Urs of Hz Abu Yusuf Chishty (R.A) 1440 Hijri -2018



 
This Urs  is on 4th Rabi’ al Thani/ Rabi ul Akhir 1440H
This is approx on, Wednesday 12th December 2018 (Depending on Lunar date of your country).
.
Khwaja Abu Yusuf al-Chishty (R.A) was one of the great Persian saints of Afghanistan. The level of his marifah and love for Allah is rare even among the saints. Khwaja Abu Yusuf (R.A)  was the son of the sister of Khwaja Abu Mohammed (R.A). His mother was waliayah of great sanctity who was so engrossed in the remembrance of Allah that she refused to get married until instructed to do so by divine inspiration. As Khwaja Abu Mohammed (R.A) had no children, he took Khawaja Abu Yusuf into his own care and gave him all the benefits of his spiritual learning.
Once, seeking to test his uncle’s knowledge, he asked him a question. Hazrat Khwaja Abu Mohammed gave him fully seven hundred answers. Humbled by this oceanic knowledge, Khwaja Abu Yusuf became his murid. His murshid made him recite his name (Ya Abu Mohammed!) seven times looking towards the heavens and seven times facing the earth. Thereafter, he taught him the ism al-azam, upon which the mysteries of the Unseen became known to him.
Hazrath Abu Yusuf (R.A) used to spend his time in seclusion and mujahadahs , frequenting the mazars of great saints such as Hazrat Abu Ishaq Chishty (R.A). It is said that once he became slightly lax with his ibadah (Prayers) and out of penance did not drink water for twenty years.
He remained in the company of his murshid for a period of forty years before attaining Khilafat. His shaykh passed the ijaza with these words:

“Oh Nasir ad-Din (his title)! You have donned the garb of the ethics. You should consider yourself to be the lowliest of people, and see everybody else as greater than you. Always love and respect the poor and downtrodden; because for us, showing love for the poor is showing love for the King of Madinah, Rasulullah swm.”

As Khwaja Abu Yusuf’s fame spread, he received seekers of knowledge from all over the Islamic world. The muridin and khulafah of the order of Khwaja Junaid Baghdadi used to pay him regular visits, and join in him in gatherings of dhikr and Sama. One of his major khulaffah was the revered Hanbali jurist and Sufi Abdullah al-Ansari.
One day he came across some people building a masjid. However, they had miscalculated, with the result that the roof was shorter than the enclosed area and would not fit.
Such was Khwaja Abu Yusuf’s (R.A) karamah that he climbed the wall of the building, recited bismillah, and pulled the roof into place himself. Miraculously, it suddenly became the correct size. Khwaja Abu Yusuf Chishty attained unity in 459 AH, although opinions vary regarding the month of his wisal. His shrine is in the village of Chisht.

“Hazrat Abu Yousaf Chishty (RA),
My ship is caught in a storm,
And at every moment is violently rocked;
It is receiving not help at all!
Salutations to you, our own Abu Yusuf Chishty!
Do hasten my ship towards safety”.



Urs of Khawaja Qutub-ud-din Bakhtiyar Kaki Rehmatullah-alaihi-1440 Hijri (2018)

Approx :Friday 23rd November 2018

On 14th Rabi-Al-Awwal 1440 Hijri
(Depending on Lunar date of your country).
Khawaja Qutub-ud-din Bakhtiyar Kaki Rehmatullah-alaihi was the chief Khalifa of Hazrat Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti. He was born in 1111AD or 569 Hijri at Aush in Iraq.
Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A) was a great devotee and mystic. He had no parallel in abandoning the world and facing poverty and hunger. He kept himself engrossed in the remembrance of Allah. Whenever someone came to him he would show his inability to continue any longer and slipped into the same state again.
Hazrat Khawaja Bakhtiyar Kaki (May mercy of Allah be upon him) was one and half year old that his father passed away. Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaki learned 15 chapters of the Holy Quraan from his mother and his mother arranged for him further education and training. Once he wanted to be a part of Mehfil e Samaa however was not allowed in as he seemed to be young in age and didn’t have a beard. Hazrat Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaki Ra. was very fond of Mehfil e Samaa so he rubbed his face and a beard appeared and he was let in. When Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaki was 4 years and 4 months of age he requested his mother that he wanted to study the Holy Quraan under a learned person. His Mother sent him along with a Slate and sweets to an Aalim in the locality. On the way he met a Divine personality, Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaaki offered Salaam and was asked as to where he was off to.      Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaki replied that his mother has sent him to the local Aalim to learn the Holy Quraan. The revered person asked Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaki to come along with him and he would be taught the Holy Quraan. He came to a mosque where he saw a few children learning the holy Quraan from Maulana Abu Hafz; he stood up as he noticed the revered person who told him to teach Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaki the holy Quraan. Later Maulana Abu Hafz disclosed to Khawaja Qutubuddeen Bakhtiyar Kaaki that the person who left him there was none other than Hazrat Khawaja Khizar Alaihisalaam.
When Hazrat Khawaja Mueen-ud-deen Chisti came to Isphahan he took oath of allegiance on his hands and got caliphate and khirqah (dress of a religious mendicant) from him. Thereafter his master asked him to go to India and stay there. Following this order he came to Delhi and stayed there. It was the period of Sultan Shamsuddin Altamash.

