Al-Hasan Al-Basry – Asking for Forgiveness


Friday

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin my body was able to commit through the strength You provided, and my ability reached through Your Graces, and my hand was extended to through the vastness of Your blessing, and while committing it I was veiled from people by Your concealment, and while doing it, my fear of You counted on Your shelter, and Your tolerance made me secure from Your Might, and I relied on Your Generosity and Clemency,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

Abu Hamed Al-Ghazali: Selections from: “O Loving Son” (Ayyuha Al-Walad)


  • Ay Farzand” (O loving son!) is a short book of counsel that Ghazali wrote for one of his students. The book was written in Persian, and was translated to Arabic early on, entitled “ayyuha al-walad al-muhibb“. (Walad can be translated to “son”, “boy”, “youth”, “young man”, and we chose “son” for this translation).
  • A student of Imam Al-Ghazali, who spent many years studying different branches of religious knowledge, wrote to ask him what would be of real help to him and would illuminate his grave, and what would not be of benefit to him on the Day of Judgment, so that he could refrain from as Sayyidina Mohammed (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) said in the Hadith: “I seek Allah’s refuge from a knowledge which is of no benefit”.
  • He wrote a letter to Al-Ghazali with the view of getting an answer to his questions. Furthermore, he asked him in his letter to teach him a supplication that he could always recite. He wrote in his letter that although Imam Al-Ghazali has written numerous books on this issue such as Ihya’ Ulum al-Din (The Revival of Religious Sciences), “Kimiya as-Sa’ada” (Alchemy of Happiness), “Jawahir ul-Quran” (Gems of the Quran), etc., he was still in need of a short manuscript that he could always study and carry around, and that would accompany him to his grave. In reply to his letter, Imam Al-Ghazali wrote him a letter starting with “O loving son” of which we selected the following:
  • In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful.
  • Praise and gratitude be to Allah, The Lord of all worlds, and the best end is for the pious, and prayers and peace and blessings upon His prophet Mohammed and all his family.
  • The Importance of Deeds
  • O beloving son, may The Lord prolog your life in His obedience, and take you along the path of His loved ones. Know well that advice should come from the essence of Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam’s Message.
  • If my advice has already reached you, what do you need new advice for? And if it did not, then tell me: what have you been learning these past years?
  • From among all that Rasulullah, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam advised his nation, is his saying: “A sign that The Lord ignores His slave [abd] is that he busies himself in what does not concern him; and if a man wastes an hour of his life in doing other than what he was created for, he definitely deserves that his grief be prolonged, and whoever has passed forty without his good surpassing his evil should start preparing for hellfire”. This advice should suffice whoever is knowledgeable.
  • O son, advice is easy, but what is difficult is accepting it. Those following whim find advise bitter tasting, because their hearts love what is prohibited; specially the one who seeks acquiring formal knowledge, and is busy satisfying his self [nafs] and exploiting the world, thinking that pure knowledge is his path to salvation, and that he can dispense with deeds and acts. This arrogant one does not know that when he acquires knowledge, if he does not act in accordance to it, the proof and evidence against him is more definite, as Rasulullah, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said “The person most severely punished on the day of resurrection is the knowledgeable whom The Lord Almighty does not allow the benefit of his knowledge.”
  • Abul-Qasim Al-Junayd, may The Lord sanctify him, appeared in a dream after his death, and was asked “What is the news, O Abul-Qasim?” He replied, “All our statements and signals perished and vanished to nothing, and nothing benefited us except some prayers we made in the middle of the night.”
  • O son, do not be without deeds; and be assured that knowledge alone will not help you.
  • (the following verse emphsizes that it is the action and the deed and not the preparedness that counts)

If you measure two thousand ounces of wine, 
you will not be elated and ecstatic if you did not drink.

  • If you studied a hundred years and collected a thousand books, you would not be ready for The Lord Almighty’s mercy except by your acts and deeds, as The Lord Almighty said: “and that man shall have only what he [himself] strives for [53:39]” and “…So whoever hopes to encounter his Lord, let him do righteous work … [18:110]” and “whereas those who repent and believe and act righteously – such shall enter Paradise and shall not be wronged in any way [19:60]”
  • Faith is statement by the tongue and belief in the heart and acts and deeds of the body. The value of a good deed is beyond counting. Although the slave [abd] enters heaven by The Lord Almighty’s favor and generosity, this is after he readies by obedience and worship; “surely the mercy of God is near to the virtuous [7:56]” Al-Hasan Al-Basri said: The Lord Almighty tells his slaves [abd] on resurrection day “My slaves [abd], enter into heaven by my mercy and share if according to your deeds.”
  • O son, if you do not work, you will not find reward.
  • O son, how many sleepless nights have you passed acquiring knowledge and reading books? If your motive was reaching worldly aims and boasting over your peers, then woe to you. But if your motive was following the path of the prophet, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, and breaking your self [nafs] that commands to evil, then bless you. And the poet was truthful who said:

