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)

‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Ziyaad bin An‘um (rahimahullah) reports:

Once, while Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) was seated with some of his followers, Iblees arrived, clad in a cloth which continued to change colour. As he drew near, he removed the cloth, and thereafter approached Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam).

On meeting Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam), he greeted him with salaam. Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) asked him, “Who are you?” He replied, “I am Iblees.” Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) responded, “In that case, you are not welcomed. Nevertheless, why have you come here?” Iblees replied, “I have come to greet you, on account of your esteemed rank and position by Allah Ta‘ala.”

Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) then asked him, “What was that cloth (which I saw you wearing)?” Iblees replied, “It is that through which I trap the hearts of people (due to its glitter and attraction).” Hearing this, Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) asked Iblees, “Which are those evil deeds which are such that if a person commits them, you are then able to easily overpower him?” Iblees answered, “When a person becomes filled with pride and self-admiration, and he regards his good actions as being abundant, and he forgets his sins, then I overpower him.”

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

Reciting one’s dhor of the Qur’aan Majeed in one’s nafl salaah can greatly help one to remember the Qur’aan. I have experienced this personally and many of my friends have also witnessed this.

From the number of paras which one has memorized, one should take a minimum of half a para daily and recite it once or twice while looking into the Qur’aan Majeed. Thereafter, one should try to recite the same portion throughout the day and night in one’s nafl salaah such as awwaabeen, tahajjud, etc. One should at least recite the portion once or twice. This practice is proven to be extremely effective in remembering and preserving the Qur’aan Majeed. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 459)

The Value of Istiqaamah

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

If a person is punctual and consistent on his ma’moolaat (i.e. after fulfilling all the faraa-idh, waajibaat and sunan actions of Deen), then this is such a great achievement that even if he does not introduce any new nafl aa’maal into his life, it will not harm him and he will still progress. The reason is that remaining punctual on one’s ma’moolaat is known as ‘istiqaamah’ (steadfastness), and the Akaabir have clearly mentioned that istiqaamah is even greater than a miracle. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/233)
