Why Jazakallah ..

Posted on: Tuesday, April 21, 2009

All of you who have been following my blog (although I have been quite nonexistent since awhile) knows what brought me to write about this post. Its yet an another question answered, yet a deed done in hopes of guiding someone back to Islam (Inshallah).

As can be imagined by Muslimah’s mingling and talking, we dont use use much ofย  ‘Thank You’ and rather say ‘Jazakallah’ even for the smallest imaginable help. This caught attention of one of my non-muslim friends and dare I say some of my Muslim friends as well who knew this word existed but never thought of its meaning, until now.

“Why Jazakallah Mayam ? Couldn’t you just say ‘Thank you’ ? Whats so special about it ?’ was the question raised by her. My heart broke into all smiles, what a wonderful opportunity of explaining yet an another trait of Islam. “It means the same as ‘Thank you’ does, only much better’. I replied.ย  ‘Why would you say that ?’ she asked with a frown on her face .. ‘Well !! The beauty of this word lies in understand its meaning.’ I continued ‘When we say ‘Thank you’, we obviously intend to let others know how much we appreciate their help. And thats the end of story. But there more to it with Jazakallah Khairun. When we utter this word, we imply not only that we appreciate your help, but also that we dont believe we could ever repay you for the help you offered and leave it on our Lord Allah to reward you with the very best’.’WOW ..!!! That’s a real good thought. Definitely more than a mere ‘Thank you’ … Wanna grab a cup of coffee’ and there we went.

What fascinates me the most is by what amount your deeds/actions could grab someone’s attention. Turns out 6 out of 10 reverts were spellbound with Islam by simply observing Muslim’s practicing Islam, which ultimately led them to embrace Islam and discover its beauty on their own. Who knows, Maybe someday Inshallah we would guide someone back to Islam as well (Ameen), the reward of which would be of utmost importance in this world and in the hereafter.

P.S : Just a note guys, I am back and so will be my posts Inshallah. Stay tuned for more about Islam .. ๐Ÿ™‚
