Special feelings at Baitullah - Musallah Rahmaniyyah, Canon Ave
We are in the Mubarak month of Dhul Hijjah, and the Hujjaaj are preparing to embark on the five days of Hajj. Once they complete the rites of Hajj they will return with the ‘certificate’ of Jannah, and the title of ‘Hajee’. Shaikhul Islam, Hazrat Mufti Taqi Usmani DB, beautifully describes in his poetry the feelings that should be in the heart of a person at Baitullah. He likens the condition of the visitor of Baitullah to that of a spiritually bankrupt ‘beggar’, standing at the door of Allah SWT. He describes sorrow and regret at a life of wasted opportunities, spent in greed for the things of this world, which has resulted in the loss of his capital of life and destroyed his Suqoon-e-Qalb (peace of heart). But, even for a person in such a state of spiritual poverty and darkness, there is a glimmer of hope. The house of Allah SWT is the door of His gifting and generosity! In such a Royal Court, people do not know how to conduct themselves, or have the words to express their condition; however, Allah SWT knows exactly what is in the heart. With the shame of sin burning the heart, a person ought not have the courage to stand in front of Baitullah, but there’s no other Door besides the Door of the Merciful and Forgiving Allah Rabbul Izzat. A person becomes spiritually cleansed in the ‘washing machine’ of the seven rounds of Tawaaf, and when the two Rakaahs Salaah behind Maqaame-Ibraheem are read all his sins are forgiven!
