Being concerned of one's own reformation

Recommended Posts

Being More Concerned of One’s Reformation than the Reformation of Others

 

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

There is a great need for each person to be concerned about his own reformation and to correct his actions. Nowadays, we find that people have fallen into the sickness of worrying about other people’s weaknesses while they are unconcerned about their own reformation. This can be compared to a person who is more concerned about looking after the shoes of others while his own shoes and luggage get stolen due to him being unconcerned about them. How foolish is the action of such a person! (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/56)

      Ramadan; a divine opportunity for our reformation
      'Allamah Muhammad Yusuf Al Binnory (rahimahullah) writes:

      'From the beginning of time, Allah Ta’ala selected the month of Ramadan as the season for abundant blessings and divine light (tajalliyat). Whenever Allah Ta’ala sent any gift from the sky for the reformation of humanity, Allah selected the month of Ramadan. The famous books and scriptures of the previous Ambiya were also revealed in this month culminating with the revelation of the Quran.

      Ramadan is near. During this month divine light (Nur and Tajalli) of Allah will cover everyone, provisions for forgiveness of man will be made. Allah Ta’ala, the most Generous, will increase His generosity. The doors of Jannah will be opened, the gates of Jahannam will be locked.

      O one who seeks good, go ahead! O one who intends evil, stop!

      Every night countless sinful people are saved from the blaze of Jahannam. For the reformation and cleansing of the evil soul (nafs), Allah Ta’ala has ordained fasting during the day, so that a believer can acquire the highest stages of taqwa and become close to Allah Ta’ala.

      During the nights we are encouraged to listen and recite the Quran. By means of the fast, the inner self (nafs) is cleansed and for the enhancement of the soul (ruh), Allah Ta'ala has arranged the recital of the Quran.

      It is as though in this blessed month, the [inhabitants of] earth are given a chance to link up with the higher ranked Angels in the skies [Al-Malaul A'la].'
