Adam’s (AS) Story is the Story of Entire Mankind (Islamabad, Pakistan. Dated: 30th March 2009)
“Listen to Adam’s (AS) story, who arrive in this world as a representative of Allah, who was prostrated by the angels by the order of Allah, don’t you see your own story in the story of Adam (AS)? Don’t I see my own story in it?
Allah removed his loneliness, he got married. He was told to do these things and not to do these things and he said yes. The devil mislead him and he got mislead and did what was forbidden. Doesn’t this happen to us? If someone thinks that No this doesn’t happen to me, then he is not a human, he would be an angel.
Adam’s (AS) story is very simple. This story is not only his story but is the story of the entire mankind. Means that a human is full of err, full of mistakes. He will do wrong but should also accept his wrong doing. You can read the story of Adam (AS) in the Quran, can listen to it.
So what happened that Allah showed His displeasure and said that you will go to the world, you cannot stay in the heaven. So he came to this earth and started asking for forgiveness.
We are told to come for prayers. We don’t go for prayers! Why are we told to pray? Why are we told to pray in the morning? Why are we told to pray in the afternoon (Zuhr)? Why are we told to pray at Asr? Why are we told to pray at Maghrib (sunset)? Why are we told to pray at Isha (night)? One prayer was enough if Allah wished.
But there is a lot of wisdom in it where my mind cannot reach, but one thing is clear. It is obvious that a human will go out for his necessities, will go to the markets, will go to the farms, will sit in the offices, will work hard, will earn money, meet with people, he will dogood deeds and will also do wrong deeds. So there should be a way for remedying the wrongs. Allah has commanded us that He wants to see us clean, clean from all the sins, He opened a door for you…come and pray, purify yourself from all sins, get rid of all the sins, so why do we feel burdened by praying five times a day when we want Allah’s love and gain His proximity?
So friends! The way is very easy. While sins, they happen; Adam (AS) had sinned and spent all his life in regret and asked for forgiveness all his life.”
All Human Have Four Eyes (Extract Translated from the article “Ehl-e-Zikr Hazraat ke Khidmat May Chund Maaruzaat”)
Imam Ghazali Rehmat ullah Eleh says in his famous book “Ahya-e-Uloom”, “All humans have four eyes. Two are present at his head which he uses to view the worldly affairs, understand the gains and losses whereas two eyes are present in the heart, with which he sees the life hereafter, distinguishes between the right and the wrong, understands the difference between what is allowed (Halal) and what is forbidden (Haram)”.
One Has to Leave Them Behind!!! (Annual Urs Markaz at Tool Plaza, Karachi, Pakistan 2007)
“A king sent his servant to an Allah wala (devotee to Allah) with a Deh. Deh in Sindhi means some acre of land, and asked his servant to go and present it to the Allah wala. When the servant came and presented the documents, he did not even look at those papers. The servant said that Sir, the King wants to present you a Deh. He said a beautiful verse, we have a lesson for us in it:
Shah hammara deh dihat minnat nehat
Raazikma Raazikima aa Rizk peh minnat dehat
And said, the King is giving me a Deh and is also boasting about it. I devote myself to my God who provides me and never boasts about it. So why should I get indebted of the King. For me, my Allah is enough.
I ask you all, if Allah asks us about everything that he has given us, will we be able to repay Him. This air, this water, this land … who’s is it? We say, this land is mine, this garden is mine, this is my farm, this is my house, this is my property. Friends! Many have come in the world who said this.
A rich man visited Hazrat Shah Ghulamali Dehelvi (RA) and said the Sir, your shrine is withered, I will devote a section of my palace for you, you should move there. He said when someone has to go he just goes.. For him, his own house or someone else’s is the same; an old house or a new one both is equal. How are they equal? One has to leave them behind.”
The Eye of Admonitory (Manchester, UK, 2008)
“If we look at this pillar, for years it is standing like this holding the roof for us to sit underneath it in warm and cold weather, we are enjoying the serenity under this roof. We are getting the benefit whereas the pillar itself has no advantage from it. Our lives should be like this pillar without any intention of getting benefits”.
“A tree spreads its branches, tolerates the extreme rays of the sun, bears hot winds but never complains; is never thankless. The tree remains green if it gets water, still remains green if it does not get water. If we look at ourselves, we have so many blessings; we eat so many different kinds of foods, we make so many clothes, women make so many jewelries, but remain thankless. If we have the eye of admonitory (ibrat ke nazar), then everything will take us towards Allah, even a stone which is not live will take us towards Allah”.
The Reason of Existence (Dargah Allah Abad Shareef, Kandyaro, Pakistan May 2008)
“The most important objective of a person’s life is his reverence to Allah. He should spend every moment in the Zikr (remembrance) of Allah. A heedless person is like a peel of the banana that is neither eaten by the human nor by an animal.
A human should learn a lesson from a tree that stands in the scorching sun but gives shade to Allah’s creatures. The tree is among the signs of Allah; when someone throws a stone at the tree, it returns him a fruit. The reason of the creation of a tree is so magnificent; the existence of a human being is even more glorious. And that is love of Allah, His Zikr (remembrance) and devotion”.
