With the joyous occasion of ‘Eid almost upon us, the environment is charged with excitement and happiness permeates the atmosphere. From children to adults – everyone welcomes the day of ‘Eid with open arms and wishes that it would never end.

Now, imagine if every day of our lives could be ‘Eid! Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Fortunately, we don’t have to limit this desire to the realm of our imagination – we can make it a reality.

Hasan Basri (rahimahullah) once mentioned, “Every day in which a person did not disobey Allah Ta‘ala is a day of ‘Eid, and every day that a person spends in the obedience, remembrance and gratitude of Allah Ta‘ala is a day of ‘Eid.” (Lataaiful Ma‘aarif pg. 485)

(Wife of Nabi Ayyoob [‘alaihis salaam] – Part Two)

Nabi Ayyoob (‘alaihis salaam) remained in the state of sickness for more than eighteen years, yet he and his respected wife remained patient and steadfast.

One day, Shaitaan approached the wife of Nabi Ayyoob (‘alaihis salaam) in the form of a doctor. As he had adopted this form and appeared to be a normal person, she did not realise that it was actually Shaitaan in front of her. Thinking him to be a doctor, she asked him, out of concern for her husband, whether he had any cure for his illness. Shaitaan said, “I do have a cure. However, in return for the cure, he must address me and say, ‘You have cured me’. I do not want any other compensation for my treatment.”

(Four Surahs’ Series – Part Four)

Surah Waaqi‘ah is the 56th surah of the Quraan Majeed and can be found in the 27th juz (para), immediately after Surah Rahmaan.

The special virtue and benefit of Surah Waaqi‘ah is that the one who recites it every night will be saved from poverty. (Shu‘abul Imaan #2267)

On the occasion when Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) lay on his deathbed and was approaching his final moments, Sayyiduna ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was the khaleefah at the time, came to visit him.

Sahal bin ‘Abdillah Tustari (rahimahullah) was a renowned saint of his time. He was born in the city of Tustar (a city in South-Western Iran also known as Shushtar) during the year 200 or 201 A.H., and passed away in Basrah during the year 283 A.H.

Although Sahal bin ‘Abdillah Tustari (rahimahullah) acquired spiritual benefit from the saint, Zunnoon Misri (rahimahullah), the roots of his piety can be traced to the influence of his maternal uncle, Muhammad bin Sawwaar (rahimahullah). Sahal (rahimahullah) explains:

The Golden Formula​

The science of alchemy, practiced in various lands of the world in ancient times, is regarded by many to be the precursor to modern chemistry. Interestingly enough, many alchemists of their day and age conducted extensive research and various experiments in their search for the ‘golden’ formula – the recipe to transform any base metal into gold. It was thought that if any person had this formula, he would be able to accumulate wealth all the time and would become extremely rich with almost no effort. Hence, many people dedicated their lives to this quest.

While people today do not have this ‘fantastic formula’ to transform lead into gold, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gave us a far superior formula – the formula to transform any basic, mundane action into an act of worship. In this manner, even mundane deeds become a means for one to reap immense rewards in the Hereafter.
