THE DECEPTION OF THE WORLD (Part 5)

Explaining the true reality of ownership, Hakeemul Ummah Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi Sahib رحمه الله has made us aware of the deception of our thinking; everything will become clear at the time of death. Even whilst living in the world, nothing is truly ours. If someone says that; "At least it belongs to us prior to death and will only be separated from us at the time of death." This gives testimony to one's lack of understanding.

Hazrat Thaanwi رحمه الله gives the example of a most delectable dish; if it is the decision of Allah Ta'ala جل جلاله to deprive us of it, an individual may experience severe stomach cramps and diarrhoea. In this case, one will not be able to eat even a single morsel. What then is the point of attachment of anything when we do not have control? If Allah Ta'ala جل جلاله desires, a bounty can be snatched away from us whenever He wants.

In a Hadīth narrated by Hazrat Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه, Sayyidina Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم has said; "O Allah! Grant sufficient sustenance to the progeny and followers of Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) which is enough to keep them alive."

Hazrat Moulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahib رحمه الله comments that since Sayyidina Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم was given the knowledge of the reality of this worldly life, and was well aware of the pitfalls, he did not ask for the luxuries of life for his family. He fully understood that the pleasures of this world were short-lived and they ultimately lead to the disobedience of Allah Ta'ala جل جلاله. Sayyidina Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم therefore set an example of austerity and contentment.

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ بْنُ حُمَيْدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا شَبَابَةُ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ الْعَلاَءِ، عَنِ الضَّحَّاكِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ عَرْزَمٍ الأَشْعَرِيِّ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ، يَقُولُ

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ إِنَّ أَوَّلَ مَا يُسْأَلُ عَنْهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ يَعْنِي الْعَبْدَ مِنَ النَّعِيمِ أَنْ يُقَالَ لَهُ أَلَمْ نُصِحَّ لَكَ جِسْمَكَ وَنُرْوِيكَ مِنَ الْمَاءِ الْبَارِدِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ غَرِيبٌ ‏.‏ وَالضَّحَّاكُ هُوَ ابْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ عَرْزَبٍ وَيُقَالُ ابْنُ عَرْزَمٍ وَابْنُ عَرْزَمٍ أَصَحُّ ‏.‏

Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:

“Indeed the first of what will be asked about on the Day of Judgment – meaning the slave (of Allah) being questioned about the favors – is that it will be said to him: ‘Did We not make your body, health, and give you of cool water to drink?’”