Urs of  Hazrat Bilal Habashi (R.A) 1440 Hijri -2018.

The Urs of  Hazrat Bilal Habashi (Radi Allahu anhu) in  Syria is on 20th Muharram 1440 Hijri.
This is approx Monday 1st October 2018   (Depending on the Lunar date of your country).
Hazrat Bilal (R.A) was a black African primarily belonging to the Western Arabia. He was born in Abyssinia, also known as Ethiopia in the 6th Century A.D. His father, Rabah was an Arab and his mother, Hamama was basically an Abyssinian. Both of his parents were in custody of a rich Qureyshi person in Makkah known as Umayyah ibn Khalaf ibn Safwan, thus he (R.A) grew up as an enslaved child. He had to go through a lot of difficulties in his acceptance of Islam being a slave at the hands of non believers.

He was usually identified as “Bilal al-Habashi” as he belonged to Ethiopia, also called “Habsh” at that time. He (R.A) was a tall man, with dark brown complexion and thick hair. Hazrat Bilal (R.A) attained the greatest status of being Sayyid al-Mu’azzineen (leader of the Mu’azzins) which shows that there is no room for discrimination in the Religion of Peace on the basis of any cast, color or creed etc. He (R.A) was loyal, much loved and one of the most devoted companions of the Holy Prophet ﷺ.

First Slave To Have Embraced Islam
Although Hazrat Bilal (R.A) was a bondservant, but he had great conscious and insight due to which he never liked the existing man-made religious beliefs and corrupt codes and morals of living in the entire Arabia. Therefore, with the arrival of Islam, it took him no time to know about its rightfulness. He (R.A) did not care about the probable tough times in terms of facing oppression and torment of the disbelievers and became the very first slave to believe in Allahand His Apostle ﷺ.
Bearing The Nastiest Sufferings Being An Early Muslim
The master of Hazrat Bilal (R.A), Ummayah was a strict non believer and follower of his religious thoughts. When the Messenger ﷺ of Allah announced about His Prophet Hood and called everyone to Islam, Ummayah was among the top Qureyshi Chiefs who readily rejected Him and were ready to abolish Muslims from the surface of the earth. When he came to know about Bilal al-Habashi having secretly accepted Islam, he tortured him (R.A) severely which is regarded as the worst kind of anguish inflicted upon the early Muslims in Makkah. The infidels tried all sorts of physical torture on him including making him on the burning sand and keeping him chained. They tried their best to revert him back to the age of darkness, but Hazrat Bilal (R.A) stood firm on his Islamic faith and used to respond by saying “There is none to be worshipped but Allah.” and Ahad, Ahad (Allah is One, Allah is One).
This shows the extraordinary level of persistence of Hazrat Bilal (R.A) on his religious belief and his reliance in Allah SWT.

