*Summary of Iṣlāḥī Majlis by Shaykhul-Ḥadīth Ḥaḍrat Mawlāna Ādam ibn Yūsuf Ṣāḥib دامت بركاته*


مولاي صلي وسلم دائمًا أبدًا

على حبيبك خير الخلق كلهم

*عن عبد الله بن عمرو رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "الدُّنْيَا سِجْنُ المُؤْمِنِ وسَنتُهُ وإذا فارق الدنيا، فارق السِّجْنَ والسَّنَةَ"* (رواه في شرح السنة)

_'Abdullah ibn 'Amr رضي الله عنه narrated that Allah's Messenger ﷺ said: "The world is a prison for the believer and is his famine. And when he parts from the world, he stands released from the prison and the famine."_ (Sharḥ us Sunnah)

From amongst the exemplary qualities of the Messenger ﷺ was that his speech was concise yet comprehensive. In the narration above, the meaning behind comparing the believer’s experience in the world to a prison is because a believer will endure many difficulties. The prisoner is kept in a worldly cage whilst the believer is kept preoccupied in worshiping Allah ﷻ with Ṣalāh, Durūd, Zikr etc, even if his self has no desire to do so. A believer also engages in carrying out those things which are not compulsory acts of worship.

Our pious predecessors would make up for any missed voluntary acts of worship during the night. They would do this in order to discipline their soul. This explains the fact that the world is truly a prison for the believer.

Allah ﷻ says in the Qur'ān:

*{فَاسْتَجَابَ لَهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ أَنِّي لَا أُضِيعُ عَمَلَ عَامِلٍ مِّنكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ}*

_‎So Allah ﷻ accepted their prayer (saying), "Surely I shall not put to waste the action of any person from you, be he male or female."_ (3:195)

A common misconception carried by people is that males receive a greater reward (in their acts of worship) than females. However, this Āyah mentions, that this is not the case, as each believer, (male or female) will be rewarded according to their efforts in that act of worship.


When a believer leaves the house, they should recite the following Du'ā:

*بسمِ اللهِ توَكَّلتُ علي اللهِ لَا حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّة إِلاَّ بِاللہِ*

_"In the name of Allah ﷻ, I rely on Allah ﷻ and there is no power or might except from Allah ﷻ."_

InshāAllah the above Du'ā will be a means of protecting us against committing sins.

A believer should be mindful of their gaze, and lower it as much as possible. We must be mindful of unlawfully gazing at the opposite gender who are considered to be “Ghair Mahram”(Members of the opposite gender that are unrelated to us). This instruction applies to both males and females.

Allah ﷻ mentions in the Qur'ān addressing both male and female:

*{قُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَغُضُّوا مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِمْ}*

*{وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ}*

_"Tell the believing men that they should lower their gazes"_ (24:30)

_"And tell the believing women that they should lower their gazes."_ (24:31)

If we finds our gaze has fallen upon a “Ghayr Mahram” then immediately we should repent to Allah ﷻ and seek forgiveness immediately. Similarly, we should also be mindful that we do not make a second glance, neither do we prolong our gaze as is mentioned in the following narration:

*وقال النبي صلي الله عليه وسلم: يا علي! لا تتبع النظرة النظرة او كما قال عليه الصلاة والسلام*

_The Messenger ﷺ said: to Ali رضي الله عنه: "Do not follow up one look with another, O Ali رضي الله عنه"_


Allah ﷻ has compared backbiting in the Qur'ān to eating the dead flesh of one's brother. Allah ﷻ says:

*{وَلَا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم بَعْضًا ۚ أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَن يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ}*

_"Never backbite each other. Does any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother, which you so detest?"_ (49:12)

The world is a prison for a believer but only for a short while, as this life is surely temporary. Thereafter, we will enter the everlasting bliss of Paradise. Life is very short and we will all depart one day. No person has ever lived eternally. Therefore, we must strive as much as possible in goodness and be on guard from inviting the anger of Allah ﷻ. We should always remain conscious about the acceptance of our deeds.

At the time of departing of the soul, Allah ﷻ will send Angels to the believer, and assure the believer of safety and peace. This is promised for those who remained steadfast during their worldly life. Allah ﷻ says:

*{إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ قَالُوا۟ رَبُّنَا ٱللَّهُ ثُمَّ ٱسْتَقَٰمُوا۟ تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلْمَلَٰٓئِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا۟ وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا۟ وَأَبْشِرُوا۟ بِٱلْجَنَّةِ ٱلَّتِى كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ}*

_Indeed, those who have said, "Our Lord is Allahﷻ" and then remained on a right course - the Angels will descend upon them, [saying], "Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised._(46:13)

(May Allah ﷻ include us from amongst them)



As we all know, due to the global pandemic, we are obliged to abide by the laws set by the government of social distancing and staying at home. All of this will only be for our own benefit. Therefore, the masājid remained unopen to the public for three months which has reduced the regular funds the masjid would usually receive.

Ḥaḍrat kindly requests all; male, female, students and graduates to donate £5 to the Masjid monthly. The amount may seem small but its reward is beyond comprehension. Donations can be made via bank transfers and details are as follows:

Jame Trust

Sort Code: 60-15-48

Account Number: 71246851

Through generous donations, the masjid will gain stability and we too will gain the wealth of this world and the Hereafter. Donating to the masjid is a great way of spending in the path of Allah ﷻ, and a means of attaining the help of Allah ﷻ.

Allah ﷻ says in the Qur'ān:

*{يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن تَنصُرُوا اللَّہ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ}*

_"O you who believe! if you help (the cause of) Allah ﷻ, He will help you and make firm your feet."_ (47:7)

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