The Power of Du‘aa

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

Many Muslims neglect making du‘aa, and as for those who make du‘aa, then many of them have not understood the power of du‘aa. The importance and power of du‘aa need to be explained to the Muslims in order that they engage in du‘aa with the correct mindset.

At the time of making du‘aa, one should bear in mind that one is presenting one’s needs in the court of the King of all kings. While presenting one’s needs before Allah Ta‘ala, one should focus one’s heart towards the majesty of Allah Ta‘ala and His greatness. Then, with utmost humility and helplessness, one should converse with Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa with the heart being filled with the conviction that Allah Ta‘ala will certainly accept his du‘aa. One should also realize that the being from whom one is begging is the King of all kings, who is most generous, kind and loving towards His servants. When He is most generous, kind and loving towards His servants, then He will most surely answer the call of His servants. Undoubtedly, the keys to the treasures of the heavens and earth only lie in His hand and He has complete and supreme power over everything. It is with this mindset that one should make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala and present his need.

Amazing Wealth

Do you wish to have such wealth which can never be stolen by thugs and thieves, guarantees peace, secures happiness, protects from misery and mental turmoil… and even saves one from many serious sins? Yes indeed, every sane person wants such wealth, and to acquire it is very simple — BE CONTENT. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has clearly declared, “Verily true wealth is the wealth of the heart (contentment).” (Saheeh Bukhaari #6446)

The greatness, excellence, brilliance and magnitude of the noble attribute of contentment can be clearly understood from the practice of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma). On the advice of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), during the great ‘ibaadat of tawaaf of the Ka’bah Shareef, he would make the following du‘aa between the Rukn-e-Yamaani and Hajr Aswad: “O Allah! Bless me with contentment in that which you have given me!”. (Mustadrak Haakim #1674) Subhaanallah! The greatest Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) advising that in the greatest of places one should keep begging Allah Ta‘ala for such an immensely great wealth… the lesson is for his Ummah to acquire this true wealth and enjoy its benefit.

Special Gift

Tuesday, 06 August 2019 10:07

Gifting is not only an expression of love – it is a means of creating and enhancing love. When a person gives a gift, his simple gesture conveys the sentiments of appreciating and honouring the one who is receiving the gift. Hence, when one receives a gift, the love for the one giving the gift is automatically enhanced as one values the sentiment and effort behind the gift.

Just as people give gifts to one another during their lifetime, it is possible to give a ‘gift’ to a person after his demise as well – through conveying the reward of a good deed to the person.

Since the occasion of qurbaani has once again arrived, it is the ideal opportunity, for those who have the means, to carry out nafl qurbaani and convey the reward to their deceased parents, spouse, siblings, asaatizah, etc.

It has been narrated from Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that he would slaughter two rams (on the occasion of qurbaani); one for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the other for himself. When he was asked the reason for doing this, he replied, “He (i.e. Nabi [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam]) instructed me to do this, so I will never leave it.” (Sunan Tirmizi #1495)

Q&A: Instagram Influencer

Q: I am a Muslimah who has a large circle of friends. Since I am a quite popular and sociable person, I have been considering joining Instagram. Through daily posts about the things that I do or by sharing my daily experiences with people, I will get many followers and will become an ‘Influencer’ . This has the potential to become a profitable business venture through adverts which I will post to my followers. Your Islamic advice and guidance on this proposal is most appreciated (question summarized).

A: You have asked for Islamic guidance and advice on the matter. We commend you upon this. A Muslim’s primary and greatest concern is that Allah Ta‘ala must be pleased with him. In order to ensure that one is on the path of earning Allah Ta‘ala’s pleasure, and not incurring His displeasure, one should always first seek Islamic guidance from authentic and experienced ‘Ulama who will guide one in light of the Quraan and sunnah. Doing “one’s own thing” without taking Islamic guidance could lead to major problems – in this world and especially on the Day of Judgement.

Ten Special Days

It is related from Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “No days are as weighty with Allah Ta‘ala and so liked by Him  for good deeds than the first ten days of Zul Hijjah. Therefore in these days excessively read tasbeeh (subahanallah), tahleel (la ilaaha illlallah), tahmeed (alhamdulillah) and takbeer (Allahu akbar). (Majma‘uz Zawaaid #5990)

Inspirational Advice

Concerned for the Outcome of His Mother

Abu Katheer, Yazeed bin ‘Abdir Rahmaan (rahimahullah) mentions:

On one occasion, Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to me, “Allah Ta‘ala has not created any believer who will hear of me or see me except that he will have love for me.” I asked him, “How do you know this, O Abu Hurairah?” In reply, Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) related the following incident:

My mother was a disbeliever, and I would continue to invite her towards Islam. However, despite my efforts, she would not accept my invitation and refused to bring imaan.

One day, when I invited my mother to accept Islam, she began to speak against Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), uttering such words that I detested hearing. I thus presented myself before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with tears flowing from my eyes.
