Once, a group of students from Darul ‘Uloom Deoband had come to Nizaamuddeen to spend some time in the path of Allah Ta‘ala. In regard to these students, Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned the following advice to his attendant:

These students who have come here to spend time are an amaanat of Allah Ta‘ala and a gift sent to us. You should value this gift and show appreciation to Allah Ta‘ala for it. They have come for a short while, hence ensure that their time is spent correctly and is not wasted in the least. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 100)

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

The servant should take up the courage to carry out righteous works, and then Allah Ta‘ala will cause his endeavours to materialise and be fruitful. This can be understood through the example of a father who sees his infant child trying to walk. The child takes a few steps and then falls. The father feels pity for his child and helps the child by picking him up and carrying him in his lap.

Hence, just as the father wishes to see the child make an effort in trying to walk before he assists him, similarly Allah Ta‘ala wants to see us make an effort to please Him, and then He will assist us by causing our endeavours to reach completion. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/106)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following in reply to the letter of a person who complained of various weaknesses:

There is no person who is completely free of weakness and sin. Hence, the hadeeth mentions:

كل ابن آدم خطاء وخير الخطائين التوابون (سنن الترمذي رقم 2499)

The children of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) fall much into sins, and the best of those who fall into sins are those who continue to turn to Allah Ta‘ala in repentance.

At all times, you should ensure and make an effort to refrain from sins, as sin will bring harm and damage to your Deen and dunya. As far as possible, try to follow all the sunnats relating to ‘ibaadah and the sunnats relating to the blessed ways of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Adopting taqwa is the staircase to progress in Deen and dunya.

In your letter you mentioned that love for recognition and other similar sins are difficult to give up. However, even the worst of sins in this world is not difficult to give up. The solution to give up sins is for one to adopt courage and determination. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 432)

The Power of Du‘aa

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

Many Muslims neglect making du‘aa, and as for those who make du‘aa, then many of them have not understood the power of du‘aa. The importance and power of du‘aa need to be explained to the Muslims in order that they engage in du‘aa with the correct mindset.

At the time of making du‘aa, one should bear in mind that one is presenting one’s needs in the court of the King of all kings. While presenting one’s needs before Allah Ta‘ala, one should focus one’s heart towards the majesty of Allah Ta‘ala and His greatness. Then, with utmost humility and helplessness, one should converse with Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa with the heart being filled with the conviction that Allah Ta‘ala will certainly accept his du‘aa. One should also realize that the being from whom one is begging is the King of all kings, who is most generous, kind and loving towards His servants. When He is most generous, kind and loving towards His servants, then He will most surely answer the call of His servants. Undoubtedly, the keys to the treasures of the heavens and earth only lie in His hand and He has complete and supreme power over everything. It is with this mindset that one should make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala and present his need.

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

The righteous actions that we carry out during our lives are only through the grace of Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala creates the motivation within our hearts to remember Him and carry out those righteous actions. Hence, at no time should we ever feel that it is through our efforts that these righteous actions are being accomplished. Rather, we should, at all times, attribute the good to Allah Ta‘ala and express gratitude to Him. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/62)
