Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) was once asked the following question, “Why do the Muslims lack power and dominance in the world?” In response, Hazrat Moulana (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) gave the following answer:

“In today’s times, when the condition of the Muslims is such that they do not safeguard and uphold the laws, commands and prohibitions of Allah Ta‘ala in their own lives and in their homes (despite having full ability to do so and not being bound by any restrictions), then how can one imagine that Allah Ta’ala will grant them worldly administration and dominance?

The very purpose for Allah Ta‘ala granting worldly administration to the Muslims is in order for them to please Him and obey Him through upholding His laws and injunctions in the world. Hence, when the Muslims are not currently upholding Deen in their personal lives, despite having the full ability to do so, then what hope can there be that they will uphold the laws of Deen in the entire world if tomorrow they are granted worldly administration and dominance?”

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

There is no need for a person to impose difficulty on himself in regard to fulfilling his daily zikr. Hence, if due to sickness, one finds it difficult to complete his daily zikr, then there is no harm.

As far as one’s recitation of the Quraan Majeed is concerned, then greater importance should be shown to completing one’s recitation. If a person is not so sick, then he should make an effort to complete his recitation, even though he recites softly.

Regarding one’s zikr and other ma’moolaat, then one should try not to leave it out entirely. Rather, at the time of difficulty or illness, one should at least complete some portion of the zikr and ma’moolaat.

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

A person cannot trust his nafs at any time nor feel safe from its harm. Even though one may reach great heights in piety and perform miracles, or one may become a learned ‘aalim or great wali, but at no point can he feel safe and secure of the evils of his nafs (as he does not know at which point the nafs will lure him towards evil and sin).

Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) is that esteemed Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala who was honoured with the title “Khaleelullah” – the  special friend of Allah Ta‘ala.

‘Ubaid bin ‘Umair (rahimahullah) reports the following incident:

It was the blessed habit of Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) that he would always try to bring people home as his guests to share his meals with him. On one occasion, Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) went out, looking for someone to bring home as his guest. However, he was unable to find anyone to share his meal with him, and thus returned home.

On arriving at his home, he found that a man had entered, in his absence, and was standing inside. Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) asked him, “O servant of Allah! Why have you entered my home without permission?” The man replied, “I was granted permission to enter by the One who is the true owner of your home (i.e. I was given permission by Allah Ta‘ala).”

Why do we Face Calamities?

A person once wrote a letter to Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) and mentioned the following, “I have not usurped the right of any person, nor have I oppressed or wronged any person. Hence, I cannot understand why I am suffering one calamity and misfortune after another.”

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) wrote the following reply:

In this regard, one must bear two things in mind. Firstly, people are sometimes unaware of the wrongs and sins that they have committed. Hence, when a person makes claims such as, “I have never oppressed any person, or usurped the wealth of any person,” then may Allah Ta‘ala make it such that his statement is true. Nevertheless, at no time should a person ever regard himself as free of faults and sins. Rather, at all times, one should acknowledge and confess his sins and weaknesses before Allah Ta‘ala. From the depths of his heart and with complete sincerity he should beg Allah Ta‘ala to forgive and pardon him.
