Lessons from the Lives of the Pious

Assisting Others


Wednesday, 07 December 2016 14:21

Hazrat Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned regarding the people of his village, “It was a very excellent era. It was common for everyone to help and assist others. Everyone lived like brothers. They would all help and assist one another. Everyone would take part in each other’s happiness, sadness, weddings, functions, etc. Some servants of Allah Ta‘ala have made it their work to assist those in need.”

Qari Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following incident regarding one of the pious people from his family:

“He used to help everyone in purchasing their necessities. He would go to the bazaar with those who were needy and purchase their items for them. People used to come to him and express their needs. He would make an appointment with them and ensure that he would help them out. Some poor non-Muslims would also come to him and say, ‘My daughter is getting married. I have to purchase the jehez[1]. Come with me to buy it.’ He would even go with them to render his assistance. In this manner he would try and help everyone. The morning that he passed away, some people had come to his house since he had given them an appointment to take them to Baanda to buy their things. These poor people went back crying in grief for this great loss.” (Hayaat-e-Siddeeq, pg. 42)

[1] According to the custom in India, the bride’s father has to give the groom a large amount of gifts before he accepts the bride in his home. 


Respect for the Musjid

Once, a student was running towards the musjid for salaah. Hazratjee, Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), called him and asked him where he was going to. He replied that he was going to the musjid. Immediately Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) reprimanded him saying, “Are you going to the musjid in this manner?”

In this beautiful manner he showed this student that, when going to the threshold of the king, then go with extreme dignity and respect. One cannot run and go in this manner. (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saaheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 88)


How to become Sincere?

Hazrat Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned:

Ikhlaas (sincerity) cannot be created by itself and if, perchance it is created, it will not remain unless one keeps the company of those who have ikhlaas. Not keeping the company of those who work with ikhlaas, makes it impossible to attain ikhlaas and even if perchance one did attain it, then it would not remain with him.

If you really want to become sincere and save yourselves from destruction, then establish a ta’alluq (connection) with Allah Ta‘ala’s pious and righteous servants. Through their barakah, ikhlaas will be created in you. (Hayaat-e-Siddeeq, pg. 399)


Salaah with Jamaat


Thursday, 03 November 2016 09:53

When the azaan for Zuhr Salaah would go, Hazratjee Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) would stop all his work, relieve himself and perform his Zuhr sunnats at home. Thereafter he would go to the musjid to perform the salaah.

Even when he was old and weak and could not manage walking to the musjid himself, he would still make it a point of attending the jamaat, taking the support of two people. In this way he practiced on the sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saaheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 101)


Do not Fear, Allah Ta‘ala will Assist You

There was a person in Gangoh who narrated an incident about a murder that had taken place near their home. The family of the deceased furnished the name of his father as one of the suspects, whereas he was completely innocent. He further narrates;

“My father had ta‘alluq (association) with Hazrat Moulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) who advised him to follow the necessary legal routes and mentioned to him, ‘Do not fear, Allah Ta‘ala will help you.’ Hence, he continued until eventually the date for the case had drawn near. He came back to Hazrat Moulana Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) to inform him about the court case, but again Hazrat Moulana Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned to him, ‘Do not fear, Allah Ta‘ala will help you.’ He had come to Gangoh on foot. The next day when he went to court, the secretary informed him that it was decided that the culprits will be punished. When he asked if his name was also recorded therein, the secretary replied in the affirmative.
