Being Grateful for Passing Urine


Monday, 16 November 2015 15:41

Towards the end of his life, Hazrat Moulana Ahmad Shah Saahib (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) suffered some type of a sickness affecting his bladder. He passed urine by using a tube attached to a bottle, which he held in his hands. He even had to travel in this condition.

Someone once asked him: “What is the cause of this sickness?”

“My evil actions,” he lamented.

Puzzled, the man asked: “What evil actions are you talking about?”

“For years on end, I was able to pass urine a few times in a day with ease and comfort. However, not once did this ungrateful tongue of mine ever express gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala for this favour of His. Which action can be more evil than this? Allah Ta‘ala has warned us of His punishment for ingratitude:

وَلَئِن كَفَرْتُمْ إِنَّ عَذَابِي لَشَدِيدٌ

“And if you are ungrateful, indeed My punishment is severe.” (Surah Ebrahim, v7)

(Discourses of Faqeeh-ul-Ummah Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi, vol. 2, pg. 5)


The Beautiful Companion


Monday, 28 September 2015 15:02

The worldly life and its possessions will perish. A person accumulates hordes of money. However, when he dies, will he take his wealth and treasures with him to the grave? No, he will not take anything. Everything will be left behind.

A person cultivates a beautiful orchard, constructs a magnificent building, buys a magnificent car, opens up businesses and factories, becomes a member of different parties, and accomplishes many feats. Which of these will accompany him to his grave? None of them! The only thing that will accompany him is excellent character and righteous deeds.

(Discourses of Faqeeh-ul-Ummah Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi, vol. 1, pg. 22)
