Photo: Twitter KABUL: Pakistan's National Security Adviser (NSA) Lt Gen (retd) Nasser Janjua met Afghanistan's Chief Executive Dr Abdullah Abdullah during his visit to the neighbouring country. Janjua was visiting Kabul on a one-day trip on the invitation of his Afghan counterpart, Haneef Atmar. In the meeting, details of which were shared by Abdullah on his Twitter account, the two agreed that the Taliban should utilise the new and timely peace offer made by Kabul. Inter-state dialogues for improvement of relations between the two countries were also part of the meeting. Earlier on Saturday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani met Janjua and invited Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to "initiate state to state comprehensive dialogue". The NSA had said in the meeting that Pakistan was ready to make all possible efforts for lasting peace in Afghanistan. Janjua also met Atmar and discussed bilateral relations and regional security issues. A spokesperson of the NSA had earlier observed that a peaceful Afghanistan is a guarantee to lasting peace at home. The representatives of the neighbouring countries are expected to formulate a policy to work together and chalk out a way forward to improve bilateral relations and enhance cooperation. On February 3, Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua, while addressing the Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Solidarity (APAPS) in Kabul, HAD remarked that Pakistan and Afghanistan should engage in concrete cooperation instead of blaming one another. A top-level delegation of Pakistan?s civil and military leadership, led by Foreign Secretary Janjua, had travelled to Afghanistan to attend the Pakistan-Afghanistan Joint Working Group meeting. Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal had confirmed the meeting and said Pakistan had proposed five joint working groups, focusing on ensuring a comprehensive engagement for countering terrorism, intelligence sharing, military, economy, trade and transit interaction, refugee repatriation and connectivity. The FO spokesperson had also reaffirmed that Pakistan will continue to support efforts for peace in Afghanistan, but the Afghan government needs to reach a settlement with different Afghan groups.

Adam Ya Abdullah ایڈم یا عبداللہ ایک بار ضرور پڑھیں میں نے کھانے کی ٹرے کھولی‘ کانٹے سے گوشت کا ٹکڑا اٹھایا‘ ہونٹوں کے قریب لے کر آیا مگر منہ میں ڈالنے سے قبل رک گیا‘مجھے محسوس ہوا یہ گوشت شاید حلال نہ ہو‘ میں نے یہ خیال آتے ہی کانٹا ٹرے میں رکھ دیا اور دائیں بائیں دیکھنے لگا‘ غیرملکی ائیر لائینز میں یہ معاملہ روٹین ہے‘ یہ لوگ حلال حرام کی تمیز نہیں رکھتے چنانچہ ان کی خوراک بالخصوص گوشت میںحرام کیگنجائش موجود ہوتی ہے‘ میں نے ٹرے آگے کھسکائی اور سیٹ کے ساتھ پشت لگا کر لیٹ گیا میرے ساتھ درمیانی عمر کا ایک خوبصورت امریکی بیٹھا تھا‘ وہ مزے سے کھانا کھا رہا تھا‘ ہم نیویارک سے شکاگو جا رہے تھے‘ میں نے ایک دن شکاگو میں رک کر آگے نکل جانا تھا‘ آپ کو انٹرنیٹ پر مختلف ”پے اینگ“ میزبان مل جاتے ہیں‘ آپ ویب سائیٹس پر جائیں اور کسی منزل کا نام ڈالیں‘ آپ سے مختلف فیملیز رابطہ کریں گی‘ یہ لوگ معمولی رقم لے کر آپ کو چند دنوں کےلئے اپنے گھر میں ٹھہرا لیتے ہیں‘ آپ کو ان ویب سائیٹس پر ایسی فیملیز بھی مل جاتی ہیں جو آپ کو اپنے پاس فری ٹھہرا لیتی ہیں ان کا مقصد اجنبی لوگوں سے ملاقات ہوتی ہے‘ یہ لوگ اجنبیوں کو اپناگھر‘ اپنا ٹاﺅن دکھانا چاہتی ہیں چنانچہ یہ لوگ اپنا گھر سال میں چند دنوں کےلئے اجنبیوں کےلئے کھول دیتے ہیں‘ میں نے شکاگو سے دو گھنٹے کی مسافت پر ایک گاﺅں میں ایسا ہی خاندان تلاش کیا تھا‘ یہ لوگ مکئی کاشت کرتے تھے اور سال میں ایک بار کسی ایشیائی باشندے کو اپنا مہمان بناتے تھے‘ میں نے انٹر نیٹ پر اس خاندان کو تلاش کیا اور اب میں نیویارک سے ان کے پاس ٹھہرنے اور شکاگو کی دیہاتی زندگی کو انجوائے کرنے جا رہا تھا لیکن جہاز میں حلال خوراک کا ایشو بن گیا میں نے لمبی سانس لی اور آنکھیں بند کر لیں ” برادر یہ کھانا حلال ہے‘ آپ کھا سکتے ہیں“ یہ فقرہ اچانک میری سماعت سے ٹکرایا‘ میں نے گھبرا کر آنکھیں کھولیں‘ میرا ہم سفر امریکی مسکراتی نظروں سے میری طرف دیکھ رہا تھا‘ اس نے میری آنکھوں میں حیرت پڑھ لی‘ وہ دوبارہ بولا ”آپ کا کھانا حلال ہے‘ آپ اطمینان سے کھا سکتے ہیں“ میں نے اس سے پوچھا ” آپ یہ دعوے سے کیسے کہہ سکتے ہیں“ اس نے اپنا کانٹا نیچے رکھا‘ میری ٹرے سے