Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “On no day is the worship of Allah Ta‘ala more beloved than in the first ten days of Zul-Hijjah. The fasts of each of these days are equal to the fast of an entire year, and the worship of each of these nights is equal to the worship of laylatul qadr (the night of power).” (Sunan Tirmizi #758)

Imagine being told that if you work on a particular day, you will receive an entire year’s salary! No one will let such an opportunity pass by. Instead he/she will “grab it with both hands”. Here we are afforded the good fortune of receiving an entire years fasting for each day that we will fast. To crown it all, we are guaranteed the worship of laylatul qadr by night, whereas in Ramadhaan we need to search for it. It is now for us to take advantage of this golden opportunity and earn the maximum benefit.

Deprived of All Goodness

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “The one who is deprived of gentleness is deprived of all goodness.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4809)

Good qualities such as mercy, kindness, forgiveness, humility, patience, tolerance etc. have a direct link to gentleness. Without gentleness, a person is bound to be hard, harsh, revengeful, proud, hasty, and deprived of all goodness.

A man came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) informing him of two women who were fasting and were about to die of thirst. Initially Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) ignored him but when he came for a second time Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) called for the women. When they came, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) ordered one of them to vomit in a bowl that was brought. She vomited flesh, blood and pus that filled half the bowl. Then he ordered the second one to vomit as well, and she vomited the same that had now filled the entire bowl. Thereafter Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “These two women observed fast from that which is normally permissible (i.e. food and drink) but have broken their fast on that which is always impermissible. They sat eating the flesh of people (i.e. backbiting).” (Musnad Ahmad #23653)

Allah Ta‘ala Loves Kindness

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Verily Allah Ta‘ala is kind, He loves kindness and He grants upon kindness that which He does not grant upon harshness.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4807)

When a parent likes things in a certain way, then it is only natural that the parent will love that child who adopts that way more. Now, when Allah Ta‘ala is kind and He loves kindness, imagine what we will enjoy from the treasure of Allah Ta‘ala if we also adopt kindness. Kindness is that special means by which we will enjoy the favours of Allah Ta‘ala.

 

“Islamic” Alcohol and Music

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “There will be people from my Ummah, who will consume alcohol after changing its name, on their heads will be instruments of music and singing girls. Allah Ta‘ala will make the ground swallow them and mutate them into apes and swine.” (Saheeh Ibni Hibbaan #6758)

May Allah Ta‘ala protect us from being amongst those people who will consume what is unlawful and be so bold to re-label the unlawful as lawful. When pleasure and carnal desire becomes the goal, then everything possible will be done so as to enjoy it, even if be the legalising of alcohol and music by calling it “Islamic”. Such persons no longer qualify to be from amongst the human race, thus they will be changed into apes and swine. They are a burden on earth, thus they will be swallowed by the ground.
