Purpose of muraaqabah (contemplation)


Tuesday, 13 April 2010 20:18

Q: Did you ever see the condition of Moulana Radha Ahmad Khan whilst making muraaqabah?

A: Is muraaqabah made to inspect the faults of others. Muraaqabah is not made for this purpose but it is done for one to reflect over one’s sins and to think of a method in which one will be able to make taubah (repent) for it. Nevertheless, I do not speak against him nor have I said anything that would bring disrepute to him. His followers may speak ill of me but I will not respond.

Q: One buzurg had mentioned that Moulana Ahmad Radha Khan had such a high level of `ishq (love) for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam that it is possible that Allah Ta`ala will forgive him on account of this love.

A: Yes. One should not say anything regarding Allah Ta`ala. However, one always has the right of saying the truth.


The wisdom of reciting Muhammadur Rasulullah everytime one says Laa Ilaaha Illallahu ten times when making Zikr


Tuesday, 13 April 2010 20:05

Whilst encouraging someone to make jahri (audible) zikr Mufti Sahib mentioned, “Recite Laa Ilaaha Illallaahu two hundred times daily and after saying the kalimah ten times recite Muhammadur Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam This is because the kalimah has the property of heat and some level of moderation needs to be created. This will be created by reciting Muhammadur Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.

Moulana Ganj Muradabaadi Rahmatullahi Alayhi being firm in islaah


Monday, 12 April 2010 22:40

Hadhrat Moulana Fadhl-ur-Rahman Ganj Muradabaadi was very firm and strict in islaah. He was so firm that even a person like Moulana Thanwi رحمة الله عليه was in awe of him. Moulana Thanwi has written this himself. (Referring to the incident of his journey from Kanpur to Ganj Muradabaad.)

Moulana Shah Abdur Raheem Sahib Rahmatullahi Alayhi  had also visited Moulana Fadhl-ur-Rahman. Before leaving he made three du`aas: (1) I should not need to ask the direction from anyone. (2) Moulana Fadhl-ur-Rahman should not become angry with me. (3) He should make du`aa for me. His du`aas were answered and all three of his wishes materialised. He did not need to ask for the direction, Moulana did not get angry with him and Moulana had made du`aa for him.

Mufti `Azeez-ur-Rahman Sahib Deobandi Rahmatullahi Alayhi had also visited Moulana. Moulana had seen him from a distance and said, “There is no need for you to come. Go back.” Mufti `Azeez-ur-Rahman turned around and left.

Immediately Moulana was informed through ilhaam (divine inspiration) that Mufti Sahib was a high ranking personality. Subsequently, Moulana sent someone to call Mufti Sahib. Mufti Sahib was then called and Moulana had now honoured him.


A similar incident


Monday, 12 April 2010 22:37

Someone had come to Moulana Madni Rahmatullahi Alayhi pretending to be extremely sincere and began massaging Moulana’s feet. This resulted in Moulana feeling sleepy. Thinking this to be an ideal opportunity, this person woke up, pulled out Moulana’s wallet and left. Moulana had all this while pretended to be asleep.

On yet another occasion, Moulana had travelled to a certain place. After meals Moulana pulled off his sherwani and hung it before resting. Someone came in and very skilfully stole the money that was in the sherwani. In the meanwhile this was the only money that Moulana had carried with him. Thus, Moulana was forced to borrow some money to complete his journey.

However, this person was so impressed that he never went back to stealing again. This (silent treatment) is also a method of islaah but in doing so one is required to put oneself into difficulty.


This is also a method of islaah

Someone had come to Deoband and stayed at the guest quarters of Moulana Madni Rahmatullahi Alayhi. He would be present at meals time but at the time of salaah he would not be present because he would not perform salaah.

A relative of Moulana Madni who was studying at that time reprimanded this person and said, “You are a strange person. You are present at meals but at the time of salaah you are not present. Why don’t you perform salaah?”

When Moulana Madni came to know of this he reprimanded his relative and said, “He is neglectful of his duty to Allah and not to you. Who are you to reprimand others?” From then onwards this person began performing his salaah. This is also a method of islaah.
