To Avoid That Which Does Not Concern Us
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
The following is adapted from a swuhbah by Shaykh Muhammad Nazhim Adil al-Haqqani (q.s.) on 06th July 2010.
Day and night, Shaythan makes people occupy themselves with unreality. He makes them work on matters that are not their concern. These people are trying for something that is impossible. They should leave that. Shaythan’s work is not to make people try for something that is for them but to be occupied with nonsense. The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “The perfection of a man’s Islam is to leave what does not concern him.”
The understanding of this hadits is enough to change the whole Islamic world from bathil to haqq. If we understand and practice this hadits, the ummah of the Seal of Prophets (s.a.w.) will be like the stars in the sky.
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
(Allah) Most Gracious! It is He Who has Taught the Qur’an. He has Created man: He has Taught him speech (and intelligence) (Surah ar-Rahman:1-4)
This is one hadits that may save not only the Islamic world, but may save all humanity. And it is only one hadits. The Seal of Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “I was Given the most comprehensive of words.” There are two kinds of efforts in front of a mu’min. One of them is that which concerns them. The other is that does not concern them. But the nations of the world are running after that which does not concern them. May Allah (s.w.t.) Forgive us.
