The Benefit of Engaging in the Effort of Da’wat and Tableegh


Tuesday, 08 June 2021 06:29

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

The effort of da’wat and tableegh, which entails striving for deen by leaving one’s home and coming out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala, is extremely important.

One of the special benefits of coming out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala is that a person leaves his homely environment and surrounding, and enters an environment of piety and righteousness. This environment of piety and righteousness has a motivating effect on him. It creates the deeni motivation within him to fulfill his deeni obligations.

Furthermore, on account of traveling to different places for the sake of deen, one is faced with various challenges for the sake of deen, and at times, he has to tolerate people. However, due to him tolerating all these difficulties solely for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala, he receives the special mercy of Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala mentions in the Qur’aan Majeed:

Remedy to become Punctual upon Salaah


Sunday, 06 June 2021 06:56

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

Once, a person came to me requesting a ta’weez which will make him punctual in performing his five daily salaah. I said to him, “My friend! The verses of the Quraan Majeed (used in a ta’weez) do contain some effect. However, I do not have knowledge of such a ta’weez whereby I will be able to cause a policeman to be put into the ta‘weez, and at each salaah time he will emerge, and with his stick, compel you to perform your salaah.

“Hence, instead of giving you a ta’weez, I can rather show you a remedy and exercise through which you will become punctual upon your salaah in just four days. However, this remedy will not prove beneficial for you by you merely enquiring about it and not following it. It will only prove beneficial for you if you diligently practice upon it.

Exciting Time

Often people cannot contain their excitement as some eagerly anticipated event draws closer. Imagine a most dear child or beloved spouse returning home after a year abroad! As the day of arrival draws closer, the happiness and excitement would be sensed all around. Let alone any significant occasion such as a nikaah, graduation, etc., people often cannot even contain their excitement as a planned holiday or fishing trip draws closer! More than a thousand times greater excitement is experienced by the true lovers of Allah Ta‘ala as they eagerly anticipate the arrival of the most noble guest – the most blessed month of Ramadhaan.


Excitedly awaiting Ramadhaan is a sign of imaan. Upon sighting the moon of Rajab – two months prior to Ramadhaan – Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would express his zeal for Ramadhaan by making du‘aa, “O Allah, enable us to reach (be alive in) Ramadhaan.” Subhanallah! This du‘aa is infused with excitement and eager anticipation for the blessed month.

Ramadhaan 1441 (2020) was indeed very unusual. It was a Ramadhaan in lockdown – something never experienced before in South Africa and many other parts of the world.

Due to lockdown regulations most people were generally confined to their homes. Businesses could not be opened nor could workers go to their jobs. Many were in dire circumstances since they could not earn their livelihoods.

A much greater tragedy was that most people had no access to the masjid. Some made Jumu‘ah Salaah in small groups here and there while most tragically, thousands missed their Jumu‘ah Slaah altogether.

Innaa lillahi wa innaa ilaihi raaji‘oon!

Priceless Ramadhaan


Tuesday, 06 April 2021 08:29

Two men, from a certain tribe came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and accepted Islam. After some time, one of them went out in jihaad and was blessed with martyrdom, while the other lived on and passed away a normal death one year later. Sayyiduna Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thereafter saw a dream in which he was shown that the Sahaabi who had passed away a natural death had surpassed the one who had been martyred!

Third Wave

Q: The second wave of the Corona virus is still around and we are told that a third wave is coming. This is very stressful and is making me feel very down. When will these waves stop?

A: If there is no ocean or huge mass of water, there will be no waves. Likewise, if the ocean of sins is evaporated through sincere repentance and spiritual reformation, the waves of pandemics and calamities will stop.

The Secret to Success

During the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), there were two major kingdoms in the nearby lands; Rome and Persia.

On the night of the birth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), a tremor had struck the palace of the Persian ruler, causing fourteen towers of his palace to collapse. This was an indication that the Persian kingdom would have fourteen more rulers, after which it would collapse and be no more. (Taareekh Tabari vol. 2, pg. 258 - 260)

During the period of peace between the Muslims in Madeenah Munawwarah and the Quraish (after the treaty of Hudaibiyah), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) sent epistles (letters) to the rulers of Rome and Persia, inviting them to Islam. As far as Caesar (the Roman emperor) is concerned, then on receiving the epistle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he honoured it and showed it respect, though he did not accept Islam.

As for Chosroes (the Persian ruler), he displayed scorn and utter disrespect and disregard for the epistle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He thus destroyed it by tearing it into pieces. When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was informed of this, he made du‘aa for Allah Ta‘ala to tear his kingdom apart, just as he had torn the blessed epistle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). (Saheeh Bukhaari #4424)
