When it comes to food, every individual has a certain preference. Fish may perhaps be the favourite meal for some and a definite distaste for others. It is for this reason at times the host finds out from the guest as to what meal should be prepared. The desire of the host is to please the guest.

In the same way we are all the servants of Allah Ta‘ala. Our object and desire is to please our Allah Ta‘ala. If we were to use our own intelligence and invent ways to please Allah Ta‘ala, then most definitely we would have failed miserably. Our loving Allah Ta‘ala, having mercy on us, sent to us the final messenger Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) to teach us how to please our Creator, Allah Ta‘ala. As long as we live our lives on the beautiful and perfect way shown to us by Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) then we will enjoy the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala.

decept10Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

In today’s times, the statement, “This mouth is unworthy of making du‘aa” is commonly heard from people. A person once came to me and expressed the same feeling, saying that he was unworthy of making du‘aa. In reply, I asked him, “Do you perform salaah? Do you recite the kalimah?” When he replied that he does perform salaah and recite the kalimah, I said, “When you are worthy enough to perform salaah, to fast and to recite the kalimah, then why are you unworthy of making du‘aa?” This feeling, that you are unworthy of making du‘aa, is in actual fact created by Shaitaan in his effort to mislead you. He wishes to deprive you of the barakah of turning to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa. Similarly, your nafs does not wish to exert itself in any work. Therefore, whenever it is told to do any good work, it looks for some excuse or the other to avoid doing that good work. (Malfoozaat Husnul Azeez pg.128)

Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that before the Battle of Badr, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had sent Busaisah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) as a spy to gather information on the caravan of Abu Sufyaan. After Busaisah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) returned and reported the whereabouts and activities of the caravan, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) emerged from his home and announced, “We have something to pursue. Whoever has his conveyance prepared should ride with us.” Hearing this, some Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), in the eagerness to join the expedition, asked permission to fetch their conveyances from the upper portion of Madeenah Munawwarah. However, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) did not permit them to do so and said, “No, only those whose conveyances are present (will ride with us).”

attracting-ideal-clientsHazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

My beloved friends! Life and death is something over which there is no guarantee. Remember the advice I wish to share with you! My advice to you is that you should strive to the best of your ability to emulate the mubaarak sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The second advice which I wish to give you is that you should endeavour to establish khaanqahs and halqas of zikr in your localities. Encourage people to engage in zikr and teach them Deen. Do not wait for people to come to you to learn Deen or to acquire self-reformation. In this era, you will have to adopt all means in trying to win people and attract them towards Deen. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 2/142)

The Purpose of a Believer Acquiring Wealth

Trees-coinsHazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and many other Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘ahum) had acquired a lot of wealth during their lives. In fact, many Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) would receive a regular income. However, from the wealth they possessed, they would spend very little on their personal needs. Their food and clothing was extremely simple. In fact, they would lead lives of poverty. The reason for this was that despite them acquiring a good income, many of them would spend all their wealth in the path of Deen and even used to take loans for the upliftment of Deen (which they would pay off later on). In reality, the purpose of a Believer acquiring wealth should be in order to use it for Deen and spend it in avenues pleasing to Allah Ta‘ala. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.125)
