Task Muslims on good attitude

Grand Sheikh Zawiyatul Falah, Sheikh Sulaimon Muhd. Sodiq (Baba n Zaria) has preached the importance of Prophet Muhammad (S.AW) emphasising on knowing and finding God through His Prophet.

Baba n Zaria noted that the love of worldly things is the lead of all mistakes in life, He further urged Muslims to find and know God in all their activities as a way of worshipping Him.

“Let us find God, when you say God is invisible, it means something has covered Him, but nothing has covered God, hence God is visible when you have inner eyes, one should be able to recognise Him” he explained.

Emphasising on importance of knowing God, he cited Ibn Abass Tafsir, “They should find and know Me very well before you worship Me” He further noted that the Prophet (SAW) said a bad attitude spoil good works one has done, just like alcohol spoils honey.

Baba n Zaria said Knowing God by the prophet did not make Him antagonize anything about Rosululahi because antagonising anyone or anything related to God is antagonising Him

According to Sheikh Ibrahim Niyass, understanding the isharat is more than being in a closed room for a year doing azkar, which is in line with the hadith of the prophet that states the thinking of an hour is more than the worship of a year, in another verse, it states that the thinking of an hour is more than the worship of seven years, and in another verse, the thinking of an hour is more than the worship of 70years.

Baba n Zaria noted that The prophet (SAW)has never questioned or complained about any of his wives on their doings, even the servants that lived with Him, God only made him human for us to be able to interact with him but he is more than that.

He advised that if anyone needs to find God, anything related to being human, including oneself should be sent off, knowing God supersedes everyone. That is why Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said “ I am the one that knows Allah, the most, I follow him the most and I fear him the most by following his rules and desisting from what he doesn’t want”.

Baba n Zaria noted that the followers of Prophet Isah (Jesus) and Prophet Musa (Moses) who claim to love God did not believe in Prophet Muhammad not to talk of following him, stating that Sheikh Ibrahim Niyass knows Prophet Muhammad than anyone which made him love and preach about Him than anyone even those who spent time with the Prophet did not preach about Him the Way Sheikh Ibrahim Niyass preached about Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).

He also noted that attitude is also important, why Almighty Allah said Prophet Muhammad was clean and perfect in his service to Him, his attitude is also pleasing to Him, hence anyone that serves Allah, knows Him without a good attitude or making his/her fellow human being uncomfortable in life, all their service to Allah is in vain

Speaking on attitude, he made reference to the story of a woman who fasted and kept vigil but makes her neighbours uncomfortable, Prophet Muhammad said she is a descendant of hell.He emphasised that anyone that knows God won’t experience bitterness, grief and sorrow of any kind,because the person knows God out of everything happening, seeing God that gave the test from the test itself.

Also, Sheikh Mukhtar Dede preached the importance of Prophet Muhammad after death, emphasising on the ignorance of some people who claim He doesn’t exist even after death.

He noted that some people antagonize the prophet that when he is dead, no one can see him. He further urged Muslims who really desire to see prophet Muhammad to work towards it by engaging with their daily azkar with determination, coupled with a good attitude to fellow human.