کھانے کا ریپر اٹھایا اور اس کے کونے پر انگلی رکھ دی‘ ریپر پر سبز لفظوں میں حلال لکھا تھا میں حیران ہو گیا‘ میں نے اطمینان سے کھانا شروع کر دیا‘ کھانے کے دوران میں نے اس سے اس کے وطن کے بارے میں پوچھا‘اس نے جواب دیا ” میں امریکی ہوں‘ آرلینڈو میں رہتا ہوں“ میں نے ڈرتے ڈرتے پوچھا ” کیا آپ مسلمان ہیں“ اس نے بلند آواز میں ”الحمداللہ“ کہا اور پھر بولا ” میں نے سات سال قبل اسلام قبول کیا تھا‘ میں آج کل عربی سیکھ رہا ہوں“ میری حیرت میں اضافہ ہو گیا‘میں نے اس سے پوچھا ” لیکن امریکن ائیر لائین میں حلال کھانا کیسے آ گیا“ وہ مسکرایا اور نرم آواز میں بولا ” میں جب بھی ہوائی سفر پر نکلتا ہوں‘ میں ائیر لائین کے کچن میں فون کر کے پانچ حلال کھانوں کا آرڈر کر دیتا ہوں“ میں نے پوچھا ” پانچ کیوں؟“ اس کا جواب بہت دلچسپ تھا‘ اس کا کہنا تھا ” امریکن ائیر لائین میں عموماً چارپانچ مسلمان مسافر ہوتے ہیں‘ میں مسلمان ہونے کی وجہ سے ان کا مسئلہ سمجھتا ہوں‘ میں جہاز میں سوار ہو کر عملے کی مدد سے مسلمان مسافروں کو تلاش کرتا ہوں اور بعد ازاں یہ حلال کھانا انہیں پہنچا دیتا ہوں‘ میںجب فلائیٹ میں سوار ہوا تو میں نے لسٹ میں آپ کا نام پڑھ لیا چنانچہ میں نے آپ کےلئے حلال خوراک کی درخواست کر دی اوریوں آپ کو بھی حلال کھانا فراہم کر دیا گیا“ میں نے اس سے پوچھا ”لیکن جہاز کا عملہ آپ کو مسافروں کی لسٹ کیوں دے دیتا ہے“ اس نے قہقہہ لگایا اور بتایا ” میں ایف بی آئی میں کام کرتا ہوں‘ میرا سروس کارڈ یہ مرحلہ آسان بنا دیتا ہے“۔وہ عبداللہ تھا‘ اس کا پرانا نام ایڈم تھا‘ وہ آرلینڈو کا رہنے والا تھا مگر ان دنوں وہ نیویارک میں کام کر رہا تھا‘ ٹریننگ کےلئے شکاگو جا رہا تھا‘ اس کے اسلام قبول کرنے کا واقعہ بھیاس کی شخصیت کی طرح حیران کن تھا‘ اس نے بتایا‘ وہ ٹیلی کام انجینئر تھا وہ ایک پرائیویٹ کمپنی میں کام کرتا تھا‘ اس کی والدہ کا انتقال ہو چکا تھا‘ والد دہریہ تھا‘ وہ بوڑھا ہو کر اولڈ پیپل ہوم میں پڑا تھا‘ اس کا اپنی گرل فرینڈ کے ساتھ جھگڑا ہوا‘ یہ جھگڑا طول پکڑ گیا‘ وہ شدید ڈپریشن کا شکار ہوا اور اس ڈپریشن نے اسے شراب‘ کوکین اور چرس کا عادی بنا دیا‘ وہ چوبیس گھنٹے نشے میں ڈوبا رہتا‘ اس کی راتیں شراب خانوں میں گزرتیں‘ وہ دھت ہو کر شراب خانے میں گر جاتا اور شراب خانے کے ملازمین اسے اٹھا کر فٹ پاتھ پر پھینک جاتے وہ اگلے دن اٹھتا تو گرتا پڑتا گھر پہنچتا‘ اس کی نوکری چلی گئی‘ اس کے سارے اثاثے بک گئے‘ اس پر دوست احباب کا قرض چڑھ گیا اور وہ پوری دنیا میں تنہا رہ گیا‘ وہ بری طرح برباد ہو چکا تھا لیکن پھر اس کے ساتھ ایک عجیب واقعہ پیش آیا‘ وہ ایک رات نشے میں دھت ہو کر شراب خانے میں گرا‘ شراب خانے کے سٹاف نے اسے اٹھایا اور فٹ پاتھ پر لٹا دیا‘ وہاں سے ایک نوجوان گزرا‘ اس نے اسے اٹھایا‘ وہ اسے اپنے فلیٹ میں لے آیا‘ گرم تولئے سے اس کا جسم صاف کیا‘ صاف سلیپنگ سوٹ پہنایا اور اسے صاف بستر پر لٹا دیا‘ صبح اس کی آنکھ کھلی تو اس نوجوان نے اسے ناشتہ کرایا‘ اپنے کپڑے پہنائے اور اسے اس کے فلیٹ پر چھوڑ آیا وہ اس رات دوبارہ شراب خانے گیا‘ اسے اس رات بھی حسب معمول فٹ پاتھ پر لٹا دیا گیا‘ وہ نوجوان دوبارہ آیا‘ اسے اٹھایا اور اپنے فلیٹ پر لے گیا اور اس کے بعد یہ معمول بن گیا‘ وہ روز رات کے آخری پہر فٹ پاتھ پر گرا دیا جاتا‘ وہ نوجوان آتا اور اسے اٹھا کر لے جاتا‘ یہ اس اجنبی نوجوان کے ساتھ بدتمیزی بھی کرتا لیکن وہ ہٹ کا پکا تھا‘ وہ مسکراتا رہتا اور اس کی خدمت کرتا رہتا‘ اس سارے عمل کے دوران معلوم ہوا‘ وہ نوجوان فلسطینی مسلمان ہے وہ پیزا ہٹ پر کام کرتا ہے اور فارغ وقت میں اس بگڑے ہوئے امریکی کی خدمت کرتا ہے‘ یہ سلسلہ چلتا رہا یہاں تک کہ وہ دونوں دوست بن گئے‘ ایڈم فلسطینی نوجوان عبداللہ کے رویئے اور خدمت سے متاثر ہوا اور آہستہ آہستہ اسلام کے حلقے میں داخل ہونے لگا اور پھر ایک دن اس نے اسلام قبول کر لیا‘ یہ اس کہانی کا ایک باب تھا‘ کہانی کا اگلا باب اس سے بھی زیادہ حیران کن تھا۔ایڈم نے اسلام قبول کرنے کے بعد اپنا نام عبداللہ رکھا اور اسلام کا مطالعہ شروع کر دیا‘ مطالعے کے دوران اسے معلوم ہوا اسلام میں والدین کا بہت مقام ہے‘ والدین کی خدمت کرنے والے لوگ جنتی ہوتے ہیں‘ یہ معلوم ہونے کے بعد عبداللہ سیدھا اولڈ پیپل ہوم گیا اور اپنے والد کو اپنے گھر لے آیا‘ اس کا والد کینسر کے مرض میں مبتلا ہو چکا تھا وہ دہریہ تھا‘ وہ کسی مذہب اور خدا پر یقین نہیں رکھتا تھا‘ اس نے پوری زندگی کوئی عبادت کی اور نہ ہی کسی مذہب کا مطالعہ۔ اس نے بس گستاخی میں پوری عمر گزار دی‘ عبداللہ ایڈم والد کو گھر لے آیا اور اس نے والد کی خدمت شروع کر دی‘ وہ ایک سٹور میں چار گھنٹے کام کرتا اور اس کے بعد گھر آ کر اپنے فلسطینی دوست کے ساتھ مل کر والد کو نہلاتا تھا‘ وہ اسے اپنے ہاتھوں سے کھانا بھی کھلاتا تھا‘ اسے ویل چیئر پر بٹھا کر سیر کےلئے بھی لے جاتا تھا‘ وہ اسے کتابیں پڑھ کر سناتا تھا اور اس کی باتیں سنتا تھا والد کےلئے یہ رویہ عجیب تھا‘ امریکا میں بچے اپنے والدین کے ساتھ یہ سلوک نہیں کرتے‘ وہاں والدین کی آخری عمر ہمیشہ تنہائی اور اولڈ پیپل ہوم میں گزرتی ہے لیکن نو مسلم عبداللہ نے یہ روایت بدل دی‘ اس نے والد اور والد کے دوستوں کو حیران کر دیا‘ یہ سلسلہ چلتا رہا یہاں تک کہ والد کینسر کی آخری سٹیج پر پہنچ کر ہسپتال داخل ہو گیا‘ عبداللہ ہسپتال میں بھی والد کی خدمت کرتا رہا اس خدمت کا یہ نتیجہ نکلا اس کا وہ والد جس نے زندگی بھر اللہ کے سامنے سر نہیں جھکایا تھا‘ اس نے انتقال سے چھ ماہ قبل اسلام قبول کر لیا‘ وہ ایمان کی حالت مین دنیا سے رخصت ہوا‘ والد کے انتقال کے بعد عبداللہ نے مختلف جابز کیں‘ وہ ان نوکریوں سے ہوتا ہوا ایف بی آئی میں پہنچ گیا۔وہ اس وقت میرے ساتھ بیٹھا تھا‘ وہ مسلمان تھا مگر اس کا حلیہ مسلمانوں جیسا نہیں تھا‘ وہ حلئے سے امریکی لگتا تھا‘ میں نے اس سے پوچھا ”آپ نے داڑھی کیوں نہیں رکھی“اس نے اس سوال پر ایک عجیب انکشاف کیا‘ اس نے بتایا”ہم نے امریکا میں تبلیغ کا ایک نیٹ ورک بنا رکھا ہے‘ ہم لوگ اپنا حلیہ نہیں بدلتے‘ ہم امریکا میں امریکی بن کر زندگی گزارتے ہیں‘ ہمغیر مسلموں کو صرف اپنے رویئے‘ خدمت اور محبت سے مسلمان بناتے ہیں“ میں نے اس سے عرض کیا”لیکن آپ یہ کام داڑھی رکھ کربھی کرسکتے ہیں“عبداللہ نے قہقہہ لگایا اور جواب دیا”ہاں لیکن ہمارا خیالہے ہم نے اگر اسلامی حلیہ اپنا لیا تو شاید امریکی لوگ ہمارے قریب نہ آئیں اور تبلیغ کیلئے دوسرے فریق کا آپ کے قریب آناضروری ہوتا ہے“ میں نے اس سے پوچھا” آپ کی یہ تکنیک کس حد تک کامیاب ہوئی“ اس نے ہنس کر جواب دیا” ہم الحمداللہ استکنیک سے سینکڑوں لوگوں کو مسلمان بنا چکے ہیں‘ یہ سب نومسلم میری طرح ہیں‘ باہر سے ایڈم اور اندر سے " عبداللہ"

waqas dar posted a topic in Ramazan ul Mubarik - رمضان المبارک[ Listen/Download Audio ] Right Click and Save Link/Target as: for download audio file Transcription of the Audio: Ramadhaan is a month of Forgiveness. Ramadhaan is a month of Rahmah. Ramadhaan is the month of generosity. Ramadhaan, the month that Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’ala accepts the Tawbah of the servants, and the month that Allaah blesses His servants. We are in need of Ramadhaan to correct ourselves, for we have forgotten Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala for the majority of the year. To correct ourselves for we have been neglectful. To correct ourselves for we are not upon the remembrance of Allaah. To correct ourselves because our hearts have gotten hard, some hearts are dead, some hearts are sick, some hearts are stone-cold, some hearts are black, getting no benefit whatsoever. Some hearts are so bad, and so ill that they see a good as a Munkar, (as an evil), and they see an evil as a good. These are not as they should be. We need a Ramadhaan. We need a Ramadhaan because our connection with Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala is not correct. We need a Ramadhaan because we do not have any Khushoo or devotion in our Salaah. We need a Ramadhaan because our Qura’an has dust and is sitting on a shelf. We need a Ramadhaan because we never read the books of Sunnah. We need a Ramadhaan because we don’t fast, and if we fast physically without food or drink, we don’t fast with our eyes by lowering them and our tongue by not slandering and our tongue by not lying and back-biting. We need a Ramadhaan to get ourselves back in order, to work for the Hereafter, to connect ourselves to Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala. We need a Ramadhaan because relationships brother to brother and sister to sister is in a miserable condition. We need a Ramadhaan because we have bad thoughts about one another. We need a Ramadhaan because of dhulm, injustice to one another. We need a Ramadhaan because there is backbiting, there is envy, there is jealousy, and there is slander. We need a Ramadhaan because we are despicable, because we are sick, because we are ill. (All these are diseases of the heart) We need a Ramadhaan because we don’t believe in the promise of Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala, or if we do, we do not implement it. We need a Ramadhaan because it is time for us to change and become something better then we are now. We need a Ramadhaan because that is the only thing that is going to get us together… We need a Ramadhaan because we don’t