Islams Reformers

The bigotry of the religion reformers or bigots of science who surfaced lately to blame all previous scholars, basic fundamental beliefs or practices

Whenever you see a

Whenever you see a Muslim you should think: “My attaining happiness may depend on pleasing his heart and wooing him into invoking a blessing on me.” You should look on yourself as a slave of those people who have rights on you. It was stated in a hadîth-i-sherîf, “A person who does (the following) three things is a perfect Believer: A person who serves his wife, keeps company with poor people and eats with his servant is a perfect Believer. These are the distinguishing features of a Believer which Allâhu ta’âlâ declares in the Qur’ân al-kerîm.” You should always read about the behaviours of the Salaf as-sâlihîn and visit the gharîb (lonely, destitute) and poor people. You should never backbite or gossip about anybody, and should prevent anyone who attempts to do so. You should not miss any occasion that offers an opportunity to perform amr-i-ma’rûf and nahy-i-munker, that is, to give religious advice to people. You should help the poor and mujâhids (people who try to serve Islam) with your property. You should perform pious and charitable deeds. You should avoid committing sins. When Muhammad bin Alyân was asked about the signs indicating that Allâhu ta’âlâ loves a born slave of his, he answered, “His feeling pleasure in worships and abstaining from sins.” It was stated in a hadîth-i-sherîf, “He who hates sins and enjoys worships is a true Believer.” You should not be stingy for fear of poverty. The two hundred and sixty-eighth âyat of Baqara sûra purports, “The devil will threaten you with poverty and entice you into committing debauchery.” A poor person should not feel sad about his poverty, so that Allâhu ta’âlâ might as well have blessed him with a fortune. The real fortune is to enjoy the luxury of the Hereafter. Worldly distresses will cause one to be comfortable in the Hereafter. It was stated in a hadîth-i-sherîf, “A person who has a crowded family but a low income and yet who performs his prayers of namâz properly according to its accepted standards and does not backbite other Muslims, will be kept with me at the place of gathering on the Rising Day.” It was stated in another hadîth-i-sherîf, “How lucky for those who die on their way to (perform) hajj and those who perform ghazâ (holy war)! Also, a person who has a crowded family but a low income and yet who does not complain about this situation but enters his home with joy and leaves happily, is among the hadjis and ghâzîs.” – 310 –

A distich: If Haqq ta’âlâ wishes, He makes everything easy; Creating its causes, He gives it in a jiffy. You should serve poor people and all your brothers in Islam. Ja’fer Huldî, one of the companions of Junayd-i-Baghdâdî, passed away in 348 H. He states, “Our superiors worked and earned in order to help their brothers in Islam, not for their own nafses.” Muhammad Abû Abdullah bin Hafîf passed away in 371 H. He related, “One day I had a brother in Islam of mine as a guest in my home. (During his stay) he had a stomach disorder. With a container (full of water) and a basin, I served him until morning. Sometime I fell asleep (against my will). (When I woke up), he said, ‘Were you asleep? My Allah curse you!’ ” The people listening to him asked, “How did your heart feel when he cursed?” He said, “I was as happy as if he had said, ‘May Allah have mercy on you!’ ” Abû ’Umar Zujjâjî states, “If a person implies (to have attained) a high grade which he has not actually attained, his words will arouse fitna and prevent him from ever attaining that grade.” Try to observe the rules of adab in the sohbat [presence] of your murshid! It is only people with adab that will benefit from him. “Adab is the essence of tarîqat.” A person without adab cannot attain Allâhu ta’âlâ’s love. My blessed father, i.e. Imâm-i- Rabbânî, wrote detailedly on the âdâb of this path. In short, you should leave aside existence, become like earth, and run for the service and sohbat of those great people. Otherwise, there is no reason for being anxious to attend the sohbat of the Awliyâ. It may, let alone being useful, give harm. Abû Bakr Ahmad bin Sa’dân states, “A person who wishes to attend the sohbat of the Sôfiyya-i-aliyya should not think of himself, his heart or his property. If he thinks about these things, he will not attain his goal. Do not loiter on your way towards Allâhu ta’âlâ’s ma’rifat [love]! Abû Bakr as-Siddîq ‘radiy-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anh’ stated, “Ma’rifat of Allâhu ta’âlâ [to know him] means to realize that He cannot be known. Imâm-i-a’zam Abû Hanîfa’s asseveration, “I have known Thee,” means, “I have realized very well that Thou couldst not be known.” Abû Bakr-i-Tamstânî states, “Tasawwuf means to suffer troubles. There cannot be tasawwuf in ease and comfort.” This means to say that the lover should always struggle – 311 –
