Muslims in the face of the Ummah’s challenges


(Highlights of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis - Saturday 24th August)

Many a times, after listening to and reading articles regarding the present crisis facing the Muslim Ummah, many feel saddened at the plight of the Ummah and then think of the way forward. The whole motive for this crisis is that the disbelievers wish to divide and rule and thus disunite the Ummah. Now, how can we reunite the Ummah? As Muslims, our duty does not end at just making a hue and cry. There is no follow up after these processions. Many of us will assist in financial aid and support. However, this is just a temporary and short-term relief. The disunity will still continue. Hence, we need to come on to a common platform and discuss things that are noncontroversial. In this way, one thing will lead to another and our objective will be achieved. Together with this, we need to turn to Allah Ta‘ala and start of bu bringing this unity within our own homes and take it from one level to another.

Tasawwuf is not only about theory. It is about changing the thought process. Many a times a qualified person with knowledge does know the correct application. In many cases, a girl who studied in a Madrasah only gets the knowledge, but she lacks the application because the mother felt that the aapa or someone else will teach them how to run the home and she does not need to do anything. On the other end the aapa feels that the mother will train the girl. Hence, such women are just for themselves. In the past the mothers would train their daughters and thus they were in conformity with the lifestyles of the Sahaabah-e-Kiraam.

In the past, the khanqahs would work on the thought process before initiating the individual in zikr. Every aspect of the individual’s behaviour was checked before he could move ahead. Thereafter, the buzurg in the khanqah would employ different methods to rid the individual of those maladies. One of the worst obstacles in this path is that of pride and looking for some recognition.
