No Exuce


Why is there no excuse in islam? No exuce in islam…

A Muslim who dearly wishes to serve on the path of Allah (JJ) can use no circumstance or condition as excuse. He looks to overcome every kind of hurdle.

Darqawi, a sheikh of the Shazali order, says:

“My master was about to send me to a tribe. I said to him:

‘Where I am going, there is not a single servant of Allah with whom I can have spiritual talks or hold conversation. I will be all alone…’

My master responded:

‘You will give birth to the people you need! (That is to say, you will find and raise them)’”

Another great example showing there is no excuse for serving physically, is Abu Bakr (RA). As a personal errand, he would milk the goats of his neighbours who were orphaned young girls. After he became caliph, his neighbours began to think:

“From all the running around he now needs to do, he will no longer have time for this!”

The noble caliph, however, did not change even in the slightest, as he continued to milk the goats every day.

These examples should serve as a lesson for those who cite the times and conditions as excuse, despite having the training and means to promote the good and prevent evil.

It is said that three types of people are distant from Allah (JJ):

  • The ignorant who flee from serving the truth fearing they will lose their comfort.
  • Those who fool themselves claiming they are too sensitive to go near people in pain and misery, saying “I cannot bear it”.
  • Those who take sides with tyrants.
