WHEN AND UPON WHOM SHOULD WE SACRIFICE OUR LIVES?

We do not know when Allah Ta’ala will call. No one has the guarantee of how long we are going to live, therefore how can one have this thought that when we will become old, we will perform Hajj and engage in excessive Ibaadat. My respected mothers, sisters and daughters! When you place an order for meat, then do you order the meat of an old goat or of a young goat? Listen carefully to what I am saying! Tell me! Which part of life is better? Is it youth or old age? Which is the best part of life? Youth! So what gift do you want to present to Allah Ta’ala and the Rasul ( )? Youth or old age? We should feel ashamed of ourselves, and we should repent to Allah Ta’ala.
What do you think of Allah Ta’ala and one Rasulullah ( ), that when we have become old, and are now wearing thick spectacles, our backs have become bent, someone has become a grandmother and someone has become a grandfather, then at this age we want to start thinking of Allah Ta’ala. This is an act of ingratitude! The youth that Allah Ta’ala has bestowed us with, should be sacrificed for Him alone. Do not run after outward appearances. Repent from this form of idol-worship! These are all temporary things which will come to an end. Do you not realise that a girl who is sixteen years old today, will one day become a grandmother. She will have to wear thick spectacles, she will not have any teeth left in her mouth and she will walk with her back bent. This is the case with the boys also. Today that sixteen or eighteen year old boy, who looks so handsome, after a few days, his rosy cheeks will become pressed together, his teeth will fall out, his hair will become white, he will be wearing thick magnifying-glass like spectacles, and he will become an old man. A couplet of mine is based on this:

THE CURE FOR HARD-HEARTEDNESS AND NEGLIGENCE

Hakeemul Ummat Mujaddidul-Millat Moulana Ashraf Ali Saheb Thanwi ( ) the author of Bahishti Zewar and a very great Aalim (scholar of Deen) has mentioned, that whoever’s heart has become hard, and instead of engaging in the remembrance of Allah Ta’ala, he is troubled by the desire to sin i.e. hardness has settled into his heart, which is termed as Qasa’wat in Arabic, then for the reformation of such a heart, a prescription has been mentioned in the Hadith Shareef.

WHO POSSESSES THE RIGHT TO TELL US HOW WE SHOULD LEAD OUR LIVES?

In this world, there is no one who possesses the right to tell us how we should lead our lives. Not America, not Africa, not Russia not Japan! There is absolutely no one who has the right to tell us in which manner we should live our lives. The only one who possesses this right is Allah Ta’ala, Who bestowed His Beloved Rasul ( ), the Final Nabi, with this right also, because it is only by treading the path which leads to the pleasure and happiness of Allah Ta’ala, that a person can acquire peace and comfort in this world and the hearafter. If a person displeases Allah Ta’ala, his True Master, then there is no one in the entire world that can bring him peace and comfort. There is no power and might greater than Allah Ta’ala, Our True Master.

Introduction

Dear respected elders, brothers, sisters and daughters! Allah has revealed the Qur’aan Majeed for our guidance, so that each and every person can live his life in accordance to the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. In the 29th juz (para) of the Qur’aan Majeed, in Surah Mulk, Allah Ta’ala has mentioned that this world is a place of examination, and that He has sent us in this world to test us. He has not sent us into this world to enjoy a life of luxuary and pleasure. Therefore, to follow the path of Nafs (evil soul) and Shaytaan, to displease one’s Master, and to suffer the consequences of the punishment of the grave thereafter, is utter foolishness and contrary to the dictates of intelligence.
