BUGHD LILLAAH (HATRED FOR ALLAH’S SAKE)


Hazrat Musa (A.S), History & Biography / Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Once Allah Ta’ala asked Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam): “O Musaa! Did you ever do a good deed solely for My Sake?”  When Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) said: ‘Salaat.” Allah Ta’ala responded: “You perform Salaat for your own benefit.” Then Nabi Musa said: “Saum”. Allah Ta’ala said: “Saum too is for your benefit.”

Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) then mentioned Zakaat and some other deeds. For each one Allah Ta’ala replied in the same way.  Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) then professed his unawareness. Allah Ta’ala said: “Did you ever display Bughd (hatred) only for My Sake?”  Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) then realized the value of Bughd lillaah, and what a great ibaadat it is.
