Our only Concern

Untitled Document

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

To get back on track; our endeavour should be to try and reach this stage of independence, where we don’t concern ourselves with such words and statements of criticism and mockery.

If we have to adopt the attire of the Sawliheen, do good and righteous deeds and join the company of the pious, then people will brand us munafiqeen (hypocrites), or will attribute our deeds to riyaa (show). More often than not a person has to contend with discouraging and even disheartening remarks and comments.

If we have to pay heed to what others have to say and then prevent them from the same, then how many tongues can our two hands hold and then too, for how long ?

This is a sign that we have not established a true nisbat (connection) with Allah Ta’ala and His Rasul e. As a result, we are worried about what others will say and think of us. …Where have we got such time to waste ? The concern which should occupy our 24 hours is : Is my Allah pleased with me or not ? Is my Beloved Rasul e pleased with me or not ?

…It’s easy to know this. Check how much we are doing to please them.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) had said : “If someone wants to know what position he enjoys in the eyes of Allah, he has only to look at what place he gives to Allah (in his heart and life).”

 

subheading-iconThe Weakness of our Imaan


The message of tonight’s talk is that we need to make a concerted effort to develop this steam of Divine love. Until we do not acquire and conserve this steam of Love within ourselves, everything we do will remain Zaahiri (external).

…It really stuns a person, but all that can be done sometimes is resort to fervent and sincere du’aa that Allah Ta’ala grants to us such Imaan that impels us in the right direction and keeps us steadfast.

Just this afternoon, a young person, with a beard, Deeni libaas (attire) and who is a five-time namazi requested me for permission to shave his beard. Why ? …Due to an application which was made for a visa to a certain country. The person in charge of the department told him that he stands no chance with his beard.

So he said : “I just want permission to shave my beard and get the application through. Once I’ve got my papers, I’ll keep my beard again.”

I said: “Bhai, have I made the Shariah that I can give you permission to shave your beard ? …What of the displeasure of Allah? If you want to shave and displease Allah Ta’ala, why make me a partner in your sin ?”

This is the point I’m trying to make : Just Salaah, Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala), some  Deen work, a little Da’wah and Tabligh, or a short visit to the Khanqa, is not sufficient. The necessary element is the steam of Divine love.

This Imaani steam is only obtained from the hearts of those who have the reality of it in their hearts. In the company of those whose hearts are aflame with the love of Allah Ta’ala, we too will get that steam. Otherwise, Shaytaan will easily convince us to indulge in Haraam in spite of our work of Deen.

…So I asked this person as to what guarantee he has that Izraeel (‘Alaihis Salaam) won’t extract his soul while the razor is moving down his face. What guarantee does he have that even if he gets those documents, he will live to see a few more months, so that the beard grows one fist length?

Alhamdulillah, this brother made sincere taubah from this sin and kept his beard.
