Never Ignore Good Advice: Lessons from Islamic History

Post by Imran on Thu 03 Mar 2016, 7:30 pm

When your doom is destined you loose the
company of your intelligence, patience and you
rush to destruction. That is what happened to
Pharoah and this is what happened to those
70 leaders of Quraish who were intoxicated
with their quanitity of number and quality of
There was a man in the court of Pharoah who
had believed in Moses (pbuh) but hid his faith.
In the court when Phaorah was consulting his
courtmen and ministers how to deal with
Moses peace be upon him, this man advised
Pharoah earnestly not to kill Moses. Do You
kill a man just because he says that My Lord is
Allah, while he has brought clear proofs from
your Lord and if he is lying then upon him is
the consequence of his lies but if he is
truthful? There will strike you some of what he
promises you... the verse from Surah Ghafir
continues with the advice of this man
stretching upto a whole ruku... Phaorah did
not heed to his advice but he choose to listen
to Hamam and Qaroon and other pyshcopants
in his court.
In the camp of Quraish the scene was a little
similar to the court of Pharoah. They
appointed Umair bin Wahab to take a stock of
the Muslim army. He went around the valley
on his horse and found that the Muslims
numbered only around 300. So he went back
and said: I saw only three hudred but I fear if
there are others who are following them or
hidden. Allow me to go farther and check it.
He was allowed to ahead. He went and
searched but could not find any thing. Some
Muslims spotted him and he was identified by
his horse. Rasullullah peace be upon him
looked at him and said : If only the Quraish
heed to the advice of this man, when he gives
them, they will be saved from destruction.
Note the words of caution that Umair gave to
his tribe when he returned and went to Hakim
bin Hijam : You are a strong man of Quraish. I
took a complete stock of the Muslim army and
I did not fnd anything special but I see a
calamity befaling upon the Quraish. I see
camels sitting on the back of their masters
(The Musims have come along with death..
Either they die or they will kill )....The Ansar
are such, they dont have any refuge except
their swords. There is not a single among them
who will die without killing atleast one of us.
And if this happens then what is the purpose
of remaining alive for the rest of the life.
Hakim heard this and went to Utbah. Utbah
agreed and so did some young men of Quraish
pagan. Hakim took 'Utba's mesage to Abu Jahl,
who was laying out arrows from out of the
quiver. "I see," said he, as the message was
delivered to him, "Utba's courage has failed
Utba was furious at the taunt of Abu Jahl, and
retorted "The battle would tell which of them
would come off with the blot of cowardice".
Saying this he asked for a helmet. But his skull
was so big for any helmet that could be found.
As a last resort he wound a piece of cloth rung
his head and got himself armed. In the battle
'Utba, the chief in command, had been stung
to the quick by the taunt of Abu Jahl. He came
out of the line with his brother and son ; and
called for an adversary.
It was customary with men of repute among
the Arabs to go out to the battlefield with a
special mark of distinction. 'Utba had a feather
of an ostrich stuck on his chest. 'Auf, Mu'adh
and 'Abdullah Ibn Rawaha came out to meet
the Quraish notables. 'Utba asked them their
names; and on learning that they were all
Ansaris, he said he had nothing to do with
them. Then he called to the Holy Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)
saying they (Mu'adh and others) were not his
equals. The Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) asked Ansaris to retire.
Hamza, 'Ali and 'Ubaida (Allah be pleased
with them ) took up the challenge. They had
helmets over their faces and could not be
recognized. 'Utba asked who they were ? They
told him their names and parentage. "Yes",
said 'Utba, "You are a match for us." 'Utba
engaged Hamza, Walid came upon 'Ali and both
the infidels were slain. But 'Utba's brother,
Shaiba, wounded 'Ubaida. 'Ali (Allah be pleased
with him) came up and did him to death.
Quriahs lost 70 of their cheftians and got a
deadly blow. The reason was simple. They did
not heed to the good advice but followed their
ego and jealosy.
There are many such moments in life when we
are heading towards a destruction, we will be
confronted by some good advisors around us.
They will caution you to be away from having
an affair with a Disbeliever or caution you
from taking an interest based loan for buying a
house or a car. Good advisors will be there but
if you are not heeding them ? Then note the
words of Allah.. walantajida sunnatillahi
tabdila..You will not find a change in the
tradition of Allah......If it can be with Phaorah,
if it can be the Quraish of Makkah it can be
us too.. I hope you get my advice !
