According to scientists, environmental pollution is among the most serious problems facing humanity today. This is especially significant since the adverse effect of environmental pollution affects people directly, yet they often do not even realize it. For example, people breathe air that is heavily polluted with nitrogen dioxide given off by cars, planes and factories which causes severe respiratory problems. Yet while breathing it, they do not realize what harm they have caused to themselves. If the exposure to the pollution was minimal, over time the immune system will clear the body of the harmful effects of the pollution. However, if the exposure is excessive, it may overpower the immune system or even kill it, eventually resulting in one’s death.

When Allah Ta’ala decides that any work take place then He creates the means for its fulfilment. The completion of that work is not dependant on any person. Rather, Allah Ta’ala, out of His infinite power, will use whichever person He so wishes for its completion. Therefore, one should place his trust and reliance upon Allah Ta’ala alone. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 4/152)

Once, a student was running towards the musjid for salaah. Hazratjee, Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), called him and asked him where he was going to. He replied that he was going to the musjid. Immediately Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) reprimanded him saying, “Are you going to the musjid in this manner?”
In this beautiful manner he showed this student that, when going to the threshold of the king, then go with extreme dignity and respect. One cannot run and go in this manner. (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saaheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 88)

The sky is commanded to bring down the rains. The ground is commanded to bring forth the crops, the fruit and the flowers. The bees are inspired to move from tree to tree producing honey for you and me. The cows are grazing from pasture to pasture in order to provide us fresh milk. The sheep and chickens are prepared to lay down their lives for us. The entire system of the world is in place to serve us. We have been created to serve one Allah Ta‘ala.
A dog is prepared to sacrifice its life just for its master, a master who provides it some leftover food. The moment it sees its master, it is at the feet of the master, wagging its tail and awaiting the master’s instruction. As human beings, we are the noblest of all creation, blessed with the gift of intelligence and showered with unlimited bounties. When a dog is so grateful and loyal to its master for the leftover food it is given, how much more grateful and obedient should we be to our one Allah Ta‘ala who blessed us with everything. Our intelligence demands that we recognize our bountiful Allah Ta‘ala and in turn we become thankful and obedient servants of Allah Ta‘ala.

Hazrat Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned:
Ikhlaas (sincerity) cannot be created by itself and if, perchance it is created, it will not remain unless one keeps the company of those who have ikhlaas. Not keeping the company of those who work with ikhlaas, makes it impossible to attain ikhlaas and even if perchance one did attain it, then it would not remain with him.
If you really want to become sincere and save yourselves from destruction, then establish a ta’alluq (connection) with Allah Ta‘ala’s pious and righteous servants. Through their barakah, ikhlaas will be created in you. (Hayaat-e-Siddeeq, pg. 399)

When the azaan for Zuhr Salaah would go, Hazratjee Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) would stop all his work, relieve himself and perform his Zuhr sunnats at home. Thereafter he would go to the musjid to perform the salaah.
Even when he was old and weak and could not manage walking to the musjid himself, he would still make it a point of attending the jamaat, taking the support of two people. In this way he practiced on the sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saaheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 101)
