Shaykh Saleem Dhorat

Mawlana Islamul Haqq Saheb RH

The Death of Shaykhul Hadith Hadhrat Mawlana Islamul Haqq Saheb (Allah illuminate his grave).

[The father of Hadhrat Mufti Ikramul Haqq Saheb (Hafidhahullah) – Imam of Jaame Masjid, Blackburn & Senior Lecturer of Hadith at Jamiatul Ilm Walhuda, Blackburn]

As narrated by Hadhrat Mawlana Muhammad Saleem Dhorat Saheb (Allah lengthen his shadow). 23 Ramadhan 1436

A short story in Leicester.

Hadhrat Mawlana once came to Leicester for Jamat. When I heard he was coming I went to meet him at the Masjid at 5pm. Once Hadhrat had arrived, I said, “My house is free if you need to do ghusl.” He replied, “Yes! I need to, but let me ask the Ameer.”

I began to think who the Ameer could be? Hadhrat is an Alim of great calibre, who will be of higher status then him (to be an Ameer).

I happened to find out it was the father of a student (from Bury Darul Uloom).

Later they sat for Mudhakarah (discussion) before Asr. It was nearly the time for Ghusht (visiting houses). It had been decided Hadhrat will do Dhikr (rather than go for Ghusht).

After everyone left, I said, “Let’s quickly go, you can do ghusl then return.” He declined my offer saying, “I have been fixed for Dhikr, how can I leave the Masjid?”

This shows Hadhrat’s obedience to the Ameer and how careful he was in listening and obeying instructions.

Demise of Hadhrat.

The year he passed away Hadhrat came to Nottingham for a Khatme Bukhari Jalsa. After the Jalsa Hadhrat had a flight from Heathrow to Jeddah for Umrah. I offered Hadhrat, “Why don’t you drop by to Leicester on the way to the airport?” He refused, sadly.

So I humbly requested one more time, “When you return from Umrah, why don’t you come to Leicester on the way home from Heathrow?”

Hadhrat replied, “Why are you giving me baddua?”

I was confused and didn’t understand, how this was baddua.

Hadhrat further said, “I am going there to die (and be buried).”

I then understood what Hadhrat meant by “baddua” (curse).

Hadhrat spent the entire month in Umrah. It was the normal practice to complete the Qur’an on 29th Ramadhan in Haramayn Shareefayn. That Ramadhan, completion took place on 27th Ramadhan.

It was the 27th Ramadhan, night of Jumu’ah, Hadhrat finished his Taraweeh Salah in Masjid Nabwi (Sallallaho Alayhi Wasallam). He then retired to his hotel room.

Later, during the night he began Tahajjud Salah. He took long in completing, to the extent his son went to get the food for Sehri and his father was in Sajdah. The son returned with the food and Hadhrat was still in Sajdah… The son realised his father had returned to Allah!

Inna Lillah Wa Inna Ilay’hi Raji’oon

Some people just ask for a death in Medinah,

Some people just ask for a death in Ramadhan,

Some people just ask for a death in Sajdah,

Some people just ask for a death on a Friday,

Hadhrat had encompassed all these wishes in one death.

Allah accept his efforts, raise his status, enlighten his grave and grant him a lofty status in Jannatul Firdaws.

Allah grant us all such an amazing death.

Ameen Ya Rabb.

When he was in Makkah, Al-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz RH wrote a letter to his loyal assistants in Harlem… from his heart:

“Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and overwhelming spirit of true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colors and races here in this ancient Holy Land, the home of Abraham, Muhammad and all the other Prophets of the Holy Scriptures. For the past week, I have been utterly speechless and spellbound by the graciousness I see displayed all around me by people of all colors.

IMG_9154“I have been blessed to visit the Holy City of Mecca, I have made my seven circuits around the Ka’ba, led by a young Mutawaf named Muhammad, I drank water from the well of the Zam Zam. I ran seven times back and forth between the hills of Mt. Al-Safa and Al Marwah. I have prayed in the ancient city of Mina, and I have prayed on Mt. Arafat.” “There were tens of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world. They were of all colors, from blue-eyed blondes to black-skinned Africans. But we were all participating in the same ritual, displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe never could exist between the white and non-white.”

“America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, and even eaten with people who in America would have been considered white – but the white attitude was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam. I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practiced by all colors together, irrespective of their color.” “You may be shocked by these words coming from me. But on this pilgrimage, what I have seen, and experienced, has forced me to rearrange much of my thought-patterns previously held, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions. This was not too difficult for me. Despite my firm convictions, I have always been a man who tries to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experience and new knowledge unfolds it. I have always kept an open mind, which is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of intelligent search for truth.” “During the past eleven days here in the Muslim world, I have eaten from the same plate, drunk from the same glass, and slept on the same rug – while praying to the same God – with fellow Muslims, whose eyes were the bluest of blue, whose hair was the blondest of blond, and whose skin was the whitest of white. And in the words and in the deeds of the white Muslims, I felt the same sincerity that I felt among the black African Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan and Ghana.”

“We were truly all the same (brothers) – because their belief in one God had removed the white from their minds, the white from their behavior, and the white from their attitude.”

“I could see from this, that perhaps if white Americans could accept the Oneness of God, then perhaps, too, they could accept in reality the Oneness of Man – and cease to measure, and hinder, and harm others in terms of their ‘differences’ in colour.” “With racism plaguing America like incurable cancer, the so-called ‘Christian’ white American heart should be more receptive to a proven solution to such a destructive problem. Perhaps it could be in time to save America from imminent disaster – the same destruction brought upon Germany by racism that eventually destroyed the Germans themselves.” “Each hour here in the Holy Land enables me to have greater spiritual insights into what is happening in America between black and white.”

“The American Negro never can be blamed for his racial animosities – he is only reacting to four hundred years of the conscious racism of the American whites. But as racism leads America up the suicide path, I do believe, from the experiences that I have had with them, that the whites of the younger generation, in the colleges and universities, will see the handwriting on the walls and many of them will turn to the spiritual path of truth – the only way left to America to ward off the disaster that racism inevitably must lead to.” “Never have I been so highly honored. Never have I been made to feel more humble and unworthy. Who would believe the blessings that have been heaped upon an American Negro? A few nights ago, a man who would be called in America a white man, a United Nations diplomat, an ambassador, a companion of kings, gave me his hotel suite, his bed. Never would I have even thought of dreaming that I would ever be a recipient of such honors – honors that in America would be bestowed upon a King – not a Negro.”

“All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all the Worlds.”

Sincerely, Al-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X)

(From the AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X with assistance from Alex Haley, the author of ROOTS)

Malcolm X saw and experienced many positive things. Generosity and openheartedness were qualities which were impressed on him by the welcome which he received in many places. He saw brotherhood and the brotherhood of different races and this led him to disclaim racism and to say: “I am not a racist… In the past I permitted myself to be used… to make sweeping indictments of all white people, the entire white race, and these generalizations have caused injuries to some whites who perhaps did not deserve to be hurt. Because of the spiritual enlightenment which I was blessed to receive as the result of my recent pilgrimage to the Holy City of Mecca, I no longer subscribe to sweeping indictments of any one race. I am now striving to live the life of a true Sunni Muslim. I must repeat that I am not a racist nor do I subscribe to the tenets of racism. I can state in all sincerity that I wish nothing but freedom, justice and equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people.”
