Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once advised a person saying: In order for you to acquire focus and remain composed at all times, it will be necessary for you to make a timetable, allocating time for each responsibility. Thereafter, if you adhere strictly to your timetable, you will be able to easily complete all your various works with complete ease and undivided attention. Over time, working in this manner will become your second nature. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 387)

Fights due to Wealth

On several occasions Hazrat Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to quote Hazrat Moulana Abul Hasan ‘Ali Nadwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih),

“It is our first-hand experience that whenever a family starts progressing from a worldly perspective in wealth and material, this is the beginning of its collapse. They become the victims of fitnah and corruption. Too much of wealth is not suitable for us. There is ‘aafiyah (safety) in poverty and simplicity.”

After mentioning this, Qari Siddeeq Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to say that Hazrat Moulana (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) has spoken the truth. I have also seen this happen with my own eyes. Look at the condition of Baroli and Hatora. As long as there was poverty in Baroli, no one knew what fighting meant. Now that wealth is pouring in abundance, look at what has happened. Enmity for one another has increased. People are killing one another. Up to this day they are still killing one another. Hundreds of thousands of Rupees have been spent on court cases. (Hayaat-e-Siddeeq, pg. 40)

Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb’s (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) tolerance levels were such that if a person who had harmed him came to him with some need, he would fulfil that need with great happiness.

An individual whose needs were generally seen to by Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once became displeased with him due to some reason and began to oppose Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) behind his back. He tried ganging up with other members to gain some support. After some months, the same individual came back to Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) and expressed his need for some money which he could not acquire from anywhere else. Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), without showing any form of displeasure, gave him the required amount and did not mention a single word to him. (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 108)

Once, Hazrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) was performing salaah on the railway platform with some of his companions when suddenly the whistle blew for the train to go. All his companions broke their salaah and ran into the train but Hazrat (rahmatullahi alaih) continued his salaah with great ease and calmness. After performing his salaah, he made du‘aa and then boarded the train. When his companions asked him, “How is it that when we heard the whistle, we broke our salaah and ran inside but you continued with your salaah so peacefully?” He replied, “If I heard the whistle I would have also broken my salaah and ran into the train.”

Subhanallah! Such was the level of the salaah of Hazrat Moulana Madani (rahmatullahi alaih).

(Hazrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 177)

   

Have a Good Thought

We all understand that backbiting is forbidden. Likewise we must remember that to even have an ill-thought of someone is also forbidden. We may be sitting all alone in the protection of our homes, but if our mind has to deliberately think that such and such a friend is a very sulky person, then that thought is forbidden. It is a sin to deliberately even think evil of someone.

What we fail to realize is that ill-thoughts give rise to ill-feelings and hatred; which in turn disunites our hearts. With the disunity of hearts there will always be fears, doubts, suspicion, fights and arguments. On the other hand, if we start thinking good of others, it will generate love and unity. Our hearts will be at ease enjoying great peace and harmony. Our thoughts become our words and actions which in turn develop into habits, which ultimately becomes our character and life. Let us strive to think good of others and in-turn enjoy a happy life.

It was the noble habit of Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) to always remain in a state of wudhu.

When involved in any form of ‘ibaadah, Hazrat Mufti Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) ensured that he fulfilled every adab and sunnah of that ‘ibaadah. For example, if he was performing salaah, then he would recite the qiraat in accordance to the sunnah, thereafter the rukoo’, sajdah and all the other postures would follow in complete adherence to the sunnah.

(Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) – His life and works, pg. 116)

A Clean Heart Draws Divine Assistance

Shaikh Abur Rabee’ (rahimahullah) relates the following incident: 
 
I once heard of a very pious lady by the name of Fidh-dhah who lived in a certain village. This woman, Fidh-dhah, was rapidly gaining fame as word of an amazing phenomenon regarding her spread among people. Although we do not visit women, due to the necessity to investigate and ascertain the reality and authenticity of this rumour, I took a group of people and travelled to her village. 
 
On arriving in the village and making enquiries, the people of the village informed us that Fidh-dhah possessed a she goat that yielded both milk and honey. Hearing this, we bought a brand new bowl and proceeded to her home.
