‘We are all born with a “knowing pain in the soul,” which makes us seek elation. That need for happiness leads us in pursuit of worldly desires. But those are just diversions from the Greatest Giver of Joy.  Happiness, true happiness, will become possible with the realisation that our hearts were once perfect, but now hold a cavity that the pleasures of this world cannot fill. That ache, the pain that burdens our souls, will only be healed when we move closer to our Lord. It is He who our souls yearn for.  When you are in spiritual solidarity with your Lord, and distance yourself from the worldly, then do you come to know and heal your soul. Then do you embrace Him. His light nurtures us. It draws us forth from the darkness we inhabit without Him. With His guidance, we rise and greet the dawn. With His guidance, we find peace. Juma Mubarak’ Shaykh Tahir

‘Nothing is hidden from Allah. Neither the burdens of one’s soul, nor the burdens of one’s body are unknown to Him. Hold true to your love and trust in Allah throughout the trials of this dunya. Truly, you will see His grace and favour in plenty here and in the akhira . Be positive in every adversity for He is with those who are with Him.Allah shall endow you with the inner strength to endure the trials of this world, if only you have faith and devotion. With your faith and devotion, your inwards and outwards shall become pure, as you follow the Quran and the Holy Prophet . As your purity increases, you drift further in to the sea of spirituality and towards total peace in your soul. As we remember Allah, He remembers us. The pains of this world are temporary.  It is through Allah that we are healed and we are nourished in His light. Juma Mubarak’ Shaykh Tahir

‘May Allah grant all your wishes, bring a glow on your face, release you from hunger and save you from the difficulties of the grave!  We will speak up in your favour on the day of judgement.  But turn towards Allah throughout your life.  Ask yourself ‘which of the favours is it of your Lord that you deny?’Say ‘Oh Allah, be my only trust in every calamity; whenever my heart becomes weak and my actions feeble.  Put not that burden on me of which I have no strength to bear and put your mercy as a light and blessing in my life.  Give me the strength to face that day when we shall be before you.’  Do not submit to the anxiety and distress you feel as your Lord is always with you; closer to you than your jugular vein.

‘Complete reliance on Allah, in all the servant’s endeavours must be maintained with a sincere heart.  In the pursuing of his interests the servant must safeguard himself against anything that may be harmful.  Your heart must be at peace and satisfied with whatever Allah has commanded; know that it is what is most appropriate and most beneficial for you in this world.Yesterday your loved ones were with you and today they have gone. This should make you think; _whatever He decrees shall happen_ and you should turn towards him in sincerity.At evening don’t expect to live till morning and at morning don’t expect to live till evening.  ‘Take from your health for your sickness, and from your life for your death.’  Nothing you have truly belongs to you. Juma Mubarak’ Shaykh Tahir

15th Sha’ban

‘After Maghrib today it will be 15th of Shaban. On this great night your book will end and the new book will start. In the face all challenges that today mankind is facing, this night is given as a mercy from Allah. Being sincere and asking forgiveness and to change the whole world into better and take every kind of illness and disease away, He has given mankind this this night and then a day. When hearts and souls are crying for a solution here is one that is so great so merciful and one should follow and act upon the teaching of the Quran and holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ). A Night to do extra prayers, make du’a and fast the next day. O Allah, grant us a part of Your fear, that acts as a barrier between us and Your disobedience; Your obedience, that helps us achieve Your pleasure and the certainty that makes the miseries of the world seem insignificant. O Allah, make us enjoy our hearing, our sight, our strength as long as You Keep us alive. Make us take rise against those who oppress us, and help us against those who show animosity to us. Place not our miseries in our religion, and let not this world be our biggest concern, nor the extent of our knowledge. Ameen’ Shaykh Tahir

‘If a blessing descends upon you, then make it last by being grateful and if time becomes tough for you be grateful for what He has given you. Nothing is permanent in this world. When you wake up in the morning and safe in your home, in good health, and have enough provision for the day, it is as if you have all the good things of this world. When your heart and soul is in the love of Allah, feel the test in everything.When Allah loves a servant He tests him in every way. Your grief is only as long as your hope is short.  If you are hopeless then you see difficulties in every chance but if you are hopeful then you see chances in every difficulty. Juma Mubarak’ Shaykh Tahir

‘Remember Allah and He will remember you. Be grateful to Him and do not deny Him. Seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, Allah is with the patient. By purifying your soul, Allah, your Lord and Master, will not condemn you for mistakes and forgetfulness. Nor will He place too heavy a burden on your shoulders, but test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to the patient.  When you face great hardship, He will make ease and further great ease. You belong to Him and shall return to Him. If you want to be free of all suffering, hold fast to Him, and turn wholly to Him, and to no one else. Juma Mubarak’ Shaykh Tahir

‘Today the world is crying and the need of the soul for healing is so very apparent. When such a wave of destruction as we currently endure in the pandemic afflicts us, we are tested in every way.  Allah knows that this world is bound to make you go astray.  In order to save your souls from destruction, it is He who has sent down the Quran that has the power to heal; a complete cure for everything and every believer.  A cure for illnesses and a cure for diseases hearts and souls. When you read, listen or learn the Qur’an not only will all your problems disappear but also Qur’an holds the healing power for your body and soul. It will make your life better. It gives the sinner the opportunity to beg for Allah’s mercy, heal themselves, save themselves from ruin and gain paradise.  Do not lose hope. Trust in your Lord as He knows what is best for you and will make sure no one is wronged in the least. Juma Mubarak’ Shaykh Tahir

‘The words from your tongue and in the expressions of your face reveal that which you conceal in your heart. Arrogance causes destruction of one’s religion; greed is the enemy of one’s soul, and envy is the guide to wickedness. The tongue will betray the heart of the foolish.  You need to think and revitalise your heart in order to obtain the key to the gateways of wisdom. In the meantime, your clemency is suppression of anger and self-restraint.  The doer of good is better than the good itself, and the doer of evil is worse than the evil itself. Whoever  abstains from this world takes hardships lightly; and whoever anticipates death will hasten towards good deeds. Juma Mubarak’ Shaykh Tahir
