Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) mentioned:

On one occasion Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ya'qoob Saheb (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned that when a person gets married, generally it is noticed that he spends more time with his in-laws. In doing so, there is a fear that he does not observe the due rights of his own family members. Therefore one should be mindful in this regard that he maintains a balance and ensures he fulfils the rights he owes to both parties. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 1/71)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

In this era the Mashaayikh do not emphasise upon their disciples to make a lot of sacrifices. Though, when I was young, I used to see many pious people and Mashaayikh labour hard and render great sacrifices for deen. However, in this day and age, an easy prescription that we are taught is to focus towards the reformation of our hearts. One should protect one’s heart from sin and not allow his heart to be distracted and diverted from the obedience and remembrance of Allah Ta'ala. At all times one should protect his heart. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/110)

Inspirational Advice

In the Footsteps of Yusuf (‘alaihis salaam)

Sulaimaan bin Yasaar (rahimahullah) was an illustrious taabi‘ee, an outstanding jurist and a famous scholar of Madeenah Munawwarah. He had also been blessed with stunning beauty.

Once while on the journey to Hajj he camped at a place called Abwaa. A Bedouin woman caught sight of his beauty and was infatuated with him. Hence she came to his tent, uncovered her face which shone like a piece of the moon and tried to seduce him. He blankly refused but she advanced towards him. He immediately fled from the tent.

He says: “When I reached Makkah Mukarramah and completed my tawaaf and sa‘ee, slumber overcame me while I was sitting in the hateem. In this condition I saw an extremely handsome and well-dressed person in my dream, from whom a lovely scent was emanating. I asked: ‘May Allah Ta‘ala have mercy on you. Who are you?’ He answered: ‘I am Yusuf the son of Ya’qoob (‘alaihimas salaam).’ I said to him: ‘The incident of you protecting yourself from the seduction of Zulaikhaa is really amazing.’ He replied: ‘The story of the woman in Abwaa is even more amazing. I had some natural inclination towards Zulaikhaa (due to the dictates of being human, although I did not do anything wrong) but you did not have the slightest inclination towards that woman.’” (Hilyatul Awliyaa vol. 2, pg. 218 and Siyarus Salaf lil Isfahaani – Aa’yaanul Hujjaaj pg. 134)

Lesson: At times one may be facing a similar situation where a person of the opposite gender is trying to seduce one either verbally or through an ‘invite’ on some social network. One must be extremely firm and follow in the footsteps of Yusuf (‘alaihis salaam). Allah Ta‘ala will really appreciate this ‘sacrifice’ and reward one in this very life together with the great rewards and pleasures that will be in store for him in the Hereafter.

 

Lessons from the Lives of the Pious

Eagerness for Ramadhaan and Receiving it

Moulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) writes:

The month of Ramadhaan marks the commencement of the revelation of the Quraan. It is the month of mercy, blessings and effulgence. Ramadhaan is indeed the prime period for ‘ibaadat and righteous actions and the all-embracing event of spirituality.

Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) mentioned: “During the month of Ramadhaan, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would always be ahead in good deeds, much faster than a strong blowing wind.”

Hadhrat ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) said: “When the last ten days of Ramadhaan would commence, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would remain the entire night awake and he would awaken his household as well. He would exert himself in carrying out ‘ibaadat.”

The month of Ramadhaan is the time for the fulfilment of the aspirations and hopes of the true lovers of Allah Ta‘ala, for which they would count the number of days to the approach of this month. We are not speaking about the state of the former pious predecessors. I have heard regarding some of the pious predecessors of the recent past that they would anticipate the approach of the next Ramadhaan from the moment the crescent of ‘Eid was sighted.
