The discovery of our helplessness

By Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Sunday Guardian | March 29, 2020

As a created being, man is in the complete sense, a helpless creature. However, for the purpose of the test of mankind, it appears as if he is in control and possesses the power to   direct his life. Man should reach beyond this apparent feeling of control and discover his helplessness.

This is a great discovery within which lies all the secrets to his success.

Lose in order to gain

The Prophet of Islam has been reported as saying that the noblest charity is that of imparting knowledge to one’s brethren.

What is charity? It is the extension of goodwill and love towards one’s fellow creatures.

This feeling can find expression in the form of gifts of money, or simply in the giving of good advice.

Positivity ensures success in life

Cain and Abel were two brothers. They belonged to the first generation of Adam and Eve. There arose some differences between the two, and Cain finally said to Abel in anger: "I shall kill you!" (5:27). Abel did not react and calmly replied: "If you raise your hand to kill me, I will not raise mine to kill you. I fear God, the Lord of the Universe" (5:28). This incident is not simply an incident that once happened between two brothers. It is a universal principle of sublime character.

The Prayer for Good Health

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian |June 12, 2017

According to a hadith, the Prophet Muhammad is said to have remarked: “For whomsoever of you the door of supplication is opened, for him the doors of mercy have been opened. And in God’s eyes praying for good health is dearer to praying for anything else.” (Sunan al-Tirmidhi, hadith no. 3548).

We must co-exist despite differences

A pluralistic society is defined as a place where different religious, ethnic and cultural groups live together. But this kind of definition is not correct. The fact is that pluralism is a law of nature. Every society is a plural society, even every family is a plural family.
