Ask our children:

1. Who gives us everything that we have and enjoy?

2. If we want something, who should we ask?

Now tell them the story:

Ahmad was a boy who loved to eat donuts. Every Friday, as his father was leaving for work, Ahmad would run behind him and remind him, “Abba! Please don’t forget that it’s Friday today! Today’s donut day!”

Before coming home from work every Friday, Ahmad’s father would stop at the bakery and buy some fresh, hot donuts for Ahmad. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside... dripping with melted chocolate... filled with fresh cream... Ahmad just couldn’t wait! As soon as ‘Asr Salaah was over, Ahmad would keep running to the door, waiting for his father to arrive with his tasty donuts.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin ‘Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Those who show mercy and compassion to others, Allah Ta‘ala the Most Merciful will show them mercy and compassion. Show mercy to those on the earth, the One in the Heavens (i.e. Allah Ta‘ala whose control and power extends over the Heavens and the earth) will show mercy to you.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4941)

In this blessed hadeeth, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has taught us that if we want to be blessed with the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, we will have to show mercy, kindness and compassion to others – be they Muslim, non-Muslim or even animals.

If we want Allah Ta‘ala to forgive us, we will have to have the heart to forego our grudges and forgive others. If we want Allah Ta‘ala to overlook our shortcomings, we will have to overlook the shortcomings and mistakes of others.

When we adopt an outlook of forgiving and forgetting the wrongs that we suffer from other people, Allah Ta‘ala will similarly bless us to repent for our sins. He will then readily forgive us and erase our sins.

May Allah Ta‘ala bless us all with the quality of kindness and compassion, aameen.

Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) was once proceeding to a certain place for some task when he passed by a grave. On looking at the grave, Allah Ta‘ala showed him that angels of punishment were torturing the inmate of the grave.

Sometime later, when Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) had completed his task and was returning, he again passed by the grave. However, Allah Ta‘ala now showed him that instead of angels of punishment, there were angels of mercy at the grave, bearing platters of divine radiance!

Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) was surprised at this sudden change in condition. He thus performed salaah and engaged in du‘aa, begging Allah Ta‘ala to reveal to him what had caused the punishment of the inmate to cease and be replaced with His special mercy.

True Taqwa​

Tuesday, 09 October 2018 15:50

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّـهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ

O people of imaan! Fear Allah Ta‘ala as He should be feared, and do not die except as Muslims.

In this verse, Allah Ta‘ala commands us to adopt true taqwa by fearing Him ‘as he ought to be feared’. The following are some statements in regard to true taqwa:

1. Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has mentioned that true taqwa is for one to obey Allah Ta‘ala completely and not disobey Him in the least, to remember Allah Ta‘ala and not be unmindful of Him, and to show gratitude to Him (for his innumerable favours), not ingratitude. (Majma‘uz Zawaaid #10938)

2. Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) has mentioned that true taqwa is for one to always remain just and uphold the commands of Allah Ta‘ala, and not to allow the criticism and comments of people to deter one from fulfilling the commands of Allah Ta‘ala. (Tafseer Qurtubi vol. 5, pg. 238)
