Asr majlis – Monday 13th Ramadhaan / 22nd July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. At times the cause for a person going off-track is an external one, eg. Bad company, whilst at other times it is due to some concealed corruption that he has within his heart. Shaitaan enjoyed the excellent company of the angels, yet he was rejected due to this concealed corruption. Most the times, this concealed corruption is pride, as was in the case of Shaitaan as well.

2. The simple explanation of pride is that a person wishes to be distinguished from others. He wants to show that “I can do this, I have this type of influence, I enjoy these privileges” etc. It takes years to rid the heart from this evil.

3. Our whole effort it to get connected with Allah Ta‘ala. However at times, there are obstructions that come on our path and a type of fog settles on the heart. An easy way to remove this is to make istighfaar 20 times after every salaah, or for 2 minutes before every salaah. This should be done with true remorse and with a heavy heart. 

 

 

Morning majlis – Monday 13th Ramadhaan / 22nd July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

The amount of comforts and luxuries we see around us today was probably never experienced before. But strangely the more the items of luxury, the more the discomfort and depression. The same applies to medicine. Doctors have progressed to this level that a man’s heart can be removed from his body, get treated and then replaced. But here also every coming day there are more and more complications. Similar is the case with security. We enjoy so many levels of security yet we still feel so insecure. The reason for all this is that we have removed Allah Ta‘ala from the equation. We need to firmly believe that Allah Ta‘ala does. The controls are solely in his hands. The stronger this conviction becomes the more comfort, mental ease, guidance and direction we will find. On the contrary the more godlessness comes into a person the more he will find himself falling into depression and despondency. 

   

Night majlis –Sunday 13th Ramadhaan / 21st July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. The effort of the khanqah is to bring about a selfless motive. Whatever is done should be done only for Allah Ta‘ala, without any agenda and ulterior motive. There are two outlooks that a person can have (1) Materialistic and (2) selfless. If you want anything to prosper and gain acceptance then add the ingredient of ikhlaas into it.

2. We need to review our lives and understand who we are and where do we belong? Life isn’t just for material. We belong to Islam and we have to go to the Aakhirat (Hereafter). Hence remain on the original path and work towards that direction.

   

Asr majlis – Sunday 12th Ramadhaan / 21st July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. There are several kitaabs compiled on the du‘aas of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). These du‘aas are very powerful. We need to find those du‘aas that are more relevant to our situation and read them with understanding and concentration. 

2. We need to constantly ask for forgiveness and ‘aafiyat (ease). Even if all our sins are supposedly forgiven, the istighfaar is still of benefit since it will be recorded as an act of virtue and we will be rewarded for it. ‘Aafiyat (ease) is the most comprehensive favour after Imaan, since we require ease in all our deeni and worldly works. 

3. One of the very comprehensive du‘aas of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was: “O Allah! Grant me an accommodating character.” This is so important because as long as we live with people there will definitely be situations that will go against us. We will have to tolerate all of this. If a person is not prepared for this, he must go stay on a mountain top where there will be no one to upset him. 

   

Morning majlis – Sunday 12th Ramadhaan / 21st July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. Often these questions are raised that why did Allah Ta‘ala stipulate more for a man to receive as inheritance as compared to a woman? Or why are there 4 rakaats in the Asr salaah and 3 in Maghrib? Some regard these questions to be a sign of intelligence whereas they are actually a sign of weakness of faith. Primarily such objections are made either because of a lack of true love for Allah Ta‘ala or alternatively because of a lack of respect. 

2. There are many things which are possible, looking at the supreme power of Allah Ta‘ala, but are not normally achievable, e.g. A man at the age of 95 who has a host of health complications is anxious to come first in a marathon. The secret behind a happy life is in not going behind these things, since it would bring endless discomfort to us and others. 

3. When trying to achieve something, never project a figure. This projecting brings about 2 problems, (1) You will become despondent and very soon fall into a depression, and (2) Out of frustration you will begin to fight with everyone. The state of the mind should rather be:  “I will work and then be happy with whatever I receive. If I don’t receive enough, tomorrow is another day. I will try again.” In this way you will remain happy as well as those around you. But when you project too much then initially you hurt yourself. And with time you want that hurt to fall on others as well. You then get gripped with jealousy and begin to run others down etc.

