Maximising On Our Deeds

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem


THE MASHAA`IKH AND AULIYA ALLAH have the same number of hours in a day as we have; they have the same kind of physical bodies as we do; yet their capacity of earning the pleasure of Allah Jalla Jalaaluhu and maximising on their actions surpasses us.

How do they surpass us?
What is the secret behind their success?

When a person becomes a success story; when he climbs the ladder of material and worldly success, then people are ever eager to know how he got to the top. …If, in a short period of time, a person ‘upgrades’ in life –  ‘from rags to riches’ – people want to know the secret behind his fortune. They want the guidelines and the tips that will open the doors of material riches for themselves.

On the other hand, the Muslim, who has his sight on the Aakhirah (Hereafter) and has enthusiasm for the Aakhirah, has ‘greed’ for doing good deeds and ‘greed’ for Thawaab (rewards). He is not content and not happy to remain spiritually poor. He wants to climb the ladder of spiritual success. He is constantly working to upgrade his Aakhirah, upgrade his Jannah and more importantly, upgrade his relationship with his Beloved Allah Ta’ala.

So we should be more interested and eager to know how the Auliya Allah build their spiritual fortunes. What is their secret?

The Spiritual Anti-Virus

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

by Hadhrat Moulana Abdul Hamid Is`haq Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhum)

LIKE A COMPUTER VIRUS can be the cause of corruption of files and deletion and loss of all work, the viruses of Riyaa (show / ostentation), Ujub (vanity / conceit), Kibr (pride) and other sins have similar consequences. They destroy and delete good works. ...May Allah Ta’ala purify and protect us.

In the field of technology, man has formulated and designed Antivirus software which is used to protect, scan, identify, prevent, remove and destroy viruses from a computer. Allah Ta’ala, the Creator of man, has given man a special Anti-Virus programme for man’s own self. This unique Anti-Virus is instituted for the protection of the spiritual heart from the viruses of sins – viruses which sometimes go undetected and which cause great harm and destruction to the individual, as well as to others. This Spiritual Anti-Virus comes in the form of the Suhbat (company) of the Ahlullah (The special friends of Allah).

It is in their noble company that we are able to identify the viruses of sins and it is through their guidance and direction, that we can easily eliminate these spiritual viruses. …We should thus sincerely seek out the company of the Ahlullah for the protection and purification of our hearts and souls. This is in keeping with Allah Ta’ala’s Command:

يٰٓأَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللهَ وَكُوْنُوْا مَعَ الصّٰدِقِيْنَ
