Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

1. Allah Ta‘ala describes the manner of the du‘aa of Hazrat Zakariyya (‘alaihis salaam) in the beginning of Surah Maryam. The purpose of this is to teach us the etiquette of du‘aa. The manner of his du‘aa was nidaa’an khafiyya (softly). Du‘aa should not be made by screaming and shouting, rather softly with extreme humility. He then expressed his weakness before Allah Ta‘ala of his old age, but explained that he desired a son to take charge after him. Hence, in du‘aa one should not challenge or show an attitude to Allah Ta‘ala. Instead, express your weakness and inability before Him. Even in this world, if you disobeyed a person and thereafter sought his forgiveness together with expressing your weakness and inability, his heart will melt and he will forgive you.

2. Sometimes, we find that our du‘aas do not seem to be getting answered yet we have made du‘aa for such a long period of time. One of the reasons is that Allah Ta‘ala loves to see us crying and begging of him. It brings joy and happiness to him, just as the chirping of birds in a cage bring joy to its owner.

3. Nowadays we always look for shortcuts and an easy way to get our work done. So what is the shortcut and easy way to gain the maximum on Laylatul Qadr. Two ways came to mind: (1) The night starts from Maghrib (sunset) and ends at subh saadiq. Normally we are still fresh and have control of the time between Maghrib and Esha and by the time taraaweeh is over we are tired. Hence, maximise by doing ‘ibaadat after Maghrib. (2) We are advised in the hadeeth to recite this du‘aa on Laylatul Qadr:“Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni” (O Allah! You are the One who forgives and You love forgiving. So do forgive me.) Hence, in the intervals between every four rakaats in Taraaweeh Salaah, you can easily recite this du‘aa approximately 10 times.
