662-USEFUL AND PRICELESS GIFTS

USEFUL AND PRICELESS GIFTS

Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 662)

Allah be thanked many times that He showered the bounty of Islam on us which is the biggest, precious and essential bounty. Let us revive our faith لا الہ الا اللّٰہ،لا الہ الا اللّٰہ،لا الہ الا اللّٰہ محمد رسول اللّٰہ. The poor Trump, Modi, Bill Gates and Zikrberg are deprived of this bounty.
Today's Gift: Today, we shall talk a bit about the world situation if Allah wills. For example: a heinous conspiracy against Ulama, Echo of Kashmir issue in the UNO, Perturbation of Iran and Five practices. Four of them belong to Hazrat Usmaan Harooni and one to Hazrat Baba Farid-ud-Din Masood Ganj Shakr. It means that colour and light will go hand in hand. May Allah make it useful for us!
A Precious Gift: The devotion dearest to Allah is gratitude. Alas! There are very few grateful slaves. May Allah make us grateful slaves! Bounty is multiplied due to gratitude which is Allah's true promise. Hazrat Usmaan Harooni writes: "Offering gratitude of wealth is giving Sadaqah and that of Islam is to proclaim الحمد للہ رب العالمین. Whoever proclaims الحمد للہ رب العالمین, offers thanks at Islam. Whoever pays Zakat and Sadaqah, gives due of the wealth." (Anis-ul-Arwah P:33)
We have acquired a grand bounty الحمد للہ رب العالمین. We have learnt the method of offering thanks for the bounty. Nearly 800 years have passed since the demise of Hazrat Usmaan Harooni but his beneficence is still going on. Since when I studied his words, I have been finding a special delight in proclaiming الحمد للہ رب العالمین. When الحمد للہ رب العالمین runs on the tongue and lips, it cannot be stopped before completing the number one hundred. According to a tradition, thirty thousand virtues are recorded in the Recording Book after proclaiming الحمد للہ رب العالمین for 100 times. The mind flies to the point also that Allah has taught us the method of offering thanks for Islam in the very first verse of the Holy Quran. As it is a verse of the Holy Quran, there will be ten virtues in lieu of every letter. Gratitude for wealth is a Sadaqah. It becomes known that when we acquire wealth, though very little, we should give Sadaqah to offer gratitude for it. The good will be that there will be no reckoning for the bounty for which we offer gratitude. Secondly, wealth will be multiplied besides numerous benefits of Sadaqh.
A Conspiracy Against Ulama: The Afghan government has framed a commission including a few so-called Maulvis. Those pro-Americans have issued a decree that Afghan war is not a legal Jihaad and Fedai attacks are unlawful in Islam. As these pro-American intelligentsia are supported by America, they can fly to every country they like. They go sometimes to Jakartah, to Jeddah and sometimes to Islamabad. They are contacting with Pakistani Ulama also to get their illiterate decree verified. More than two million Muslims have got killed in Afghan Jihaad. Now, the Ulama lead that Jihaad. If there had been no Jihaad of Afghanistan, Pakistan would also have become a part of history and the world map would have changed. Afghan Jihaad is Allah's great bounty on the earth' Alas! The Pagan world is now using Ulama to wipe it out now. The Pakistani Ulama should not become a part of this conspiracy but support Afghan, Kashmir and Palestine Jihaad even more. Jihaad in the way of Allah is an authentic Islamic obligation. Hazrat Usmaan Harooni has talked of Jihaad in the way of Allah as fighting after Kalimah Tayyibah explaining fully that denier of an obligation is an Infidel and it becomes his lot. Glamour of Five Star Hotels, first class air tickets and visits of country are so trifle that faith cannot be endangered in lieu of them. The man who commands Afghan Jihaad today is an authentic scholar of tradition. This Jihaad is a Jihaad of miracles. Its opposition is no more than loss and harm. If someone cannot join it, he should, at least, support it verbally and avoid opposing it.
An Effective and Powerful Deed for Success in the World and the Hereafter: Hazrat Usmaan Harooni has been a very great saint and scholar of Din. He is teacher of Hazrat Khawajah Mueen-ud-Din Chishti Ajmeri. He is buried in Makkah. Khawajah Usmaan of Sehwan Sharif Sindh is another saint. His name is Khawajah Usmaan Marwandi and is known as Shahbaz Qalandar. Both belong to near past. Khawajah Usmaan Harooni is greater than Khawajah Usmaan Marwandi. His disciple Hazrat Mueen-ud-Din Chisti Ajmeri has collected his sayings in a book named "Anis-ul-Arwah." It is written in those sayings:
"Allah places amplitude in the life and wealth of the person who recites Surah Yaaseen and Aayat-ul-Kursiy once each and Surah Akhlas thrice after every Salaat and feels easy on in reckoning and Siraat Bridge on the Day of Judgement." (Anis-ul-Arwah.) Wonderful benefits of reciting Surah Yaaseen and Surah Akhlas five times a day are not hidden from holy people.
In the UN: Speech of Pakistani foreign minister in the annual session of the UN this year was appreciable. As we censure wrong steps of the government, we should appreciate her good steps also. Full support to sanctity of Prophethood, Kashmir issue and Palestine issue deserve appreciation. Although the UN gives no importance to the issues of the Muslims nor can make justice in its decisions yet mention of good points there is a bounty. So may resolutions and reports on Kashmir exist in the UN but none has yet been followed nor has the UN imposed any restriction on India as a punishment for not following the resolutions of the UN. However, if this UN brands an Islamic organization or personality a terrorist, it mounts its full pressure to get that decision followed. It becomes known that it is blind, deaf and unjust.
A Blessed Deed: Hazrat Usmaan Harooni talks of grand and immortal bounties of the Paradise saying, "The man who wants to acquire these bounties, should always recite Surah Akhlas after Friday Salaat; bounties are multiplied for him." (Anis-ul-Arwah)
Actual bounties are that of the world besides Hereafter bounties in abundance. In the beginning of the book, he says that every practice benefits man only when he is binding on Salaat five times a day.
Iran's Perturbation: Iran is the only country in the world who sends her soldiers and volunteers openly to other countries under the supervision of the government. If some other country had done so, all the Pagan forces together would have attacked it. As Iran is dear to the Pagan world, it is allowed to fight in Shaam or Iraq, send terrorists in Yamen or Lebanaan. As a reaction to these Iranian oppressions, a military was attacked a few day ago in Iran. Now, she is utterly perturbed. She has been throwing missiles on Syrian Muslims. Can anyone hinder Iran from this oppression under so-called international laws?
Weeping of Kids: Hazrat Usmaan Harooni says that kids weep when Satan disturbs them. So recite لاحول ولاقوۃ الا باللّٰہ العلی العظیم when the baby weeps so that you may get glad-tidings and the baby stop weeping. Now, note a practice of Hazrat Baba Fareed:
Cure of Poverty and Indigence: Whenever a person contacted Hazrat Baba Farid-ud-Din Masood Ganj Shakr for religious or worldly concerns, he persuaded him to resort to the Holy Quran and Sunnah. Generally, he would stress on him to observe patience and establish Salaat. One day, a man said, "I am very poor. There is often starvation at home." He supplicated for him directing, "Recite Surah Jumuah every night before going to bed daily."
