Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

If a person is addressed by any of his seniors (e.g. his parents, ustaaz, shaikh, etc.), then it is extremely disrespectful for him to ignore the senior and intentionally not reply to him. Similarly, it is disrespectful for him to answer them with a delay as delaying in replying will cause them some type of inconvenience. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/82)

A Clean Heart

Imagine having a white bed sheet that is soiled with oil, blotted with ink and stained with paint... will we ever think of sleeping on such a sheet? The answer is definitely “NO!” Then, how is it ever possible to sleep with a heart smudged with hatred, burning in anger, drowning in jealousy?

Having a clean heart invites peace, happiness and contentment in our lives. It is only a clean heart that will allow the mercy, love and bond with Allah Ta‘ala to be established and strengthened.

We cannot afford to leave this world with a heart that is filled with dirt. It is as simple as forgiving, overlooking and cleaning our hearts of all evil at all times. Death may come to us at any time. Hence, we need to strive to leave this world and meet our Allah Ta‘ala with a heart that is clean and pure.

Surah Yaseen is indeed a unique surah, as it has been termed the ‘heart’ of the Quraan Majeed. Furthermore, reciting it once equals the reward of reciting the Quraan Majeed ten times. (Sunan Tirmizi #2887)

Sayyiduna Sa‘eed bin ‘Aamir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a Sahaabi of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who was well known for his austerity and disinterest in the dunya. Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had appointed him as the governor over Hims.

His disinterest in wealth was such that when he would receive his monthly stipend from the Baytul Maal, he would set aside the amount that his dependents required to fulfil their needs and would then give the remainder in sadaqah.

On one occasion, Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) came to the city of Hims and asked the residents how they found their governor, Sayyiduna Sa‘eed bin ‘Aamir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). The people responded by placing before Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) four complaints regarding their governor.
