[They] pass the night [in adoration] for their Lord- Who are they? Speech Excerpt


 
Hazrat Maulana Shafee Okarvi 
[Rahmatul Laahi Alaieh]
excerpt- Speech Translation
abdul qaadir,
Allaah Kareem says in the Holy Qur'aan, in the 25th Soorah, al-Furqaan: Verse 64

[They] pass the night [in adoration] for their Lord

How do they spend it? in prostration and standing [qiyaam]

The rest of the world is asleep and dreaming but the servants of the Merciful Allaah Kareem, His accepted servants, spend their nights, for Allaah Kareem, soaked in His love, praying salaah, standing [qiyaam], bowing [ruku] and prostrating [sajdaa].
The reality is this that because of these worshipful and pondering or reflecting [fikr] servants this world retains stability and we are saved from the punishment of Allaah Almighty. There is a Sacred Tradition Hadees e Qudsi in which Allaah Taa’alaa says:
When My servants commit evil deeds, sin and are disobedient then My punishment comes into action, but when I see My thankful worshipful servants, those that perform night vigils [tahajjud], wake up at night and cry, put their heads in prostration before Me, and plead deliverance from sins and forgiveness: Then I look at them and I recall My punishment even from the disobedient. ….