Becoming A Free Muslim
After going through a series of pain and ordeal at the hands of his master and other Qureyshi non believers, Hazrat Bilal (R.A) finally got his freedom when Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (R.A) came to know about his condition and set him free from slavery after paying a considerable amount of money to his master. He was declared a free Muslims after that by Sayyindina Abu Bakr (R.A). Hence, Hazrat Bilal (R.A) set an extraordinary example of staying firm on the Islamic Conviction and bearing all kinds of torments in this cause.
Having An Honor Of Being the First Muezzin
Hazrat Bilal (R.A) had melodious and loud pitched voice. When, in the second year of Hijrah (Migration to Madina), the Call to Prayer was started by Rasulullah ﷺ on hearing the account of his companion`s dream about it, Bilal al-Habashi (R.A) was given privilege by the Holy Prophet ﷺ to become the very first Muezzin (Caller to Salah from Mosque) in the history of Islam due to his exceeding piety and love for Namaz. According to an authentic narration:

“Hadrat Bilaal (R.A) used to give the Fajr Adhaan from the roof of the house of a lady from the tribe of Banu Najjaar. Her home was joined to the Masjid. From the time of Sehri he used to sit on the roof waiting for the time of Fajr. When it was time to commence the Adhaan then he should stretch his limbs, and make the following Du’a after which he gave the Adhaan.
‘Oh Allah I praise you, and I desire that You become aid to the Quraysh to establish Your Deen’
 
The woman from whose roof he gave the Adhaan said that there was not a day that he did not mention this Du’a.” (Abu Dawud)

It shows that Hazrat Bilal (R.A) used to perform his duty of giving Adhan with great punctuality and also prayed to the Almighty Lord for making spreading of Islam in Makkah easy for Muslims. He (R.A) remained the leading Muezzin till the Holy Prophet ﷺ passed away. He did not perform Call to Salah regularly again because of his delivering of Adhan being liked to Rasulullah ﷺ and missing Him. Eventually, he (R.A) left Madina too due to same reason. He (R.A) gave Adhan once on the request of Second Caliph, Hazrat Umar (R.A) who had visited Damascus. Upon hearing this, Muslims rushed towards masjid before Fajr prayer in order to listen to Hazrat Bilal (R.A) giving Adhan once again. The whole congregation burst into tears on that day according to various narrations.
Criticism Over His Manner Of Adhan And Its Effects
The mode of speech of Bilah al-Habashi (R.A) was not normal, and his tongue could not pronounce the words same as others. When he (R.A) used to give Adhan (Call to Namaz), other Muslims passed judgments on him not being able to articulate the wordings of Adhan in the right way. Thus, on the occasion of one Fajar Salah, when he did not perform this religious act, the morning on that day would not prevail even after quite a time.
People went to the Messenger ﷺ of God to ask Him about this matter. The Angel Jibrael A.S (Gabriel) also came to Rasulullah ﷺ and told Him about Allah`s Dislike for people who criticized Hazrat Bilal (R.A) for Adhan. The Sun will not rise until Bilal al-Habashi (R.A) gave the Adhan. Thus, his call to prayer was even recognized highly up in the heavens and it shows how effective his mode of giving Adhan was!
Always Being With The Prophet 
Hazrat Bilal (R.A) spent his entire life in the true service of Islam and the Messenger ﷺ of Allah. He remained with Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ till He (PBUH) lived on earth. Wherever Rasulullah ﷺ visited, he (R.A) would accompany Him. When he would give Adhan, people would come to know that the Holy Prophet ﷺ had arrived in their area. He (R.A) learned and acquired nearly all the great Personality characteristics of the Apostle ﷺ of God by spending a lot of time with Him. He (R.A) was also given authority to control matters concerning helping the needy from whatever Rasulullah ﷺ had with Him. He also fought in all battles along with the Holy Prophet ﷺ and even continued doing it His passing away just for sake of upholding the name of Allah`s Religion.
Enduring Hunger And Having Immense Fear Of Allah SWT
Hazrat Bilal (R.A) used to go many days without eating enough food. He always remained grateful to the Almighty Lord for everything he had and never complained about lack of anything. He (R.A) also feared the Creator of the world of the worlds so much that he used to observe Soum (Fasting) occasionally.
According to one of the relations:

At one time Hadrat Bilal (R.A) presented himself in the company of beloved Prophet PBUH. It was morning and beloved Prophet PBUH was having meals. He (PBUH) told Bilal (R.A) to join him, who (R.A) mentioned to Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) that he was fasting. Beloved Prophet PBUH remarked, ‘We are eating our sustenance and the sustenance of Bilal (R.A) is preserved in Jannah.” Then He (PBUH) told Bilal (R.A) that the bones of a fasting person make Tasbeeh and the Angels request his forgiveness when something is eaten near him.” (Mishkat al-Masabih)

