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)

Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb’s (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) tolerance levels were such that if a person who had harmed him came to him with some need, he would fulfil that need with great happiness.

An individual whose needs were generally seen to by Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once became displeased with him due to some reason and began to oppose Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) behind his back. He tried ganging up with other members to gain some support. After some months, the same individual came back to Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) and expressed his need for some money which he could not acquire from anywhere else. Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), without showing any form of displeasure, gave him the required amount and did not mention a single word to him. (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 108)

   

Bearing the Burdens of Others

One of the greatest privileges and favours which ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) enjoyed from Allah Ta‘ala was that he was raised in the care of none other than Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The circumstances which led to him entering the care of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) are as follows:

Before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was blessed with prophethood, there was a period during which the Quraish and the other people of Makkah Mukarramah suffered a severe drought. In this difficult period, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) noticed that his uncle, Abu Taalib, had many dependents, and due to the drought, it was difficult for him to provide for them all. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) thus went to his other uncle, ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was very wealthy, and said, “O ‘Abbaas, my uncle! Your brother, Abu Taalib, has many dependents, and as you can see, people have been afflicted by the drought. Let us approach him and offer to lessen his burden by each of us taking one of his dependents into our care.”

Once, Hazrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) was performing salaah on the railway platform with some of his companions when suddenly the whistle blew for the train to go. All his companions broke their salaah and ran into the train but Hazrat (rahmatullahi alaih) continued his salaah with great ease and calmness. After performing his salaah, he made du‘aa and then boarded the train. When his companions asked him, “How is it that when we heard the whistle, we broke our salaah and ran inside but you continued with your salaah so peacefully?” He replied, “If I heard the whistle I would have also broken my salaah and ran into the train.”

Subhanallah! Such was the level of the salaah of Hazrat Moulana Madani (rahmatullahi alaih).

(Hazrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 177)