have unity, there’s no brotherhood We need a Ramadhaan because there’s no respect for elders We need a Ramadhaan because there’s no real love between us We need a Ramadhaan, full of love and the Mercy of Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala. A Ramadhaan like we come in, like in a clinic or a hospital, trying to solve our illnesses, trying to come out of there without the disease we came with, trying to be better than we went in with. We need a Ramadhaan. Look around you, look to your right, look to your left, look in front of you and look behind you and you’ll say, “We need a Ramadhaan”. The sisters aren’t covering properly, we need a Ramadhaan. Brothers and sisters are mixing. We need a Ramadhaan. Talking on phones and on the internet, we need a Ramadhaan. This is a mess, we are in a fix, we are in a bind, and this is a problem… We need a Ramadhaan. We need a Ramadhaan to get ourselves together. We need a Ramadhaan, that we come in the Masjid and we face the Qiblah and we say “Allaahu Akbar” and we stand in qiyaamah a long time until those diseases, that filth, that sickness, that hardness the heart goes away. We need a Ramadhaan that reminds us of the Hell-fire. We need a Ramadhaan that tells us that we haven’t been given a certificate that we are people of Jannah. We need a Ramadhaan that lets us known that we are servants of Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala. And if we were to spend our whole life, from the time we were born until Yawm al Qiyaamah in Sajdaah, it would not be enough to thank Allaah for His Mercy, His Grace and His Blessings. We need a Ramadhaan and it is clear. If there is any fear of Allaah left in the hearts of ours and if there is any hope of Jannaah left in us, and if there is any desire to change and to be better and to be righteous and to come to the level of Ihsaan, to come to the level of a Mumim, to have taqwa, to fear Allaah … we need a Ramadhaan. We need a Ramadhaan, a month of Tawbaah. We need a Ramadhaan, a month of Maghfira. We need a Ramadhaan to correct our behaviour, to correct the differences & the difficulties and the envy / jealousies in our relationship between one another. We need a Ramadhaan to understand that we have been committing injustice to one another. And as the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said : ‘Az-Zulm (injustice) – “Zulumaat yawmal Qiyaamah” –we’ll be changed physically into darkness on the Day of Judgement.’ We need a Ramadhaan to understand the Hadith : to fear the duaa of the one to whom we have done injustice. For there is not between Allaah and the person making the invocation, the person making that supplication of the person to whom injustice has been done, there is no veil between that person and Allaah. That duaa is immediately accepted. The oppressor is the one for whom things are not going right; He is tripping into this and falling into that; He is Slipping there and sliding here. Why I can’t get ahead? Why I can’t progress in my Deen? Why I can’t memorize this ayah? Why I can’t understand this hadeeth? We may be living under the invocation, the answer for invocation for someone whom we abused or stepped over. You know you need a Ramadhaan. I know I need a Ramadhaan. We know we need a Ramadhaan. We need to get ourselves together. We’ve been running around in filth, we have been having our hearts around the low matters; We need our hearts to be around the thrones of Allaah; We need to think about the high matters, high goals; We need to think about Jannah; We need a hope for al-Jannah. You’re planning for marriage, you’re planning for education, you’re planning for a job, but we need to plan for the Jannah. We need to prepare for the Jannah during the month of Ramadhaan. “‘Nahnu be haajathin Ma’aasa fir Ramadhaan.” We are in severe need for Ramadhaan, so that we come into Ramdhaan with repentance, we come into it with regret, we come into it realizing that we are weak, that we need Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala to correct us, realizing that we are wrong and that we need Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala