Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis
1. We have to learn to plead to Allah Ta‘ala. Many a times, when we shed a tear or two we think that we do not need to make any further du‘aa. However, this is not the case. We have to go on pleading and crying to Allah Ta‘ala.
2. What is the purpose of the different du‘aas in the qa’dah position in namaaz. In the tashahhud we recite “Assalamu ‘alaika ayyuhan nabiyyu ...” The purpose for this is to acknowledge the favour of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam); he was our Nabi and divinely appointed by Allah Ta‘ala. Without this recognition, we will be total failures. We then go further and recite “Assalaamu ‘alaina wa ‘ala ‘ibaadillahis-saaliheen.” So this is to acknowledge the favour of those pious individuals – our asaatizah, their asaatizah etc., our parents and other deeni elders – who were the means of us gaining the imaan and little righteousness that we have. After the tashahhud we recite the Durood e Ebrahim in which we send salawaat upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and upon ‘aali Muhammad’. The word ‘aal’ refers to family and could also refer to followers. So in this durood, we recognise the favours of all the ummatis.
3. If a person really has true talab and yearning to gain something then he will humble himself before Allah Ta‘ala. To achieve this we will have to think of our humble beginnings and what position we hold in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala. This will then bring about a balance and one will not be consumed with pride.
