رِزْقُهَا وَيَعْلَمُ مُسْتَقَرَّهَا وَمُسْتَوْدَعَهَا ۚ كُلٌّ فِي كِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ
And there is no creature on earth but that upon Allah is its provision, and He knows its place of dwelling and place of storage. All is in a clear register ~ Surah Hud ~ 11:6

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has taken it upon Himself to sustain and feed His Makhlooq (Creation), whether it is a human being, animal, jinn, insect, bird. Of course, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala wants us to make an effort and acquire our sustenance in a halaal way.  After making a halaal effort, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala will most assuredly grant us halaal rozi (sustenance). So, there is no need for stress that will ultimately lead us to depression.

• Whatever is allotted to you will most definitely be yours.


If a person ponders over these “four verses”, he will discover that it is a prescription/ recipe from all types of Depression Insha-Allah.

… Why should one stress then?

Beg from Allah and place our reliance only upon Him!

Zikr ~ Nourishment for the Soul

December 21, 2012




We must make the Zikr of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala every single day. This is ‘Nourishment for our Soul’ … Without Zikr, our soul wont be nourished. By making Zikr continuously, Allah Ta’ala brightens our heart … Allah Ta’ala illuminates our heart … The filth from our hearts disappear … The sins that we commit get washed away … Then we have that close bond (Ta’aluk) with Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala …

 We will find that in this world, Allah Ta’ala will give us Hayat-at-Tayiba (a happy blissful life) … A life of serenity, contentment, enjoyment … otherwise, we will experience no peace, tranquility and serenity.

 May Allah Ta’ala make us true Zaakireen …

Perfect your Salaah! ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

September 4, 2012



“A man came to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and said: O Messenger of Allah, teach me but make it concise.’ He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: ‘(1) When you stand to pray, pray like a man bidding farewell. (2) Do not say anything for which you will have to apologize. (3) And give up hope for what other people have.’” [Sunan Ibn Majah]


In this two part discussion, Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB, expounds on “Three Golden Advices” mentioned in the above Hadith, narrated by Hazrat Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari RA

The Three Golden Advices >

• Perfecting our Salaah

• Controlling our Tongue

• Turning ones gaze away from the possessions of people towards Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala

The Perfection of Salaah

Salaah is a means of asking and drawing from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala’s unlimited treasures! Although we perform our Salaah five times a day let us question ourselves as to how we perform our Salaah …

 The ‘manner’ in which we perform our Salaah is something we should question ourselves about! The moment we say ‘Allah-hu-Akbar’, let us be honest to ourselves, we do so many things by means of our mind … We have planned out our holidays … We are busy offloading containers and marking goods in our shop … Sometimes we have sold so many goods and items … At times we are busy planning our meetings for the day … If we have had an argument at home, we are busy planning what subject matter we are going to present and how we are going to behave … We have not discarded and bid farewell to, everything and everybody, to our Dukaan (shop) and Makaan (house), to our leisures and pleasures … to every other thought except Allah!

Instead of focussing on Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala we become totally distracted and Ghaafil (unmindful) of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala …

From the beginning (Allah-hu-Akbar) to the end (Salaam), we should be mindful of the fact that we are not standing before any human being … We are standing before our Creator, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala! The moment the Adhaan is given we should condition our minds and prepare for coming to Salaah. First and foremost with a proper and correct Whudu … Our thoughts should now be directed towards Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala … One should be completely intent and focussed to the fact that he is standing before Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and is going to be absorbed and consumed in this communication with Allah … It is as though, he is watching Allah and that Allah is watching him! 

How to gain concentration in Salaah?

1. Bid farewell to everything besides Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala when commencing Salaah

 2. Our hearts and minds (not only our limbs) should be consumed in focussing on Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala

 3. Reflect and ponder over the meanings of the Surah’s we are reading and then we will find enjoyment in Salaah


  Let us try and perfect our Salaah!
