Inspirational Quotes

By: Shaykh Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh

 

Valued when Rare


“It is much better to be humble than proud! It is an accepted fact that whatever is rare holds great value. Take the example of diamonds or gold; because they are scarce and difficult to acquire, people value them with great desire to posses them.

Keeping this in mind, look at the condition of the people around you. You will find those who are proud and also those who are humble.

 

Unfortunately, during our time those that are proud and arrogant hugely outweigh those who are humble; humbleness has become a very scarce quality.

 

Thus people will be attracted to those who possess humility just as they are attracted to other rare items in this world.”

The Obligatory Nature of Hajj

By: Shaykh Mawlana Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahulah

The advent of the month of Shawwāl brings with it the remembrance of Ibrāhīm ‘alayhis salām and his memorable hajj. All over the world, those who are fortunate make preparations for this great spiritual experience. Hajj is from the five pillars of Islām and is fard upon every sane and mature believer who possesses the means to perform hajj. Allāh ta‘ālā mentions in the Glorious Qur’ān:

“…As a right of Allāh, it is obligatory on the people to perform hajj of the House – on everyone who has the ability to manage (his) way to it.” (3:97)

The Prophet sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam has said:

“Islām is founded on five (pillars): bearing witness that there is no deity except Allāh and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allāh, establishing salāh, paying zakāh, performing hajj and fasting in the month of Ramadān.” (Al-Bukhārī)

In another hadīth, he said: “O people! Indeed Allāh, the Mighty, the Exalted has made hajj obligatory upon you; therefore perform hajj.” (Ahmad)

At a very young age, when in need of the support of his father, Ibrāhīm ‘alayhis salām was compelled to leave him. Then, during the final stages of his life, when in his old age and in need of the support of his young son, he was commanded by Allāh ta‘ālā to sacrifice him. Without hesitation, he was ready to submit to the Will of his Creator. Allāh ta‘ālā says:
