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

The Muslims can only gain power and rulership in the earth through them constantly remaining obedient to Allah Ta‘ala and fulfilling His commands. It is logical that if a person wants to gain a favour from someone, then he is more likely to receive it through pleasing the person than through displeasing the person. When one understands that supreme authority and power lie in the hands of Allah Ta‘ala, then if the Muslims wish to gain power and rulership, they should constantly remain obedient to Allah Ta‘ala and turn to Him at all times. How strange it is that people regard following the laws of Shari’ah to be a cause for their retrogression, and regard breaking the laws of Shari’ah to be a cause for their progress. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 5/350)

Service to Others

Nowadays, we are so caught up in our busy lives and in accomplishing our daily tasks that very little attention is paid to serving others. We need to change this and try to cultivate in ourselves and in our children the desire to serve others. It should become one’s ambition to invest one’s free time in serving others. We should regard serving our parents as a source of perpetual reward.

Our children should not feel ashamed of doing household chores. They should cheerfully carry out the instructions of their parents at all times. They should be trained to give preference to others over themselves. At all times the comfort and wellbeing of others should be considered.

Youngsters should respect the senior members of the family and be willing to assist them. They should not feel embarrassed to clean the house and their surroundings with their own hands. Helping the poor, mercy towards the weak and removal of harmful objects from the pathway should become natural to them.

Shaikh Abur Rabee’ (rahimahullah) relates the following incident: 
 
I once heard of a very pious lady by the name of Fidh-dhah who lived in a certain village. This woman, Fidh-dhah, was rapidly gaining fame as word of an amazing phenomenon regarding her spread among people. Although we do not visit women, due to the necessity to investigate and ascertain the reality and authenticity of this rumour, I took a group of people and travelled to her village. 
 
On arriving in the village and making enquiries, the people of the village informed us that Fidh-dhah possessed a she goat that yielded both milk and honey. Hearing this, we bought a brand new bowl and proceeded to her home.

Fights due to Wealth

On several occasions Hazrat Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to quote Hazrat Moulana Abul Hasan ‘Ali Nadwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih),

“It is our first-hand experience that whenever a family starts progressing from a worldly perspective in wealth and material, this is the beginning of its collapse. They become the victims of fitnah and corruption. Too much of wealth is not suitable for us. There is ‘aafiyah (safety) in poverty and simplicity.”

After mentioning this, Qari Siddeeq Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to say that Hazrat Moulana (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) has spoken the truth. I have also seen this happen with my own eyes. Look at the condition of Baroli and Hatora. As long as there was poverty in Baroli, no one knew what fighting meant. Now that wealth is pouring in abundance, look at what has happened. Enmity for one another has increased. People are killing one another. Up to this day they are still killing one another. Hundreds of thousands of Rupees have been spent on court cases. (Hayaat-e-Siddeeq, pg. 40)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once advised a person saying: In order for you to acquire focus and remain composed at all times, it will be necessary for you to make a timetable, allocating time for each responsibility. Thereafter, if you adhere strictly to your timetable, you will be able to easily complete all your various works with complete ease and undivided attention. Over time, working in this manner will become your second nature. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 387)
