The Sahabah

Untitled Document

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

An incident in the life of a Sahabi will, Insha-Allah, be an incentive and a means of inspiration for you and me.

Once some Sahabah were sitting in the court of a king, having been invited to attend a feast. During the course of the meal, a Sahabi accidentally dropped a morsel of food. As is the Sunnat, he picked it up, dusted it and ate it.

Someone commented that this action would not be to the liking of the people of the court. The Sahabi responded: “Must I, for the sake of these foolish ones, discard the Sunnat of my Beloved e ?”

The person whose objective is to please Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) is granted, within his heart, complete and absolute independence.

Thus, our endeavour is to please Allah Ta’ala and   Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) . When Islam has made our lives so simple and easy, why introduce complexities and perplexities to life ?

The Aashiq of Allah is therefore neither affected by criticism or praise. Whether he is praised or criticized, it is one and the same. He does not differentiate between the two. 

 

subheading-iconPraise


Many a time, we find our pious elders being praised – in speech or in poetry. As such, some question the piety of that Wali since he is listening to his own praises. This is due to our ignorance.

The Hadith which makes mention that dust be thrown in the faces of those who are given to praising people is in regard to Rasulullah’s disapproval of praise which is meant for material gain and benefit, or to please a man by mentioning those qualities which are not found in him. Added to this, such praise would ruin a person if he then considered himself worthy of such praise.

However, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) had also said that when a true believer is praised, then his Imaan increases. The condition for such praise is perfect and complete Imaan. On listening to his own praises, this person does not look at himself, rather, his attention is directed to Allah : What am I ?… Nothing. This praise is really Yours.

For such Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala) (people of Allah), praise is a means of their Imaan increasing, but for weak ones like us, we need to be very cautious. Our egos take off very quickly and get bloated. The Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala) are not affected negatively.

In fact, praise is Allah Ta’ala’s gift to the Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala). Allah Ta’ala blesses the Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala) with Thana-e-Khalq’ (praise of creation) and this is one of the commentaries of the dua wherein we ask of Allah Ta’ala, ‘…Hasana fid-dunya…’ (‘The best of this world’)

The footprints of the of the Beloved of Allah, Nabi Muhammad (SAW) is the road to Jannat; the sunnats of Rasulullah (SAW) connect with Allah Ta'ala
