The Importance and Benefits of Zakah in Islam.

Madinah Munawwara Zakah is one of the five pillars of Islam. It has been mentioned, along with daily Prayers (Salaah), seventy times in the Qur’an. Allah’s Word commanding “…and establlsh regular Salaah and give regular Zakah” are referred to in many parts of the Qur’an. From this we can conclude that after Salaah, Zakah is the most important act in Islam.

The following are some verses from the Holy Qur’an and some Ahadith showing the importance and benefits of Zakah.

[Baqarah 2:43] And keep the (obligatory) prayer established, and pay the charity, and bow your heads with those who bow (in prayer).

[Baqarah 2:261] The example of those who spend their wealth in Allah’s way is similar to that of a grain which has sprouted seven stalks and in each stalk are a hundred grains; and Allah may increase it still more than this, for whomever He wills; and Allah is Most Capable, All Knowing.

What is the meaning of Mujahidah(Spiritual Struggle)? Al Malfuz Al Sharif Vol 1

Madina Al Munawwarah Al Malfuz Al Sharif Vol 1 – Anecdotes of AlaHadrat, Imam Ahmad Rida Khan عليه الرحمة (Must Read)

Question: What is the meaning of Mujahidah(Spiritual Struggle)?

Answer: The entire concept of Mujahidah is enclosed in this ayah:

And those who tremble with fear in the presence of their lord and abstain from the desires of Nafs, Verily, their abode is Jannah. – (Surah An-Naziyat79, Verse 40,41)

This is actually known as Jihad al-Akbar (the great struggle in spiritualism). It is stated in the Hadith Sharif that after returning victoriously from Jihad with the Kuffar at Badr, the Holy Prophet of Allah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم stated:

Now we return from the minor battle to the major battle. – (Sharh Zurqani, Vol.1, p.324)

Abdal Qadir Al Jilani radi Allahu anhuSayings, Sufi Quotes, Islamic Quotes by Shaykh Abdal Qadir Al-Jilani radi Allahu anhu (Malfuzat Sharif)

There is nothing worth talking about, until you have been hatched out of the egg of your wordly existence [wujud] and embraced by the wing of the sacred law [shariah].

When the heart puts the Quran and the Sunnah into practice, it draws near to Allah exalted is He.

Make praying for forgiveness [istighfar] the regular practice of your tongue, grateful acknowledgment [ [itiraf] the regular practice of your heart, and quiet calm [sukun] the regular practice of your innermost being [sirr].

Let others eat their fill, while you go hungry.
Let others enjoy respect, while you remain humble.
Let others become rich, while you remain poor.

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.

Statements on Death by the Pious Predecessors – Sharhus Sudoor

Muslim Grave1. Hazrat Abu Dardah (Radi Allahu anhu) reported, ‘(Soon) After (listening to) an eloquent piece of advice (people) quickly become oblivious. Death is sufficient as advice. Time is sufficient to cause separation. Today we are in our homes and tomorrow we shall be in our graves.’

2. Hazrat Raja’ bin Hayaat (Radi Allahu anhu) reported, ‘One who remembers death frequently will forget jealousy and (worldly) pleasures.’

_________________________________________________________

1. This Hadith Shareef clearly explains that if we have love for our wealth, then our hearts will be attached to it. It is for this reason that the mystics have said, Keep your wealth in your hands and not in your heart.

3. Tabrani reports from Hazrat Tariq Mahaaribi (Radi Allahu anhu) that he said that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu ta ala alayhi wa sallam) told him, ‘Prepare for death before death comes (to you).’

4. Hazrat Awn bin Abdullah (Radi Allahu anhu) says, ‘One who really knows about death, never includes the next day in his life because many people who are alive in the beginning of the day, do not complete the day. Also many people who expect to see tomorrow, never tend to realise this expectation, and if you had to observe death and its speed, then your expectations (aspirations) and arrogance would fade away.’

5. Hazrat Abu Haazim (Radi Allahu anhu) says, ‘Divorce yourself from that which causes you to look critically at death, so that it may not be the cause of torment for you after your death.’

6.
Hazrat Umar bin Abdul Aziz (Radi Allahu anhu) reported, ‘When death becomes close to a person’s heart, he starts to think of his wealth as being excessive.’

