Facilitate and Do Not Make Things Difficult: Interesting Commentary by Abul Abbas Al-Mursi

Basmala

 

The Prophet said “Facilitate and do not make things difficult.”

Commenting on this hadeeth, The Sheikh (Abul Abbas Al-Mursi) said:

“In other words, lead people to Allah and to nothing else. He who leads you to this world has deceived you and he who leads you to good deeds will wear you down. But he who leads you to Allah has counseled you aright.” [Taken from Lataa'if Al-Minan]

    “In other words, lead people to Allah and to nothing else.”
    First “one” has to be lead to the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH)?

    I didn’t comment on this before, but after doing dawah, all this stuff that I wish someone had shared this nasiha with me before.

    It’s had a big impact on me, so jazaka Allah khayr. :)

    In order for one to know and worship Allah properly, such a person must follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad(sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).

    Allah says in the Qur’an;

    3:31 Say: “If ye do love Allah, follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most merciful.”

    If we were to speak about the past and Prophet Nuh was sent to us, we would have to follow him in order to worship Allah. If Musa was sent to us we would have to follow him. Just like in the bible when Prophet ‘Isa was reported saying in John 14:6

    “.. no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”,

    ‘Isa is saying ‘ None can worship Allah properly and gain His pleasure unless the people(i.e. The Children of Israel) follow my teaching to them because I am the one who was sent to them(i.e. The Children of Isreal) and this is the straight path.’

    Anything other than the way of the Prophets of Allah(peace be upon them all) is innovation.

    Wallahu ’3alim

    …In my opinion the sheikh(raheemahullah) is saying when one gains love for Allah, this love alone will lead the heart of the lover to perform deeds in which Allah is pleased with(i.e. The Sunnah)

    as salamu ‘alaykum

    tru_Qur’an, that is what I got from it as well, alhamdulillah.

  6. AbuYazid_Muayid says:

    adhrath Ibn Abbaas (Radhiyallaahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) sent Hadhrath Mu’az bin Jabal (Radhiyallaahu Anhu) to Yemen and ordered him, ‘Call the people to bear witness that there is no One worthy of worship but Allah and verily I am the Prophet of Allah. If they obey you then tell them Allah has made compulsory upon you five Salaats during the day and night. If they obey you then inform them that Allah has made Sadaqah compulsory on their wealth – the wealth be taken from them (those who accepted Islam) and be distributed to their poor (Muslims).’ (Bukhari vol. 187 p. 202)

    At Tawheed first, once the heart knows it’s Lord and puts its trust in Him alone forsaking all others it is strong enough to pray, pay zakat, fat, and go on Hajj. The heart that thinks what about my job, my money, my wife, my son, my pleasure can not perform good deeds for it’s Lord.

  7. tru_Qur'an says:
