The Consequences

Untitled Document

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

A doctor had mentioned that he made an application, in a certain country, for a post available some years back. He too was told the same thing : People will not give him much consideration because of his beard and kurta. He was told that if he shaved his beard and wore a suit, he would get some prominence. So he said that he fell for the temptation. He shaved his beard, wore the suit and went for the interview.

He is a pious doctor, a namazi with concern for Deen and Shariah but he fell for the temptation of Shaytaan and nafs and shaved his beard.

He related : “I swear Maulana that I am speaking the truth. That same night, I saw Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) in a dream and he stared at my face with anger. I could see the anger on his face. When he walked into the room, in my dream, the room became brightly lit. He then stared at me; his face, red with anger. He then suddenly left and the room went dark. And I got up with a fright.”

He didn’t know what to do and it worried him greatly. Of course, he grew his beard again and made sincere taubah from shaving his beard in future.

Naturally, it should go without saying, that Islam is not just the beard. Islamic teachings cover all aspects of life.

So the message is simply that we develop this steam of Divine Love. Whilst it is not necessarily achieved and realized instantaneously, at least we have become aware of it. ‘Sulook’ entails some effort.

May Allah Ta’ala give to us that intense love for Him, so much so that it becomes extremely easy to do that which is pleasing to Him and stay away from everything which is Haraam and forbidden.

 

subheading-iconWhy We Fail


Without the effort to stay away from Haraam, we can never ever secure this Love of Allah in our hearts. As a result, when the real test comes, then we fail miserably. Sometimes we fail with our marriages or walimas, or some other family occasion. If not, then we fail in business or in some endeavour pertaining to our worldly or religious activities. Why?

…Because we have not made the effort of learning Divine Love. When there’s no steam and when we have not fallen intenselyin love with Allah, what demonstration of love can we exhibit?

Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) is teaching us a lesson : If we don’t have these signs then we should not make any claims that we are true lovers of Allah.

…May Allah Ta’ala make us of His true and sincere lovers.

The person who has developed these qualities will invariably be enjoying the closeness and company of Allah Ta’ala. Therefore, Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) had also mentioned that if we cannot be in the company of Allah Ta’ala, due to our weakness, then we should keep company with those who have received that special Tajalli and who have established that special nisbat with Allah Ta’ala.

In fact, this is the instruction of Allah Ta’ala. He says :

“…And join the company of the Truthful ones
(the pious, the Auliya Allah).”
[Surah Taubah 9 : 119]
