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

The science of Fiqh (jurisprudence) is an extremely difficult science. There is a need for those issuing fatwas (Islamic rulings) to exercise caution when issuing fatwas. Most of the time, we find that people are lax in masaa-il and follow whatever they desire. This aspect is especially evident among the ghair muqallideen (those who do not commit themselves to the following of a mazhab). (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 6/202)

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

My friends! Ensure that you are punctual on your daily ma’moolaat (devotional practices). Regard your ma’moolaat to be more important than your food and drink, and try to remain engaged in zikr at all times. If perchance you miss out any ma’mool, then do not have your meal until you complete your ma’mool. Initially, being punctual on your ma’moolaat will be difficult on the nafs. However through determination and commitment, you will begin to see the fruits of progress.

(Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 416)

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

Jannah is only for the servants who are humble. If a person has an iota of pride in him, he will first be entered into Jahannum where he will have to be cleansed and purified of the pride. Once he is fully cleansed and purified of pride and only humility remains within him, he will be ushered into Jannah. In essence, no person who has pride can enter Jannah. Jannah is the abode of the people of humility. Hence, one should endeavour to rid oneself of pride and inculcate complete humility. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 57)

The Remedy for Casting Lustful Glances and Other Sins

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

The remedy for casting lustful glances and other sins is for a person to regularly study the biographies of the pious. Additionally, one should allocate some time to sit in solitude and ponder over the numerous warnings and punishments mentioned in the Quraan Majeed and hadeeth for the sins that one is involved in. When the thought of sin crosses one’s mind, one should immediately remind oneself of these warnings and punishments. Through continuously doing this, insha-Allah the strong urge of the nafs to commit sins will no longer remain. Thereafter, at times, if one perceives a slight inclination to commit sin, one should adopt self-resistance and oppose this inclination. However, if a person does not take courage and show determination then there is no remedy for such a person. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/57)

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

Making du‘aa is extremely important and I do not deny it’s significance in any way. However, it is important for one to understand that merely sufficing on du‘aa without making a concerted effort to improve one’s life is incorrect. One will not see improvement in one’s life through sufficing on du‘aa.

Allah Ta‘ala mentions in the Quraan Majeed:

قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللّٰهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللّٰهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللّٰهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ ﴿٣١﴾

O Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Say (to your Ummah), “If you (claim to) love Allah then follow me, (through following me,) Allah Ta‘ala will make you beloved to Him and forgive your sins, and Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