Night majlis – Saturday 12th Ramadhaan / 20th July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. Allah Ta‘ala is the goal in life. His obedience should not be a routine. We have so many books for du‘aas etc. However, it is all recited as a routine. But this should not be the approach with Allah Ta‘ala. With one’s wife, one does not show his love as a routine. One will look for ways to enhance the love. The same should be with Allah Ta‘ala. A wife will ask for a facelift in the kitchen and house. So for Allah we should lift ourselves.

2. Let us dedicate this month of Ramadhaan for Allah Ta‘ala. This will be obtained by an increase in tilaawat and zikr of Allah Ta‘ala. I asked a black new Muslim to increase zikr and he with all his occupation daily reads 15 000 laa ilaaha illallah. We have to make the time for zikr. There is no excuse that we can present. Appreciate every moment. At least for the month of Ramadhaan complete 70 000 kalimahs and try to secure our Jannah. If it cannot be read in one day then spread it out over all the days.

 

   

Asr majlis - Saturday 11th Ramadhaan / 20th July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. A person cannot make decisions based on his emotions. Rather his intellect has to govern his emotions. 

2. When there is a problem between one’s wife and mother, the safer route for most people is to remain silent, because very few people can be absolutely fair and make a sound judgement. 

3. One cannot get upset with everything the wife says. They are deficient, so we have to overlook many things of theirs. 

4. The problem today is everyone is after “figures”. Either financial figures or the figure of women.

 

   

Morning majlis – Saturday 11th Ramadaan / 20th July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. The hadeeth teaches us to focus on our own wrongs and not to blame others. On the contrary, the Western attitude trains us to throw the blame onto others and always find an escape route for ourselves.

2. Sometimes we are made to suffer the bitter consequences of our wrong doings. Largely this happens when we either belittle a person who got caught up in some wrong activity or we regard any wrong deed as insignificant.

3. When embarking on a sin, don’t think whether this is a major or minor sin. Rather look at who you are disobeying. The sin may be small but by committing it we are displeasing Allah Ta‘ala who is the greatest of all beings.

4. When a person has the correct mindset then his entire life is in order. He fully understands how to overcome any situation and brings comfort to himself as well as others. This correct mindset is attained by associating with the pious.

5. If both parents are deeni conscious and are seeing to the proper upbringing of their children then that is excellent. However if only one parent has this deeni motivation and the other just doesn’t seem to be paying any interest then what should be the response? The concerned parent should do his/her best to nurture the child correctly to the best of his/her ability. He/she should not sit back and say: “Oh! What must I do? I am landed with this problem. There is no way out for me. This is in my taqdeer.” This is not in keeping with Islamic values, rather it is the effect of Western values, which lead one to despondency and losing hope.  

 

   

Night majlis – Friday 11th Ramadhaan / 19th July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. Islam is easy and simple. All that we have to do is embrace and accept it. However, we should not try to go about doing only that which suites us. It should be embraced entirely.

2. When embarking on committing an evil, then think of the power and might of Allah Ta‘ala. When you pass by the locations of previous nations then reflect and ponder and take lesson from their lives. Don’t just visit those places for mere sightseeing. 

 

   

Asr majlis – Friday 10th Ramadhaan / 19th July

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

Allah Ta‘ala speaks about Ibraheem, Ishaq and Ya’qoob (‘alaihimus salaam) that they had sight and hands. The question is that everyone has sight and hands, so what special quality is being explained here? What is meant is that they had real sight and hands. In other words, they used their intelligence and energies correctly. They always kept the viewpoint of the Aakhirat (Hereafter) at the forefront and their drive towards the Aakhirat far excelled their drive for this world. This was their distinguishing feature and this is the sign of acceptance in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala. The Quraan Shareef tells us that even Shaitaan cannot interfere with those who are truly focused towards the Aakhirat. Such people are classed as the special selected servants of Allah Ta‘ala.
