Moving Mountains

Untitled Document

.....................................................................................................................

Divine Love is that spiritual steam which will cause our spiritual ‘engines’ to move. Unfortunately, we don’t seem to have the required steam to reach our journey’s end.

Whilst we are on track and we know the destination we should be bound for, we start moving and then stop … because the steam of the love of Allah, in our hearts, is very negligible.

When the steam of the Love of Allah will fill our hearts, we will move mountains.

It reminds me of another incident in the life of Hazrat Ibraheem bin Adham (Rahmatullah ‘alaih). Once he and another buzroog were sitting on the hill of a mountain, deep in discussion. 

During their conversation, Hazrat Ibraheem bin Adham (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) was asked as to the distinction and perfection of the ‘elite’ servant of Allah. Narrating an incident, he replied : “If he were to say to a mountain : ‘Move!’, it will move.”

No sooner did he say so, a slight movement of the mountain was experienced. He then addressed the mountain : “I did not command you to move. I merely cited an example.” The mountain then became still.

…This steam of the heart is such that it makes a person do what he is otherwise incapable of doing.

 

subheading-iconSteam Engines


There are various types of spiritual steam ‘engines’, which are to be found in the ‘train’ of the human body. The first, even though on track, does not have steam (i.e. the steam of the Muhabbat of Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) ). It therefore does not move.

The second kind of steam engine is also on track, but because it has very little steam, it just trudges along listlessly. Sometimes, it moves due to external pressure and exertion. …This is in regard to those who are forced to make Ibaadah. Their attitude and approach is one of laziness and indifference.

The third engine has plenty of steam but the train is derailed. This is in reference to those indulging in anti-Sunnah activities. They have plenty of love but instead of following the Qur`aan and Sunnah, they follow their whims and desires.

The fourth one is on track and it has plenty of steam. In fact, due to the same, it moves at ‘express’ speed. Insha Allah, it will reach its destination. This is in relation to the Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala) (the people of Allah).

Once our hearts fill up with the steam of Divine Love, then it will not be difficult to give up looking at Haraam, listening to Haraam, speaking Haraam and indulging in Haraam. Due to this love, everything becomes very, very easy and simple.

So Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) said that the first sign of a lover of Allah Ta’ala is that the person has attained unto the stage of Fanaa.
