Imitating Others

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The person who imitates a people, will be from amongst them.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4031)

As Muslims we cannot adopt the ways of others. We are a nation that leads, we do not follow others in their dressing, ways and habits. Those who imitate others can never be real. They will always be “fake” and “imitation.” Therefore why should we forsake our real identity as a muslimah and try to become a fake copy of the disbelievers and people who have no direction in life. They spend their day in drink and their night in sin and yet we take them as role models!!!! No muslim will ever desire to be resurrected from amongst the disbelievers. So let us live as muslims, die as muslims and be resurrected as muslims.

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Allah Ta’ala is at the assistance of a servant for as long as the servant remains at the assistance of his/her (Muslim) brother/sister.” (Saheeh Muslim #2699)

This is a guaranteed means of securing the divine help of Allah Ta’ala. Simply remain at the service of others.

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “When a woman performs her five daily salaah, keeps the fast of Ramadaan, remains chaste and pure, and she obeys her husband then she may enter Jannah through whichever door she desires.” (Saheeh Ibnu Hibbaan #4163) 

Subhanallah! What a simple prescription for women to gain everlasting success. A woman has to simply do the following:

- Be obedient to Allah Ta’ala.

- Protect one’s chastity. This requires that she does not intermingle with  strange men, lower her gaze, and fully cover herself if she leaves the home out of necessity.

- Be obedient to her husband within the limits of deen. 

While this is the prescription for the everlasting success of the hereafter, it is also the prescription for harmony and happiness in one’s marriage.

 
   

The Dearest Action

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “On the tenth of Zul-Hijjah (the day of qurbaani) there is no action of the son of Aadam (alaihis salaam) more dear to Allah Ta’ala than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal will come on the Day of Judgment with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed in reward). The sacrifice is also accepted by Allah Ta’ala before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.” (Tirmizi #1493)

Certain actions on specific days have a special reward attached to them. The sacrificing of animals during the days of sacrifice is one such action that is most beloved to Allah Ta’ala and most rewarding. Thus qurbaani should be done with a heart full of joy. It should not be taken as a burden. After all, there is only good and benefit for us in doing our qurbaani.

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said:  “The expenses incurred during haj is like that incurred in jihad, rewarded seven hundred times.” (Musnad Ahmad #23000) 

It is not possible for the material world to offer us an opportunity where we can invest our money and secure for ourselves a return which is seven hundred times over. Here on the occasion of haj we are rewarded seven hundred times for the money we spend during haj with rewards that are stored for us in the eternal vaults of the hereafter, where there is no fear of any deficiency, loss, or theft.
