Hidayat

Untitled Document

In the different fields and spheres of Deen, there is much aspiration to be found in those that are rendering service of Deen.  The Jamaat goes out for gusht, ta’leem and tabligh, desiring to bring Deen into the lives of others as well. The Asaatiza at the Madrassahs and Darul Ulooms, impart ta’leem, endeavour to educate their students and aspire to mould the ways and lives of their students. Likewise others, in whatever effort they make, they wish to see change, reformation, acceptance and implementation.

Sometimes, an Aalim teaching at a Darul Uloom may desire to reform a particular student or a Sheikh may desire to reform a certain mureed and they thus make a concerted effort in Da’wah, Tarbiyyah, etc. towards the change of the student or the mureed. Yet, despite the effort made, the student or mureed does not change. As a result, the teacher or Sheikh sometimes becomes despondent.           

A very important incident in the life of Nabi is a lesson to heed : Rasulullah’s uncle, Abu Talib, had been like a father to Rasulullah, bringing him up and caring for him. When Rasulullah declared his prophethood, then Abu Talib supported him with everything which he had at his disposal. As such, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) loved his uncle very much and encouraged him to accept Islam.

When Abu Talib was on his deathbed, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said to his uncle : “O my uncle! Declare (your faith in) ‘La ilaaha Illallaah’, so that I may argue for you before Allah on the Day of Judgement.”  Despite the effort made and the encouragement given by Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) , Abu Talib did not accept Islam and died on Kufr.

Allah Ta’ala informed Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) : “ Surely you cannot guide whom you love, but Allah guides whom He pleases; and He knows best those who receive guidance. ”

Even though Allah Ta’ala is the one who guides, the pre-condition of being recipient to Hidayat is to WANT hidayat and make a concerted effort in that direction, otherwise Allah Ta’ala states that if a person is not interested in being guided, then He will not thrust guidance down such a person’s throat.

Nevertheless, if Allah Ta’ala so wills then He will use the Ustaadh, Sheikh, and others rendering service to Deen, to be a means of the Hidayat for, sometimes, not just one person but millions of people.

Our endeavour is to make the correct effort and thereafter trust completely in Allah Ta’ala. Depression and restlessness will not draw near to the heart which has resigned itself to the will and wish of Allah Ta’ala.The heart of such a person is akin to a garden.                                                  

The outward conditions surrounding the person could be difficult, but the heart of that person is akin to a flower blooming amidst thorns. Allah Ta’ala grants this person peace and contentment, because of the Tafweez (i.e. accepting Allah Ta’ala’s will) adopted.
