Excellence of a child’s death, ‘Asharah-e-Maghfirat greetings, Encouraging the one having deep yearning for Madani activities

Excellence of a child’s death

نَحْمَدُہٗ  وَنُصَلِّیْ  وَ نُسَلِّمُ  عَلٰی رَسُوْ لِہِ النَّبِیِّ  الْکَرِیْم

From: Sag-e-Madinah, Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qaadiri Razavi عُفِیَ عَنهُ

To: Dear Madani son, Dilshad Arain

اَلسَّلَامُ   عَلَیْکُمْ   وَ رَحْمَۃُ  اللّٰہِ  وَ بَرَکَاتُہٗ

Brother Asif gave this sad news that your Madani baby son passed away in the second night of Ramadan-ul-Mubarak, 1439 Hijri, after living in this world for just a single day,‘اِنَّا لِلّٰهِ وَ اِنَّاۤ اِلَیْهِ رٰجِعُوْنَؕ’. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bless you, my Madani daughter [child’s mother], and the maternal and paternal family members of the child with patience and also great reward for patience. Please have patience and courage; Divine mercy is very great. اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, this Madani son of yours will not be wasted; he will become a very great treasure for you for the Day of Judgement. There are different narrations regarding the children who depart this life, that they take their parents to Jannah by interceding for them, become a barrier to Jahannam, etc. I am mentioning 3 Madani pearls from ‘Sharh-us-Sudoor’ (translated book), published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah:

1     The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللہ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: Every child who is born in a Muslim family eats and drinks his fill in Jannah and humbly requests Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, ‘O my Rab! Please send my parents to me.’

2     Sayyiduna Khalid Bin Ma’daan رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has stated: There is a tree in Jannah, namely Tuba [طوبٰی] which is completely like an udder filled with milk. Every infant who dies, drinks milk from this tree and Sayyiduna Ibraheem Khaleelullah عَـلٰى نَبِـيِّـنَا وَ عَـلَيْـهِ الـصَّلٰوةُ وَالـسَّلَام looks after those children.

3     Sayyiduna ‘Ubayd Bin ‘Umayr رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has stated: There is a tree in Jannah and it also has many udders like the cow udders filled with milk from which the children of the Jannah-dwellers get their food. (Sharh-us-Sudoor – translated, pp. 399)

 

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on all of you. It is the month of Ramadan-ul-Mubarak. Worship abundantly, observe Siyam [fasts], offer Salahs, offer Taraweeh, and if Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ gives you Taufeeq, have the privilege of performing I’tikaf in Aalami Madani Markaz, Faizan-e-Madinah. Remember! Isal-e-Sawab is valid even for a one-day-old child. Make the intention of Isal-e-Sawab as well; you will get Sawab and the Madani child will also get Sawab, اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ. Have courage and come. Please say Salam to all the people at your home.

 

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

‘Asharah-e-Maghfirat greetings

Shaykh ‘Ali Taariq Al-Hanafi Al-Qaadiri مُـدَّظِلُّـهُ الْـعَالِی, the Mutawalli [keeper], Imam and Khateeb of the blessed shrine of Sayyiduna Shaykh Junayd Baghdadi رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (Baghdad) designed a card in written form and sent to Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـه greetings for the beginning of the second ‘Asharah (i.e. ‘Asharah-e-Maghfirat) of Ramadan-ul-Mubarak. At these greetings, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـه made Du’as for Shaykh ‘Ali Taariq Al-Hanafi Al-Qaadiri مُـدَّظِلُّـهُ الْـعَالِی and stated:

نَحْمَدُہٗ  وَنُصَلِّیْ  وَ نُسَلِّمُ  عَلٰی رَسُوْ لِہِ النَّبِیِّ  الْکَرِیْم

To: Honourable Shaykh ‘Ali Taariq Hanafi Qaadiri

اَلسَّلَامُ   عَلَیْکُمْ   وَ رَحْمَۃُ  اللّٰہِ  وَ بَرَکَاتُہٗ

I received the beautiful written message of Ramadan’s second-‘Asharah greetings (1439 Hijri) from you. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ greatly shower the Ramadan’s blessings on you and me and may this Ramadan-ul-Mubarak (1439 Hijri) become the source of our definite Maghfirat [forgiveness].

اٰمِيۡن   بِجَاهِ   النَّبِيِّ  الۡاَمِيۡن   صَلَّى  اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى  عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم

 

I have been informed that you have met with an accident and received serious injuries, and you are also intending to visit India for medical treatment. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bless you with fast, perfect and beneficial recovery in your own country and I make Du’a to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ that the damage your body has suffered soon gets better. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bless you with a long life full of health, comfort, safety and religious services. Please have patience and courage.

لَا  بَاْسَ طَھُوْرٌ   اِنْ شَآ ءَ اللہ!  لَا   بَاْسَ  طَھُوْرٌ  اِنْ شَآ ءَ اللہ!   لَا  بَاْسَ  طَھُوْرٌ   اِنْ  شَآ ءَ  اللہ!

 

Please present my Salam humbly at the blessed shrine of Sayyidi Shaykh Junayd Baghdadi رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه and please make Du’a over there for my forgiveness without accountability. Please have patience and courage; اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, everything will get right. Whatever Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ does is best; اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, it will [definitely] be better for you. Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has saved your life; it is also His favour and blessing, اَلْحَمْدُلـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ. The difficulties one faces become the cause of sins getting erased and ranks getting raised.

 

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Encouraging the one having deep yearning for Madani activities

Ibraheem Attari, a student of Jami’a-tul-Madinah Sadiqabad, studying in 5th year, got severely injured in an accident on 23rd Ramadan-ul-Mubarak 1439 Hijri. Having faced the life-or-death situation one night, he passed away in the morning on 24th Ramadan-ul-Mubarak (1439 AH). When Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ heard this sad news during Madani Muzakarah, he made Du’a of forgiveness live on Madani Channel for the deceased and also expressed his condolences to the family and relatives of the deceased. Upon this, Yaasir Arafat Attari Madani (Mudarris Jami’a-tul-Madinah), the elder brother of the deceased has expressed his intentions and feelings in this way via voice message:

بِسْمِ  اللّٰہِ  الرَّ حْمٰنِ الرَّ حِیْم

اَلصَّلٰوۃُ   وَالسَّلَامُ   عَلَیْکَ   یَا رَسُوْ لَ   اللہ

Rukn-e-Shura, friends and other Islamic brothers joined Janazah (funeral Salah) of Ibraheem Attari, the student of 5th year [of Jami’a-tul-Madinah]. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ grant them great reward. My Murshid-e-Kareem (spiritual guide) has also blessed us with Du’as. It is surely a great privilege. This is the best time to make a [good] intention. اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ! I will travel with Madani Qafilah from Chand Raat (the night before Eid) and will also make my brothers travel with Madani Qafilahs and will not engage myself in idle talks etc., (unnecessarily) in the name of condolence as it has become a custom of our society. I will root out this practice, اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ. I will take everyone to Masjid and will arrange a religious gathering of Zikr and Azkaar. I will devote my full time for the Tarbiyyat of the Mu’takifeen of the Masjid of my village Faizan-e-Madinah Gulzar-e-Habib. اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, I will spend my full time with Mu’takifeen until I am staying in my village. Apart from this, whatever good intentions I could make and whatever I could do for Dawat-e-Islami, I would carry out. Let my life, honour, dignity, children and everything be sacrificed for Dawat-e-Islami, اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ. I must perform what I have mentioned, اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ.

اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ! I will travel with Madani Qafilahs of Dawat-e-Islami from time to time. I have come from Bab-ul-Madinah with this intention that I will deliver Bayan from village to village and will take 126 Islamic brothers to Babul Madinah with me at my own cost after making up their mindset.

اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ! Being a Mudarris (Madrasah teacher), I plead (with you), give your children Islamic education. I surely had made an intention to take 126 Islamic brothers with me; I have this intention today and will have the same intention in future; and اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ; I will bring them also. In case the number of Islamic brothers exceeds and more people are ready to travel with me then اِنْ شَآءَاللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ!, I will pay the fare of all of them from my own pocket, and even I will bear their expenses until they seek admission in Jami’a-tul-Madinah and I will try to bring more and more Islamic brothers to Jami’a-tul-Madinah. I just want that the Murshid Kareem (spiritual guide) remember our family and all of us in his Du’as. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ elevate the ranks of my Murshid Kareem (spiritual guide) and may Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ grant him a long life.

اٰمِيۡن   بِجَاهِ   النَّبِيِّ  الۡاَمِيۡن   صَلَّى  اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى  عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم

 

Impressed with the intentions and feelings of Yaasir Arafat Attari Madani, Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـه sent back his voice reply in this way:

نَحْمَدُہٗ  وَنُصَلِّیْ  وَ نُسَلِّمُ  عَلٰی رَسُوْ لِہِ النَّبِیِّ  الْکَرِیْم

To: My dear Madani son Yaasir Arafat Madani

From: Sag-e-Madinah, Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qaadiri Razavi عُفِیَ عَنهُ:

اَلسَّلَامُ   عَلَیْکُمْ   وَ رَحْمَۃُ  اللّٰہِ  وَ بَرَکَاتُہٗ

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bless your younger brother late Ibraheem Attari with mercy and grace and forgive him without accountability! Aameen

When I listened to your voice message, I felt eagerness to respond you. مَـاشَــآءَالـلّٰـه! Your intentions and deep yearning are highly appreciable! I am greatly impressed with your profound keenness! May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bless you with Istiqamah (steadfastness). Your remarkable way is worth-following for other blessed teachers and Mudarriseen. مَـاشَــآءَالـلّٰـه! May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ grant you the goodness of both worlds, and keep your entire family happy and prosperous always. Aameen

Be actively engaged in Madani activities, keep rendering your contribution towards ‘Ilm-e-Deen (Islamic knowledge), keep bringing Islamic brothers to Jami’a-tul-Madinah, keep travelling with Madani Qafilah and keep making up the mindset of others for the Madani activities and Madani Qafilahs.

مَـاشَــآءَالـلّٰـه! May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ keep you happy. I request you to make Du’a for my forgiveness without accountability! Say my Salam to your students and all family members.
