629-TWO TASKS

TWO TASKS

Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 629)

We demand every good from Allah whether we know it or not. We demand from Allah shelter against every wickedness whether we know it or not. اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنَّا نَسْئَلُکَ مِنَ الْخَیْرِ کُلِّہٖ عَاجِلِہٖ وَاٰجِلِہٖ مَا عَلِمْنَا مِنْہُ وَمَا لَمْ نَعْلَمْ وَنَعُوْذُ بِکَ مِنَ الشَّرِّکُلِّہٖ عَاجِلِہٖ وَاٰجِلِہٖ مَا عَلِمْنَا مِنْہُ وَمَا لَمْ نَعْلَمْ

The Earth and Time are Becoming Rapid: The earth is advancing to the Day of Judgement. The time is also moving nearer to the Day of Judgement. As the Day of Judgement is approaching, the earth is growing rapid, time is also accelerating. Formerly people would live and die gradually. They would get pleased or were worried gradually. Now, everything has accelerated. We live in a hurry, die in a hurry and worry in a hurry. Peace of mind is vanishing. Everyone has more than ten appointments at one moment. He is present at ten spots through mobile phone. The members of his family draw him back, the officials pull him ahead, the patients in the hospital upset him; the people of marriage want him join their marriage and some futile people send him useless Apps. You can estimate the rapidity of earth and time from the fact that you will find progress and increase wherever you go. For example, if treatments have been multiplied, diseases have also multiplied. Hospitals have increased great in number but the number of diseases have also increased manifold. Courts, police stations and law enforcing agencies have increased but oppressors, culprits and killers have also increased with it. The doctors say that so many life saving drugs has been discovered but more people are dying than before. Centers for sins have increased. Centers for virtues have also multiplied many times. The number of the rich has increased but poverty has also spread. Institutions to enforce law have increased but lawlessness has also prevailed everywhere. There is all progress and all addition everywhere. It becomes known that the earth and time have become rapid. Whoever wants to do something, can do very hurriedly now. The believers should make use of this situation and do and spread virtue rapidly lest rapid seditions and sins enter their houses and catch their necks if they show any negligence.
In this rapidity of earth and time, if we cannot gain good and avoid wickedness, we shall have to do two deeds. First deed is protection of our time. Second deed is a good planning. We should control our time without wasting it and make a strong and good plan to lead life.
Causes of Loss: The Muslim who wastes his time is at a great loss. This is the decree of the Holy Quran. We have very short time during which we are to make provisions for the grave and the Hereafter. How long will be life in the grave? How long will be the Day of Resurrection? How long and eternal is the age of the Hereafter? If we think over it, we are perspired but so many big seditions to waste our time have spread around us. How difficult it is to watch news these days? By watching, I mean reading newspapers not watching TV because TV itself is the symbol of disease and calamity. Sorrowfully, there are very few who hate TV these days. Those few are also skipping to photography, videos and picturing. Alas! Photography and videos have snatched away the blessings and population of the pulpit. When the speaker comes to know that his video is prepared, all his attention is directed to embellishment and pretension whereas the preacher of Din in the past delivered his lecture at the pulpit of the Prophetﷺ. His sincerity and hearty yearnings were more effective than his speech. The popular preachers of the Ummah would observe ablution before their speech. Then they would establish Salaat Istikhaarah and Salaat Haajah and seek help from Allah. Then they sought forgiveness from Allah lest they should be punished for their speech on the Day of Judgement because of the fact that they taught others but they themselves did not act upon their words. When the speaker ascended the pulpit after reciting Durood and having compassions for the Muslim Ummah, he was filled with sincerity, humility, meekness and anxiety to seek from Allah through his speech for himself and the assemblage. These days, the worry is where the camera is to be installed. What is to be applied on the face? Alas! the resplendent assemblages have been depopulated!
