Fadhal bin Rabee’ narrates the following incident:

I once set out for hajj in the company of the khaleefah, Haroon Rasheed. En route, we passed by the city of Kufah where we encountered Bahlool, (who was known as) the madman (due to him being madly in love with Allah Ta‘ala), who was muttering and babbling away. I said to him, “Keep silent! Ameerul Mu-mineen has arrived!” Thus, he ceased his muttering and remained silent.

When the carriage of Haroon Rasheed drew near to him, he suddenly called out, “O Ameerul Mu-mineen! Ayman bin Naabil narrated to me that Qudaamah bin ‘Abdillah Al-‘Aamiri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, ‘I saw Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mounted on a camel in Mina. He (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was seated on a worn, old saddle. There (in the presence of Rasulullah [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam]), the people were not struck, pushed or shouted at, “Move! Move!” (i.e. the Sahaabah [radhiyallahu ‘anhum] were neither hitting the people nor pushing them to clear the path for Rasulullah [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam], as your entourage are doing here for you today).’”

The Ultimate Kindness​

Every mother knows that it is impermissible for a child to breastfeed after the age of two. At the same time, mothers understand that their infant children cannot progress from a purely milk-based diet to a diet of solids overnight. If this drastic, unfamiliar change is thrust upon the child in an instant, he will struggle to adapt and his digestive system will suffer.

In exactly the same way, we all know that once a child becomes baaligh (reaches the age of maturity), it is compulsory for him to perform all the five daily salaah on time. Furthermore, in the case of a male, these salaah will have to be performed in the masjid.

Just as a mother begins weaning her breastfeeding child in advance, and gradually introduces solids to him, so that when he is two years of age, he is already accustomed to solids and can easily make the transition, the parents should adopt the same approach for their children’s salaah.

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

Condition:

I like beautiful and good clothes and shoes. Is it fine to purchase and wear these?

Does doing so entail love for the world? Will it be an obstacle for the love of Allah Ta‘ala entering my heart?
