AUSPICIOUSNESS OF THE KALMA TAYYEB
In the context of remembering Allah, He says, “Walazikrullahu akbar”
Translation: “Undoubtedly, the remembrance of Allah is the biggest remembrance.”
“Warafana laka zikraka”
Translation: In the context of remembering His beloved Prophet Mohammed S.A.W, He says “ Hum ne tumhare liye tumhara zikr buland kardiya.”
The nobility of the remembrance of Allah and Prophet Mohammed S.A.W and the spiritual height of such a remembrance, when turned into a spiritual panacea, can together become a recipe for the most exalted holy remembrances. “Afzaluzzikr Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe” Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Allah taala ka daawa hai to Mohammedur rasullullahe us ki daleel hai. The proof of a claim is as strong as the claim, itself.
There is a narrative from Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddique R.D.A that Prophet Mohammed had said that HE had heard from Jibrail that Allah said that, on the entire Earth among all the ‘Kalmas’, the ‘Kalma Tayyeb’ is unmatchable.
DuE to the auspiciousness of Kalma Tayyeb all the matter of the Earth, the skies and the universes is constant. In reality, only the Kalma Tayyeb stands for love, sincerity, a cure, nobleness. It is the best. In the Quran, this Kalma is called by many names for example Kalmae Islam, Kalmae Eimaan, Kalmae Nijaat, Kalmae Taqwa, Kalmae Tauheed w Risalat, Kalmae Tayyeb so on.
Mulla Ali Qaari R.A says that there is no doubt that, among all the remembrances, the Kalma Tayyeb is the best and important it is this very same Kalma Tayyeb that is the foundation of Islam. It is this Kalma around which Islam revolves. Due to this fact, the saints consider this Kalma as the most important, and, among all the remembrances, give it the top preference. They incourage you to recite the Kalma Tayyeb to maximum possible extent, and as a holy exercise. There are plenty of benefits of this Kalma Tayyeb among all the Kalmas.
Hazrat Shaikh Abdul haq Mohaddis dahalvi R.A says that, among all the remembrances the Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe has the maximum explanation in details. Although the number of remembrances is infinite, the Kalma Tayyeb is the best and perfect.
Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe is the Kalmae Tauheed. Without this Kalma, it is impossible for your beliefs to be correct. The more your obsession with Kalma Tayyeb, the more your heart and soul get purified. All the secrets open up; These secrets are called ‘Israrul Alhiya’. There are special truths within the Kalma Allah says that in the Quran,
(Surah Ibrahim Aayat 24-25)
Translation: Seest thou not how God sets forth a parable? A goodly Word Like a goodly tree, Whose root is firmly fixed, And its branches (reach)To the heavens,
It brings forth its fruit At all times,by the leave of its Lord.
The root of the Kalma tayyeb is the soil of a ‘Momin’ this root is firmly ensconced in a momin ‘s soil. The fruits and the auspiciousness of the kalma tayyeb are ever-available.
(Surah Ibrahim Aayat 26)
Translation: And the parable of an evil Word Is that of an evil tree: It is torn up by the root From the surface of the earth: It has no stability.Because parable of an evil root is not ensconced, and its branches don’t touch the sky; it is baseless and doesn’t have a proof, confirmation and auspiciousness to reach the height.
(Surah Ibrahim Aayat 27)
Translation:God will establish in strength Those who believe, with the Word That stands firm, in this world And in the hereafter.
Hazrat Abu Qatada R.D.A says that, if there is a something in the world that is truest, it is the Kalma Tayyeb. The Kalma Tayyeb is only a answer of all questions which are asked in your grave. Because your grave is the first step towards judgment day. There death will be on their beliefs.
"Lahu dawatuhul haq”.
Translation: For Him (alone) is prayer.
(Surah Raed Aayat 14)
It is translated from Hazrat Ali R.D.A and Hazrat Ibn Abbas R.D.A that to invite people toward Allah is an evidence of the Kalma Tayyeb.
Translation: God sent down His Tranquility To His Apostle and to The Beleivers, and made them Stick close to the command of self-restraint; and well were they entitled to it And worthy of it.
(Surah Fatah Aayat 26)
Translation: God sent down His tranquility To his Apostle and to The Believers, and made them stick close to the command of itself-restraint; and well were they entitled to it And worthy of it
Hazrat Ali R.D.A, Hazrat Umer Farooque R.D.A, Hazrat Abu Hurera R.D.A and Hazrat Abbas R.D.A have copied from Prophet Mohammed S.A.W that ‘Kalmae Taqwa’ means Kalma Tayyeb.
“Watammat kalimatu rabuka sidkaw wa adlan”
Translation: The word of thy Lord Doth tind its fulfillment In truth and in justice:
(Surah Inaam Aayat 115)
It has been narrated from Hazrat Abu Hurera R.D.A that he had said, “Ya Rasullulla, who will have the maximum amount of your love and protection on the Day of Judgment?” Prophet Mohammed said, “I knew that you would be the first person to ask me such a question. You are the most-eager to know about the Hadith On Judgment Day, a person who remembers Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe in his every breath will get my maximum love and protection.”
