Meditation before Action to act on the Sunnah

Dr Abdul Hayy ‘Aarifi (Raheemahullah) said he made a concerted effort for years to develop correct intention of obedience to the Sunnah. Before any action he spent a few moments to ponder on the gift and bounty from Allah ta’ala and then he would say to himself that it was the practice of Allah’s beloved Messenger sallallaahu ‘aayhi wasallam to express gratitude on the bounties of Allah ta’ala. Only then would he proceed with the action in keeping with the Sunnah.

 

He followed this method of meditation before proceeding to eat when delicious food was placed in front of him, even if he was extremely hungry, or drinking a glass of cold water in intense thirst. When his gaze fell on his beloved child he would meditate before taking the child lovingly on his lap in keeping with the sunnah of Allah’s beloved Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam.

 

After a lengthy period of time this form of meditation to make an intention to act upon every Sunnah from morning till night, resulted in reaching a stage where an intention automatically came to mind. He used to say,

 

Deen is in reality the changing of one’s point of view. Acts which we consider worldly remain the same but they are converted to acts of worship and essential parts of Deen.
