THE ‘MOTHER ATTRIBUTES’ OF ALLAH ALMIGHTY

0

“…the government of God Almighty is a perfect administration, and possesses a limitless treasury. There is no shortage in His resources. He grants success to anyone and everyone who acts accordingly. Though He rewards virtue and good deeds, He also covers up the various weaknesses and shortcomings of man. He is Oft-Returning with forgiveness and Forbearing…”

Continued from yesterday

However, the God presented by Islam is deserving of all praiseworthy attributes and this is why it is He Who is the True Bestower. He is the Gracious and He confers His grace without any action on the part of an agent. He is the Master of the Day of Judgement, as I have stated, and He grants success. A worldly government can never take it upon themselves that each and every person who has a Bachelor of Arts would definitely be guaranteed employment. However, the government of God Almighty is a perfect administration, and possesses a limitless treasury. There is no shortage in His resources. He grants success to anyone and everyone who acts accordingly. Though He rewards virtue and good deeds, He also covers up the various weaknesses and shortcomings of man. He is Oft-Returning with forgiveness and Forbearing. Allah the Exalted is privy to thousands of faults in His servants, but He does not reveal them. A time does come when man becomes bold and continues to increase in his vices, without deriving any benefit from the forbearance of God and His covering up their shortcomings; in fact, he begins to grow stronger in an atheistic vein. It is then that the indignation of God no longer permits for such an audacious person to go unseized and so they are disgraced. Maulvi Abdullah Ghaznavi was given a revelation in relation to Muhammad Hussain that he possessed a certain weakness. Muhammad Hussain asked him to disclose it, but he responded by saying that the forbearing nature of Allah Almighty prevented him from doing so. Then, Maulvi Abdullah Ghaznavi also saw a dream in which Muhammad Hussain’s clothes were torn; this dream has now come true”.

EXHORT ONE ANOTHER TO BE STEADFAST

0

“…only one who is patient attains to a station where their heart is opened. One who does not exhibit patience seeks to rule over God and does not desire to remain under His rule. An insolent and bold person of this nature, who does not fear the glory and greatness of God Almighty, will be deprived and cut asunder…”

“Furthermore, their practice is ¹ tawaasaw bis-sabri, i.e. they exhort one another to be steadfast; that is to say, they exhort and advise others with patience. They do not become furious in an instant. If a Muslim cleric or leader becomes an Imam and a guide, and is quickly enraged, and if he does not possess the strength to act with tolerance and patience, why does he harm others? Another meaning of the above is that a person who does not patiently listen to advice, cannot gain any benefit. Our opponents do not come forward with a tolerant heart, and do not present their concerns with patience. In fact, their state of affairs is such that they do not even wish to look at the relevant book. They raise a commotion and seek to cloak the truth. How then can such people derive any benefit? What characterised Abu Jahl and Abu Lahab? It was this very impatience and frustration. They would demand that if you have come from God, then cause springs to flow before us. These unfortunate people did not show patience and were ultimately destroyed; after all, the Zubaida Canal did ultimately reach Mecca. Similarly, our opponents also demand that I should pray for them and it should instantly be fulfilled, deeming this to be the criterion of my truth or falsehood. They will present a few things which they would like to see happen and say that if they can be made to occur, they will accept, but they do not hold up any conditions for themselves. Alas! It is these very people who represent those described in ² laa yakhaafu ‘uqbaahaa (And God cared not for the consequences thereof ). Remember, only one who is patient attains to a station where their heart is opened. One who does not exhibit patience seeks to rule over God and does not desire to remain under His rule. An insolent and bold person of this nature, who does not fear the glory and greatness of God Almighty, will be deprived and cut asunder”.

