Bismihi Ta’ala 


*Life is a journey. There are ups and downs during one’s lifetime. So we need to be equipped with imaan, yaqeen and conviction upon Allah Ta’ala to facilitate challenges, difficulties and faillures. Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam used to make this du’as:*
سنن الترمذي – (عَنْ خَالِدِ بْنِ أَبِي عِمْرَانَ أَنَّ ابْنَ عُمَرَ قَالَقَلَّمَا كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُومُ مِنْ مَجْلِسٍ حَتَّى يَدْعُوَ بِهَؤُلَاءِ الدَّعَوَاتِ لِأَصْحَابِهِ اللَّهُمَّ اقْسِمْ لَنَا مِنْ خَشْيَتِكَ مَا يَحُولُ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ مَعَاصِيكَ وَمِنْ طَاعَتِكَ مَا تُبَلِّغُنَا بِهِ جَنَّتَكَ وَمِنْ الْيَقِينِ مَا تُهَوِّنُ بِهِ عَلَيْنَا مُصِيبَاتِ الدُّنْيَا وَمَتِّعْنَا بِأَسْمَاعِنَا وَأَبْصَارِنَا وَقُوَّتِنَا مَا أَحْيَيْتَنَا وَاجْعَلْهُ الْوَارِثَ مِنَّا وَاجْعَلْ ثَأْرَنَا عَلَى مَنْ ظَلَمَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى مَنْ عَادَانَا وَلَا تَجْعَلْ مُصِيبَتَنَا فِي دِينِنَا وَلَا تَجْعَلْ الدُّنْيَا أَكْبَرَ هَمِّنَا وَلَا مَبْلَغَ عِلْمِنَا وَلَا تُسَلِّطْ عَلَيْنَا مَنْ لَا يَرْحَمُنَا
*Allahoumma iqsim lanaa min khashyatika maa yaHoolou bainanaa wa baina ma’aasweeka wa min twa ‘atika maa toubal lighounaa bihi jannataka wa minal yaqeeni maa touhawwinou bihi ‘alainaa mouswibaatid dounya wa mat t’inaa bi asmaa ‘inaa wa abswaarinaa wa qouwwatina maa aHyaytanaa waj’alhoul waaritha minnaa waj’al tha’ranaa ‘alaa man zwalamanaa wan swournaa ‘alaa man ‘aadaanaa wa laa taj’al mouswibatanaa fee deeninaa wa laa taj’alid dounya akbara hamminaa wa laa mablagha ‘ilminaa wa laa tousallitw ‘alainaa man laa yarHamounaa*. (Tirmizi) ‘’*O Allah! Grant us that amount of your fear that will constitute a barrier between us and your disobedience, and grant us that quantity of your obedience that will bring us to To jannat, and (grant us) THAT QUANTITY OF YAQEEN/conviction that will facilitate us during difficulties. And keep sound and safe our ears, eyes and our bodily force until our last breath. And inherit us with our bodily faculties(on the day of qiyamah). And take revenge for us against the one who oppresses us and help us against those who cultivate enmity against us. And do not make difficulties/loss in our deen and let not this world become our main concern and let not this dunya be the product taken in exchange of our knowledge and do not impose upon us those who do not pity us.’’(Tirmizi)*
*Hazrat Mowlana Ibrahim Devla d.b. used to say the above du`as and say that Yaqeen, Imaan and* *Conviction is an asset to facilitate us during difficulties. That is we need to fill in the heart with Yaqeen and conviction against all odds of life. If we do not fill our hearts with imaan, then in difficult times, there will be no patience, no breath of hope, no salaah, no continuous du`as and hence our hearts will be filled with grief, hopelessness and that is the cause of depression, mental tiredness and suicide, etc.*
*The work of Tabligh jamaat objectively constitute to strengthen yaqeen. So when waves 🌊 of Delta, Omnicron, lies and conspiracies are at maximum, then I noticed jamaat saathis are constant on their salaahs in masjids and they are not worried about these trials. Simple equation: nothing will happen except by the permission of Allah Ta’ala. So good news to those who stock their yaqeen by spending time in jamaat. Else you can notice that those who felt jamaat work was unnecessary, then they get worried and drown in stress, fear and depression.*
*The Quran talks on the internal force of the mu-mins:*48:4هُوَ الَّذِي أنْزَلَ السَّكِينَةَ فِي قُلُوبِ المُؤْمِنِينَ لِيَزْدادُوا إيمانًا مَعَ إيمانِهِمْ ولِلَّهِ جُنُودُ السَّماواتِ والأرْضِ وكانَ اللَّهُ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا (٤)[48:4] *”He (Allah) is such that He sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers, so that they grow more in faith in* *addition to their (existing) faith*__ *And to Allah belong the forces of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is All-Knowing*, *All-Wise__ *”
سورة الأحزاب (٣٣): آية ٢٢]ولَمّا رَأ المُؤْمِنُونَ الأحْزابَ قالُوا هَذا ما وعَدَنا اللَّهُ ورَسُولُهُ وصَدَقَ اللَّهُ ورَسُولُهُ وما زادَهُمْ إلاَّ إيمانًا وتَسْلِيمًا
[33:22] *When the believers saw the coalition forces, they said, .This is what Allah and His messenger had promised to us, and* *Allah and His messenger had told the truth.. It only improved them further in faith and submission*. 
سورة آل عمران (٣): آية ١٧٣]الَّذِينَ قالَ لَهُمُ النّاسُ إنَّ النّاسَ قَدْ جَمَعُوا لَكُمْ فاخْشَوْهُمْ فَزادَهُمْ إيمانًا وقالُوا حَسْبُنا اللَّهُ ونِعْمَ 
*that is) those to whom people said, .The people have gathered against you; so, fear them*.. *It increased them* in *Faith and they said*, .*Allah is fully sufficient for us, and the best One in whom to trust*
*So when the news of waves 🌊 of tribulations reached them, they were not afraid and they rested on the laurels of yaqeen upon Allah Ta’ala. So do go in jamaat. Because tomorrow you will need the Yaqeen assets.*
