(Highlights of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis - Saturday 28th December)

1. The mashaayikh normally boost a person’s morale based on the type of person it is and the level of his consistency etc. The reason being that a person will find it easier to move ahead and progress if his spirits and morale are high.

2. Tableegh can be done in different ways, it is not confined to a single way, though the best is to conform to the way of the tableegh jamaat since they have a proper system in place. The problem that many of us have is that we will only do something if we get the ideal. However this is incorrect. If we cannot get the ideal it does not mean that we should not acquire what is within our capability. What we can earn now, earn it. We may be sitting in our businesses and have a few spare moments. So don’t let those moments pass without gaining anything. We could take out the Quraan and make some tilaawat or make some zikr etc.

3. For one to get the right shape and understanding one needs to remain in the company of the pious for a long period of time. The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) as great as they were, had to remain in the company of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to achieve what they got. Hence, for those who come after them, they will have to associate themselves with their elders and pious. But in order to progress you will have to explain to these pious personalities your weaknesses and faults.

4. Generally, we would like that our name be preserved and maintained, and that people should speak greatly about us etc., but we do not worry about how we view others. However, the reality is that ‘we should look at others with respect and at ourselves with suspect’. We should always be suspicious of ourselves; is there any evil lurking in my heart, pride, vanity, etc. One’s personal ma’moolaat etc. are important, but keeping the heart clean and free from evils is even more important. If we have the ‘azmat and honour for deen then we will refer to someone for all matters that pertain to our islaah and deen.
