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

My Senior Buzrugaan-e-Deen have not only mentioned the following advice but I had seen them diligently practise upon it in their lives as well – a person should not be more concerned regarding how people deal with him, rather he should be more concerned regarding how he deals with them. In many writings of our Senior ‘Ulama and Buzrugaan-e-Deen, we will find this repeatedly being mentioned that if a person has outstanding rights which he owes to the people, be they monetary rights or other rights, then he should endeavour to fulfil them so that he is not held accountable in the Hereafter. As far as the rights which others owe to him are concerned, be they monetary rights or other rights, then he should not become over worried and concerned. The reason is that if they do not fulfil his rights in this world, Allah Ta‘ala will compensate him with a reward that is far greater than that which he lost in this world. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 389)

On one occasion, due to inclement weather, meat could not be delivered to Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih). Coincidentally, Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) was expecting guests regarding whom Hazrat Moulana (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) knew that they liked meat. Moulana (rahimahullah) was thus saddened that he would not be able to serve meat to these guests on that occasion. Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) then mentioned, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in a Hadith:

من كان يؤمن بالله واليوم الآخر فليكرم ضيفه

‘He who believes in Allah Ta‘ala and the last day should honour his guest.’”

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) thereafter said, “When we are commanded to honour the guest, then how much more deserving of honour are the guests of Allah Ta‘ala and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who have come to us to learn Deen.” (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 18-19)

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

The Muslims can only gain power and rulership in the earth through them constantly remaining obedient to Allah Ta‘ala and fulfilling His commands. It is logical that if a person wants to gain a favour from someone, then he is more likely to receive it through pleasing the person than through displeasing the person. When one understands that supreme authority and power lie in the hands of Allah Ta‘ala, then if the Muslims wish to gain power and rulership, they should constantly remain obedient to Allah Ta‘ala and turn to Him at all times. How strange it is that people regard following the laws of Shari’ah to be a cause for their retrogression, and regard breaking the laws of Shari’ah to be a cause for their progress. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 5/350)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once advised a person saying: In order for you to acquire focus and remain composed at all times, it will be necessary for you to make a timetable, allocating time for each responsibility. Thereafter, if you adhere strictly to your timetable, you will be able to easily complete all your various works with complete ease and undivided attention. Over time, working in this manner will become your second nature. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 387)

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

People regard different things to be the sign of a person’s perfection. Some people base perfection on one’s excessive ‘ibaadah (worship), while others base perfection on one’s level of taqwa (piety and abstinence). However, according to the ‘Ulama, the person who has truly acquired perfection is he who, with possessing the qualities of perfection, always keeps his weaknesses and faults before him at all times. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 3/321)
