Owners of the Majlis


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The majlis belongs to the ones who are Called.  People who organise the congregational dzikr, or the Mawlid, sometimes imagine that they, as the hosts, own the ‘ibadah, and want to determine who is invited, and who is not.  Perhaps, the argument is that they provide the venue, the food, or the funds.  But then, they forget that whatever they have, is from Divine Generosity, and they are mere vessels of Divine Mercy.  This destroys their ‘ibadah, and causes separation from the Divine.  There cannot be two “Malik”.  The majlis belongs to the ones who are Called.
