Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

Should we believe in horoscopes and signs? Sometimes I read things about my sign and the prediction that is written for my sign upsets me if there is something scary. I want to know whether this information is true or baseless. Please clarify this.

May Allah bless you.

(Respected Wife of ‘Aarif Billah, Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar [rahimahullah] – Part Four)

Alhamdulillah, I was born to loving parents who made a change in their lives –   change for Deen to become the objective of their lives and the lives of their progeny till Qiyaamah. So with the grace and mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, I did not face any challenge within my home, as the environment in our home had already been created and was an environment of Deen and the sunnah.

But yes, I did face many challenges. Most of us do at some point in our lives, and maybe we face the hardest challenges (when it comes to hijaab and niqaab) with our own family and relatives.

Although I grew up with some of my cousins, my siblings and I were always different (we did not go to every place that they went to and we did not do everything they did). We dressed differently, our lifestyles were different and we were home schooled.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once mentioned to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “By Allah! It is not poverty that I fear for you! Rather, I fear for you that the world will be spread out for you (i.e. it will be given to you in abundance), as it was spread out for those who came before you. You will then desire and pine for it, as they desired and pined for it, and it will destroy you as it destroyed them.” (Saheeh Bukhaari #3158)

Normally, prior to departing from this world, it is the concern of every father that his beloved children should be financially secure. For this purpose, he labours and toils until he is confident that he has left them in a state of material security. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was like a father to the Ummah, and his love for the Ummah was far greater than the love of any father for his child. However, contrary to normal fathers, the fear and concern of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) for his Ummah was not that they will fall into poverty. Rather, his concern was the exact opposite – that they will hanker after wealth and become intoxicated by it.

Overcome by Concern

Muhammad bin ‘Ali bin ‘Abdillah Haddaad narrates the following incident from a person whom he knew:

I was once present in the Jaami’ Musjid, in the city of Mansoor, on the Day of Jumu‘ah. While in the musjid, I noticed a man in the saff (row) in front of me who had an outward appearance of dignity and humility. He was so engrossed in performing nafl salaah that he remained engaged in salaah from the moment he entered the musjid until the time drew near for the Jumu‘ah salaah to be performed, and only at that time did he end his salaah and remain seated. Seeing the apparent piety of this man, I became overawed by him and my heart was filled with love for him.
