Once Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

A complete and perfect person is one who is soaked in ‘Ilm and conducts himself with adab (etiquette). Our pious predecessors were a combination of both. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 10/ 49)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned: “If one does not discharge one’s zakaat from one’s wealth, then that zakaat eventually will destroy the entire wealth, either by a fire burning it, or by being spent in court cases, or on medical expenses or some other unnecessary purposes. On the other hand, if one discharges the zakaat, then Allah Ta'ala will bless one with barkah in one’s wealth and the wealth will not decrease.” (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/39)

Fulfilling a Debt is a Means of Ease

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaih) once said: “If you are compelled to take a loan then ensure that you have the intention to pay back the loan at the time the loan is due. When the appointed time approaches, then immediately settle the debt (even if it means that you have to take another loan to settle the current loan). Remember, if one’s heart is clean and ones intention is to pay back the loan at its due time, then Allah Ta'ala will certainly assist him. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/23)

Submit through Love and Fear

PrintE-mail

Wednesday, 06 August 2014 15:10

The love and the fear of Allah Ta‘ala are two such gifts that will bring alive the treasure of submission in our lives. With the absence of love and fear, a person may be tempted to object and to reject the command of Allah Ta‘ala and the sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He will be subjected to doubts and misgivings. Thus he will begin to question the deen of Allah Ta‘ala based on his own logic and reasoning. Often people question the deen of Allah Ta‘ala, thinking that they are very intelligent, whereas in reality they are revealing their ignorance and foolishness. Thus, it is the love and fear of Allah Ta‘ala that will clear all doubts, and will pave the pathway to complete submission to the beautiful deen of Allah Ta‘ala.

   

Inspirational Advice

Respect – The Stairway to Progress

Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah) said: “I never stretched out my legs in the direction of my teacher Imaam Hammaad’s (rahimahullah) house, out of respect for him. This is despite the fact that there were seven side streets between my house and his house. Every salaah that I offered after Imaam Hammaad passed away, I sought forgiveness for him together with my parents. I certainly seek forgiveness for all those under whom I studied or all those who taught me something.”

Imaam Abu Yusuf (rahimahullah), the leading student of Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah), said: “I certainly supplicate for Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah) even before I supplicate for my parents. And I heard Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah) saying: ‘I certainly supplicate for Imaam Hammaad (rahimahullah) together with my parents.’” (Risaalatul Mustarshideen pg. 203)

Lesson: One of the many great values which are nowadays becoming extinct is respect. Among the many forms of respect is showing respect to those who impart deen to us and are a means of us becoming more committed to the commands of Allah Ta‘ala. This includes the Aapa who taught us in the maktab, the Moulana who tutored us thereafter, the Imaam of our local musjid, every Aalim of deen or scholar of the past. No matter what strides we make in life, we will always be indebted to these individuals. How irrational it is that today a person does some “research” on the internet, watches a few You-Tube videos and then considers himself to be eligible to challenge scholars who have spent decades in learning and imparting deen.

 

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.
