Heading towards Baitullah

Zikr Majlis, at Musjid ut Taqwa on July 18, 2019

Ashaar: Darbar me hazir hai

The days of Hajj are fast approaching and the fortunate Hujjaj will be blessed with the opportunity of standing in front of Baitullah, many for the first time in their lives, a moment of great spiritual achievement! There is no better place and time to repent and make strong intentions for reformation. The beautiful poetry of Hazrat Mufti Taqi Usmani DB, ‘Darbar me hazir hai’ describes the Kayfiyah (spiritual sentiments) of a lost servant presenting at Baitullah, loaded with the ‘backpack’ of sin. The poetry laments a person’s helplessness and spiritual bankruptcy, being a victim of shaytan’s games and naf’s tricks, leaving him engulfed in the darkness of ghaflah (heedlessness). In a state of perplexity, the mind blank, tears having disappeared, the flame of the ‘burning coal’ in his heart rising, he silently pleads with Allah SWT, hoping in His generosity and mercy. The beggar at Baitullah is actually a ‘king’, as here, one will never go empty handed or be deprived. The Mizabur-Rahmah (golden gutter of mercy) is flowing at every moment with spiritual rains! The Ka’aba is the ‘markaz’ of love, where a Mu’min has the opportunity to express his servitude, neediness and intense love for Allah. Hazrat ends the poetry with du’a, the ultimate purpose of the first vision of Baitullah, for guidance to the right way of life, a heart filled with spiritual treasures, a lifeboat of obedience to negotiate the oceans of transgression, to see the ‘lights’ of Madinah Shareef, a special mercy and forgiveness and for the desert of the world to be transformed into an oasis of obedience!
