Munyatul Musolli ( Tatmimul Faa’idah) 15th February 2009

The Prophet (saw) has said:

ما من عبد مظلوم فشخص ببصره إلى السماء إلا قال الله عزوجل لبيك عبدي حقا عليَّ لأنصرنك ولو بعد حين

Anybody who has been wronged, and raised his eyes towards the heavens
(supplicating for help), Allah will say “O My servant, I hear your call, it is
just a matter of time before I help you”.

In another hadith the Prophet (saw) broke down acts of zholim into three:
  • One that can never be forgiven – taking something else besides Allah as a god.
  • One that is accountable – a zholim act among fellow men. Will not be forgiven unless absolved by the party ebing wronged.
  • One that can be forgiven – every sin committed on oneself.

Mu’awiyah (ra) said: “I would humiliate myself if I commit zholim on a person who has nobody to fend for himself but Allah The Most High.

Some wise men have said:
  • When doing zholim on somebody, remind yourself on how Allah has been fair to him.
  • When you in possession of authority, remind yourself of Allah’s authority over you.
  • Never be awed by your own ability to take life because your life will be taken away just the same.

Abu Nur bin Yazid has said that a building, which founding material been taken away from the rightful owner unjustly, is liable to collapse sooner.

It is related that in his youth, Kisra had been educated by a teacher on manners. Once his teacher hit him while he had committed nothing wrong.
Later when he became the king, he asked his teacher why he had done zholim by hitting him on that particular day. The teacher answered:
“ I saw you have particular interest in manners, and I hoped that you would take over the kingdom after your father. I made you the receiving end of tyranny so you would never become a tyrant”.

Ustaz Zakaria said:
  • It is not allowed to transfer a floor carpet or any material from a masjid to a surau or another building of lesser rank.
  • Never foster anger towards your teacher, this is unmannered.
    Shaykh Usman Perlis once in a middle of lesson on tasawwuf (Hikam) ordered his students out to pull weed from the lemon trees. Some who thought this order weird went home instead. The Shaykh then called the remaining students back in, and explained: “This is tasawwuf, it is all about manners. How are you going to get any benefit if you distrust your teacher?”.
    Shaykhs Usman, Haji Abdul Qadir Ga’al, Shihabuddin Bukit Mertajam, all learned together under Shaykh Abdullah Tahir in Bunut Payung, Kelantan. During this time, Tok Kenali had become old and his pondok was not as popular.

Wallahu a'lam
