A tsunami is a large tidal wave which reaches heights of approximately 30 meters and travels at a speed of up to 805 km an hour. They often come in a series of waves called a “wave train”. Hence the destructive force is greatly increased as every successive wave crashes on the shore. Tsunamis cause widespread destruction and havoc and seriously affect the lives of thousands of people.

While the tsunamis that come from the ocean cause disaster on earth, there are tsunamis of a different form that crash on the hearts of people. In the terminology of the Qur’an and Sunnah, these tsunamis are called “fitna”. These fitna tsunamis overturn hearts and cause havoc and destruction to people’s Deen and Imaan.

Fed Like the Birds


Sunday, 24 March 2013 07:58

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “If you place your trust completely in Allah Ta‘ala, as it ought to be, then surely you will be provided sustenance in the manner that birds are provided sustenance. They leave in the morning with their belly empty and return in the evening with their belly full.” (Tirmizi #2344)

Every person’s main worry and concern is his/her sustenance. This overwhelming worry results in tension and high stress levels. The moment man’s gaze moves away from Allah Ta‘ala, then he begins to feel that the burden of sustenance lies completely on his shoulders. Man needs to take a lesson from the birds - the lesson of trust. While adopting the means and making a reasonable effort, to have one’s complete trust in Allah Ta‘ala. This will bring much relief in our lives.

Qari Raheem Bakhsh (rahmatullahi alaihi) was that great personality of Pakistan who is considered as the revivalist of hifz and qiraat in Pakistan. Together with the extraordinary awe that Allah Ta’ala had blessed him with, he was also blessed with great compassion and care.

The principal of the madrasah had once complained to him that one of your students frequents the cinema. Qari Sahib could not believe this and said, “This information cannot be true. It is impossible for my student to go to the cinema.”

Parents Before Friends

Ask our children:

1. If a mother and father love their child, will they do anything to harm the child?

2. Must we listen to our parents who care for us, or should we follow our friends who always dare us and challenge us?

3. Who is more important, our parents or friends?
