Sensitive Saarah

Ask our children:

1. If our parents or teachers scold us, what should we do?

2. If we do something wrong or make a mistake, what should we do?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a little girl named Saarah who was very helpful, very kind and very intelligent. However, her parents and teachers always complained that she had one problem – nobody could tell her anything!

If she was misbehaving and being naughty, and her father scolded her, she would immediately begin to cry! If she was being lazy and did not want to pack her toys, and her mother told her to stop being lazy, she would begin to tantrum and scream! Also, if she did not know her sabaq and her aapa told her to learn it again, she would start to cry!

Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah)

Condition:

Please explain the meaning of “radhaa bil qadhaa” to me.

Answer:

To abstain from objecting or complaining - either with the tongue or the heart - about the conditions that are sent by Allah Ta‘ala which are against one’s likes. Instead, one should accept that Allah Ta‘ala is both the Absolute Ruler and Absolutely Wise as well. Hence, one must consider His decree to be beneficial and one must remain pleased with it. This is the meaning of “radhaa bil qadhaa”. Nevertheless, to experience natural sorrow over a calamity and to make du‘aa for it to be alleviated does not contradict or negate “radhaa bil qadhaa”.

Passion for Spending on the Poor

(Sayyidah ‘Aaishah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] – Part Six)

As previously discussed, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was extremely generous and loved spending on the poor. Hence, whenever she received any wealth, she would begin to spend it on the poor.

On one occasion, the dear and beloved nephew of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), became concerned over the large amounts of wealth that she was spending in charity, and thus mentioned, “Her spending must be curtailed.”

When Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) heard about this, she was greatly disappointed that her nephew wished to restrict her in spending on the poor. In fact, her disappointment was so much that she took a vow to cease speaking to Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma).

The Power of Repetition

There was once a class of students who were determined to get a day off from school. Hence, they put their heads together, scheming and plotting, and eventually came up with a plan.

When the teacher entered the class and called the first student to read his lesson, the student remarked, “Sir! You look quite sick!” The teacher brushed him aside and replied that he felt perfectly healthy. Then, when the second student was called to the desk, he also made a similar remark, even going as far as to suggest that Sir looked flushed and may even have a fever. Thereafter, every student who came to the desk ‘sincerely’ sympathized with the teacher, insisting that he looked dreadfully unwell, until the teacher was finally convinced that he really was sick, thus sending the students home so that he could rest.

In the story above, the teacher was perfectly healthy and fine. However, when the same information was repeatedly drummed into his head, it completely changed his perception and reshaped his reality, until he actually began to feel sick and miserable.
