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

In order for one to benefit in Deen, one is required to associate with the pious and learn Deen. Completely disassociating oneself and remaining aloof from people is discouraged as it will be a means for harm coming to one’s Deen. However, in situations where disassociating oneself from certain classes of people is beneficial for one’s Deen, then even though it may be harmful to one’s dunya, it will not be discouraged, as it will be a means of safeguarding one’s Deen. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/59-60)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following advice to one of his close associates:

An extremely important advice in regard to dealing with wives is that one should avoid adopting a hard approach with one’s wife. Rather, always adopt a soft approach with the wife and continue to encourage her in Deeni matters. Conduct daily ta’leem from Fazaail-e-Aa’maal and Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat with the wife and family, and if you hear stories of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) or the pious, you should relate it to your family at home. Insha-Allah, this will prove extremely beneficial for their guidance. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 423-424)

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in his mubaarak hadeeth:

الدنيا سجن المؤمن وجنة الكافر

The dunya is the prison of a believer and the paradise of a disbeliever

The meaning of this hadeeth is that our purpose for being sent to this world is not to fulfill our desires and make this world our paradise. Rather, our purpose for being sent to this world is to remain obedient to the commands of Allah Ta‘ala and oppose our desires which lead us towards His disobedience. In this way, the restrictions on our nafs are resembled to a prison. However, if we begin to emulate the kuffaar in obeying our nafs and following our desires, we will be no different to the kuffaar who obey their nafs and have made this world their paradise. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 34)

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

There is a great need for each person to be concerned about his own reformation and to correct his actions. Nowadays, we find that people have fallen into the sickness of worrying about other people’s weaknesses while they are unconcerned about their own reformation. This can be compared to a person who is more concerned about looking after the shoes of others while his own shoes and luggage get stolen due to him being unconcerned about them. How foolish is the action of such a person! (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/56)

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

My beloved friends! Going on discussing one’s difficulties and problems will not bring about any solution nor will it help you. In the face of hardships and difficulties, nothing benefits a person except istighfaar and earnestly turning to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa. Mention this advice of mine to your friends and associates and frequently remind them of it as well. We should understand that all the difficulties and calamities that we experience are actually the result of our evil actions. In reality, the difficulties that we face on account of our sins and wrongs are much less than what we are deserving of.

My beloved friends! Each person should look into his own heart to introspect over his condition and see what sins he is involved in. The truth of the matter is that we are only continuing in our present condition due to the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala and the blessing of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as we are definitely deserving of far greater punishments and difficulties. When difficulties and calamities overcome us then falling into anxiety and depression will not help us. It is crying to Allah Ta‘ala in repentance that will help us. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 421-422)
