Our master Prophet Essa (Jesus) son of Mariam (peace be upon them) said,
‘Do not sit with the dead for your heart will die. ‘
Who are the dead? He was asked.
He replied, ‘The avid lovers of the worldly things.’

Baba Fareed ud Deen Masud Ganjshakar (Allah have mercy on him) usually avoided writing letters of recommendation. However, a person insisted repeatedly.
So Baba sahib wrote,
‘I refer his mater first to Allah and then to you. If you will grant anything to him, the real Giver is Allah and you will get credit for it. If you do not give him anything, the real preventer is Allah and you are helpless in this matter. ‘

Insha-Allah from today at 6:30 PM (Jeddah time).
Haji Shakeel Ahmed (Allah preserve & protect him) from Mumbai mentioned,
‘Most of us are trying to be successful in an examination in which none can succeed. That is, worshipping Allah as it befit’s Him. This is impossible to do as Allah’s majesty exceeds our limited intellect and whatever worship we do it can never ever befit Him.
And we ignore the main examination we are required to succeed as per Allah’s commands. That is fulfilling the rights of our fellow human beings, especially those near and dear, like parents, spouses, children, etc.
We need to look into this and rectify our mistakes. ‘

Mufti Mohammed Shafi (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘The prescription for becoming a friend of Allah (wali) has three components,
1. Companionship (suhba) of a friend of Allah
2. Following his instructions
3. (Excessive) Remembrance of Allah ‘
Ma’arif al Quran, volume 4, page 550
An individual inquired regarding the ruling of Umrah being necessary (wajib) for a taxi driver traveling frequently to the blessed city of Makkah. If in this particular case an exemption was possible (from Hanafi fiqh ruling).
Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Taqi Usmani (Allah protect & preserve him) replied,
‘Yes, due to the hardship involved this individual can act on the non-Hanafi ruling and not perform Umrah on his each and every frequent visit.’
Another individual inquired about acting on the non-Hanafi ruling of trimming few hairs instead of cutting or shaving the whole scalp.
Sayyidi wa sanadi replied,
‘No. Follow the Hanafi ruling (shaving completely or cutting one fourth the length of the hairs on the scalp provided they are longer than the space between two interphalangeal joints of a finger). There is no hardship in cutting or shaving the hairs.’
Masjid e Nabaawi, gate #90, after esha, Friday 19 February 2016
After the congregational maghrib salah Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Taqi Usmani (Allah protect & preserve him) went to the older section of the Prophet’s mosque (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him). Making sure that he was within the limits of the original mosque (near to the blessed raudha just behind the riyadh al jannah). There he prayed the awabeen salah with extreme devotion. The standing (qiyam), bowing (ruku‘) and prostrations (sujood) were exceptionally prolong. This was followed by a long dua.
‘And remember the name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him with exclusive devotion’Al-Muzzammil : 8
Those accompanying him were unable to keep pace with him and finished their awabeen routine early.
In spite of being a traveler (musafer) Sayyidi completed his routine. Even with more devotion.
It is an example for us to emulate.

Shaikh Jalal ud Deen Thanesari (Allah have mercy on him d. 989 Hijri) said,
‘The (spiritual) ailments of heart (mind) are from three sources.
1. (Useless) Self talking (hadith e nafs). It is the thinking that is both with intention and volition.
2. The (potentially) threatening (khatra) thinking. These are the unintentional random thoughts. (If one actively gets involved in them.)
3. The focus of heart on things other-than-Allah (ghair)’
Irshad at Talibeen, page 14
The excessive mindful remembrance of Allah done as instructed by spiritual masters is to fix these issues.
Please, browse through the previously published posts. There are more than two thousand. May Allah make them beneficial for all of us. Amin!
