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

If a person makes shukr to Allah Ta‘ala for the favours he enjoys (and he utilizes the favours in the obedience of Allah Ta‘ala), then this is a sign that the favours he enjoys are a blessing from the side of Allah Ta‘ala upon him (which will be a means for his progress). However, if he does not make shukr to Allah Ta‘ala for the favours, and the favours cause him to fall into negligence and forget Allah Ta‘ala, then this is a sign that the favours he enjoys are a trial and test from the side of Allah Ta‘ala upon him.

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

The special friends of Allah Ta‘ala who have acquired His recognition are such that, despite all the good qualities that they possess, they do not regard any of their actions to be worthy of being presented before Allah Ta‘ala. In proportion to the progress that they make, their humility goes on increasing, until they reach a point where they consider themselves to be the lowest of Allah Ta‘ala’s servants, and they feel that there is no servant of Allah Ta‘ala that is lower than them.

Acquiring the Special Assistance of Allah Ta‘ala

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

When a person adopts taqwa (piety) and fears Allah Ta‘ala in his life by subjecting his desires to the command of Allah Ta‘ala, then Allah Ta‘ala removes his difficulties through unseen means, and assists him through avenues which he least expects. Allah Ta‘ala says in the Quraan Majeed:

وَ  مَنۡ یَّتَّقِ اللّٰهَ یَجۡعَلۡ لَّهُ مَخۡرَجًا ۙ﴿۲﴾

The one who fears Allah Ta‘ala, He (Allah Ta‘ala) will make a way out for him (from every difficulty). (Surah Talaaq v2)

The Basis and Objective of Unity

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

Allah Ta‘ala says in the Quraan Majeed:

وَ اعۡتَصِمُوۡا بِحَبۡلِ اللّٰهِ جَمِیۡعًا وَّلاَ تَفَرَّقُوۡا

Hold firmly to the rope of Allah Ta‘ala all together and do not be divided. (Surah Aal Imraan v103)

The benefit of unity mentioned in this verse will not be acquired by merely bringing people together. Rather, the benefit of unity will be acquired through bringing people together and uniting them upon the rope of Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. uniting them upon practising true Deen).

Hence, it is a futile exercise to try and bring people together merely for the sake of unity (when their Deeni views and objectives are poles apart). Instead, the purpose of unity is to unite people upon the truth, and this is what is being referred to by “Hold firmly to the rope of Allah Ta‘ala all together and do not be divided” mentioned in this verse of the Quraan Majeed.

Desiring the wealth of others

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

One should bear in mind the following aspect. If one acquires something from someone without asking, nor having the desire and expectation of receiving the item from him, then there will be a lot of barakah and blessings in the item which one has acquired. However, if one acquires something from someone through asking, or after having the expectation and desire of acquiring the item from the person, then there will not be any barakah and blessings in such an item which one has acquired. For example, one sees a wealthy person and desires that he gives him something from his wealth, then this is regarded as ishraaf-e-nafs (desiring the wealth of others) and this is not permissible in shareeah.

(Malfoozaat Hazrat Shaikh 1/44)
