‘Ali bin Husain (rahimahullah), also known by the title Zainul ‘Aabideen, was the grandson of Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and the son of Sayyiduna Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

On one occasion, Zainul ‘Aabideen (rahimahullah) was performing wudhu while his slave girl was assisting him by pouring the water onto his limbs from a pitcher. As she was pouring the water, it so happened that the pitcher fell from her hand, striking Zainul ‘Aaibdeen (rahimahullah) on his head and injuring him. On suffering the injury, Zainul ‘Aabideen (rahimahullah) looked up at the slave girl (in anger).

The slave girl addressed him saying, “Allah Ta‘ala mentions (while describing the people of taqwa):

وَالْكَاظِمِينَ الْغَيْظَ

And those who suppress their anger

As soon as he heard this, Zainul ‘Aabideen (rahimahullah) responded, “I have suppressed my anger.”

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

If any person sees some good quality in himself and finds that quality lacking in another person, due to which he begins to regard himself to be better than that person, then he should immediately think to himself, “It is possible that this person does not have this good quality in him which I have, but he has some other praiseworthy quality in him which is lacking in me, due to which he is better than me in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala.”

Hazrat Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) then mentioned, “If a person trains himself to think in this way, it will assist him to remove self-admiration and pride from his heart and it will save him from regarding himself to be better than others.” (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/55)

Down and Moody

Sometimes we do have those unpleasant days, where we feel down and low, moody and irritable. Often on such occasions we tend to make the biggest mistake by blurting out our thoughts and feelings. The devil and our base desires deceive us to think that we are getting everything off our chests and we will thereafter feel much lighter and better. However our explosive reaction only adds to our pain and and makes us later regret.

The wiser and more intelligent thing to do is to turn our gaze away from all the negatives around us and focus on the positives. This will help to bring about some balance within us. Thereafter we should smile and others will smile with us. We should speak good and do good to others, and we ourselves will automatically feel good again. Before we know it, we will once more be feeling better and in high spirits. Then, in a rational and positive manner, address the issues that are necessary to attend to. Otherwise, adopt patience and take the innumerable rewards from Allah Ta‘ala.

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

This is a proven fact and I have firm confidence and belief in it. It has also been proven through the experience of the pious servants of Allah Ta‘ala. This fact is that whenever any locality is undergoing difficulties and calamities, and they resort to reciting durood shareef in abundance and making excessive zikr (remembrance of Allah Ta‘ala, performing salaah, reforming their actions), the calamities and difficulties are immediately alleviated and removed. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 400)

Abu Qilaabah (rahimahullah) was an illustrious Taabi‘ee from Basrah who passed away in the year 104 A.H.

Imaam Awzaa‘ee (rahimahullah) narrates the following incident from ‘Abdullah bin Muhammad (rahimahullah), explaining the manner in which Abu Qilaabah (rahimahullah) passed away. ‘Abdullah bin Muhammad (rahimahullah) says:

I once went to the coast to engage in ‘ribaat’ (guarding the borders of the Islamic lands). At that time, I was posted to the border which was near the city of Arish (a city in Egypt). As I arrived at the coast, I came to an open plain in which a tent was pitched. In the tent, I found a man who had lost the use of both his hands and feet. Furthermore, he was hard of hearing and could barely see, and he did not have any servant to attend to him. However, his tongue was moving and saying:
