    Some Words Of Wisdom...

    Report bad ads?

    As-Salaam alaikum,
    It is my pleasure to share with you the following words of wisdom, coming from prominent Sheikhs in the world of Islam.... for our perusal and use in everyday life. Here we go:--

    (1) "Sadness departs with a sajda. Happiness comes with a sincere Du'a. Allah does not forget
    the good you do. Nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved
    from them. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh. Live
    your life with this principle: 'Be good even if you don't receive good, not because of others
    sake but because Allah loves those who do good.'-- Imam Ibn al-Qayyim.

    (2) "A person is not a sincere repenter as long as there is no remorse in his heart, no Instighfar on
    his tongue, and as long as he does not abandon sins, and as long as he does not strive in Ibaadat.
    Only then will he be a sincere repenter."-- Sheikh Ahmad Hawaari.

    (3) "Happy is he who wakes up in the morning and Ibaadat is his occupation, solitude is his abode,
    the Aakhirat is his focus, death is his concern and with Taubah he hopes for the Mercy of
    Allah."-- Sheikh Mansur Ammar.

    (4) "The balm for the heart is in: Companionship with the Saliheen; Tilaawat of the Qur'an abundantly;
    an empty stomach; Sallat during the night (Tahajjud) and Weeping in the late hours of the night as
    a result of Khauf."--Sheikh Ahmad Ibn Aasim al-Antaaki.

    Respected Mufti Saheb

    Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

    I recall my previous sins and feel much remorse over them. Please advise me whether it is in order to recall one’s sins in this manner.

    Summary of Reply:

    Bismihi Ta'ala

    Respected Brother / Sister

    Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

    It is not sufficient to merely remember one’s sins in this manner. Sometimes recalling the previous sins itself very subtly incites the person to commit the same sin again. May Allah Ta’ala save us all. It is therefore necessary to instead visualize the Day of Qiyamah when an account of one’s deeds will be taken in front of all mankind. How utterly disgraced would one be! Every deed committed would be clearly recorded on one’s book of deeds. Moreover, one would be made to personally read out his book of deeds. In this world we feel greatly embarrassed if what we had done secretly is exposed. One should therefore consider how terribly embarrassing it will be to personally read out one’s sins in front of Allah Ta’ala. Hence if anyone wants to be saved from this unimaginable disgrace, it is essential that the sins are washed off from the book of deeds. The tears of regret and remorse in solitude is the water that washes off the sins from the book of deeds. May Allah Ta’ala grant us such tears of regret that washes off our sins from our books of deeds.

    Hence merely recalling one’s sins is not sufficient. One must firmly visualize the Day of Qiyamah to gain the desired effect

    Re: Some Words Of Wisdom...

    Shaykh al-Islam Mawlana Husayn Ahmad Madani (may Allah shower His mercy upon him) advised:

    ‘‘Loving thedinand people ofdinis a great thing. However, to focus on the faults of others whilst not assessing one’s own faults is incorrect.’’

    Malfuzat Hadrat Madani,p.76 (Delhi: Dar al-Isha‘at, July 1998 ed.) by Mawlana Abu ‘l-Hasan Barah Bankwi

    Re: Some Words Of Wisdom...

    Once, Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi alaihi) mentioned that a well-known proverb in the Arabic language is:

    “Live like brothers but deal like strangers”

    Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi alaihi) thereafter explained:

    There are many advantages and benefits through one adopting clarity and system in one’s dealings. Whether one takes a loan, gives a loan or settles an outstanding debt, in all cases one should ensure that one reduces it in writing and keeps a record of the transaction. In this way, one will save oneself from inconvenience or incurring any loss.

    For example, when one hires the services of the washer-man (laundromat), then he should ensure that he asks for a receipt as a proof of the transaction. In doing so, one benefit is that in the event of the clothes being misplaced by the washer-man (laundromat), the washer-man will not be able to deny that you gave your clothes to him, as you have proof of the transaction. Another benefit which one receives is that even if one loses the receipt, since one had taken a receipt from the washer-man, the washer-man will remain constantly aware and conscious that he had given you a receipt for your clothes. Hence, he will ensure that he returns your clothes to you.

    These beautiful teachings of Shari’ah (i.e. recording the transaction, business dealings, etc.) that we have received are all favours and bounties upon us from Allah Ta’ala. Hence, Allah Ta’ala mentions these among His favours in the following verses of the Qur’aan Majeed:

    اقرَأ بِاسمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذى خَلَقَ ﴿١﴾ خَلَقَ الإِنسـٰنَ مِن عَلَقٍ ﴿٢﴾اقرَأ وَرَبُّكَ الأَكرَمُ ﴿٣﴾ الَّذى عَلَّمَ بِالقَلَمِ ﴿٤﴾ عَلَّمَ الإِنسـٰنَ ما لَم يَعلَم ﴿٥﴾

    Recite in the name of your Lord and Cherisher who created (man). He created man from a (mere) clot of congealed blood. Recite and your Lord is most bountiful. He who taught (the use of) the pen. He taught man that which he did not know.

    وَأَنزَلنا مَعَهُمُ الكِتـٰبَ وَالميزانَ لِيَقومَ النّاسُ بِالقِسطِ

    and We sent down with them the Book and the Balance (of determining Right and Wrong), that men may stand forth in justice.

    Re: Some Words Of Wisdom...

    Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:

    One should not pursue those things that are impossible or normally don’t happen. For example, one of us desires to become the king of Saudi Arabia. Although it is possible but it normally does not happen. Such a person will always remain in agony. One should desire those things that are possible and manageable for him.
    Similarly, one should not waste his time in grieving over the injustice and abuse that were done to him in the past. This grief then affects all those that are around the person. Rather one should be happy with what one has, as this happiness brings about stamina and motivation.

    Re: Some Words Of Wisdom...

    Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah(rahimahullaah) stated as occurs in Majmu' al-Fatawa (1/39):

    أعظم ما يكون العبد قدراً وحرمة عند الخلق : إذا لم يحتج إليهم بوجه من الوجوه .كما قيل : احتج إلى من شئت تكن أسيره ، واستغن عمن شئت تكن نظيره ، وأحسن إلى من شئت تكن أميره ، ومتى احتجت إليهم ? ولو في شربة ماء ? نقص قدرك عندهم بقدر حاجتك إليهم ، وهذا من حكمة الله ورحمته ، ليكـون الدين كله لله ، ولا يشرك به شيئاً

    The greatest a servant is in terms of (holding) status and (having) respect from the creation is when he is not needy (dependent) upon them from any angle whatsoever, as it has been said:

    Be in need of whomever you will and you will be his captive. And be free of need from whomever you will and you will be his equal. And be benevolent to whomever you will and you will be his leader.
    And when you stand in need of them - even for a drink of water - your rank (status) will decrease to the extent of your need of them. And this is from the wisdom of Allaah and His mercy, so that the deen (religion) is all (purely) for Allaah, and so that nothing is associated with Him in worship.

    Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

    It is possible that there be good deeds in a person’s life despite him also being involved in sins. However, the noor of the heart cannot co-exist with sins. Where sins are perpetrated, immediately the light of the heart is affected.

    (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 6/113)
