Hate Disbelief, Not the Disbeliever!

Hazratwala (DB) said:

“Mawlana Qasim Nanotwi (RA) once saw a Hindu street-cleaner that he knew, taking a stroll in Jannah in his dream. He asked him in the dream,

“O Lala Jee, how have you entered Jannah?”

The Hindu man answered, “At the time of death, I uttered that phrase…”

Notice that he is referring to the kalimah as “that phrase” due to the fact that for a Hindu, the kalimah is a phrase that must never be mentioned. But Allah granted him the tawfeeq of uttering it before his death. His whole life he had been worshipping idols and statues, but in the end, he was blessed with imaan.

This is the why having hatred in the heart for a disbeliever is haraam. Because we do not know what a person’s end will be upon.

Mawlana Rumi (RA) said,

Do not ever look at any disbeliever with hate,
Because there is still hope for him to become a believer!

Do not consider any disbeliever as low and inferior. Do not look at him with the eye of scorn. It might be that his end has been written to be amongst the believers. And in relation to oneself one should always meditate on the fact that it could possibly be that my end might be upon disbelief. We pray that Allah save us all and allow us to pass away in a state of imaan.

Translator’s Note:

One of the most deadly spiritual diseases is the disease of kibr (looking down upon others and rejection of truth). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Anyone who has an atom’s weight of kibr in his heart will not enter Jannah.”

Pondering deeply over the above mentioned utterance of Hazratwala is an excellent antidote to this deadly disease. May Allah Ta`ala save us from all spiritual diseases.
