Piety and the Need to Consult


(Highlights of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis - Saturday 14th September)

1. The cash benefit of piety is that you receive the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, the du‘aa of the malaa’ikah and the du‘aa of the believers when they recite at-tahiyyaat ‘as-salaamu ‘alayna wa ‘alaa `ibaadillaahis-saaliheen’. In fact, even the deceased make du`aa for the righteous. On the other hand, the evil doers earn the curse of Allah Ta‘ala, the curse of the malaa’ikah, and the curse of the believers, both the living and the dead. They are also cursed by the other creations of Allah Ta‘ala.

2. Many a times, on account of our authority we earn the curses of those below us. We feel that we have people under us in our employ and we can thus treat them as we wish, but in reality it works against us, that through our oppression we get what we want but then these people curse us.

3. It is a compulsory duty of every believer to create the consciousness and awareness of Allah Ta‘ala. Further, it is compulsory to consult and make mashwarah with someone for our personal deeni affairs. For business problems we will go to an accountant, and if we did not do so then the whole family will be against us. Likewise, for a medical problem we will consult with a doctor, for we feel that health is very important to us. Hence, why do we consider deen to be so cheap and unimportant that we can ask anybody and everybody and do what we feel?

4. When consulting, we should refer to those who have knowledge and the sincere ‘ibaadat of Allah Ta‘ala in order that we receive proper counsel. Otherwise the one who only has knowledge, then despite having knowledge he may look for his personal interests in the counsel. Hence, the one giving us advice and counsel should have sincerity and a strong understanding of deen.