to place upon us that which is right, realizing that we are weak and that we need Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala to grant us strength. We need a Ramadhaan. Oh Yes !! We need a Ramadhaan. We needs nights of Qiyaam, we need dua and sujood, we need nights of Ramadhaan to do thilawaah of Qura’an. We need to listen to Husri, or Sudays or Shurain, or Hudhaifi. We need a Ramadhaan to listen to the Qura’an. When was the last time that we listened to the Qura’an?? When was the last time we recited Qura’an? We need a Ramadhaan to study Qura’an, to implement the Qura’an, and this Ramadhaan may be our final Ramadhaan. As one brother spoke, I believe it is Abu Thasleem Hafidahullaah, where is the guarantee that this is not our final Ramadhaan? What is the guarantee that it is not our final Ramadhaan? We have to come into it seriously. And we want to come out of it much better than we came into it. We want to come out of Ramadhaan with Taqwa, because that was the main reason that it was legislated. “O you who believe fasting has been written upon you as it was written for those before you, so that you may gain Taqwa.” Taqwa is fear of Allaah. If we had taqwa, our condition will be better than it is now. If we had taqwa our relationships would be smoother, if we had taqwa …father to son who is a Muslim, sister to brother who is Muslim, uncle, aunt, niece and nephew who is Muslim, husband and wife who are Muslims.. the relationships would be better if they are based upon Taqwa. And we can achieve Taqwa during the month of Ramadhaan. I don’t believe that our hearts are that hard, I don’t believe that we can’t change, I don’t believe that some of us who hold hatred for the last 10 years cannot learn to love, and because we have been taught deceit and deception now we can’t learn to trust. I don’t believe that those brothers who have left circumstances physically but have the teachings and the behaviours that they had while they were up there, that they can’t change. The sisters who remove their bodies from the fitnah and physically remove their bodies from a mistake, physically remove their bodies from foolishness but their hearts have to follow. Be iznillaahi tha’aalah ! Their hearts have to follow. We need a Ramadhaan to be as the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was. That he was the most generous, he was generous in general and he was most generous in Ramadhaan. Like a wind … spending, giving to his right, giving to his left, giving in front of him, giving behind him, giving to anyone who came. He gave without them asking. We need a Ramadhaan to inculcate these qualities. We need to control our desires. We need to control our tongue. We need to control our limbs. We need to learn self-discipline. We need to control our anger. We must do things in Ramadhaan not out of habit, something that is just tradition., that we are more despicable when we went in. We have to change our condition. We have to change our connection with Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala. For how light is the view of Allaah when they disobey Him. This is what was said by one of the sahabas when he had the crown of the Persian King in his hand. And the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘that he had been sent before the hour. And my provision has been provided for me under the shade of my spear and humiliation has been written against anyone who goes against my orders. Humiliation has been written upon anyone who goes against my orders. If we want to continue in the position of humiliation that we are in, then do not take the grand opportunity act like it doesn’t exist, neglect and forget and be hard headed, be obstinate, follow your desires like you have been doing for the last 11 months and don’t benefit from Ramadhaan. And when our circumstances doesn’t change, when the Kuffar don’t remove their spears from our necks, when our women are consistently raped and they are now these days in many parts of the world, when all of that happens, don’t say “Why?” You know why. For we need a Ramadhaan and we have to correct ourselves in this Ramadhaan. And