Morning majlis – Thursday 23rd Ramadhaan / 1st August

Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis

Allah Ta‘ala commands us in the Quraan Shareef to adopt taqwa. Taqwa means to abstain from all forms of disobedience at all times. It should not be that on selected occasions we refrain from wrong and other times we commit them. There should be consistency and taqwa should be applied everywhere at all times. However getting a complete hold over taqwa is not so simple. Hence Allah Ta‘ala out of his compassion shows us procedures as well. 

1. In one place Allah Ta‘ala says: “Fear Allah and every soul should inspect what it has sent forth to the Aakhirah.” The procedure of attaining taqwa which we are shown here is to ponder over the qabr and the life to come. We should be concerned of how we will fair there and not suffer any disgrace or embarrassment in that realm. This thought will then cause us to refrain from any type of disobedience. As a person keeps thinking on these lines then he slowly develops taqwa.

2. In another place we are told: “Fear Allah Ta‘ala as you ought to fear him and don’t die except as Muslims.” Dying and passing away is not in our control. So what is then meant by this verse? It is quite famous that ‘as you live so shall you die.’ Hence if we live as Muslims we will die as Muslims too. If we have our allegiance with Allah Ta‘ala and his Rasul (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and submit to them completely, we will die like that too. Imam Ahmad bin Hambal (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) lived for Islam and stood up against the prominent leaders of the time for the preservation of Islam. Hence we find he passed away like that also. He passed away as a true Muslim and was blessed with true honour. Hundreds of thousands of people attended his janaazah salaah, and thousands had accepted Islam on that occasion. 

3. The third aayat is: “Fear Allah Ta‘ala and speak correctly.” The aayat before this reads: “Do not be like those who harmed Moosa (‘alaihis salaam).” The method of adopting taqwa shown to us here is to look after the tongue and not to cause any distress to the people of Allah Ta‘ala.
