    Who will take up the cudgels

    Published by Naqshbandi Muhammadi Tariqah on Wednesday, 14 December 2011
    Many of us have been wondering for a long time who was going to take up the cudgels to defend the position of the Ahlis Sunni wal Jama' ah in this country.  I am now a relatively senior person and I have seen no signs of this.  Here and there there are major pretences as to the defence of the understanding of Islam as advocated by the Ahlis Sunni wal Jama' ah.  Most of these pretences have in fact come to naught because of the power of the riyal.

    The Du'a ul-Istiftah

    Letter from Shaykh Yusuf Da Costa

    On the many occasions that I have listened to very pious people, the one matter that stands out for me is the extent to which the word "Allah" is on their tongues. If one operates in a mainly secular environment, as is the case with many of us, then the word Allah only comes on our tongues occasionally. Many of us have come to learn in Tasawwuf that we must break free of secular discourses, and keep our tongues moist with the word "Allah" and with other remembrances. In the case of many of us, secularism runs deep in our veins especially because of our education and the work we are involved in. Many people find it almost impossible to come away from a discourse in which Allah is never or seldom mentioned. It is Allah's decision as to who He chooses to do this with, and the fact that He has chosen many of us, gives rise to intense and deep gratitude for our Lord for saving us from a discourse that is satanic.

    Letter from Shaykh Yusuf. The hajj scandal - losing our moral compass

    Published by Naqshbandi Muhammadi Tariqah on Tuesday, 8 November 2011
    Another year, another hajj, another scandal! And so, consistently almost every year, the pilgrimage to the House of Allah has given rise to different kinds of scandals in South Africa; or if not a scandal, then major problems for the pilgrims. The pilgrims, of course, are always the victims. It appears that many of those who have monopolized the travel arrangements are primarily concerned with lining their pockets, whatever the social or religious cost. There is no doubt that the arrangements to get pilgrims to Mecca and back have had a serious negative impact on the ibadah of the hajj.

    Some of us are forgetting our Lord - Shaykh Yusuf Da Costa

    Letter of Prof Yusuf Da Costa to Murids

    In the large variety of experience that we have gone through in our work for Islam amongst both Muslims and non-Muslims, perhaps one of the startling for Islam amongst both Muslims and non-Muslims, perhaps one of the startling facts that stands out for me is the reluctance of Muslims to praise their Lord.  I do not only find this surprising, because we come from a long line of history of such remembrance, but I also find it very disconcerting.  The latter s because I cannot understand how a community that is defined in terms of Islam shows a major reluctance to celebrate the praises of Allah Almighty.

    Remembrance as spiritual stepping stones - Shaykh Yusuf Da Costa

    Published by Naqshbandi Muhammadi Tariqah on Tuesday, 25 October 2011

    One of the things that I think many of us regret is that we had not been made aware in the past, when we were much younger, about the process of purification in Islam.  To a large degree many of the forms of worship in our religion are ritualized.  We prayed because we were told to pray.  And so, under instruction by our parents usually, we performed ibadat.  In many cases when we could dodge, we dodged, because we were never made aware of the almost unlimited spirituality in our religion.  To many of us it was just one of those inconveniences in our lives, inconveniences which we had to perform. This is extremely sad because it drove large numbers of people away from Islam.

    Contentment of the Heart

    Published by Naqshbandi Muhammadi Tariqah on Tuesday, 13 September 2011

    A Letter from Shaykh Yusuf Da Costa to Murids of the Naqshbandi Muhammadi Tariqah

    Especially during the holy month of Ramadan, if undisturbed, one's heart is overwhelmed with peace and satisfaction or rather with contentment.  It is difficult to say whether this is as a result of one's intensive approach to one's Lord through fasting, or on account of the fasting and other additional forms of Ibadat that one makes; but the contentment is there.
