Allah Ta‘ala Looks for an Excuse to Forgive

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

Once an 'Aalim cried before me out of fear that he did not know in which condition he will pass away. Thereafter Moulana Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) said, I do not generally take oaths in regard to any affair in the future. However I take an oath with firm conviction that Allah Ta'ala, out of His infinite grace and mercy towards His servants, looks for excuses to forgive a person. Allah Ta'ala does not look for excuses to punish one. Why should Allah Ta'ala want to punish one whereas He Himself mentions in the Quraan:

مَّا يَفْعَلُ اللَّـهُ بِعَذَابِكُمْ إِن شَكَرْتُمْ وَآمَنتُمْ (النساء: ١٤٧)

What will Allah gain through punishing you, if you express shukr (gratitude) and believe?

Elaborate Wedding Functions

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

I always had a natural aversion for elaborate wedding functions. My friends and close associates are witness to the fact that at times I receive 200 to 250 guests at my home, and at times even more than that. Large degs (pots) of food are prepared for my guests. However whenever a wedding function was held at my home, then I cannot recall even one deg of food being prepared for the guests on account of the simplicity of the nikaah. (i.e. which was in conformity to the mubaarak sunnah of Rasulullah [sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam]). (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/99)

The Power of Islam

The verses of the Quraan and the words of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) are haq (the truth), whereas the amusements and the entertainment of the world are baatil (false). The power of haq is such that with the passage of time it has remained in its pure and pristine form. Those very verses of the Quraan and those very words of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) which moved the hearts and beautified the lives of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), continue to move and beautify us today. On the other hand, baatil (falsehood) is so weak that it had to keep on changing, improving and upgrading itself in order to be appealing to people; that too only for the weak hearted. The survival of the entertainment industry depends solely on change, whereas our Islam is independent and free of any such deficiency. Our dominant Islam has stood the test of time and place, whereas entertainment changes with time and varies with place. Let us hold onto the power of our Islam.

 

Transformation in One Week

A husband once complained that his wife does not listen to him, she leaves the home in disarray and passes her life following her desires. He was advised to start ta’leem (kitaab reading) in the home. On the first day when he opened the book to read, she grabbed her children, went in the next room, locked it and switched on the television loudly.  On the second day she did the very same thing. On the third day she needed to use the toilet. As she walked past her husband, the words being read caught her attention. She stopped, her heart was captured, so she returned to the room and switched off the television. On the fourth day the entire family sat together for ta’leem. On the fifth day she removed the TV from the home, since it was destroying her life and her children’s lives. By the sixth day she decided not to leave the home like before. Within a week the entire home changed with the blessing of ta’leem at home.

Inspirational Advice

“Khaleelullah”

It was the habit of Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) to always invite someone over when partaking of meals. On one occasion he set out looking for someone to join him for meals. When he could not find anyone, he returned to his house. As he entered, he saw someone standing in his home. He exclaimed: “O servant of Allah, with whose permission have you entered my house?” The stranger replied: “The real owner of this house has granted me permission.” Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) then asked him: “Who are you?” He replied: “I am the angel of death. Allah Ta‘ala has sent me to give glad tidings to a special servant of His, who He has selected to be His Khaleel (close and bosom friend).” Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) said: “Please, do let me know who this saint is. I swear by Allah, no matter which ever part of the world he resides in, I would definitely go there and meet him. Then, I would spend my entire life at his feet (serving him).” The angel of death responded: “You are that fortunate person.” Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) asked: “Is it really me?” The angel of death replied in the affirmative. Thereafter Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) inquired from him the reason for Allah Ta‘ala selecting him as His Khaleel? The angel of death replied: “Because you always keep giving others, but never ask anything from anyone.” (Tafseer Ibni Katheer, vol. 1, pg. 560) 

Lesson: When one gives for the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala, one always receives something in return – in this world and the Hereafter. In this world, besides blessings in ones sustenance, it brings great spiritual benefits which are beyond all the material benefits of this world.
