Ibaad-ur-Rahmaan (Servants of the Most Compassionate – Allah Ta`ala)

(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis - Saturday 23rd March)

In Surah Furqaan, Allah Ta`ala speaks of `Ibaad-ur-Rahmaan. Allah Ta`ala wants `abdiyyat (servitude) from us and this requires ma`rifat (recognition) of Allah Ta`ala. We are from dust and we will turn into dust. The quality of dust is that it complies with whatever is done to it. So one should be in agreement with whatever Allah Ta`ala does. You will beg Allah Ta`ala for aafiyat (ease), but thereafter accept whatever conditions come your way. It must not be the opposite where our name and reputation becomes primary and Allah Ta`ala becomes secondary. Whatever the matter be, a wedding, friendship, etc. the primary thing in all these is the pleasure of Allah Ta`ala. Understand your position and yourself, as to what you are and what you are made of. Repeatedly ponder over this. Allah Ta`ala attributes the word `Ibaad to Rahmaan. The purpose being that Allah Ta`ala wants us to become embodiments of mercy and compassion.

The first description of these servants is that they walk upon the earth softly. This means that they walk with humility. 

The next quality is that when people address them in an ignorant fashion they say words to respectfully avoid problems. We should always try to avoid any type of confrontation. A problem that we have is that many a times we like to incite and provoke others.
