A Misunderstanding

Untitled Document

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

Then again, many people are wont to say that if a person thinks nothing of himself, then this is adopting a very negative attitude. Since the outlook and approach is not positive, a person will not achieve anything in life. This is a misunderstanding.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) thought absolutely nothing of himself. Annihilating himself in the Love of Allah Ta’ala, he was the most humble.

In his every dua, we will find his absolute humility and dependency, yet after Allah Ta’ala, he is the greatest.

All of the Sahaba-e-Kiraam thought nothing of themselves. Despite this, not only did they reach spiritual perfection, they also achieved tremendous success in their worldly lives.

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique was completely humble and led a most simple life, yet he is the greatest after the Ambiyaa (‘Alaihimus Salaam). He was the first Khalifa to succeed Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)  and, as has been mentioned, the 8 gates of Jannat (Heaven in Urdu) will all call out to him to enter Jannat (Heaven in Urdu) through them, on the Day of Qiyaamah. Is success like this, both in this worldly life as well as the next, not an achievement ?

Hazrat Umar ruled over two thirds of the then known world during his Khilafat yet we find him sleeping under a tree, dressed in patched clothing and considering himself to be utterly insignificant.

On one occasion, a thought passed through his mind : “O Umar, You are great. Ambassadors from huge empires come to meet you….” What did he do ? He took a water bag, filled it and began to distribute water. (They did not have taps at that time).

Someone asked him : “O Umar, why are you distributing water in this heat ?”

Hazrat Umar explained : “The thought came to my mind that I am great.” …Considering this a spiritual weakness, he remedied it with humble, menial work. In fact, we will findthat such great personalities did not consider it beneath their dignity and rank to do humble, domestic work.

Hazrat Uthman was extremely wealthy and is well known for his generosity and liberal spending in the path of Allah. Hazrat Abdur Rahman bin Auf, who is one of the Ashara Mubashara [the ten Sahabah who were given the glad tidings of Jannat (Heaven in Urdu)] was also one of the wealthiest Sahabah . He was so wealthy, that it is even mentioned in one narration that he emancipated 30 000 families of slaves, besides giving thousands in Sadaqa and in other causes of Deen.

Great, great Auliya Allah thought nothing of themselves, but they will be remembered till the Day of Qiyamat

subheading-iconAbu Zarr


Once, whilst Hazrat Jibra`eel (‘Alaihis Salaam) was with Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) , a Sahabi happened to come by. Hazrat Jibra`eel (‘Alaihis Salaam) said to Nabi : “This is Abu Zarr.”

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) enquired : “Do you know him ?”

Hazrat Jibra`eel (‘Alaihis Salaam) replied : “Abu Zarr is more famous, amongst us angels in the heavens than he is in Madina.”

On inquiry as to how Hazrat Abu Zarr had achieved such recognition, Hazrat Jibra`eel (‘Alaihis Salaam) explained that due to two actions, he had become very beloved to Allah.

One was an action of the heart and the other, an action of the body. The action connected with the heart was that he thought himself to be most insignificant. As such, he was fulfilling the right of his being a servant of Allah. This is something which Allah Ta’ala loves and approves very much of.

The action of his body was that he recited Surah Ikhlaas in abundance. This, then, earned him such praise and eminence amongst the angels.

What was the predominant attribute which was the means of such fame and popularity? It was the same humility.
