AL-SABIL (The Way)

19Original–Tapestry  Al Sabil Shop19

00019

In Surah al-Isra or Bani Isra’il (17:84), Allah, Al-Khabir (The All Aware), in the previous ayats (verses) tells us that the Holy Qur’an is a Healing and Mercy to the believers and the unbelievers do not receive anything from it but loss. The Holy Qur’an is a cure for the greatest ailments - unbelief, hypocrisy, revolt and seductions. The unbelievers, when they are faced with the Truth, fight against it and increase in their rebellion, thus adding more loss to themselves. And since they do not obey Allah’s commandments and refrain from His prohibitions, each decree only adds to their crimes and offences. When Allah, the Bestower, grants favours and blessings on people, some turn away from Him, not thanking Him, and proudly withdraw and distance and alienate themselves from Him and His worship, being self-centred and following their own desires and ego. When evil (calamities, hardships, sorrow, disease, catastrophes, poverty, as viewed by disbelievers) touch them, they despair and become desperate and impatient.

Believers in Allah, the Compassionate, do not behave like that. In this ayat, He tells Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, to say that everyone acts according to their own character, manner and disposition, formed through their heredity, education, training and socialization. The believers receive Cures and Mercy from the Holy Qur’an, while the disbelievers, the oppressors, do not receive anything good, only more loss, from it. And our Lord knows who is best guided in the Way (Al-Sabil).

IBADAN (Worshippers)

37Original–Tapestry Ibadan Shop37 2

00037

In Surah Ali-Imran (3:79), Allah, Al-Azim (The Magnificent), earlier in this ayat, informs us that it is an impossibility for the Prophets and sinful for people who teach Allah’s Scripture to tell the people to be servants to them rather than to Allah. Instead believers say, “Be worshippers of the Rabb (Lord).” The Prophets, and people, say this because they teach and study Allah’s Words in the Holy Qur’an and have understood Allah’s Essence, Message and Ordinances. This ayat is letting us know that some people have not only altered the Words of Allah, but deviously and deceitfully instruct their followers to serve them instead. Allah makes it clear that a Prophet and Messenger could never do that so we can be confident that if someone comes with what they claim are the Words of Allah and tells us to serve and/or worship them, they are for sure an impostor and are following shaitan (satan). Every Prophet of Allah came with the same Message: be ibadan (worshippers) of Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, the Only Rabb. For example, Prophet Isa (Jesus) did not tell the people to worship him, astagfirullah (may Allah forgive us). Also, one of the aims of the Prophets is to educate people and train virtuous intelligent scholars who could also enlighten others with their knowledge.

AL-HABLULLAH (The Rope of Allah)

35OriginalTapestry Al Hablullah Shop35 2

In Surah Ali-Imran (3:103), Allah, Al-Baqi (The Infinite and Everlasting), tells us to hold firmly to Al-Hablullah (The Rope of Allah) all together and do not be divided. This rope is anything that connects us to Allah, such as tawhid (monotheism), the Holy Qur’an, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, or the Household of the Prophet, peace be upon them. Muslims are expected to take refuge in all these strongholds. We are barred from associating and allying with any power other than Allah, The All Powerful. We must not take the Jews and Christians as confidants. We should not surround ourselves with those who have allegiance to other than Allah and the Truth. Muslims must adhere to the principles and regulations established by our Lord. In this way, we will be united and organized into a powerful united single body. If we fail to hold firmly to Al-Hablullah, we run the risk of not only losing our faith in Allah, but we will definitely become divided and separated from our Sustainer and each other.

KALIMATAN TAYYIBATAN (A Good Word)

 33OriginalTapestry Kalimatan Tayyibatan Shop33 2

00033

In Surah Ibrahim (14:24-25), Allah, Al-Musawwir (The Shaper of Forms and Beauty), illustrates by way of a parable about kalimatan tayyibatan (a good word) comparing it to a good tree. A good tree has several outcomes: growing, bearing abundant fruit, casting shadows, sustaining itself and bearing fruit under all kinds of circumstances. A monotheistic person too is always growing, revealing signs of faith in speech and actions, continuously through the seasons of life, always calling others to Islam and persuading them to do what is right and stay away from what is wrong. Allah, in the Holy Qur’an, refers to other things that are tayyibah (good), such as tawhid (monotheism), iman (faith), correct and sound ideas, the Prophets and their companions and followers. Tawhid is inherently rooted and fixed in our fitrah (human nature), just as a tree is fixed by its roots in the ground. The tree of tawhid is fixed and its branches extend to Paradise. It is impossible to uproot or eradicate it. Only by the permission of the Lord can a tree survive and bear fruit and only by the permission of our Lord can we stay faithful and speak kalimatan tayyibatan and call others to the Way of Allah.

