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

من لا يرحم لا يرحم ارحموا من في الأرض يرحمكم من في السماء

The one who does not show mercy (to others) will not be shown mercy (by Allah Ta‘ala). Show mercy to those on the earth, and the One in the heavens will show mercy to you.

After mentioning this hadeeth, Moulana (rahimahullah) said:

Unfortunately, people restrict this hadeeth to refer to showing mercy to only those who are suffering from hunger and poverty. Hence, they express sympathy and concern for those who are hungry, thirsty and do not have clothing. However, they do not express sympathy and concern for those Muslims who are deprived of Deen. In other words, people recognize a worldly decline to be a loss, but do not regard a Deeni decline to be a loss. How can we expect Allah Ta‘ala to shower His mercy on us when we do not express any sympathy and concern over the Deeni retrogression of the Muslims?

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

A person should always have confidence upon his seniors and refer to them when accomplishing any important task (which requires their guidance). It has been proven through experience that without referring to one’s seniors, the work one wishes to carry out will not be accomplished correctly.

It is for this reason that during the battle, we are commanded to appoint one leader and refer to him for all decisions. Similarly, in small matters, we should refer to our seniors and follow their guidance.

Nevertheless, in this regard, it is vital for one to refer to such a person for guidance who has the required knowledge, and is also one’s well-wisher.

Turning to Allah Ta‘ala at All Times

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

If a beggar comes to one’s door, begging with humility and helplessness, then one will give him something and will not let him go hungry. In fact, even if one finds a hungry dog at his door, then he will give it something or the other to eat. Hence, if a person presents himself at the door of Allah Ta‘ala (through turning to Allah Ta‘ala and sincerely begging Him for his needs), will Allah Ta‘ala let him go hungry and not fulfil his need?

It is reported in a Hadeeth Qudsi that Allah Ta‘ala says, “O son of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam)! Free yourself for My worship, and I will fill your heart with contentment and will bring an end to your poverty. However, if you do not do so, then I will fill your hands with occupations and I will not bring an end to your poverty.” (Sunan Tirmizi # 2466)

The Efforts of the Musjid

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

All musjids in the world are branches of Musjid-e-Nabawi, the musjid of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Hence, the Deeni efforts that used to take place in the Musjid of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) should be carried out in all musjids.

During the era of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), apart from the five daily salaah being performed in Musjid-e-Nabawi, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would impart the knowledge of Deen to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and make an effort upon their Deeni reformation. Together with this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would send jamaats to the various areas to propagate Deen to the people or to educate them regarding Deeni matters.

An Effective Method for Leaving out Sins

Tuesday, 18 August 2020 06:53

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

One method which I prescribe to people for leaving out sins, is that every night before sleeping, one should seclude oneself in a room and sincerely supplicate to Allah Ta‘ala to forgive him for his sins. One should make du’aa to Allah Ta’ala in the following manner: “O Allah! I am an extremely sinful servant! I am not worthy of any good and I am full of weaknesses!” Through these words, one should express one’s true condition of sinfulness before Allah Ta’ala. Thereafter, one should say, “O Allah! I do not have the courage and resolve to leave out these sins! It is only You who can assist and help me to leave out these sins!”

If one adopts this method, then insha-Allah, in a week or two, he will be blessed with the taufeeq and ability to leave out these sins. However, very few people are willing to sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala in this manner.

(Malfoozaat Husn-ul-Azeez pg. 226)
