Junaid Jamshed was a man of
substance and the real definition of Islam. He was a person who moved the world
from his change of character to his beautiful and humble personality by
following the footsteps of the best of creation Prophet ﷺ.
Spending his time in the way of Allah and spreading the message of Prophet ﷺ.
Life is very short and surely not guaranteed.
Remember we all make mistakes, we are human at the end of the day and were
designed to make mistakes. Learn from his personality and his humbleness. His
personality was humble and this was his tool which he used to attract people to
the message of Islam.Islam combines an equal amount of Love, Fear, and Hope. We
are only humans so inevitably we will make mistakes and sin from time to time.
Often, we tend to despair when we commit a sin. But Alhamdullilah, our
forgiveness is only a prayer away. We don’t need any intercessors. We don’t have
to pray to anyone else. We have a direct link. Mash’Allah what a beautiful
religion…….a beautiful Way of Life!
On the authority of Anas, who said: I heard the messenger of Allah say:
Allah the Almighty has said: “O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask
of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son
of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask
forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me
with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing
no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as its.”Islamic
teaching presents the prophet Muhammad as an example of someone who would
forgive others for their ignorance, even those who might have once considered
themselves to be his enemies. One example of Muhammad’s practice of forgiveness
can be found in the Hadith, the body of early Islamic literature about the life
of Muhammad. This account is as follows:
The Prophet (may peace be upon him) was the most forgiving person. He was ever
ready to forgive his enemies. When he went to Ta’if to preach the message of
Allah, its people mistreated him, abused him and hit him with stones. He left
the city humiliated and wounded. When he took shelter under a tree, the angel of
Allah visited him and told him that Allah sent him to destroy the people of
Ta’if because of their sin of maltreating their Prophet. Muhammad (may peace be
upon him) prayed to Allah to save the people of Ta’if, because what they did was
out of their ignorance.
