bab uzlah

'A chapter in cutting yourself give peaceness of heart than bad company'

Nasaih p 333
- relationship and love
1) whenever somebody loves this person and keep their company
2) the person is not saliheen but helps you in obedient to Allah. This is love from Allah
4) purely duniyawi - mubah
5) he helps to do zulm / wrong and mischief, this love is ugly. It is blameworthy and will lead to enormisity - 'Al-akhila'i yawma izin 'aduwun illal muttaqun'

Allah (Glory be to Him) has told us about those bad companies and they will divorce themselves from one another in the Hereafter. Allah says:"Friends on that Day will be foes one to another except Al-Muttaqûn (the pious)"

Of what has been said concerning this Ayah is:`Ali ibn Abu Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated concerning Allah's saying:"Friends on that Day will be foes one to another except Al-Muttaqûn (the pious)."It is the example of two believing and two disbelieving friends. When one of the believers died and was given glad tidings with Paradise, he mentioned his friend and said:O Allah, if my friend is commanding me with Your obedience and the obedience of your Messenger and commands me of good, forbids me from committing sins and reminds me of Your encounter, do not mislead him after me until You show him what You have shown me and be pleased with him as You were pleased with me. It will be said to him:"go! If you were to know what I have saved for him, you would laugh a lot and cry little." Then, the other person dies and their souls meet. It will be said to them:Let each one of you praise the other. Each one will say to his friend:How good companion and friend you were. However, when one of the disbelievers die, he will be given bad tiding with Hell. Then he would remember his friend saying:O Allah, my friend used to command me of disobeying You and Your Messenger. He commanded me of evil and forbad me from good and informed me that I won't meet You. O Allah, do not guide him after me until You show him what You have shown me and exasperate him as You exasperated me. When the other person dies, their souls meet. Then, it will be said:Let each one of you praise the other.Each one will say to the other:How bad company and bad friend you were.[Reported by `Abdul-Razzaq and `Abd ibn Humayd in their interpretations of the Qur'an].

Risalatul Mu'awana intro 08/05, 1/11/09 (p2), 13/12/09, 4/6/11 (p3)

- Habib Ali HafizahuLlah said read Book of Assistance as group of individuals as hearts become firmer, it will bring bond of love and love for Allah.
Habib Umar HafizahuLLah: make sure you are never calling to an individual except RasuluLlah sallaLlahu alayhi wasallam. Don't call to people and make differentiation in the community.
- traditional islam: recognising the pious predecessor, recognising their sacrifice. Wisdom, fair exhortation - qur'an and sunnah (don't go on side issues). When someone asked Habib Ahmad RahmatuLLahi 'alayh to give a talk, he said 'khuz min bukhari' 3x
- call to the Qur'an with the method of sunna

- true 'ulama: felicity written for them. inheritor from the prophet from two ahadith.
Abud-Dardaa (radyAllaahu ‘anhu) reported: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) say: ‘Whoever treads a path due to which he seeks knowledge, Allaah will make him tread one of the paths towards Paradise. And the angels lower their wings out of contentment for the seeker of knowledge. And verily all those in the heavens and in the earth, even the fish in the depths of the sea ask forgiveness for the scholar. And verily, the virtue of the scholar over the worshipper is like the virtue of the moon on the night of Al-Badr over all of the stars. Indeed, the scholars are the inheritors of the prophets, for the prophets do not leave behind a dinar or a dirham for inheritance, but rather, they leave behind knowledge. So whoever takes hold of it, has acquired a large share (i.e. of inheritance).’” 

 ‘The scholars are the inheritors of the prophets?’ The prophets do not leave behind any inheritance except knowledge, and the knowledge of our Prophet r is his Sunnah. So whoever is deprived of learning it is not from the inheritors of the prophets.”

- (Qul - command to rasulilLlah salaLlahu 'alayhi wasallam, x11:108)
- taba'ni = one after the next. if we don't take it from tabi'een then we might have outward Islam.
can't pass knowledge except correct imitation of the generation before 'husni ittiba'. 'wa man tabi'ani' = chain from RasuluLlah salaLlahu 'alayhi wasallam.

Imaam Ibn Seereen (rahimahullaah) said: 'Indeed, This knowledge Is Deen, So Look To The One You Take Your Deen From

- Amma ba'du: first one who say amma ba'du is S Hasyim, the orrator of Quraisy. He'll praise Allah in Ka'bah and said amma ba'du.
S Hasyim - established himself as the leader of Quraisy, hence Arab. In the time of Jesus, leader of Arab is Adnan. S Hasyim can give speeches in pure arabic.

- faqir = pauper,poor servant. from latin; poor, english; under poor law - poor people under the parish, implies dependency
origin - radia - low, poor quality, one who lower themselves, humble, don't have enough to support dependant.
'antumul fuqara ilaLlah': being in need
'khuliqal insanu dhaifa'
Syeikh related the story of a king who is travelling in his land. He saw a man sitting under a tree after working hard. He was singing,'water and bread and shade.. this is the ultimate in blessings'. The king was troubled hearing this. The next day, he asked his servant to bring the man and the man asked him 'would you give half of your kingdom if you are thirsty?'..... everything you have is not more valuable than a glass of water and a glass of urine'.
- du'a mukhul ibadah: should be in total need eg du'a istisqa' (rain prayer)
“O Allah, make me fear You as if I see You, make me happy with my being pious to You, do not make me wretched by Your disobedience, choose for me the best of Your decrees, and bless Your fate to me so that I may not like to hasten what You have delayed, or to delay what You have hastened, and make my richness be in my soul.” Al-Mu’jam al-Awsat, vol. 6 p. 121
rewards: 'yadkhulu fuqara' before aghniya' to Jannah one day ie 500 years. Related by Imam Bukhari on the chapter of Fadhlul Fuqara', Ibnu Majah in the chapter of 'Station for destitute'. He said which means: "I saw Paradise (in laylatul isra') and I saw many residents are fuqara '(the poor) and I look to the Fire, I saw many residents are women." (Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

- mu'tarif = confessing. In church, once a year. Apparently from Prophet Jesus and say to the apostle - breath your confession. Confession in Islam = faqir. 
That's why the dars finish with Ya Rabbana'tarafna... 'Innama yakhsyaAllahu 'ulama'
Ya Rabbi Ya 'alimal Haal, Qad kafani - admitting your state, then we can move foward.
Sayyidul istighfar (Bukhari): abu'u laka = i'tiraf, wa'taraftu zanbi 

- 'afwa = wind in the desert, wipe out all traces

- sharif = linguistically: top of the mountain, someone top in the community

- jama'a = gathers together

- if someone saw something wrong in the community and not change it, I'm afraid that Allah will punish the whole community

- mau'izatul hasana = methodology, style and approach applicable to community. Hikma - AlQur'an. Mau'izoh - Hadith

- some knowledge are more relevant now eg travelling from sunset to sunrise in one day. eg when fitna come to masjid, stay in the house (fighting in the masjid, pray at home)

Ibn ‘Adi mentions a hadith that the Prophet, peace upon him, said:
Should I not inform you of the most generous of all? Allah is the most generous of all, and I am the most generous of humanity. After me the most generous person is a man who learns something beneficial and disseminates it. He will be resurrected on the Day of Ressurection as an individual nation. Likewise, is a man who gives his life in the way of Allah. (Ibn ‘Adi, al-Kamil, 1:350). A teacher will have generousity and love to their students and have smile on their face.

Allahumma alhimni rusydi,. Wa a'izni min syarri nafsi.(protection from big and small shirk)

- Imam Haddad use the word you for 1) for himself 2) to sadah 3) to us

- taubikh = threat, big deep warning, slap on the wrist.(2:44)  Ata'murunan Naasa bil birr = istifham altaubikh. do you not expecting answer. Asbabun nuzul: bani nadir, one of the in-law became muslim. The Jewish said 'yes, you are in good religion and you should be steadfast'.
Afala ta'qiloon 
1) animal: aqala = put rope in the neck, take control and ride on it. According to traditional tafseer: Albagahawi etc - do you not restrain the beast?
2) do you not understand?

"A man will be brought on the Day of Resurrection and thrown into the Fire.  Then his entrails will be spilled out into the Fire (his reality will be manifested) and he will be forced to walk around and around like a donkey in a treadmill.  The people of Hell will gather around him and say, ‘O so-and-so, what is wrong with you?  Did you not enjoin us to do good and forbid us to do wrong?’  He will say, ‘I used to order you to do good, but I did not do it and I used to forbid you to do evil, but I used to do it myself.’  Then he will walk around and around like a donkey in a treadmill." Sahih Bukhari, sahih muslim

-  the scholars who knows but not act upon it is like candle...
- (asyaddu in Day of Judgement are scholars, tabrani, bayhaqi)
- Abu Darda': 'waylun liman lam ya'lamu mar'ah wa waylun liman 'alima but not act upon it 1000 times. Wayl = valley in Jahannam
-(Tustari: all people are in drunkedness except 'ulama, every 'ulama are confused except those who act on their knowledge)