Sleeplessness of the eyes for other than Your Face is a waste
And their weeping for other than Your loss is in vain

  • O son, live as long you please, you will definitely die.
  • And love whatever you wish, you will definitely part with it.
  • And do whatever you will, you will definitely be rewarded for it!
  • O son, knowledge without action is pure insanity and actions without knowledge is impossible.
  • And know that knowledge which today does not prohibit and prevent you from sin, and does not impel you to be obedient, will not distance you tomorrow from hellfire. If your knowledge does not result in your performing your duties and good deeds of today, and your fulfilling what was missed of your duties of the past, you will definitely say tomorrow on resurrection day: “…‘Our Lord! We have seen and heard. So send us back so that we may act righteously, …. [32:12]” where you will be told: O stupid: this is where you just came from.
  • The value of night prayer:
  • O son, if pure knowledge was enough for you and you did not need other deeds, then His call (in the later part of each night): “Is there anyone asking (for Me to give)? Is there anyone asking forgiveness (for Me to forgive)? Is there anyone who repents (for Me to Pardon)?” would have been without value. It is related that some the companions of Rasulullah, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, mentioned `Abdullah Ibn Omar before him, and he said, “An excellent man is he if he would pray at night”. And he said, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, to a man from his companions, “do not sleep a lot at night, for a lot of night sleep leaves the person poor in the day of resurrection.”
  • O son; “And for a part of the night, keep vigil therewith as a supererogatory [devotion] for you [17:79]” is an order; “and at dawns they used to seek forgiveness, [51:18]”is a praise; “and the imploring God’s pardon at daybreak. [3:17] “ is a [zikr]. Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, said,? “Three voices The Lord Almighty loves: the voice of the rooster and the voice of the one reading the Qur’an, and the voice of those seeking forgiveness at daybreak.”
  • Sufyan Al-Thawri said “The Lord Almighty created a breeze which blows at daybreak, to carry the [zikr] and the [istighfar] (asking for forgiveness) to the Mighty King”. And he also said “At the beginning of each night, a caller calls from beneath the Throne: may the worshipers wake up and rise! and they rise and pray for as long as The Lord Almighty wills; then a caller calls at midnight, may the obedient wake up and rise arise! and they rise and pray till dawn; and at dawn, a caller calls, may those asking forgiveness wake up and rise! and they rise and seek forgiveness; and then when day breaks, a caller calls, may the negligent and inattentive wake up and rise! and they rise from their beds as the dead resurrected from their graves.”
  • O son, Luqman the Wise in his advice to his son said, “O son, let not the rooster be smarter than you – he cries at dawn while you sleep!”
  • Al-Shibli, may The Lord’s mercy be upon him, served four hundred professors and said: “I read four thousand Hadiths; of which I selected a single Hadith by which I live; for I examined it and found in it my salvation and safety, and that it included all the knowledge of the first and the last. It is that Rasulullah, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, said to one of his-companions, “Work for your world according to how much you will live in it, and work for your afterlife according to how long you will stay in it; and work for The Lord Almighty according to how much you need Him, and work for hellfire according to how much you will endure it.”
  • About Sufism
  • O son: know that Sufism entails two characteristics:
  • Honesty with The Lord Almighty, and tranquility with the people;
  • Whoever is honest, and improves his character with the people, and treats them with tolerance, is a Sufi. And honesty is that he sacrifices his self’s [nafs] fortune to follow The Lord Almighty’s orders; and proper character with people is that you do not oblige them to follow your self’s ([nafs]’s) desire, but you oblige your self ([nafs]) to their desires as long as they are compliant with [shariaa].
  • You asked me about slavery: it is three things: the first, compliance with the orders of [shariaa]; the second, accepting destiny and The Lord Almighty’s decisions; the third, giving up your self [nafs] desires to seek pleasing The Lord Almighty.
  • You asked me about entrusting: it is enforcing your faith in what The Lord Almighty has promised, and believing that what He has destined for you will definitely reach you, even if everyone in the world tries to prevent it; and that what He has not destined will not reach you, even if all the whole world helps you.
  • You asked me about sincerity: it is that all your deeds be done for the sake of The Lord Almighty, your heart not finding solace to praise from people, and not caring for their insults. And know that the origin of hypocrisy is in glorifying people, and its remedy is regarding them as being enslaved to The Power, and to be sure that they unable of delivering any benefit or harm. If you assume that they have any power or might, hypocrisy will not part with you.
  • O son,…, freely give your soul, for the epic of this path is in freely giving and donating the soul; as Dhul-Nun al-Misri, may The Lord have mercy on him, told one of the students, “If you are able to freely give your soul, then come (join us); otherwise then do not waste your time in Sufism .”
  • Don’t Boast Your Knowledge
  • O son: ….. as much as you can do not dispute an issue, for this entails many afflictions, and brings more sin than benefit, for it is the origin of every ugly trait: as hypocrisy and envy and grandiosity and hate and animosity and pride and others…..If your intention is that the truth appears and not be lost, a dispute can be permissible but with two conditions: the first is that it makes no difference for you whether the truth is revealed through you or through the other party; and the second is that you prefer dispute in private over disputing in public.
  • And know that questioning and disputing is an ailment of the heart, and answering is an attempt to cure it; and the ignorant are sick in the heart, and the scholars are their doctors; and a deficient scholar will not heal well; and the real scholar will not treat everyone, but treats who is hoped to benefit and to be cured; and if the ailment is incurable, the smart scholar would say that this person is hopeless and does not waste his time in attempting to cure him. Then know that … of the incurable ailments is that of the person whose question or objection comes from his envy and hate. Whenever you give him the best answers to his questions, he only increases in hate and hostility and envy. The solution is to ignore him, as was said:

Every animosity can be hoped to be removed

except the animosity arising out of envy

  • So you ought to ignore him and leave him with his sickness. The Lord Almighty said, “Withdraw from whoever turns away from our warning and desires nothing except the present life.” And the envious, with everything he says and does is lighting a fire into his good deeds, as the Prophet, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “Envy devours good deeds as fire devours wood.”
  • O son: heed this and contemplate it so that you may find salvation: If you are told that the Sultan would come visit you in a week, I know that during this time you would only busy yourself by fixing what the Sultan would see, of clothing and body and house and furniture and others. And now contemplate what I refer to, for you are smart, and a short phrase suffices the shrewd. Rasulullah, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, said: “The Lord Almighty does not regard your shapes or your acts, but He regards your hearts and your intentions.”
  • Supplication

And pray using this supplication in all times, specially at the end of your prayers:

O Lord, I beg You to grant me graces that are complete

and chastity that is permanent

and mercy that is comprehensive

and health that is attainable

and a living that is most affluent

and a life that is most pleasant

and benevolence that is most conclusive

and blessing that is most sweet

and gentleness that is most beneficial.

O Lord, please be for us and do not be against us.

O Lord, please conclude with happiness our term,

and fulfill more than our hopes,

and grant us good health for our days and nights,

and meet our destiny and fate with Your mercy,

and pour Your utmost forgiveness over our sins,

and grace us by fixing our flaws,

and make piety our provision,

and allow us striving in Your religion,

and make us trust in You and depend upon You.

 

O Lord, please establish us on the path of correctness and integrity,

and shield us in this world from all that beget regret on resurrection day,

and decrease the burden of our sins,

and grant us the life of the pious,

and alleviate all our concerns in this home (this world) and that home (the afterlife),

and divert the evil of the wicked and the scheming of the immoral from upon us,

and emancipate us and our fathers and mothers and brothers and sisters from hellfire,

with your mercy, O Mighty [Azeez], O Forgiving [Ghaffar]

 

O Generous [Kareem],

O Concealer of Flaws [Sattar].

O Creator of day and night,

please free us of the concerns about this world and form the torture of the grave and from hellfire,

O Knower [Aleem] O Compeller [Jabbar].

O Allah, O Allah, O Allah;

 

With Your Mercy O Most Merciful of the merciful,

O First of the firsts,

O Last of the lasts,

O Most Powerful, O Steadfast;

O Merciful to the miserable,

O Most Merciful of the merciful.

There is No God save You, [Subhanaka] (glory to Thee) I have been among the unjust.

And may the lord send prayers upon Sayyidina Mohammed, and upon all his family and companions; and thanks and praise to Allah, The Lord of both worlds.

I beg for the forgiveness of The Lord, whom there is no God except Him, The Living, The Eternal, and I repent to Him a repentance that increases with every eye blink, and with every breath, a hundred thousand times, that lasts with the lasting of The Lord who is Everlasting, without termination or end, for eternal ever. Begging You to accept, O He, O whom there is no God save He.

O Lord, please send prayers upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and send abundant peace and greetings, prayers that continue as long as You, and last as long as You, and which never end without Your knowledge; prayers that satisfy You and gratify him, and through which You are pleased with me, O Lord of all worlds, and thanks and gratitude to the Lord for this. “Exalted is your Lord, the Lord of Might, above what they describe. And peace upon the messengers. And praise to Allah, Lord of all worlds.” [37:180-182]
