THE STORY OF HOW A PERSON’S MOUTH BECAME CROOKED BY HAVING MENTIONED RASULULLAH SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM’S NAME IN JEST

A person took the name of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam mockingly. His face turned skew and remained like that. That unfortunate evil one came to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and said: “Pardon me, as you have the gift of special knowledge from Him.”

Maulana Rumi says:

“When Allah Ta’ala decides to bring disgrace upon someone, He causes him to incline towards mocking the saintly one. “

This evil inclination also is a consequence of some other sin of his that he begins to taunt the righteous ones. Allah Ta’ala then punishes him with disgrace and humiliation. On the other hand, when Allah Ta’ala desires to hide someone’s faults and sins, He helps him not to speak of the faults of faulty ones. And when He desires to favor us with good, He makes us incline towards sighing and crying in front of Him.

Blessed are those eyes which cry in front of that truly Beloved.

Blessed is that heart which is broiled in His Love.

Where there is flowing water, greenery springs and where tears flow, there Allah Ta’ala’s garden blooms.”

The Hadith teaches us that there are two drops which are very much loved by Allah Ta’ala: The drop of tear that is shed for fear of Allah Ta’ala and the drop of blood that is shed in the path of Allah Ta’ala.

“When he repented from his courage for committing sins,

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam granted him pardon.

If you desire Allah Ta’ala’s mercy, then grant pardon For him who begs pardon from you.

And if you seek the Mercy of Allah Ta’ala, Then first show mercy to the weak. “
