Bismihi Ta'ala

Respected Mufti Saheb 

As Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh


[The letter was not published. The writer apparently complained of a great lack of enthusiasm with regard to I'badat and other aspects of Deen. He also apparently mentioned that his ma'moolat (daily zikr and other practices) were not being completed.]

Advice of Hadrat Luqman (a.s)


Friday, 26 October 2007 00:29

Hazrath Luqman (A.S.) was  granted great wisdom by Allah Ta'ala. He once said to his son:

"My dear son, avoid incurring debts, for a debt is a humiliation by day (when the creditors make demands) and grief by night (when you cannot sleep worrying about how you will pay it).


My dear son, entertain hopes of mercy from Allah Ta'ala, but let not your hopes make you bold in committing sins; be fearful of Allah Ta'ala but let not your fear make you despair of His mercy.


My dear son, if somebody complains to you that so-and-so has taken out both his eyes and you can actually see his eyes missing, do not form any judgement about the person until you have heard the other side of the story. It is possible that the one complaining may have hit the other person first and taken out his eyes earlier" (Fazaa'il -e-Sadaqaat).

Q&A: Immodest Garments


Friday, 26 October 2007 00:28

Question:  I have read an article in the Al-Haadi concerning the evil of wearing immodest clothing. I have many garments which I agree can be classified as immodest. Comparatively my dressing is considered modest though I am sure if Hazrath Fatima (R.A.) were alive, she would have found them disgusting. What should I do with these clothes? Can I give them away?

Reality of Love


Friday, 26 October 2007 00:25

Parables are indeed excellent. They enable one to reflect on issues in a manner that bring the reality home very easily and clearly. The Qur'an-al-Kareem and Ahadith are also replete with examples and parables.

         Hence, let us also consider the following parable: A son most eloquently expresses his love and affection for his learned and wise father. "My most beloved father," he says. "There is nobody dearer to me on the face of this earth than you. I love you more than myself. I will do anything for you. I will even give my life for you. To make you happy is my greatest joy. When I see you in pain, it is as though I have been struck by a thousand arrows!!!"