The above narration shows that Hazrat Bilal al-Habashi (R.A) had great fear of Allah SWT and used to fast to the extent that the Messenger ﷺ of God praised him for this quality and congratulated him of Paradise in his life.
In short, Hazrat Bilal (R.A) was a man of extraordinary qualities who devoted his entire life in the service of Islam. He became the earliest slave to have agreed to the Message of Allah and His Messenger ﷺ. He also happens to be the very first Muezzin in the history of Islam. He had strong faith in the Almighty Lord, and lived his life according to the true essence of the teachings of the Religion of Peace. Hazrat Bilal (R.A) was one of the most beloved companions of the Holy Prophet ﷺ. In his last days, he (R.A) fell ill while he was in Syria, and died at the age of sixty.

Qawwali on Hzrt Bilal Habshi (R.A)

Urs Hazrat Syed Imam Zain ul Abideen,Muharram 1440, H-2018

Urs sharif  is  on 18th Muharram 1440 Hirjri.  This is  approx  Saturday 29th September 2018 (Dependant on the Lunar date of your country).

Zain al-‘AbideenRadiAllahuTa’alaAnho
SayyidunaAbu al-Hasan Ali, Imam Zain al-‘Abideenis the fourth Imam and Shaykh of the Silsila Aaliyah Qaadiriyah Barakaatiyah Razviyah Nooriyah. He was one of the greatest Aabids of his era. Imam Zuhri (RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anho) says, (In my era) I have not seen any Quraysh more excellent than Imam Zain al-‘Abideen (RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anho).Hadrat Ibn Abbas (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho) used to look at Imam Zain al-‘Abideen (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anho) and refer to him as the Beloved of the Beloved.BIRTH:He was born on a Thursday the 5th ofShabaan38 Hijri in MadinahMunawwarah. [Masaalikas-Saalikeen, Vol. 1, Page 207]
NAME:
HadratImam Hussain kept most of his children names attached to the name Ali. This was due to his love for his fatherSayyidunaAli (RadiAllahuTa’alaAnho). He was thus also named Ali. He was also known as Abu Muhammad,Abul Hassan,Abul Qaasim and Abu Bakr. His titles wereSajjad, Zain al-‘Abideen, Sayyid ul Abideen, Zakkiand etc.
EDUCATION:
He spent two years with his grandfather Sayyiduna Ali (Radi ALLAHuTa’ala Anho), ten years with his uncle Sayyiduna Imam Hasan (Radi ALLAH uTa’ala Anho) and eleven years with his father,Hadrat Imam Hussain (Radi ALLAH uTa’ala Anho).
BLESSED MOTHER:
His mother was known as Umm-e-Wulad, and was also known as ShaharBanu RadiAllahuTa’alaAnha. She was very pious and Allah fearing.
HIS FEATURES:
He was the image of his grandfather Sayyiduna Ali (RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho). He was tan in complexion and not very tall. He had a full beard on which he used henna (mehndi).
PREDICTIONS OF HIS BIRTH:
HadratJaabir(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) says, I was in the blessed court of the Prophet (SallallahoAlaihiwaAalihiwaSallam) and Imam Hussain (RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) was in the blessed arms of the Prophet (SallallahoAlaihiwaAalihiwaSallam). The Prophet (SallallahoAlaihiwaAalihiwaSallam) said, OJaabir(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho)! A son shall be born to him, whose name shall be Ali. Then he will have a child, whose name shall be Muhammad (ImamBaaqir). OJaabir! If you meet with him, then you should pass my salaams to him.

