Jumada al-Thani Newsletter

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

Welcome to our fourth monthly newsletter, in the month of Jumada al-Thani.  As we enter a new month we continue to raise our hands in prayer for our brothers, sisters and children in Palestine who are still enduring the most terrible of oppressions. May Allah ﷻ grant an end and a victory for them all very soon.  In this newsletter we will highlight one of our books, share a selected prayer upon the prophet ﷺ from the Dala’il al-Khayrat, and a beautiful poem by Imam al-Haddad rahimahu Allah called “llzam Bab Rabbik,” (Cling to the Door of your Lord), in sha Allah.


Although this book was released some time ago it is an important subject matter especially in this age of materialism and disconnection to what really makes us human.  The author Dr Mostafa al-Badawi states that “materialism is one of the most malignant tendencies of the modern mind and unfortunately this tendency has affected many muslims today and has caused great disturbance in their manner of thinking.  Materialism means that you don’t see anything further than the immediate physical environment and you think that this is all that exists and this is permanent and unshakeable and that the laws governing this are immutable which in terms of religious thinking of any religion for that matter is complete nonsense.  

This world is the lowest level of existence, above it is the certain world, the world of subtle forms which is far faster than this and far more influential in its influence on us, then beyond that is the spiritual world which is even faster and more influential and more powerful.  If you profess to be muslim and you pray and fast, but you think in materialistic terms, then you will also become literalistic in your interpretations of the sacred texts of the Quran and the Sunnah and you will reduce everything to the materialistic level, which for a muslim is quite disastrous because this kind of interpretation makes a muslim lose all that is really valuable in his/her life which is spirituality.  You are a spiritual being who should be aiming to transcend your physical dimension and even psychic or subtle dimension and reach a spiritual level which can have access to the presence of Allah ﷻ.

One of the most important aims of this type of book is to make the invisible accessible to the modern mind and attempt to free one’s thinking from the materialistic prison that a lot of muslims nowadays are locked up in.

If you want to understand what makes someone human you really have to regain touch with the invisible dimensions which are in fact all that matters. Once you die and you leave your body you leave the materialistic dimensions all together, you’re no longer in the material world.  If all you’re interested in, in this world is how to take care of your body, feed it, treat it, clothe it, perfume it and all the rest of it, then when you die this will suddenly disappear and what you will be left with will be nothing! But if you are living in the spiritual dimension then what you will be left with is everything, you will have gained everything because you will have worked for it in this world.  

The purpose of such books is to help the youth (especially) to connect with their higher realities so that they start finding their motivation, they start perceiving the influence it has on them, they start attracting the influences of the higher spiritual worlds and therefore expand and grow spiritually which is the main purpose of a human being’s presence on earth.”

A Higher Reality, Dr Mostafa al-Badawi


اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنَا مِنْ خَيْرِ المُصَلِّينَ وَالمُسَلِّمِينَ عَلَيْهِ، وَمِنْ خَيْرِ المُقَرَّبِينَ مِنْهُ وَالوَارِدِينَ عَلَيْهِ، وَمِنْ أَخْيَارِ المُحِبِّينَ فِيهِ وَالمَحْبُوبِينَ لَدَيْهِ، وَفَرِّحْنَا بِهِ فِي عَرَصَاتِ القِيَامَةِ، وَاجْعَلْهُ لَنَا دَلِيلًا إِلَى جَنَّةِ النَّعِيمِ، بِلَا مَؤُونَةٍ وَلَا مَشَقَّةٍ وَلَا مُنَاقَشَةِ الحِسَابِ، وَاجْعَلْهُ مُقْبِلًا عَلَيْنَا، وَلَا تَجْعَلْهُ غَاضِبًا عَلَيْنَا، وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَلِوَالِدِينَا وَلِجَمِيعِ المُسْلِمِينَ، الأَحْيَاءِ مِنْهُمْ وَالمَيِّتِينَ، وَآخِرُ دَعْوَانَا أَنِ الحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ العَالَمِینَ

O Allah, make us among the best of those who bless him ﷺ pray for peace upon him, and among the best of those near to him ﷺ those who come to him. Make us among the best of those who love him ﷺ those who are loved by him. And delight us with his companionship in the courtyards on the Day of Standing. Make him ﷺ a guide for us to the Garden of Bliss, without troubles, difficulty nor debate of the account. Compel him ﷺ to welcome us, and do not make him angry with us. Forgive us and our parents and all the Muslims, the living among them and the passed. The end of our prayer is: Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.  (Part 6:19)

This beautiful poem written by Imam al-Haddad qaddasAllah sirrahu brings counsel, comfort and much wisdom to those who reflect upon it.  Translated by Habib Umar bin Hafiz hafidhahu Allah, it is recommended to read when facing any difficulty, worry or if feeling depressed.  May it bring healing to every heart that recites it and to the whole ummah at large.  Ameen.

Let not your worries overwhelm you, whatever was ordained will come to pass.

Cling to the door of your Lord, leave everything else aside, ask Him for safety from the abode of tribulations.

Let not your heart be restricted every temporal thing will soon fade, Allah is the Ordainer, and this world is His affair.

Your thoughts and preferences, leave them behind together with your plans.  And witness the One who created you alone.

Your Patron Lord, The Guardian, indeed He sees you, entrust all your affairs to Him, and then maintain the best of opinions.

If? Why? How? Is the speech of fools, opposing Allah, the One who created (everything).

And (the One who) preordained and decreed everything in truth, O my heart take heed, and abandon your impertinence.

The Exalted has guaranteed all necessary provisions in the Revealed Book, a light for all creation.

So contentment (with the decree) is obligatory, and discontentment forbidden. Frugality in everything is comfort, while covetousness is insanity. 

You and the whole of creation are all mere servants (of Allah) and the Lord does to us whatever He wills.

Your worries and sorrows – woe to you – bring you no benefit.  The decree has already foregone, so seize this tranquility.

That which is meant for others will never come to you and that which has been apportioned for you will soon be attained. 

So occupy yourself solely with your Lord and what is required of you with regards to the obligatory realities and the protected Sacred Law. 

The Law of the Chosen One, the Guide, the Bringer of Glad Tidings, the Seal of Prophets, the Illumined Full Moon.

The Blessings of Allah, the All-Powerful Lord, be upon him so long as the morning breeze sways
