Hadrat Shaykh Abdullah Daghestani (QS), often used to say,
في رجب ترى العجب
“Fi Rajab taral ‘ajab.” I cannot remember whose saying it is, but strange things do happen during Rajab, things that astonish people. In the month of Rajab, both spiritual and outwardly strange things happen. The most amazing thing was the miraculous Miraj journey of our Holy Prophet (SAW).
People are astonished thinking how such a journey could take place and their minds are incapable of comprehending it. Especially those who think of themselves as scholars (ulama) assume that this journey happened during sleep. Why should it happen in sleep? Anyone can have dreams in an ordinary way. Does that count as a miracle? Miracles happen in amazing ways, and those who experience them witness the happenings of awesome things, whereas something that happens in a dream is not anything special. Either their minds are incapable of receiving the power of Allah (JJ) or they are stubbornly unwilling to accept the truth, and are deceived by the game of Shaitan.
Our Holy Prophet (SAW), in the sight of Allah, reached to the greatest station and honor where no other could. Shaitan cannot accept this, and therefore Shaitan, to divert those who think of themselves as “ulama” from the path, puts in their minds some ideas. This is not to be called “inspiration”, because inspiration is only from Allah. These are bad thoughts. Shaitan has many soldiers. The number of believers is a lot, and the number of his soldiers is even more. He puts ideas in people’s minds to keep them away from faith and belief. In the sight of Allah, these strange things are not difficult to cause, but easy. These things appear to be strange in the sight of people. Anything that is difficult is easy for Allah. Things we see are things Allah shows us.
A person prefers to use his ordinary usual ways and does not want to change. That is why Allah brought us miracles, to awaken us. The order of Allah is fulfilled. This world is the world of possibilities; all is possible to happen. This is why a believer does not find these things strange. He knows this is the order of Allah. A believer waits for the happening of these amazing events and prepares himself.
Let us see what happens, what sort of things happen in the holy month of Rajab. May it be good for people and for Islam, Inshallah. For those who are diverted from the path, enemies of Islam, and enemies of the prophets, bad things happen. This is the way it is, here in the world and in the hereafter. May Allah protect us all from these happenings and let them be beneficial for us, Inshallah.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
