Submission to the Will of Allah
When Hazrat Ibraheem (alayhis salaam) was told to submit to Allah Ta’ala, he responded that he had submitted himself to the Rabb (Sustainer) of the Worlds... Some Mufassireen (Commentators) say that there are approximately 18 000 worlds.

Allah Ta’ala mentions this incident as follows:

“And remember when his Rabb said to him:  ‘Submit (thy will to Me).’ He said: ‘I submit (my will) to the Lord and Cherisher of the Universe.'” [Surah Al-Baqarah: 131]

After Hazrat Ibraheem (alayhis salaam) made this declaration of submission, there followed many trials and tests.

As a young man, he was faced with opposition from his father, who was an idol-worshipper. When he invited his father to the worship of Allah Ta’ala, his father opposed and threatened him :

He (the father) said: ‘Do you reject my gods, O Ibraheem? If you stop not (this), I will indeed stone you. So get away from me safely before I punish you.’ [Surah Maryam 19:46]

Due to Hazrat Ibraheem’s (alayhis salaam) rejection of idol-worship, and his preaching the message of Allah Ta’ala, he was thrown into the fire by Namrud and his people:

They said: ‘Build him a furnace and throw him into the blazing fire.’ [Surah Saffaat: 97]

They said: 'Burn him and protect your gods if you do (anything at all)!' [Surah Ambiyaa 21:68 ]

It is stated that for an entire month, the people of Namrud collected firewood, which they thereafter lit, fanning it until it became an intense, blazing fire.

The Influence of Television

One of the many sunnats of the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus Salaam) is that of Hayaa – shame and modesty : a quality which is sorely missing in the lives of the majority of Muslims today and which should otherwise be an outstanding characteristic and feature of all Muslims, whether married or un-married.

Television is such an evil that if our society only understood its reality, then they would find no excuse to watch. Its spiritual harm is that it takes away the hayaa and shame of our men, women and children. 

The content of most television programmes is nothing but immodesty and indecency, which invites nothing but immodesty and indecency – into our homes, into our lives and the lives of our children.

However, this truth and reality seems to just pass over the understanding of even those Muslims who have some link with Deen. Many are regular with Salaah, they are seen in the Musjid, they are wearing the garb of the pious and yet they will be the ones to present flimsy and feeble excuses to view television programmes.

Let us consider this situation of sin from the following view – which Alhamdulillah, has been a means of many getting rid of the television.

  • If a person has to knock on your door and tell you : ‘I would like to use your lounge to commit adultery.’

  • Or a group of some friends have to request you : ‘We would like to use your home to gamble and enjoy our liquor.’

  • Or a group of youngsters have to tell you : ‘We have chosen your home as a venue for our partying, dancing, drug-taking and fornicating.’

  • Or a Christian family has to request you : ‘We would like to use your home as a venue for our church ceremony : The marriage of our daughter as well as the baptism of our grandchild. We have already obtained the consent of one of our priests.’

  • Or some idol-worshippers have to suggest : ‘We would like to carry out some of our religious rites in your home. We would like to bring our idols also. You are more than welcome to observe or participate in our rites. ’

ADVICE TO TREASURE:

Nafs and Shaytaan, for whose pleasure we commit so many sins, will not be of any assistance when Izra`eel (‘Alaihis Salaam) will strike the Sword of Death. Can we expect help from avowed enemies? No! Therefore, let us act intelligently by befriending Allah Ta’ala and His Beloved Messenger, Sayyedena Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

By giving up sins for the Pleasure of Allah, Allah Ta’ala reciprocates so much more, by giving us a life of peace and harmony in this world, in the Qabr (Grave) and in the Aakhirah (Hereafter).
