SEARCHING FOR A MURSHID

Ghaus-ul A’zam (radi Allahu anhu) says: “If a person is unable to differentiate between a true and false Murshid, he should read 2 Rakaats Nafil for achieving recognition of Allah at Tahajjud time. Then he should ask Allah to inform him of those pious people who will be able to guide him on the Right Path. He should beseech Allah to show him the person who will intoxicate him with Allah’s love and adorn the eyes of his heart with the light of Allah’s closeness and inform him of unseen happenings that he personally witnessed”. (Insha-Allah by doing so, one will receive the answer)(Al-Fath-ur Rabbani, pg.146)

If someone is unable to do this then he should seek the advise of a well versed Sunni Aalim. At times, people take advice from the ignorant and become Mureeds of Shaitaan. May Allah Ta’ala protect us all. Aameen.

Abu Bakr al-Kattani Radi Allahu anhu

Abu Bakr Mohammad ibn ‘Ali ibn Ja’far al- Kattani radi allahu anhu, a native of Baghdad, belonged to the circle of al-Jonaid radi allahu anhu. He proceeded to Mecca on the pilgrimage, and took up residence there until his death in 322 (934).

One day a luminous elder majestically wrapped in a cloak entered by the Gate of the Banu Shaiba and went up to Kattani radi allahu anhu, who was standing with head bowed.

“Why,” he asked after the exchange of greetings, “do you not go to the Station of  Abraham Alayhi Sallam? A great teacher has come and is relating noble traditions. Come and listen to him.”

“On whose authority is he relating, sir?” Kattani radi allahu anhu asked.

“On the authority of Abd Allah ibn Ma’mar radi allahu anhu, from Zohri, from Abu Horaira radi allahu anhu, from the Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam,” the elder replied.

“Master, you have produced a long chain of authorities,” Kattani radi allahu anhu remarked. “Whatever they are reporting there by authoritative chain of transmission, we are hearing here without any chain.”

“From whom are you hearing?” asked the elder.

“My heart reported to me direct from my Lord . . .” said Kattani radi allahu anhu.

“Do you have any proof of your assertion?” demanded the elder.

“My proof,” replied Kattani radi allahu anhu, “is that my heart is telling me that you are Khezr Alayhi sallam.”

“Till then,” Khezr Alayhi Sallam remarked, “I had always thought that there was no friend of ALLAH Azzawajal whom I did not know. That was until I saw Abu Bakr-e Kattani radi allahu anhu. I did not know him, but he knew me. Then I realized that ALLAH Azzawajal has friends who know me but whom I do not know.”

Book of Love

Amr ibn ‘Othman radi allahu anhu on Love

Amr ibn ‘Othman radi allahu anhu stated the following in his Book of Love.

Almighty ALLAH Azzawajal created the hearts seven thousand years before the souls, and He kept them in the Garden of Intimacy. He created the Secrets seven thousand years before the hearts, and kept them in the Degree of Union.

Every day God caused the souls to receive three hundred and sixty glances of Grace and to hear three hundred and sixty words of Love. Every day He manifested to the hearts three hundred and sixty delights of Intimacy. Every day He revealed Beauty three hundred
and sixty times to the Secrets.

So they beheld every thing in the world of being, and saw none more precious than themselves. A vainglory and conceit manifested amongst them.

ALLAH Azzawajal therefore put them to the trial. He imprisoned the Secret in the soul. He confined the soul in the heart. He detained the heart in the body. Then He compounded
in them reason.

ALLAH Azzawajal sent the Prophets Alaihi Sallam with commandments. Then every one of them set about searching for his proper station. God commanded them to pray. So the body went into prayer; the heart attained Love; the soul achieved Propinquity; the Secret was at rest in Union.

LOVE FOR FAMILY

Sayyiduna Al-Aswad (radi Allahu anhu) reported: I asked Sayyidah Ayesha (radi Allahu anha) what the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) used to do at home? She said: He used to keep himself busy serving his family and when it was time for the prayers, he would get up for prayers. (Bukhari)

The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: There is no greater charity than a man’s spending his money for the members of his own family. He further said: Gift and charity to the poor kinsmen bring double rewards than that to strangers. And he said: He who joins (blood-tie) is not a perfect man, but it is he who joins blood-tie when it has been torn asunder. The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: No mercy descends upon the person among whom there is one who disregards the ties of blood.

Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) had a great love and affection for his own children. Whenever he took a journey or returned from it, he used to see his beloved daughter Sayyidah Fatima (radi Allahu anha). Whenever she came to him, he used to stand up and make her sit by his side and kiss her on forehead.

Sayyiduna Anas (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Holy Prophet of Islam (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) used to go everyday on foot to Awali, a place 3 to 4 miles off from the town of Madina to see his son Sayyiduna Ibra’heem (alaihis salaam) who was being brought up there at that time. He used to take him in his lap and kiss him.

Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was the most ideal husband and pleasant companion. His treatment with his wives is the most exemplary. As a husband of an old wife, as a husband of a young wife, as a husband of a widowed wife, as a husband of many wives, as a husband of a wife living in foreign land or in foreign faith, the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was a true ideal and a model for mankind. In the whole period of his married life, he did neither administer a single rebuke to his wives, nor give a beating even with a slight a thing as a tooth-stick. His treatment with them was the most cordial. He regarded them as co-partners in happiness as well as in distress, but never the idea crossed the threshold of his mind that they were for his sexual luxury. He used to say: The best of the commodities of the world is a virtuous wife. And he said: The best of you are those who are the best of you to their wives. He further said: Prayer, perfume and wife have been made a solace to my eyes. Everything with which a man plays is unlawful except his sporting with his wife.

