SWEET AND SINCERE
Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)
Allah has taught Mujaahideen a very high elevated supplication which removes mountains of grief, emboldens the sinking hearts, stabilizes the staggering feet, removes floods of doubts and saves faith at the time of severe satanic attacks. It is found in Surah Al-Imraan in the Holy Quran as رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِی أَمْرِنَا وََثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَی الْقَوْمِ الْکَافِرِینَ
Come Selling Your Hearts: Sell your hearts and come to Me. Only Allah's friends wage Jihaad in the way of Allah. This peak of Din is specific with Allah's dear slaves. Dear slave is the one who sacrifices his heart before his life. We place before Him our dagger, then heart and then head. Those who are proud of their sagacity do not wage Jihaad. Those who are ever worried about their own lives do not come to Jihaad. Only the courageous Holy saints tread this great and sacred path.
The Prophets waged Jihaad, got injured and were captivated. This same has been happening to Allah's friends in the world. The truthful holy saints waged Jihaad and were crippled and captivated. Everyone can lead easy, useless and aimless life. Everyone finds cheap bounties but Jihaad is the peak of Islam which defeats and devastates Infidelity. Jihaad is a very expensive bounty because it is special place of nearness with Allah. That's why; only the courageous jump into this field. Then among them, only the ambitious succeed; those who smile in every difficulty and every trouble.
The Holy Quran persuades to Jihaad. The Holy Prophetﷺ persuades Jihaad telling us that there will be effort, trouble, love and hard labour in Jihaad. Shahaadat, captivity and injuries are priceless bounties of Jihaad and hence the reward for Jihaad is very great with lovely life and great Paradise without undergoing any reckoning. So, come who wills but with bold heart selling it to Allah keeping no wish but feeling delight in what Allah wills. There is depopulation and ruination of man's personal life in Jihaad but all construction, population and success in it.
Subhaan Allah! Trillions of people have been lying in graves for thousands of years waiting for the day of Resurrection whereas Shuhada in Jihaad have been eating Allah's provisions, drinking syrups and flying very high up in the skies in the universe i.e. those who kept saving their lives, died and were wiped out but those who rushed to lay down their lives got eternal life.
Neither Did The Way of Life Nor Did the Style Change: Jihaad in the way of Allah is the name of special friendship with Allah. This intimacy of those people who indulge themselves in troubles of Jihaad is accepted. The verse رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِی أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَی الْقَوْمِ الْکَافِرِین tells us that fake devotees cannot stay in Jihaad. There is an ordinary mountain peak in Nepal named Everest. It is called ordinary because the peak of Jihaad is very high. It is so high that if all the mountains of the world are placed over one another, then the Sun the Moon, the Mars and the Mercury are placed on them, they all cummultively cannot reach the height of Jihaad. Study the lives of the Shuhada of Uhud if you don't believe how Allah talked to them, how He conveyed their message to the entire world. The mountaineers who want to conquer the ordinary peak of the Everest have to undergo so horrible troubles that a common man cannot imagine. So many mountaineers died on the way and so many were injured and crippled. Jihaad is higher than Everest. So maximum troubles befall in it again and again. There are people who change neither their life nor style in these trials, neither sword nor shield but turn to Allah and repent of their sins at once requesting Allah not to deprive them of Jihaad. In that situation, these are the people whose intimacy is acceptable to Allah and whose Jihaad is dear to Allah. Allah says وَ اللّٰہُ یُحِبُّ الصَّابِرِیْنَ .
