▶️ The Day of Aashura
By Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel (RA)
Allah سبحانه و تعالى is Forgiving and Loving and has given us this blessed day of Aashura, so that we repent and make changes in our lives. If we do, then Allah is willing to accept us. Allah does not want us to go into Jahannum; He wants to see us enter Jannah. Allah forgave a nation on this Mubarak Day of Aashura; so we should maximise on the opportunity with abundant Istighfaar and Taubah.
The Day of Aashura is not a day to engage in sins. It should be a day free of sins. Completely free. And our entire lives should then become the same.
Experience of the Ahlullah
Whilst the following is not a Hadeeth, it is the experiences of the Mashaa’ik and Ahlullah …and we limit it to that. We do not say that it is Qur`aan and Hadeeth, but we can draw benefit from the good and wise counsel of the Mashaa`ik:
If a person makes up his mind, is sincere and is determined, and commences some good deed on the Day of Aashura or brings about a change in his life for the better, giving up his bad habits and weaknesses, then Insha-Allah, this will be the medium of Taufeeq to continue in that line of righteousness.
It may be that the person has a drug addiction or porn addiction or gambling addiction – but he makes up his mind that on this day of the 10th of Muharram, he will restrain himself, give it up, and makes Dua that Allah سبحانه و تعالى makes this a means of total change, then Insha-Allah, through the Barakah of Aashura, he will maintain Istiqaamat … so long as he keeps far away from those avenues and venues of sins, and distances himself from company that will take him back to sins.
So many people gave up some bad habit on the 10th of Muharram and الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ , they did not return to it. They were sincere in their Taubah. They cried and teared before Allah and asked for courage and himmat. Allah assisted them in giving up their sins.
Allah is waiting for us to turn to Him. آمين 🤲🏻 #madinahgirlsreminders
