Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: True success in Deen is for one to regard oneself as unworthy at all times. At no time should any person regard himself as successful on account of his actions. Even the good actions which one carries out, one should have the conviction within his heart that it is only through the grace of Allah Ta‘ala that he is able to carry out such actions, and it is only the grace of Allah Ta‘ala that will make one successful. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

لن يدخل أحدا منكم عمله الجنة قالوا ولا أنت يا رسول الله قال ولا أنا إلا أن يتغمدني الله منه بفضل ورحمة (صحيح مسلم الرقم: 2816)

“None of your actions will cause you to enter Jannah.” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) enquired, “Not even you, O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (i.e. your actions will not cause you to enter Jannah)?” Rasulullah replied, “Not even me, (my actions will not cause me to enter Jannah. I also cannot enter Jannah) unless Allah Ta‘ala envelops me with His grace and mercy.”

Valuable Moments of Acceptance

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

The trials and tribulations that one undergoes in life have been predestined and will occur at their appointed time. When one undergoes any difficulty, then for one to experience grief is natural. However, at the time of difficulty, when one turns to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa, engages in zikr, remains firm on Deen and does not leave out the tilaawat of the Quraan Majeed, then due to remaining punctual on righteous deeds and being committed to Deen despite the hardship, the rewards of one’s actions will be extremely weighty in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala (and this is the solution for one to gain Allah Ta‘ala’s mercy). In reality, these are valuable moments of acceptance. Hence, one should take advantage of these moments and try to achieve the love of Allah Ta‘ala and the rewards of the Hereafter. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 492-493)

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

Those who join the work of Tableegh, I instruct them to engage in zikr and recite the third kalimah. They should also be punctual on reciting the Tasbeeh-e-Faatimi after their fardh salaah and on reciting durood shareef and istighfaar one hundred times in the morning and evening. Together with this, they should be punctual on the recitation of the Quraan Majeed daily with the correct pronunciation and tajweed.

Apart from performing other nafl salaahs, I also emphasize upon them the importance of performing the Tahajjud Salaah. I encourage them to associate with the learned ‘Ulama and benefit from them, as acquiring ‘ilm is extremely important. If one suffices on acquiring Deeni knowledge but is not concerned about zikr (the remembrance of Allah Ta‘ala which aids one to remain pure and assists him in fulfilling the dictates of the knowledge and applying it correctly in all departments of his life), one will find darkness in his heart, and if one suffices on zikr without acquiring the correct Deeni knowledge and application, this may cause him to fall into many fitnahs.

A person once wrote a letter to Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), complaining of numerous problems that he was experiencing in relation to Deeni and worldly matters. In reply, Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) wrote the following:

After adopting the correct means, entrust all your affairs to Allah Ta‘ala. Thereafter, whatever Allah Ta‘ala decides for you, you should remain entirely pleased and satisfied with His decision. This is the best solution that one can adopt for all types of problems and anxieties. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/195)

Engaging in Durood at the Time of an Epidemic

Hazrat Moulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah) mentioned the following:

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (rahimahullah) had prepared a kitaab named “Nashrut Teeb” in regard to the love of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The entire kitaab revolves around love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and through reading this kitaab, one can gauge the deep love within the heart of the author for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

During the time when Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (rahimahullah) was engaged in the compilation of Nashrut Teeb, Thana Bowan (the town in which Hazrat Thaanwi [rahimahullah] resided) was afflicted by a plague. It was noticed that on the day when Hazrat Thaanwi (rahimahullah) wrote any portion of this kitaab, there would be no reports of people passing away due to the plague. However, on the day when Hazrat Thaanwi (rahimahullah) did not write any portion of the kitaab, reports of many people passing away would be heard. When this observation reached Hazrat Thaanwi (rahimahullah) via many people, he would not leave out writing this kitaab on any day. It was through the barakah (blessings) of writing about the great virtues and esteemed position of Rasulullah (sallalahu alaihi wasallam) during that time that Allah Ta‘ala caused the plague to come to an end.

After mentioning the above incident, Hazrat Moulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah) concluded:
