32 .MOULOOD AND THE SHARIAH
IBAADAT (WORSHIP) IN ISLAM is restricted to only ritual acts, practices and customs of worship which were taught by Rasulullah ( saws ) and practised by his noble Companions and the illustrious personalities of Islam in the initial three eras of Islam known as Khairul Quroon (Noblest Ages). Irrespective of the appeal and beauty any act/practice of apparent worship may possess, it will not be Ibaadat in Islam if it has no basis in the Sunnah of Rasulullah ( saws) – and the concept of the Sunnah is what was known, understood, practised and propagated by the Sahaabah, Taabieen and Tab-e-Taabieen in the period known as Khairul Quroon. Thus, if anyone insists on performing Salaat at sunrise, midday (Zawwaal) and sunset, it will not be said that such performance is Salaat. It will be a haraam bid’ah (innovation) notwithstanding its external form of Salaat. If someone fasts on the Days of Eid, such fasting will not be Ibaadat, but will be haraam bid’ah, the consequence of which is nothing but the Fire of Jahannum. Since these acts which are in conflict with the teachings of Rasulullah ( saws), they will not be classified as Ibaadat notwithstanding their external forms of worship. If someone performs four raka’ts ‘Fardh’ for Fajr instead of the commanded two raka’ts, such performance will not be Ibaadat irrespective of the beauty of the external form of the act. It will be a haraam bid’ah.

THE EFFECT OF THIKR

A Sheikh who was saved by Allah Ta`ala when he was overwhelmed by the love of a beautiful woman, saw Hadhrat Nabi Yusuf (alayhis salaam) in a dream. The Sheikh (in the dream) said: "O Nabi of Allah! May Allah Ta`ala keep your eyes cool. Allah Ta`ala saved you from Zulaikha." In response, Nabi Yusuf (alayhis salaam) said: "O Blessed o­ne! May Allah keep your eyes cool. You have been saved from the woman of the Tribe of Asfaan." Hadhrat Yusuf (alayhis salaam) then recited very softly the following Aayat:

"Verily, for the o­ne who fears the Rank of Allah will be two Orchards."

A Buzrug commented:

"A man cannot save himself from the snares of the nafs by his own efforts. He is saved by the aid of Allah Ta`ala, from the evil of the nafs."

Seek comfort from Allah. Do not attempt to seek comfort without Allah. Whoever derives comfort from Allah, has been saved. Whoever sought comfort by abandoning Allah, was destroyed.

The heart derives rest in the Thikr of Allah. Searching for rest besides Allah is a sign of perpetual ghaflat (obliviousness).

Sheikh Abu Abdullah Muhammad Bin Ali Tirmizi Hakeem (rahmatullah alayh) said: "The Thikr of Allah moistens the heart and cultivates tenderness in it. When the heart is bereft of Thikrullah, the heat of the nafs overtakes it; the fire of lust reaches it; the heart becomes barren and hard, and all the limbs refrain from obedience to Allah Ta`ala."

Sheikh Abdullah Bin Fadhl (rahmatullah alayhi)said: "Lamentable is the condition of the person who goes through numerous difficulties and hardships travelling through the wilderness to reach his family at his home, but he does not cut asunder his nafsaani desires to reach the heart in which the signs of his Friend (Allah Ta`ala) are manifest."

Sheikh Abu Turaab Bakshi (rahmatullah alayh) said: "Whoever turns away from Allah Ta`ala after being engrossed with Him (with His Remembrance), he will immediately become involved in the Wrath of Allah Ta`ala."
