PRICELESS GIFTS

Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 607)

Only Allah knows His Power and Might. He is, no doubt, All-Powerful over everything. اِنَّ اللّٰہَ عَلیٰ کُلِّ شَیْئٍ قَدِیْرٌ When this column reaches you, you will be spending the best days of your life. The believers are blessed with these sacred days and nights every year i.e. first ten days and nights of Zul-Hajah. The lucky earn a lot and gather assets for their lives in these days and nights. These are blessed days so I offer you a few priceless gifts. May we get benefit from them!
The Best Method to Seek Absolution: Hazrat Abuzar Ghaffaari reports that the Holy Prophetﷺ says from Allah, "O My slave, you are all sinners but the one whom I protect. So demand absolution of your sins from Me. I shall forgive you. Whoever believes in My All-Powerfulness that only Allah can write off sins of those who seek forgiveness through the agency of My All-Powerfulness." We learn from this divine tradition:-
* Man should not feel pride in his piety and virtue. As much virtue increases, humility should also multiply with that ratio.
* Every Muslim should seek Istighfaar in abundance.
* The best method of seeking forgiveness is to seek forgiveness through the agency of Allah's All-Powerfulness. It may be in your own tongue or in Arabic اَللّٰھُمَّ اغْفِرْلِیْ بِقُدْرَتِکَ or اَللّٰھُمَّ اَنْتَ عَلیٰ کُلِّ شَیْئٍ قَدِیْرٌ اِغْفِرْلِیْ بِقُدْرَتِکَ or اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنِّیْ اَسْتَغْفِرُکَ بِقُدْرَتِکَ or any other words. You should be sure that Allah is All-Powerful over everything. He has the power to write of your sins and forgive you. Make this All-Powerfulness of Allah a source and seek forgiveness with full faith. We find a supplication of Hazrat Imaam Sufiaan Sauri and Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal wherein forgiveness has been sought by making Allah's powerfulness a source. Note the incident:
Forgiveness Through Allah's All-Powerfulness: Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Khuzaimah Sakandaraani says that he was greatly shocked at the death of Ahmad bin Hanbal. He saw him in dream walking in coquetry. He said, "What is this walk, Abu Abdullah?" He said "It is walk of the servants in Dar-us-Salaam." He said, How did Allah deal with you?" He said, "Allah forgave me coronaing me with a golden crown and golden shoes saying: O Ahmad, all this honour is owing to your faith in the Holy Quran as immortal words." Then Allah said, "Recite the supplication now which reached you through Sufiaan Sauri which you would recite in the world." He said یَا رَبَّ کُلِّ شَیْئٍ بِقُدْرَتِکَ عَلیٰ کُلِّ شَیْئٍ اِغْفِرْلِیْ کُلَّ شَیْئٍ حَتّٰی لَا تَسْئَلْنِیْ عَنْ شَیْئٍ (O the Lord of everything, forgive me through the agency of Your Power over everything so much so I may not be reckoned for anything.) Allah said, "O Ahmad, this is the Paradise. Stand up and enter it." (Fazaail Huffaaz-ul-Quran, p: 1199)
We should keep praying to Allah recalling our sins and shedding tears believing in Allah's All-Powerfulness and forgiveness.
The Day of Rain of Forgiveness: The day of 9th Zul-Hajjah is called the Day of 'Arafah. This day is very excellent and priceless. The most important pillar of Hajj i.e. stay at 'Arafah is performed on this day. The Holy Prophetﷺ has called supplication on the day of 'Arafah the best supplication saying خیرالدعاء دعاء یوم عرفۃ The best supplication is the supplication on the Day of 'Arafah. This is the Day when Allah forgives maximum people ridding the countless of hell. It is reported in Al-Muslim: ''ما من یوم اکثر من ان یعتق اللّٰہ فیہ عبدا من النار من یوم عرفۃ There is no other day when Allah rids as many people of hell as on the day of 'Arafah.