HIS CHARACTER:
HadratImam Zain al-‘Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) was blessed with beautiful character, which he definitely inherited from his illustrious forefathers. He was very eloquent and very respectful. He was always willing to assist those in need. Umar Abu Nasr writes that Imam Zain al-‘Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) purchased various slaves, and then set them free. He would be kind even to those who were his personal enemies. Once he heard that there was a certain person who always spoke ill of him.HadratImam Zain al-‘Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) went to him and treated him with such respect and kindness, that he repented from his bad behaviour and affiliated himself to the great Imam. Many great poets have written numerousQasidasin praise of his kindness and generosity. [Masaalikas-Saalikeen, Vol. 1, Page 208]
HIS EXCELLENCE:
AbuHaazimsays, I have not seen any Jurist more exalted than him.
ZahbiandAiniyahhave said, We have not seen anyQuraishmore exalted than him.
HadratImamMaalik(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) says, He is from the Men of Excellence
Ibn AbiShaibasays, In Hadith, the most exalted chain of transmission is that which is narrated from Imam Zain al-‘Abideen, (RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) where he narrates from his father Imam Hussain (RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho). [Masaalikas-Saalikeen]
HadratImam Zain al-‘Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) was always prepared to sacrifice everything he had for Islam. He sacrificed all his wealth twice for Islam. He was a very generous person. He used to discreetly send money to the poor people living in MadinahShareefand none of them knew that the money was coming from him. The only time this became known to them, was after hiswisaal. [Tarikhal-Khulafa]
HIS PATIENCE :
He was a person with great patience. After the Battle of Karbala, HE was marched to Damascus in chains and in the time of Abdul Malik bin Marwan , he was arrested and chained. He was then forced to walk from Madinah to Syria in chains. With all this, he never complained or said one word about his condition in the Court of Allah . He instead remained patient and madeShukr(thanked Allah ) on every step. Imam Zain al-‘Abideen’smost loyal studentSayyidunaImamZuhricould not bear to see the Imam in this condition, so he went to Abdul Malik binMarwaan, and had the great Imam released. He then took him back to Madinah Shareef with great respect. [Khazinatal-Asfiyah, Vol.1, Page 31/32]
HadratImam Zain al-‘Abideenhad a very soft heart and always thought of the sacrifice that was given by his Father Imam Hussain and all the other Martyrs on the plains of Karbala.
Once, he was walking in the blessed streets of Madinah Munawwarah, when he saw a person placing a goat on the ground, and was sharpening the knife before making the animal zibah. On seeing this, he became very saddened and thought of the martyrdom of his father. He then began to weep bitterly and asked the man, “My dear Brother! Did you give the goat some food and water ornot?”Theman replied that he had fed and given water to the goat for the past three days and had also fed it water just before laying in down. On hearing this,HadratImam Zain al-‘Abideen let out a sigh of pain and said, “It is sad, that the people ofKufadid not even care for him like (you care for) the goat. They starved him for three days and nights and then martyred him in this state.” [Masaalikas-Saalikeen]
He used to perform one thousandrakaatsofnafilsalaahevery night. One night whilst he was performing hisnafils, his house caught on fire. The people were rushing around trying to put of the fire, but he continued his Namaaz with total sincerity. After he completed hissalaah, the people told him that his house had caught on fire and yet he continued reading his salaat (Namaaz) without any showing any sign of panic. He said, “You were trying to extinguish this fire, and I was trying to extinguish the fire of the hereafter.”[Khazinatal-Asfiyah, Vol.1, Page 31]
A person once swore at Imam Zain al-Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) and made slanderous remarks to him.
In response, Imam Zain al-Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) said to him: ‘If the attributes, you accuse me of, are found in me then I repent to AllahAzzawajal and ask for forgiveness. If the attributes are not found in me then on your behalf I ask AllahAzzawajalfor forgiveness and repentance.’
The person saw Imam Zain al-Abideen’s patience and was overwhelmed by it. He stood up, kissed Imam Zain al-Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) on the forehead and said: ‘May my soul be sacrificed for you! Whatever I accused you of was wrong. I seek forgiveness from you and I request you to pray to Allah Azzawajal for the acceptance of my repentance.’
Imam Zain al-Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) agreed to pray to Allah Azzawajal on his behalf.
HIS IBAADAT:
After theshahaadatof his blessed father Imam Hussain (RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho), he completely divorced himself from the materialistic world. He spent all his time in the remembrance of Allah. He would pass his days and nights thinking of the tragedy of Karbala and weeping. When Hadrat Imam Zain al-‘Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) used to sit down to perform wudhu, then his face used to become pale, and when he stood in Namaaz, then his complexion would change to such an extent, that it would be difficult to recognise him. The people would ask, O Beloved of the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihiwa Aalihi waSallam)! What has happened to you?and he said, O People! Namaaz is a time when you are present in the Court of Allah. Who is so naive as to smile and look happy, when he is standing before his Creator. [Awaarifal-Ma’arif, Page 475]
He used to perform one thousand rakaats of nafil salaah every night. One night whilst he was performing his nafils, his house caught on fire. The people were rushing around trying to put of the fire, but he continued his Namaaz with total sincerity. After he completed hissalaah, the people told him that his house had caught on fire and yet he continued reading his Namaaz without any showing any sign of panic. He said, You were trying to extinguish this fire, and I was trying to extinguish the fire of the hereafter. [Khazinatal-Asfiyah, Vol.1, Page 31]
ImamTalhaShafi’i(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) writes that once shaitaan appeared in the form of a snake whist the Imam was in Salaah. He caught the toe of Hadrat Imam Zain al-‘Abideenin his mouth, but the Imam did not even move or show sign of discomfort. After some time, he became disillusioned and stood a distance away from the Imam. Then, a voice was heard thrice, saying the following words, You are the Jewel of the Worshipper, You are the Chief of those who prostrate (to Allah).
HIS FEAR FOR ALLAH:
He was a personality who truly feared Allah. His heart flowed with the fear of Allah. Once during Hajj, he tied his Ehraam but did not say theLabbaik. The people asked him the reason for this, and he said, I fear the I will say Labbaikand Allah will say, I do not accept your presence (Hajj). The people then told him that his Ehraam would not be proper if he did not say Labbaik. He then said Labbaik, and began to tremble in the fear of Allah until he fell off his camel and became unconscious. This continued throughout the Hajj, every time that he saidLabbaik. [Khazinatal-Asfiyah]
RECITATION OF THE HOLY QUR’AN:
Hadrat Imam Jaafar Saadiq(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) says, When my grandfather,Hadrat Imam Zain al-‘Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) used to recite the Quran, then the beauty of his recitation attracted the people towards him and all those listening to him would become so overwhelmed with the fear of Allah, that one did not know the condition of the other.

