Those who may experience sadness and affliction in Paradise

AllahSayyidi Abd’Al Aziz Al-Dabbagh (rehmatullahi ta ala alayh) presented as proof-God be pleased with him-for the general existence of affliction in Paradise.

When all the inhabitants of Paradise enter Paradise, the light of praise shines on their tongues and that light is commensurate with their knowledge of their Lord in the House of the world. Then when they enter, they acquire further knowledge of their Lord in accordance with what they knew in the House of the world-more than can be reckoned! They feel remorse in the extreme for their inadequacy with regard to their Lord’s rightful claim, and how they served Him and worshipped Him.’ He said-God be pleased with him: ‘Now this is a matter that occurs in the hereafter. And it’s the truth without any doubt and disagreement. ‘

I, al-Lamati, would add that authoritative text has been transmitted for this. The Hafiz al-Suyuti-God the Sublime have mercy on him-says in al-Budur al-safira in the chapter Tahassur ahl al janna ala tark al-dhikr: ‘AI-Tabarani and al-Bayhaqi published with a good chain of transmission from Muadh b. Jabal-God be pleased with him-that the latter reported: “The Apostle of God-God’s blessings and peace be upon him-said: ‘The only affliction the inhabitants of Paradise experience is because of the moment they spent without recollecting God.’ ”

Likewise, Ahmad [Ibn Hanbal], al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Hibban and al Hakim published and classified as authentic (sahih) from Abu Hurayra-God be pleased with him-that he reported: “The Apostle of God-God’s blessings and peace be upon him-said: ‘No group of people sits down somewhere and omits to recollect God and doesn’t invoke blessings on the Prophet-God’s blessings and peace be upon him-without experiencing sorrow on the Day of Resurrection, even if they enter Paradise as a reward. ”

And al-Bayhaqi and Ibn Abi’l-Dunya published from Aisha-God be pleased with her-that she reported: “The Apostle of God-God’s blessings and peace be upon him-said:  ‘If there’s any moment spent by a human being in which he doesn’t recollect God favorably, he’ll be afflicted for it on the Day of Resurrection.””This is what the Hafiz al-Suyuti cites in the above-mentioned chapter.

DISRESPECT THOSE WHO DISRESPECT THE PROPHET Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam

“You will not find folk who believe in Allah and the Last Day loving those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, even though they be their fathers or their brothers or their clan. As for such, He has written faith upon ..their hearts and has strengthened them with a Spirit from Him, and He will bring them into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide.Allah is well pleased with them. and they are well pleased Him. They are Allah’s party. Lo: is it not Allah’s party who are the successful?
(SURAH LVIII: 22)

In this verse it has been clearly said that a Muslim will not have friendly terms with any person, wto is disrespectful to Allah or His Prophet. From this we deduce that a person who maintains friendly relations with such a person would cease to be a Muslim. In order to establish the general and final application of this command the words ‘father, son, brother and relatives” have been specifically mentioned. It means anybody who commands your respect or love cannot be allowed to hold such a position in your heart after showing an attitude of disrespect towards the Prophet, otherwise you will no longer remain a Muslim. It was enough for Allah Almighty to say this much. But see He persuades you to come towards His infinite mercy by telling you that you will be entitled to the following benefits, if you stay away from these insolent people in order to glorify the name of Allah Almighty and His Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam:-

1. Allah will write the Islamic faith in your hearts. It implies that your end will be on a note of divine promise of salvation, because what-ever Allah writes can never be wiped off.

2. Allah will help you through His spirit.

3. He will take you into the Gardens where rivers will be flowing.

4 You will belong to Allah’s party and you will be the true lovers of Allah.

5. You will get what you ask for; you will get millions of times more than what you can imagine.

6. Above all, Allah will be pleased with you.

7. He says: “I shall be well pleased with you and you will be well pleased with Me.” For a man there can’t be any greater blessing than His Allah being pleased with him, but it is indeed the height of generosity to say that “Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Allah.

Oh Muslims! Speak the truth in the name of Allah. Read the rest of this entry »

Mere ” KALIMA ” recitation not sufficient

Allah In the name of the Most Affectionate, the Merciful.

YOUR ALLAH ALMIGHTY SAYS

“Do men imagine that they will be left (at ease) because they say, we
I believe, and will not be tested with affliction?”
(SURAH XXIX: 2)

This verse warns the Muslims that mere recitation of the Kalima is not enough for your salvation. You will be tested. If you are up to the mark, you will be regarded as Muslims.

For testing a thing it is seen whether it does or doesn’t possess those qualities which are essential to its very existence. You have just now seen that the Quran and the Hadith have clearly stated that two things are essential for Islamic faith: Firstly, respect for Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him); Secondly, a higher degree of love for Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) than the entire world. The proper method of this test is that the persons who command your respect and love such as your parents, teachers, your spiritual guides your children, your brothers, your intimate friends, your companions, your mauIvis (professional Muslim priests), your huffaz (the Muslims who have memorised the Holy Quran), your Muftis judges of the Islamic courts), or your preachers etc,.. etc., who-ever they may be. if they are disrespectful to Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). they should lose their respect and love in your hearts at once. You should leave them and throw them out like a fly thrown out of the milk. You should hate them. Don’t take into consideration your relationship and your friendship. Don’t feel impressed by their religious leadership and scholarship. After all, what-ever position they enjoyed was on account of their slavery and loyalty to Prophet Muhammad(Peace be upon him), and if they have acted disrespectfully to Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) they have lost their position. Their religious cloaks and turbans should not impress you. Aren’t there Jews who wear cloaks and turbans? What shall we do with their external appearances, big names and long titles? Are there not many Christian priests and Philosophers whose knowledge of fine arts and other subjects is very vast? If they show any disrespect to the Prophet and you still maintain friendship with them and a serious hatred does not take root in your mind, decide it for yourself whether you have passed the test. Obviously, you haven’t passed it. The Quran and the Hadiths have clearly stated the essential requirements of the Islamic faith. Decide for yourself as to how far away you have gone from this criterion. Oh Muslims! Would any believer, who has love for Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in his heart, respect such insolent people, even if such persons include his spiritual guide or teacher or father? Will a person who loves the Prophet more than the whole world not start hating an insolent man seriously, even If he is his friend or brother or son? For the sake of Allah take pity upon yourself! Listen to Allah’s words. See how He calls you towards His own infinite See: Read the rest of this entry »

An Orphan’s Eid

It was the day of celebration and a day of rejoicing. There was an air of festivity in the streets of Madinah. All the people, both young and old were dressed in their best clothes, especially for this special day of Eid.

As it was time for early morning Eid prayers everyone made their way to an open piece of land on the outskirts of the city. The Prophet Muhammad (sallallaho aliehe wasallam) arrived and led the prayers. After they had finished they all greeted each other and everyone was walking back home.

The children running and playing in excitement, smiling and laughing, without a care in the world. As the Prophet (sallallaho aliehe wasallam) walked back home, he suddenly became aware of a little boy (Zuhair Bin Saghir radi allahu anhu) sitting by himself on the side of the path.

The little boy was crying and looked very sad. The Prophet (sallallaho aliehe wasallam) bent down and patted him on the shoulders and asked

‘why are you crying?’

‘Please leave me alone’ sobbed the little boy.

The boy didn’t even see who was talking to him.

The Prophet (sallallaho aliehe wasallam) ran his fingers through the boy’s hair and very gently and kindly asked him again why he was crying.

This time the boy said, Read the rest of this entry »

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.
