Habib Kadhim As-Saqqaf

Trodden path part two of two
Translated by Sheikh Ibrahim Osi-efa

Every single moment Allah showers mercies upon the believers

When mercy falls into a heart of a non Muslim then it is a cause for his guidance

The non Muslim cannot come near guidance with the means of the mercy that comes into the hearts of the believers

When he is close to them then his effected by the heart of Muslim

Believers are heedless of the mercy falling upon them from angelic beings

Likewise the person who recites Ayat Al-Kursi when an angel descends to protect the believer; most of them are heedless of this guardian angel

If a person goes to sleep with Wudhu then an angel sleeps with him to stop him turning; how many times do we tosh and turn in our beds?

The mercy of Allah is sensed by some and others are not aware

Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) said there are ten angels who protect a person from demons or devils

Ibn Asakir (may Allah show him mercy) said if it was not for the protection of the angels people would be snatched in the streets

Everybody benefits from the Earth, sun, rain etc

Although there are special gifts given to believers

The times are different and they have different qualities

Our role is to fulfil the prerequisite to receive this mercy

There are things that can never receive mercy the Jinns, satans

The opposite are the Angels who are the opposite of them

Then there is mankind, different to both; we need sustenance

We can reach height or lows

The first thing that was created was the light of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) then this light was separated as it is stated in hadith
Allah was before there was anything; before anything was created
There is a book with Allah that states, “My mercy overcomes my anger.” As in hadith

We should always have a good opinion of Allah (mighty and majestic)

Allah gives through intermediaries

We receive ten blessings from one invocation upon the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and this is ten mercies

Sometimes he will be heedless of the mercy that he is receiving until he reaches a time when he can recognise the mercy

When he agrees with the gifts that he is given then he receive more

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asked, “Would a mother throw her child into the fire?” The companions said, “No.” He replied, “Allah is more merciful than that.”

If a non Muslim saw the mercy that is descending on us then it would enter his heart

It would overcome ones nature

It can manifest suddenly

As soon as he believes in Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) mercies arrive at him

We can turn the heads of the non Muslims to these mercies

This is the turning of the hearts to this mercy

Also, someone can manifest this goodness to others and then this could be a cause to find its source

May Allah (mighty and majestic) envelop us in his mercy