that you are a part of this Ummah and if you have an illness, and if you are a member of this ummah with a sickness, with filth, with crime, this affects the rest of the Ummah. It is like your body when you have an illness. It is like when you have hurt your finger or your toe, it affects the rest of the body. And it doesn’t have to be said to you that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “the believers are like one body”. If we want to correct the position of the Ummah, then we must first start by correcting ourselves. Don’t worry about Ubyaid, Hassan and Musa, but worry about yourself. Be selfish this Ramadhaan. Not regarding giving sadaqa but where you are going to focus your rectification or how to rectify yourself. Your focus is going to be on yourself. Not worrying about this person and that person’s manhaj. Are you on the correct Manhaj?? Not worrying about whether a particular brother is on the bidah or the Sunnah. Are you upon the Sunnah? Have those brothers stopped committing their sins — have you stopped committing that sin? Has the brother made tawbah —- Have you made tawbah?? Has the brother corrected a situation —– have you corrected your situation? Worry about yourself. Worry about yourself this Ramadhaan. Any other Ramadhaan do what you will. But my sincere advice to you is, this Ramadhaan worry about yourself. Am I backbiting? Am I slandering? Am I committing fahishah? Am I committing gheebah? Am I committing Nameemah (tale-carrying)? Do I have ‘hasad’? Do I have pride (Kibr) ? Am I arrogant? Am I too harsh? Am I unkind? Am I not gentle enough? Am I gentle enough? Question yourself. Was my intention when I said what I said or did what I did for the pleasure of Allaah or to be noticed? When I spoke what I spoke was it for the pleasure of Allaah or to be seen or heard? Was I doing it “Haarisa min Qalbi’— sincerely from my heart or I did it to be known? ‘Khutbath Duroor’ — Loving to be known breaks it. Be Mukhlis. Be sincere. Be like that servant of Allaah like the Hadith that has been related in the Kitaab al tawheed of the soldier whose head is disheveled, who is bare-footed and dirty.. but he is sincere to Allaah. If he was placed at the rear of the army, he is pleased with that. And if he is placed in the front of the army he is displeased with that. His goal is Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala. Not where I sit. Not us and them, Not you and I but his brothers and sisters ..its the servants of Allaah, it is the believers, it is the Muslim, the salafiyoon, it is Ahlul –athar, it is Ahlus-Sunnah, it is Ahlul-Hadith. No one’ bigger and no one is smaller . No one wants to step on anyone nor desire that. All of us should be working for the pleasure of Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala. And if we don’t we have an illness which is Riyaah — doing things to be seen or Sum’aah — doing things to be heard and we need a Ramadhaan to correct that behaviour. If we find that we talk to the sisters or brothers too much, we need a Ramadhaan to learn to stop talking to those who are not halaal for us to talk to. And if we find that we are mixing too much, we need a Ramadhaan to start mixing with those whom you are not supposed to mix with. We find that we have jealousy in our hearts, vengeance in our hearts, distrust in our hearts for other Muslims based upon nothing but Shaitaan whispers to us, we need a Ramadhaan. We get all the good in front of us when we have the Book of Allaah tabarak wa ta’ala and the Sunnaah of the Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and the fahmas Salafus Saalih and the connection to the inheritors of the Prophet alaihissalaam – the Ulamaa – we got all the good in front of us but we are like that individual who has a disease and he has the prescription for the medicine in front of him but he refuses to open the package – let alone read it —– let alone take it. We need a Ramadhaan, Our condition won’t change. We’ll continue to complain. We need a Ramadhaan or we’ll forever be in pain. We need a Ramadhaan or we’ll go insane. We need a Ramadhaan, you and I. Why can’t we lift