Righteous Men


What follows are some examples of the attitudes and statements of our righteous forebearers showing us how to strive against the appetites. We mention them as an admonition and lesson for all those with intelligence.

The Angels of Dhikr


Yet another type are the traveling Angels who seek gatherings of dhikr.  It is related that Abū Hurayra radīallahu `anhu said that the Messenger of Allah sallallāhu `alayhi wasallam  said:  Allah Almighty has Angels who roam about seeking the people of dhikr.  When they find a group doing dhikr of Allah, they call to one another, ‘Come to that which you have been seeking!'

They say, 'We are following what we found our fathers doing'


The strength of the expression of this Ayah would seem, on the surface, to challenge the whole matter of taqlīd, which is the acceptance of an inherited position without calling it into question, and there are other Ayāt which have the same import. This Ayah and the ones like it, however, are connected to what came before them. That is because Allāh informs us about the ignorance of the Arabs in judging by their superstitious customs concerning animals like bahīra, sā'iba and wasīla, using as evidence the fact that their fathers did that, and the command to abandon such customs was revealed by Allāh to His Messenger.
