Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah Radiallahu anhu narrates that Rasulullah Sallalahu Alayhi Wasalam is reported to have said, “When it is an extremely hot day, Allah Ta’ala turns His attention to the people of the skies and the earth.

The moment a person recites the following dua, Allah Ta'ala says to Jahannam, ‘Indeed, a servant of mine has sought refuge in me from you, now you bear testimony that I have granted him salvation from you.’” [Bayhaqi Vol.1 Pg.411]


There Is No Deity Except Allah. How Hot Is This Day!
O Allah, Protect Me From The Heat Of Jahnnam

During the month of Ramadhan, special time just before maghrib is set aside at the Khanqah for all the mutakifeen to recite this kitab. This is followed by Muraqabah-e-dua, which has been taught to us by Hazrat Sheikh Zakariyya Rahmatullah Alayhi.

The method is that the head is tilted towards the heart and the tongue is held against the top of mouth. The tongue will not move during dua and dua will be made from the heart only with full concentration.

For the first few minutes you will make dua for yourself, family & friends.

For the 2nd few minutes you will make dua for the entire muslim ummah. The last few minutes should be used to make dua for the entire creation.

This year (2014), we were fortunate to be visited by Hazrat Moulana Abdul Hafeez Makki Saheb, senior khalifah of Hazrat Sheikh Zakariyya Rahmatullah Alayhi. Hazrat was very pleased that the practice of Muraqabah-e-dua was being done at the khanqah.

It is narrated in Ihya-al-Uloom that there was a pious man among the Israelies, who always remained busy in
the worship of Allah. A group of people came to him and told him that a tribe living nearby worshipped a
tree. The news upset him, and with an axe on his shoulder he went to cut down that tree. On the way, Satan
met him in the form of an old man and asked him where he was going. He said he was going to cut a
particular tree.

Then Satan said, "You are not concerned with this tree, you better mind your worship and do not give it up
for the sake of something that does not concern you." This is also Worship", retorted the worshipper. Then
Satan tried to prevent him from cutting the tree, and there followed a bout between the two, in which the
worshipper overpowered the Satan. Finding himself completely helpless, Satan begged to be excused, and
when the worshipper released him, he again said, "Allah has not made the cutting of this tree obligatory on
you. You do not lose anything if you do not cut it. If it s cutting were necessary, Allah could have got it done
through one of his many Apostles."

The worshipper insisted on cutting the tree. There was again a bout between the two, and again the
worshipper overpowered the Satan. "Well, listen" said the Satan, "I propose a settlement that will e to your
advantage." The worshipper agreed, and the Satan said, "You are a poor man, a mere burden on this earth. If
you desist from this act, I will pay you three gold coin everyday. You will daily find them lying under your
pillow. By this money you can fulfil your own needs, can oblige your relatives, help the needy, and do so
many other virtuous things. Cutting the tree will be only one virtue, which will ultimately be of no use
because the people will grow another tree."

This proposal appealed to the worshipper, and he accepted it. He found the money on two successive days,
but on the third days there was nothing. He got enraged, picked up his axe and went to cut the tree. The old
man again met him on the way and asked him where he was going. "To cut the Tree." Shouted the
worshipper. "I will not let you do it", said the Satan. An encounter ensued between the two, and this time the
Satan had the upper hand and overpowered the worshipper.

The latter was surprised at his own defeat, and asked the former the cause of his success. The Satan replied,
"At first, your anger was purely for earning the pleasure of Allah, and therefore Almighty Allah helped you
to overpower me, but now it has been partly for the sake of the gold coins and therefore you lost." Truly
speaking, a deed performed purely for the pleasure of Allah alone carries great force.
