Secrets Of Salah – 19

Salam,
Bismillah.

The lesson inherent in the words, Master of The Day of Judgment (1:3), is that the slave must acquire humility, and he must be just towards all, and always uphold justice, and always restrain himself from oppression and disobedience. He should reflect upon his preparations for the Last Day, and how sovereignty and power on that day will belong solely to Allah; this will be a Day when He will requite creation for their good and evil deeds, and this invokes praise for Allah.

The Quran says, It will be decided between them with justice and it will be said ‘All praise is for Allah, Lord of the worlds (39:75)

It is narrated that all of creation will praise Him that Day, the people of Paradise and the people of Hell for His justice and bounty. Hence, the words, All praise is for Allah, Lord of the worlds (1:1), describe the slave’s praise for Allah, whereupon He responds, ‘My salve has praised Me.’

So when the slave describes his Lord’s unique Kingship on that Day, for He is the Lord of the world and the Hereafter, the term is expressive of the Divine manifestation of Justice, Might, Majesty which will be apparent on that Day, as well as the truth of His Prophets. This praise is called Tamjeed (extolling).

Allah has said,

“My slave has extolled Me”

The meaning of the word Tamjeed conveys a meaning of praise evoked by contemplation of the Divine Majesty, Justice and Benevolence.

Secrets Of Salah – 3

Salam,
Bismillah.

Page 3..

Drought and famine repeatedly attack the heart and soul; therefore Allah renews the invitation to His banquet for His slave time and time again, five times a day as His special mercy. Each time the slave stands before his master appealing for divine kindness, his thirst is quenched by the one who sends spiritual rain for the hearts and clouds bearing the rain, so that the vegetation of Imaan does not wither and the fruits of goodness do not waste away, and so the heart may constantly be watered and nurtured by the rain of Divine Mercy.

The drought of the heart is heedlessness, and as long as the slave is in a state of remembering Allah and advancing towards Him, the rain of divine mercy falls upon him in gentle succession like continuous rain drops. But if he becomes heedless, his heart is afflicted with famine, in proportion to the extent of his heedlessness. Were heedlessness to become part of his nature, his heart would become like a dry barren desert, and the wild fire of worldly desires and lusts would wreak havoc in that desert, raging from all directions like a hot wind.  And his land would become barren, though it had been fertile once, with all kinds of fruits and vegetations. Yet if the rain of Divine mercy were to fall upon it, it could once again bloom, and flower and revert to its original state of beauty and lush greenery.

Wassalam.
