Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 610)

May Allah bless us with instant good and protect us against sudden evil. اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنَّا نَسْئَلُکَ مِنْ فُجَائَ ۃِالْخَیْرِ وَنَعُوْذُ بِکَ مِنْ فُجَائَ ۃِ الشَّرِّ
Sudden, Sudden: Sometimes good knocks at man's door all of a sudden when he is asleep consequently his life is filled with light and delight. It also happens that an evil visits man all of a sudden when he is asleep and fills his life with grief, misery and thorns. I have witnessed so many glad tidings visiting me suddenly الحمد للہ رب العالمین and also sudden wickednesses. الحمد للہ رب العالمین علی کل حال This same will be the case with all of you. You will have witnessed instant glad tidings and sudden evils. We have been taught a supplication through a tradition, "Always demand instant glad tidings from Allah and seek refuge against sudden evil." Sudden evil causes man lose his senses. So many people lose decisive power. Whenever sudden evil visits, man makes so many wrong decisions and takes so many wrong steps. Everyone cannot face sudden evil. Some people are so perturbed that they indulge themselves in infidelity. So supplicate اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنَّا نَسْئَلُکَ مِنْ فُجَائَ ۃِالْخَیْرِ وَنَعُوْذُ بِکَ مِنْ فُجَائَ ۃِ الشَّرِّ
What Should Be Done?: The Holy Quran has guided us on this topic again and again. May Allah grant us with the power and capacity to understand the Holy Quran! The Holy Quran solved the problem in a moment. Get busy with virtue if good comes but observe patience when evil visits. This is the path to success. The situation keeps changing. Quite recently, the Muslims of Burma were in their houses as man feels satisfaction in his own house no matter it is mud or cemented house. But the situation changed suddenly and they were constrained to lead the life of the refugees. Emigration is a thing of great esteem in Islam. But when we overlooked the Holy Quran, our mentality changed. Now, the emigrant is considered mean by the Muslims even. Allah has given emigration top priority in faith. Allah has given emigrants top priority to receive Fai wealth which is the holiest wealth. Allah has blessed emigrants with highest ranks of all. Allah has sent down special excellences and special dictates in honour of the emigrants giving the Muslims the fondness to become helpers and supporter of the emigrants. In this way, they will also be blessed with high ranks. But, God forbid, emigration has become an evil and emigrant a word of abuse. People pay them money considering them mean. When the door to emigration closes, the Muslims are deprived of general Jihaad. When the Muslims are deprived of Jihaad, they are caught in punishment. The situation of the Muslims of Burma changed all of a sudden and they became wayfarers. They were constrained to take up the life of refugees. They had their own home till yesterday. Today, they have nothing. یُقَلِّبُ اللّٰہُ اللَّیْلَ وَالنَّھَارَ This thing can befall anyone anytime. Sometimes, good comes suddenly but at times evil visits suddenly. The Muslim should not be negligent if good comes rather he should multiply virtuous deeds. He should not be crest-fallen if evil visits but observe patience. He should analyze the situation placing his trust in Allah and try to seek out ways to change evil into good. Then there is all success for a Mu'min in good as well as evil. وَنَبْلُوْکُمْ بِالشَّرِّ وَالْخَیْرِ فِتْنَۃ
Inner Attributes: Understand a wonderful point. If man demands capacity from Allah and creates good attributes in him, those attributes are useful for him at the time of good as well as evil. It is said about a man that he was visited by evil all of a sudden and was thrown much away from his home without any penny on him. It was in a state as a man is buried in a grave all of a sudden removed from his home and without any bread, clothing and place to live. But he had brightened his inner attributes. He was a good Haafiz of the Holy Quran understanding it fully. Reaching a new village, he sat in a Masjid. In the beginning, people gave him food considering him a traveller. When the Quranic luminosity in him began to show out, all the people were attached with him. People began to learn the Holy Quran from him. Someone gave him his own house to live. A wealthy Muslim made him his son-in-law. He began to supplicate beseechingly, "O Allah, I had learnt the Holy Quran to avoid trouble and loneliness in the grave, gain success in the Hereafter and win Your good-pleasure but it has protected my world against becoming a grave." Witnessing this scene, there was increase in his faith and sincerity. When Mughal Emperors of India were attacked by evil suddenly and the kings were rendered beggars in a day; those who had inner attributes were not lost nor were indulged in infidelity nor indigence; those who were deprived of inner attributes and had become emperors due to lineage, fell a prey to big calamities and seditions. If they had the knowledge of Din and faith, they would not have developed misgivings against Allah. When man develops misgivings about Allah, saying, "My Lord has deserted me" he is rendered good for nothing. He falls in Infidelity and polytheism and is gripped by slavery and disgrace of indigence.
The Muslims should build up their innerself, inculcate in them the qualities of faith, knowledge and different methods of earning lawful wealth. Then if evil visits them all of a sudden, they will not feel themselves helpless. Their inner qualities will come out and control their faith, their honour and problems. May Allah bless us all with real inner qualities!
Take An Example: When USSR attacked Afghanistan, millions of Muslims had to emigrate. The Afghan Muslims are hardworking and they lead simple lives. They underwent the pains of emigration happily. Allah blessed them with the bounty of most successful Jihaad. They wiped out USSR and then inflicted defeat on America and the NATO. Of the Afghan emigrants embellished with inner qualities, they spent only a very few days of emigration. Then their inner qualities made them honourable. Allah is always kind to the capable people because they are the dear slaves of Allah. They do not waste the time given by Allah. They make it precious by inculcating in them qualities of work. The learned people among the Afghan emigrants were welcomed by everyone everywhere. The skilled people were honoured everywhere. The honest ones were respected by the Muslims and became the most successful emigrants. Those who took up the path of Jihaad making arrangements to provide some shelter to their children and leapt for Jihaad at once, were blessed by Allah with ever new bounties. Allah blessed their children also with great affluence. Those who were devoid of inner qualities were indulged in sins, crimes and vices. Many were deprived of faith and many others were severed from their culture and nation.
This Situation Can Befall Anyone: The situation can change anyone any moment. I clearly remember that when I got up on Friday in Kot Bhalwal jail, I was imprisoned. But the process of release started so suddenly and rapidly that life changed all of a sudden. Six years before that, I move about freely. One day, I was exchanging old incidents with commander Sajjad Shaheed when Indian army encircled us and our lives were confined to a dark cell.
This process of change of situation can befall anyone anytime so we should be ever ready to face any situation. We should make our time precious by demanding capacity from Allah and by inculcating good qualities in us. We should befriend the Holy Quran because we may die any moment and we may be buried in the graves. We should pay back our debts. We must write the detail of the property as which one belongs to us and which one is collective asset. We should think of the Hereafter the maximum so that we may not attach much importance to the situation in the world. May Allah bless us with sudden good in abundance and protect us against the sudden evils! اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنَّا نَسْئَلُکَ مِنْ فُجَائَ ۃِالْخَیْرِ وَنَعُوْذُ بِکَ مِنْ فُجَائَ ۃِ الشَّرِّ

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
