Respecting the Name of Allah


Saturday, 19 June 2021 09:24

There was once a very pious man whose name was Bishr bin Haarith (rahimahullah). However, all the people would call him Bishr Haafi.

One day, someone came to him and asked him, “How did you become so pious, that all the people love you and respect you!”

Bishr Haafi (rahimahullah) said:

“What can I say? It is only out of the kindness of Allah Ta‘ala! I was a man who was not a good Muslim. However, one day, while I was walking in a certain place, I saw a piece of paper that was lying on the road. I picked it up and saw that on it was written ‘Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem’. When I saw the name of Allah Ta‘ala on the paper, I wiped it clean and placed it in my pocket with respect.

(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.
