Laylatul Qadr by
Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullahi
love for His Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi
wa-Sallam) is clearly evident and manifest in
many Ayaat (verses) of the Qur`aan Shareef. Additionally,
whilst other Ambiyaa (Alayhimus Salaam) were gifted
with exclusive titles, it was Rasulullah (Sallallaahu
‘alayhi wa-Sallam) alone, whose title was
“Habibullah” (The Beloved of Allah).
Due to this Divine
love for Sayyidina Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi
wa-Sallam), his Ummah is recipient to special
mercy, blessings and favours from Allah Ta’ala.
It is only due to our connection and association
with Nabi-e-Akram (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa-Sallam)
that Allah Ta’ala has honoured us above
we find that with the commencement of Ramadaan,
thousands of Muslims begin to contribute to different
noble causes – whether these are specific
for Ramadaan, such as providing Iftaar, Sehri
or hampers for the poor, or whether in respect
to the general efforts made to alleviate the plight
of those who are suffering in different parts
of the world. …So monies begin to pour in
by way of Zakaah, Sadaqah and Lillah – Alhamdulillah.
May Allah Ta’ala accept the different contributions.
There is, however,
one shortfall when it comes to the payment of
Zakaah, and that is, that the majority choose
to give their Zakaah in the month of Ramadaan,
thinking that they are getting a greater reward
giving in Ramadaan; whereas for many, their Zakaah
was sometimes due months before.
True Zikrullah by Hazrat Maulana Yunus
Patel Saheb (rahmatullahi alayh)
True Zikr is
to fulfil the Command of Allah Ta’ala which
is directed to us at a particular time –
to perform Salaah in its respective time, to pay
Zakaah when due, to fast during the month of Ramadaan,
to perform Hajj at the time of Hajj (if one has
the means), etc.
When a person’s parent, wife, child, neighbour,
etc. is very ill and requires medication to be
brought from the chemist, as a matter of urgency,
then at that time, true Zikr is to postpone all
optional Ibaadah and attend to the need.
If our sinuses are unclogged we can begin to smell the fragarance of the Blessed month of Ramadaan that is approaching. Example of scraping off old paint through Taubah in order to prepare the heart to receive the fresh new paint of Rahmat coming in Ramadaan. Zikr and Dua.
These days people are turning Haraam into Halaal, e.g. alchohol, music and interest. For a layman to follow the fatwa of a reputable Mufti is Taqwa. Sins are like the glittering skin of the snake, run to Allah Ta'ala and dont get bitten
