Fruits of Disobedience

This was very well understood by the Sahabah (Radiallahu anhum). Hence obedience to Allah Ta'ala was second nature to them. Success was with them and in all ways were they helped. And whenever there were any faults on their part they suffered according to their status.

The happenings at the Battle of Uhud is well-known. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) placed some men at a strategic spot with the express command that they do not move from there at all costs, whether they overcame the enemy or were overcome.

It so happened that the Muslims were winning the battle. When they had practically defeated the enemy, many of those men who were strategically placed reasoned that now the battle has for all intents and purposes been won. They thus left their positions.

This gave the opportunity for Khalid bin Walid, a commander of the enemy at that time, to come through that gap and attack the Muslims from the rear. The ensuing results were quite disastrous for the Muslims.

Then there is the story of the battle of Hunain. Because the Muslims were many in number compared to the enemy, some Muslims were quite proud of their numbers. The result was that the Muslims had to suffer distress and difficulty. In the Qur'an, Allah refers to this incident:

“Indeed Allah has given you victory in many battles and on the Day of Hunain when you prided yourself in your numbers. But it availed you not, and the earth with all its vastness, became narrowed for you. And then you turned your backs and fled.” (9. 25)

MAJLIS: Mufti RadhaulHaq Shb DB

Hazrat Mufti Sahib DB weekly Islahi Majlis will resume tomorrow morning at the Darul Uloom Insha-Allah. The Majlis will begin at 7:00am.


Imamul Mufassir Moulana Ahmed Ali Lahori (R.A.) once said:

Kisi haq parast jamat ka batil parasti ka pehla qadam ye he ki apne alawa dusri haq parast jamato ko nazar andaz kare, aur itna nazar andaz kare ki apni baqa unki fana me samje

(The first step of the deviation of a group upholding the truth is that they show disregard to other upholders of the truth, and this is done to such an extant that they regard their self existence dependent on the extinction of others)

Moulana Ahmed Laat Sahib DB
