The Shining Stars 2 ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB


Hazrat Bilal (RA) ~ Download Complete Lecture Here

“Each one is a shining brilliant star from the vast ‘Galaxy of Sahaba R.A’ and a great source of inspiration to us all!” (Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB)

An excellent continuation of discussions on the ‘Shining Stars’ …

A Sahabi, famous even amongst the young of the Ummat of Rasullulah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam … A Sahabi that we are all reminded of every single day of our lives … Whenever the call of Adhaan is given, 5 times a day, then a person is automatically taken back to none other than Bilal R.A and the Musjid of Rasullulah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam …

When we hear the Adhaan, what respect do we have for it? We overlook the Muadhin and ignore them … It is mentioned that on the day of Qiyamah, the Muadhin’s will have the longest necks (meaning they would be outstanding) … They will be honored in the sight of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala … They will be shown special respect on the day of Qiyamah … At any given time in any part of the world there is a Muadhin calling out Adhaan. This no low task but rather a privilege because a Muadhin is selected by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala …

In the discourses of the life of Bilal R.A, one is transported to the era of Rasullulah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam and is reminded of the very origin of the Adhaan and the ‘Muadhin’ of Rasullulah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Bilal R.A was extremely fortunate that he had been given specific glad tidings of Jannah … Under all afflictions, Bilal (RA) would exclaim:-

‘Ahad’ ~ The One (Allah) … ‘Ahad’ ~ The One (Allah)…

It is reported from Abu Hurairah : At the time of the Fajr prayer Rasullulah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam asked Bilal RA, “Tell me of the best deed you did after embracing Islam, for I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise.” Bilal RA replied, “I did not do anything worth mentioning except that whenever I performed ablution during the day or night, I prayed after that ablution as much as was written for me.”

In another narration it is related that he said, “Whenever my whudhu is broken I make new whudhu and pray two raka’ats.”

(Bukhari, Muslim, Musnad Ahmad)

This heart that we have, full of Hawaa and Hirs (longing and desire), greed, temptations … This heart that has been immersed in heedlessness, negligence, Ghaafil of Allah Subhanahu-Wa-Ta’ala

Oh Allah! Change this heart of mines!

The Dunya of this heart … Oh Allah! Change this heart! Oh my Allah! Have Fadl upon me … Change my condition! … How long am I going to stay in Sin! How long am I going to pass my life in sin and vice and evil …

Oh Allah! Change my path! Change my direction!

It must be such that from now on …

With every heartbeat of mines, I must hear ‘Allah’ ‘Allah’ ‘Allah’! 

I must become ecstatic upon that!

Oh Allah! I am going to sacrifice all these pleasures of mines. And in lieu of that, Oh Allah! Give me your Love! 

I will move my sight, my glance away from everybody besides you… and I will live now, just for Your sake!

Everything! My living, my dying must be only for Allah Subhanahu-Wa-Ta’ala … Oh Allah! I want to remember you continuously! Not just for a day and then back to heedlessness … Oh Allah! I have made up my mind! I have made up my mind! I am going to make this Mujahada now! Ya Allah, You make it Sahl (easy) for me!

Oh Allah! Shower your mercy upon me! Change my condition! I’m sitting at your doorstep my Allah! I’m lying at your doorstep with a broken heart! This heart is full of temptations! Now, I am making a sacrifice of these temptations. My heart has been broken, it has been shattered Oh my Allah!

Why should I live in this shattered condition! Oh Allah! This Arzoo (hope/desire) I have … and whatever Umeed (hope/expectation) , all I need now Allah is your Love! This is my Tamanna (desire) now! Oh Allah, listen to my cry, listen to my plea!

Oh my Master, my Guardian, my Protector, my Custodian, make me your true servant! Make me your true servant!

