Rizq

3992

Love is also a form of Rizq (sustenance from heavens). Don’t you see the Prophet ﷺ saying about Sayyida Khadija radi Allahu ‘anha

I was granted the Rizq of her love

Meri Mushkil Ko Yu(N) Aa’saa(N) Mere Mushkil Kusha Karde
Har eK Mouj-E-Bala Ko Mere Mawla Na Khuda Karde

Thus render easy, my each and every tribulation, oh my eradicator of tribulation —
and steer me safely over the crashing waves of each and every misfortune.

Sayyiduna al-Tufayl ibn ‘Amr (radi Allahu ‘anhu) was the chief of the Daws – a tribe which resided outside Makkah al-Mukarammah. He accepted Islam after meeting the Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) on one of his visits to the city.

Upon returning to his tribe, he invited them to adopt his new faith. All but a few resisted his call. Sayyiduna al-Tufayl ibn ‘Amr (radi Allahu ‘anhu) visited Makkah al-Mukkaramah again and informed the Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) of his people’s response. He was instructed to return to them and constinue his call. The next time Sayyiduna al-Tufayl ibn ‘Amr (radi Allahu ‘anhu) met the Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was after the battle of Khandaq in Madinah al-Munawwarah. He arrived along with eighty Muslim families from his tribe.

Sayyiduna al-Tufayl ibn ‘Amr (radi Allahu ‘anhu) stayed with the Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) until the Conquest of Makkah al-Mukkaramah. Sayyiduna al-Tufayl ibn ‘Amr (radi Allahu ‘anhu) returned to his tribe and burnt their idol. After realising the futility of their pagan religion, his entire tribe came into the fold of Islam. Sayyiduna al-Tufayl ibn ‘Amr (radi Allahu ‘anhu) was granted matyrdom in the battle of al-Yamamah during the Caplihate of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr al-Sasiq (radi Allahu ‘anhu)

Travel

Love is a travel.
All travelers whether they want or not are changed.
No one can travel into love and remain the same.

Once Shaykh Ibrahim bin Adham رحمة الله عليه saw a stone with the inscription;

Turn me over and read!

When he did an inscription appeared;

You do not practice what you know. Why do you seek what you do not know?

I implore Allah جل جلاله to bestow upon us, you, and all seekers, perfect etiquette towards Him, fear of Him, and proximity with Him; that He open the doors of closeness and nearness to Him for us and you. We ask Him to fill our hearts with love and the secrets of gnosis. There is no capability except from Allah; upon Him I rely and to Him I turn.
