Toffees

Untitled Document

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

A little child was brought to my Sheikh, Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhum). When Hazrat offered this child a toffee, the child turned and looked at the father, questioningly. The father said : “Take it.” - so the child took the toffee.

To us this is common behaviour of children, well trained by their parents. But take heed of the lesson derived by Hazrat.

Hazrat then said : “What a beautiful lesson…. These children are trained by their parents not to accept gifts and sweets from strangers. This is exactly what a Believer should be doing. There are many black, white and brown ‘toffees’ (ghair mahareem) to be found on the streets. The nafs says : “Take a lustful glance.”

The one who has recognized Allah Ta’ala, the one who knows that he has to stand before Allah Ta’ala and render an account for the bounties of his sight, hearing, etc. will turn to his ‘Rabba’ (Allah Ta’ala) – “Must I accept this ‘toffee’ or not?”

The child will turn to ‘Abba’ but this person now turns to his ‘Rabba’ and  asks : “What is Your instruction ?”, “Do I accept it or not ?”

The one who is an Aashiq of Allah will not fall for such temptations because he looks to the instructions of Allah, be it in trade, on the streets, at home, marriage, walima – in fact in every circumstance.”
His concern is : Is my Allah pleased with this or not ? If Allah is not pleased, then the whole world can express their pleasure and approval but it will accrue to nothing but misfortune and disaster, in this world and the next.

 

subheading-iconA Thought-Provoking Incident


Another example comes to mind : A girl was being dressed and beautified by her friends prior to her being sent to her husband’s home. Her sisters and friends complimented and praised her : “You look beautiful.”, “You look lovely.”…On hearing all these praises the bride began to tear.

They said : “This is not an occasion for tears. Why are you then crying?”

She replied : “All of you are saying that I look beautiful and wonderful but when my husband will say : “You look beautiful.”, then that will be the time for me to smile.”

…There are so many husbands who have the prettiest of wives, yet they are involved with other women and thus do not have any interest, liking or appreciation for their wives, who are Halaal (lawful) for them…

This bride is teaching us a lesson : When Allah Ta’ala will say: “I am happy with you.” then that will be the time for us to smile.
