SUMMARY OF LETTER:

Bismihi Ta’ala

Respected Mufti Saheb

As Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh

My excessive sins have overwhelmed me and I have lost control. I greatly regret this and sometimes wish that the earth will split and swallow me up. Please comment.


 

SUMMARY OF REPLY:

Bismihi Ta’ala

Respected Brother

As Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh

Whatever regret and remorse you have expressed over your conditions, may the same remorse be deep down in your heart. Indeed, if a person is truly concerned about his islaah (reformation), his concern in itself is more effective in bringing about his reformation than any wazaaif (recitations of various zikr’s, etc. However, the concern that is merely expressed with the tongue but does not exist in the heart does not have this effect … May Allah Ta’ala assist you.

Hazrath Anas bin Malik (R.A.) narrates that he heard the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saying: “A person who in all sincerity is constant in his salaah with jama’ah for forty days, without missing the first takbeer, receives two awards: one for deliverance from Hell and the other for freedom from nifaaq.”

The Sahaaba

Allah Ta’ala has praised the Sahaaba (R.A.) in various verses of the Qur’an. They have been blessed with the glad tidings of having received the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala while they walked on the surface of this earth. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) also showered great praise on the Sahaaba (R.A.) and warned against reviling them. Hence it is reported in a Hadith that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “When you see those who revile my Sahaaba     (R.A.), say to them: “May the curse of Allah be upon your evil action” (Mishkaat).

Question:

Presently a “reality show” on T.V. has gripped the nation. A group of men and women have been confined to a house where they will live together for many weeks. T.V. viewers get to see the goings-on between them, including any illicit contact. Is it permissible to watch such programmes?

Hazrath Muaz bin Jabal (R.A) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The purest of income is the earnings of traders who:

1. When they speak, they do not lie
2. When something is placed in trust with them, they do not misappropriate the trust
3. When they promise, they do not renege on their promise
4. When they purchase something, they do not find fault with the merchandise (i.e. they do not try to reduce the price by exaggerating its defects)
5. When they sell, they do not praise the article (i.e. they do not exaggerate its good qualities in order to fetch a better price)
6. When they are indebted, they do not delay payment
7. When they are owed money, they are not harsh in asking for payment.

   

R36 000.00 an Hour

Can you imagine earning R36 000.00 an hour? If you were given such a job, how many hours a day would you work? Most people would opt for at least a few hours daily, if not the entire day. Why would anyone so eagerly grab such a job? Simply because we all understand the reality of rands and cents. The one who gets the job will have big dreams of what he would do with the money he will earn. A palatial home, top-of-the-range luxury vehicle, all the appliances and furniture he dreamt of and a thousand other items will flood his mind. Yet, even if he acquires all these items, it is not necessary that he will gain happiness and peace. True happiness and peace is only in Jannah. But Jannah also has to be earned by means of the currency of the Hereafter.

Embrace Islam Totally

It is a well known fact that daily many people from all walks of life embrace Islam. Many come into Deen after having studied Islam and having understood the truth. However numerous people walk away from their previous faith and proclaim the Shahadah after having being attracted by the exemplary business dealings or social conduct of some Muslims. May Allah Ta’ala increase the likes of such people who are true ambassadors of Deen.
