Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. Death is indiscriminate. It takes anyone at anytime. There is a sequence for coming into this world, i.e. first the grandfather, then the father and then the son. However with regards to leaving, there is no system. The grandson may pass away while the grandfather is still living.

2. We all have to return to Allah Ta‘ala. However, what we need to see is how can we make the return journey enjoyable and pleasant? The answer is simple: Make your life pleasant and beloved to Him, and He will make your end pleasant and enjoyable to you.

3. Some people pass away in such a blessed manner, as if they had requested the angel of death to take their soul in that way. These things happen even up to this day but generally to those whose hearts are very clean. We just need to make slight adjustments to our eyes, ears, tongue and heart.

4. When a person’s soul is totally compliant to the commands of Allah Ta‘ala and happy with Him, at the time of death he is told: “O compliant soul! Return to your Rabb in a condition that you are pleased with Him and He is pleased with you. Enter among my pious servants and enter my Jannat.”

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. The oyster waits with its mouth open. When a raindrop gets into it, after some time it becomes a pearl. In the similar manner we need to constantly focus towards Allah Ta‘ala. Our attention, concern and concentration needs to be towards Him in all conditions. There must be a constant cry. During our private time or when we are driving alone, we should be crying from our hearts and engaging in zikr. We never know which zikr will be accepted and when that lucky moment may come and His grace may engulf us.

2. We should not look at our limitations, rather we should focus at the shore-less ocean of Allah Ta‘ala’s power. Let your heart be with him no matter what your condition may be. Even if you are in sin, focus towards him.

3. Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) had a frame in his room in which “Ana ‘abdullah (I am the slave of Allah Ta‘ala)” was inscribed. This serves as a constant reminder that Allah Ta‘ala has the right to command and I have the duty to obey. This duty should be with beauty as well. That is we should carry out our duties happily and not grudgingly.

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. The element which really expedites one’s progress in this path is the element of love for Allah Ta‘ala. It needs to be developed and enhanced. This could be done by us pondering over the favours of Allah Ta‘ala.

2. When we partake of our meals, we should ponder over the numerous bounties of Allah Ta‘ala that are contained within one meal. So many systems work together in order for one morsel to come to us. At times, the ingredients for one morsel may have come from 6 different countries. Then the food is served to us with so much of respect and love. Together with the different varieties of food that we enjoy in one meal, more so in the Month of Ramadhaan. When we ponder over all these favours and our not being deserving of them, the love of Allah Ta‘ala will increase in our hearts.

3. If we join the company of the lovers of Allah Ta‘ala, we will also be blessed and favoured. The third class of a train reaches wherever the first class reaches. A dog is impure and najis. However the dog that accompanied the Ashaab-e-Kahf (people of the cave), who were a group of lovers of Allah Ta‘ala, became so valuable that it has been mentioned in the Quraan Majeed which will recited even in Jannat.

4. Allah Ta‘ala takes an oath on the horse and it’s loyalty in Surah Wal-‘aadiyaat. The master merely feeds it and takes a little care of it, yet it is prepared to risk its life and do anything for him. Now when Allah Ta‘ala has created us and does everything for us, how much more loyal aren’t we supposed to be to him?

   

Inspirational Advice

Jannah in this World

Once Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was seated with the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) when he said: “A man from the people of Jannah will appear before you now.” Just then a man from the Ansaar came with his beard dripping of his left-over wudhu water. The same happened for three days consecutively.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) left, ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) followed this Ansaari man and said to him: “I had an argument with my father and vowed not to go home for three days. Will you allow me to spend these three days at your place?” The man agreed to this. ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says that he spent those three nights with him (trying to ascertain what act of worship earned him this glad tiding) but he did not find him carrying out any extra acts of worship apart from the fact that he only heard him speaking good.

After the three nights passed, ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to him: “O servant of Allah! I did not have any problem with my father. Rather the only reason for me spending these nights with you was to discover your special act of worship which has earned you the glad tiding I heard from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). However, I haven’t seen you do any extra actions. Now please tell me what has taken you to such a position?” The man replied: “I don’t do anything other than what you have seen.” When ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) left, he called him back and said: “The only thing extra is that I do not harbour any ill-feelings in my heart for any believer and I am not jealous of anyone for the good that Allah Ta‘ala blesses him with.” ‘Abdullah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “This is the reason for you reaching this position and this is the thing that we are unable to do.” (Musnad Ahmad #12697)

Lesson: Most of our miseries today are linked to the ill-feelings we harbour for others. “Why does he have that kind of a car or house and I don’t have the same? Why are his children so bright but my children are not?” We need to remember that “when we harbour ill-feelings, happiness docks elsewhere”. This is such a grave sin that even on auspicious occasions, a person who harbours ill-feelings is not forgiven by Allah Ta‘ala. On the other hand, the one who imitates the people of Jannah in keeping his heart clean will be from the people of Jannah.  

 

Lessons from the Lives of the Pious

Eagerness for Ramadhaan and Receiving it

Moulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) writes:

The month of Ramadhaan marks the commencement of the revelation of the Quraan. It is the month of mercy, blessings and effulgence. Ramadhaan is indeed the prime period for ‘ibaadat and righteous actions and the all-embracing event of spirituality.

Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) mentioned: “During the month of Ramadhaan, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would always be ahead in good deeds, much faster than a strong blowing wind.”

Hadhrat ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) said: “When the last ten days of Ramadhaan would commence, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would remain the entire night awake and he would awaken his household as well. He would exert himself in carrying out ‘ibaadat.”

The month of Ramadhaan is the time for the fulfilment of the aspirations and hopes of the true lovers of Allah Ta‘ala, for which they would count the number of days to the approach of this month. We are not speaking about the state of the former pious predecessors. I have heard regarding some of the pious predecessors of the recent past that they would anticipate the approach of the next Ramadhaan from the moment the crescent of ‘Eid was sighted.