7. Hazrat Raja’ bin Nuh (Radi Allahu anhu) reports that Umar bin Abdul Aziz (Radi Allahu anhu) wrote to his family saying, ‘If you are conscious of (your) death night and day, then every ending thing will seem worthless to you and you will love everything which will remain.’

8. Hazrat Majmi’ Tameemi (Radi Allahu anhu) reported, ‘The remembrance of death is the basis to wealth and contentment.’

9. Samayt (Radi Allahu anhu) reported, ‘One who has made death his ideal (goal), will not care about abundance, or shortage, or worldly things.’

ATTRIBUTES OF SUFIS INNER AND OUTER SELF

Sufi Art   Among the attributes of the Sufis were their refrainment from all hypocrisy. In simple terms, their inner selves were in complete concordance with their outer self.

It is said that Sayyiduna Omar bin Abdul Aziz (radi Allahu anhu) asked Sayyiduna Khidr (alaihis salaam) to give him some advise when they both found themselves in Medina Shareef, Sayyiduna Khidr (alaihis assalaam) replied, “O Omar! Save yourself from this state, wherein, outwardly you are the friend of Allah, yet, inwardly you are His enemy. Those whose inner self is not in concordance with their outer self are hypocrites and for them will be extreme punishment”.

Sayyiduna Abdul Wahid bin Yaazid (radi Allahu anhu) has expressed, “Sayyiduna Hasan Basri (radi Allahu anhu) has reached a lofty position in Tassawaf simply because whenever he advised any person to perform any action he firstly did so himself. Whenever he prohibited a person, he always firstly refrained himself. I have therefore, never seen a person whose inner self is precisely as his outer self”.

Sayyiduna Mu’awwiya bin Qurra (radi Allahu anhu) has stated, “Whenever I heard a person being praised, I had always found him less then his tribute, except for Sayyiduna Wakee’ah (radi Allahu anhu). I have always found him to be even more superior then his acclaim”.

Sayyiduna Abdullah Antaaki (radi Allahu anhu) states, “To refrain from internal sins is the most superior of acts”. When he was asked the reasons, he replied, “Simply because he who refrains from internal sins will have a better chance of refraining from external sins. Therefore, he whose internal self is better then his external self, this indeed is the Mercy of Allah. While he whose both selves are equal, this indeed is equality. He on the other hand he whose external self is better then his internal self, he indeed is an oppressor”.

It is because of this that the great Sufis hide their worship. They state that Read the rest of this entry »

SUFIS AND SINCERITY

Bismillahir Rehmanir Rahim    Among the ethics and manners of the famous Sufis, sincerity held a mighty and lofty position. Every action of theirs portrayed absolute sincerity. The thought of insincerity never crossed their minds. They clearly understood that action could only be considered noble, if it contained sincerity. Their aim was not to become famously known as Sufis, neither did they consider worldly respect as the all important factor. Their aim was merely to achieve the Pleasure of Allah. The world in front of them held no real value. They understood that if a person spent day and night in the Ibaadat of Allah, yet, he was devoid of sincerity, he would achieve nothing from his worship.

It is recorded that when the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wa sallam) sent Sayyiduna Ma’az (radi Allahu anhu) to Yemen, he advised him, “O Ma’az create sincerity in your belief. In this way (even if you perform little deeds) it will be enough for you”.

The incident of Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu), clearly portrays the importance of sincerity. Once while he was in battle, he had captured an enemy and was about to kill him when the enemy spat on his blessed face. Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu) immediately released him. When he was asked the reason, he replied, “I chose the sword strictly for the Pleasure of Allah. I have been delegated to see that His commands are obeyed. I do not obey my Nafs (carnal desires). I am the Lion of Allah, I am not the lion of my desires. When you spat on me, my desire immediately entered this battle and sincerity began to depart. It is because of this that I have spared you, for my action was not based on sincerity”. When the enemy heard this amazing reply, he instantly repented and became a Muslim.

Sayyiduna Wahab Mambeh (radi Allahu anhu) states, “He who desires the world with the actions of the Hereafter, Allah will indeed alter his heart. His name will then be included among those who are to enter Hell”.

It is recorded that certain Sufis actually re-performed 30 years of Salaah, simply because they felt that they had not shown enough sincerity. Read the rest of this entry »