May Allah forgive the photographers who do not let us even die in peace! When man is in the battle of life and death, these people begin to make his videos instead of requesting him to recite the Kalimah or they begin to show his death scene to the relatives sitting far away or they try to contact them with the photo. O Muslims! Fear Allah. Keep Ka'bah, holy Gave, Masjid Nabvi, Mina, Arafaat, Muzdalfa, dying Muslims and religious assemblages free of photography for the sake of Allah. Allah runs the task of Din for centuries without sins if He so wills. The writings and speeches of the leaders, jurists and exegetes of the Muslim Ummah are still safe till today. I was saying that TV is normally the centre of sins but watching news in newspapers has also become very difficult. I generally study five major newspapers daily particularly when I am to write the column. Then I feel that man is walking bare-foot on thorny land. Most of the news and columns are unholy. The mishap of an innocent girl Zainab occurred. The newspapers published news as if it were the occasion of making merry.
I could not study full detail of that incident. My heart began to weep reading headlines the very first day. I began to supplicate that Allah might protect the sisters and daughters of every Muslim. How horrible and painful is the news? Thinking of it, the body shudders with pain. It does not become of a human to make such news spicy, to write about all of its aspects and politicise it again and again. Then every newspaper is full of shameful and vulgar news. Reading such news is a sin and avoiding it is a great virtue. In short, so many seditions spread all around us which want to waste our precious time. So spend your rapid life carefully and avoid causes of loss becaue the causes of loss make us waste our time in sins or filth.
Two Contagious Sins of this Age: Some people load every useless thing in their mobiles. Then they begin to share it with everyone who confronts. This is a dangerous contagious sin. Try to load only good things in your mobile phone because death can visit any moment. There should be neither any film nor song nor drama nor tit-bits nor games nor trifles nor awe-inspirations in your mobile phone nor think of showing others, pestering others and sending others except useful speeches and religious persuasions. Secondly, never present a mobile phone, laptop or computer to anyone in this age. Its detail is very heart-rending. Just believe me and make it your routine.
Planning: First task is not to waste your time. I have given its detail metaphorically. Second task is planning. Recently, we had a practice through messages which gave wonderful results and benefits as we have fixed a task for the good-pleasure of Allah and provisions for the Hereafter spending full week in working on it. Allah be praised that this minor incident changed the lives of so many individuals; thousands of people memorized essential supplications, perceived the ruling of Shahaadat, became firm in performing obligations and caught so many moments of life. You will ask, "What does catching time mean?" Understand it with the help of an example. The time when Hazrat Imaam Bukhaari was writing Al-Bukhaari and Shah Abdul-Qaadir was writing "Muzih-up-Quran" is still going on. It is not coming to an end. On the other hand, they caught those days of their lives so firmly that they have become centuries after multiplicity. Al-Bukhaari is still read at thousands of places daily. If the said Imaam had spent this time in eating, drinking and gossiping, it would have ended but he caught it and owned it. Now that time is useful for him and has become a foundry for their asset in the Hereafter.
This is called catching time. Those who do not catch time, go to waste and meet loss. Those who catch most of their time and captivate it, score great success and achieve wonders. We should control most of our time through good planning. For example, we should fix a day in every week and resolve, "I am to do such and such good deed this week. I am to memorise a Surah, understand a chapter of the Holy Quran, get a lesson on knowledge, study a good book or listen to a good lecture, learn a virtuous deed, learn skill of virtue, memorise a supplication, make a firm routine, or a special state of Zikr, make a routine to expend on Jihaad daily, give something in charity daily and remove some of my fault etc. etc. Then do that task all the week firmly and punctually and gain that bounty. An anxiety strikes here. Many people will raise the objection, "Weekly sequence is not fair in Islam. There is sequence of decade in Islam. Why do you persuade to weekly persuasion?" The answer is, "Calling weekly sequence against Islam is false. Some people have concocted it. The sequence of Friday in Islam is weekly which is sufficient for us. Moreover, getting busy with this type of useless discussion is also waste of time." May Allah bless us all with all good and protect us against every wickedness! Aamin!
