“Special” Waqf-e-Nau

Friday Sermon 28th October 2016

On 28th October 2016, Huzoor (Aba) mentioned in his Friday Sermon that if Waqifeen-e-Nau follow the following criteria, only then they will deemed ‘Special’. Those points are mentioned below.

Waqifeen will have to prove that they are ‘special’:

1.   They will have to prove that they are ahead of others in their relationship with Allah; then they will be called ‘special’.

2.   If they have fear of God more than others; then they will be called ‘special’.

3.    If their standards of worship are a lot higher than others; then they will be called ‘special’.

4.    If they offer supererogatory prayers along with the obligatory ones; then they will be called ‘special’.

5.   If their degree of general conduct is extremely high; then they will be called ‘special’.  

6.   If there is a marked difference in their language and talking manners. If it is clearly observable that there is a genuinely trained person who prefers faith over worldly matters; then they will be called ‘special’.

7.   If they are girls, then, their dress and purdah is symbolic of true Islamic education. When others see it, they will be envious and say that despite living in this environment, their dresses and purdah are an extraordinary model; then they will be called ‘special’.

8.   If they are boys, then their eyes will be looking down due to bashfulness and not wandering toward culpable actions; then they will be called ‘special’.

9.   If they will be spending their time to attain religious knowledge rather than looking at the useless things on the internet; then they will be called ‘special’.

10.                If the appearances of the boys will be distinguishable from others; then they will be called ‘special’.

11.                If they recite from the Holy Qur’an, look for its commandments, and after finding them, would act upon them; then they will be called ‘special’.

12.                If they regularly take part in the programs of the auxiliary organizations and the Jama’at more than others; then they will be called ‘special’.

13.                If they excel their brothers and sisters in treating their parents well and praying for them; then they will be called ‘special’.

14.                At the time of matrimonial match, if they look for faith rather than worldly material, and then get along with their relationships, and can say that while acting upon the religious directions they are the ones who carry on with their relationships; then they will be called ‘special’.

15.                If they are more forbearing than others and in case of altercation and disorder, they not only refrain from them but become peacemakers; then they will be called ‘special’.

16.                If, in the field of propagation, they take the lead position to fulfil this duty; then they will be called ‘special’.

17.                If they are in the front row to obey the Khilafat and acting upon its decisions; then they will be called ‘special’.

18.                If they are the ones who are more rugged and sacrificing than others; then they will be called ‘special’.

19.                If they excel in humility and selflessness, hate arrogance and wage jihad against it; then they will be called ‘special’.

20.                If they are among the ones who listen to my Sermons and watch other programs of mine on MTA so that they keep on getting guidance; then they will be called ‘special’.

21.                 If they act upon these and all those matters that are liked by Allah and keep away from all those things that Allah has forbidden, then they are distinctly and rather very special. Otherwise there is no difference between them and others…………… Then, what to talk of being special, then in the sight of Allah, they will be counted among the unfaithful and pledge-breakers.
