Desiring the wealth of others


Tuesday, 02 February 2021 06:23

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

One should bear in mind the following aspect. If one acquires something from someone without asking, nor having the desire and expectation of receiving the item from him, then there will be a lot of barakah and blessings in the item which one has acquired. However, if one acquires something from someone through asking, or after having the expectation and desire of acquiring the item from the person, then there will not be any barakah and blessings in such an item which one has acquired. For example, one sees a wealthy person and desires that he gives him something from his wealth, then this is regarded as ishraaf-e-nafs (desiring the wealth of others) and this is not permissible in shareeah.

Qaasim bin Muhammad (rahimahullah), who was the grandson of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and an outstanding scholar of Madeenah Munawwarah, mentions that when his wife passed away, Muhammad bin Ka’b Qurazi (rahimahullah) came to console him. While consoling him, Muhammad bin Ka’b (rahimahullah) narrated the following incident to him:

Among the Banu Israaeel, there was a man who was blessed with the knowledge of Deen and would exert himself in the worship of Allah Ta‘ala. This man had a wife whom he loved very deeply. When she passed away, the man was so grieved and affected that he went into seclusion in a room, locking the door and completely refraining from meeting people. In this manner, no person could enter (and meet him).

Eventually, a woman, who had heard of this man (and the tragedy which he suffered), came to his home. She said, “There is a certain mas-alah (question) that I need to ask him, and I have to ask him this question directly.” When the people (at his home) left, she did not move away from the door, insisting that it was necessary for her to speak to him.

Creating Deeni Motivation in the Hearts of People


Tuesday, 26 January 2021 06:51

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

In the early period of Islam (when Deen was weak and preference was being given to materialism), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would visit the homes and gatherings of people, who had no interest or inclination towards Deen, and invite them to Islam. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would not wait for people to show interest before he extended the invitation of Islam to them. On some occasions, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) also deputed and sent certain Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to various places with the aim of inviting the people to Islam.

Currently, the Ummah is viewed to be in the same weak condition as was prevalent at the beginning of Islam. Hence, we should also adopt the same approach of going to people who are weak in their Deen and motivate them towards practising Islam.

The Secret to True Happiness and Fulfilment


Wednesday, 20 January 2021 06:05

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

Acquiring happiness in life is not based on possessing abundant wealth. Rather, acquiring happiness in life is based on the contentment of the heart and soul. This contentment of the heart and soul can only be acquired through fulfilling the commands of sharee‘ah and strengthening one’s relationship with Allah Ta‘ala.

If a person is steadfast on Deen and fulfills the commands of sharee‘ah, then even though he does not possess a lot of the world, he will find inner happiness and satisfaction. On the contrary, if a person is not firm on Deen, then despite possessing a lot of the world, his heart will lack true happiness.

Becoming a ‘Shareholder’

The Muhaajireen were those Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who were commanded by Allah Ta‘ala to leave their homeland of Makkah Mukarramah, while sacrificing their homes, relatives, friends and businesses, and migrate to Madeenah Munawwarah for the sake of Islam. As difficult as it was for them to uproot themselves and leave their established lives behind, they did so, making this tremendous sacrifice solely for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala’s pleasure.

On arriving in Madeenah Munawwarah, they were welcomed with open arms by the Ansaar – the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who resided in Madeenah Munawwarah. These Sahaabah were named the ‘Ansaar’ on account of the extent they went in assisting the Muhaajireen and supporting Islam.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) knew that on arriving in a foreign land, the Muhaajireen would require support until they could become established and settled. Thus, he would pair the various Muhaajireen with the Ansaar, in a bond of brotherhood, so that each Ansaari could assist and take care of the Muhaajir until he gained independence.
