How to Overpower One’s Own Soul to Do Good – Shaykh ʿAlī al-Ḥaddādī حفظه الله

Shaykh ʿAlī ibn Yaḥyá al-Ḥaddādī said:

[The question] says: “How can I fight my [own] soul in [making myself] love acts of obedience, seeking knowledge, learning knowledge, and praying in congregation?”

How do you fight against your soul…. This means you compel it. Compel your soul. Your soul says, “No, don’t attend the lesson.” Tell it: “Rather, I will attend the lesson.” Start your car and head off to the lesson.

This is the solution.

You hear the call [to the prayer] while your soul is feeling sluggish, loving sleep. Tell it: “No, there’s no [more] sleep; there’s prayer.” Get up, perform ablution, and walk to the mosque.

Once, twice, three times, it’s over. [Your soul] will become compliant. Your soul will become compliant and give in to you.

But if you pamper it—every time it tells you, “Don’t do it,” you say, “Hearing and obeying”—it will overpower you. You will not be able to direct it.

So then the issue, after Allāh gives one true success and [one] puts [his] trust in Allāh, is one of your overpowering your soul and compelling it, and it will become compliant for you after one, two or three times, if Allāh wills.

The Heavens and the Earth weep when the Believer Dies – Tafseer Ibn Kathir

The Heavens and Earth weep when Believer Dies

Ibn Jarir recorded that Sa`id bin Jubayr said, “A man came to Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, and said to him: `O Abu Al-`Abbas, Allah says,

( فَمَا بَكَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّمَآءُ وَالاٌّرْضُ وَمَا كَانُواْ مُنظَرِينَ )

(And the heavens and the earth wept not for them, nor were they given respite)do the heavens and the earth weep for anybody‘ He, may Allah be pleased with him, said,

`Yes, there is no one who does not have a gate in the heavens through which his provision comes down and his good deeds ascend. When the believer dies, that gate is closed; it misses him and weeps for him, and the place of prayer on earth where he used to pray and remember Allah also weeps for him.

But the people of Fir`awn left no trace of righteousness on the earth and they had no good deeds that ascended to Allah, so the heavens and the earth did not weep for them

If Allah wants to favor someone,
He grants him comprehension (understanding) of this religion.

[Sahih Bukhari vol.1 # 71, Tirmidhi and Musnad Ahmad]

“The example of guidance and knowledge with which, Allah has sent me is like abundant rain falling on the earth, some of which was fertile soil, absorbed rain water and brought forth vegetation and grass in abundance. (And) another portion of it was hard and held the rainwater and Allah benefited the people with it and they utilized it for drinking, making their animals drink from it and for irrigation of the land for cultivation. (And) a portion of it was barren which, could neither hold the water nor bring forth vegetation (then that land gave no benefits). The first is the example of the person who comprehends Allah’s religion and gets benefit (from the knowledge), which Allah has revealed through me (the Prophet) and learns and then teaches others. The last example is that of a person who does not care for it and does not take Allah’s guidance revealed through me (He is like that barren land.)” [Sahih Al-Bukhari v.1 no.79. Narrated by Abu Musa]

It is only those who have knowledge amongst His slaves that fear Allah.” [Soorah Al-Fatir (35): 28]

“Seek knowledge, because seeking it for the sake of Allah is a worship. And knowing it makes you more God-fearing; and searching for it is jihad, teaching it to those who do not know is charity, reviewing and learning it more is like tasbeeh. Through knowledge Allah will be known and worshipped. With the knowledge Allah will elevate people and make them leaders and imams, who will in turn guide other people.” [Fatawa Ibn Taymiyya vol.10, p.39]

“Whoever treads on a path in search of Islamic knowledge, Allah will ease the way to Paradise for him. The angels will lower their wings, pleased with this seeker of knowledge, and everyone in the heavens and on earth will ask forgiveness for the knowledgeable person, even the fish in the deepest of waters will ask for his forgiveness” [Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi # 2835-sahih hadith]

“He whom death overtakes while he is engaged in acquiring knowledge with a view to reviving Islam with the help of it, there will be one degree between him and the Prophets in Paradise .” [Al-Tirmidhi Hadith no. 249. Narrated by Al-Hasan al-Basri]

On the authority of Aboo ‘Amr, though others call him Aboo ‘Amrah Sufyaan bin ‘Abdullaah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said: I said: “O Messenger of Allaah, tell me something about Islaam which I could not ask anyone about save you.” He answered: «Say: ‘I believe in Allaah,’ and then stand firm and steadfast» [Saheeh Muslim]

“Verily, those who say: `Our Rubb is Allah (Alone),’ and then they stand firm, on them the angels will descend (at the time of their death) (saying): ‘Fear not, nor grieve! But receive the glad tidings of Jannah which you have been promised! We have been your friends in the life of this world and are (so) in the Hereafter. Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and therein you shall have (all) for which you ask. An entertainment from (Allah), the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”‘ (41:30-32)

Verily, those who say: `Our Rubb is (only) Allah,’ and thereafter stand firm and straight (on the Islamic Faith of Monotheism), on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. Such shall be the dwellers of Jannah, abiding therein (forever), – a reward for what they used to do.” (46:13,14)

Al-Bukhaari (1240) and Muslim (2162) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) say:

The rights of one Muslim over another are five: returning the greeting of salaam, visiting the sick, attending funerals, accepting invitations, and saying yarhamuk Allah (may Allah have mercy on you) to one who sneezes.”

