Corrupt Beliefs Stemming From Fazaa’il-e-Amaal [Story 4]
As we have seen in our last few posts, doing du’aa to other than Allaah is shirk and futile. Even though this is a fundamental principle of Islaam, the Tablighi Jamaat promote calling out to the Prophet (saw) and complaining to him about one’s needs. The following story from Fazaa’il-e-A’maal shows this:
In Madeenah there lived a woman from the Haashimee family whose servants used to ill-treat her. She went with her complaints to the Messenger of Allaah (saw) where she poured her heart out.
From the grave she heard this reply, ‘Do you not prefer to follow my excellent example? Have patience, as I patiently persevered.‘
She then said, ‘After hearing that voice, all my grief disappeared and all the servants who used to annoy me passed away.’
[Fazaa’il-e-A’maal, ch.9, p. 175]
This story, as is obvious, is promoting nothing but shirk. As Muslims we complain to none but Allaah (see Quraan, 12:86), however this story is promoting otherwise.