Oh Allah! Change my condition …


Mera Dil Badal De

Hawa-o-Hirs wala dil badal de

Mera Ghaflat me dooba dil badal de

Badal de Dil ki dunya dil badal de

Khudaya Fazl farmaa dil badal de

Hawa-o-Hirs wala dil badal de

Mera Ghaflat me dooba dil badal de

Badal de Dil ki dunya dil badal de

Khudaya Fazl farmaa dil badal de

Gunah gaari main kab tak Umr kaatoun

Badal de Mera rasta dil badal de

Sunoun Main naam Tera dharkano Main

Maza aajaye Maula dil badal de

Karoun Qurbaan Apni Saari Khushiyaan

Tu apna ghum ata kar dil badal de

Hawa-o-Hirs wala dil badal de

Mera Ghaflat me dooba dil badal de

Hataaloun aankh apni Maa-siwa say

Jiyoun Mein Teri khatir dil badal de

Sahl farmaa musalsal yaad apni

Khudaya Raham farmaa dil badal de

Para houn Teray dar par dil shikasta

Rahoun kyu dil shikasta dil badal de

Tera hojaoun itni arzoo hay

Bas itni hay tamanna dil badal de

Meri faryaad sunlay Meray Maula

Banalay apna banda dil badal de

Sunoun Main naam Tera dharkano Main

Maza aajaye Maula dil badal de

Hawa-o-Hirs wala dil badal de

Mera Ghaflat me dooba dil badal de

Du’aa for Fulfilling the Shukr for the Day ~

اللَّهُمَّ مَا أَصْبَحَ بِي مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ أَوْ بِأَحَدٍ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ فَمِنْكَ وَحْدَكَ لَا شَرِيكَ لَكَ

Allahumma maa ‘asbaha bee min ni’matin, ‘aw bi’ahadin min khalqik faminka wahdak laa shareekalak

Whoever recites this in the morning, has completed his obligation to thank Allah for that day; and whoever says it in the evening, has completed his obligation for that night.

Note : In the evening, you should say: Allaahumma maa ‘amsaa bee..: “O Allah, as I…enter this evening…”

Du’aa when Leaving Home ~

بِسمِ اللَّهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ

Bismillah, Tawakkaltu, ‘a-lallah, wa laa hawla wa laa quwatta illah billah

This Du’aa is for protection when leaving home and when recited, an angel calls out ‘you have been guided for the day’ …  Allah suffices our needs for the entire day …  Allah will make whatever tasks you have for the day easy for you and you will be protected from whatever fears you may have. Shaytaan distances himself  from such a person …

Du’aa after every Fardh Salaah ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB



  عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَخَذَ بِيَدِهِ وَقَالَ ‏”‏ يَا مُعَاذُ وَاللَّهِ إِنِّي لأُحِبُّكَ وَاللَّهِ إِنِّي لأُحِبُّكَ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ‏”‏ أُوصِيكَ يَا مُعَاذُ لاَ تَدَعَنَّ فِي دُبُرِ كُلِّ صَلاَةٍ تَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ 

Hazrat Mu’adh bin Jabal Radiallahu Anhu reported that Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wa Sallam took hold of my hand and said, “By Allah, I love you, Mu’adh, so I advise you to never forget to recite after every prayer: “Allahumma a’inni ala zikrika, wa shukrika, wa husni ‘ibaadatik (O Allah, help me remember You, to be grateful to You, and to worship You in an excellent manner)” . . .

(Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, an-Nasa’i, Ibn Khuzaimah, Ibn Hibban and al-Hakim)

. . . . . . .

We have to make Shukr to Allah for so many bounties. We are alive this morning, we are able to walk, we are able to speak, we are able to eat, we are able to see, we are able to move our limbs … All these are great bounties from Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala … We have woken up this morning as Believers! What a great Ni’mat from Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. A time will come when a person will sleep at night as a believer but will wake up in the morning as a disbeliever. Allah save us! We should continue to make sincere shukr to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and recite this prescribed Dua everyday …

اللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّيْ عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ

Allahumma a’inni ala zikrika, wa shukrika, wa husni ‘ibaadatik

O Allah, help me remember You, to be grateful to You, and to worship You in an excellent manner …
