632-A METHOD OF DELIVERANCE FROM COWARDICE

A METHOD OF DELIVERANCE FROM COWARDICE

Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 632)

The Holy Prophet says, اعلموا ان الجنۃ تحت ظلال السیوف "Know well that the Paradise lies under the shade of swords." (Al-Bukhari) Allah chose Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed as Allah's Sword sayingنعم عبد اللّٰہ ھذا سیف من سیوف اللّٰہ Khalid is Allah's chosen slave and one of Allah's swords." (Tirmizi)
Think a little please that the Paradise lies under the shade of swords and Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed is Allah's Sword. Let us seek shade of that sword. Let's develop link with that sword so that we may be admitted to the Paradise, be blessed with valour, bravery, contentment, peace and success. Surely, Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed is Allah's Sword. Only Allah runs that sword. When the sword belongs to Allah, Allah runs it. Then that sword worked so much that the shade of the Paradise spread far and wide to the areas where there was hell everywhere with no person of the Paradise anywhere, there was the faith of hell, deeds of hell and people of the hell everywhere. When Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed advanced to those lands, Paradise prevailed over there. Iraq, Damascus, Palestine and Syria all were upset for the fragrance of the Paradise. There was infidelity and oppression, ignorance and darkness, immodesty and sensuality in the name of culture everywhere. Allah's Sword, Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed, reached there and waged Jihaad. When the sword worked there, those areas were filled with fragrance of the Paradise. The truthful, the Shuhada and the holy people began to be born on those lands. Azan began to echo there and infidelity was replaced with faith. Someone has made very good research that so great conquerors passed in the past but victories of none of them are so lasting as that of Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed. The Mongols and the Tartars occupied almost half the world but then their empire shrunk to a small country. The same situation befell the British, the French, and other conquerors but the lands conquered by Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed are still under the occupation of the Muslims in one way or the other. Reading this research, the point struck me that the Paradise lies under the shade of swords. What will be the status of Allah's Sword when common Jihaad swords hold this importance? Wherever this sword glistened, wherever it worked, Paradise was populated under it. That land is still populated by the grace of Allah because faith as well as virtuous deeds exist in those lands even now. Surely, no deed is equal to Jihaad. How long can a pious devotee worship? How much can a generous give in charity? But a Mujaahid and a conqueror can accumulate deeds of centuries and can light the candle of faith in it. He has a share in the faith and virtuous deeds of the believers of those areas.
It is a fact that all the calculators and mathematicians of the world cannot assess one day's deeds of a Mujaahid. As Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed is certainly Allah's sword and the Paradise dies under the shade of sword, it is certain that there will be wonderful peace in talk about him. One is not satiated however much one reads rather reading his situation, incidents and sayings, fondness is multiplied and the heart feels a strange type of purity and might because Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed had great miracles. Allama ibn Hajr writes: اتی خالد بن الولید رجل معہ زق خمر فقال اللھم اجعلہ عسلا فصار عسلا "A man came to Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed. He had a bag filled with wine. Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed prayed to Allah to make it honey. So it became honey."
One of authentic incidents is that he poured a dangerous poison at his plam and drank it after reciting بسم اللہ. (with the name of Allah). That fatal poison caused him no harm. Actually, when he advanced to non-Arabia for Jihaad, his awe and terror shook the countries, so conspiracies to kill him arose everywhere. Then someone advised him to be careful in eating because his enemies wanted to poison him. He said, "What poison? Bring it to me." Poison was brought. He poured it at his palm and drank it reciting بسم اللہ. The efficacy of true sword of Allah was that when supplication was cast at unholy wine, it became honey. These days, hearts are filled with the poison of worldliness and filth of cowardice. Surely, cowardice is more unholy and filthy than wine. Effect of wine lasts for a short time and it pushes man into disgrace whereas the effect of cowardice pushes man into permanent disgrace and slavery. Actual basis of all the vices and seditions against Jihaad these days is cowardice and worldliness. We are afraid lest we should die or lest someone should kill us because we are weak; we can't fight and we are to live longer etc. Then cowardice itself coins other false excuses. For example, positive and negative decrees about Jihaad are brought these days. Do those decrees have any path to practical Jihaad for the Muslims? If those people had made preparations for Jihaad, had been anxious to wage Jihaad with sword in their hands and the horses panting under them, and then they had said that they were ready but were withheld due to lack of such and such Shari'ah condition, and that they had been trying to fulfil that condition so that they could advance to the field of Jihaad, their words would have carried weight. But they have neither any intention for Jihaad nor thinking nor yearning nor preparation for Jihaad. Then what decrees and what conditions? If only they had guided the Muslims to Jihaad telling them that they were also advancing to it. If only they had called Jihaad in the way of Allah a practical deed. Are they to seek permission from the president? When does Mamnoon Hussain hold the court to grant them permission for Jihaad? Will Jihaad be waged at the orders of Nawaz Sharif and Zardari? How will permission for Jihaad be sought when both these individuals are in the lap of their Pagan enemies? Jihaad is the responsibility of the state. Which state do we mean by state? Whose words in the state will be authentic? Who will have the power of decision? Will it be compulsory to be a duly servant for Jihaad? How will a Muslim be able to perform this obligation without service if he wills? No question has any answer. The only object is not to wage Jihaad. Is it not equal to inviting Allah's open punishment? Allah's open punishment comes down, disgrace is imposed on the Muslims and the earth is filled with sins and disruption when Jihaad stops. One method of removing cowardice from the heart is that we should gain the learned and spiritual company of Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed, study his life and his incidents. Becoming Allah's sword, he remained steeped is blood all his life. Possibly, we may also gain this fondness and state due to his blessings. As he was complete Jihaad, embodiment of Jihaad and real Jihaad so there is persuasion in his words and deeds so much so when he was about to leave this world, all his attention was directed to Jihaad. So he donated all his property and belongings to Jihaad. He had already donated all this. He just reminded his heirs at the time of his demise. Then he gave a message to all the Muslims of the world, "Why do you not wage Jihaad? Are you afraid of death? Lo! See! there is no death in Jihaad. Look at my body. No place is free of the wounds of Jihaad. The entire body is injured. I rushed at death wherever I found it. I plunged into the campaign where no possibility of safe return was possible. Lo! See! I did not die. I am dying on my bed." Expressing this yearning for Shuhaadat, he spent last moments of his life in Jihaad whereas his death was many times better than Shahaadat. He held higher position than Shuhada. He was Allah's sword It was not in anyone's powers in this world to break or mould that sword. Allah be praised, monthly "The Al-Muraabitoon" is bringing out a special edition on Hazrat Khahlid bin Waleed. I have also got the good luck to write an article on it under the topic "Allah's Sword." Acquire this journal and carry it to others. Allah likes to see His dear slaves in Jihaad. Allah's love for Jihaad is so deep that He makes His chosen slaves His sword. How lucky are the brave who become Allah's Sword. What a difference between slavery stricken unholy life of cowardice and Allah's flashing and working swords? O Allah, be kind to us. Ridding us of cowardice, protect us against the filth of the world and bless us with link with Allah's Sword!
