REKINDLE YOUR LOVE FOR RASULULLAH (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM)

With the onset of Rabiul Awwal the hearts of the Believers are truly revitalised. Brimming with love and appreciation for our Beloved Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasalam) - connections are rekindled and deep reflections begin to take place.

Our honourable Mufti Ebrahim Desai (Rahimahullah) would express great zeal and eagerness in propagating the beautiful message of our Beloved Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasalam) and was always so passionate about instilling the true love of Rasulullah( salallahu alaihi wasalam) in the hearts of the Believers. We will be sharing the recordings of the summarized discourses on the Qaseedah Burdah conducted by Mufti Sahib (Rahimahullah) throughout the month of Rabiul Awwal. We hope that these reminders will ignite within our hearts the true love of Rasulullah (Salallahu alaihi wasalam). We ask Allah to strengthen our Imaan through the barakah of these discourses and we make Dua it will be a means of Sadaqah Jariyah for our honourable Mufti Ebrahim Desai (Rahimahullah).


DISCOURSE #1 | A SUMMARIZED VERSION OF THE QASEEDAH BURDAH

BY MUFTI EBRAHIM DESAI (RAHIMAHULLAH)



The discourse began with a beautiful recitation of some couplets from the Qaseedah Burdah by the Mu'adhin of Musjid Us Saliheen, Sheikh Yahya. The people really enjoy Sheikh Yahya’s rendition of the Qaseedah Burdah. Mufti Saheb began his discourse by mentioning the background of the composer of the Qaseedah Burdah, Allamah Busairi Rahmatullah Alayh.

Allamah Busairi Rahmatullah Alayh hailed from Egypt. He was employed by the government. He associated with high profile people and had all the comforts and luxuries of Life. However, he did not have peace (Sukoon).

On this, Mufti Saheb explained the difference between the means of peace and peace itself. He stated when one turns to Allalh, Allah will grant one peace. The various means of peace may not necessarily give one peace. Imam Busayri Rahmatullah Alayh identified a spiritual guide. This was a turning point. He then treaded the path of Tazkiyah.

Allamah Busairi always wished to have the Ziyaarat of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in his dream and wrote numerous poems in praises of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. When he was old and afflicted with a stroke, Allamah Busairi Rahmatullah Alayh was blessed with the Ziyarah of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in which he presented some couplets in the praises of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam was extremely pleased with this poetry and presented Allamah Busairi with a shawl. Hence, the name of the poem, poems of the Shawl.

The love of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is integral in the life of a believer. A person’s Imaan is not complete until the love of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is more than the love of anyone else in your life. Mufti Saheb mentioned some incidents showing the love the Sahabah had for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and their acts of love which demonstrated their extreme love for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Love has the potential to create a revolution in the life of a person. A person observes the beloved and wishes to emulate every action of the beloved. Mufti Saheb mentioned the story of Majnoon and Layla and the impact love can have in one's life. Mufti Saheb explained the introduction of the poems. There are two role players. One is an Ashiq (Lover) of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and the other is an observer of the Ashiq. The observer observes the reaction of the Ashiq-e-Rasool. Whenever there is a slight reference to Madinah Shareef, or the neighbourhood of Madinah Shareef, or even the mountains of Madinah Shareef, the Ashiq-e-Rasool gets emotional and his ‘eyes bleed tears’. That is an expression of a heart bleeding with love.

Mufti Saheb then presented amazing incidents of the Sahabah’s love for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.

It's a rhetorical question, making the point that it should not be singled out only in one month/weekend.

Like why do people single out one day of the year for mothers day?

If its not a rhetorical question, then It's a way off celebrating the life of our Prophet (saw) in the month he was born in. Otherwise, on a daily basis we try to celebrate his life in private by following his footsteps and in public by sharing his teachings. Just like how mothers day should be everyday.

SUMMARISED VERSION OF THE QASEEDAH BURDAH | PART #2

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai (Rahimahullah)


The Ishq (Extreme Love for Rasulullah ﷺ)

The first Chapter consists of 24 poems. There are two role players in these poems.

1) The Aashiq – Lover.
2) The observer of the lover.

In the first 14 poems, the observer is amazed at the extra ordinary love of the Aashiq. He is soaked in the love of his beloved. He only wants to see the face of his beloved, he only wishes to hear the beloved and he only wishes to hear the beloved talk. The observer observes that when there is any mention of Madinah Shareef or the areas around Madinah Shareef, the lover becomes emotional. His eyes flow with tears mixed with blood. Actually, his heart bleeds with love. The observer has an idea that the lover is in love with an extraordinary person, Rasulullah ﷺ. The lover becomes emotional when he feels a breeze. He attributes the breeze to the breeze of Madinah Shareef.

A lover looks for any excuse to be linked with the beloved. The link of a link is a link. The observer then addresses the Aashiq-e-Rasool “How can you conceal your love? Your flowing tears and aching heart is clear testament of your love. Your pale face with two red lines of blood is ample proof of your love. Tell us of your love.”

The Aashiq-e-Rasool then breaks his silence and tells how the mere thought of Rasulullah ﷺ has broken his sleep and kept him awake. The Aashiq-e-Rasool says if anyone advises him against this love, he will simply not listen. Even his grey hair is advising him to take it easy in this love. He responds that he’d rather get old and sick due to extreme love of Rasulullah ﷺ and die with such love.

Mufti Saheb then mentioned few examples of Ishq of the Sahabah had for Rasulullah ﷺ. How a Sahabi was prepared to give his life for Rasulullah ﷺ. How a Sahabi never parted with what Rasulullah ﷺ gave him. How a tree cried upon parting from Rasulullah ﷺ.

Finally, Mufti Saheb advised that real lovers convert emotion into actions and adherence to the Sunnah of Nabi ﷺ. A real follower imitates his beloved.

SUMMARISED VERSION OF THE QASEEDAH BURDAH | PART 3

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai (Rahimahullah)


The Nafs: A Silent Enemy From Within Ourselves

Allamah Busâyri Rahimahullah commences this Chapter by painting a picture of an old and feeble man who has wrinkles on his face, his eyes sunken, he cannot hear and talk properly and he has no energy in his body. He is aware now that his lifespan is short and will die any time. However, he is struggling to fight his Nafs.

He states his Nafs is like a wild, rebellious horse. He searches desperately for a spiritual guide to control his Nafs before he leaves this World.

When he submits to a spiritual guide and confides in him, he gives him just one advice. Never feed your Nafs with sins. The spiritual guide then presents three characteristics of the Nafs.

1) The Nafs is like a breastfeeding child.

2) The Nafs is a fraudster.

3) The Nafs is like a grazing animal



Mufti Saheb (Rahimahullah) then elaborated on the different types of Nafs:

1) Nafs e Ammârah

2) Nafs e Lawwâmah

3) Nafs e Mutma’innah

He advised just as we have different stages in life, childhood, youth and old age, we should not get stuck on Nafs e Ammârah, we should move on until we reach Nafs e Lawwâmah and finally, Nafs e Mutma’innah.
