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


Allamah Sayyid Sulaimân Nadwi said,

“When I obtain the wealth of Your grief, then I become free of the grief of both the worlds.”

The grief expressed for Allâh's sake is extremely delicious. This is the portion of the messengers and saints. Allâh Ta'âla takes half a life in His path but He grants thousands in replacement. Therefore, those whom Allâh has granted His love and recognition, they discard all sins.

There was a drunkard who left drinking wine and sported a beard. Yet he used to drink so much that people had to carry him away after his rendition of poetry. He himself says,

“Now is the fear of the day of Reckoning, I have had an unlimited amount to drink.”

But when the fear of Allâh came, he repented. He met a pious person and asked him to make Dua so that he could quit drinking, perform Hajj and sport a beard. The result was that he sported a fist-length beard and quit drinking. The doctors advised him that if he did not drink, he would die. He replied that he would die but if he kept on drinking, for how long would he live? The doctors said he may manage another two to four years. He said that it is better for me to die now by quitting than to live with the wrath of Allâh because now my death will be in the shadow of Allâh's mercy. And if I died while drinking, I would die with the anger of Allâh.

Thus it is better that I die now. Consequently, with the mercy of Allâh, he remained alive for a long time and his health improved tremendously.

If a woman wishes to travel 77 kilometres or more, then as long as she does not have a Mahram from among the males or her husband, it will not be permissible for her to travel. It is a major sin to travel without a Mahram. It is not good to even travel less than 77 kilometres without a Mahram. Prohibition in regard to this has also been mentioned in the Hadith.

Sayyiduna Ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “'A woman must not travel except with a Mahram and a man must not enter upon her except if she has a Mahram”. (Sahih al-Bukhari, no. 1763).

I came in to work early the other day and began hanging upside down from the ceiling. Just then one of my co-workers came in and asked me what I'm doing.

"Shh," I said, " I'm a light bulb -- I'm acting crazy to get a few days off, as there is an out of town wedding I need to go to until Tuesday."

A minute later the boss walked by and asked me what I was doing.

"I'm a light bulb!" I exclaimed.

"You're going crazy," he said. "Take a few days off, and come back when you are less stressed."

With that, I jumped down and started walking out. My co-worker started following me and the boss asked where she was going.

"I can't work in the dark," she said.
