Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: We are commanded in the Hadith to have a good opinion of the believers. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

حسن الظن من حسن العبادة

Having a good opinion of people is an act of ‘ibaadah

We should understand that this Hadith is to be practised in situations where one does not have any business dealings with people. As far as situations where one has business dealings with people, then one will be careful and alert. (In this way, one will not be deceived by people. However, one should refrain from entertaining baseless suspicions about people). (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 116)

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

Most people are not particular about giving their children an Islamic upbringing. Such people generally say, “The children are still small.” However, it should be remembered that the good values instilled in childhood are firmly embedded in the child and remain with him throughout his life. In fact, childhood is the actual period wherein the character of a child and his understanding can be correctly moulded. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/219)

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

It is mentioned in the mubaarak hadeth that Qiyaamah will not occur as long as the name of Allah Ta‘ala is taken on the earth (therefore, remain engaged in the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala). My beloved friends! Remain firm on Deen and make a firm determination to hold firmly onto the ways of the pious predecessors. (Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 106)

Creating the Enthusiasm for Deen

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

In our opinion, the root malady and sickness of the ummah in this day and age is that their hearts are void of the enthusiasm and value of deen. If the concern and yearning for deen is created in them, and the importance and respect of deen is revived in their hearts, then you would see complete deen coming alive in their lives. The primary purpose of the effort of da’wat and tableegh is to make an effort to create the enthusiasm and value of deen in people’s hearts. Through the enthusiasm being created, they will be motivated to go to the ‘Ulamaa and learn and practice deen correctly. The purpose of this effort is not to just teach people to recite the kalimah and correct their salaah, etc. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 61-62)

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

If a person is addressed by any of his seniors (e.g. his parents, ustaaz, shaikh, etc.), then it is extremely disrespectful for him to ignore the senior and intentionally not reply to him. Similarly, it is disrespectful for him to answer them with a delay as delaying in replying will cause them some type of inconvenience. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/82)
