The Reality of Fanaa

Untitled Document

.....................................................................................................................

The stage of fanaa does not mean that you won’t achieve anything due to a seemingly negative attitude adopted. On the contrary, you achieve much, much more – far more than those who think something of themselves. Many a time, people are quite taken and surprised that in a short span of time, a person was able to achieve so much, in spite of his unassuming and unpretentious nature.

Everything done is very positive. Allah Ta’ala gives an abundance of barakat (blessings) in the lives of such humble servants. Added to this, Allah Ta’ala grants such people honour, dignity and respect.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) had said :

“Whoever adopts humility for Allah’s sake, Allah will elevate him (or her).”

Allah Ta’ala has also mentioned in Surah Furqaan that one of the most conspicuous traits to be found in His true servants is that they walk on the earth with humility and humbleness.

“And the slaves of the Most Beneficent (Allah) are those who walk on the earth in humility and sedateness…”

[Surah Furqaan 25 : 63]

However, it must be understood that humility is a condition of the heart. It this does not infer to a display and performance of humility and meekness, nor the posture and walk of the weak and sick when in reality the heart is dominated with arrogance and pride. There must be an agreement between the body and heart.

“Allah has created you from dust,
Hence O bondsman,
Adopt an attitude of meekness
and humility like dust.”

Hazrat Junaid (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) is, himself, a classical example of this first sign of an Aashiq of Allah. He not only thought of himself to be most insignificant, he believed that everything was through the Qudrat (Power), Mercy and Fadhl (Grace) of Allah Ta’ala. His achievements were such that till today we remember him and speak of him.

Thus, this is the first sign of the Lover of Allah Ta’ala : the person does not have any ‘airs’ about himself.

 

subheading-iconThe Exceptions


Of course in Jihad, a person will display his power, strength and force and make Jihad in the manner that Jihad is made. …He will protrude his chest, adopt an attitude of arrogance, and challenge and fight the enemy.

In fact, Imam Abu Dawood (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) mentions the following Hadith: “…There is pride which Allah hates and pride which Allah loves. That which Allah loves is a man’s pride when fighting …”

The motive behind this form of pride is to create awe and terror into the hearts of the enemies and to encourage ones fellow Mujahideen.

Another example is the Qadhi (Judge) who will be found seated with much eminence and distinction. This is due to the demand of the time and place. These are the exceptions. In reality, humility will still be found in such persons’ hearts.
