The Majalis (programmes) of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb, are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays after `Asr Salah at the Madrasah Taleemuddeen Musjid during those times of the year when Madrasah is open.

One at 9.30 a.m., a second after the Asr salah and a third at night after the taraweeh salaah daily.

When Shaytaan was rejected he was disturbed because he served and worshipped Allah Ta‘ala for so many years, yet Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) was given all the recognition. When we analyse the situation, we will realise that it was his fault and incorrect rationale. What he should have thought was that I had dedicated myself for the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala, and my personal pleasure is something else. So it is at the time of the crunch that we find where one’s loyalty lies.

On the occasion of the Battle of Mutah, a Sahaabi who was not officially part of the army killed one of the Roman warriors and as per the normal system, it was understood that he will be able to take the weaponry and armour of this warrior as part of his share of the booty. However, at the time of the distribution of the booty Hadhrat Khaalid bin Waleed (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) decided to join it with the general booty. Hadhrat ‘Auf bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) objected but Hadhrat Khaalid did not accept it. After returning to Madeenah, both these Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) went to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to enquire as to what was the correct decision to have been taken.

1. On one occasion, Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) wrote a letter to Hazrat Moulana Raipuri (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) without his father’s knowledge. When his father Moulana Yahya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) came to know of it, he reprimanded him saying: “Your father is still alive and you have already hoisted the flag of independence.” Thereafter when he was a little older, around the age of 19 or so, he went for a few days to Raipur to spend in the company of Hazrat Raipuri (rahmatullahi ‘alaih). Whilst there, he wrote to his father saying that he was missing him a lot. Moulana Yahya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) wrote back saying that you need the care and direction of your senior as long as you are not firm in your nisbat.

When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) sent Hadhrat Mu‘aaz bin Jabal and Abu Moosa Ash‘ari (radhiyallahu anhuma) to Yemen, his parting advice to them was: bashshiraa wa laa tunaffiraa – give people glad tidings about the rewards of actions etc. and don’t chase people away. If you are going to have an aggressive and hard attitude and you want people to move in one instance from one end to the other then you will not be able to achieve this and get it all at once. That is why Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) explained how to teach and initiate people into Islam; you will first invite them to Islam. If they accept then you will teach them initially regarding salaah and then gradually regarding zakaat and other aspects. So why won’t you tell them all what they need to do at once.

Allah Ta‘ala says that He has made us successors on earth. There is no void and vacuum of people at any given time. Hence, it is a manifestation of Allah Ta‘ala’s beauty. There is nobody present here today who was here 100 years ago, and from the present time nobody will be alive in 100 years. So in this whole equation, what Allah is saying that we have a very brief stay and the purpose is to test and examine man: “liyabluwakum fee maa aataakum” in the gifts and favours that Allah has bestowed him with. And the real test is in the different ranks given to some over the other; one person is more popular and someone is not known. It is a test in the gifts of Allah, whether a person will become boastful or not.

In the mutaqaddimeen (the pious predecessors), the greatest emphasis was on tarbiyat i.e. to get the refinement in character and ways, and secondly on having the right association. Thereafter, other things in life fall in place. It is so important that it is like a vessel and container. If it is clear and pure then its contents will be preserved.

A shaikh-e-tareeqat has to be a mujtahid. This means that he has to investigate every case individually and then work out the program for the individual. There are different approaches to reforming an individual that were adopted by the Chishtiyah and Naqshbandiyah. It is like the difference between a doctor and a hakeem. The approach of the past hakeems was that they would diagnose the illness and attempt to remove the illness. As the illness is removed the body regains its strength since it is the illness that is preventing the energy from building. The doctor looks at it differently; he provides the patient with energy and in turn the energy will push out the illness. Both are mujtahids and experts in their field and they have specialised. In tareeqat and sulook, the same applies. The Naqshbandi approach is to provide the energy. Hence, in the past they would start off with zikr as soon as the person comes to the khanqah. The Chishtiyah in the past would remove the illness first.

When the traffic gets completely out of control with cars driving in all directions and in any manner and there is nobody to control it, in fact those that we expected to control it are actually encouraging it then obviously this will lead to chaos and disaster. In such a situation, the most sensible thing to do is to remain indoors, and if you have to travel then go with such a squadron and in such a manner that you can reach your destination safely. If you look at the global condition presently and more so the prevalent deeni condition then this is how it seems. The reason being that there are all types of movements that are thriving, and any person who comes up with some new thinking and ideology and supports it with some logical backing eventually gains support. Everyone takes to it and continues. As a result, people look at and view the Quraan differently and study situations differently. Hence, there will be no way to come to a proper decision. At times, we look at a personality and are overwhelmed by him and we think that how can I speak out against him because he will feel prejudiced and what will he think of me. So the thing is that people are not looking at ‘what is right’, but ‘what is my right’.

1. Islam is the vehicle of Allah Ta‘ala and He will ensure that it continues till the end of time. Anybody who comes in its way will be crushed. If you board it then it is to your advantage and if you remain out of it then you will remain stranded. But your boarding onto it will not add any more beauty to Islam. It does not require any additional beauty. Rather, it lends towards your beauty. If you jump off then it is not a train smash, for Allah Ta‘ala will fill up this train of Islam with others who Allah loves and they love Allah.
2. When Abdul Muttalib went to Abraha, Abraha was amazed that he came to negotiate for his animals that were taken and not to negotiate regarding the destroying of the Ka’bah. So Abdul Muttalib replied that the Ka’bah has its own Rabb who will take care of it. There will always be those who will come in the way of Islam. We hear of all the incidents that are taking place and then fear and panic overcome us. We should remember that Islam cannot be destroyed. Most of the time, the information that we get is from the media that is controlled by the kuffaar and their whole motive is to create panic and fear and tarnish the reputation of Islam and the Muslims.

1. Allah Ta‘ala instructs Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to narrate the narrative of the sons of Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) in precision. The reason for emphasising the aspect of precision is that many people are not cautious in narrating incidents. Sometimes important aspects are left out and sometimes the whole narrative is distorted and changed. That is why the Quraan must be written in the original Arabic script. If the translation has to be written, then it has to also be written with the Arabic script. The fuqahaa do not allow an independent translation without the Arabic text. Further, you cannot write a transliteration. The reason is obvious. If an independent translation or a transliteration has to be written then after every century it will change and eventually it will be distorted, but if it is with the Arabic then it can always be checked. This is what happened in Christianity where distortions began right from the 2nd century.
