Good omens of lovers
If a believer keeps to these deeds and follows this method, Allah will embrace him, grants him his love and makes him among His beloved. The good omens of lovers are not to be counted or limited:
It was narrated that our master Hateb Ibn-Abi-Balta'ah (May Allah be pleased with him) was one of those who fought in the battle of Badr. When the prophet (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) told his companions that he intends to open Mecca, he wrote a message to the people of Mecca telling them about this and gave it to a servant woman and told her if she delivered it to the people of Mecca, she would be free, she went on her way. Gabriel came and told the beloved, so he sent our master Ali Ibn-Abi-Taleb and our master Azzobayr Ibn-Al-Awwam, they caught her after she gone out of Medina, Imam Ali told her to get the message out, she said she had nothing.
He said: By Allah, we neither tell lies nor anyone accuse us of telling lies, you either get out the message or I'll expose your private parts (it means to search her and that was something bad at that time), so she got it out from her hair. They took it and went to the prophet, the prophet called Hateb as it was great betray, he asked him: Why you did that Hateb? Our master Omar said: Oh messenger of Allah, let me cut the neck of this hypocrite, our master Omar was strong in doing right, but the prophet (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:
"He attended the battle of Badr, you don’t know, maybe Allah looked at the people of Badr and said: Do whatever you want, I forgive you." In another narration: "He (Allah) said: Do whatever you want, this is what made him dare."
There is a question here: Those who come after Badr like us to the Day of Judgment, what will they get? The answer is in this Hadeeth: "If Allah loves someone, no sin will harm him." How is that? The book of Allah says about this:
46-16: "It is from these that we accept the righteous works, and overlook their sins. They have deserved Paradise. This is the truthful promise that is promised to them."
So Imam Abul-Aza'em gave us a scale to know men, what is this scale? He said:
"If you see a man overpowered by spiritual life, don’t look at his sins."
i.e. don’t stop at his sins, because Allah says about such people:
"It is from these that we accept the righteous works, and overlook their sins. They have deserved Paradise."
"And if you see a man overpowered by animal life, don’t look at his favors."
As Allah says about such people:
25-23: "We will look at all the works they have done, and render them null and void."
The important thing is the dominance of spiritual life. We beg Allah to make us among his beloved and near servants who are delighted and occupied totally by obeying and worshipping Him, to support us by His own to remember Him, to be grateful to Him and to be good worshippers for Him, to guide us all over our lives to remember Him, to make us with His beloved and chosen observed by his lights, to throw pure secrets from His luminous holiness into our hearts and to make us among those who have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon our prophet Mohammed, his family and his companions.
