Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. Enjoining good and forbidding evil is compulsory. However there are different approaches that need to be used for this. This will be learnt by sitting in the company of the Mashaayikh and being in constant contact with them. They will show us application. Otherwise, we may try to rectify one thing, but open the door to ten other wrongs.

2. Sometimes we become over concerned about correcting others and neglect our own family and household, whereas in numerous verses the Quraan Majeed commands us to instruct our family members. When the home environment is right then a person remains motivated and speaks from a point of strength. Otherwise he may become slack or people may say that if what he is inviting to is right, why aren’t his family members practising on it?

3. Spending a little while in the company of one’s shaikh is not sufficient. We think that by spending one i’tikaaf we will complete all the stages of sulook. However this is only like a scanning machine, where a person’s weaknesses and faults are pointed out. Thereafter he will have to keep constant contact to correct and rectify them.

4. The hadeeth explains that one of the major problems before Qiyaamah is that people will become self-opinionated. When a person feels that I am not competent enough then he will keep asking his elders. But when he feels that I can read in between the lines and I can understand it by myself, he will not ask. This amounts to ‘ujb (self-admiration), which is a major problem and obstacle on the path of progress. It is so serious that in the Battle of Hunain the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) had to suffer because of it.

Night majlis – Saturday 22nd Ramadhaan / 19th July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. The Quraan and hadeeth say that by giving sadaqah, we will get an increase in our wealth. However if a person has one million and he gives hundred thousand in sadaqah then he will not find it increasing. Instead, it will decrease to nine hundred thousand. But this is what our minds and eyes will tell us, that it has decreased and there is no increase. However, the reality is that our eyes may see wrong and our minds may reason incorrectly, but the words of Allah Ta‘ala and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) can never be wrong. So what does this increase mean? (1) The sadaqah will be a means of our wealth being protected from being destroyed, through theft ect. (2) The sadaqah will safe guard the wealth from being wasted and spent incorrectly. In essence, much good will be gained through the wealth.

2. We have to understand that this wealth is not just to amass and hoard. It has to be spent on the creation of Allah Ta‘ala. Mufti Shafee’ Saahib (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to keep aside one-tenth of his savings and whenever the need arose he would give sadaqah from that amount.

1. If we develop the true love of Allah Ta‘ala then deen will become extremely easy to practice and we will be able to overcome all hurdles.

2. In the world, the system of Allah Ta‘ala is that there is a source for everything and one will have to respect that system. If you wish to acquire secular education then you will enrol in a school and go to university. A person wishes to become a doctor, he will go to medical college. Likewise, for acquiring piety you will have to sit in the company of the pious.

3. Allah Ta‘ala’s mercy is unrestricted and limitless. It is like an ocean without shores. His mercy is for everyone.

4. People of the past would give up their comforts and riches to attain piety. However, for weak people like us who cannot make such a drastic change, then there is still a chance for us as well. The hadeeth speaks of those with whom Allah Ta‘ala is pleased. They are the ones who lie on their soft cushions and beds but they still remember Allah Ta‘ala.

5. When a person expresses remorse and regret over his wrongs, Allah Ta‘ala becomes extremely pleased with such a person.

   

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.
