THURSDAY NIGHT MAJLIS

The Bounty of Water

Majlis of Mufti Ebrahim Desai | 05/11/2015

Mufti Saheb highlighted the water crisis issue. we are experiencing El - Nino weather condition and the worst drought in 23 years. Thousands of communities are facing water shortages.

 

Allah refers to water as a bounty in many places in the Qur’an. Water is the inception of life for every living object. Shariah has emphasised on preserving water.

 

While there may be scientific explanations for the El - Nino weather condition, as Muslims we should reflect on why Allah is withholding the rain.

 

Mufti Saheb advised we should make abundant Taubah and Istighfar and correct ourselves especially  in our financial dealings.

 

Protect yourself from the mischief of the Jinn

Majlis of Mufti Ebrahim Desai | 29/10/2015

In the recent past, the Darul Iftaa has been inundated with calls from the public regarding Sihr (black magic), Jinns, and reliable Aamils. Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Desai Saheb discussed the issues in this weeks Majlis.

 

The creation of Jinns is a reality. Allah refers to Jinns in many places in the Qur’an. Jinns are also created with four components as Human beings - Sand, water, fire, and air. However, the element of fire is dominant in them.

 

Mufti Saheb referred to the background of the revelation od Surah Jinn and related the incident of Sahl ibn Abdullah (Radhi Allah Anhu)’s meeting with a Jinn. Mufti Saheb also explained that contrary to general perception, Jinns are more afraid of us because we have Imaan and are able to do things to suppress their mischief.

 

Mufti Saheb then advised that Jinns by nature are mischievous and we should guard ourselves from their mischief. All these points are mentioned in the talk.

 

Furthermore, Mufti Saheb explained the signs of a reliable Aamil, he should be an adherent to the Shariah and not violate the laws of Hijab. Some ‘Aamils’ practice magic by removing flesh from people. Beware of such ‘Aamils’ and guard yourself against their deception.

Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Desai Saheb Silsilah Ask Islaahi Question

The month of Muharram & The lunar Calendar

Majlis of Mufti Ebrahim Desai | 15/10/2015

Mufti Saheb presented two verses from Surah Tawba in which Allah speaks about the four sacred months. Muharram is one of those months. In the second verse Allah refers to the incorrect practise of the people of Jahiliyyah of changing the order and sequence of the sacred months to suit their desires.

 

On this, Mufti Saheb presented two advises. Many laws of Shariah are based on the Lunar calendar - Ramadhaan, Hajj, Zakaat etc. We should take note of the dates of the lunar calendar. Secondly, Don't make Halaal into Haraam and vice versa. Mufti Saheb cautioned that this is a serious crime and a person could risk losing his Imaan. If one is guilty of doing wrong, accept it and make Taubah. If the person insists on doing wrong, he will not get Taufeeq to do Tawbah.

Mindset of the Sahabah

Majlis of Mufti Ebrahim Desai | 27/08/2015

In the recent past there has been many sudden deaths. Mufti Saheb stated that it appears that people are immune to Janaza messages. In the past, a Janaza message would jolt people and remind them of death. The Sahaba (Radhi Allahu Anhum) and our pious elders were always conscious of death.

 

Mufti Saheb presented examples of consciousness of death from the lives of Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali (Radhi Allahu Anhum). The thought of death is an effective way of reforming one's life.

Sunnah Way of Dealing with Challenges in Life

Every one of us face challenges in life. If it is not financial related, it is health related. If it is not marriage related, it is children related. Mufti Saheb said his mother (Rahmatullah alyaha) used to say when children are small, the problem is small. When they are big, the problems are big.The question people ask is what is the Sunnah way of dealing with challenges? Mufti Saheb presented the incident of Hijrah when the life of Rasulullah (Sallalahu alayhi wasallam) was threatened, Rasulullah (Sallalahu alayhi wasallam) approached the issue two folds:

 

 

1.      He adopted al possible asbab (means) for his and Abu Bakr (Radhi Allau anhu)’s safety. Camels were arranged, travel requirements, food, an informer and a guide were arranged.

 

 

2.      The second and most important approach was the remembrance of Allah during this most challenging time. Abu Bakr (Radhi Allau anhu) told to Rasulullah (Sallalahu alayhi wasallam) if the disbelievers have to look down, they will see us in the cave. Rasulullah (Sallalahu alayhi wasallam) replied ‘what do you think of those two, the third of whom is Allah’.

 

 

Mufti Saheb explained how the Zikr of Allah brings positive effects in all the means one adopts.

Mufti Saheb presented some very inspiring incidents of Rasulullah (sallahu alayhi wasallam) making Dua for the Sahabah and the effect of the Duas.

 

1.      Anas (Radhi Allahu anhu) became the wealthiest Ansaari and outlived may of his children and grandchildren due to the Barakah of the Dua of Rasulullah (sallahu alayhi wasallam).

 

2.      Umm Haraam bint Milhaan (Radhi Allahu anha) attainted martyrdom due to the Dua of Rasulullah (sallahu alayhi wasallam).

 

3.      Urwa al Bariki (Radhi Allahu anhu) would change dust to gold (Barakah) due to the Dua of Rasulullah (sallahu alayhi wasallam). He had 70 horses in his house.

 

4.      Abdullah ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu anhu) was the greatest Aalim of this Ummah due to the Dua of Rasulullah (sallahu alayhi wasallam).

 

5.      Jaabir (Radhi Allahu anhu) witnessed Barakah in the paying out of his father’s debt.

 

6.      Hishaam ibn Abdullah (Radhi Allahu anhu) used to gain a camel load of profit in his investments.

 

 

Mufti Saheb stated when seeking Dua from people, make them happy so that the Dua comes from the heart. Mufti Saheb further stated the most effective Duas are the Duas of the parents. They are more valuable than the Duas of pious people. Value your parents, make them happy and take their Duas.