- From Bidayatul Hidayah, read the text, here I point to the beginning of guidance (Qabiltu isyarah), accepting the book is the beginning of the path. Habib Umar HafizahuLlah said the beginning is bidayah and the inayah is ihya'.
3 types of students of knowledge
1) Rajulun Talibul Ilm who take knowledge as mean so that he has provision for next world and countenance of His Lord = successful. no other desire except for the next world.
2) Rajulun who seeks benefits in this world, status and wealth, and he knows this and he is in danger. Perhaps, he should fear for su'ul khatimah. If he did tawbah and start acting with what he knew, tahaquq bil faizeen because those who repent from sin are like someone who didn't have sin at all.
3) The one syaitan tricked and overwhelmed him, goes out to make living out of knowledge and he wants to be proud of it (tafakkhur) - boasting how many followers he had, wear sign of 'ulama and he speaks like 'ulama, means to gather wealth, minal halikeen, forgotten ' lima taqooloo ma la taf'aloon.'
Abu Dhar said, "I was with the Prophet (SAW) one day and I heard him saying: "There is something I fear for my Ummah than the Dajjal." It was then that I became afraid, so I said: "Oh Rasool Allah! Which thing is that?" He (SAW) said; "Misguided and astray scholars." [Musnad Ahmad (5/145) No. 21334 and 21335]
How can it be? Ulama su'  is worst as dajjal tricked people whereas scholars deceive people by his action and ahwalihi. Lisanul haal afsahu min lisanil aqwal
So be from 1) and not 3)

Habib Abdullah Al-Haddad (nafa'anaAllahu bihi fid darayn) at the end of his life, he does not want to eat meat that he will be asked. He was very thin and passed away emaciated. He had cloth just enough to cover his body.

(Abu darda: curse be the one who doesn't learn and curse 1000x to the one who learn but does not act)

ajwad = wind

a man asked Habib Abdullah for advice for his deen
Habib Attas left Yamen and student wrote to him, now that you have left us, the deen is more difficult for us. He wrote a book for them.(Salik salatil saada?). His name is AbuBakar. Communist stopped the plane trying to find Habib Attas but he went to Jeddah and died 25 years later.

Habib Muhammad AlHaddad used to study with his feet dangling on the roof top so he won't lose concentration. if he fell down, he die

syahawat: passion can be positive. 'la yu'minu ahadukum hatta hawahu in acc to what I've brought (lima ji'tu ni). Hawa - passion is positive in here. Something negative can be positive by training.
S Yusuf said 'I do not claim innocent for myself'
Some said it's the amir because they do not judge in hasten. ma rahima rabbi - ma use as man. Baghawi, ma taba lakum - malaika. The bad passion becomes angelic
getting married is from sunnah - fankihu ma taba lakum
nafs become purify by following sunnah
La uqsimu binnafsi lawwamah - high state - reproachful nafs
nafsu mutmainah - radhiya mardhiyah - peace, satisfaction, satisfied
taba': imprint, ithma - saved from evil, shown mercy
Sahl altustari - taba' creation (khalq). people are miniature of great creation as sign fil afaq wa fi anfusikum - people are the greates of creation
1) animal: eg batn wal farj
2) syaitan and laibu (wahm?) makhru alkhida
3) taba'a sakhra - magician and plotting, TV internet imprint in something pure
4) iblis - rejection and pride
solah - connected with fasting - stop from animalistic passion

malaika; nahnu nuqadisuka wa nuqadisu lak (nasiha wa insafi wa tafadul)
in egypt, a syeikh pulling donkey with him on him, lots of people stop him and say salam and tafadul
al-quds: the One is beyond any possibility of having a fault. Taqdis - recognising His Qudus
Subbuhul qudus - tasbih wa tafdil - after witir, time angle change

'if you want to defeat 70 syaitan, give sadaqah'
wa nafsi wa ma zakaha, qad aflaha man zakaha: by giving zakat.. giving from who you are to the one that Allah asks us to. Zakat 1) compulsory 2) not compulsory - smile, cooking for family.. this will overcome nafs

subuhul qudus - du'a during sujud in adzkar

Habib Ahmad asked his grandson to send a scarf to Habib Muhammad bin Alwi AlMaliki 'intifal amr'. Habib Muhamad almaliki gave everything in his bag and a book

no mu'min read basmala except that the land will make tasbih with him

Abu Uraida, 'before you start your wudhu, say Basmala, angle will write a lot of hasanaat until you finish your wudu'.

