KIND WORDS AND KIND ACTIONS

KIND WORDS AND KIND ACTIONS


Bismiallah ir rahmaan ir raheem.

It was narrated on the authority of Abu Hurariah that:

Abu Bakr (ra) and Imam Ali (ra) both wanted to see the Messenger Muhammad (saw). They went to his (saw) house and arrived at his (saw) doorstep. Abu Bakr (ra) said to Ali (ra) “You go in first.” Ali (ra) replied “Please you knock and you go before me.” Abu Bakr (ra) insisted that Ali (ra) should go before him. Ali (ra) said “I will never go in front of a man of whom the Messenger Muhammad (saw) said, the sun never rises and sets on any man better than Abu Bakr.” Abu Bakr (ra) said, “How can I go before the person of whom the Messenger Muhammad (saw) said, the best woman (Fatima ra) was given to the best man (Ali).” Ali (ra) said, “I will never enter before the person of whom the Messenger Muhammad (saw) said on the Day of Judgement a call will come from the Almighty Allah (swt) saying, O Abu Bakr you and the ones that love you enter Jannah.” Abu Bakr (ra) said, “I will never go before you because you will come riding on the Day of Judgement and it will be said that he (Ali) was a good man, a good brother, a good father.” Ali (ra) said I will never go before you when the Messenger Muhammad (saw) said that if the imaan of Abu Bakr was placed on one side of a scale and the imaan of the rest of the ummah was placed on the other side, the imaan of Abu Bakr would outweigh the imaan of the ummah.”

Maulana says that shaitan's mission is to hide the truth, and to spread falsehood in its place. He works to subtly change the mindset and thinking of a human being, until they abandon the truth and stray away from guidance, and begin pursuing this worldly life, perishing in evil.

Allah Almighty must be mentioned at the start of every act, and every deed must be done for Him, in His Name, for His Pleasure. Just like the old passports of the Colony of Cyprus, that contained the message, “On behalf of the King of the British Empire......”, we should be doing everything on His behalf, in His Name, that is the correct adab, protocol in Islam. That is why we start each act with Bismillahir Ramanir Rahim, and it is shaitan's wish to remove this heavenly protocol. Shaitan's protocol is to teach Man to reject his Creator, the Real Owner of everything. When Man no longer acts for Allah, in His Name, his honour and position is lost.
