Ta’leem and Tarbiyat Series #14

Ta’leem and Tarbiyat Series #14

Qur’aan and Tafseer

“(Those whose hearts are tranquil are) those who bear in mind that they will indeed meet their Rabb and that indeed to Him they will return.” (Surah Baqarah, 46)

Now understand that experience has proven that if a person wishes to empty his minds of the myriad of thoughts and host of worries in it, this is virtually impossible. There is only one solution, and that is since the mind cannot concentrate on two things at the same time, if its concentration is directed to one objective then all other thoughts and worries will automatically recede into oblivion. Therefore, after mentioning concentration, the meditation is stated by virtue of which other thoughts will be cut off and their severing will bring the heart’s/mind’s impulses to a rest; this rest will bring tranquillity to the heart/mind; this tranquillity in turn will make Salaat easy and this ease will stimulate one to perform Salaat punctually.

Thinking of “they will indeed meet their Rabb” they understand that their reward for their Salaat will be handsomely conferred then, and thinking of “to Him they will return” they understand that they have to account for their actions. The first thought produces eagerness, whilst the second produces vigilance.

Firstly, meditating any praiseworthy thought brings the mind to concentrate on a virtuous deed. Thoughts which produce eagerness and vigilance are particularly effective, however, in preparing and propelling towards virtuous deeds. (Bayaanul Qur’aan)


Hadeeth and Sunnah

The following are the hallmarks of Rasoolullah’s (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) etiquette of speech:
• He would not speak unnecessarily.
• He would maintain silence for lengthy durations.
• He would commence and end his sentences without a mumble. In other words, his speech was articulate from beginning to end. 
• He would speak in a succinct, but comprehensive manner. His words were concise, but rich in meaning.
• His speech drew the line between Haq and baatil.
• His speech was neither rambling and tautological, nor incomplete.
• (Nashrut Teeb)

Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) made Du’aa:
“O Allah! Make the sustenance of Muhammad’s family nourishing and sufficient.”
(Bukhari, Muslim – Mishkaat)

Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) supplicated to Allah Azza wa Jall that the sustenance of his nearest and dearest ones be nourishing for them to carry out Ibaadat and sufficient so that they need not stretch their hands out to others and at the same time not fall prey to the temptations abundance of wealth carries with it. (Mirqaat)


Fiqh and Masaail

• Once a kaafir resolves to become a Muslim, he or she instantaneously becomes a Muslim and the Ahkaam of Islam henceforth become binding on such a person.
• A grave mistake in certain quarters is the clamour for all those serving Deen to get into the same boat. The Fuqaha have explicitly forbidden such a Faqeeh/Mufti/Aalim from participating actively in Jihad who is required in his hometown for the Deeni requirements of his community.

Tasawwuf and Sulook

• An excellent solution to avoid domestic turmoil is for several families not to live in one home. Several women staying in the same home invariably leads to strife.
• Where something can be accomplished independently, never do it collectively. Time and again we see that the work is disrupted due to the crowd. In such cases worldly endeavours often meet with failure. Even if there is some worldly success, one’s Deen is lead to waste. 
• And that activity which cannot be carried out single-handedly, it can only be accomplished collectively, if one finds Deeni-conscious individuals then go ahead, provided that all or most are faithful to the Deen. If, however, worldly-minded people hold sway whilst those who are Deeni-conscious are dominated or idle-followers, then joining such a group is not obligatory. In such a scenario you are under no Shar’i obligation to join hands with them. [In fact, it will be obligatory to disassociate with such a group for fear of one becoming misguided through the influence of the deviates.] They may appear to be a united group, but in actual fact they are splintered. They come within the purview of the Aayat of the Qur’aan: “You think them to be united, whereas their hearts are disunited.”
(Kamaalaat-e-Ashrafiyyah)

THE SUNNAH OF LOOKING AFTER ONES HOUSEHOLD

Hakim bin Hizam Radiallahu Anhu reported Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam having said this:

The most excellent Sadaqa or the best of Sadaqa is that after giving which the (giver) remains rich and the upper hand is better than the lower hand, and begin from the members of your household.

Muslim Shareef

It has been narrated on the authority of Ibn 'Umar that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:

Beware! every one of you is a shepherd and everyone is answerable with regard to his flock. The Caliph is a shepherd over the people and shall be questioned about his. A man is a guardian over the members of his family and shall be questioned about. A woman is a guardian over the household of her husband and his children and shall be questioned about them. A slave is a guardian over the property of his master and shall be questioned about. Beware, every one of you is a guardian and every one of you shall be questioned with regard to his trust.

Muslim Shareef

Narrated Qatada Radiallahu Anhu

Anas Radiallahu Anhu  went to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam with barley bread having some dissolved fat on it. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam had mortgaged his armor to a Jew in Medina and took from him some barley for his family. Anas Radiallahu Anhu heard him saying, "The household of Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) did not possess even a single Sa (2.5kg) of wheat or food grains for the evening meal, although he has nine wives to look after."

Bukhari Shareef

Al-Aswad Radiallahu Anhu said, "I asked 'A'isha Radiallahu Anha, may Allah be pleased with her, 'What did Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam do when he was with his family?' She replied, 'He would do chores for his family, and when it was time for the prayer, he would go out.'"

Hisham Radiallahu Anhu said, "I asked 'A'isha Radiallahu Anha, 'What did Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam do in his house?' She replied, 'He did what one of you would do in his house. He mended sandals and patched garments and sewed."

'Amra Radiallahu Anhu reported that 'A'isha Radiallahu Anha was asked, "What did Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam do in his house?" She replied, "He was a man like other men. He removed the fleas from his garment and milked his sheep."
