The Devil's Injection

Sometimes we may like something while not realising that in it lies our destruction. Likewise we may at times dislike something yet it is our salvation. Allah Ta’ala alone knows what is good for us. 

With regards to having children, some couples only have girls while others have boys. Some have their children early, while others later. Some have one and some have none. All of this happens with the divine command of our Allah Ta’ala. The moment we forget our Allah Ta’ala, Shaytaan the devil gets an opportunity to interfere. He injects such thoughts and feelings into us that we start doubting and questioning our Allah Ta’ala. We lose trust in our compassionate Allah Ta’ala. With time we move further and further away from our loving Allah Ta’ala. Life then becomes helpless, hopeless and miserable. All we need to do is turn once more towards our forgiving Allah Ta’ala, be content with his decree and then see our lives brightening up once again.  

 

The Gift of Me'raj

On the twenty seventh of Rajab people discuss the great incident of Me’raj. Thereafter by and large the miracle of Me’raj and its message is forgotten until the following year.

Unlike us, the Sahaabah (radiyallahu anhum) and the Tabi'een (those who came after the Sahaabah) never set aside any particular day for the discussion of the incident of Me’raj. Hence even the scholars of the first century differed with regard to the actual date when Me’raj occurred (see Fathul Bari, vol.7, pg.203 and Ruhul Ma’aani, vol.15, pg.6). The Sahaabah (radiyallahu anhum) and the Tabi'een (rahimahumullah) had no need to set aside any particular day for this discussion. They regularly and frequently discussed the Ahadith with regard to all aspects of the life of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). They lived the message of Me’raj every day of their lives.

When Ayyub (alaihis salaam) was tested with an illness, everyone had abandoned him except his wife Rahma. She remained by his side to nurse and take care of him. This is a praiseworthy quality of a loyal wife. Indeed, every husband must have great compassion, love and consideration for his wife. The wife must be totally loyal to her husband in all conditions. It should not be the case of enjoying life with the husband in prosperity and abandoning him when he is ill or in difficulty. There is an expression that says, “When poverty knocks at the door then love flies out through the window.” Nevertheless a Muslim wife should continue to serve and obey her husband solely for the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. We should not be motivated by the temporary material world.

 

Beat the children with love

Hakeemul-Ummah Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi alahi) used to say, : ‘When someone becomes my follower, my main concern and worry is not to reform that person, instead my first concern is to embed my love in that persons heart since if he loves me, he will obey me.’ Similarly, once the child loves his parents, he will be prepared to do anything for them. To get angry with one’s child and to chase him out of the home may not be an effective form of punishment. In fact in many cases the child will be too happy to be away from the angry nagging parents. Yes, if the child loves the parent, then the slight displeasure of the parent is sufficient to stop the child from further displeasing the parent. In this era we need to “beat” our children with love, mercy and kindness or else we may loose them.