THE OPPONENTS OF ONE DIVINELY COMMISSIONED BY ALLAH LOSE THEIR FAITH

0

“…the stated facts evidently demonstrate that these people do not oppose me, but rather they oppose the commandments of God Almighty. It is for this very reason that the opponents of one appointed by Allah lose their faith. It is clear that my opponents are actually at war with God Almighty…”

“The state of our opponents is one that may be apprehended to result in a loss of faith, because such people deem a good man to be evil and one commissioned by Allah, a liar. This is to war with God Almighty. It is a clear fact that God Almighty has commissioned me and sent me to the world as the Promised Messiah. Those who oppose me do not oppose me, they oppose God, for many of them held me in a position of esteem before I made my claim. Many such people considered it worthy of spiritual reward and a source of pride to hold my water pot and pour from it so that I could perform my ablution. There were many from among them who insisted upon swearing an oath of allegiance to me. But when this community was established in the name of God by His very command, these very same people stood up in opposition against me. This clearly demonstrates that their heartfelt enmity was not towards me, but towards God Almighty. For if they had a sincere relationship with God Almighty, their piety, virtue and fear of God demanded that when I made my claim, they ought to have come forth to accept my announcement; they ought to have prostrated in gratitude before God and welcomed me—but no. They took up their arms and set forth pushing in opposition to such an extent that they called me a disbeliever and a heretic; they named me the Anti-Christ. Alas! These foolish people fail to understand that as for the man who hears the divine words Qul innii umirtu wa ana awwalu-l-muslimiin (Say, ‘I am the first to turn towards Allah under His command in this age) and Anta minnii bimanzilati taw-hiidii watafriidii (You are to Me like My Unity and Uniqueness) why should he care in the least for the abuse and bitter language of such people? It is a shame that these foolish people do not even realise that disbelief and faith do not relate to this world; in fact, they relate to God Almighty. As far as God Almighty is concerned, He attests to my being a believer and divinely commissioned. Why then would I care about this absurd behaviour? Therefore, the stated facts evidently demonstrate that these people do not oppose me, but rather they oppose the commandments of God Almighty. It is for this very reason that the opponents of one appointed by Allah lose their faith. It is clear that my opponents are actually at war with God Almighty. If I am advancing towards light, and it is certain that I am, because countless signs have been and continue to be manifested by God Almighty in my support, and these signs are descending from heaven like rain, then it is also certain that my opponents are falling into darkness. Luminosity and divine light attract the Holy Spirit, while darkness moves one closer to Satan; in this manner, the opposition of a saint results in the loss of faith and joins a person with the worst of companions.

In short, a person becomes righteous and reformed when they attain to the ranks of perfect practice. It is stated in Suratul ‘Asr: Illalladhiina aamanuu wa’amilus-saalihaat (Except those who believe and do good works), and the words aamanu allude to the perfection of one’s knowledge, while the words ‘amilus-saalihat guide a person towards the perfection of practice. Wisdom also has two aspects: firstly, knowledge ought to be perfect and complete; and secondly, action must also be excellent and free from deficiency”.

OBEY ME AND FOLLOW ME

0

“…Until your heart receives the divine light which is conveyed through the channel of the Divine, your soul cannot be purified. The breast of man is the place where divine light descends and this is why it is referred to as the House of Allah, as it were. The important task is none other than to shatter the idols that sit within it, until nothing but Allah, and Allah alone remains…”

“In short, to cleanse and purify this House of God from idols, a jihad is required. I am to show you the way of this jihad and I assure you that if you act upon this, you will crush these idols. The way I show you is not of my own improvisation; in fact, God has commissioned me to inform you of it. What is the way? Obey me and follow me. This voice is not a new voice. To purge Mecca of its idols, even the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said:

¹ Qul inkuntum tuhibbuuna-llaha fat-tabi’uunii yuhbibukumu-llahu

Say, ‘If you love Allah, follow me: then will Allah love you.

