بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
A person took the name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad mockingly. His face turned skew and remained like that. That unfortunate evil one came to the Prophet and said: “Pardon me, as you have the gift of special knowledge from Him. ”
Mawlana Rumi says:
“When Allah (swt) decides to bring disgrace upon someone,
He causes him to incline towards mocking the saintly one.
This evil inclination also is a consequence of some other sin of his,
That he begins to taunt the righteous ones.
Allah then punishes him with disgrace and humiliation.
And when Allah desires to hide someone’s faults and sins,
He helps him not to speak of the faults of faulty ones.
And when He desires to favor us with good,
He makes us incline towards sighing and crying in front of Him.
Refreshed be that eye which cries in front of that truly Beloved
And may that heart be blessed which is broiled in His Love.
Where there is flowing water, there greenery grows
And where tears flow, there Allah’s garden blooms.”
The Hadith teaches us that there are two drops of water which are very much loved by Allah: The drops of tears that are shed through the fear of Allah and the drops of blood that are shed in Allah’s path.
“When he repented from his courage for committing sins, Rasulullah granted him pardon. If you desire Allah’s mercy then in crying grant pardon for him Who begs of pardon from you.
And if you seek the Mercy of Allah, Then first show mercy to the weak ones.”
