May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



By Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi RA

Allah Ta’ala states in the Noble Qur’an: “That which is with you will perish but that which is with Allah Ta’ala will remain.”

These two sentences are concise but comprehensive in their message. Every Aayat of the Quran is comprehensive in its meaning. The gist of life is contained in these sentences.

The world is a place of use and needs. Every action has its usage and purpose, for e.g. we go to the shops to purchase our requirements. If someone frequents the shops for recreation and amusement, this will not be permissible as the shopping centers are Shaitaan’s dens of vice. The market places are filled with enjoyments and pleasures, enticing us towards worldly enjoyment. Sprawling shops and buildings attract the eye creating a greater desire to obtain worldly pleasures. Thus we enter the shopping centers, buy our requirements and return home quickly.

This is the similitude of this world to the hereafter. The world is like a shopping centre and the hereafter is our eternal home. In the hereafter, we will be blessed with eternal happiness, eternal youth, eternal strength and eternal enjoyments. We will not be afflicted with sadness, death, hunger or even sorrow and Allah Ta’ala will be pleased with us for ever and ever.

But, the hereafter has certain requirements. Just as food, clothing, shelter etc, are the requirements of this world, purchased form the bazaars, the requirements of the hereafter will be acquired from the ‘worldly’ bazaar. Allah Ta'ala has sent man, to earth, to obtain the necessities for the hereafter and not to amass the things of the world. The possessions of this world will be left behind.

If a small child who has been fed with milk vomits it out, then if it is not a mouthful, it will not be impure, and if it is a mouthful, it will be impure. Hence, if the mother performs her Salaah without washing out that vomit from her clothing, her Salaah will not be in order.

A young man hired by a supermarket reported for his first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom and said, "Your first job will be to sweep out the store."

"But I'm a college graduate," the young man replied indignantly.

"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know that," said the manager.
"Here, give me the broom -- I'll show you how."
