Some Advice From Maulana Muhammad Yusuf (ra)

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

These are some words said by Maulana Muhammad Yusuf (ra) while addressing the students of a religious institute on the occasion of the completion of the Sahih al Bukhari. He said:

Brothers! You completed the Sahih of Bukhari. Knowledge is gained. Now, on this knowledge, the effort to gain three objectives is necessary.

First, belief inside our self according to this knowledge.

Secondly, practice according to this knowledge.

Thirdly, spreading this belief and this practice in the world.

In the early period of Islam, when an effort was made on all these three aspects of knowledge which was brought by the Prophet Muhammad (saw), the false of that time (i.e. Rome and Persia), which was running on the worldly resources, turned into pieces.

In the future, Dajjal will show such great power that today's powers are nothing before that power. In that time, Imam Mahdi from the earth, and Prophet Isa (as) from the sky will come and will make an effort on this knowledge with the method of and in the manner of the Prophet Muhammad (saw). On this, Allah will ruin this power of Dajjal.

When in the past it has happened and it will happen in the future, then why we doubt its happening in the middle? All this can happen today if certain people make an effort on this knowledge in the way of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) and the Sahabah (ra).

The practices which have come out from the body of the Prophet (saw), Allah has made them more powerful than the atom. Allah has made each and every of his practices a means of bringing change in the world.

For example, Salat-ul-Istisqa (prayer to ask Allah for rain) is the means of bringing change to the state of the earth. Salat-ul-Khusoof and Salat-ul-Kusoof (prayers offered at the time of a lunar or solar eclipse) are for bringing change in the states of the sun and the moon. Dua and Salat-ul-Hajat (prayer offered in the hour of need) are for bringing change in all unfavourable circumstances, both individual and collective.

By the splitting of the moon into two parts on the Prophet's (saw) pointing of his index finger, we were told that the action which has come out of the body of the Prophet (saw) has power like this. This pointing of the finger was an action related to the nature; actions of Shariah are even more powerful.

Today, those who are in power are being asked by the people to implement our knowledge. I say that Quran and Ahadith have not come to beg from these people. The Quran has rather come to decide the existence or non-existence of these people. 

May Allah give us the ability to act upon all the correct teachings of Islam - Ameen!
