Cricket World Cup

Taken from Masjid Darul Ehsan

Its that time again when people are glued to their transistors and T.V. screens, carefully following the cricket World Cup.

Has it ever occurred to you that the game of cricket can be compared to our lives in this world. Let me tell you why.

In the game of cricket the batsmen will do his utmost to protect his wicket from the ball delivered by the bowler. In a similar manner man, in the game of life, must do his utmost to protect his Imaan, from the attack of bowler Shaytaan, who has promised Allah that he will concentrate his efforts in bow1ing down your Imaan. The Quran in Surah ‘Araaf (Surah 7 Verse 17) bears testimony to this “Then I will approach them (mankind) from before them and from behind them, from their right and from their left”

Reality of Taqwa

Mufti Afzal Hoosen Elias (damat baraktuhum) writes, “Although commonly translated as ‘fear for Allah’ or ‘piety’, the word Taqwa refers to such consciousness of Allah or such a piety that drives a person to carry out all Allah’s commands and to stay away from everything that Allah has prohibited”.

Below you find an excerpt from a great discourse of Hadhrat Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahab (damat baraktuhum) known as Hiyat-e-Taqwah – compiled by Muhammad Ishrat Jamil Mir and translated by Moulana Ebrahim Muhammad. May Allah reward them all three.

“I take an oath by the nafs and the One that corrected it.”
“He inspired the nafs with evil and piety.”

The Secret of Mentioning Sin First
The fact that Allah took an oath of the nafs is proof that He wants to explain something very important. I was travelling from Lahore to Karachi by train with a very great scholar. On the way, he recited this verse in Fajr Salâh. During salâh the thought occurred to me why Allah mentioned sin first. I asked the scholar who smiled and told me to explain.

Reality of Zuhd (Asceticism)

This below is a discourses of Maseehul Ummat Hadhrat Maulana Maseehullah Khan Sahab (Rahimullah Ta’ala) translated into English by Al-Islaah Publications. Hadhrat-ji gives a great insight on what is not against the concept of abstinence from worldly pleasures (Zuhd).

Clothes: Let me just stop a while to point out that owning more than one set of clothes is not against the concept of asceticism (zuhd) – you may possess two, four, eight or ten sets of clothes. If Allah Ta’ala has blessed you with wealth you may sew for yourself ten sets of clothes even and it would not be against the concept of zuhd (asceticism). The proviso being that you do not put yourself in debt. It must also be pointed out that to live in ease and comfort at the cost of causing suffering to your wife and children is definitely against the concept of zuhd and wilayet. There is no question that this latter situation is one of asceticism or saintliness.

Discussions & Debates

Below yo’ll find two Malfoozats of Hakeemul Ummat Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahimullah Ta’ala) compiled by the Majlisul Ulama of South Africa regarding the harm and evilness of (needless) discussions and debates on the path of sulook.

a.) One should not ask one’s Shaikh (one’s Spiritual Guide) such Fiqhi Masa- il (rules of Fiqh) which entail debate and discussion. Debate and objection are highly detrimental in this Path of Tasawwuf.

Tafsir: Surah Al-An’am (Ayat 162)

It’s again time to ponder over the meaning of Allah Ta’ala’s kalam. Qur’an has been sent as a guidance. But how can it guide us the right path, if we don’t care about the meaning? That’s why I’ll keep posting Tafseer from time to time again. This below is again taken from “Ma’ariful Qur’an” (Mufti Muhammad Shafee Sahab Rahimullah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala).

“Say, ‘My prayer, my offering, my life and my death are for Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.'” (6:162)
