(Mother of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee [daamat barakaatuhum] – Part Five)

When Mufti Saheb (daamat barakaatuhum) completed his studies in Darul ‘Uloom Deoband and returned home to Isipingo Beach, he intended to start off a madrasah for hifz and ‘aalim students.

At the time, some people advised him that he should work for half a day and teach for half a day. In this way, he would be able to earn an income and also teach Deen. However, his respected mother advised him to spend all his time for Deen, as they (his parents) were prepared to support him. In this way Mufti Saheb (daamat barakaatuhum) was able to dedicate all his time and effort to the madrasah. 

In this manner, the mother and father of Mufti Saheb (daamat barakaatuhum) were greatly instrumental in commencing the Darul ‘Uloom – Madrasah Ta’leemuddeen, as it was with their support and encouragement that Mufti Saheb (daamat barakaatuhum) was able to carry out the work of Deen.

Ask our children:

1. Have we seen people in wheelchairs, who cannot walk, or people who are sick, and cannot look after themselves?

2. How should we treat these people? Should we laugh at them, or should we be kind to them and help them?

Now tell them the story:

Once, there was a young boy named Safwaan. Safwaan had a mummy and daddy, and also had a brother and sister who were both smaller than him. However, Safwaan was not like other children. When Safwaan was born, the doctors told his parents that he was a special child.

PPE – Personal Protective Equipment

Personal Protective Equipment – also known as PPE – exists in many forms. The bulletproof vest worn by a guard escorting a cash-in-transit van, the helmet worn by a labourer on a construction site, the dark goggles or visor worn by a welder, and the sealed-overalls and veils worn by a beekeeper are typical examples of PPE.

In all cases, the purpose of PPE is to protect and shield the user from sustaining an injury or suffering harm. The bulletproof vest is designed to prevent the penetration of a bullet, the helmet shields the skull of the wearer from suffering an impact, the goggles of the welder protect his eyes from the harsh glare of the flame and sparks, and the sealed-overalls and veil of the beekeeper protect him from being stung while tending to the hives.

The problem with all PPE though, is that it does not always work. For example, a person with a bulletproof vest can still be shot in the head, and a particularly persistent bee may manage to wriggle its way into the beekeeper’s suit and sting him.

وَمَا مُحَمَّدٌ إِلَّا رَسُولٌ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِن قَبْلِهِ الرُّسُلُ ۚ أَفَإِن مَّاتَ أَوْ قُتِلَ انقَلَبْتُمْ عَلَىٰ أَعْقَابِكُمْ ۚ وَمَن يَنقَلِبْ عَلَىٰ عَقِبَيْهِ فَلَن يَضُرَّ اللَّهَ شَيْئًا ۗ وَسَيَجْزِي اللَّهُ الشَّاكِرِينَ ﴿١٤٤﴾‏ وَمَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَن تَمُوتَ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ كِتَابًا مُّؤَجَّلًا ۗ وَمَن يُرِدْ ثَوَابَ الدُّنْيَا نُؤْتِهِ مِنْهَا وَمَن يُرِدْ ثَوَابَ الْآخِرَةِ نُؤْتِهِ مِنْهَا ۚ وَسَنَجْزِي الشَّاكِرِينَ​

Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is but a messenger (Rasul of Allah Ta‘ala). There have been messengers before him. So, if he dies or is killed, will you turn back on your heels? The one who turns back on his heels can never harm Allah in the least, and Allah will soon reward the grateful. And it is not (possible) for one to die except by the permission of Allah at a stipulated time. Whoever seeks a reward in this world, We shall give him out of it, and whoever seeks a reward in the Hereafter, We shall give him out of it. We shall soon reward the grateful. (Surah Aal ‘Imraan v. 144-145)

Every Muslim possesses love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in his heart, and indeed love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is a demand of imaan.
