Once, a woman wrote a letter to Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) wherein she mentioned that she began reciting aayat kareemah in abundance. She mentioned in the letter that after reciting the aayat in abundance for many days, she began to experience dizziness and perceived a lot of heat in her body. As a result, she felt unwell and did not know what to do.

In response, Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned that she should rather recite durood shareef in abundance. The reason is that aayat kareemah is a strong wazeefah, and when recited in abundance, it creates heat in the body. As far as durood shareef is concerned, it is a wazeefah that has a moderate (and light) effect on the body.

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: True success in Deen is for one to regard oneself as unworthy at all times. At no time should any person regard himself as successful on account of his actions. Even the good actions which one carries out, one should have the conviction within his heart that it is only through the grace of Allah Ta‘ala that he is able to carry out such actions, and it is only the grace of Allah Ta‘ala that will make one successful. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

لن يدخل أحدا منكم عمله الجنة قالوا ولا أنت يا رسول الله قال ولا أنا إلا أن يتغمدني الله منه بفضل ورحمة (صحيح مسلم الرقم: 2816)

“None of your actions will cause you to enter Jannah.” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) enquired, “Not even you, O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (i.e. your actions will not cause you to enter Jannah)?” Rasulullah replied, “Not even me, (my actions will not cause me to enter Jannah. I also cannot enter Jannah) unless Allah Ta‘ala envelops me with His grace and mercy.”

(Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 48)

Mukhawwal narrates the following incident:

One day, Buhaim came to me and asked, “Do you know of anyone, from your neighbours and friends planning to go for hajj, who would like to be my companion on the journey?” I replied in the affirmative, and then took him to a man of the locality who was pious and committed to Deen. I introduced them to one another, and they agreed to be companions on the journey of hajj. Thereafter, Buhaim departed, returning to his family.

Some time later, the man came to me and said, “I prefer that you find your friend another companion!” Hearing this, I exclaimed, “Why is it? By Allah, I do not know of anyone in Kufah who can compare to him in good character and tolerance. I have journeyed on a sea voyage with him and I did not see anything but good in him.” The man replied, “I was told that he continues to weep for lengthy periods, without cease. His continuous weeping will make our life difficult for the entire journey!” I replied, “He only weeps occasionally when he has a thought that softens the heart. Do you not also weep from time to time?” The man replied, “I do, but what I heard regarding this person and his weeping was quite extreme!” I replied, “Be his companion, and perhaps you will benefit from him.” The man (relented and) said, “I will make istikhaarah.”

When the day of their departure arrived, the camels were brought and made to kneel for them (to mount). Buhaim sat in the shade of a wall and placed his hand below his beard. He then began to weep until his tears flowed on his cheeks, and then on his beard, and then on his chest. By Allah, his tears flowed to such an extent that I even saw them flowing onto the ground!”

Valuable Moments of Acceptance

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

The trials and tribulations that one undergoes in life have been predestined and will occur at their appointed time. When one undergoes any difficulty, then for one to experience grief is natural. However, at the time of difficulty, when one turns to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa, engages in zikr, remains firm on Deen and does not leave out the tilaawat of the Quraan Majeed, then due to remaining punctual on righteous deeds and being committed to Deen despite the hardship, the rewards of one’s actions will be extremely weighty in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala (and this is the solution for one to gain Allah Ta‘ala’s mercy). In reality, these are valuable moments of acceptance. Hence, one should take advantage of these moments and try to achieve the love of Allah Ta‘ala and the rewards of the Hereafter. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 492-493)

A Nikaah of the Sunnah

Sayyiduna Salmaan Faarisi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) married a woman from Kindah and spent the first night of his marriage at his in-law’s home. On that night, he walked towards their home, accompanied by some of his friends. On reaching the home, he turned to them and said, “Return (to your homes) – may Allah Ta‘ala reward you!” Sayyiduna Salmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) did not allow them to enter the home (and meet his wife) as is done by foolish people.  

When Sayyiduna Salmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) looked at the home and observed that it was decorated with drapes, he remarked, “Does your home have a fever, or has the Ka‘bah moved to Kindah?” They replied, “Neither does our home have a fever, nor has the Ka‘bah moved to Kindah (rather, we have done this to decorate the home).” Sayyiduna Salmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) refused to enter the home, until every drape was removed – except for the drape covering the doorway (as this drape fulfilled the function of purdah).  

Thereafter, on entering the home, he saw abundant items and goods. He thus asked, “To whom do all these items and goods belong?” His wife’s family answered, “They belong to you and your wife.” Sayyiduna Salmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “This is not what my beloved friend (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) advised me. My beloved friend (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) advised me that my possessions of the world should be exactly like the provisions of a traveller (i.e. they should not be abundant and in excess).”
