Sheer and whole happiness lies in attaining the Pleasure of Allah Almighty
We realized that sheer and whole happiness lies in attaining the Pleasure of Allah Almighty which is greater than any other bliss, even that of Paradise, “But the greatest bliss is the good pleasure of Allah, That is the supreme felicity." (the Repentance 9:72) so, we were determined to pursue Allah's Pleasure by declaring sincerity to Allah and following the example of His Prophet (PBUH).
Being sincere to Allah Almighty is to make no associate to Him publicly or secretly, in a decree or a ritual.
Allah says in a Sacred Hadith, "I am the One Most disposing of partnership. He Who performed a deed holding partners to Me in it, is left by Me along with his deed.”
Following Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) should be in the minutest as well as the greatest matters. For the best of guidance is that of the Prophet (PBUH). Allah Almighty says, “So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and denie yourselves that which he withholds from you.” (The Banishment: 7)It is to be noted that all the ways –other than that of Prophet Muhammad's- are dead ends. Add to this that those who follow the Prophet's Path find the gates of bounty flung wide open before them. There can be no doubt about this, for Prophet Muhammad says, "He who performs a deed, other than that (known) by us is apostate.” and the Prophet (PBUH) also said, "I am your predecessor at the Lake-Fount (Kauthar), and whoever will come to it, will drink from it, and whoever will drink from it, will never become thirsty after that. There will come to me some people whom I know and they know me, and then a barrier will be set up between me and them." Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri added that the Prophet further said: "I will say those people are from me. It will be said, 'You do not know what changes and new things they did after you.' Then I will say, 'Far removed (from mercy), far removed (from mercy), those who changed (the religion) after me!".
We trod down the path of Allah deploying the creed of the Prophet's Companions, a creed that forged the first generation of the Muslim nation and ranked them highly in this life and the Hereafter. This creed forged Abu Bakr, 'Umar, 'Uthman, 'Ali, Khubab, Belal, 'Ammar and Yassir. This is the creed that also produced Khadija, 'Aisha, Sumayya and Umm 'Imara. This creed captures the hearts, directs them to Allah with the spotless sincerity. These hearts declare Oneness of the Lordship of Allah and Oneness of the Worship of Allah. They further acknowledge the uniqueness of His ninety nine names (the Beautiful Names) and His lofty Attributes. Such a creed has been surviving for 14 centuries in defiance of the unbelievers' crusades, the hypocrite's dubiousness and the phony's fabrications in religion. This doctrine has been surviving despite the negligence it suffered at the hands of many of the Muslims and their compromising its rights.
This creed roots the foundations which stand as the launching pad towards our goals. To these goals we dispatch assured that Allah and no one but Allah is the One deserving to be worshipped because He is the Owner That possesses all the traits of perfection. Allah is our sole goal.
Such a creed causes the nation at the times of dispute to resort to Allah and His Prophet (PBUH). Allah Almighty says, "If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day” (Women: 59). Thus, this creed creates a harmonious understanding among its followers and eliminates the seeds of dissension and dispute. It further creates a close-knit community. It sheds light on the goals, sets objectives and specifies the right path. Moreover, it gathers the believers around one Righteous path.
Our creed is one whose followers, no matter how distant their homes are or how different their races and colors are, are in the pursuit of one goal and working with an eye on one objective: adhering to the same approach and walking down the same path.
It is a creed that defines man’s loyalty and directs it towards Allah, His Prophet (PBUH) and the believers. He who clings to this creed reaps not but pride. This is because a believer never experiences humiliation, shame or compliance. He may encounter the fluctuations of life between abject poverty and prosperity, limited resources and affluence. But this never hurts his dignity and pride in faith. This is because he receives this sense of pride in faith from Allah the Mighty Who says, "So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith” (the Family of Imran: 139).
The creed at question makes man his own judge and watcher as he fully realizes that in the Hereafter he would be addressed, “Sufficient is thy soul this day to make out an account against thee." (Isra’: 14). This way, the creed plants in one's heart whatever deters him from disobeying Allah's Ordinance, jurisprudence and Judgment. It also instills into his heart a sense that would retrieve him to the Righteous Path if he ever went astray.
This creed is the momentum that spurs man into proceeding in progress in obedience to Allah and hurrying to whatever brings about Allah's Pleasure.
The creed at hand makes its follower know at heart that Allah sees and listens and that ”Allah knows of (the tricks) that deceive with the eyes, and all that the hearts (of men) conceal” (the Forgiver : 19). It renders him sure that Allah will resurrect him on Doomsday to call him to reckon for his deeds. Imam Ahmed narrated that Sa’sa’a Ibn Mu’awiya came to the Prophet (PBUH) and recited the verse, “And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it.” (the Earthquake:8). He (Sa’sa’a) said, “Suffice it for me! I care not if I never hear another verse.”
This creed guides its followers out of the narrowness and inferiority of this life to the prosperity and grandeur of the Hereafter. You see its followers walking down on earth, but their hearts attached to heavens. Their efforts are not for this transient life, they rather get prepared in this worldly life for the Hereafter. In this world they are not interested but in whatever helps them in their journey to Allah and the everlasting abode. They grab this life with their hands, yet it doesn't have their hearts in its grip. They deploy this life in the service of the Hereafter. All that they have is for Allah and spent in Allah's cause. Allah says, “But best is the home in the hereafter, for those who are righteous” (the Cattle: 32).
This creed instills in its followers' hearts the yearning for meeting Allah Almighty. Thus, they hold the difficulties and hardships in Allah's cause easy. Nothing daunted, they face all the obstacles that hamper their way.
Our decree, then, is that of the faithful ancestors' part and parcel.
