Hazrat ‘Umar

Nav for Ikhlas

Once, Hazrat Umar (j) was heard saying : “Ah!  Ah!” due to pain.

…This reminds me of a beautiful exposition given by my Sheikh, Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhum). He says that in the beautiful and exquisite name of Allah, lies the ‘Ah’ of the servants of Allah.

Out of His Loving Kindness and Compassion, our Beloved Allah has included the ‘Ah’ of our distress in His Personal name, Allah; so that when we experience pain, grief and sorrow we may remember Him and call upon Him.

The names of the numerous and diverse ‘deities’ of other religions do not have a name as the name of our Allah, which is not only sweet, as it is gentle, but also a name which includes the plea of His servant…

Nevertheless, someone said: “O ‘Umar, You are Khaleefatul Muslimeen, and so powerful and strong that the mention of just your name instils fear and awe into the hearts of even the Persian and Roman Emperors; and here you are saying : ‘Ah! Ah!’ ?” 

Hazrat ‘Umar (j) replied : “My Allah desires to show that despite the apparent strength of this ruler, look at his weakness.  I am in pain and He wants me to reveal and acknowledge my weakness, whilst not complaining of Him (Allah Ta’ala).”

In other words it is not permissible to complain about Allah Ta’ala.

…Who can have more sabr (patience) and shukr (gratitude) than the Beloved of Allah, Nabi Muhammad e ? …Yet on one occasion, he had a cloth tied tightly around his blessed head, and was saying : “Wa-raasaah” (meaning : ‘O, what a pain in my head.’), due to the severity of his headache.

This was, however, not in complaint about Allah Ta’ala.
