My Late Father


by Shaykh Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh

In 1991 Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh had to give up his teaching post at Darul Uloom Bury and move back to Leicester, the city in which he grew up. The reason why the respected Shaykh had to return was the demise of his father, Hāfiz Ibrāhīm Dhorat rahimahullāh.

Hāfiz Dhorat rahimahullāh was an extraordinary individual who was well loved and respected by all who knew him. He was from amongst those who held a lofty status in piety. That such a noble soul could exist in the twentieth century, leading a normal life in an inner city environment is proof of the vibrancy and power of Islām, and an encouraging example to the rest of us of how we too can lead exemplary lives.

So much so that many times his apparent good actions, though they may seem righteous to him and others, will not bear any fruit in the hereafter; rather they will have an adverse effect and lead to the displeasure of Allāh ta'ālā.

Take the example of a person performing salāh; his apparent action is good and of piety, but if his heart is not purified from riyā (ostentation), then this very salāh will cause the displeasure of Allāh ta'ālā. The hadīth of Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam directs us towards this very fact:
