(Wife of Moulana Qaasim Nanotwi [rahimahullah] - Part Four)

The respected wife of Moulana Qaasim Nanotwi (rahimahullah) was not only a saintly soul – she was a faithful wife who displayed true loyalty to her husband and went beyond the call of duty in fulfilling his rights.

As the piety, knowledge and wisdom of Moulana Qaasim (rahimahullah) became well known, people from far and wide began to flock to him. As a result, there were always guests in his home, with barely a single meal passing without guests being present. His respected wife was extremely efficient in seeing to the household responsibilities and would ensure that there was always food prepared for the guests. Even when there was a shortage of wealth in the home, she would try her best to honour the guests and see to their comfort. In regard to her big-heartedness, Moulana Qaasim (rahimahullah) once mentioned, “Our generosity is on account of Ahmad’s mother (referring to his respected wife).”

Ask our children:

1. Is it good to be greedy or should we be happy with what we have?

2. When we see other people who don’t have the things that we have then what should we do?

3. If we don’t get what we want, should we be sad?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little boy named Goolaam who was very, very greedy. He was so greedy that no matter what he had, it was never enough for him and he always wanted more!

Sayyiduna Abud Dardaa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “Seek for me those who are weak (so that I may sit in their company and ask them to make du‘aa against the enemy), as you are only provided with sustenance and given assistance by Allah Ta‘ala through (the blessing and du‘aa of) the weak among you.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #2594, Bazlul Majhood vol. 4, pg. 231)

Every community has its share of ‘weak’ people. Be they elderly parents, widows, orphans, the poor and destitute or even the sick and ailing, they are all ‘weak’, as they struggle to fend for themselves and generally rely, to differing degrees, on those around them.

In the hadeeth above, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) wished to show the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) that their might and strength was not the key to gaining victory over the enemy. Rather, it was the mercy and assistance of Allah Ta‘ala that was the key, and one way to secure this, would be through the du‘aas of the weak. Hence, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) requested that weak people be sought so that he could request them to make du‘aa for the victory of the Muslim army.

A person once came to Ebrahim bin Adham (rahimahullah) and said, “O Abu Ishaaq! I am a great transgressor and sinner. Please give me some advice that will serve as a deterrent from sin and will save my heart.”

Ebrahim bin Adham (rahimahullah) replied, “If you accept five things from me and you are able to hold fast to them, you will neither be harmed by falling into sin nor will you be destroyed through falling prey to your carnal desires.” The man replied, “Mention them, O Abu Ishaaq.”

Ebrahim bin Adham (rahimahullah) commenced enumerating the five things as follows:
