1. Consoling one who has been dismissed from employment
Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat, Allamah Maulana Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qaadiri Razavi دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ consoled an Islamic brother through a letter who had been dismissed from his employment:
Mujh Sa Koi Gham Zadah Na Hoga
Tum Sa Nahin Gham-Gusar Aqa
There will be no one grieved like me
There is no consoler like you, o Master
‘Patience is practised upon the initial distress, as patience comes about after that anyway.’ May Allah Almighty have mercy upon you. This is your test, do not let go of patience’. On such occasions, ‘opening one's mouth’ is tantamount to opening the doors of destruction and avoiding sins is almost impossible. (If your employment term expired and a new contract was not offered, then there is no blame on anyone anyway).
Hay Sabr to Khazanah-e-Firdaus Bhaiyo!
Aashiq kay lab pay Shikwah Kabhi Bhi Na Aa sakay
Patience is the treasure of Paradise, o brothers
Complain can’t come forth on the tongue of a devotee
Continue praying for my forgiveness without accountability.
Remain busy in the Madani works of Dawat-e-Islami.
The fear of the Hereafter requires that you take heed on the point of dismissal from your employment, by contemplating your departure from the world.
Ah! Bay-Baakiyan Kahin Qiyamat Mayn Phansa Ker Na Rakh Dayn
Guzar Jayen Gay Hanstay Khayltay Saaray Marahil Say
Laga Dayn Gay Woh Paar Apna Safeenah Aa kay Sahil Say
صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب! صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد
