REKINDLE YOUR LOVE FOR RASULULLAH (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM) With the onset of Rabiul Awwal the hearts of the Believers are truly revitalised. Brimming with love and appreciation for our Beloved Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasalam) - connections are rekindled and deep reflections begin to take place. Our honourable Mufti Ebrahim Desai (Rahimahullah) would express great zeal and eagerness in propagating the beautiful message of our Beloved Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasalam) and was always so passionate about instilling the true love of Rasulullah( salallahu alaihi wasalam) in the hearts of the Believers. We will be sharing the recordings of the summarized discourses on the Qaseedah Burdah conducted by Mufti Sahib (Rahimahullah) throughout the month of Rabiul Awwal. We hope that these reminders will ignite within our hearts the true love of Rasulullah (Salallahu alaihi wasalam). We ask Allah to strengthen our Imaan through the barakah of these discourses and we make Dua it will be a means of Sadaqah Jariyah for our honourable Mufti Ebrahim Desai (Rahimahullah). DISCOURSE #1 | A SUMMARIZED VERSION OF THE QASEEDAH BURDAH BY MUFTI EBRAHIM DESAI (RAHIMAHULLAH) The discourse began with a beautiful recitation of some couplets from the Qaseedah Burdah by the Mu'adhin of Musjid Us Saliheen, Sheikh Yahya. The people really enjoy Sheikh Yahya’s rendition of the Qaseedah Burdah. Mufti Saheb began his discourse by mentioning the background of the composer of the Qaseedah Burdah, Allamah Busairi Rahmatullah Alayh. Allamah Busairi Rahmatullah Alayh hailed from Egypt. He was employed by the government. He associated with high profile people and had all the comforts and luxuries of Life. However, he did not have peace (Sukoon). On this, Mufti Saheb explained the difference between the means of peace and peace itself. He stated when one turns to Allalh, Allah will grant one peace. The various means of peace may not necessarily give one peace. Imam Busayri Rahmatullah Alayh identified a spiritual guide. This was a turning point. He then treaded the path of Tazkiyah. Allamah Busairi always wished to have the Ziyaarat of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in his dream and wrote numerous poems in praises of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. When he was old and afflicted with a stroke, Allamah Busairi Rahmatullah Alayh was blessed with the Ziyarah of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in which he presented some couplets in the praises of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam was extremely pleased with this poetry and presented Allamah Busairi with a shawl. Hence, the name of the poem, poems of the Shawl. The love of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is integral in the life of a believer. A person’s Imaan is not complete until the love of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is more than the love of anyone else in your life. Mufti Saheb mentioned some incidents showing the love the Sahabah had for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and their acts of love which demonstrated their extreme love for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Love has the potential to create a revolution in the life of a person. A person observes the beloved and wishes to emulate every action of the beloved. Mufti Saheb mentioned the story of Majnoon and Layla and the impact love can have in one's life. Mufti Saheb explained the introduction of the poems. There are two role players. One is an Ashiq (Lover) of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and the other is an observer of the Ashiq. The observer observes the reaction of the Ashiq-e-Rasool. Whenever there is a slight reference to Madinah Shareef, or the neighbourhood of Madinah Shareef, or even the mountains of Madinah Shareef, the Ashiq-e-Rasool gets emotional and his ‘eyes bleed tears’. That is an expression of a heart bleeding with love. Mufti Saheb then presented amazing incidents of the Sahabah’s love for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
