Gems - Hazrat Maulana Abdul Hamid Is`haq Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhum)

Recommended Posts

The Shaykh is the doctor who removes the cataract from the eyes of the spiritual heart, after which the Saalik is blessed with baseerat (spiritual sight) and Ma`rifat of Allah Ta’ala. And naturally, having recognized the Beloved, the goal is achieved.

The Kalima ‘La ilaaha Ilallah’ has an alchemy effect : It changes a Jahannami  into a Jannati;

it changes one who was hated into one who is now loved;

it changes the lowest into the highest. SubhanAllah.

Anyone who wants to learn Good Character will have to go to the threshold of Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam). Good character is his Sunnah and it is from him and those who follow him that we too will learn good character.

A mureed should not ride on the crest of his Shaykh’s name and honour – that is, he should not take advantage of others or have expectations of others, by virtue of his connection with his Shaykh.

 ‘Today, people want to give Islam a facelift; to make Islam fit into modern society.


Islam does not need a facelift – Islam is ever-beautiful, ever-youthful. It is not a way of life that becomes old or out-dated.


Rather, it is modern society that needs to change and conform.’

All achievements are favours of Allah Ta’ala."

"We are passing through the passage of life and not recognizing Allah Ta’ala; whereas everything around are signs of His Greatness, Perfection and Beauty."

"Allah Allah! What a sweet name,

It is sweeter than honey and sugar cane.

 

Allah Allah! What a great name,

It removes the desire for name and fame.

 

Allah Allah! What a comforting name,

It removes all my sorrow and pain.

 

Allah Allah! What a beautiful name,

Our Hadhrat’s pain is for us to obtain the love of

Your name.

 

Allah Allah! What a gentle name,

My tongue repeats it again and again.

 

Allah Allah! What a perfect name,

That no one else can claim.

 

Allah Allah! What a unique name,

That babies easily make it their first saying.

 

Allah Allah! What a pure name,

It makes my heart cry in shame.

 

Allah Allah! Your name brings so much of bliss,

We all seek your love and forgiveness."

"In the Majaalis of the Sheikh, general prescriptions are given.

 

However, if a Mureed maintains his Ta-alluq, informing the Sheikh of his spiritual weaknesses, whether when meeting with him or via correspondence, that Mureed is privileged with a Tailor-made prescription. 

 

There is great progress in informing the Sheikh, but how many do so?"

Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu)’s Help is not on the label, but it is on the reality"

Don’t feel offended. Glad tidings to the Ghurabah (strangers).

“Islam began as something strange and it will return strange as it began,

so glad tidings for the strangers.”

 


[sahih Muslim]

"Write your life for Allah Ta’ala – like how the Sahaba-e-Kiraam (RA) wrote their lives.

 
...They wrote their lives with their blood, with love, obedience, sacrifice, sincere commitment to Islam and adherence to the Sunnah.

 
Their life story was a love story which ascended the confines of this temporary world – because their love relationship had its connection in the heavens, with the Creator of the Universe.

 
They wrote their lives for Allah Ta'ala and Allah Ta'ala  'wrote' their honour in  His Kalaam, the Qur`aan Shareef, for all times;
 and presented their lives for all of mankind to take lesson from and draw inspiration from, until Qiyaamah."

"To the extent that our Salaah will be correct, our Dien will be correct.

To the extent that our Dien will be correct, our Dunya and Aakhirat will also be correct."

 

 

"Fortunate is the one who appreciates the bounties of Allah Ta'ala and expresses his appreciation

– both verbally and in deed, i.e. he uses Allah Ta'ala's bounties in His obedience.

 

Whoever is sincerely grateful, Allah Ta'ala promises an increase of His bounties."

 

 

"Choosing the temporary enjoyments of sins, can result in losing the eternal enjoyments of Jannah!

 

Whilst there is life and opportunity, we should give up sins and secure the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala

and the everlasting pleasures of Jannah"

 

 

"The lovers of Allah Ta’ala have love for each other irrespective of where they reside in the world. 

 

Our Sheikh, Hadhrat Moulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh)

would say that the Lovers of Allah Ta’ala are one family."

Tashakkur (gratitude) and Takabbur (pride) cannot be in the heart at one and the same time.

When the person switches the light of Tashakkur on, the darkness of Takabbur will disappear.

"Every righteous effort of Dien is a tower on its own – be it the Darul Ulooms, Makaatib, Khanqahs, Tabligh, etc.

 

No effort of Dien  should be criticized or lowered to prove the greatness of another.

All efforts are important and beneficial, and each effort complements the other."

 

 

"When a person spends his money in the path of Allah Ta’ala,

he transfers his money from the account of Dunya to the account of Aakhirah."

We cannot carve and chisel Islam to suit our nafs ;


rather it is for us to cut our nafs down to size.