up, roll up our sleeves? Why do we have to beat the hands of one another? Why do we have to step on somebody to get somewhere? Why do we have to step on our brother – he wants to go to the same place where you want to go? The Jannah. Why can’t we do it together? Why can’t we be side by side? You roll up your sleeves and I’ll roll up my sleeves, we’ll get busy and we’ll get help and support one another. Why can’t we make excuses? Why can’t we forgive? Why can’t we forget? Why can’t we let things go? Upon clarity, upon Haqq, knowing the Sunnah, knowing the Deen, connected to the scholars, not preceding them in any statement or action and if they make a statement, we make their statement (not add our own), This is important. We need a Ramadhaan. This blessed month where you can go in as the most despicable devil and come out like an angel. That blessed month when you can go in as a miser and come out as the generous … that blessed month where you can be one of those hard-hearted brothers – (everybody usually gives you a smile but you don’t give anybody a smile) – and if you do it right, you’ll come out of Ramadhaan giving smiles to those brothers , not in the faces of the sisters but the faces of your brothers.. We need a Ramadhaan to correct our condition : we are slow, we are lazy, we don’t have any incentive towards the deen and the Aakhiraah, the Hereafter . Our incentives are towards the Dunya and if the opposite of this was true most of the neighbourhood around here would be Muslims. Many would enter Islaam in folds, as Sheikh Ubaid Madkhali Hafidaallaah says in his explanation of ‘Usool as thalaathah’, that Islaam is a Mahaasin – the beauty of it is explained. Islaam he said is a Mu’jizaa minal Mu’jizaath’ — Islaam is a miracle of the Mircales. Ayah minal Ayaahs. It is that, when it is presented to the hearts, when it is presented to the people, and it is done in the right way, what happens? They enter Islaam ‘Afwaajan’ – in the multitudes. He said that if one of them has a business and we want to advertise, very few who wouldn’t advertise at all would say that “I have a business but I am going to be silent.” Business won’t be successful and no one will benefit, he will loose. Generally a good business person gets a good advertisement – he may use the print media, he may use the radio, the audio media, to get his advertisement — his dawa’ah , he’ll call out so that people will come and he mixes in the most beautiful way and has the most beautiful response. This is what he does. The Sheikh said, ‘if we were to do that with Islaam, show its beauty, explain its Mahasin –its beauty, it is the natural fitrah of the person (unless his fitrah has been polluted) that he wants to know Islaam. He wants to know why he walks upon the earth. He wants to know his prayer. He wants to have his connection with his Creator. He wants to know the purpose of his existence. But who will explain it to him or her? Who will tell them? Who will open up those hearts? It is supposed to be ‘us’. Those of us who cannot express ourselves, what about our actions? If the person sees you are truthful , why you are truthful? Because Islaam teaches you truthfulness and you must be truthful and there is high martaba being truthful and minas-Siddeeqi is the only martaba — level after the Prophets… It is the first level after the Prophets, rather. Closest to the prophet’s stations are those who are Siddiqeen, the most truthful. So you be truthful because of that. You keep your word because of that. You are gentle, you are nice, you have good behaviour, you have good etiquette, you have good deportment, so when it comes to Islaam it is Afwaajan. So if you don’t see them doing it, we are doing what we are not supposed to be doing. If we were doing what we are supposed to be doing, we would probably have to have this type of fundraising at one of the football stadiums. If we are doing what we are supposed to be doing, people will be hearing Islaam from the radio, they will see articles written in the papers regularly, they would see good behaviour, they would see kindness and gentleness, patience and forbearance. They