TREATMENT OF PARENTS

There are numerous injunctions in the Holy Quraan regarding the special treatment towards one’s parents. Some of these are as follows:

  • Almighty Allah  says: And (remember) when We made a covenant with the Children of Israel (saying): Worship none save Allah (only); and be good to parents and to kindred and to orphans and the needy, and speak kindly to mankind; and establish worship and pay the poor-due. Then, after that, you slid back, save a few of you, being averse. (2:83)
  • Almighty Allah observes: They ask you (O Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)) what they shall spend. Say: that which you spend for good (must go) to parents and near kindred and orphans and the needy and the wayfarer. And whatsoever good you do, Lo! Allah is aware of it. (2:215)
  • Almighty Allah says: And serve Allah. Ascribe no thing as partner unto Him. (Show) kindness unto parents, and unto near kindred, and orphans, and the needy, and unto the neighbour who is of kin (unto you) and the neighbour who is not of kin, and the fellow-traveller and the wayfarer and (the slaves) whom your right hands possess. Lo! Allah loves not such who are proud and boastful. (4:36)
  • Almighty Allah commands: Say: Come, I will recite unto you that which your Lord has made a sacred duty for you: that you ascribe no thing as partner unto Him and that you do good to parents,  (6:151)
  • Almighty Allah says: Your Lord has decreed that you worship none besides Him, and (that you show) kindness to parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age with you, say not Fie unto them nor repulse them, but speak unto them a gracious word. And lower unto them the wing of submission through mercy, and say: My Lord! Have mercy on them both as they did care for me when I was little. (17:23-24)
  • Almighty Allah says: We have enjoined on man kindness to parents; but if they strive to make thee join with Me that of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not. Unto Me is your return and I shall tell you what you used to do. (29:8)
  • Almighty Allah says: And We have enjoined upon man concerning his parents  His mother bears him in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years  Give thanks to Me and to your parents. Unto Me is the journeying. (31:14)
  • Almighty Allah(Azzawajal) says: And We have commanded unto man kindness toward parents. His mother bears him with reluctance, and brings him forth with reluctance, and the bearing of him and the weaning of him is thirty months, till, when he attains full strength and reaches forty years, he says: My Lord! Arouse me that I may give thanks for the favour wherewith You have favoured my parents, and me and that I may do right acceptable unto You. And be gracious unto me in the matter of my seed. Lo! I have turned to You repentant, and lo! I am of those who surrender (to You). (46: 15)

Sayyiduna Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu) reported: I asked Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) which deed Allah loves most? He replied, To offer prayers at their early stated times. Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu) asked, What is the next in goodness? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, To be good and dutiful to ones parents. Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu) asked, What is the next in goodness? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, To participate in Jihad for Allah’s cause. Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu) added, The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) narrated to me these three things, and if I had asked more, he would have told me more. (Bukhari)

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (radi Allahu anhu) reported that a man asked the Beloved Habeeb (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam): O Allah’s Apostle (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)! Who is more entitled to be treated with the best of companionship by me? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Your mother. The man said: Who is next? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Your mother. The man further said: Who is next? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Your mother. The man asked for the fourth time: Who is next? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Your father. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Islam has given parents that much importance that one should not go for Jihad without the permission of one’s parents. Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Omar (radi Allahu anhuma) reported: A man said to Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), Shall I participate in Jihad? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, Are your parents living? The man said, Yes. The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, Do Jihad for their benefit. (Bukhari) The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) enjoined on him to serve his parents and do his best to satisfy their needs, for this will be a substitute for fighting in Almighty Allah cause.

Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn-e-Omar (radi Allahu anhuma) reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: The most grateful is he who treats well the friends of his father in his absence. (Muslim)

Sayyidah Asma Bint Abu-Bakr (radi Allahu anha) reported: My mother, who was pagan, came with her father during the period of peace pact between the Muslims and the Quraish infidels. I went to seek the advice of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) saying, My mother has arrived and she is hoping for my favour. The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, Yes, be good to your mother. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Sayyiduna Mughirah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Allah has forbidden the following things for you: To disobey your mothers, to bury the female child alive, to refuse the repayment to your creditors. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn-e-Amr (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Glorious Nabi of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: It is one of the greatest sins that a man should curse his parents. The people asked: O Allah’s Apostle (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)! How can a man curse his own parents? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: When a man abuses the father of another man and the latter abuse the father of the former and abuses his mother. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Sayyiduna Abdullah Bin Amr (radi Allahu anhu) reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: The pleasure of Allah lies in the pleasure of father, and the displeasure of Allah is in the displeasure of father. (Tirmidi)

Sayyiduna Abu Umaamah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that a companion asked the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam): O Allah’s Apostle (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)! What are the rights of parents to their sons? The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Both are like Heaven and Hell for you. (Ibn-e-Majah) This means the pleasure of parents would bring the reward of the Heaven and their displeasure will result into the torment of Hell.

Sayyiduna Mu’awiyah Bin Jahemah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that his father called on the Holy Prophet of Islam (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and said: O Allah’s Apostle (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)! I wish to go for Jihad and I have come to you to take your advice�. The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked: Do you have a mother? He said: Yes. The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Make her service obligatory for yourself as the Heaven is by the side of her feet. (Nisaai)

Sayyiduna Mughirah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Beloved Habeeb (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Allah(Azzawajal) has forbidden you

  1. to be undutiful to your mothers,
  2. to withhold what you should give, or
  3. demand what you do not deserve, and
  4. to bury your daughters alive.

Allah(Azzawajal) has disliked that

  1. you talk too much about others,

  2. ask too many questions in religion, or

  3. waste your property. (Bukhari)
