An Extremely Important Advice in regard to Dealing with Wives


Monday, 25 February 2019 11:37

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following advice to one of his close associates:

An extremely important advice in regard to dealing with wives is that one should avoid adopting a hard approach with one’s wife. Rather, always adopt a soft approach with the wife and continue to encourage her in Deeni matters. Conduct daily ta’leem from Fazaail-e-Aa’maal and Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat with the wife and family, and if you hear stories of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) or the pious, you should relate it to your family at home. Insha-Allah, this will prove extremely beneficial for their guidance. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 423-424)

‘Umaarah bin Hazm (rahimahullah) narrates the following incident from Sayyiduna Ubayy bin Ka’b (radhiyallahu ‘anhu):

On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) sent me to collect the zakaat that was due on the people’s wealth. While collecting zakaat from the people, I passed by a Sahaabi who also needed to discharge his zakaat. Accordingly, this Sahaabi gathered all his camels and presented them to me so that I could calculate the zakaat due on the camels. After examining the camels, I determined that his zakaat on the camels amounted to a single one-year old she-camel.

I thus said to him, “You need to discharge a single one-year old she-camel as this is the zakaat due on your camels.” Hearing this, the man replied, “A one-year old she camel neither gives milk, nor can it be used as a conveyance (hence, there is very little benefit in it). Instead of a one-year old she camel, here is a young, strong, large and fat she camel. Take this camel.” I replied, “I cannot take that which I was not instructed to take. However, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is nearby. If you wish to go to him and present to him what you presented to me, you may do so. If Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) accepts your offer (to give a better camel in zakaat), I will take the camel from you, but if he does not accept your offer, I will not take the camel.”

The World – the Jannah of the Kuffaar


Monday, 18 February 2019 14:37

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in his mubaarak hadeeth:

الدنيا سجن المؤمن وجنة الكافر

The dunya is the prison of a believer and the paradise of a disbeliever

The meaning of this hadeeth is that our purpose for being sent to this world is not to fulfill our desires and make this world our paradise. Rather, our purpose for being sent to this world is to remain obedient to the commands of Allah Ta‘ala and oppose our desires which lead us towards His disobedience. In this way, the restrictions on our nafs are resembled to a prison. However, if we begin to emulate the kuffaar in obeying our nafs and following our desires, we will be no different to the kuffaar who obey their nafs and have made this world their paradise. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 34)

A well know Arabic saying advises, “Don't talk about a person. Ask about his companions.” This simply means that if you want to enquire about a person — about his character, what are his habits, is he responsible, etc., then do not enquire specifically about him. Instead enquire about the company he keeps. If he keeps good company, insha-Allah he will be likewise a good and upright person. On the contrary if he remains in the company of people accustomed to sin and vice or people of low character and morals, he will generally be judged accordingly.

Being More Concerned of One’s Reformation than the Reformation of Others


Monday, 11 February 2019 15:05

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

There is a great need for each person to be concerned about his own reformation and to correct his actions. Nowadays, we find that people have fallen into the sickness of worrying about other people’s weaknesses while they are unconcerned about their own reformation. This can be compared to a person who is more concerned about looking after the shoes of others while his own shoes and luggage get stolen due to him being unconcerned about them. How foolish is the action of such a person! (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/56)