This ayat orders everyone, including instructors, professors and religious scholars, to be well-equipped with various methods to be successful when addressing different audiences. Good advice is successful when the giver acts and practices according to what they say and they do not provoke bad feelings through insults. We are told to invite others to Al-Sabil Rabbika (The Way of your Lord) with wisdom, good advice and with the best and friendly words and manner. This will provide rational and reasonable insights and mental nourishment and calm emotions and spiritual enrichment for the listener. Especially when disputing or debating, we must maintain a friendly composure rather than a confrontational and argumentative one.

In Surah As-Isra (17:110), Allah, Al-Rahman (The Compassionate), commands Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, to tell the people to call upon Allah or call upon Al-Rahman (The Compassionate). Whatever Name of Allah you call upon, all of Al-Husna (The Most Beautiful and Best) Names belong to Allah. It is said that this ayat was revealed when Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, was praying at the Kaaba and saying “O Allah! O Al-Rahman!” Some people believed he was praying to two different gods and couldn’t understand why if he claimed to be a monotheist. Our Lord must have different names because Allah is the Source of all Perfections, Bounties and Goodness. It is rather more surprising that we call upon Allah by only One Name. While Allah is the Infinite and Possessor of all that is Good, we, too, must try to inculcate the Most Beautiful Names of Allah into ourselves by sincerely valuing them and implementing them into our daily lives. In other words, we must try to be compassionate, wise, generous, knowledgeable, loving and all the other Al-Husna Names of Allah. [Due to the sheer size of this tapestry, it has a higher price.]

In Surah Al-Baqarah (2:185), Allah, Al-Qabid (The Constrictor), earlier in this ayat and continuing from the previous two ayats, instructs us that we must fast in the month of Ramadhan. Then our Lord lets us know that only al-yusra (ease) is intended for us, not hardship and difficulty.  Sawm (fasting) is prescribed for us so we can guard against evil. However, we are exempted if sick or on a journey or elderly and unable or chronically ill or if a woman is menstruating or is nursing or pregnant if she fears it will harm herself or her child. Fasting is a long-time ordinance of the Prophets of Allah and their followers. Although fasting is a strict and limiting type of worship, people gain ease and tranquility, both spiritually and materially, through it. So not only has Allah granted ease by providing exemptions, we receive blessings and benefits by fasting and it indeed makes our life easier. This is because those who fast are able to rein in their passions, do without, be steadfast through deprivations and difficulties and expel darkness from their heart. In any case, Islamic legislation is not based upon hardship, as Allah, The Praised One, says: “He has chosen you and has not laid upon you any hardship in religion.” (Surah al-Hajj, 22:78)

Allah, Al-Mumeet (The Taker of Life), in the Qur'an, outlines seven guidelines of sincere, devout believers: awe of Allah’s Might and Power, doing righteous deeds, emigration from polytheism, disbelief and sin, patience, sincere devotion, total submission and fear of the Day of Judgment. Muslims are expected to fully submit to Allah’s Will, in all areas of life, including faith, worship, deeds, sacrifices, jihad (strive), resistance and perseverance.

AL-RAZZAQ (The Provider and Sustainer)

In Surah al-Talaq (65:2-3), Allah, Al-Razzaq (The Provider and Sustainer), lays out legislation regarding divorce. A husband and wife should either live together in a befitting fashion, with love, compassion and humane principles, or part with each other in a kind manner, free from controversies, quarrels, slander and transgression of rights. The same way that the marriage bond is established peacefully, separation should be by mutual understanding. This is because the man and woman may desire to marry again, but mistreatment at the time of separation and divorce, or during the marriage, may hamper them from considering remarriage or even if they wish to remarry they may be harmed, intellectually and/or emotionally, through the ill treatment they suffered.

Divorce is the most hated allowable thing in Allah’s eyes. It is a serious undertaking and Allah, Al-Adl (The Just), orders that it must be witnessed by two just witnesses. In these two ayats (verses), Allah promises that our Lord will make a way out for people who wish to divorce because they are unable to live together without breaking Allah’s commandments. If they have consciousness of Allah and are pious, they should not let issues of money, children, possessions, emotions, fear of the unknown or any other reason impede them from being truthful and fair in the divorce proceedings so that they will be provided deliverance from the marriage, its entanglement and any ensuing difficulties and obstacles. Not only that, but Allah, Al-Hamdulillah (All Praise be to Allah), will provide for them in ways they can never imagine and from where they do not expect. Everyone should trust in Allah and not fear the path of Truth as this will open the doors of happiness. Putting your trust in Allah and being satisfied with the Decrees is a good deed in our Lord's Sight. [This tapestry utilizes more complicated and time-consuming stitches, thus the higher price.]