In the same manner, if you follow me, you shall grow able to break your inner idols and purify your breast of the multitude of idols that fill it. There is no need for forty-day retreats in order to purify your soul. The companions of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, did not engage in such retreats, or perform the Sufi ‘invocation of the saw’ (dhikr-e-arra), or engage in meditative practices of ‘negation and affirmation’ (nafi-o-asbat), and so on. Quite the contrary, they had something entirely different at their disposal. They were engrossed in obedience to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. The divine light that the Holy Prophet(sa) possessed was carried to the hearts of the companions through the arteries of obedience, and would crush all thoughts that were besides Allah. Instead of darkness, their breasts would be filled with divine light. Bear well in mind that even today, the same state of affairs is applicable. Until your heart receives the divine light which is conveyed through the channel of the Divine, your soul cannot be purified. The breast of man is the place where divine light descends and this is why it is referred to as the House of Allah, as it were. The important task is none other than to shatter the idols that sit within it, until nothing but Allah, and Allah alone remains. It is narrated in a Hadith that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: Allahu Allahu fii as-haabii i.e. nothing but Allah, and Allah alone resides in the hearts of my companions. Allah being the sole entity that resides in one’s heart does not imply that a person ought to subscribe to the concept of Oneness of Being (wahdat-ul-wujud), suggesting, that every dog and donkey in the world is Allah, God-forbid. The actual intent is to allude to the fact that in every action of man, the pleasure of Allah Almighty ought to be the sole objective that is sought, and nothing else. This rank can never be attained without the grace of Allah Almighty.

² ‘No task is difficult for the valiant’.

THE RIGHT PATH

0

“…a person becomes wholly devoted to God, as was the case with Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq(ra.) Gradually, a salih (or a virtuous person) progresses until they attain to a station of rest and it is here that they experience ‘the expansion of their breast’, just as the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him was addressed: Alam nashrah laka sadrak Have We not opened for thee thy bosom…”

“The fact of the matter is that in a state of salah (i.e. being sound or pious), it is incumbent upon man to be pure from every kind of corruption, whether it be in relation to doctrines or deeds. For example, a person’s body is healthy when all its primary constituents are in their normal state, and there is no excess or deficiency. If even a single constituent abnormally increases, the body becomes ill. Similarly, the health of a person’s soul depends upon an equilibrium. It is this very equilibrium which is alluded to in the Holy Qur’an by the term as-siraat-ul-mustaqiim (i.e. the right path). In a state of salah, a person becomes wholly devoted to God, as was the case with Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq(ra.) Gradually, a salih (or a virtuous person) progresses until they attain to a station of rest and it is here that they experience ‘the expansion of their breast’, just as the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him was addressed:

Alam nashrah laka sadrak

Have We not opened for thee thy bosom.

It is beyond me to express in words this state of ‘the expansion of the breast’.

TWO CLASSES MENTIONED IN SURATUL-‘ASR

0

“…A righteous person advances from the state where the self incites to evil and enters a state where the soul rebukes him for committing evil. This is why a distinguishing feature of the righteous is that they ‘establish’ or ‘set upright’ their formal Prayer, as it were, because in this too there is a kind of battle that ensues…”

“Once again, I return to my original discussion and state that two groups are alluded to in Suratul-‘Asr. Firstly, there is the class of the holy and pious, and then there are the disbelievers and sinners. The disbelieving and sinful class have been alluded to as follows:

Inna-l-insaana lafii khusr

Surely, man is in a state of loss.

Then, the other class of people have been distinguished as follows:

Illalladhiina aamanuu wa’amilus-saalihaat

That is to say, there is a group that is in a state of loss, but not the believers and those who do good deeds. From this we learn that those who are disbelievers and those who do not perform good deeds are in a state of loss. The Arabic word salah (i.e. being sound or pious), is only applicable where there are no traces whatsoever of fasad (which in Arabic means to be corrupt or devoid of virtue). A person can never become a salih (i.e. a virtuous person), until they cleanse themselves of ignoble and corrupt doctrines, and then their actions also become free from corruption. The word muttaqi (i.e. a righteous person), is in the measure of the form ifti’al and this form is used to convey a meaning of ‘forced or strained effort.’ This demonstrates that a righteous person is forced to struggle immensely and exert an effort in doing good; and in this state, the soul reproves him for committing evil. When a person is living a beastly life, they are subject to the self that incites to evil, but when they emerge triumphant over the state where struggle is required, they enter a state of rest. A righteous person advances from the state where the self incites to evil and enters a state where the soul rebukes him for committing evil. This is why a distinguishing feature of the righteous is that they ‘establish’ or ‘set upright’ their formal Prayer, as it were, because in this too there is a kind of battle that ensues. Satanic whisperings and doubts come forth again and again to terrify a person, but they are not perturbed, and these satanic whisperings do not make them helpless. Such a one seeks assistance from God Almighty incessantly, and cries before God and weeps, until finally they prevail. Similarly, when it comes to spending in the way of God, Satan holds them back and makes it seem to them as if spending in the cause of Allah and extravagance are one in the same, even though there is a world of difference between the two. A person who is extravagant wastes away their wealth, but a person who spends in the way of Allah, is returned everything that they spend in far greater proportion. This is why God Almighty states:

Mimmaa razaqnaahum yunfiquun.

They spend out of what We have provided for them”.

THE PURPOSE OF MAN’S CREATION IS WORSHIP

0

“…worship is The sole purpose for which man has been created and it is this very instructional of which man is negligent. I do not say that you should abandon your worldly businesses, or forsake your wife and children to retreat to a jungle or a mountain. Islam does not deem this to be permissible and Islam does not allow asceticism. Islam desires to make man active, diligent and able. Therefore, I say that you ought to engage in your businesses with toil and labour…”

“Hence, it is immensely important for you to understand that the very purpose for which God Almighty created you is so that you may worship Him and become devoted to Him. The world must not be the centre of your aspirations. I reiterate this single point again and again because in my estimation, worship is The sole purpose for which man has been created and it is this very instructional of which man is negligent. I do not say that you should abandon your worldly businesses, or forsake your wife and children to retreat to a jungle or a mountain. Islam does not deem this to be permissible and Islam does not allow asceticism. Islam desires to make man active, diligent and able. Therefore, I say that you ought to engage in your businesses with toil and labour.It is narrated in a Hadith that a person who owns land but does not use it for agriculture, will be accountable in the sight of God. Therefore, if someone understands this instruction to mean that they should detach themselves from the affairs of the world, they are mistaken. Not at all. The fact of the matter is that you ought to ensure that the pleasure of God Almighty is intended in the business that you engage in, and you must not ignore His will to give precedence to your own motives and emotions.

Therefore, if the objective of a person’s life is to go on in a life of ease and comfort, and if the pinnacle of their achievement is nothing more than eating, drinking, clothing and sleep, and no room for God Almighty remains in their heart, then remember that such a person turns away from the nature with which God has made them. As a result, such a one will gradually waste away their faculties. It is an obvious fact that when we acquire a thing for a certain purpose, if it does not fulfil that very purpose, we consider it to be useless. For example, if one obtains a piece of wood to make a chair or table, but it proves to be unusable, it will be used as firewood. Similarly, the actual purpose of man’s creation is the worship of Allah, but if man alters their inherent disposition on account of external means and superficial relations, rendering it useless, then God Almighty does not care for such people. It is to this very fact which the following verse refers:

Qul maa ya’bau bikum Rabbii lawlaa du’aaikum

Say to the disbelievers: ‘But for your prayer to Him my Lord would not care for you.

On a previous occasion, I mentioned that I saw a dream in which I was standing in a jungle. There was a ditch that ran from East to West and sheep were laid on its edge. Each sheep was subdued by a butcher holding a knife over their necks. The butchers were looking towards the sky and I was walking near them. Upon beholding this sight, I understood that the butchers were waiting for a command from heaven. Then, I recited this verse:

Qul maa ya’bau bikum Rabbii lawlaa du’aaikum

Say to the disbelievers: ‘But for your prayer to Him my Lord would not care for you.

