Imaan

Untitled Document

It is mentioned that some of the Sahabah once presented themselves to Nabi and said : “Our condition is that sometimes we experience such evil thoughts and sentiments in our hearts that it is most painful even to mention them.”

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) enquired : “Is it really so ?”

They replied : “Yes, this is our condition.”

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) exclaimed : “But that is pure faith.” ...  meaning, that to feel grieved and distressed at such thoughts and sentiments is a sign of good Imaan.

In another narration, a person said to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) : “Sometimes such wicked ideas come to my mind that I would prefer to be burnt down and reduced to charcoal than to give utterance to them.”

Nabi replied : “Praise be to Allah who turned back the matter towards thought and sentiment.” ... meaning, that it is the grace of Allah Ta’ala that these thoughts and desires were not accepted and adopted but remained as is.

Thus a person who has achieved this sweetness of Imaan, will not act upon his evil desires and thoughts. He will burn these evil desires in the furnace of Taqwa and light up his heart with the Noor of Taqwa.

 

subheading-iconFigurative beauty


A beautiful woman passes by and one happens to cast an accidental  glance at her. Thereafter a strong desire plagues at the heart of the person and he feels that he simply cannot forego the sight of such a beauty. What is he to do ? If he suppresses this desire …

“ I will not look, I will not look,
Never will I look at one,
Looking upon whom,
displeases my Lord.”

 … then Allah Ta’ala rewards him on this sacrifice.

Allah Ta’ala has stated in a Hadith-e-Qudsi : “Verily evil glancing is an arrow from the poisonous arrows of Shaytaan. Whosoever fears Me (Allah) and refrains from it will receive from Me such Imaan, the sweetness of which he will taste (feel) in his heart.”

If, on the other hand, he appeases the evil desires of his nafs, and continues glancing lustfully at the woman, then the end results of having displeased Allah Ta’ala will be restlessness, restlessness and more restlessness.

Allah Ta’ala promises a life of restlessness, difficulty and anxiety for those who indulge in sin.

Allah Ta’ala states in Surah Ta Ha : “Whosoever turns away from My reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur`aan nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship ...”