Satanic Attacks: The Jews have devised a new method of fighting behind the walls. So many countries of the world have taken up this method now. There are tanks in front, then bullet proofs vehicles and the fighting soldiers in their shelter. The trials and troubles that befall the Mujaahideen in war are like the horrible tanks. The Satan hides himself behind those tanks. As soon as the Mujaahid faces trials like getting injured, being crippled, captivated or retreat, the Satan throws three poisonous arrows at him: 1. The Arrow of "Wahn" 2. The Arrow of Zu'af 3. The Arrow of Istikaanat. So many of you would have experienced that cowardice and disheartedness attack at the time of trial as, "Flee away. Save your life. Construct your house. Tend your children." Second attack is that of weakness, "Now we cannot fight. Now we should not fight." Third attack is that of Istikaanat, "You have undergone great trouble. Now change your ideas. Make peace with the enemies and beg peace and reconciliation of them." Whoever falls a prey to these arrows is killed, fails in love proving his friendship fake and his Jihaad false. The question is how to avoid these arrows. Allah says, "Those who concern Me avoid these arrows. They hear the news of their being Shuhada from their prophets." Alas! Which grief can be greater than this? Which thing can be more discouraging than this? But they stand firm. Why? Only because they defended against those satanic arrows at once as رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِی أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَی الْقَوْمِ الْکَافِرِینََ"
They sought forgiveness from their Lord as it is cure to "Wahn" because disheartedness occurs due to sins. When sins are wiped out, cowardice also flees away. They demanded perseverance from their Lord because it is cure to weakness. What kind of weakness when Allah makes firm our feet? They demanded help from their Lord as it is cure to Istikaanat. Who can be subdued when Allah's assistance comes? O brothers! Recite, read, understand and demand humbly beseechingly رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِی أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَی الْقَوْمِ الْکَافِرِینََ. In order to understand meanings and background of this supplication, please study Fath-ul-Jawwaad, verse 146, 167 of Surah Al-Imraan.
Difference Is Clear! You would have watched watermelon. Apparently, all the watermelons look the same but they prove red sweet and white tasteless from within. The red sweet are accepted but the white tastelss are thrown away or given to the animals as food. In the same way, all the Mujaahid look the same but their real colour shows out in the hour of trials. The sweet and sincere are accepted but the tasteless unripe are thrown away. Only those are sweet and sincere who stand firm in the hours of trials. Estimate please! How great difference? The one devises plans to flee away Jihaad giving it up when a trial befalls him. The other asks forgiveness from Allah to make firm his feet but not to deprive him of Jihaad in the hour of trials. Now, the questions is, "How to remain sweet and sincere in so intense situation because we are weak but trials are very hard?." The answer is, "Get busy with reciting رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِی أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَی الْقَوْمِ الْکَافِرِین Seek true forgiveness, perseverance and assistance from Allah, scratching out the idea of fleeing away, disheartedness and being subdued. Ask forgiveness from Allah and resolve to stand firm as all these points are encompassed in this supplication as رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِی أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَی الْقَوْمِ الْکَافِرِینَ
A Couplet of Jigar For The Rulers! The Holy Quran tells us that there have been Mujaahideen in the past Ummahs who were neither discouraged nor weakened nor subdued in the hours of trials in Jihaad rather they said رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِی أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَی الْقَوْمِ الْکَافِرِینَ . Those Mujaahdeen were blessed with high esteem in the world and high ranks in the Hereafter. One lesson in it is that the Ummah of Hazrat Muhammadﷺ is the best one. Its Mujaahideen should also take up this policy. The second lesson is, "When there were such types of Mujaahideen in the past Ummahs, this Ummah will produce better Mujaahideen than they because this is the best Ummah." So the worst news for the rulers is that all of their steps against Jihaad will fail. Both Jihaad and Mujaahideen will exist. On this occasion, there is a couplet of Jigar for the Hindu type of Pakistani rulers.
آسودہ ساحل تو ہے مگر
ساحل سے بھی موجیں اٹھتی ہیں
شاید یہ تجھے معلوم نہیں
خاموش بھی طوفاں ہوتے ہیں
Time For It: The organization is under trials in the way of Jihaad these days. There are bans, captures, raids and conspiracies. A few captures are more painful than our own capture but this is Jihaad; the obligation of the chums and the deed of mad-lovers. So, we should stand firm and recite in abundance attentively. رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِی أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَی الْقَوْمِ الْکَافِرِینَ
