Al-Ghazali said,

“If you see Allah, Mighty and Magnificent, holding back this world from you, frequently trying you with adversity and tribulation, know that you hold a great status with Him. Know that He is dealing with you as He does with His Awliya’ and chosen elite, and is watching over you, have you not heard His saying,

“So wait steadfastly for the judgment of your Lord – you are certainly before Our eyes.

وَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ فَإِنَّكَ بِأَعْيُنِنَا

{At-Tur 52:48}

Do you want to know what Tasawwuf and true humanity is?

Shaykh Shukri would have two cats who would visit his house regularly so you know what he would do? He would sacrifice his own portion of food and remain hungry in order to feed the cats and he’d speak to the cats and emotionally say, ‘Wallahi, this is all that I have… If I could give you more than I would.’ He would go hungry so cats could eat. One time, his kitchen had just been cleaned and just a few hours later, his student walked in and saw sugar across the kitchen so he asked him what happened and he’d tearfully reply, 'What will I tell Allāh if the ants go hungry at night? What will they eat if we don’t show kindness?’

These are the true inheritors of Rasūlullāh ﷺ and his Sahaba. If this was their mercy to animals and the environment what do you think of their mercy to humans? This is why Allah ennobled these people.

Shaykh Mohammed Aslam

You cannot give what you yourself do not possess. Without constantly building your own spiritual peace, you cannot spread it to others. You cannot call to something that you don’t have. In a world that offers too many platforms to too many people to perpetually preach, practice has become that much more difficult. Build yourself, then construct the world around you.

فاقد الشيء لا يعطيه

- Shaykh Omar Suleiman

Getting the Most out of Rajab

Advice from Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him).

“There are a number of ways to get the most out of Rajab. Some of the most important are as follows:

1. Seeking forgiveness in abundance and making sincere repentance;

2. Making a sincere resolve to seek to approach Allah through performing acts of obedience and avoiding acts of disobedience;

3. Assessing your state, rectifying it and striving to follow the Prophet ﷺin all that you do;

4. Improving your performance of the prayer by making sure that you implement the sunnahs pertaining to the prayer and pray with presence of heart. Also strive to pray in congregation in the first row without missing the opening takbir;

5. Improving your relationship with the Qur’an by increasing the amount you read and reflect upon daily and seeking to act upon it;

6. Being consistent in reading your adhkar in the morning and evening, after the prayer and in your varying states (such as eating, entering the house and preparing for sleep);

7. Improving your interaction with your family, friends, relatives, neighbours and with Allah’s slaves in general and the elect of His slaves specifically;

8. Fasting whatever days you are able to, especially Monday and Thursday and the White Days (13th, 14th and 15th days of the month);

9. Giving a portion of charity and doing what you can to help those in need and treating them kindly;

10. Worshipping Allah in these nights, especially in the last portion of the night. Improve your state at this time so as to enter into those who Allah praises in the Qur’an: Those who spend their wealth (in charity) and seek forgiveness in the last portion of the night.

We ask Allah to give us a great portion of the gifts bestowed in this month and that He makes us among those who attain acceptance and felicity in this life and the next.

O Allah, bless us in Rajab and Shaban, allow us to reach Ramadan and assist us in fasting and praying in the night.”