BAsmala is the key to Qur'an - we need the mercy of Allah for every state Ar Rahman: Only for Allah, 1 Rahmah
Ar Rahim: all in the world, 100 Rahmah, when not been asked, for repentance

Basmala have 19 letters, each letter will protect from the 19 angles guarding the Hellfire (Ibnu Kathir)

Basmala have 4 words; with these words Allah will forgive 4 types of sins: day, night, secretly and openly

سَتْرُ مَا بَيْنَ أَعْيُنِ الجِنِّ وَعَوْرَاتِ بَنِي آدَمَ: إِذَا دَخَلَ أَحَدُهُمُ الخَلَاءَ، أَنْ يَقُولَ: بِسْمِ اللَّهِ

Basmala protect from the look of Jinn, on the authority of Sayidina Ali (HR Tarmidzi 606)


Lawh-al Mahfooz ('preserved plate', tablet of God's decrees preserved to the end of time) and qalem (the pen which Allah has pre-recorded the actions of men) are the first things that Allah Ta'ala created. He (Jalla Jalaluh) ordered to qalem (pen) and qalem wrote everything that will happen untill the Day of Judgement. “Bismi-llahi r-rahmani r-rahim” is the first that qalem wrote on the Lawn-al Mahfooz (Preseved Plate). Allah Ta'ala rendered basmalah security for the creatures -as long as they continue to recite-. Those who are in the seven layers of the heavens also recite basmala. When basmalah was revelaed to Hadrat/Prophet Adam (a.s.), he said “My descendants are secured from punishment as long as they continue to recite basmalah.”
Afterwards, basmalah was revealed to Hadrat Ibrahim (a.s.). When Nimrod put him on the catapult, he recited basmalah, Allah Ta'ala rendered the heat of the fire cool and safe for him.
Afterwards, basmalah was revealed to Hadrat Musa (a.s.). Hadrat Musa destoreyed Pharaoh and the magicians with basmalah. Afterwards, basmalah was revealed to Hadrat Sulaiman (a.s.). Angles to him “O ye Sulaiman, today your kingdom is completed.”
When Allah Ta'ala revealed basmalah to Hadrat Sulaiman, He (JJ) commanded that “Announce to your people that whoever wants to hear Allah's ayah of safety shall come to Sulaiman.”
When all of them arrived, Hadrat Sulaiman climbed to the minbar and recited the ayah of safety: “Bismi-llahi r-rahmani r-rahim”. Everyone who heard this got relieved and said “We testify that you are the Rasul of Allah.” Anything to which Hadrat Sulaiman recites basmalah gets under the control of Sulaiman (a.s.) and Prophet Sulaiman prevailed over other nations with basmalah.
Basmalah was revealed to Hadrat Isa (Jesus) (a.s) after Hadrat Sulaiman. Hadrat Isa and his followers got relieved with basmalah.
Allah Ta'ala commanded : “O Ye Isa (Jesus) do you know which ayah is revealed to you. “Bismi-llahi r-rahmani r-rahim” is the ayah of safety, recite that a lot in your every situation; basmalah shall be at the beginning of your reading and your salah.
Whoever continues to recite it before the salah and before reading something, the angels of Munkar wa Nakir can not get him frightened, his death will be easy, his grave will not squeeze him, he reaches to the rahmah of Allah.
His grave gets nur (divine light), I (JJ) will have wake up from his grave in the day judgment with his face brightened. His balance of the good deeds in the Day of Judgment (Miizaan) will be heavier, I will complete him on the Bridge of Sirat with nour; thus he enters to the Jannah. He is called as 'You reached to saadat and magfirat (happiness and forgiveness).”
Hadrat Isa(a.s) asked “Does this only belong to me ya Rabb?”

Allah Ta'ala commanded, “It belongs to the ummah of Ahmad (alaihissalaam) after you.”

Imam Qurtubi: basmala is special to the Ummah as it stays in the AlQur'an

Above are the intention for studying from Imam Abdullah Al-Haddad (RahimuLlah) translated as: All praise to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. And salutations and greetings upon our master Muhammad and upon his family and companions. I intend to study and teach, take and give a reminder, take and give benefit, take and give advantage, to encourage the holding fast to the book of Allah and the way of his messenger, and calling to guidance and directing towards good hoping for the countenance of Allah and His pleasure, proximity and reward, transcendent is He.
