Sheikh Ml Ibrahim Mia (db)

Sheikh Moulana Ibrahim Mia (Rahmatullah Alayhi) emphasised the need for Taleem (Learning & Teaching Deen) at home.

Some of the books Sheikh encouraged were Faza'il Sadaqat and Deen ke Baate (a fiqh kitab, available in English). Part 2 of Fazai'il Sadaqaat was empahsised for the softening of the hearts of the family. Sheikh (Rahmatullah Alayhi) also encouraged the reading of Hazrat Sheikh Zakariyya's (Rahmatullah Alayhi) other kitabs.

Amongst the advices he used to impart to those in Itikaaf was that we it is us who sat in Itikaaf and not the family. We should not expect the family to be suddenly spiritually boosted when we return home and then be harsh with them. Rather, we should start taleem and win them with hikmat. This will slowly bring about the desired changes.

The mothers of our pious elders played an important role in the upbringing of their children.

We have collected a few stories from Pearls from the Path by Moulana Afzal Ismail (DB) together with a few duas for children from the Quran Shareef.

Advices to Students of the girls madrasah on Friday, 3 Feb 2012


Allah sent us to the world for the sole purpose of worshipping Him. Allah says:

و ما خلقت الجن والانس الا ليعبدون

  • Worship of Allah can only be done correctly if we learn the rules and regulations of this worship from the Ahadith and laws of Fiqh. To do Ibadah in the proper way, you need to have Ilm regarding it. By learning the Sunnah method of discharging that Ibadah, the Ibadah will be perfected. If it is not according to the Sunnah, the Ibadah will be haphazard and will not earn acceptance in the court of Allah .

  • We are taught in the Ahadith how to spend the 24 hours of our day. We need to make Shukr for the great position that Allah has placed us in. It comes in a Hadith:

من يرد الله به خيرا يفقهه فى الدين

For whomsoever Allah wishes goodness, He blesses him with the understanding of Deen.

As students we need to make Shukr for being chosen from amongst these people who have been chosen to learn Deen. Allah Ta’ala Says:

لئن شكرتم لئزيدنكم

If you are thankful, I will most definitely increase for you.

  • Deen is only good if you learn and practice upon it, otherwise it will be similar to the case of a donkey, which is carrying the JALALAIN AND SIHAH SITTAH. The Ilm will only benefit if it is put into practice for the pleasure of Allah . Follow Allah’s command and the Sunnah of Nabi Kareem and you will attain Allah’s love.

 Summary of Talk by Sheikh Ml Ibrahim Mia Damat Barakatu

Sat 25 August 2012

Verluam, South Africa


  • As is normal, Sheikh started with correction of intention

  • Last week this time we are all looked forward to Eid. It is correct to be happy on the occasion of Eid.

  • Now, what are we going to do after Ramadhan? Are we going to continue with our good deeds?

  • It will be easy to continue with our good deeds and habits performed in Ramadhan out of Ramadhan, provided we don't start sinning.

  • In one Hadith it is said the good deeds are multiplied in reward between 10 to 700 times. The reward will depend upon sincerity, intention and how close to the Sunnah it is.

  • We may experience difficulty doing good deeds but we must go against our nafs.

  • Do not follow nafs and shaitaan. Go through difficulty.

  • Ibrahim bin Adham (Rahmatullah Alayhi) said any good deed done in difficulty will weigh heavier on the scales.

  • The reward for fasting is with Allah. Allah will give a reward according to sincerity, keeping away from sins and good deeds done during the fast.
