  • Are you an Aashiq or a Faasiq?


    A Sheikh said that the ‘Aashiq’ (lover) who is enamored and beguiled by figurative beauty is, in fact, no Aashiq, rather a faasiq (sinner).
    If this beautiful lady or handsome man has to meet with an accident and suffer third degree burns, that beauty and good looks is replaced with deformity and an ugliness which makes all their lovers ‘disappear’. An infatuation and an obsession that is only skin-deep, skin-toned and skin-textured is then inverted and reduced to rejection, aversion and revulsion. …And yet millions are drowning in the ocean of such insincere love.
    The love that is merely as a result of colour and complexion
    Is not love at all.
    It is, in fact, evil and its end result is only shame and disgrace.
    For the love of a dying one is not lasting,
    Because the dying are not coming to us,
    Rather they are leaving us.

    …When the beloved passes away and is wrapped in his/her shroud, then this ‘love’ too is wrapped in the same and buried along with.
    This figurative beauty only lasts for a limited number of days.
    It is only for a whisper of time that the conspiracy lasts…

    Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) had said : “Love whomsoever or whatsoever you wish, but one day you are to separate from him/her/it.”

    Then again, were we to go, after a few months, and sift the sand of the graves of those beloveds, we will not find even a trace of those beautiful faces and those beautiful eyes and those beautiful locks of hair. The reality of beauty is exposed…that it was only sand…We were ‘in love’ with sand… Imagine that.
    Just reflect over the advice of the Sheikh :
    Why attach the heart to that… that which will become…
    become a decaying …a decaying, rotting corpse ?
    Jo kaam karta hai tu chup ke jahaan se
    koi dekhta hai tujhe aasmaan se

      Inspiring, to say the least.

      Love Allah unconditionally, He'll be there for you on the Last Day.
      Love anyone else unconditionally, you are on your own.

      Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

      "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
      - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

        Rajab is a month of cultivation, Shaban is month of irrigating the fields, and the month of Ramadhan is a month of reaping and harvesting.”
