    Showing loyalty to the Master

    Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned: Allah Ta‘ala takes an oath on the horse and it’s loyalty in Surah Wal-‘aadiyaat. The master merely feeds it and takes a little care of it, yet it is prepared to risk its life and do anything for him. Now when Allah Ta‘ala …

    Joining the Company of the Ahlullah

    If we join the company of the lovers of Allah Ta‘ala, we will also be blessed and favoured. The third class of a train reaches wherever the first class reaches. A dog is impure and najis. However the dog that accompanied the Ashaab-e-Kahf (people of the cave), who were a …
