Advices of Fuzail bin Ayaaz R - Part 1

Islahi Majlis, at Musjid ut Taqwa on February 6, 2017

Hazrat Fudhail bin ‘Iyadh (R) was one of the great Auliya of this Ummah. His earlier years were spent in a life of transgression, as he was the leader of a band of robbers. There are two incidents relating to the repentance of Fudhail bin ‘Iyadh (R): the occasion when he witnessed a bird providing food for a blind snake, and when he heard a melodious recitation of the Ayah of the Quran, ‘has the time not yet come for the Believers that their hearts’ should melt and soften before Allah SWT’. This caused him to sincerely cry and repent to Allah SWT, and he then became accepted in the ranks of the Auliya of this Ummah. The life of Fudhail bin ‘Iyadh (R) is inspiration that we should never be despondent, as Allah SWT can elevate a person from a lowly state of sinfulness to the greatest heights of righteousness. It is a tactic of shaytaan to make a person feel his sins are so great that he becomes despondent of repenting and distanced from Allah, but the Maghfirah of Allah SWT is much greater than all our sins! After Fudhail bin ‘Iyadh (R) changed his life he desired to acquire the knowledge of Deen and became one of the star students of Imam Abu Hanifa (R). Regarding the subject of hope and fear Fudhail bin ‘Iyadh (R) mentions that the fear of Allah’s punishment is more virtuous whilst a person is young and healthy, but when death is closer then it is more virtuous to have hope in the mercy of Allah SWT. If a person has the expectation of Allah’s forgiveness he will attain it as Allah SWT treats His servants according to their expectation of Him.
