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

On one occasion while I was seated in the musjid, it occurred to me that I required some small change. One person had some small change, therefore I handed over the notes to him and in return he gave me the change. Present nearby was one of my students, Moulana Muhammad Rashid Saheb. Witnessing this deal taking place in the musjid, he came up to me and asked me in an utmost respectful manner whether this deal falls under the ambit of a business transaction? At once I realized my mistake and thanked him for bringing it to my attention, and said that I did not realize that this was a business deal in sharee'ah (bay'us sarf) and thus impermissible to be transacted in the musjid. Thereafter I cancelled the deal by returning the small change to that person and took my money back. Subsequently, I asked that person to come out of the musjid and renew the transaction. Nevertheless, we went out of the musjid and I gave him the money while he gave me the change that I required. I was really pleased by the manner in which Moulana Muhammad Rashid Saheb conducted himself. It was necessary for him to inform me that the transaction is impermissible; however he expressed it with utmost respect by asking me whether it fell under the ambit of a sale or not.

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) said: "It is imperative that one shows paramount importance to one's zikr and daily practices. I had witnessed Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) and my beloved uncle (Moulana Ilyas Khandelwi) punctually carrying out their zikr despite their old age. Furthermore, I noticed my father and Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) being punctual upon their tahajjud in the early parts of the morning, sitting in isolation and crying bitterly beseeching Allah Ta'ala. They cried in the same way as a child in maktab cries when he is being reprimanded. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/112)

Inspirational Advice

Wash the Wounds Away

A man complained to ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah) of a boil on his knee since seven years. He said: “I have tried different treatments and consulted many doctors but nothing has helped.” ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah) replied: “Dig a well in a place where people are in need of water. I hope that as soon as water gushes out from there, the blood will stop oozing from your wound.” The man did so and was cured. (Shu‘abul Imaan #3109)

Lesson: While all types of sadaqah are effective in removing calamities and attracting the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, arranging water for those who are in need of it is one of the greatest forms of charity. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) even advised doing this as a form of thawaab jaariyah for the deceased.

 

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.
