Sayings of the Pious

Turning to Allah Ta‘ala Alone in the Hour of Need


Monday, 30 September 2019 15:45

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) has written:

The hearts of all men in the world are controlled by Allah Ta‘ala alone. However humbly we entreat someone and earnestly request him to fulfil our need, he will not be moved, unless He, in whose hands the hearts of all men lie, wills it so. On the other hand, if He, in whose control lies the hearts of all men, decrees it to happen, He will inspire the hearts of men to fulfil our need. Despite how much of disinterest we show towards a person, he will be obliged to fulfill our need. The reason is that Allah Ta‘ala will create a strong feeling within his heart to fulfill our need. So, it is Allah Ta‘ala alone who we should turn to and whose help we should seek in the hour of need. (Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat [urdu] pg. 214)

Being Appreciative to Allah Ta‘ala for the Bounty of Sustenance


Monday, 23 September 2019 15:38

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

Acquiring sustenance is not based on one’s intelligence, but rather it is based entirely on the grace of Allah Ta‘ala. There are thousands of people in the world who are not intelligent, yet they are blessed with much more sustenance than those who are intelligent. Allah Ta‘ala says in the Quraan Majeed:

اَللّٰهُ یَبْسُطُ الرِّزْقَ لِمَنْ یَّشَاءُ وَیَقْدِرُ

Allah Ta‘ala expands (increases) sustenance for whomsoever He wishes, and restricts (sustenance for whomsoever He wishes).

From this aayah, we understand that sustenance is the sole prerogative of Allah Ta‘ala. He deals with His servants in the manner He wishes. Therefore, if Allah Ta‘ala blesses one with sustenance, he should remain grateful to Allah Ta‘ala at all times for this great favour and never show any ingratitude. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 5/261)

An Amaanat of Allah Ta‘ala


Monday, 09 September 2019 16:20

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)

The System of Allah Ta‘ala


Monday, 02 September 2019 16:22

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)

There is no Person who is Completely Free of Weakness


Monday, 26 August 2019 15:06

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)