WASWASA (Whisper)

23Original–Tapestry Waswasa Shop23 (3)

In Surah Qaf (50:16), Allah, Al-Muqtadir (The Exalted in Might and Perfect in Ability), tells us that certainly our Lord created people and knows what our self, our soul (nafs), whispers (tuwaswisu) to us, including unbefitting thoughts, repeated unfounded doubts and fears and irrational and evil thoughts. Sometimes it is Iblis, the shayatin (satans) or evil people who access and infiltrate our thoughts through our nafs al-ammarah (lower or animalistic, carnal soul). They use temptation, invitations, the manifestations of our desires - making them seem good and beautiful - false promises, encouragement of our far-fetched hopes and fear, especially of the future. Essentially, these are all irrational thinking which skews reality.

Because Allah, the Creator, made us, our Lord, therefore, knows us better than we know ourselves. Allah knows our inward and outward thoughts, speech, actions, qualities, beliefs, temptations, intentions, fears, doubts and worries. Allah also knows that the disbelievers’ denial of the Resurrection is due to their obeying lustful and satanic temptations, even though their innate natural disposition (fitrah) recognizes they came from Allah, Al-Awwal (The Perpetual First) and Al-Akhir (The Last, The Ultimate), and will return to our Lord. Allah is closer to us than our jugular vein, the one which takes the blood from the head, including the brain, back to the heart through the neck (jugular) to be reoxygenated. If the jugular vein is cut or damaged, we could die. By emphasizing the jugular vein, Allah, the All-Knowing, means our Lord controls our life and death more than our jugular vein does. It is Allah who keeps us alive and causes us to die. This Truth causes believers to account for their every thought, word and deed in order to have a responsible and honourable record, which Allah, Al-Wajid (The All-Perceiving Abundance), mentions in the next ayats (verses), on the Day of Judgement, inshallah (Allah willing).

In Surah al-Saff (61:8), Allah, Al-Nur (The Divine Light), makes it clear that the disbelievers want to extinguish our Lord's Light with their empty words and slander. But their efforts will never be successful. It is like trying to put out the sun by blowing on it. The enemies of Allah, Al-Darr (The Powerful Afflicter and Distresser), try many plots and strategies, such as mockery, lies, dissemination of evil and immorality, especially by targeting the youth, economic blockades, occupations, dividing up Muslim lands, political corruption, colonialism, murders and wars, throughout history to destroy Islam and Muslims. Islam will dominate the world and all ways of life, including all religions, because it is the Way of Guidance and Truth sent by Allah Alone. Even though the disbelievers detest it, Islam will prevail. Allah’s Light will be perfected and justice will reign when the Mahdi, may Allah hasten his arrival, appears. Subhanallah!

The root word of Allah’s command to stand firm, steadfast and upright (is’taqim) can be seen in other Words of our Lord, such as Qiyamat (Day of Resurrection), iqamah (establish), qiyam (stand), mustaqeem (straight) and al-qawma (the people). Allah, Al-Azim (The Magnificent), continues the ayat (verse) by telling the Prophet and us not to transgress from the Path of Islam and that our Lord sees everything we do. It is a severeayat with heavy duties. To be successful, we must be persistent, sincere, non-violent leaders and abstain from unruliness and sin. It has been reported that the Prophet, peace be upon him and his family, said that this surah (chapter) and Surah al-Waqi’ah caused him to age early.

In Surah Al-Muminun (23:61), Allah, Al-Matin (The Steadfast, The Firm) in the previous ayats, describes al-muminun (The Believers). They are in awe and cautious to fulfill religious obligations and refrain from sin out of fear and respect of Allah’s Grandeur and Kindness, sincerely believe in Allah’s signs, including the Holy Qur’an, do not associate partners with their Lord, give in charity with pure anxious hearts because they know they will return to Allah and fear they may not have adequately performed their obligations. Allah, The Most High, says that these people are those who hasten to the good and they are al-sabiquna (the foremost). Al-Sabiquna can be used as those who are the forerunners in a race or competition, those who are ahead and are relentlessly outstripping the others. The believers are, therefore, in a race, a race in doing good, back to Allah, our Creator, to Whom we will all return. Because we are fearful of Allah and believe with sincerity, it makes us hurry to perform good and righteous deeds. Hastening to do good comes from knowledge, faith, sincerity and charity with an apprehensive heart. And thus, we will receive all goodness, prosperity and Divine favours here and in the Hereafter.

The inviting call is what will give us life, a mental, intellectual, and spiritual life. The acceptance of the Prophet’s invitation is the same as the acceptance of Allah’s invitation. The real life lies in faith in Allah, The Majestic, and the performance of righteous deeds. To live otherwise is living a deadened existence. Allah tells us that He intervenes bayna (between) people and their hearts. This shows that Allah is aware and present everywhere, closer to us than our jugular vein and all bounties and successes belong to our Sustainer. All the activities of our soul and intellect are under Allah's Authority also. And so if we call upon Allah, in His Mercy, our Lord will intervene and cause our hearts to become pure, faithful and certain of Allah’s Majesty.

