In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

When things are Lost !

O Allah! Grant me Your love, and the love of a person whom my loving him will be of benefit to me near You. O Allah! Whatever You have granted me from what I love, make it a means of strength for me to use in the way You love. O Allah! Whatever love (of things) You have removed from me then grant in its place the love (of things) that You love.” (Tirmidhi)

My aunt and I were having a conversation the other day, and  this du`a’ (supplication) came up. It’s not uncommon when I speak with her that the conversation flows to an ayah (verse) from the Qur’an or a hadith (narration) of the Prophet ﷺ (peace be upon him) that she reflected on and that her heart desired to share with me. But when she recited this du`a’, she didn’t realize that my heart had a connection with this prayer too and it was with these words that I often found serenity.

While discussing the du`a’ with her, I learnt that for some reason, she had not been able to grasp and memorize this du`a’. At first she did not pay too much attention to this but it continued to tug at her consciousness until she decided to sit down once and for all and fully learn it.

It wasn’t until then, she said, that she immersed herself in its beautiful meaning and reflected on these words the Prophet ﷺ uttered, and it hit her. The depth of meaning and the sincerity of love that is present in this du`a’ was a sudden epiphany.

My aunt’s heart has experienced a lot of loss in her life. She lost her eldest son suddenly when he was only 13 years old. He was hit by a bus on his way to school and died instantly. She has always been patient masha’Allah (by the will of God) but try as they might, neither she nor her husband were ever the same after this loss.

She lost her husband about 8 years ago after he slowly became bedridden from his illness and suffered to the point that he was barely conscious. The loss of someone so dear and who was such a support truly shook her, not to mention she was left behind as a single mother in a developing country with 4 children to raise. And if that was not enough to exhaust the tears that came from her patient eyes, her 2nd eldest son who had just completed his degree and was going to begin a new job suddenly passed away only a year or so after his father. To understand how suddenly this young man was taken, picture a healthy youth of 23 years, a recent graduate from college, a whole future ahead of him, so many plans up his sleeve, and within three days his health drops and leaves him. Three days.

Subhan Allah (glory be to God), may Allah grant them all peace and His light in their graves.

After all this it was as if Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala (exalted is He) had created the prayer and sent it especially for her. Even though she had experienced so much loss in her life, after reading this du`a’ she felt as though what she used to consider suffering and hardship may actually not have been. Rather the losses she experienced gave her space and time to fill those voids with something better—Allah (swt).

If her children had not been taken from her, if her husband had not gone through what he had with her, the patience she had experienced might not be with her today. Instead of spending her time in the remembrance of Allah (swt) and studying His deen (religion) and guidance, she might never have fully turned to Him (swt) as she has. Instead she might have been encompassed by her dunya (life)—of a husband, of children and Allahu `Alim (God knows best) even of grandchildren. All this she may have had, she says, but she would not have had Allah (swt) like she does now. She would not have drawn closer to Him as she has.

And this is exactly what I only began to scratch the surface of when I recited this prayer with tears in my eyes. “O Allah! Whatever love (of things) You have removed from me, then Grant in its place the love (of things) that You love.”

Sometimes we cling to things because we think that they are the source of our happiness, they are what will make us happy and bring us closer to something blissful in this world. And when we feel like those things and those people are leaving us, we cling harder, we fight harder. But I am slowly starting to realize the blessing that comes when a void in my heart is created, when a void in space is present.

It can be filled with something more beautiful and more fulfilling than what we had before. Maybe this is the meaning of the losses we experience in this world.

Only Allah is our everything and only He (swt) can truly fulfill and complete everything we are.

Bollywood Actor Aamir Khan leaves for Hajj pilgrimage with mother

Aamir Khan left for Mecca in Saudi Arabia on Hajj pilgrimage with mother Zeenat Hussain from Mumbai on Friday evening.

Despite his busy work schedule and professional commitments, Aamir has taken out time for the fortnight-long holy trip in order to keep a promise he made to his mother.

He left for Mecca dressed as a Hajji in a direct flight that departed from Mumbai at 6.30 pm on Friday, along with his mother, eight other relatives and a Maulvi. This is Aamir’s first Hajj trip.

The superstar arrived in Mumbai on Thursday from Chicago, where he was busy wrapping up the first schedule of his forthcoming biggie, Dhoom 3, co-starring Katrina Kaif.

Aamir is scheduled to return from the pilgrimage on November 3, after which he will get busy with the pre-release promotions of his next film, Talaash. Reema Kagti’s psychological crime thriller Talaash is slated for a November 30 release, which means Aamir will straightaway get into the hectic grind of promotional activity on returning from his pilgrimage.

“Aamir has hardly had time to rest since returning from Chicago on Thursday. He launched the music of Talaash on Friday and then left for Mecca the same evening. As soon as he returns, he will get going with promoting the film along with his co-stars Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor,” a source said.

Apart from visiting Mecca, Aamir and his family members will also visit the nearby city of Medina, burial place of the Prophet Muhammad. The group will reportedly stay at the Al Massa in Mecca and at the Elaf Taiba in Medina, hotels that are within a walking distance from the holy sites.

