Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahimahullah), the reviver of the effort of tableegh, was once invited to a tableeghi gathering in Muzaffarnagar. On arrival in Muzaffarnagar, he observed that the people who invited him had brought elephants to the station as they wished to form a ‘procession’ to escort him to the gathering. Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) objected and explained that traveling in this manner was against the fundamental principles of the effort of tableegh. Hence, Moulana (rahimahullah) sat in an ordinary horse carriage and reached his residence.

As planned, the tableeghi gathering commenced, only for Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) to learn, shortly after, that Moulana Sayyid Husain Ahmad Madani (rahimahullah) was delivering a lecture in another gathering nearby. Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) immediately cancelled his lecture and instructed those present saying, “Moulana Madani (rahimahullah) has come. Everybody should go to that gathering and listen to his lecture.”

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah) selected five ahaadeeth from five hundred thousand ahaadeeth. These five ahaadeeth are such that through practising on them, one will be practising on the entire Deen.

After Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah), Imaam Abu Dawood (rahimahullah) selected four thousand eight hundred ahaadeeth from five hundred thousand ahaadeeth and compiled them into his kitaab, Sunan Abi Dawood. From these ahaadeeth four thousand eight hundred ahaadeeth which he compiled into his kitaab, he selected four ahaadeeth and stated that the one who practises on them will be practising upon the entire Deen. All these four ahaadeeth are among the five ahaadeeth that Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah) had selected. Imaam Abu Dawood (rahimahullah) did not select the fifth hadeeth as he understood that the meaning of the fifth hadeeth can be included in the other four ahaadeeth.

Unity in Difference

Hazrat Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to say that differences of opinion in those days were not like how it is today. Nowadays if we have a difference of opinion with someone then we drag his name, respect and honour to the gutters. There is absolutely no understanding and consideration for people left anymore. One does not even go to meet or speak with his counterparts. A veil is thrown over all his good qualities.

Our elders were such that they maintained unity despite having a difference with others. They would show kindness and sympathy to one another, share in one another’s sadness and happiness. In this regard, Hazrat Qari Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentions the following incident,

From the Grapevine

We are often given “news” and information about people. On the basis of such “news” and information, we formulate opinions and perceptions in our minds about the people concerned. However, if the “news” is of a negative nature, it is compulsory to ignore it until it is verified and established to be true. To formulate negative opinions in our minds with regards to anybody upon hearing something which has not been verified is not permissible. In many cases these bits of information just come “from the grapevine” and have no truth in them. At times they are a mixture of half truths and distorted facts. Often it is pure misunderstanding and/or misinterpretation. Nevertheless, neither must one act on these bits of information without first establishing their authenticity, nor must one harbour ill-feelings or suspicion for any person on the basis of such information.

A businessman from Delhi once joined the Tableegh Jamaat and travelled to Sindh. On his return, he gave a report back to Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) of the manner in which the work was carried out. Thereupon, Hazrat Moulana mentioned the following:

“Friends! This work which Allah Ta‘ala has blessed us with (of striving in the path of Allah Ta‘ala and inviting people towards Deen) is a formula for subjugating the entire universe. The one who becomes loyal to Allah Ta‘ala, Allah Ta‘ala makes everything work out for him. If you continue to fulfil Allah Ta‘ala’s commandments and remain obedient to Him, He will cause the sky, the earth, the winds and everything in the universe to be subservient to you. When you have made such sacrifices, that you have left your homes and businesses to come out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala, you will witness, with your own eyes, the immense barakah that Allah Ta‘ala will bless you with in your lives and businesses. Continue to serve the Deen of Allah Ta‘ala and have hope in receiving His Divine help and mercy. Never ever lose hope in His Divine help and mercy. The one who loses hope in Allah Ta‘ala’s Divine help and mercy is a sinner and a total loser in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala.” (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 90)
