Role Reversal

Untitled Document

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

When children become fathers and fathers behave like children, then Qiyamat must certainly be near. In fact, one of the signs of Qiyaamah, as has been mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) , is: “…the maid servant would give birth to her master or mistress.”

Due to the tendency of disrespect and disobedience, children of later generations (i.e. these times) will not only be defiant but also assertive and domineering. They will treat their mothers in the manner a slave-girl is treated.

These days the children dictate and issue instructions and orders, and parents are found submissive and compliant to their children’s ‘authority’. Parents are found pleading and begging their children to do such and such. So many parents say that their children treat them as if they are children and their children, the parents.

The same ‘role reversal’ is to be found in schools, Madrasas, etc. In every department we find that senior ones are no longer respected. Children, pupils, mureeds, etc. regard themselves as equal to and on par with their seniors.

 

subheading-iconAkhlaaq and Aadaab


Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) had himself emphasized akhlaaq and aadaab, saying : “I have been sent to perfect good morals and manners.” He therefore also said :“Whoever does not honour our elders is not of us.”

If we were to reflect, we would find ourselves lacking in true and sincere respect, honour and thus obedience.

In a gathering of senior personages, who were also true lovers of Allah Ta’ala, Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) considered it disrespectful to say anything without being asked to. He is teaching us aadaab (etiquette).

They then asked him to also contribute to their discussion and present his opinion : “O Iraaqi, you also might as well elaborate on this issue.”

In response, he did not refuse. He did not say : “You have said something, therefore I will not say anything.”

When there was the demand of etiquette and respect, then at that time he fulfilled the demand, but on request, he spoke. He said that which surfaced from the very recesses of his heart and soul … a beautiful explanation and exposition that stirs the heart.
