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

The remedy for casting lustful glances and other sins is for a person to regularly study the biographies of the pious. Additionally, one should allocate some time to sit in solitude and ponder over the numerous warnings and punishments mentioned in the Quraan Majeed and hadeeth for the sins that one is involved in. When the thought of sin crosses one’s mind, one should immediately remind oneself of these warnings and punishments. Through continuously doing this, insha-Allah the strong urge of the nafs to commit sins will no longer remain. Thereafter, at times, if one perceives a slight inclination to commit sin, one should adopt self-resistance and oppose this inclination. However, if a person does not take courage and show determination then there is no remedy for such a person. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/57)

(Haarithah bin Nu’maan [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] #3)

On the occasion when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performed hijrah to Madeenah Munawwarah, he sent for his family in Makkah Mukarramah so that they could also perform hijrah and join him in Madeenah Munawwarah.

In due course, the family members of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as well as Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Zaid bin Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), arrived from Makkah Mukarramah. On their arrival, it was Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who had the privilege of hosting them in his home.

Further, many of the houses in the close vicinity of the musjid belonged to Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). This Sahaabi had a heart of such generosity that one-by-one, he gave all his houses to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to use as residences for his blessed family.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Protect the boundaries of Allah Ta‘ala (by fulfilling His commands and refraining from what He has forbidden), you will find Him in front of you (at your assistance). Become acquainted with Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. become close to Him and develop a contact with Him by means of His obedience and constant remembrance) in ease, He will recognize you in times of difficulties.” (Musnad Ahmad #2803)

Whenever a problem arises, a person always tries to find a contact in “high places” to help him out of that difficulty. Allah Ta‘ala, the Most High, is thee contact and He alone can remove all difficulties. The biggest problem is that we have not developed our contact with Him, nor have we learnt to ask from Him. To develop this contact one will have to join the company of the pious, learned ones and learn the obedience and love of Allah Ta‘ala from them.

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

Making du‘aa is extremely important and I do not deny it’s significance in any way. However, it is important for one to understand that merely sufficing on du‘aa without making a concerted effort to improve one’s life is incorrect. One will not see improvement in one’s life through sufficing on du‘aa.

Allah Ta‘ala mentions in the Quraan Majeed:

قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللّٰهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللّٰهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللّٰهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ ﴿٣١﴾

O Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Say (to your Ummah), “If you (claim to) love Allah then follow me, (through following me,) Allah Ta‘ala will make you beloved to Him and forgive your sins, and Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

The Train of Life

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

Time can be likened to a moving train. The hours, minutes and moments of a person’s life are like the carriages and compartments that are moving swiftly with the train, while his activities and occupations are like the passengers in the compartments of the train. Unfortunately, what has now happened is that our various worldly pursuits have occupied all the compartments of the train and have left no place for our deeni activities and works. As believers, we are required to aim for the highest goals and objectives, and instead of involving ourselves in the insignificant pursuits of the world, we should endeavor to carry out deeni works which are pleasing to Allah Ta‘ala and which will assist us in building our Hereafter. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 31)
