Understanding The Virtues Of The Month of Rejab

  • We are now in the month of Rejab, the seventh month in the Islamic calendar. Rejab is one of the months of Ashhurul Hurum, the months where the Arabs during the time of Rasulullah s.a.w. were prohibited from going to war.
  • We are encouraged to soften our hearts and purify our souls from feelings of anger, hatred, revenge and other diseases of the heart that would have an affect on our spiritual health and the well-being of our akhlak (character), especially in this blessed month of Rejab.
  • Hence, Allah’s command to prevent ourselves from being embroiled in enmity, hatred, hostility, vengeful acts and rows during Rejab somewhat signifies a reminder to us to develop spiritual serenity before the arrival of Ramadan. With a calm heart, insyaAllah we will be able to focus and better devote ourselves to acts of worship during Syaaban and eventually, reach the peak in Ramadan.

Islam – A Religion That Offers Solutions

  • The wisdom of Rasulullah s.a.w. in overcoming issues that his facing is to correctly identify the issue itself. We need to be able to distinguish between the main issue from things which are secondary in nature.
  • After identifying the main issue, the next step is to identify its cause. It is an important process that will enable us to find the best solution in the next step.
  • Indeed, that is the lesson that we should learn from the example of the leadership of Rasulullah s.a.w. We need to be a community that has the will and ability to solve problems and provide solutions for issues.

Understanding Wisdom In Practicing The Religion

  • Throughout the life of our beloved messenger, Prophet Muhammad s.a.w., one trait that was never separated from him was his wisdom.
  • When Rasulullah practiced Islam, taught others and called upon others to embrace the religion by giving them advice, he did all that with wisdom.
  • Wisdom, along with Allah’s will, is the key to touching the hearts of our family and friends, and to motivate them to be more inclined toward the path of goodness and to boost their love for the religion of Allah and the teachings of His messenger.

The Akhlak of a Learned Person: Humility/Tawadhu’

The more knowledge we gain, the more it should make us grateful to Allah s.w.t. for the gift of knowledge that He has bestowed upon us. The more knowledge we gain, the more we should reflect humility, or tawadhu’, towards others.

   

This lack of adab (good manners) in seeking knowledge can lead to fanaticism (ta’assub), segregation and cliques within the Ummah, eventually leading to further disunity.

As a true seeker of knowledge with a deep sense of love for knowledge, we need to realise that seeking knowledge is a long and arduous journey. In seeking knowledge we need to constantly be in a state of worship to Allah. Only then will we be guided to cleanse our hearts from mazmumah, or ugly traits such as pride, arrogance and takabbur.

The Importance Of Being Guided By A Teacher In Seeking Religious Knowledge. [20 February 2015]

Acquiring true, authentic Islamic knowledge requires a qualified teacher. The necessity of an educator and the educator’s role to guide a person on the path to attain Allah’s pleasure is pivotal. Hence, although Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. was given the title “the educator of all educators”, Allah still sent the angel Jibril a.s. to teach the Prophet about Islam.
