The Effect of Zikr

Hazrat Moulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) once advised:

“No matter how unmindful a person may be, but when he takes the name of Allah Ta‘ala, it certainly has an effect on him.”

The thought may arise that when we sit down to make zikr, numerous thoughts plague the mind, hence what benefit does such zikr have? It is incorrect to think in this manner; what benefit is derived from this type of zikr? Zikr performed inattentively also has its merit. Has Allah Ta‘ala not made it possible for the tongue to engage in zikr?

This indeed is a very great favour of His. We should express our gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala for this favour and plead to Him to make our hearts more attentive. Both the tongue and heart are in the control of Allah Ta‘ala. He has made it possible for the tongue to take His name so He will also ensure that the heart is affected by it. We may be unable to perceive this effect, but we should place our trust in Him.

Being Grateful for Passing Urine

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)

The Beautiful Companion

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)
