The Story of the Eagle taking Rasullulah's (SAW) Sock

Untitled Document

Maulana Jalaluddeen Rumi (Rahmatullah ’alaih) narrates a story in    his Mathnavi; an incident which occurred during the time of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) : Once, after having performed wudhu, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) was about to wear his leather sock when an eagle came along, snatched it and flew away. Nabi was most distressed as he was preparing for Salaah.

In a short while, the eagle returned and turned the sock upside down, towards the ground, causing a snake that was inside, to fall out.

The eagle then presented the sock to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) and addressed him : “O Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) ! The reason for me having taken the sock was that there was a snake hidden inside it. Otherwise I would never harm you, for Allah Ta’ala has ordered me to protect you. It was on account of the snake that I flew off with the sock.”

Outwardly, there was some distress, but it was a means of goodness. We should therefore consider that whatever calamity befalls us, wards off a greater calamity.

 

subheading-iconAll praise be to Allah in every condition


One morning, as a Wali was leaving his home, he struck his head against the doorframe (in India, many homes have doorframes which are low). The pain experienced, forced him to lie down. He uttered the words : “Alhamdu lillahi ala kulli haal” (All praise be to Allah in every condition).

…In every decision and action of Allah’s, there is both wisdom and good for His servant. Sometimes this remains unknown and hidden.

Nevertheless, a short while later, he was informed that on the path which he would have proceeded down, there lay in wait some of his enemies who intended to kill him. A little injury but he was saved from death at the hands of his enemies.

Thus, if something does happen, there must not be such concern in our hearts that we rush towards Haraam. To cite another example : A person’s car is hijacked. He must believe that there is some goodness or ‘khair’ in this; that it was only the car. It could very well have been that the car was hijacked when the family was in the car and they could have been taken to some desolate spot and could have been killed.

Always think of something worse which could have happened. Adopt Tafweez : believe that everything is in the ‘hands’ of Allah Ta’ala and if He has decided something, then there is definitely goodness therein. Then be satisfied with the decision of Allah Ta’ala. If we learn only this much : that after Tadbeer, follows Tafweez  i.e. being pleased with Allah Ta’ala’s decision, then there can be no question of depression, anxiety, contemplating or committing suicide, etc.
