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

The divine assistance and unseen help of Allah Ta‘ala is not based on any physical means, and is not such that one is able to determine the time and manner of its occurrence. However, at the time when a servant is helpless, he turns his complete focus to Allah Ta‘ala and relies on Allah Ta‘ala entirely, then from the hidden treasures of Allah Ta‘ala, he is divinely assisted. The precondition for receiving the divine assistance of Allah Ta‘ala is imaan and placing one’s entire reliance and complete trust on Allah Ta‘ala, and not placing one’s reliance on the material means of the world. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pgs. 105-106)

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

When a person takes someone as his Shaikh or Deeni guide, then in order for him to benefit from the Shaikh, he will have to fulfil three essential requirements. These three requirements are among the rights which he owes to the Shaikh and should be borne in mind at all times. These requirements are:

- He should have i’tiqaad in him i.e. he should have mahabbat and respect for him and accept him to be a pious, rightly guided person who follows the sunnah.

- He should have i’timaad in him i.e. he should have confidence in the guidance and knowledge he imparts and regard him capable of guiding him correctly in Deeni matters.

- He should have inqiyaad for him i.e. he should follow the advices and teachings of the Shaikh diligently with complete commitment and dedication.

Allah Alone Provides Sustenance

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

My beloved friends! When you have a worldly need then you should adopt the halaal means to the point of necessity to fulfill the need. However, when adopting the means, you should keep your focus towards Allah Ta‘ala and remember that it is He alone who provides, not the means. I am not saying that the means should not be adopted. Rather, the means should not be made the purpose and goal in one’s life (i.e. one should not make compromises in one’s Deen on account of one’s profession, means of livelihood, etc.). (Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 188)

Sacrificing One’s Life and Wealth for the Cause of Deen

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

The primary purpose of the effort of Da’wat and Tableegh is to turn people away from the wrongs that Shaitaan invites them towards and bring them to the complete obedience of Allah Ta‘ala. However, without effort and sacrifice, it will not be possible to achieve this purpose. Hence, to achieve this goal, people will be required to sacrifice their lives as well as their wealth for the cause of Deen.

In the case of Da’wat and Tableegh, sacrificing one’s life refers to one leaving his home and going out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala to spread the message of Allah Ta‘ala and propagate Deen, and sacrificing one’s wealth refers to one bearing his own expenses and using his own money to go out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 36)

Not Finding the Desired Level of Motivation in One’s ‘Ibaadah

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

A person once wrote a letter to me wherein he complained of himself not finding the desired motivation to perform salaah, make zikr and recite the Quraan Majeed. He asked me for the cure and solution to his problem. I mentioned to him that despite not finding the motivation and drive within himself to carry out the ‘ibaadah, he should still perform it and not leave it out. Through him remaining punctual on the ‘ibaadah, he will eventually find the desired level of motivation within himself as well as the quality of his ‘ibaadah improving. This is similar to a person who is unable to write correctly. Through him continuously practising to write correctly, he will eventually improve his writing ability. On the contrary, if he loses heart and leaves out writing on account of his weakness, he will never succeed in improving his writing skill and ability.
