Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned that the true respect of deen is that one accepts the command of Allah Ta'ala in every situation without subjecting his obedience to his own logical reasoning and understanding. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 1/423)

Manner of Nikaahs in the Glorious Era

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

‘Ulama have written that there are two such ‘ibaadat which commenced with Hadhrat Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) and will continue till Qiyaamah. In fact, it will remain in Jannah as well. The first is imaan and the second is nikaah. However, when we brought in unnecessary and futile practices into our weddings then we have transformed this blessed sunnah into a calamity. The love that the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) had for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is evident and well-known to all. Hadhrat Abdur Rahmaan bin ‘Auf (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a well-known Sahaabi. He was amongst the ‘asharah mubasharah’ and one of the most dedicated Sahaabah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Despite this honour to his name, let alone inviting Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he did not even inform Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) of his nikaah (due to nikaah being regarded as a simple affair).

How sad is it that we have complicated this blessed sunnah with our customs and unfounded practices. In some places the wedding procession leaves at the time of salaah whereby the bridegroom, bride and the entire procession fail to perform their salaah with jamaat or, even worse, miss out their salaah completely. May Allah Ta'ala reform our ways and bless us with true guidance. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/93)

Quraan Shareef Recitation Program

Saturday, 22 November 2014 15:02

It is reported that Sayyiduna 'Uthmaan (radhiyallahu 'anhu) used to recite the entire Quraan from memory in two rakaats of salaah. It was a very common practice of the Aslaaf (pious predecessors) to recite Quraan Shareef excessively. Unfortunately this practice is diminishing greatly.

By the grace of Almighty Allah, it is a recognised fact that our country has in the past few decades produced a phenomenal number of huffaaz. However, it is a growing concern amongst both the parent’s of these huffaaz, as well as the individuals themselves, as to how the many years of effort and sacrifice put in to memorise the Quraan Shareef can be preserved and also improved upon. This is also one of the objectives for organising programs of this nature. Otherwise, the many years of effort and sacrifice spent in the acquisition of this noble position will be soon washed away.

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

More Generous than a Dog

Once, Ebrahim bin Adham (rahimahullah) and Shaqeeq Balkhi (rahimahullah) met in the Haram of Makkah Mukarramah during the occasion of Haj. During the course of the discussion, Ebrahim (rahimahullah) posed a question to Shaqeeq (rahimahullah), “What do you regard as the foundation of your path of piety?”

Shaqeeq (rahimahullah) replied: “If we have food to eat we are grateful, and if we do not have we are patient.” Ebrahim bin Adham (rahimahullah) responded, “(This is no achievement.) The dogs of Balkh do the same, (if they find something to eat they will eat and if they do not find anything to eat then they are patient until something comes along).” Shaqeeq thereafter asked him, “Then what do you regard as the foundation of your path of piety?” He replied, “If we find anything to eat then we feed others first before filling our own belly, and if we don’t have anything to eat then we are grateful to Allah Ta‘ala and praise Him.” After hearing this reply, Shaqeeq (rahimahullah) stood up and sat with utmost respect in front of Ebrahim bin Adham (rahimahullah) saying, “You are our teacher”. (Hilyatul Awliyaa vol. 8, pg. 38)

Lesson: These are real people with real values. They put others first before themselves, and despite whatever condition they experience, they are forever grateful to Allah Ta‘ala. Such people possess real values. May Allah Ta‘ala grant us all these great qualities.
