A Lift Experiance




1) I was once getting down a lift in Makkah almost in full and it stopped in one of the floor to get in more people. I tried to close the door as I felt it was already full. One of the elderly pilgrim beside me then said ‘ _Dil mein Jagha hei to Jagha hai_ ’ – _If there is space in the heart, there is still space_. So, I let the door open.

When you think, your vehicle is full, there may be more space for someone.

When you think, your house is full, there may be more space for someone.

When you think your sufra (dining) is full, there may be more space for someone.

When you think your saff (rows in prayer) is full, there may be more space for someone.

When you think your country is full, there may be more space for many someones (refugees).

*IF THERE IS SPACE IN THE HEART, THERE IS SPACE : ‘DIL MEIN JAGHA HEI TO JAGHA HAI’*


فَٱفۡسَحُواْ يَفۡسَحِ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمۡ‌ۖ
Make space (room), and Allah will make space for you (Surah Al-Mujadilah: Part of Ayah No.11 )



2) Recently I was getting down the elevator of Jeddah business center. I asked the guy inside of it as I got in, are you going down. He replied ‘ *Yes, we are all going down anyway this day or the other*. He just reminded my grave.



3) Musa Moulana May Allah have mercy on him once narrated his lift experience he had in Makkah.

During the Haj days, the hardest thing to get back to one’s room is getting a lift. Especially after Friday prayer. Moulana was waiting for long to get his lift and he finally got the chance to get in. Suddenly a young Arab overtook Moulana, got in and he clicked the close button. As the door was closing Moulana said to him ‘ الله اقوى منك Allah is powerful (mightier) then you.


As the young man heard this word, he immediately clicked open the door, came out, kissed the forehead of Moulana and said ‘ فضل يا شيخ – Welcome O elderly (scholarly) one. This Youngman then used to visit Moulana at his room.


Moulana narrated this to show the quality of Arabs, when the name Allah was mentioned before them, they put everything of their self-prides beside and submitted to the One who is Most High.


إِنَّمَا ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ ٱلَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ ٱللَّهُ وَجِلَتۡ قُلُوبُہُمۡ
Certainly, the believers are those whose hearts are filled with awe when (the name of) Allah is mentioned; (Surah Al-Anfal: Part of Ayah No.2)
