Animals in Human Form

Untitled Document

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

One Sage (Wali), residing in Delhi (India), used to always attend the Jamaat Salaah at the Musjid, blindfolded. Prior to leaving his home, he would blindfold himself and have his khaadim (servant) see him to the Musjid. When in the Musjid, he would get to the first row, remove the blindfold, and thereafter not look around.

After some time had elapsed following this routine, the khaadim, one day, when in the Musjid, asked his Sheikh as to why he had adopted such a strange habit as to blindfold himself. …Why should he not use the sight Allah Ta’ala had blessed him with ?

In reply, the pious, saintly one, removed his topi (hat) and placed it on the head of the khaadim and told him to look around the Musjid. When the khaadim glanced around him, he saw hardly any human beings. Instead he saw various kinds of animals.

This Sheikh then explained that when he came to the Musjid he did not see human beings, rather their characters. For example: if a person was shameless, immoral and filthy, then he saw a pig. If a person was greedy and miserly, then he saw a dog. If a person found pleasure in harming others, then he saw a scorpion or snake. If a person was sly, shrewd and cunning in nature, then he saw a fox. If the person was mischievous and caused trouble and inconvenience, then he saw a baboon or monkey, and so forth.

This is the malady of our society. The majority of us have the characteristics of animals and not human beings.

Maulana Jalaluddeen Rumi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) says:

“Humanity is not the name for flesh, fat and skin.
It is the name given to those attributes,
characteristics and deeds
Through which Allah Ta’ala’s pleasure is attained.”

Islaah (reformation) of the Nafs, Tazkia (purification) of the heart and the development of Akhlaaq-e-Hameeda is Fardh-e-Ain (i.e. it is obligatory and compulsory upon each and every individual). Our concept and definition of Bay’at, Sulook and Tasawwuf is simply the recitation of a few wazeefas. We content ourselves with this and make no effort on the reality of Tasawwuf.

In fact, as a result, many have misunderstood ‘Tasawwuf’ as something apart from and very different from Shariah, if not a complete innovation. Whereas Tasawwuf is an integral part of Shariah; and substantial proof of it is to be found in the Qur`aan Sharief and Ahadith.
