Good Marital Relationship

Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani (damat barkatuhum) writes:

Mutual respect, love, understanding, courtesy and a mutual consideration of each other’s needs plus mutual tolerance are not only a must for marital and familial bliss but also very meritorious. The exalted and eternally blessed Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has said that, “The most perfect faith have those Muslims who have better morals, and the best of these are those who are best for their women.” (Tirmidhi)

Beautiful Sunnats of the Beloved Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

Beautiful Sunnats of the Beloved Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)Arifbillah Hadhrat Aqdas Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahib (damat barkatuhum) is known for illuminating hundreds – if not even thousands – of hearts with the love of Sayydina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).

According to Hadhratwala the heart gets more lightend than the moon and sun through bringing the life of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in one’s own. Another great teaching of Hadhratwala: A real Ashiq-e-Rasul celebrates Milad with every breath he takes through practicing upon the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).

This book is a revised edition by Khanqah Imdadia Ashrafia of the previous translation of the book “Sunnats of our beloved Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)”, which is a completion by Hadhratwala by some daily Sunnan and etiquettes to learn and implicate in one’s life.

Don’t Turn Masjids Into Museums

This below is a great article by Hadhrat Maulana Aslam Shaikhpuri (damat barkatuhum)from about his visit of the Shah Faisal Masjid in Islamabad. The declining respect of Islamic institutions in the heart of not only Pakistani Muslims but the majority of the Ummah is just one aspect of many that makes us realize and admit the pitiful state of the Ummah today.

“I happened to visit the capital city a couple of days ago. I found an opportunity to go to the Shah Faisal Masjid. This masque is indeed a masterpiece of art and architecture. Before I come to the main point of this column, I would like to narrate a little bit about the structure and history of this mosque for your reading pleasure.

What is Slavery?

… Slavery [bandagi] is the name of acting upon the Ahkamat elicited from Qur’an al-Karim and Ahadith-e-Nabwi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), on the occassion of Yaum al-Arafat Allah Ta’ala revealed this verse:

الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الإِسْلاَمَ دِينًا
“Today, I have perfected your religion for you, and have completed My blessing upon you, and chosen Islam as Deen for you.” (5:3)

‘Ilm Is A Noor

Mulhiq al-Asaghir bi’l-Akabir Hadhrat Hakim al-Ummah Mujaddid al-Millah Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahimullah) said,

‘Ilm [Knowledge] is that which vanishes from committing sins. And is not obtained by a sinner. If solely word-ism was the name of ‘Ilm, it would come together with sin, too – but even with Kufr [Disbelief]. Otherwise in Beirut and Germany Christians are instructors of Arabic, their memory is very strong and their mind is very fast. So, one comes to know that ‘Ilm is not the name of that. The reality of real ‘Ilm is Noor [Light], regarding which it is said in the Qur’an, قَدْ جَاءكُم مِّنَ اللّهِ نُورٌ وَكِتَابٌ مُّبِينٌ [“There has come to you from Allah a Light and clear Book.” – 5:15]. And this has been given a Ruh [Soul] as well, وَأَيَّدَهُم بِرُوحٍ [“…and has helped them with a Spirit from Him.” – 58:22]. Enough, in reality exactly this is ‘Ilm.

Imam Abu Hanifa (Rahimullah) hadn’t read books much. But Allah Ta’ala granted a light in his heart, that which thing he mentioned was told totally correct. And now how much ever experience someone may have, but that ‘Ilm won’t be graced that Imam Sahab had attained.

Spiritual Diseases

Hadhrat Mufti-e-Azam Muhammad Shafi’ (nawarrallahu marqaduhu) says,

“But the big difference of spiritual diseases and their cure is, that physical diseases can be realized by the eyes or other senses, they can be found out through the motion of pulse and tests of blood and faeces and the therapy can be done by medical instruments and medicine, too. But the spiritual diseases are not visible for the eyes, nor can they be recognized by the pulse or anything else, in the same way they are not cured by given aliments or medicines. The diagnosis and cure of these diseases can be only determined by the rules told by the Qur’an and Sunnah. The complete system for the Islah [rectification] of all the outward ‘Amaal and Mu’amalat and the inner ‘Aqaid and Akhlaq does exist in the Qur’an and Sunnah.

In the Ummah from the Sahabah and Tabi’een onwards till the Saliheen and Kamileen of the present age whosoever has gained any perfection then only through this system, the complete adherence to actions. The same way they would be adherent to Salah, Sauwm, Hajj and Zakat the exactly same way they would show perfection in Sidq [truthfulness], Ikhlas [sincerity], Tauheed [oneness of Allah], Tawwadhu [humility], Sabr [patience], Shukr [thankfulness], Tawakkul [thankfulness], Zuhd [asceticism] and other inner actions. The way they saved themselves out of fear from lies, fraud, stealing, shameless and other sins the exactly same way they would know Kibr [arrogance] and pride, disgracing and disreputing others, Hubb-e-Jah [love for fame], Hubb-e-Maal [love for wealth], Hirs [greed], Bukhl [being stingy] and other inner sins as forbidden and would stay abstinent from them.”
