(Respected Wife of Dr. Hafeezullah Madani [rahimahullah] - Part Three)

Dr. Kareemullah Makki, the son of Dr. Hafeezullah Madani (rahimahullah), mentioned the following regarding his respected mother:

My respected mother, until her demise, never once opposed the instruction of my father, even though fulfilling his instruction may have been awkward or caused her inconvenience.

Regarding my mother’s caution in spending wealth, I heard my respected father mention, “She never spent even one rupee without my permission.” In fact, she would not even spend her personal wealth or go to meet any person without first securing my father’s permission. Her obedience to my father and ensuring that she asked him before doing anything was to such an extent that she would not even acquire her basic necessities such as clothing, etc. without first consulting him.

We all have the burning desire in our hearts to present ourselves at the doorstep of the Ka’bah and fulfill the blessed rites of hajj. Some are fortunate enough to perform hajj once in a lifetime, some twice in a lifetime, and there are the select few who are extremely fortunate as they perform hajj annually.

However, Allah Ta‘ala, in His infinite kindness, has made it such that even those who cannot journey to Makkah Mukarramah to perform hajj are able to acquire the reward of hajj. Furthermore, they can do it from the comfort of their own homes!

Below are two such actions through which one can perform ‘Hajj from Home’:

Buraidah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports: “I heard that Mu‘aaz bin Jabal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had captured a Jinn during the lifetime of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). I thus went to Mu‘aaz (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and asked him regarding this incident. Mu‘aaz (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated the following to me:

“Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had entrusted the dates of sadaqah to me for safekeeping. Thus, I placed these dates in one of my rooms. However, I would daily find that the dates had decreased. So I went to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and complained to him of the dates decreasing, to which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, ‘It is the work of a Shaitaan. Wait for him in ambush.’

مَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُؤْتِيَهُ اللَّـهُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحُكْمَ وَالنُّبُوَّةَ ثُمَّ يَقُولَ لِلنَّاسِ كُونُوا عِبَادًا لِّي مِن دُونِ اللَّـهِ وَلَـٰكِن كُونُوا رَبَّانِيِّينَ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تُعَلِّمُونَ الْكِتَابَ وَبِمَا كُنتُمْ تَدْرُسُونَ

It is not (possible) for a man that Allah Ta‘ala give him the Book, wisdom and prophethood, and he then begins saying to the people “Become my worshippers, rather than Allah’s”. Rather, (he would say), “Be men of the Rabb; for you have been teaching the Book, and you have been learning it.” (Surah Aal-‘Imraan v79)

The Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) were blessed to be the special representatives of Allah Ta‘ala on the earth, they were blessed with divine knowledge from Allah Ta‘ala and they were given divine scriptures. The mission of these divinely selected Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) was to invite towards Allah Ta‘ala – not to invite towards themselves. It does not make sense that any man, after enjoying such favours from Allah Ta‘ala and gaining such recognition of Allah Ta‘ala, would invite people to himself instead of Allah Ta‘ala. This verse refutes the belief of the Christians who claim that Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) instructed the people to worship him.

(Respected Wife of Dr. Hafeezullah Madani [rahimahullah] - Part Two)

Dr. Kareemullah Makki, the son of Dr. Hafeezullah Madani (rahimahullah), mentioned the following regarding his respected mother:

‘A child’s first classroom is the mother’s lap’ is a well known adage. Alhamdulillah, we were blessed to be raised in the ‘classroom’ of my mother, who was extremely pious and blessed in all aspects of Deen. On account of her piety, she strove to instil within us (her children) piety and the values and mindset of Islam, and was thus very particular regarding our behaviour and actions. In fact, she would continuously monitor every action of ours and correct us where necessary.
