A Woman Bearer of Purposeful Life - 2

By Hazrat Maulana Syed Muhammed Rabe'a Hasani Nadawi(DB)

(Condolence Address of Manager of Nadwat-ul-Ulama Hazrat Maulana Muhammed Rabe'a Hasani Nadawi on Passing Away of Hazrat Maulana Abrar-ul-Haq Haqqi Rehmatullah Alaihi's Wife)

After Praise (of Lord Most High) and Peace (on beloved Prophet) Hazrat-o-Aala said: Honourable Gentlemen and Ladies! It is a matter of obedience (to God) for me that I am present here. The work on education of the Holy Qur'an, Correction of beliefs and the work of revival of Sunnah that was started by Hazrat Muhi-us-Sunnah Maulana Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab, may Mercy be on him, and the Seminary (Ashraf-ul-Madaris) that he established to fortify that task so that model students are prepared by that and then, by extending that work, the beginning of Majlis-e-Dawat-ul-Haq and the seminaries that he established at various places and a beneficial work of training and Correction was performed - in that he used to get special assurance because of the suggestions of his wife. She was a women of many praiseworthy traits. Perceiving the character and desire of Hazrat Maulana (RA)  she took special care of his comfort and took care of his guests and associates and looked after them. After his death she took more care of this responsibility but no one will stay here for ever. Who so ever is born he is born with his predecided age-she too completed her age. The ages that Allah Lord of Honour has fixed for people is not devoid of purpose, rather these have been fixed according to the responsibility and the task that is assigned for them. He gives them the opportunity to do that work and then he calls them back. And the real world is that world. In this world Allah only wants to know whether the person becomes a thankful one or thankless one. All concerned with wife of Hazrat Muhi-us-Sunnah (RA) used to call her Ammi Jan. Whatever age she got in that she did many deeds of righteousness and lived a purposeful life and gave lots of strength to religious work. She used to be a special source of strength to Hazrat Maulana Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab (RA) and she left this world with the same trait of her, that is, sympathy, relaxation and affection for every body. She revived the Sunnah of the Mother of the Faithful Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra (RA). Whatever sympathy Hazrat Khadija (RA) had with Prophet, may Peace and Blessings be upon him, in matters of Divine Pleasure she made that her method in her life with Hazrat Maulana Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab (RA).

The senior elder of our family Hazrat Shah Alamallah Hasani (RA) who was a notable caliph of  Syed Adam Binnori (RA), a caliph of Hazrat Mujaddid Alf Sani (RA). When his son (Shah Alamallah(RA)'s) died in night then he did not inform anybody. At the time of morning Prayer, against the norm, he got up and came to the door and addressed a special servant that in the night Miyan Abu Hanifa has passed away, arrangements for his burial should be made. On the same day after the burial was over he said that with all Praise for Allah Miyan Abu Hanifa left this world with the wealth of faith and showed happiness on departure of his son with faith. An old woman used to spin the wheel daily. He went to her and asked as to why she is not spinning? The old woman said Hazrat such a worthy son is taken away and in that sorrow should we not even stop spinning? He said that all these are matters of destiny, no one has a right to question Allah's decisions. Life is effervescent, one should be agreeable to Lord's wish. You should continue your work.

Muhi-us-Sunnah Hazrat Maulana Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab (RA) too was a similar epitome of patience, endurance and acceptance of Lord's wish and the path he had put her on she remained established on that.

For seekers of Allah's pleasure matter of life and death is not a big one. Our women should try to adopt those traits on which Muhtarmah Ammi Jan lived and on which she left this world.

Those who leave this world with good deeds their inheritors benefit from them. This benefit will be received by the present members of the family. A big responsibility to the present people is that they remember their ancestors in Supplications. Everybody needs Supplications be he of very high stature and therefore we should keep that in mind.

The pain that has been caused by her demise that is natural pain. At such occasions sorrow is not forbidden, this is sorrow of separation. But this separation is temporary and brief; after that there will be favour of Allah Most High and there will be gathering together there. For a believer the pain of the world is not a big pain, separation of death is temporary.  For disbeliever the separation is permanent but for believer it is temporary and for the time being only. Then all will gather together.

The place that Allah would have granted her would be high according to her good deeds and will be of excellence but for us all her right is that we remember her in supplications.

We congratulate you that you bore this sorrow the way righteous people of Allah bear it. May Lord Most High accept it and grant a high place of Mercy and Forgiveness to the departed lady.
