Haqqul Yaqeen's Personal Essay: Need Ideas

Recommended Posts

:sl: /Greetings to all

 

So me and sister haqqul yaqeen were discussing what subject she could write about in her essay. It must reflect something personal, in other words, it's a personal statement in the form of an essay. So far we've come up with the following ideas (not many as you can see):

 

1) Sincerity and insincerity (how people act different at home and outside, i.e private Vs public)

 

2) "Be the change you want to see in the world"... to see improvements in others, one must become an example first.

 

Your ideas and suggestions will be much appreciated :no:

 

Thank you and :j: brothers and sisters

:D sisters!!

 

Hm well, I'd like to see something along the lines of hope and tawakull, :no:

 

How hardships and pains represent a fertile ground for cultivating ourselves, IF we let them and consign our affairs to our Creator, that is...

 

just off the top of my head.. :D I get more ideas soon

 

Whatever the topic I'm sure it'll be a very interesting and benficial read :D

:j: sisters! I love you girls for Allah's sake!

 

I just hope I can think of some personal experience to tie with one of those topics - that's what the colleges want and that's what's driving me crazy!

If you are the person who wrote down a while ago an essay about ranting than you should do a paper about optimism Vs pessimism.

:j: everyone. Inshaa'Allah I've decided to write it about inferiority. People may think that because you're a Muslim in the west, you should feel inferior to others. They're wrong. And that's my topic inshaa'Allah.

 

If you want to see my essay, PM me.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

 

Here are some more ideas in my mind. Hope it is not to late, yet.

 

1. Inferiority Complex, Superiority Complex

2. Ikhlaas

3. People love each other for the interests of this world

4. Self-Esteem, Confidence, Self-Indulgence, Egoism

5. Ilmu-Yaqeen, A'ainu-Yaqeen, and Haqqul-Yaqeen

6. Taufeeq, Tawakkul, Barakah

7. Fulfill All your means in this world then invoke Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

8. Rizq Management Dunya and Akhira

9. Times of Hardship is followed by times of Ease

10. Do we know what we are living for?

Wow I didn't know that, who thinks Muslims should feel like that? (Or do I have to wait like everyone else? :sl: )

Peace,

 

These are known as the three stages of certainty.

 

1) Ilmu-Yaqeen- Knowledge of certainty is knowing that there is a certainty.

 

2) A'ainu-Yaqeen- The eye of certainty is discovering the source of certainty.

 

3) Haqqul-Yaqeen- The truth of certainty is the manifestation of the certain vision into reality.

 

A scholar once described the concept to me as the following: 1) You are told there is a festival in the town centre. 2) You reach the town centre and see the festival for yourself. 3) You are part of the festival in the town centre.

 

With peace.

One sheikh explained haqqul yaqeen in a very interesting way. He said to the extent of:

 

"I used to live in Egypt. When I lived there, I knew about skyscrapers in New York City. I knew they existed. I had no doubt in my mind. I was CERTAIN that they existed.

 

So I had 'ilmul yaqeen ("Knowledge of Certainty"). Do you think there is a chance I could still be more certain about their existence?

 

Well, I came to NYC and I saw the skyscrapers with my own eyes. Of course now I was more certain that they existed.

 

Now I had 'aynul yaqeen ("Sight of Certainty"). I can't be any more sure about their existence than that, right? I mean, come on, I saw them with my own eyes!!

 

Most people would think, "Of course not! You can't be any more sure than that!"

 

BUT there is a small little chance that my eyes decieved me, right? So believe it or not, 'aynul yaqeen isn't the highest level of certainty.

 

It is when I stepped into one of the skyscrapers, and actually had an experience inside it, that I was 100% CERTAIN skyscrapers existed.

 

Now, I had haqqul yaqeen ("Truth of Certainty").

 

THIS is the highest level of certainty.

 

Now apply all this talk of skyscrapers into the Akhira (afterlife), Heaven, and Hell."

Ok I'll give it a go...

 

The people who are still living in this world have 'ilmul yaqeen ("Knowledge of Certainty"), as we have been informed about Akhira in the Quran and the Hadiths, as well to some extent the other scriptures, and have been taught about it since young. We know about it, but because we have not actually it seen with our own eyes our knowledge is the only certainty.

 

The people who have passed away and are in the state of Barzakh, can see their place in Akhira, either Paradise or Hellfire. Now they have seen it, so they have 'aynul yaqeen ("Sight of Certainty").

 

Finally, when all of mankind is gathered on Qiyamah, and after Allah passes His verdict upon us, some will experience our place in Paradise, by enjoying the rewards, and others will be have to experience the punishments and torment of the Hellfire. At this stage, we have experienced Akhiraa, so there is 'haqqul yaqeen' ("Truth of Certainty").

 

P.S. Sis HY, hope all went well for your essay :j:. Could you send me the essay too? Thanks in advance... :no:

Couldn't have explained it better, brother.:j:

 

Also, these concepts are touched upon in Surah at Takathur too. (102)

  • Rivalry in worldly increase distracteth you

  • Until ye come to the graves. (ilmul yaqeen and *aynul yaqeen)

*The grave is a place where we will get a taste of what will lies ahead of us.

  • But nay, ye soon shall know (the reality). ( aynul yaqeen and ultimately haqqul yaqeen)

  • Nay, but ye will come to know! (aynul yaqeen)

  • Nay, would that ye knew (now) with a sure knowledge! (haqqul yaqeen)

  • For ye will behold hell-fire. (haqqul yaqeen)

  • Again, ye shall see it with certainty of sight! (aynul yaqeen)

  • Then, shall ye be questioned that Day about the joy (ye indulged in!).

Btw iI'd also love to read your essay too sis. :sl:

 

:no: in advance :D
