The tenth of Muharram is a very virtuous day. It is the Day of Aashura. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) fasted on this day and encouraged the Ummah to do so. It is also encouraged to be generous on one’s family on the day of Aashura. This is a means of great barakah.

Faqihul Ummah: Reality of Taubah


Friday, 28 June 2013 07:30

Summary of Letter: 

Bismihi Ta’ala

Respected Mufti Saheb

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

My heart has become very hard. It just would not melt with the remembrance or the fear of Allah Ta’ala. Please advise as to how I should soften my heart.

Furthermore, with the grace of Allah Ta’ala and through the barkat (blessing) of being linked to yourself, I have been blessed with the tawfeeq (ability) of quickly repenting from my sins. The problem is that to remain steadfast on taubah (and not repeat the sin) is among the most difficult things for me. Please help me to overcome these maladies.


Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

It is necessary to always keep in mind the reality of taubah. The reality of taubah is that one should sincerely regret having committed the sin, as well as firmly resolve to refrain from the sin. The resolve should be such that even if you are thrown into the fire, you will not commit that sin again. One should also constantly make dua to Allah Ta’ala to grant one istiqamat (steadfastness) on one’s taubah. If any rights (of people) have not been discharged, make an effort to fulfil the same. In this way one will Insha-Allah be blessed with istiqamat.

Keeping contact with the poor, being compassionate to them and sharing their pain and grief will Insha-Allah help to soften the heart. (Maktoobaat vol. 5, pg. 62)

Was Salaam (Maktoobaat)

“And assist one another in acts of virtue and Taqwa and do not assist one another  in sin and rebellion.” (s5 : v2)

Be good… and help others to be good – this is the salient feature of a true believer and a person of Taqwa. His words and actions guide towards righteousness. Inviting others towards Taqwa and assisting them to adopt it also strengthens his own Taqwa.