Fasting on the day of 'Arafah is very precious. Two years' sins are written off due to this fasting i.e. the past year and the coming year. Allah is , surely, All-Powerful over everything.
We should try this year to spend the day of 'Arafah in the best possible way and be forgiven by Allah. A precious practice for the pilgrims on the day of 'Arafah has been mentioned in books on traditions. Actually, this practice is for the pilgrims who are in the plain of 'Arafaat on the Day of 'Arafah but if we do this practice staying in our homes or Masjid, I hope that Allah shall bless us.
Practice On The Day of 'Arafah: Imaam Baihaqi reports from Hazrat Jaabir in Sha'b-ul-Emaan that the holy Prophetﷺ says: The Muslim who stands facing Qiblah after the decline of the sun on the of 'Arafah and recites لَااِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللّٰہُ وَحْدَہٗ لَاشَرِیْکَ لَہٗ،لَہُ الْمُلْکُ وَلَہُ الْحَمْدُ وَھُوَ عَلیٰ کُلِّ شَیْئٍ قَدِیْرٌ''for one hundred times then recites قُلْ ھُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَد (full Surah) for one hundred times, then recites the following Durood for one hundred times اَللّٰھُمَّ صَلِّ عَلیٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّعَلیٰ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ کَمَا صَلَّیْتَ عَلیٰ اِبْرَاہِیْمَ وَعَلیٰ آلِ اِبْرَاہِیْمَ اِنَّکَ حَمِیْدٌ مَّجِیْدٌ وَعَلَیْنَا مَعَھُمْ Allah says to the angels, "What is the reward for this slave? He has proclaimed My purity, My greatness and My Grandeur demanding forgiveness from Me stating My dignity and reciting Durood at My Prophet. O angels, be witness that I have absolved him and have accepted intercession about his Self. If My slave intercedes for all the people in the plain of 'Arafaat, I shall accept his intercession in favour of all of them.
It is a very useful and easy practice. Convey it to the pilgrims. Commit it to your memory so that you may practise it when Allah grants you with the capacity to go to 'Arafaat. We should practice it this year while staying at our dwellings then supplicating to Allah. This practice contains Surah Akhlass which has numerous excellences. It contains fourth Kalimah about which the Holy Prophetﷺ says, "The best thing that I and my past Prophets did is َلَااِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللّٰہُ وَحْدَہٗ لَاشَرِیْکَ لَہٗ،لَہُ الْمُلْکُ وَلَہُ الْحَمْدُ وَھُوَ عَلیٰ کُلِّ شَیْئٍ قَدِیْرٌ (At-tirmizi)
There is Durood Ibrahimi in this practice which is the bet, the most elevated and the highest Durood. If people come to know the excellences of Ibrahimi Durood, they may remain busy with it all the time. Reciting Durood other than Ibrahimi Durood for hundreds of times is not equal to Ibrahimi Durood for one time. There are words ''وَعَلَیْنَا مَعَھُمْ at the end of the Durood Ibrahimi of practice which means that there should be mercy on us also along him.
The above are the priceless gifts for today. May Allah accept them! There may be break in the publication of the newspaper next week. So advance Eid congratulations to the entire Muslim Ummah and particularly to you. تقبل اللّٰہ مناومنکم
لَااِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللّٰہُ وَحْدَہٗ لَاشَرِیْکَ لَہٗ،لَہُ الْمُلْکُ وَلَہُ الْحَمْدُ وَھُوَ عَلیٰ کُلِّ شَیْئٍ قَدِیْرٌ

لا الہ الا اللّٰہ، لا الہ الا اللّٰہ ،لا الہ الا اللّٰہ محمد رسول اللّٰہ

اللہم صل علی سیدنا محمد والہ وصحبہ وبارک وسلم تسلیما کثیرا کثیرا

لا الہ الا اللّٰہ محمد رسول اللّٰہ