This gift includes sustenance directly from our Lord and the ability to discover, acquire and utilize the provisions needed for life. This means that each creature must also work for their sustenance.

They have no power over disasters and afflictions and will not be able to even save themselves from the Hellfire. Allah, our Lord and Master, will always protect and help al-mutaqina at all times.

In Surah Ali-Imran (3:92), Allah, Al-Muqit (The Nourisher), informs us that we will never attain righteousness and piety until we spend out of what we love. There are many qualities of a person who is pious, including, but not limited to, belief in Allah, The Most High, belief in the Day of Judgement, belief in the Prophets, helping the needy people,salat (prayer), saum (fasting), fulfilling promises, steadfastness and sadaqah (charity). It is fairly easy to give away materials and wealth that we don’t need and are extra. But it is much more difficult to give away what we love. Allah, The Most Glorious, lets us know that a true test of piety is when tunfiqu (you spend) from what you love. [This bookmark entailed minute stitches, thus the higher price.]

In Surah Yusuf (Joseph) (12:86), Prophet Yaqub (Jacob), peace be upon him, upon hearing that his son Benyamin (Benjamin) and his oldest son had not returned from Egypt, was overcome with the repressed and continuous grief of losing his son Prophet Yusuf (Joseph), peace be upon him, and the new sorrow (al-huz’ni) of losing Benyamin, which caused him to become blind. Prophet Yaqub, peace be upon him, resolved to be patient and declared that he only complains to Allah, Al-Sami (The All-Hearing), about his suffering and sorrow in the nighttime and in private. Believers in Allah only share their troubles and secrets with the Lord. They do not keep silent, exerting pressure on their heart and nerves, jeopardizing their health, nor do they cry and moan in front of others. Instead, they dialogue and discuss with Allah Alone, are patient and put their hope in our Lord's Mercy for the future and the Hereafter. Only disbelievers despair of Allah’s Mercy.

RIDWAN (Satisfaction, Contentment, Pleasure)

In Surah al-Duha (93:5), after two oaths to the morning’s glorious bright light and the night’s serenity and stillness, Allah, Al-Muqaddim (The Expeditor and Advancer), informs Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, that our Lord has not forsaken him nor is not displeased with him. This ayat (verse) was revealed when the Prophet was facing hardships, torment and taunts in Makkah because he had not received revelation for a while. Thesurah (chapter) gave the Prophet much relief, hope, optimism and strength when Allah revealed to him that soon the Lord of the Worlds will give him so abundantly that he will be content, satisfied and pleased (ridwan). Allah reminds the Prophet that surely the Hereafter is better than the present life, even though he has been granted Allah’s Help, Love and Blessings throughout, even as an orphan child, lost and wandering and in need. This ayat ensures the believing steadfast Muslims that we, too, will not be forsaken by Allah, the Loving, and we will also receive blessings with which we will be well-pleased because we can expect that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, will intercede with Allah for us, inshallah (Allah Willing).

In Surah Ibrahim (Abraham) (14:7), Allah, Al-Hasib (The Reckoner and Rewarder), promises, in this explicit ayat (verse) to increase our favours and blessings if we are thankful to our Lord for them. If you are given a favour, confess within your heart that it is a blessing from Allah and thank our Lord, with praise, and Allah will add to that favour by granting you more blessings. Giving thanks to Allah includes acknowledging all blessings are from our Lord, verbally saying Al-Hamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Alamin (All Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds) and showing gratitude by worshipping Allah, seeking only our Lord's satisfaction and pleasure, avoiding sin and working in the service of people. Really thanking Allah for the favours means not attributing the favours as originating from your own intelligence, wisdom, reasoning and your or other people’s effort, but confessing that whatever exists comes from Allah, the Greatest. It also means being content with what Allah has given you, as well as not using the blessings to commit sins. Rather, we must use Allah's favours in ways which please our Lord.

In Surah al-Baqarah (2:222), Allah, Al-Tawwab (The Guide to Repentance), tells us our Lord loves those who repent. When we repent, we turn from sin and regret our disobedience of the commandments of Allah, Subhanallah (Glory be to Allah), asking our Lord for forgiveness. We acknowledge we have disobeyed Allah, feel sorry about our action, make a firm decision to not repeat it in the future and make up for what we have done. Our repentance is called tawbah. Allah also loves those who purify themselves. Purification means not being polluted by sin and refraining from disobeying Allah, The Pure and Holy. Allah loves the people who refrain from sin, but is always Forgiving of those who repent, thus giving everyone hope. Our Lord guides us to repentance and ensures us that Al-Sabur (The Most Patient) is always Loving when we are repentant.