Supplication for the blessed hajj

Supplication for the Blessed Hajj

Supplication for the Blessed Hajj

Allah has blessed us with Hajj season, and bestowed His favor upon us with the performance of different acts of worship and obedience to Him. We ask Allah to accept from those who made Hajj this year as well as from all the other Muslims who asked for His forgiveness during the foregoing blessed days.

Among the good deeds we have done during Hajj days and which we should always do is supplication. Supplication is one of the most beneficial types of healing; it is the enemy of illness and affliction — repressing them and treating them, preventing their occurrence, removing them or at least alleviating them. Supplication is the weapon of the believer, as it is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

“Supplication is the weapon of the believer, the pillar of the religion, and the light of the heaven and earth” (Al-Hakim).

Supplication is the sign of worship, and Allah loves that His slaves should supplicate to Him. He says in a hadithqudsi,

“O My slaves! You are all astray except him that I guide, so seek for My guidance, I will guide you. O My slaves! You are all hungry except him whom I feed, so seek for provision from Me, I will feed you” (Muslim).

Allah tests His slaves with trials that drive them to supplicate to Him, and this is in itself a blessing. Total reliance on Allah is the actual wealth, the essence of worship, and the utmost goal. Allah loves from His servants that they ask Him, turn towards Him, and manifest their destitution and lowliness in front of Him. Allah has made it a duty upon Himself not to send His servants back disappointed and empty-handed, as His Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) has informed us:

“There is not a Muslim upon the earth that calls to Allah with a supplication except that Allah gives it to him or He removes some evil of equal proportion from him, so long as he doesn’t supplicate for something sinful or to sever family ties.” So a man among the people said, “What if we ask numerous requests?” He (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Allah isakthar (able to respond to numerous requests).” (At-Tirmidhi)

Supplication is also a characteristic of the prophets and the chosen ones. Allah says:

{Verily, they used to hasten to do good deeds and they used to call on Us with hope and fear and used to humble themselves before Us.} (Al-Anbiya’ 21:90).

We should be patient with whatever happens to us, for there is a relief with every difficulty, and we should not stop supplicating. We should always praise our Lord and thank Him for all His mercies. Allah says:

{Invoke Me, I will respond to your invocation. Verily, those who scorn My worship, they will surely enter Hell in humiliation}(Ghafir 40:60).

Also, Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

“Whoever does not ask from Allah, He becomes angry at him” (Al-Bukhari and Ahmad).

The effects of supplication can never be over-emphasized. Prophets Nuh, Yunus, Ibrahim, Musa, Sulayman and Dawud (peace be upon them all) all invoked their Lord and He answered their invocations. He is the One Who cured Prophet Ayyub (peace and blessings be upon him) of his ailment when he supplicated to Him. Allah gave Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) victory over the disbelievers in the Battle of Badr in spite of the numerical inferiority of the Muslim army.

O you oppressed person! When all doors are closed against you, go to Allah, Whose door is never closed against the weak and the oppressed. O fathers! Supplicate for your children, for your invocations for them are accepted.

It is through supplication that one becomes high-minded, contented, and respected. The more one increases in sincerity, the more one’s prayers are answered. One should not be hasty and impatient. If the answer is delayed or slow in coming, one should not become frustrated and give up supplicating. This person is like the one who sows a seed or plants a flower, watering it and tending to it, then when it is delayed in appearing or flowering he leaves it and neglects it. Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessigns be upon him) said:

“The supplication of the servant will always be answered provided that he does not supplicate for something sinful or supplicate to sever the ties of kinship and provided that he is not impatient.” It was asked, “O Messenger of Allah, what is impatience?” He (peace and blessigns be upon him) replied, “He says: ‘I have supplicated and supplicated but I have not received an answer’ then he becomes frustrated and leaves off supplicating” (Muslim).

Ibn Hajar said, “Every supplicant will have his prayer accepted and it is only the forms of acceptance that will vary; sometimes it is accepted in the form of what one really wants or it is accepted in the form of a substitute to it.”

The servants should combine in their supplication the presence of the heart and its being attentive and devoting solely to Allah. They should have fear and reverence in their heart, beseeching their Lord in a state of humility and submissiveness. They face the qiblah and in a state of purity, they raise their hands to Allah and begin by praising and extolling Him. Then they invoke peace and blessings upon Muhammad, His servant and Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him). They precede mentioning their need by seeking forgiveness from Allah, and then they earnestly and sincerely make their request like one who is needy and impoverished, supplicating to Him out of hope and fear. They seek the means of getting close to Him by mentioning His names and attributes and making the religion sincerely for Him alone.

I would like to end my khutbah by supplicating to Allah to save the Muslims from their enemies and the danger around them. We ask Allah to remove the hardships, difficulties, and dangers from every Muslim. We ask Allah to spread peace and security in the whole world. May Allah accept our good deeds, forgive our faults and mistakes, and keep us on the straight path.
