Acquiring the love of Allah Ta'ala and His Rasul (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)

Summary of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's after Asr majlis on the 26th of Ramadhaan 1433

The whole effort is to infuse the love of Allah Ta'ala into the heart. Once the love is there, the person moves automatically. The love should be so intense that a person is not prepared to make any compromise with regards the laws of Deen. Five things should be done to acquire the love of Allah Ta'ala and his Rasul (sallallahu alaihi wasallam):

  1. Ask Allah Ta'ala to sustain one with his love and the love of his Rasul (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).
  2. Follow the ways of Rasulullah (sallallahu alahi wasallam) in the minutest of things.
  3. Sit in the company of the lovers (the pious servants of Allah Ta'ala).
  4. When doing any action, make the intention that I am doing it for the love of Allah Ta'ala.
  5. Ponder over the favours of Allah Ta'ala and his Rasul (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

Confession of our Sins – An Act Greatly Loved by Allah

Summary of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's night majlis on the 27th of Ramadhaan 1433

Allah Ta`ala loves the one who confesses his wrong and mistake. Our father Adam (alaihis salaam) taught us this lesson. When he committed the mistake, he admitted his wrong and repeated the words “Rabbana zhalamna anfusana”. On the other hand, Shaitan displayed arrogance and an attitude which earned him the eternal curse.

Among the last Surahs to be revealed was Surah Nasr wherein Allah Ta`ala instructs Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) with“wastaghfirhu” (Seek forgiveness). From then onwards Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) increased his istighfaar. Likewise, once we reach the age of forty, we should increase our istighfaar. In fact, nowadays, death has become so unpredictable, that we should now start increasing our istigfaar from before. Our istighfaar should not be out of convenience. Instead, it should be a sincere repentance with a firm resolve never to return to those sins.

Respect

Summary of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's morning majlis on the 27th of Ramadhaan 1433

Respect is a fundamental aspect in a person's Deen, without which a person lies in great danger. A salient feature in all our pious predecessors is that they always maintained a very high level of respect for their elders, as well as all the pious and learned scholars before them. Our progress in Deen depends on revering and honouring our pious predecessors. Although they may have had differences amongst themselves, this does not license us to degrade them in any way. The teachings of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), as well as the lives of the Sahaabah (radiyallahu anhum) and the Aimmah Mujtahideen are replete with examples of respect.

Understanding the Theme in the Life of the Mashaayikh

Summary of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's after Asr majlis on the 27th of Ramadhaan 1433

The Mashaayikh have certain personal habits, which at times are a result of a certain spiritual or mental condition that they are experiencing. One does not need to follow them in these aspects, rather one needs to understand the theme of their life and follow them in those aspects. For example, Hazratjee Moulana Maseehullah (rahimahullah) would never sit of lye down with his legs fully stretched out. He always kept them slightly bent. This was as a result of the overwhelming consciousness of Allah Ta'ala. We do not need to follow him in this, since we do not experience the same consciousness, rather we need to follow him in that which was the theme of his life, and that was, not harming anyone in the least, and totally avoiding anger .

Affection to the Creation

Summary of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's night majlis on the 28th of Ramadhaan 1433

After his appointment as khaleefah, Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu anhu) was approached by the children of the neighbourhood who told him that they feared he would no more show them the type of affection he used to show them before. They would hold his hands and amuse themselves with him. Abu Bakr (radhiyalahu anhu) assured them that he would still continue showing them the same kind of affection. Despite him holding such a position yet he didn’t feel it below his dignity to even show affection to the children of the neighbourhood. This is what we need to instil in our lives. And the very first people to start off with are our immediate family members, especially the womenfolk, for they are naturally weak.

Be kind and compassionate to our staff. However, when it comes to female staff and workers, then we should not be interacting with them directly. There is always the chance of your temptations having the better over you. So in such a situation, leave out the wrong for the sake of Allah Ta`ala and He will allow you to receive the same in a halaal manner with honour and respect.

The social fabric of Islam revolves around two aspects: (1) simplicity (2) modesty. The western social fabric also has two elements: (1) extravagance (2) immorality

The Path of Salvation

Summary of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's morning majlis on the 28th of Ramadhaan 1433

Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum) were practical and realistic. They did not pose questions to merely appease their intellectual curiosity; rather they asked pertinent questions. Once they received the answer, they strictly adhered to the instruction contained therein.

One of the overwhelming concerns was that when we are confronted with Fitnah from all sides then what is the way forward? Hence they asked Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam): "What is the path of salvation (against all Fitnahs)?" Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) gave them a three point plan:

  1. Guard your tongue.
  2. Don’t leave your home unnecessarily.
  3. Weep over your sins.

Enhancing the Spirituality of our Ibaadaat

Summary of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's after Asr majlis on the 28th of Ramadhaan 1433

We carry out our Ibaadat merely as a routine. It's good, but till when are we going to continue like this? We need to bring love into our Ibaadaat. At times one minute of the Ibaadat of a lover of Allah Ta'ala is better than years of our Ibaadat. The lovers of Allah Ta'ala may not do too much of actions, but they mind is constantly in thought and meditation. When they eat as well, they ponder over the favours of Allah Ta'ala and are in constant communication with him. We are like an immature child who doesn’t appreciate the aspects of love, since that horizon hasn’t opened up to him. Hence we need to explore that horizon.

Lust and wealth

Summary of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's night majlis on the 29th of Ramadhaan 1433

A kaafir’s objective in life is just fulfilment of lust. This leaves one without being any different from an animal. When this is the outlook, then man will be able to stoop to become the worst of the creation. He will not even be concerned whether disgrace overcomes him or not. Wealth is not the best thing for many people. It may look good and attractive but it comes with its price.

We generally criticise the Arabs. But they are the ones who did the initial work for the propagation of Deen. Bilal (radhiyallahu anhu) used to daily make dua for the Quraish. They just need to get ignited and they will move like fire. Make two duas for them: (1) They should become united (2) Have the correct direction in life.

A real commodity to earn and purchase is taqwa. A Hadeeth tells us that one who has taqwa will remain safe even if he is the territory of his enemy. So get this taqwa which is that all the time we have the consciousness that Allah Ta`ala is watching.
