AL-WAKEEL (THE REPRESENTATIVE)
Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)
Allah is sufficient for us and He is the best Reprentative and Doer. حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ
Hazrat Khawajah's Incident: Hazrat Khawajah Nizam-ud-Din used to shun the kings. That's why; the kings often remained offended with them. Once the king forbade his courtiers and soldiers who would offer gifts to him to visit him and to give him presents. The king was of the view that when gifts and offerings would be stopped, his victuals would also be stopped and he would be constrained to resort to him. When Hazrat Khawajah came to know of it, he ordered the supervisor to multiply the quantity of flour i.e. to bake loaves of bread double in number so that the king might come to know that the Sustainer of victuals is someone else i.e. Allah. حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ، حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ،حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ
Presents of the Syed: When the previous Friday was going to end, presents began to reach. An intimate friend from Karachi sent the message that arrangements to construct a Masjid had been made. He requested to select the site and start its construction. Subhaan Allah! Only one Muslim took up the responsibility for a complete Masjid. This was the first glad tidings amid the sad news as Masjid is Allah's House. The administrator of Masaajid was assigned the task then and there so he got busy with construction and population of Allah's House. A lot of contribution is to be collected for a Masjid but when subscriptions are banned, there comes only one individual to do this. It becomes clear حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ، حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ
Then there was a long line of glad tidings. So many companions were released. Allah fulfilled so many collective as well as individuals needs. Hajj delegation was also appointed. The rulers who pestered Mujaahideen were caught in troubles and their offensive style suddenly became defensive. India met a humiliating defeat in the UNO. Now the Indian media telecasts the pictures, speeches and glimpses of the Mujaahideen for hours. Besides this, China is also given words of abuse. We love Friday as it is chief of the days. This Friday, the companions prayed for release of the captives. May Allah accept it making it easy as He is Sufficient and Representative. حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ، حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ،حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ
Another Glad Tidings: The Afghan Mujaahideen have been trusting in the leadership of Mulla Akhtar Mansur which is a great glad tidings. Islamic Emirates was under threats and conspiracies after Shahaadat of Amir-ul-Mu'mineen but Allah showered His grace and all the internal and external conspiracies were foiled and hence wise and sagacious Mulla Akhtar Mansur became unanimous leader of the Islamic Emirates. Allah be thanked that we have been supporting him from the very first day remaining away his opponents and praying for unity in the Islamic Emirates. Glad tidings about it came on Friday. Surely, Allah suffices us and He is the best representative.
Allah Is The Representative: The Quranic verseحَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُُ is occurring again and again in the column so I want to talk a little about Allah's good name "Al-Wakeel" Representative. Wakeel is the person whom man assigns his tasks and feels satisfied. Why are one's tasks assigned to someone? It has two causes. First, those tasks are so hard that man cannot perform them. So he turns to the person skilled in those tasks and assigns them to him. Secondly we assign our tasks to a friend when we find him very authoritative, powerful and faithful thinking that he will get our tasks done in minutes. Estimate a little please, which is the task of the world that cannot be done and which is the problem of the world that cannot be solved when man makes Allah his Representative with regard to these two meanings? That's why; the Recognizers of Allah find efficacy of "Grand Name" in the word "Al-Wakeel" also particularly in the face of enemies, natural disasters, sins, oppressors and all the needs. حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ، حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ،حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ
I Recall Hazrat Mufti Wali Hasan: The topic of today's is column was another one. When I recalled حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیل in the beginning and intended to write more on "Al-Wakeel", I recalled the late Hazrat Mufti Wali Hasan. Registering a strong case against him, the government summoned him. There was all provisions of awe and terror in the court but when he stood up to get his statement recorded, he said in the beginning الدین النصیحۃ and then explained this tradition feeling no awe. He explained the authenticity and details of the tradition in a way as if he were sitting before his students which was his special peculiarity. Deviating the actual topic, when I was advancing with the topic of Al-Wakeel, his thought struck my mind that today I am tinged in his colouring. May Allah raise him in his stages and forgive us with regard to his rights and appreciation! He was the man who really placed his trust in Allah. Once, the Jaamia faced deficit in budget and salary could not be disbursed among the teachers. Hazrat Binnori called in the teachers and explained the situation telling them that he hoped nothing in future giving them the choice to stay there or go somewhere else. Hazrat Mufti Wali Hasan said to him, "I have not come here to receive payment. I shall live on parched grams but will go nowhere else." It was when he was facing fiscal problems but he always believed in Allah to suffice for him. There was amplitude in wealth after a few months. Hazrat Binnori sent him for and tried to pay him, but he refused to accept it saying, "Time has passed. What shall I do with the extra amount?" He did not accept the payment despite insistence but accepted the allowance of the current month only. Actually four things are covered in the word Al-Wakeel: (1) Al-Hafeez (2) Al-Kafeel (3) Al-Muqsit (4) Al-Kaafi i.e. Protection, Rearing, Livelihood and Sufficiency. حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ، حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ،حَسْبُنَا اللّٰہُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَکِیلُ
Correction of the Supplication: I was to discourse on a very important topic of blame on the religious institutions; the blame of which I feel ashamed of writing. So many good people are affected by this blame now. I was to write on it in detail so that none should nourish misgiving about it and none should feel perturbed of sending their children to those institutions. The topic is lengthy so it will be discussed next. I wrote an article in the last edition of Al-Maraabitoon. Study it now if you can. The personnel of the Al-Qalam published supplication from Hazrat Ali in wrong words. Although it was corrected at the website yet it was published wrong in the paper. It is reprinted now. Correct it in your paper thus: لا اِلٰہَ اِلّا اللّٰہُ الْحَلِیمُ الْکَرِیْمُ،لَا اِلٰہَ اِلّا اللّٰہُ الْعَلِیُّ الْعَظِیْمُ،اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِیْنَ I stop writing at this sacred supplication.
لا الہ الا اﷲ، لا الہ الا اﷲ، لا الہ الا اﷲ محمد رسول اﷲ…
اللّٰھم صل علیٰ سیدنا محمد والہ وصحبہ وبارک وسلم تسلیما کثیرا کثیرا…
لا الہ الا اﷲ محمد رسول اﷲ
