On one occasion, an argument transpired between Sayyiduna Rabee‘ah Aslami (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). During the course of the argument, Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) happened to utter something, against Sayyiduna Rabee‘ah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), which he regretted immediately thereafter.

Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) instantly said to him, “O Rabee‘ah! Say those words back to me in retaliation!” However, Sayyiduna Rabee‘ah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) refused to do so. Hearing his refusal, Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “You must say those words to me, or else I will refer the matter to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!” Even then, Sayyiduna Rabee‘ah refused to repeat the words and retaliate against Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then departed, proceeding to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), with Sayyiduna Rabee‘ah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) following behind.

In the interim, some members of the Aslam clan (the family of Sayyiduna Rabee‘ah [radhiyallahu ‘anhu]), having observed what had transpired, came to him and said, “May Allah Ta‘ala have mercy on Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! Why is he complaining to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) about you, whereas he is the one who uttered the statement against you?”

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

My beloved friends! Value and appreciate the time which you have, and abstain from speaking unnecessarily.

We should all have the wish in our hearts that Allah Ta‘ala should bless all the various efforts of Deen, which are taking place in the world, with prosperity and allow them to succeed. Whether it is the masaajid, the madaaris or the maraakiz - the more efforts you make du‘aa for, the more you will progress and be rewarded by Allah Ta‘ala.

It is difficult for one person to participate in all the various deeni efforts. However, through making du‘aa for the progress and success of all these efforts, you will have a share in all of them. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in his mubaarak hadeeth, “Actions are rewarded according to their intentions.” Hence, if one makes multiple intentions when carrying out a single action, he will receive the reward for all the intentions which he made. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Shaikh 2/119)

Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates the following incident:

Among the Sahaabah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was a man of the Ansaar known as Sayyiduna Abu Mi’laq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). He was a businessman who would do business in various lands and regions using his own wealth and wealth which was invested by others. Together with being a competent businessman, Abu Sayyiduna Mi’laq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would engage in (excessive) ‘ibaadah and was also very pious.

One day, while Sayyiduna Abu Mi’laq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was travelling to some place, he was accosted by a thief. The thief, who was clad from head to toe in armour, said to him, “Give up all your wealth, for I am going to kill you!” Sayyiduna Abu Mi’laq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) responded, “Why do you want to kill me? Just take the money!” The thief replied, “As far as the money is concerned then it is certainly mine. However, I am determined to kill you!”

Sayyiduna Abu Mi’laq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “If you insist on killing me, then allow me to first perform four rakaats of salaah.” The thief obliged and said, “Perform salaah as you wish.”

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

This path of self-reformation leading to Allah Ta‘ala is extremely sensitive. Therefore, it is necessary for one to have a spiritual guide who is completely acquainted with the path. At times, a person does not understand the limits and begins to continuously grieve over his past sins to such an extent that he loses hope. This then becomes an impediment and barrier for him to progress. Therefore, it is necessary for one to refer to a spiritual guide. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/378-379)

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

The zikr of Allah Ta‘ala is like a fortress which protects one from the evil of the shayaateen. Hence, whenever one goes to a town or city for tableegh, then apart from propagating deen, one should also engage in zikr. In proportion to the evil of the environment, one should increase his zikr so that he may remain safe from the evil influences of shayaateen, jinn and people. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 52)
