Sultan Bahoo | Spending in The Way of Allah | Sultan ul Ashiqeen standard

In Arabic, infaq literally means ‘to spend’ and fi sabilillah means ‘in the way of Allah’. So, Infaq fi sabilillah is spending in the way of Allah for achieving His goodwill and consent. To categorize broadly, infaq fi sabilillah is of two types: infaq-e-wajiba and infaq-e-nafila. One of these is mandatory and the other type of spending is optional. Infaq-e-wajiba is a religious obligation for all Muslims for which the Islamic terminology is zakat. The Sufis and Fakirs call it zakat-e-sharia i.e. the zakat of sharia. Ushr is also a part of it. On the other hand, infaq-e-nafila includes all kinds of alms and charitable donations that someone gives following the Sunna of Holy Prophet out of one's own desire to ...

Sultan Bahoo | What is True Repentance? | Blog Post standard

Allah says in Quran: اِنَّ اللّٰہَ یُحِبُّ التَّوَّابِیْنَ Meaning: Indeed, Allah loves those who turn towards Him. (2:222) Definition of Repentance: It is very important to know why Allah has emphasized upon renunciation from wrongdoings and sins. As without knowing the true meaning of repentance, it is pointless just to utter the words of repentance. The dictionary meaning of repentance is to ‘turn back’ and ‘consult’. To elaborate the meaning of repentance Allama Raazi writes in Mukhtar as-Sahah: “Repentance means penitence or abstinence from sins, bad deeds and disobedience and turn towards the goodness and virtue”. According to sharia repentance is obedience and submission to Allah by abstaining from His disobedience, delinquency and sins. However, according to Tareeqat (Sufism) repentance infact means; فَفِرُّوْٓا اِلَی اللّٰہ Meaning: “Run towards ...

Certainly, Faqr is a remarkable inward rank and marvel. There is nothing comparable to it in the inward. Faqr is the eternal destiny of those people who abdicated all the luxuries of world and hereafter on the day of Divine covenant. Thus, they remained firmly devoted to the Almighty Allah only. Indeed, none of the charms and pleasures of universe could shake their steadfastness. Undoubtedly, Faqr is the ardent Divine Love. Faqr is the path ...