The moment they heard me, they ran their knives, saying: ‘What are you? Nothing but refuse-eating sheep.’ Therefore, God Almighty cares for the life of a person who fears Him; He holds their life dear. As for the one who acts against His will, God casts him into hell.

Therefore, it is necessary for each and every one to free their soul from the slavery of Satan. Just as chloroform induces sleep, in the same manner Satan ruins a person and sends them into a sleep of negligence. It is in this very state that Satan finishes such-like a person”.

A LIFE DEVOTED TO GOD

0

“…a person who is referred to as the friend of Allah Almighty, and whose life God tends to, is one whose every action and inaction is determined by first consulting the Book of God. Such a person turns to the Book of Allah in preference to their own thoughts and desires, and seeks counsel from it…”

“If a person’s life is devoted to God, then God Himself will protect it. There is a Hadith in Bukhari that when a person develops a bond of love with God Almighty, God becomes their limbs. It is stated in another narration that this relationship of friendship grows to such an extent that God becomes the hands and feet, etc. of such people; He even becomes the tongue with which they speak. In actual fact, it is when a person cleanses themselves of their inner passions and adheres to the will of God, abandoning their own ego, none of their actions are unlawful; in fact, each and every one of their actions are in line with the will of God. Even more so, God Almighty declares their actions to be those of God Himself. This is a level of divine nearness which has caused those who have not fully traversed the stations in the spiritual quest, to stumble. In other cases, those who are unaware of matters divine, and have failed to understand the true meaning of divine nearness, have misconstrued the issue at hand and have invented the concept of Oneness of Being (wahdat-ul-wujud). One should never forget also that whenever a person falls to trial, it is because they act in a way that is not in accordance with the will of God; God Almighty desires something else. Such a one is subdued by their own desires and does not adhere to the will of God. However, a person who is referred to as the friend of Allah Almighty, and whose life God tends to, is one whose every action and inaction is determined by first consulting the Book of God. Such a person turns to the Book of Allah in preference to their own thoughts and desires, and seeks counsel from it.

The narration goes on to state that Allah the Exalted feels a great degree of hesitation in taking the soul of such a person. In reality, Allah Almighty is free from hesitating. What this actually means is that such people are given death due to a certain wisdom; indeed, it is due to a grand wisdom that they are taken to the next world. Were it not for this, God holds very dear the life of such a person. Hence, if a person’s life is not such that God Almighty feels a hesitation in taking it to Himself, then such a life is worse than that of animals. Many people can be sustained on a goat, and its hide also proves useful, but man is of no use, not even after death. The effect of a righteous man, however, is felt by even his progeny and they too benefit from him. In fact, such a person does not die at all; when physical death overtakes him, he is granted a new life. David, on whom be peace, states: ‘I was a child and now I have grown old. I have never seen a godly man in a demeaned state, nor have I seen the children of such people begging for scraps.’ That is to say that God Almighty even takes it upon Himself to support the children of a God-fearing person. It is also mentioned in a Hadith that a wrongdoer is cruel to his own family as well, because they are affected by his evil”.

THE SPIRITUAL POWER OF THE HOLY PROPHET(SA)

0

“…it is possible for an individual to make themselves upright and fully obey the commandments of Allah Almighty. However, it is not easy to mould others in this way. This demonstrates the lofty grandeur and the spiritual power of the Noble Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. How wonderfully did the Holy Prophet(sa) fulfil this commandment…”

Allah the Exalted states: Fastaqim kamaa umirta, i.e. become upright, and free yourselves of all forms of evil action and crookedness, then shall I be pleased with you; become upright yourself and make others the same. How difficult was it for the Arabs to make people upright. When the people asked, the Holy Prophet(sa) said that Surah Hud had made him old, because this injunction placed a very heavy responsibility upon him. As far as a person’s own being is concerned, it is possible for an individual to make themselves upright and fully obey the commandments of Allah Almighty. However, it is not easy to mould others in this way. This demonstrates the lofty grandeur and the spiritual power of the Noble Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. How wonderfully did the Holy Prophet(sa) fulfil this commandment. He produced a pious community of noble companions to whom it was said:

Kuntum khayra ummatin ukhrijat lin-naas

You are the best people raised for the good of mankind.

