Habib Umar ibn Hafiz 02-08

Dowra notes eight


Dancing is not appropriate for the scholars

The beginning is with Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala and the end is too

Sounds can have negative effects

The beginning is listening and this leads to a state of emotion with Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

This emotion has an effect on the body and can make it move

People are at different levels and may want to move to some poetry

He may listen to something to that he needs to change about himself

If he has a high level of understanding then it will lead him to a higher level with Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

They listen to poetry to be reminded of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala, everything guides them to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) once said to Ali (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) that he was from his family and Ali (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) was so happy that he danced

The voice at the time of singing is not permitted and neither at the time of death i.e. wailing etc.

Imam Shafi (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) said there was no good in poetry, he also said a person who involves himself in singing a lot, his testification is not accepted

Singing can cause corruption in the heart

A woman’s singing voice is not permitted to listen to, in any state

The reality of tasawwaf is sincere intention

Its not appropriate for a student of knowledge to ask for money

There was once a man who took money from people to pay for guests and for charity, he was close to death and someone asked you will die and you haven’t paid any of these debts off. He said that Allah has promised to repay my debts and before he died someone came to pay his debt.
