Summary of the majlis
26 March 2020
Hadhrat Maulana Adam Sahib Hafizahullah
لَّقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا
There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.
Rasullullah ﷺ is the best of examples.
We should fear Allah ﷻ the way Rasullullah ﷺ feared Allah ﷻ.
We should follow his example.
Rasullullah ﷺ would fear Allah ﷻ so much that when the wind would blow the colour of his blessed face would change. He would constantly be afraid is this a punishment from Allah ﷻ.
وَلَنُذِيقَنَّهُم مِّنَ الْعَذَابِ الْأَدْنَىٰ دُونَ الْعَذَابِ الْأَكْبَرِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ
وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّن ذُكِّرَ بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِ ثُمَّ أَعْرَضَ عَنْهَا ۚ إِنَّا مِنَ الْمُجْرِمِينَ مُنتَقِمُونَ
And we will surely let them taste the nearer punishment short of the greater punishment that perhaps they will repent.
And who is more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord; then he turns away from them? Indeed We, from the criminals, will take retribution
We should think carefully. We wont know whether we will be here tomorrow. We are in a time where we dont know if many of us will see tomorrow or not. But we are still not taking heed after seeing all of these signs. We dont cry and ask for forgiveness. We dont do tawbah. We disobey Allah ﷻ. We are involved in so many sins. If we dont stop sinning after seeing this then it means our heart has become hard.
The blindness of the eyes isn’t as bad as the blindness of the heart. The world and hereafter is useless to us if our heart is blind.
We need to leave sins. We need to ask for forgiveness from our sins. We need to recite quran and durood.
We need to ask Allah ﷻ to remove the hardness of our hearts.
We know what sins we are involved in. The state of the world now is that a person sins at night and dies during the night. Leave your sins. especially the sins of the night before you go to sleep. We should be remembering Allah ﷻ before we go to sleep and be praying.
A pious person has said it is as though our hearts are dead not just sleeping.
If someone is sleeping and we move their hand or foot etc they will wake up. If someone is dead no matter how much you move them, they wont wake up. We are not waking up. There is no change even though there is a sign from Allah ﷻ.
Its time to contemplate on the changes we have made since the outbreak. If we have not then we need to do something about it
We should lower our gaze. How much have we lowered our gaze. But most of us dont think about leaving this sin. Our hearts have become so hard.
We need to stop being proud.
Those of us who are alive- we dont even think that we are going to die.
Hadhrat Saadi ra says:
جهان ای برادر نماند به کس
دل اندر جهان آفرین بند و بس
Brother this world hasn’t stayed with anyone and nor will it.
مکن تکیه بر ملک دنیا و پشت
که بسیار کس چون تو پرورد و کشت
All of these worldly things that you have will come to an end.
Allah ﷻ says many people have passed before you and there is no sign or memory of them and their wealth.
When someone passes away we remember them for a short while then we forget.
We do so many sins in our family gatherings and weddings etc.
Look at how people are worried about this illness but still not leaving sin.
Before going to sleep we need to think for a short while and think that ‘one day i am going to die’
When we die we are called the deceased. We aren’t called by our name
Shaikh Saadi ra says:
چهل سال عمر عزیزت گذشت مزاج تو از حال طفلی نگشت دوستان عزیز
You have passed 40 years but your actions are still like a childs.
Some of our ages are even more than 40 but we still dont change.
Our hearts are so hard.
The more time we take in changing ourselves the harder our hearts will become.
What is happening today is something to learn from. The whole world is submissive in front of this outbreak. We need to ask for forgiveness.
May Allah ﷻ give us tawfiq.
If we become Allah’s Allah will become ours.
Hadhrat emphasised not to sleep in the state of sin.
Those people who die from this illness will get the status of a martyr but those of us who live we need to take heed.
We need to stop our sins completely. During the day and night. Keep on remembering Allah ﷻ.
Recite durood at least 1000 times and recite Quran m, if not one juzz then half a juzz. Perform our salah on time. If we get negative thoughts to do a sin etc then pray taawwuz.
InshaAllah we will have 2 majlis one on Thursday and one on sunday.
O Allah ﷻ forgive our sins.
O Allah when you take us from this world, take us with the nur of iman.
O Allah end our life on لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله ﷺ
O Allah bring our hearts to life again.
