Khalaf Al-Birzaalee mentions the following incident:

On one occasion, a man with leprosy who was also blind and had lost his arms and legs was brought to me. I thus took him and kept him with the other lepers. I thereafter forgot about him for a few days. When I remembered, I (went to see him and) said to him, “O so-and-so! I had forgotten about you! How are you doing?” He replied, “My Beloved, He Whose love is such that it is infused into my every particle and it prevents me from perceiving the pain of my condition, does not forget me.”

I (again apologized and) said, “I forgot (i.e. I did not intentionally neglect to check on you).” He replied, “I have One who always remembers me – and why would the lover not remember his beloved when he is before his eyes all the time, in signs recognized by intelligence and understanding? (i.e. when I recognize Allah Ta‘ala through His signs and constantly remember Him, then how can He forget me?)”

I then asked him, “Shall I not get you married to a woman who will assist you to remain clean?” Hearing this, the man began to weep. He then took a deep breath, turned his eyes towards the sky and exclaimed, “O the Beloved of my heart!” He then lost consciousness.

Turning to Allah Ta‘ala at All Times

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

If a beggar comes to one’s door, begging with humility and helplessness, then one will give him something and will not let him go hungry. In fact, even if one finds a hungry dog at his door, then he will give it something or the other to eat. Hence, if a person presents himself at the door of Allah Ta‘ala (through turning to Allah Ta‘ala and sincerely begging Him for his needs), will Allah Ta‘ala let him go hungry and not fulfil his need?

It is reported in a Hadeeth Qudsi that Allah Ta‘ala says, “O son of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam)! Free yourself for My worship, and I will fill your heart with contentment and will bring an end to your poverty. However, if you do not do so, then I will fill your hands with occupations and I will not bring an end to your poverty.” (Sunan Tirmizi # 2466)

Divinely Protected After his Death

During the year 4 A.H., a few members of the ‘Adhal and Qaarah clans approached Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and mentioned that their clans had accepted Islam. They then requested Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to send a few Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) with them to their clans for the purpose of teaching them the Quraan Majeed and the injunctions of Deen.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) thus deputed a group of ten Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) with them, appointing Sayyiduna ‘Aasim bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) as their ameer (leader). However, the reality was that these people had not actually accepted Islam, but had pretended to do so in order to deceive the Muslims and betray them.

Accordingly, when they arrived at a place named Rajee’, they summoned the Banu Lihyaan clan who arrived with an army of two hundred men to attack the Sahaabah. Realizing that they had been betrayed, Sayyiduna ‘Aasim (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and his companions fled from there and finally climbed up a hill for protection.

The Efforts of the Musjid

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

All musjids in the world are branches of Musjid-e-Nabawi, the musjid of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Hence, the Deeni efforts that used to take place in the Musjid of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) should be carried out in all musjids.

During the era of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), apart from the five daily salaah being performed in Musjid-e-Nabawi, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would impart the knowledge of Deen to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and make an effort upon their Deeni reformation. Together with this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would send jamaats to the various areas to propagate Deen to the people or to educate them regarding Deeni matters.

An Effective Method for Leaving out Sins

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

One method which I prescribe to people for leaving out sins, is that every night before sleeping, one should seclude oneself in a room and sincerely supplicate to Allah Ta‘ala to forgive him for his sins. One should make du’aa to Allah Ta’ala in the following manner: “O Allah! I am an extremely sinful servant! I am not worthy of any good and I am full of weaknesses!” Through these words, one should express one’s true condition of sinfulness before Allah Ta’ala. Thereafter, one should say, “O Allah! I do not have the courage and resolve to leave out these sins! It is only You who can assist and help me to leave out these sins!”

If one adopts this method, then insha-Allah, in a week or two, he will be blessed with the taufeeq and ability to leave out these sins. However, very few people are willing to sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala in this manner.
