Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam taught us everything. Following his ﷺ Sunnah is beneficial for both Dunya and Akhirah. They are the good, beneficial and accepted deeds in the presence of Allah ﷻ. His ﷺ way is a beautiful way.
Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam told about everything. He ﷺ told about matters of this world, how people should act and what they should do. One of them is that he ﷺ says, “Do not stay under sun for too long”. Sun is beneficial. But when it is too much, without protection or anything [of clothes] on you, that benefit turns into harm. Sometimes even Dhuhr prayers; in the holy place of Madina Munawwarah there were no tents and canopies in old times. They used to wait until a shade came and prayed a little later. Of course, we don’t need that much now.
But people of Dunya want to stay under the sun in a wrong way to get a tan or I don’t know what. So what if you get tanned as long as you don’t change from the inside? You got tanned, became red, black or dark – that has no benefit. This is the useless activity of people of Dunya. What’s useful is to benefit from everything for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. Do what is beneficial. When the benefit turns into harm, leave that thing. This is what our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says. Don’t harm yourself and don’t harm your Akhirah for Dunya, our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says.
People think the more they do of something in this world, the more they will be pleased and happy. People of Dunya who think they will satisfy themselves more resort to many things that bring no benefit but harm at last. What they see as beneficial and good becomes harmful. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla put benefit in everything. You must know how to use it. And that is only by following the way of our Holy Prophet ﷺ.
Otherwise, there is something new every day. People say it is very good and run after it. They say it is not good the next day and leave it. If people use or do it with adjustment, it will be good. But when they overdo it, its benefit turns into harm. May Allah ﷻ give mind and understanding to people. May they see the right way. And the right way is the way of our Holy Prophet ﷺ with the permission of Allah ﷻ. May Allah ﷻ give true strong Iman to all of us insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
