Signs of the sweetness of Imaan

 

subheading-iconEnjoyment in Ibaadat


The acquisition of the Sweetness of Imaan brings immense enjoyment in the Ibaadah undertaken. The pleasure a person finds in his Salaah, impels him to delay his Sajdas. His Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) of Allah Ta’ala emanates from the deep recesses of his heart, intoxicating him. The requirement for this intoxication and ecstasy is neither wine nor worldly love; the requirement for this ‘high’ is neither heroine nor cocaine; it is the remembrance of his beloved Allah.

When he recites the Qur’aan Sharief, then it is as if he is conversing and communicating with his Rabb. The speech of Allah Ta’ala, which he recites, deeply impresses upon his heart and establishes a profounder and stronger Imaan within him. With a deep hearted enjoyment, he believes that his Allah is listening to His own Kalaam (speech) from the tongue of His sinful servant.

The mercy and kindness of Allah Ta’ala is such that despite us having used and abused the tongue in gheebat, lies, false oaths and Qasms and so many other evils, Allah Ta’ala still grants us the ‘taufeeq’ to read His Kalaam. He would have given it to the angels to read, because to read such pure and untainted speech, we require tongues which are sinless.

The objective will not be to complete as many paras or Qur’aans as is possible and thus read at breakneck speed, hastily and disrespectfully. There will be calm, dignity and beauty which will adorn the Qur’aan Sharief and which will win one special ‘audience’ from Allah Ta’ala.

When expending his money in the path of Allah Ta’ala, in charities and Zakaat, then this person does not feel financially burdened. There is an enjoyment in this person’s generosity, kindness, in his concern for the poor and needy and in the fulfillment of the rights of his kith and kin, neighbours and others.

Because every sphere of his life has become an Ibaadat, his entire life is blissful. When a person does any good deed, for the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala, then the heart is rewarded immediately with pleasure and joy.

subheading-iconSuppressing the Nafs


Another sign indicating that a person has tasted the sweetness of Imaan, is that this person will overcome and suppress all his evil and carnal desires. He will not succumb to his haraam passions and desires. He will regard them as cursed passions; the fulfillment of which will earn him the displeasure of his Beloved Allah.

“We regard such pleasures
As worthy of being cursed,
By which, O friends,
My Lord becomes displeased.”

When evil thoughts enter the mind and evil desires enter the heart, then we should overcome them by ignoring them and not entertaining them. Let them pass by, but pay no attention to them. We should not invite these thoughts and lay out the dastarkhan (table) for them and amiably say: “O you wonderful thoughts, please remain in my heart for a long time because I am deriving much enjoyment from this visit of yours.”

It is natural that these thoughts and desires will come ... this is expected, but it is sinful to entertain them. At such times, we should immediately focus our attention on something permissible.