Then, these same people were given the glad tiding:

Radhiyallahu ‘amhum waradhuu ‘anhu

Allah is well pleased with them, and they are well pleased with Him.

Before the Holy Prophet(sa) passed away, no hypocrite was left in Medina, the Holy City. Hence, the Holy Prophet(sa) received such success that its parallel cannot be found in the life accounts of any other Prophet. By this, the purpose of Allah Almighty was to teach that one must not remain limited to mere words and statements. For if we remain confined to mere words, statements and outward display, then what will differentiate us from others and how shall we be any better? You ought to exhibit a shining practical example that others find acceptable, because until your example possesses a true radiance, others will never accept it. Can anyone be attracted to a dirty and filthy thing? If even one stain is evident on a person’s clothes, they do not look appealing. Similarly, until your inner-state is pure and shining, no one will hold you in esteem. Everyone admires things of fine quality and in the same manner, until your morals are of a high standing, you shall not be able to achieve anything”.

A STRING OF REFORMERS WITHIN THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY

0

“…He has raised a man with His own hand and that person is I who speaks to you now, in your midst. It is time for the descent of the mercy of God Almighty. So supplicate, seek steadfastness, and invoke blessings upon the Holy Prophet(sa) often, for invoking blessings upon him is a powerful means by which to attain steadfastness…”

“At this instance another point ought to be remembered as well. The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was always destined to pass away, and in the apparent sense, an exemplar and instrument for the manifestation of God was to leave the world. Therefore, Allah the Exalted instituted a simple method: Qul inkuntum tuhibbuuna Allaha fattabi’uu ii (Say, ‘If you love Allah, follow me). This is by virtue of the fact that the beloved of Allah is always mustaqim (i.e. straight and right). A person who possesses a ‘crooked’ nature can never become a beloved of Allah. In order to increase and invigorate within our hearts the love of Allah’s Messenger, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, it is compulsory to invoke blessings upon the Holy Prophet(sa) in each of the formal Prayers, so that a steadfast means for the acceptance of this prayer may become available to us. It is an accepted fact that the being of the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, will remain alive in the form of spiritual reflection until the Day of Resurrection. The mystics say that the Reformers (Mujaddidin) are named after the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him; that is to say, the name of the Holy Prophet(sa) is given to them in a certain way to indicate that they are a reflection of him.

The Shia view that the system of attaining to the rank of sainthood came to an end at Hazrat Ali, may Allah honour him, is absolutely false. The excellences which Allah Almighty invested in the institution of prophethood reached their pinnacle collectively in the person of our Perfect Guide, the Holy Prophet(sa). Now, for all times to come, the Mujaddidin will continue to spiritually reflect these excellences throughout the world. Allah the Exalted will make this phenomenon continue until the Day of Resurrection.

I proclaim once again that even now God Almighty has not left the world deprived and He has established a dispensation. Verily, He has raised a man with His own hand and that person is I who speaks to you now, in your midst. It is time for the descent of the mercy of God Almighty. So supplicate, seek steadfastness, and invoke blessings upon the Holy Prophet(sa) often, for invoking blessings upon him is a powerful means by which to attain steadfastness. But do not recite these words as a habit and custom; rather, do so keeping in mind the beauty and kindness of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and so that his rank and status may continue to be elevated, and so that he may continue to succeed. The result of this will be that the sweet and delicious fruit of the acceptance of prayer shall be granted to you”.

(Malfoozat vol.1, pp. 174-175)
