Advice for the Seeker of Allah Ta’ala’s Love

By September 8, 2014 No Comments

In the book, Qasdus Sabeel ilal Maulal Jaleel, Hakeemul Ummah Moulana Thaanwi (Rahimahullah) mentions,

“It is imperative to refrain from all unnecessary acts which interfere with one’s peace of mind. However, adverse circumstances beyond one’s control should be taken in stride and patiently borne. Similarly, if one courts the wrath of anyone in the course of a Shar’i demand, the resultant conflict will not be spiritually harmful and should be borne with patience, e.g. the gift of a devourer of riba is not accepted and in consequence, he (the devourer of riba) becomes one’s enemy. His anger is of no consequence and one should not be bothered. Repose trust in Allah. He will aid. Even if some hardship and difficulty come your way in having upheld the Shar’i commands, consider it to be the effect of Allah’s wisdom. Be satisfied and resign yourself to Allah. This attitude engenders closer proximity to Allah Ta’ala.”