And Muslim (2162) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

“The rights of one Muslim over another are six.” It was said: What are they, O Messenger of Allaah? He said:“If you meet him, greet him with salaam; if he invites you, accept the invitation; if he asks for advice, give him sincere advice; if he sneezes and praises Allaah, say Yarhamuk Allaah (may Allaah have mercy on you); if he falls sick, visit him; and if he dies, attend his funeral.”

Last gathering briefing:
  • Rights of Husband and Wife
  • Treating each other good
  • Wife on obeying the husband in that which is right
    • serving the husband
    • responding when husband calls for intimacy except for legislated reasons (eg. if it would increase any sickness, Assalah time would pass etc.)
  • Fulfilling rights should be done in the right manner – eg. without showing dislike (which then is not fulfilling the rights)


  • Man or Women did not see properly before marriage – not pleased with the partner’s look
  • They look at one another’s shortcomings and don’t look at the good qualities – a believer should not hate any believer
  • Illness caused by medical reasons like short temper
    • needs overlooking
    • give time
    • discus at later time
  • Illness caused not by medical reasons like
    • jealousy
    • evil eye
    • magic
  • Problems are not dealt with when it occurs – accumulating it
    • need for dealing in calmness
    • need for treating maters done intentionally and by mistake, differently.
  • Non fulfilling the obligatory rights of one another
  • Outside interference – from families etc
    • due to this they should be very cautious of any outside interference especially when it is intended for separation
  • Husband has more than one wife and he does injustice
For Deficiency with the Husband steps for wife:
  1. Humbly speaking the mater in a nice manner
  2. trustworthy Individuals/ from Family/ who have positive influence to speak to husband
  3. think of  what would be the result of separation – if she finds staying with husband is better (eg due to – old age, children, general benefit of situation) She compromises some of her rights
    • Example from the time of prophet – Sauda bint Zam’a (radiallahu anha), wife of the prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam) – she compromised one of the greatest rights of a female – giving her nights to Aisha (radiallahu anha)
For Deficiency with the wife steps for Husband:
  1. Admonishes, Reminds wife:
    • to fear Allah,
    • Rights of Men over Women. eg. the hadiths :
      • “If I were to order any individual to bow to another, I would order the females to bow to their husband…”
      • “Obedience to the husband is one of the greatest means by which a women can enter into Jannah…” etc
    • Shaykh Mentions: “I donot say these narrations so that the men can approach the wife with opression... But I mention so that the women is well informd of the rights of her Husband over her and that she can fear Allah with regards to her husband. “
  2. Abandon Sleeping with his wife
  3. Hits his wife in a legislated manner.
    • not more than 10 times
    • not in a place that would cause bodily harm
    • should not leave mark etc…
    • the purpose of hitting is to inform that the situation is serious, not to punish or harm her.
  • The reconciliation then is very difficult
  • They call someone eg. from his family and her family – that which is legislated is that they call Judge from his side of the family and her family – someone should represent man and women – individuals who have wisdom – strong intellect.
  • they listen to both the parties and gives a ruling after advising with reconciliation
  • if they notice there is no means of reconciliation, then they would advice that they seperate
  • Man merely divorces without payment
  • if Female seeks separation returns mahr for the man
  • And the ruling of the judges should be executed
What is also important is that the men pays close attention to the advice of the prophet salallahu alayhiwasallam with regard to women – the Wasiya – farewell hajj speech
  • “be kind to women..”
  • “she is like a captive with you…” – this should cause the men to be merciful, gentle with the wife.
  • man should not take advantage of women’s weakness and oppress her
  • “the best of you is the best to his wife…”
  • Prophet had issues with his wives and did hijrah for 29 days – but he was gentle, patient and kind to his wife.
  • There is no house free of problem
Man and women should look at the future:
  • the bad results of separation
  • what happens to the children
  • evil outcome of separation in society
  • who would approach after this? (for females)
  • Own family conflicts
But Shaykh mentions:
  • “if there is pure turmoil, anger and aggression in the house and no compassion, then the final step is seperation.”
  • “Talaaq is not always evil”
