“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

Excellence of Intention

A translated Wa’az by Hadhrat Maulana Idrees Kandhalvi (Rahimullah Ta’ala)

In some of the pious people’s writings it is observed that two things are very strange and unique. One is Tauba (repentance) and the other is Niyyet (Intention). These two are strange and unique because the intention brings into being some thing that was non- existent. For example we did not do any anion but the intention brought that thing into being. The other thing is Tauba that makes a present thing into non-existent. Because a man may have been committing sins for a long time, suppose, for seventy years and may he he has been an atheist and infidel, when ha prostrated once in the court of Allah and sought forgiveness, forthwith all the misdeeds are obliterated. A sincere Tauba made a huge dump of sins into nothing. These two boons are the rapt of Allah Jalla Shanuhu for the Muslims. What a strange boon! Praise of Allah. Praise in multitudes for this Blessing.

Blessed Hands

Hadhrat Maulana Maseehullah (Rahmatullah Alayhi) explains,

 “On the train of Islam Nabi (Sallallâh alayhi wa sallam) is the engine. As long as your silsilah is correct no matter which coach you get on to, be it the third class too it does not matter. The fans are broken, the lights are not working, the seats are torn, tattered and are squeaking incessantly. As long as you are on the train you will reach your destination.

Evil of the Gaze

by Hazrat Haji Muhammed Farouq Sahib (Nawarallahu Markadahu)

There are some who suffer from another misconception. Shaytaan beguiles them into thinking that there is no harm in admiring a beautiful human form or shape (such as a woman) They compare it to admiring a beautifully blooming bud, fine clothes and aesthetic architecture. This is the height of deception! The admiration of these entities is totally different to the admiration lavished on a beautiful woman. The difference has been explained in a brief and beautiful example by Abbaji (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah, may Allah shower mercy upon him over and over again!) in the following words,

“Look at a beautifully appetizing guava, look at some delectable grapes and then look at a thin skinned lemon. Is there any difference or not? Cut the guava. Will the mouth water? Thereafter cut the lemon, squeeze it and see what happens. The mouths of people witnessing this will actually begin to water.

Lal Masjid Controversy

If you don’t know what the Lal Masjid Controversy is about, then better inform yourself. But actually there is hidden my point: don’t let yourself get confused by the likes of CNN or BBC, who will use this perfect chance for anti-Islam/Mullah propaganda.

Reading Qur’an with Attention

It is a rule that if someone ask us to read Quran, we read with utmost care, correctness, and ensure that it is read beautifully. Now let’s do like this, when we intent to read Qur’an then first think in our heart that Allah (SWT) is asking

”Read Quran, I Want To Listen How You Read”

and think that Allah (SWT) is fully attentive. Think that, when we read with care while a person is listening then we must take up most care when Allah (SWT) has ordered. Now read after thinking these points. And while reading keep thinking these point. When attention is lost in the reading or you start to read wrongly then, stop for sometime, to rethink the same.

Inshallah, with these one can read Quran carefully and correctly and with attention. Once done for some time, one can easily keep attention while reading.

Defending the “Tablighi Jama’at”

I really dislike calling it the “Tablighi Jama’at”, simply because there does exist no sect of that name. It’s the blessed work and responsibilty of every single Muslim. That’s why I’ve until now avoided to post entries or articles making this effort business of a special group.

But it’s none the less important to refuse the false accusations spread by ignorant brother and sisters, so I just found this excellent article defending the means of this effort and the book used Faza’il-e-A’maal.

A brief introduction

Tableegh literally means ‘to convey’. Contextually, it refers to conveying the message of Islam. This is the sunnah of all the prophets. The most important rule of tableegh is hikmah. Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Quran:

ادع إلى سبيل ربك بالحكمة والموعظة الحسنة
Invite (people) to the way of your lord with wisdom and good counsel.

(Verse: 16:125)

Whosoever does tableegh must adopt hikmah. It is only then, that people will understand and accept.

List of minor Signs

First off all, let me quote from Brother Jalaal ibn Saeed’s (may Allah reward him) very important reminder at a Janazah,

“Yaum ul-Qiyamah is going to happen on a Jumu’ah. How often do Muslims come to the Jumu’ah knowing, today might be the day of Judgment?”

The following has been written & compiled by Hadhrat Maulana Mufti Muhammad Rafi’ Uthmani Sahab (may Allah Ta’ala preserve Hadhrat).
