The Formula for Subjugating the Entire Universe

A businessman from Delhi once joined the Tableegh Jamaat and travelled to Sindh. On his return, he gave a report back to Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) of the manner in which the work was carried out. Thereupon, Hazrat Moulana mentioned the following:

“Friends! This work which Allah Ta’ala has blessed us with (of striving in the path of Allah Ta’ala and inviting people towards Deen) is a formula for subjugating the entire universe. The one who becomes loyal to Allah Ta’ala, Allah Ta’ala makes everything work out for him. If you continue to fulfil Allah Ta’ala’s commandments and remain obedient to Him, He will cause the sky, the earth, the winds and everything in the universe to be subservient to you. When you have made such sacrifices, that you have left your homes and businesses to come out in the path of Allah Ta’ala, you will witness, with your own eyes, the immense barakah that Allah Ta’ala will bless you with in your lives and businesses. Continue to serve the Deen of Allah Ta’ala and have hope in receiving His Divine help and mercy. Never ever lose hope in His Divine help and mercy. The one who loses hope in Allah Ta’ala’s Divine help and mercy is a sinner and a total loser in the sight of Allah Ta’ala.” (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 90)

Constantly Examining One’s Intention

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

When any servant of Allah wishes to carry out a righteous deed, Shaitaan tries to prevent him in different ways and places numerous obstacles and difficulties in his path. However, if all the obstructions and obstacles of Shaitaan fail to prevent him, and he succeeds in commencing the righteous deed, then Shaitaan begins a second effort. The second effort of Shaitaan is to corrupt the sincerity and purity of the servant’s action, or to try and claim a share of this righteous deed by making him do it not solely for Allah Ta’ala. In other words, Shaitaan will make an effort to include ostentation and show into his intention and at times, create flaws in his intention on account of worldly motives, thereby destroying the purity of the action. Shaitaan is sometimes successful in the effort of corrupting the servant’s good deeds. It is thus essential for all those who are involved in any Deeni khidmat to be mindful of the plots of Shaitaan, to perpetually safeguard their hearts from his whispers, and to continuously examine their intention before carrying out any deed. The reason is that if one carries out any action with an intention besides earning the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala, this action will not be accepted by Allah Ta’ala.

Hating the Ways of the Kuffaar

Ways-to-troubleshoot-appsHazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once made the following du’aa: O Allah! Grant us the taufeeq of showing kindness and compassion to the kuffaar, as they are also Your servants, and enable us to fulfil their rights (and treat them justly). However, create within our hearts the aversion and hatred for their kufr and wrongs. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.76)

Looking for Ways to Benefit the Ummah

Power-SearchHazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

We should now and again take out time to think about the areas and places in which we will be able to work and influence people towards Deen. Thereafter, we should look for ways whereby we may succeed in inviting them and drawing them close to Allah Ta’ala. After determining the plan of action, we should place our reliance upon Allah Ta’ala and commence the work. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.64)

Placing one’s Reliance on Allah Ta’ala

1Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

A person becoming despondent of Deeni progress on account of lack of resources is in actual fact a sign that his reliance on worldly means is more than his conviction upon the power of Allah Ta’ala and His promises. One should place his reliance entirely upon Allah Ta’ala and work with determination. Allah Ta’ala will create the means for the work to be accomplished. Otherwise, without the Divine help of Allah Ta’ala, what can man do of his own accord? Nevertheless, mustering up courage and determination and striving is vitally important in order to receive the Divine help of Allah Ta’ala.
