This is an account given by Maulana Ilyas (rahmatullahi 'alayhi)'s son, Maulana Yusuf, of the last words spoken to him by his father.

On Wednesday near 4 o'clock (at night), Hadhrat (Rahmatullah 'Alayhi) was lying in his bed with me sitting on his right side. (May Allah grant us perfect mercy in this world and the Hereafter and may He grant us the ability to follow in Hadhrat's footsteps properly.) He called me and I went to sit on his left side facing him.

Amr bin Awf (R.A.) relates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) : "I do not fear poverty for you (the Ummah) but what I really fear is that the worldly wealth may be increased for you as it was increased for those before you. Hence you will compete with one another for the world just as those before you competed with one another for it. It will then destroy you just as it destroyed them" (Sahih Bukhari).
   

Vulgarity

A Mu'min (Believer) is one who displays the highest akhlaq (character). Thus, he will rid himself of all evil qualities. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has highlighted some of these evil qualities when he declared: "A Believer does not taunt others, or curse people, or indulge in vulgar or obscene talk" (Tirmizi).

A Mu'min's heart, and tongue are both clean. He does not think of vulgar or obscene things nor does he express such things with his tongue. It is therefore tragic that some people take pride in using vulgar language. This is far from the akhlaq of a Believer. We should adopt the akhlaq of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), that most exemplary personality who was never vulgar or obscene.

"What is the way to salvation?" This was the very concise question that Hazrath Uqba bin Aamir (R.A.) posed to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).  Subhanallah! This was the main concern of the Sahabah (R.A.) — how to gain salvation from the fitnas (evil and mischief) of this world as well as the torments of the Hereafter. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) gave a most concise reply to the concise question. He said: "Control your tongue, let your house be sufficient for you and cry over your sins (Targheeb)." This is an all time remedy for remaining safe from the fitnas of this world and the next.

Imagine the following scene. You have your hard earned capital to invest. You go for advice to an experienced person who is an expert in the field. The expert says to you: "If only you knew what profits you will earn if you invest in that business, you would put all your money into it." What will be your reaction? You would certainly rush to do so. Everyone naturally would heed the advice of an expert since we all want the maximum profits.
