Dua's from Quran
Piety in Personal Life
The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Live immaculately both
personal life and social life.” [Minhaaj us-Saaliheen]
When the shadow of
darkness would spread and everyone fell asleep, Imam Zain ul-Abideen
(rehimatullahu) the son of the Prophet’s grandson Hussain (radi Allahu anhu)
would get up. He put some food in a sack and carry it on his shoulders to the
houses of the poor, especially those who hesitated to beg. His original name was
Ali. “Zain ul-Abideen” (Ornament of the worshipers of Allah) was a title
conferred on him because of his consciousness of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).
Despite becoming rich through trade, he was humble and utilized his wealth as a
means to attain eternal success. His specialty was secret charity. From him,
many poor people of Medina used to receive food daily. Yet, they never found out
that it was Zain ul-Abideen (rehimatullahu) who gives them food until he passed
away and that anonymous man never came to them anymore. It was then that they
found out that their anonymous caretaker had been the Prophet’s grandson! When
Zain ul-Abideen was being given his funeral bath, a thick dark scar was seen on
his back. When people asked about it, someone revealed, “It is the scar from the
sacks of flour that Imam used to carry to the poor of Medina during the middle
of every night. With his demise, those poor lost their caretaker
There are two ways through which our moments of leisure can be made
valuable. The first is through self evaluation and introspection. A cautious
lifestyle in which one examines what one has said to others and desired, is the
best way to attain inner purification. Scrutiny of oneself at lonely moments
helps wash away the dirt that latches on during the course of life.
second way to make your moments of leisure valuable is through good deeds. When
nobody is around to know or applaud, we can perform good deeds purely for
Allah’s happiness, thinking about Him alone and not desiring anything from
anybody but Him.
What crosses our minds when we are alone? What is craved
and done then? In secluded moments, if our minds crave evil, they are obviously
in need of strong guidance. Fearfulness and devotion towards the Almighty is
more likely experienced in personal moments. Make lonely moments significant -
with good deeds, self evaluation and beneficial desires!
