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

13th Dec 2020 | 28th Rabī'ul Ākhir 1442AH

‎مولاي صل وسلم دائمًا أبدًا

‎على حبيبك خير الخلق كلهم

*عَنْ غَالِبٍ، قَالَ إِنَّا لَجُلُوسٌ بِبَابِ الْحَسَنِ إِذْ جَاءَ رَجُلٌ فَقَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي عَنْ جَدِّي قَالَ بَعَثَنِي أَبِي إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ ائْتِهِ فَأَقْرِئْهُ السَّلاَمَ ‏.‏ قَالَ فَأَتَيْتُهُ فَقُلْتُ إِنَّ أَبِي يُقْرِئُكَ السَّلاَمَ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ‏ "‏ عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَى أَبِيكَ السَّلاَمُ ‏"‏*

_Ghālib said: When we were sitting at al-Ḥasan's door, a man came along. He said: My father told me on the authority of my grandfather, saying: My father sent me to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and said: Go to him and give him greetings (from me). So I went to him and said: My father sends you greetings. He said: Upon you and upon your father be greetings of peace._

The noble companions would try and send their greetings (salām) to Rasūlullah ﷺ. If they were elderly, they would send their sons to convey their salām. Responding to salām is wājib. We will be questioned for refusing to respond. When someone conveys salām to us on behalf of someone else, the Sunnah way to reply is:

*(عليك و عليه السلام)*

_'Alayka wa 'Alayhis Salām'_

(Upon you and him be peace)

If we happen to forget and remember later on, we should make du'ā' to Allah to send peace upon them.

To convey salām to Rasūlullah ﷺ is possible in today's time as well. We can go to his blessed resting place and recite:

*الصلاة والسلام عليك يا رسول الله*

_'Peace and blessings be upon you, O Rasūlullah ﷺ'_

We can also recite this durūd sharīf whilst sitting at home. However, we *must* keep in mind that Rasūlullah ﷺ cannot hear us directly from miles away. Therefore, we make du'ā' to Allah to convey this salām through the angels to Rasūlullah ﷺ. If we think that Rasūlullah ﷺ can hear us directly (when we are not physically present near his resting place), our Īmān will be defective.

From this ḥadīth we also learn that it is sunnah to convey greetings to one another. Salām is a form of giving du'ā' to one another for safety and protection in both the dunyā and ākhirah. It protects one from evil.

𝐏𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐄𝐍𝐂𝐄 𝐃𝐔𝐑𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐓𝐄𝐒𝐓𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐓𝐈𝐌𝐄𝐒

When a calamity befalls us, we should recite from our heart: *إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون* (To Allah ﷻ we belong and to Him we shall return.) If this is internalised and read with conviction, it gives one the ability to endure with patience and contentment.

Calamities endured with patience eliminate our sins and makes us return to Allah ﷻ with a clean slate. We should never complain when afflicted with trials.

Sometimes, during the death of a child we come across people saying, 'why did this happen to me and not anyone else?' This is an extreme level of ungratefulness to Allah ﷻ. It makes Allah ﷻ angry upon the person and can even lead to disbelief in the near future.

The highest level of Īmān is to feel within the heart: _'O Allah ﷻ I am pleased with whatever You have decided for me.'_ This is the way of the Awliyā' and the Ambiyā'. Having such feelings in the heart comes with continuous training and makes one achieve greater ranks without performing extra acts of worship.

Ḥaḍrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thānwi (رحمه الله ) makes mention of a man who suffered from poverty but trained his children to appreciate it, as it was all from Allah ﷻ. Everytime they had no food, they would take it as a day of Eid because they understood they would gain more rewards with this patience.

We should never complain when we are going through a hard time. We should be grateful to Allah ﷻ and thank Him under all circumstances, but still ask for ease. Some pious people were such that one could never tell that they were suffering.

_"Nothing shall ever happen to us except what Allah ﷻ has ordained for us. He is our Protector. And in Allah should the believers put their trust.' (Qur'ān, 9:51)_

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