RETURN FROM THE BATTLE OF KARBALA:
When Imam Zain al-‘Abideenwas returning to Madinah after the Battle of Karbala, he said a few stanzas. A few stanzas are being presented for blessing.
“O Winds! If someday you pass by the sacred land, then pass my salaams
before theRawdaal-Aqdaswhere the most exaltedNabirests
The Sadness of separation from Madinah feels
like a sword stuck deep into my liver
How fortunate are the people of that city in
which is the Exalted and Beloved Prophet 
O RahmatulilAalameen! Assist Zain al-‘Abideen. 
Who is standing alone and in difficulty amongst the tyrants.”
Once a person asked Imam Zain al-‘Abideen about who will be looked upon as pious and good on the last day and he said, That person, who when he is happy, his happiness does not drive him towards wrong and that person, when he is angry, then his anger does not remove him from what is right.”
In other words, when you are happy, you should not let your happiness take you towards bad deeds and when you are angry, then you should not allow your anger to blind you from that which is right. [Masaalikas-Saalikeen]

RESPECT FOR THE KHULAFA:
Once some people from Iraq, came to visit Imam Zain al-‘Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho). During their visit, they began to say disrespectful words concerningHadratAbu Bakr,HadratUmar andHadratUthman(RidwanullahiTa’aalAlaihimAjma’een).
When they had completed saying what they wished to, He said, Tell me, are you from amongst the firstMuhajireen, concerning whom Almighty Allah says, “Those who were driven out from their homes and their possessions seeking the grace of Allah and His Pleasure, and helping Allah and His Messenger. They are the truthful.” [SurahHashrverse 8]
They replied in the negative, by saying that the verse did not refer to them.Hadrat Imam Zain al-‘Abideen(RadiALLAHuTa’alaAnho) then asked if they were from amongst theAnsaar, concerning whom Almighty Allah says in the Quran, And those who had established their homes in this city, with faith, from inception, They, (who) show love to those, who migrated towards them, and who find no need in their hearts, for that which has been left, and they give preference to them over their lives, even though they are in great need.[SurahHashrverse 9]
Again, they answered in the negative. He then said, I swear, that you are not even worthy of this verse of the Quran wherein Allah says, And those who came after them say, O Allah! Pardon us and our brothers, who brought faith before us, And keep not in our hearts hostility towards those withImaan. O Our Lord, Verily you are most Compassionate, Most Merciful.
After saying this, he asked them to leave his presence. In other words, he showed them that they were not from amongst theMuhajireen, or theAnsaar, or even from amongst the believers. He therefore shunned them for being disrespectful to the Khulafa-e-Thalaasa.
