When the Sun Rises

Untitled Document

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

My Sheikh presents a wonderful and splendid analogy. He asks: “When does the sun rise?” and then he, himself, gives the reply:  “When the horizon turns red.”

Then he continues to describe the spiritual condition of the heart in the same light : When the heart turns red with the blood of one’s evil desires which have been sacrificed for the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala, then Allah Ta’ala causes not just one ‘sun’ but many ‘suns’ of His Muhabbat (Love) and Ma’rifat (Recognition) to rise in such a heart.

The sun of this world has restrictions : It neither lights up the entire world at once, nor is its heat always the same. Moreover, whilst it brings light and warmth as it rises; it inevitably sets, leaving behind darkness.

The ‘suns’ of Allah’s love rise within the heart and lights it up. These ‘suns’ do not set unless the person becomes a persistent sinner, without Taubah (repentance). Added to this, the one in whose heart, the ‘suns’ of Allah’s love and ma’rifat have risen, will generate such light that will in turn light up the hearts of people all over the world.

…The pain endured by the heart brings in its wake, happiness, satisfaction, the noor of Imaan and the sweetness of Imaan. In fact, the sorrow of the heart on this path of Divine Love is the very envy of happiness. Such a person is blessed with the companionship of Allah Ta’ala, for Allah Ta’ala says : ‘I am with those of broken hearts.’

Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) mentions the exceptional stage reached by those who adopt patience in abstaining from fulfilling their evil desires : On subscribing to sabr (patience) and sacrifice, the ‘Ahh’ which continually and invariably issues forth from that ‘bleeding’ heart transports one to the supreme and absolute stage of Wilayat. Maulana Rumi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) says :

Those who resort to Sabr on the Path of Allah;
Have acquired the Wilayat of the Siddiqeen

subheading-iconIncorporating Ibaadah


Nevertheless, whilst the Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) of Allah should form part of our spiritual diet, we must also understand that the verbal Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) which we make is not the only way.

Sometimes we take to a certain form of Ibaadah like how a duck takes to water and then we think that this is the only way. Tilawat of the Qur`aan Sharief, Dua, Salaah, etc. are all required but with the most important ingredient of Ikhlaas (Sincerity).

The Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) which we make, is an aid and assistance. It is instrumental in us fulfilling the Ahkaam of Allah Ta’ala.

Added to this, it removes the rust that has accumulated on our spiritual hearts. It provides the spiritual steam that makes our ‘engines’ move.

When we take the name of Allah then this results in a purification of the heart. Thereafter, the Qur`aan Tafseer and the Ahadith will take immediate effect because our hearts will be able to receive the same. Otherwise we just listen and listen and listen and remain at square one
