Disinterest in the World

(Highlights of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis - Saturday 18th May)

It is important that we discuss the lives of our akaabir. In these incidents one will understand the nature and disposition of the people of the past. Otherwise, we will confine ourselves to law and we will not know its practical implementation. We should discuss them repeatedly so that it settles in our minds. When we study the lives of our pious predecessors we find that a common feature in them was abstinence from the world.

The fuqahaa state that when a person makes a bequest that his wealth be given after his death to the most intelligent person, then the recipient will be the one who is most disinterested in the world and most interested and concerned of the hereafter.

Nowadays, we become so obsessed with material wealth that we are unable to distinguish a luxury from a need and thus luxuries become needs. For people like us it is advisable, in fact it is compulsory that we go to the qabrastaan and contemplate over the reality of life. Look at the ages of the people who passed away; what were they and what they achieved and, now where are they?
