Complete Protection

Last Updated on Monday, 21 January 2013 07:43

While fasting we protect ourselves from consuming any food or drink. Let us now extend this protection to the other limbs of our body. Let us protect our eyes from looking at strange men as well as from watching television. Protect our ears from listening to music and evil, protect our tongues from gossip and futile talk. Protect our minds from suspicion and thinking ill of others and generally protect ourselves from all sin. We need to protect ourselves from all actions that will anger our Allah Ta’ala. Once we have disconnected ourselves from sin, we will easily connect ourselves to Allah Ta’ala. The enjoyment and contentment of life only begins when we have a link and contact with Allah Ta’ala. Many Ramadaans have come and gone in our lives. Let us make this Ramadaan a month which will bring about a complete change and upliftment in our lives. Our sincere intention is the start to our reformation. 

 

Saahibe Tarteeb

Let us all strive to become a Saahibe Tarteeb. A Saahibe Tarteeb is that special servant of Allah Ta’ala who from the day of buloogh (maturity) to the present day, has no Qadhaa (missed) Salaah. Those who may have missed some Salaah simply need to sit down, apply their minds and to the best of one’s ability calculate the number of Salaah that were missed since becoming baaligh. Thereafter on a daily basis one should make up the missed Salaah. Once one has completed the missed Salaah, one will Insha Allah qualify to be a “Saahibe Tarteeb”.

Becoming a Saahibe Tarteeb and remaining one, should be a goal in our life. Let us encourage our family and friends, especially our little ones, to become a Saahibe Tarteeb. Let us speak about it and allow it to become a reality in our lives.

 

Pious women in Ramadaan

Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhalwi (rahmatullahi alaih) mentioned regarding his daughters that during the month of Ramadaan despite them taking care of their many children and seeing to their household duties, they remained awake for long durations at night, to hear the recitation of the Quraan Majeed from different reciters. Together with this, they compete with each other to recite at least fourteen or fifteen paras (juz) of the Quraan Majeed during the day. 

As for Moulana’s grandmother, her daily practice outside the month of Ramadaan was that together with reciting approximately 7 paras (juz) of the Quraan Majeed, she would recite different tasbeehaat about seventeen thousand times. In the month of Ramadaan she used to recite 40 paras (juz) of the Quraan Majeed daily. Moulana’s great grandmother had the opportunity of hearing the entire Quraan being recited by her son in one rakaat. (Akaabir ka Ramadaan, pg. 72-73).

These were pious women of our recent past and it is now up to us to also apply ourselves in the worship of Allah Ta’ala.

 

Four Roads to the Heart

We have four roads that lead to the heart, the eyes, ears, tongue and mind. The heart takes effect from what we see, hear, speak and think. If we see good, hear good, speak good and think good, then the heart becomes good and allows good actions to flow from the limbs of our body. 

If four streams of water flow into a pond, but three streams carry pure water while one stream deposits polluted water into it, then the entire pond will become polluted. For the pond to be pure, all four streams must carry pure water. Thus for our hearts to remain good, our eyes, ears, tongue and mind need to be safeguarded from all types of sin and evil. The month of Ramadaan is the ideal month to train our eyes not to look at the forbidden television screen, our ears not to listen to the forbidden music, our tongues not to engage in backbiting, and our minds not to have ill thoughts of people or fantasize about haraam. Let us strive to have a pure heart, a heart connected to Allah Ta’ala.

 

Start from a Tender Age

Encourage our children from a tender age to start keeping their fasts, even if it means half a fast or as much as they can manage. If we do not train them from a young age, it becomes very difficult for them to suddenly start keeping all thirty fasts when they become of age. Thus we are faced with the problem where many youngsters who are of age, break their fasts during the day without their parents even knowing. As an encouragement reward our little children for the fasts that they keep. Also encourage them to complete at least one recitation of the entire Quraan Majeed in the month of Ramadaan. Very few today make time for the recitation of the Quraan Majeed. The month of Ramadaan is that special month in which we can once again bring alive the Quraan into our lives.
