The Dispraise Of Hawaa (desires)

Post by Noor'e Sahar on Thu Jul 22, 2010 1:14 am

Translated by Dr. Saleh as-Saleh and Published by Daar al-Bukhari
"Allaah will give shade to seven, on the Day when there will
be no shade but His."

(These seven persons are):
<blockquote>1. A just ruler,
2. A youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allaah, (i.e.
worships Allaah subhanahu wa ta`alaa
sincerely from his childhood),
3. A man whose heart is attached to the mosques (i.e. he offers the
five compulsory Salaat (prayers) in the mosques),
4. Two persons who love each other only for Allaah's Sake and they
meet and part in Allaah's Cause only,
5. A man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for
illegal sexual intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allaah,
6. A man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand
does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much
he has given in charity), and
7. A person who remembers Allaah in seclusion and his eyes become
flooded with tears."</blockquote>
[Reported by Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim. The text is that of
Al-Bukhaaree: Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree, V.1, Hadeeth #629.]
If you contemplate about the seven whom Allaah will shade in the
shade of His `Arsh wherein there is no shade but His, you will find that
they deserved that shade because of their opposition to al-Hawaa.
Indeed the Imaam having authority and power will not be able to
establish justice except by opposing his Hawaa. And with respect to the
youth who prefers the sincere worship of Allaah over the urge of his
youthfulness, had it not been for the opposition of his Hawaa, he would
not be able to accomplish this state of worship. As to the person whose
heart is attached to the mosques, the thing that drove him to this
condition is the opposition of al-Hawaa which invites him tot he places
of lusts.
Concerning the person who gives charitable gifts secretly so that his
left hand does not know what his right hand has given, had it not been
for his subduing of his Hawaa, he would not have been able to attain
this state. And the person who was invited by a charming woman of noble
birth (to have illegal sexual intercourse with her), feared Allaah and
opposed his Hawaa. As to the one who remembers Allaah in seclusion and
his eyes become flooded with tears for fearing Him, the thing that made
him reach this state is the opposing of his Hawaa. Consequently, they
were saved from being affected by the intense heat of the Al-Mawqif on
the Day of Resurrection and the sweating therein. The people (adhering
to) Al-Hawaa will experience the utmost degree of intense heat and
sweating while they are waiting to enter the "Prison of Al-Hawaa".
Allaah subhanahu wa ta`aala is the One to be petitioned to grant us
protection from the Ahwaas; (Sing. Hawaa) of ourselves which are
inclined to evil, and that He makes our Hawaa in accordance with what He
loves and is acceptable to Him. He has power over all things, and He is
most worthy of answering our petition.
