(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis (Saturday 29th September)

The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum) were open and direct with Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). They never concealed anything from Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). This is borne out in the incident of Jaabir (radhiyallahu anhu) on their return with Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) from a battle. 

He began to move ahead hurriedly and Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) asked him the reason for the rush. He replied that he was newly married and he was longing for his wife. Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) understood the natural emotions of this sahaabi. He then asked him whether he married a spinster or a widow. He replied that he married a widow upon which Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) asked him the reason for this. He explained the reason being that he had orphaned siblings who needed someone to care for them. If he had married a spinster then his siblings would not have a proper upbringing. This was the farsightedness of this sahaabi.

What we lack nowadays is the emotional contact and relationship with Allah Ta`ala. When it comes to our relationship with our wives then there is no limit to our emotions. In fact, the time that is spent in intimacy is considered too short. The friends of Allah Ta`ala have the same feeling when they are engaged in the ibaadat of Allah Ta`ala. The moment their ibaadat is over, they yearn for the next opportunity when they will be able to bow down before Allah Ta`ala. This all comes about with submission. In the different advances that one adopts with his wife, he does not ask the reasons for doing it. It is his submission to his emotions and he immediately accedes to his desires. When one submits himself to Allah Ta`ala then there is no question of “why?”.

This submission is an important lesson that is learnt from this month of qurbaani. It was a common feature in all the Ambiyaa (alaihimus salaam). In fact, it was found in the lives of their families. This was as a result of the deeni ta`leem (teaching) that they implemented in the home. Look at Sayyidah Haajar. When Hadhrat Ebrahim (alaihis salaam) left her and Ismail (alaihis salaam) in the barren land of Makkah Mukarramah, she remained contented when she was informed that this was the command of Allah Ta`ala. When this was her level of submission then her actions were also beloved to Allah Ta`ala to such an extent that Allah Ta`ala has made it part of Hajj, without which a person’s Hajj remains in complete. In the sight of Allah Ta`ala, women also hold a very special position and they too can make incredible strides in progress.
