A Blind Heart

HADHRAT WAHAB BIN Munabbah (rahmatullah alayh) said: “A man who searches for this world (its wealth and for fame) with deeds of the Aakhirah, Allah Ta’ala makes his heart blind. His name is written in the record of the inmates of Jahannum.”

The pursuit of the Knowledge of the Deen and Ibaadat are for the acquisition of the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala and the rewards of Jannat. Those who make the Knowledge of the Deen their means for obtaining worldly benefit and for attainment of nafsaani desires are the most despicable specimens of humanity according to the Hadith.

The Peril of Khiyaanat

Hadhrat Wahab Bin Munabbah (rahmatullah alayh) narrated the following episode which should be thought-provoking for men of the Deen who have failed to understand the meaning and gravity of khiyaanat.

There was a young man in the Ummat of Bani Israaeel of bygone times. After having led a life of sin and transgression he resolved to repent. After repentance he devoted his entire life to ibaadat and thikr. Ibaadat was his sole occupation for the rest of the 70 years which he lived after his repentance.

Ulama of the World

Hadhrat Ibraaheem Bin Uqbah (rahmatullah alayh) said: “The man who will regret most on the Day of Qiyaamah will be an Aalim who had aspired for a high position with his knowledge.”

The Knowledge of the Aalim is for safeguarding the Shariah and for Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar (Commanding righteousness and prohibiting evil). The purpose of Knowledge is not the acquisition of worldly fame, rank and monetary gain. These evils are the salient features and motives of the learned men, the so-called scholars, of this age.

Punishment for Abstaining from Thikrullah

A MAN presented to Hadhrat Junaid Baghdaadi (rahmatullah alayh) a wild bird which he had caught in a net. The bird remained in the cage by Hadhrat Junaid for a very long time. One day Hadhrat Junaid opened the cage and the bird flew way. Someone enquired from him the reason for having released the bird. Hadhrat Junaid (rahmatullah alayh) explained:

Friends & Friendship

Hadhratwala (rah) narrated; There was a youngster - like one of today's youngsters - who had become friendly with another youth. The youngster's elderly father noticed his coming home late at nights and enquired, "One night, two nights, three nights, and now every night you are coming home very late. What is your story?" The youngster replied, "I go to visit a friend of mine. Sitting and talking with him, it tends to get a bit late."

Company of Bad People

Sheikh Saadi says that if any one associates with bad people, although their nature may not infect him, he will be supposed to follow their ways to such an extent that if he goes to a tavern to say his prayers, it will be supposed that he is going there for drinking wine.

He adds:

"When you have selected an ignorant person as your companion,
You have branded yourself with the mark of
ignorance
Do not associate with an ignorant man,
For if you are learned in such company you will
become an ass in course of time;
And if you are not learned you will become a
greater fool."

The Poet's Lament

Protect him whose father is dead; remove the dust from his rainment, and injure him not. Thou knowest not how hard is his condition; no foliage is there on a root/ess tree. Give not a kiss to a child of thine own in the sight of a helpless orphan. If the latter weep, who will assuage his grief? If he be angered, who will bear his burden? See that he weeps not, for the throne of Allah trembles at the orphan's lament. With pity, wipe the tears from his eyes and the dust from his face. If the protecting shadow of his father's care be gone, cherish him beneath the shadow of thy care.

Severity of the Teacher

Sheikh Saadi (R.A.) relates that once in the course of his travels he went to the Maghrib country. There in a mosque he saw a school master who was sour faced, of uncouth speech, ill humoured, and of an irritating and niggardly nature. He behaved tyrannically with his pupils. He would strike them mercilessly, and would put their legs into the stocks. His behaviour became notorious and he was expelled from the school.

Isabella

Isabella (based on a true story) by Muhammad Saeed Dehlvi A Unique book of its kind for Comparative study of Islam and Christianity.

A rewritten and expanded telling of M. Saeed Dehlvi’s classic tale of a young girl who finds Islam- and danger – amidst the harrowing religious conflicts of medieval Muslim Spain.

Appearance of the Hallowed One

The birth of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was an event of the greatest magnitude in human history. "Allama Shibil Nu'mani of India (d. Nov 1914 C.E.) has described it in poetic prose that seems to flow from the very depths of a devoted soul. To do justice to the author I venture to render it into English that follows the original as closely and as faithfully as possible.... Translator.
