Another Perspective

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

A person who has realized this degree of self-annihilation will also not attribute any achievement to his own hard work and effort. His worldly as well as spiritual achievements increase him in submission and humility. Such a person is found even more submissive to Allah Ta’ala, the Giver of all bounties.

Wealth, properties, gold and silver, degrees and qualifications do not create pride and arrogance within him. He does not think:“I am a great person.” due to the same.

 

subheading-iconThe Fadhl of Allah


All achievements are attained through Divine Grace,
And without His Favour nothing is accomplished.

The person thus believes that had it not been for the Fadhl (Grace) of Allah Ta’ala then he would not have been recipient to the ‘taufeeq’ (Divine assistance) for all these achievements. This knowledge and understanding creates humility and submission.

Those who are the Ahle-Ilm (People of knowledge) will not attribute their rank and status to themselves. They too would be aware as to who has blessed them with this Ilm. Added to this, our intelligence, in itself, has been given by Allah.

I always cite the example that we regard the computer as a fantastic invention, a mind-boggling invention and no doubt it is, but who is the one who gave man the ‘chip’ in his head to manufacture such a chip that records billions of pieces of information ?

Intelligence, knowledge and understanding have been given by Allah Ta’ala. Their acquisition, is in reality, not within our power and ability.

The person who is making Ibaadat – Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala), Tilawat, Tuhajjad, Ta’leem, Tableegh, etc. is also humble because he understands that this is the ‘taufeeq’ and Fadhl of Allah. It is the kindness of Allah Ta’ala that He has granted the opportunity to do so.

…At this moment in time, how many of our brothers and sisters are at the cinemas, theatres, clubs, casinos, escort agencies, etc.? It is no doubt the Fadhl of Allah Ta’ala that He has given us the opportunity to come into His house and remember Him.

subheading-iconA Point to Understand


Whilst annihilation is a quality which we need to inculcate within ourselves, I would, however, like to clarify one point : People ask as to how such humility is possible for a person who has completed his matric or is a B.A. graduate to then regard himself or consider himself to be lesser in knowledge than the child who is in Class 1 or Std.1?

Likewise, how can the person who has got a million think of himself as having less than the person who has got only R10 ? … This is obviously impossible.

The person who is a matriculant will certainly think of himself as having more knowledge than someone in Class 1, and the person who has a million will definitely regard himself as having more than someone with R10… This is permissible. What is meant is that the person does not consider himself superior to any other. This is something which Allah Ta’ala will inform us only on the Day of Qiyaamah.
