The Beauty of The Beloved
By: Rukhsana Bashir - Nelson
What to speak of the beauty of Allah, what to speak of its countless beauties. No words, actions, thoughts or even my life, which cannot even be compared to the soil, can ever justify the beauty of the beloved. Sitting down now and writing about someone I am not worthy to even think about for a split second makes me want to stop.
Allah Most Merciful ever so Caring blessed us with His Beloved Messenger Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam, after this blessing His beloved people the Awliya Allah and after many years in 1951 He blessed us with the presence of someone who words cannot justify. A model, beauty from who many peoples’ lives changed and keep changing as they take each of their blessed footsteps forward. In moments of sorrow and pain their caring words, in moments of sadness their blessed smile and humour, in moments of loneliness their blessed company in moments of happiness their countless prayers, in moments of success their countless congratulations and their absence just unbearable.
When you do something against the Shariah they guide you through their blessed smile and forgive you, when you do something to please Allah and His Beloved Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam they praise you and carry on praying for you. Their way of motivating the Ummah not even one person till today has ever understood. The amount of literature which they have written not even one person can ever compile even if he lived for thousands of years as such quality there is nowhere to be found. The blessing within their enormous work is countless. A dissertation which will take us weeks or shall I say months will take them a couple of minutes time. Making a decision which requires a number of people for us will take them a split of a second without any help needed.
In the eyes of the world they are known to be the richest person existing when in fact their way of living is just the way of the Beloved Messenger Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam. If you knew just a few pages from the book of their blessed life tears will only flow, it will make you think of what you are doing in today’s society and you will certainly regret any wrong word you have said about them. Their struggle just to serve the Beloved of Allah Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam just to spread the love amongst the Ummah, they have taken to such an extent. No matter what someone will say it will not affect them, they will carry on striving to the extent they will put their own life at risk.
Their mission is one and only which is to serve and seek the pleasure of Allah and His Beloved Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam, to spread Their love and to revive the true message of Islam once again just the way it was at the time of the Prophet Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam. Today someone can point a gun towards them and they will not give in, instead they will become even stronger and spread more love for the Deen. They will not care how they personally feel or how bad their health has worsened but will be concerned if a moment without the remembrance of Allah is spent. If the Beloved of Allah Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam is displeased because of the state of His Ummah or anything alike it will affect them and displease them too. However the Beloved of Allah Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam is feeling that is how they will feel.
Their caring nature amongst others is unimaginable and their love is tremendous. Just for the betterment of us they started the blessed mission of Minhaj-ul-Qur’an International, the mission of the Beloved Messenger Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam and through it for over 25 years now have been spreading the love of Allah the Almighty and His Beloved Messenger Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam throughout the world, reaching nearly each and every corner of this world leaving a land untouchable.
When you look at the blessed face of the beloved it makes you think deeply and makes you want to weep to the extent of your last breath. As through staring at their blessed face with eyes which are not even worthy to see such beauty you see the way of the true life, the way the Beloved Messenger of Allah Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam lived and the way our Creator Most Merciful wants us to live through it. You see the love, the happiness, and the peacefulness makes you want to meet your Creator and His Beloved Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam. You realise the true purpose of this life, you realise its purpose of existence and you will receive the answers to each and every question which is in your mind. If it’s not answered physically they are certainly answered spiritually without a doubt.
You can be the worst person existing in this world and you could have committed the worst sins of this world but once you take a step towards this beauty which Allah has sent to us you will be purified and all you’ll seek there after is forgiveness from your Creator. As this beauty is one of the beautiful very rare flowers of the Messenger of Allah Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam; it is the flower of flowers. What more to say of such a beauty which has left us speechless.
It is just enormously amazing what Allah Greatest of all has created, something which the heart and mind cannot comprehend, just amazing. You can think for days, weeks, months and years and still will not be able to clarify the blessings of Allah. It is something which is out of the control of a normal human being. Through this beauty this is what this useless being sees. I myself cannot justify this person even to the last letter and even these English words themselves cannot do any justice even if tried. It can only be seen by a persons owns eyes and experience. If someone described to you the beauty of something which you had never seen before for example the beauty of a rose, you would not understand the way it looked or how it smelt until you saw it and smelt it yourself. Now this beauty as mentioned above is the flower of flowers, the rest I will leave to your imagination.
When non-Muslims see/hear this beauty of the beloved they want to revert, they want to taste that wine of love and when you meet the beloved’s true followers only amazement is seen from them. Every single thing they do, say and work towards they always try to make sure it is just the way of the beloved, many I have seen myself. This just reminds me the time of the Holy Prophet Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam, what He did, taught, the way He ate, slept, sat, it is what the blessed companions tried to follow, to the extent they would give up their lives.
Seeing the beauty of the beloved and the surrounding just takes you back to the time of the beloved Holy Prophet Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam and His companions…subhan’Allah!!!... What more can someone say, no words. The beauty of the beloved is indeed the beauty of the beloved Messenger Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam and the beauty of the beloved Messenger Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam is indeed the beauty of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. You want to experience and see the true beauty of Islam and all that is within it then just take one glance at the beauty of the beloved, you will certainly find it.
My useless words are not much of interest and one cannot understand much from them. If you are wondering of whose beauty I am speaking of through this, then it is the beauty of the one and only which I have seen in my entire life as long as I have lived and that is the beauty of the greatest revivalist existing in this world, greatest speaker, thinker, lecturer, author, physical and spiritual teacher, lawyer, ambassador, carer, father, brother the greatest mujadid His Eminence Sayyedi Huzoor Shaykh-ul-Islam Professor Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri. The founder of the blessed mission of Minhaj-ul-Qur’an International, who has held countless positions and has received countless achievements; most of all the love and countless blessings of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and His Beloved Messenger Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam. Many lives have changed just by seeing the beauty of Shaykh-ul-Islam and keep changing every day in some place throughout this world.
May Allah Most Kind Most Merciful through the intercession of His Beloved Messenger Salallahu alayhi wa’sallam grant Shaykh-ul-Islam a long prosperous life full of happiness and bless them even more on this blessed day giving us the tofeeq to follow onto their blessed footsteps through their fayz. Ameen!