would see the qualities and characteristics of Mustapha sallallahu alaihi wassallam. i.e if we were doing our job. But we are not. Not the male or the female. Not father or mother or child. We are not upon what we should be upon, we are not doing what we are supposed to be doing. We need a Ramadhaan to clarify our situation. We need a Ramadhaan to put us in position. We need a Ramadhaan to give this Ummah a rebirth, air .. we have to understand that we are global. Whoever follows the Book of Allaah, the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and the Manhaj of the Salafus Saalih, then they are our closest brothers. And those who are upon ignorance, innovation, not mukaffarah, they are still brothers from a distant but from within this Ummah. So it affects all of us. And we are connected in that way. If you sit there saying, ‘I don’t care what they do to the Muslims in India doesn’t concern me; I don’t care if they bomb Afghanistan up the planet… I don’t care…. it has nothing to do with me …then you are a racist, a nationalist, you are not a Salafi. Because a Salafi concerns himself about this Ummah. Salafi at night thinks about this Ummah. Salafi cries in his salaah about the condition of this Ummah, he cries about all locally, he cries about their condition internationally. We need a Ramadhaan so that we can realize the Islaamic brotherhood again. We need a Ramadhaan because some of them never practiced brotherhood ever in their lives and may have been Muslims 50 years. We need a Ramadhaan so that the sisters learn sisterhood, We need a Ramadhaan so that we can focus on the Aakhirah — Hereafter and we give Naseehah and advice to one another that is of benefit and that our talking and our mixing is just not about the Dunya, and what you want to do in the Dunya and how you are gonna be in this Dunya. We need a Ramadhaan so that people learn to inculcate in their children to be like Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq, Umar al-Khattab, Sa’ad abi Ibn Waqqas and like this. We need a Ramadhaan so that they can study knowledge. This Ummah needs another Bin Baaz, this Ummah needs another Al-Albani, this Ummah needs another Muqbil, this Ummah needs another Ibn Taimiyyah, this Ummah needs all of these and more. You are gonna tell me that none of them can come or no one like them can from our families? None of them can come from us? Not everyone who comes from us have to be Goofi. Can’t our children speak the Arabic language at a young age? Can’t we put in the hands of our children books that will benefit the Ummah.. the same love the Kaafir have for Harry Potter and their imaginary books? Our hope is low. Our desire is low. We are supposed to be having high goals. We should be looking at our kids Abdullaah and Abdurrahman and saying : You might be Sheikh Naasir for this Ummah. We should be saying when listening to Sudaisi and Shuraim that it could be you leading the salaah in haram. We are supposed to be having high goals. But until we brush off the dust, the foolishness of the jaahiliyyah , the hastiness of the youth, the bad characteristics that we have, we have to get rid of them , we have to change our condition, we need aRamadhaan. We need our Qiyaam at night, we need recitation of Qura’an, we need to sit together and talk together only about the deen, not about the Dunya, we need to worry about our status in the Aakhirah, in the Hereafter. We need to wake up from our sleep. Wake up Oh Sleepy one. !! our slumber has been too long. You got to wake up, take wudoo, get within the caravan of Mohamed Ibn Abdullah, Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq, Umar al-Khattab, Ibn Taimiyyah – you have to get with it. How long are we going to stay sick? How long are we going to be unsettled? How long are we going to have our problems? We need a Ramadhaan. And let this Ramadhaan be the one where you come out of it better, come out of it committed, come out of it devoted, you come out of it with your head held high. You are from the Ummah of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and don’t you forget it!! Walhamdulillaahi rabbil aalameen.
