A Prescription

Untitled Document

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

Since hurt and grief is natural when a person is criticised on his implementation of Shariah or when Shariah, itself, is scorned and mocked at, Allah Ta’ala presents to us the prescription which was delivered to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) who had to contend with much more than we do.

“Indeed we know that your chest (i.e. heart) is straightened at what they say. So glorify the praises of your Lord and be of those who prostrate themselves (to Him).”
[Surah Al-Hijr 15 : 97 / 98]

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) was instructed to engage himself in glorifying and praising Allah Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala has made His Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) (Remembrance) and Praise a balm for such wounds of grief and sorrow which covered the heart of His Beloved e , and which also stain the hearts of His Lovers.

Allah Ta’ala also instructs:

“And be patient (O Muhammad e) with what they say, and keep away from them in a good way.”
[Surah Muzzammil 73 : 10]

When the disbelievers maligned Nabi  with insulting and blasphemous titles such as ‘majnoon’, ‘soothsayer’,  ‘magician’ and the likes, Allah Ta’ala prescribed that sabr (patience) be adopted.

In the Tafseer of this ayat, the Mufassireen make mention that ‘Hajrann Jameel’ directs us to politely keep aloof of those who mock, not to complain to others of their hurtful and troublesome behaviour, nor become physically or verbally abusive, nor retaliate and requite evil with evil. Rather accommodate in a selfless manner a quality which Allah Ta’ala prefers from His servants :

Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur`aan Sharief :

“The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with that which is better (to be patient, forgive, etc.), then verily, he between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend.”
[Surah Fussilaat 41 : 34]

This attitude was not only part of the disposition of the Ambiyaa (‘Alaihimus Salaam) but is a very apparent quality of the Auliya Allah : together with patience and forgiveness there is always du’aa for the guidance of those who harmed them, and a continuous effort is made towards their guidance.

“And verily, whosoever shows patience and forgives that would truly be from the thingsrecommended by Allah.”
[Surah Ash-Shuura 42 : 43]

Then again, we should consider that ‘majnoon’ was a title given, by the rejectors of truth, to all the Ambiyaa (‘Alaihimus Salaam), the Sahabah-e-Kiraam , the Mashaa`ik and the Ulama-e-Haq. Yet those who were called ‘majnoon’ (mad) were the ones to receive Allah Ta’ala’s special Grace, Mercy and Benefactions.

Moreover, Allah Ta’ala being free of any kind of defect would never appoint a ‘madman’ as His Rasool. Allah Ta’ala addresses His Beloved Nabi:

“You (O Muhammad e) are not, by the Grace of your Lord, a madman.”
[Surah Al-Qalam 68 : 2]

Allah Ta’ala, Himself, then says about the character of Nabi:

“And verily, you (O Muhammad e) are on an exalted
standard of character.”
[Surah Al-Qalam 68 : 4]

And :

“Indeed, in the Messenger of Allah you have a Beautiful example…”
[Surah Ahzaab 33 : 21]

Those who call the Beloved Rasool e, ‘majnoon’ are themselves mad.

Nevertheless, we will find that criticism, mockery, hatred, etc. only generates and increases, in the Auliya Allah, the Noor of sabr (patience), hilm (tolerance), forgiveness, etc.

Furthermore, Allah Ta’ala mentions that He, Allah, is the companion of that person who adopts sabr (patience) :

“…Verily Allah is with those who are patient.”
[Surah Baqarah 2 : 153]