There is a narrative from Hazrat Anas R.D.A that Prophet Mohammed S.A.W had said that, on the Judgment Day, Allah will order that those who had chanted the Kalma Tayyeb and had even an iota of beliefs in their hearts shall be brought out of hell. (Haakim)
Hazrat Abdulla Ibne Abbas R.D.A says that when you recite Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe regularly, you will lose the fear of your death, in your final moments. You will not get afraid in your grave. On the judgment Day you will not feel any anxiety. In fact, Hazrat Abdulla Ibne Abbas R.D.A can see a scenario in which those who had recited Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe will rise from their graves and will shake off the soil over their heads. The death, while removing the mud, will thank Allah, profusely for freeing them their problems, obstacles and miseries. (Tibrani-Behqi R.A)
There is a narrative from Hazrat Abu Hurera R.D.A that the Prophet, Mohammed, had said that you should recite Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe as much you can, before you reach a stage wherein you can’t recite it at all. (Abu Aili)
Prophet Mohammed had said that when any person says, Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe, “at the time of his death, he will be admitted to heaven in other revelation or Hadith, the Prophet states that, when a person recites Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe with his heart and soul, and dies immediately thereafter, there is no way that he will not go to heaven.
(Bukhari w Muslim sharif)
The Prophet had once told Hazrat Abu Hurera R.D.A to go to find a person who recites Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe with his heart, soul and a very firm belief; if he would find such a person, he (Hazrat Abu Hurera R.D.A) should give such a man the good news of heaven. (Muslim sharif)
Hazrat Usman Ghani R.D.A narrates that Prophet Mohammed said that a person who has a complete belief in Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe goes to heaven. (Muslim sharif)
Hazrat Talha R.D.A had said that he who understand the Kalma Tayyeb will go to heaven. (Haakim)
Imaame rabbani mujaddidul alfe saani sheikh ahmed sir hindi R.D.A said that narrow minded people wonder how, by merely chanting Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur rasullullahe, a person will go to heaven. These people are not familiar with the auspiciousness of the Kalma tayyeb. This saint has felt that, if whole universe is forgiven because of auspiciousness of this kalma tayyeb, and will go to heaven, so it is possible. It has been observe that, if the auspiciousness of the Kalma tayyeb is distributed throughout all creation, it gives sufficiencies to all creation, and makes the universe bloom. When the Kalma Tayyeb is combined with Mohammedur rasul lullah, the former becomes even greater; the knowledge that Allah is One gets combined with the Kalma; sainthood and prophethood become the companions of this kalma. Collectively the combination of these two Kalmas is the greatest height of sainthood and prophethood.
The Kalma Tayyeb is the guiding leader of sainthood and prophethood. This the kalma that purifies sainthood from the darkness. It lifts prophethood to its maximum height. Oh Allah please do not leave us without the auspiciousness of the Kalma. Please keep us constantly with the Kalma. Let us die only after we understood the Kalma completely. We are asking to Allah for the ability to respect the Kalma and to spread its message and to reach heaven to the auspiciousness of the ‘Ambiya Alaihissalatussalat w taslimaat w attahyat’.
(Maktubaate Imaame Rabbani Jild Suwwam maktub 37- page 1042)
“Samanul jannati Laa Ilaaha Illalahu Mohammadur rasoolullahe”
Prophet Mohammed said that, the value of heaven is in reciting and understanding the Kalma.
There is narrative from Hazrat Maaz Bin Jabal R.D.A that Prophet Mohammed said that the evidence of Kalma is the key to heaven.
(Musnad Imaam Ahmed)
Hazrat wahab Bin Mumba R.D.A was asked whether or not the Kalma tayyeb was his key to heaven. He said, “yes it is the key but every key has god configurations. The lock of heaven will open only with a configurated key. The meaning of such a configuration is to understand the Kalma with your heart, and to recite it with your tongue.
There is a narrative from Hazrat Huzefa R.D.A that Prophet Mohammed has said that, one day there will be a period with Islam will become so obscure that it will look like a garment whose design has become obscure due to frequent washings. Nobody will understand ‘Roza’, ‘Haj’ or ‘zakaat’. There will come a night when the Quran will become invisible and none of its aayat will remain. At such a time old men and women will say, “we had heard our elders recite Laa Ilaaha Illallahu Mohammedur Rasullullahe
Even when no pillar of Islam remain, the Kalma Tayyeb will protect you from hell. .” “We will also recite it.” Salaa R.D.A, a student of Hazrat Huzefa R.D.A, asked, “when haj, Roza, and zakaat will cease to exist what will be the use of Kalma?” Hazrat Huzefa R.D.A remained silent. Salaa again said, “why are you silent.” Salaa R.D.A also asked, “when no pillar of Islam remain, what will be the use of reciting the Kalma?” But the third time, Huzefa R.D.A spoke, “the Kalma will save you from hell! the Kalma will save you from hell! the Kalma will save you from hell!”
