The Option of Yusuf (A.S.)

Untitled Document

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

Since reference had been made of Hazrat Yusuf (‘Alaihis Salaam), another important point comes to light : When Hazrat Yusuf (‘Alaihis Salaam) refused the proposal and advances of not only Zuleikha, but also her companions, and was thus threatened with imprisonment, then he said :

 “…‘O my Lord! Prison is more beloved to me than that which they invite me…”
[Surah Yusuf 12 : 33]

Subhanallah… What must have been the condition of the heart of Hazrat Yusuf (‘Alaihis Salaam) to consider and prefer prison to such an invitation?

The condition of the hearts and souls of the lovers of Allah Ta’ala have a similar bearing and semblance : Why do they not prefer casting evil, lustful glances at women or indulging in illicit relationships ? Why do they not prefer the cinema, theatre, casino, music and that filth which sinful ones like us relish and delight in? Why ?

Because the hearts of these Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala) are so in tune to the beauty and love of Allah and the pleasure of obedience to Him that in the path of Divine Love, sacrifice is favoured and preferred over that which nafs and Shaytaan invites them to. In truth, the very thought of sin shames them.

To return to the illustration of the condition of the spiritual heart : When this pain and weight comes onto the heart which is sacrificing those evil desires, for the Pleasure of Allah, and when that heart is covered with the blood of sacrifice, then the King of Kings and the Creator of the heart, will pay the King of the body.

Allah will grant that heart the sweetness of Imaan, the taste of which will be experienced therein, and He will imbue that heart with satisfaction and peace.
