Durood majlis

Shaykh-ul-Ḥadīth Ḥaḍrat Mawlāna Ādam Ṣāḥib DB

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم :إذا مرضَ العبدُ أو سافرَ كتبَ لَهُ من العملِ ما كانَ يعملُهُ وَهوَ صحيحٌ مقيمٌ

Abu Mūsa al-Ash‘ari (رضي الله عنه) reported: The Messenger of Allah (‎ﷺ) said: "If a person falls ill or travels, he shall be credited with whatever good deeds he used to perform while at home and in good health."

If you had a habit of reciting surah Yaseen daily, but have become unwell and unable to read or unable to find time whilst travelling, the rewards continue as usual.

It’s the same if you perform nawafil and the sunnah ghair muakkadah salah but are unable to do so, due to a reason out of your hands, then you will still receive the rewards.

This is why we should try hard and make a firm intention that we stay steadfast on our ma’moolat.

Hakeem akhtar sahib ؒ  has even said that the day you leave your ma’moolat don’t eat.

Hadhrat DB’s teacher who had the title of ‘shaykhul adab’ his name was molana Izaz Ali. He had mastered many different types of Islamic literature. His mother passed away from an illness.

The janaza was after zuhr salah and he had a lesson in the madrasa at about 10am. The students didn’t think he would teach the lesson, but he came to the lesson and students mentioned to him, saying your mother has just passed away do you not want to rest or pray near her. He said I have been to see her already and today was the day that i needed to teach so i send the rewards for her (isaale thawaab) and what will be more rewarding than teaching the lesson.

Noone can be saved from death. Even the prophets passed away so everyone will pass away. `Abdullah bin `Umar ra mentions:

Once the Prophet (ﷺ) led us in the `Isha' prayer during the last days of his life and after finishing it (the prayer) (with Taslim) he said: "Do you realize (the importance of) this night?" Nobody present on the surface of the earth tonight will be living after the completion of one hundred years from this night.”

We should make sure we stick to our ma’moolat, whether it is praying something or teaching. If you don’t have ma’moolat then make sure you set some for yourself.

We shouldn’t be so sure of our life, we never know when we can go. We should make an strict intention that we will pray our ma’moolat. Some even fall unwell that they can’t even move their lips. We should thank Allah we can move our lips.

It has been written about the Ulama that they didn’t stop their ma’moolat until they the day they passed away.

There was a famous pious person who would perform salah properly all his life. Once he was unwell and unable to dress himself, his khadim came to help him get dressed. When he took his clothes off he took off his right side first. The shaykh realised straight away and told the khadim to take the left side off as the sunnah is to do so.

The pious people would not leave one sunnah even at the time of passing away and we leave one sunnah thinking of it as small. This is how we can achieve closeness to Rasullullah ‎ﷺ.

It doesn’t mean we need to do the same when we are unwell. But at least when we are in good health we should try to follow the sunnah.

Hadhrat’s first shaykh was Shah Waseeullah ؒ   Hadhrat was bai’ah to him at the latter stage of his life. He was weak and his face was pale. But when he had someone come for bai’at he was happy and so energetic like a lion.

Don’t lose hope. Don’t lose hope in the mercy of Allah ‎ﷻ.

وَلَا تَا۟يْـَٔسُوا۟ مِن رَّوْحِ ٱللَّهِ

and do not lose hope in the mercy of Allah.


When you see someone unwell and in pain don’t see him as finished and in pain. See him as a believer, who is content.

Maulana Ahmed Lahori ؒ  would cry a lot. When he passed away someone saw him in a dream and he said that when I passed away Allah said you’ve cried enough now, don’t cry anymore. All the people buried in this cemetery are forgiven for you.

Make sure we recite our ma’moolat. In the morning recite yaseen. In the evening recite surah mulk, surah alif lam meem sajda, surah waqiah and the duas for morning and evening in the kitab that has been compiled doesn’t even take ten minutes.

Allah ‎ﷻ Himself says He is not an oppressor.

مَا يَفْعَلُ اللَّهُ بِعَذَابِكُمْ إِنْ شَكَرْتُمْ وَآمَنْتُمْ

What would Allah get by punishing you, if you are grateful and believe? Allah is Appreciating, All-Knowing.


May Allah ﷻ grant us the ability to practise on everything that has been said. Āmīn
