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

The tongue plays an important role in causing one to earn distinguished positions. If a person utilizes the tongue for good, and makes it the means for carrying out righteous works (e.g. he commands people to obey Allah Ta‘ala, recite the Quraan Majeed etc.), then he will be distinguished and recognized among people for the good which he carried out through his tongue (i.e. in this world and the Hereafter, he will be recognized for acquiring great rewards and a high rank on account of utilizing his tongue for good).

However, if he makes his tongue a tool for carrying out evil works and sins through involving himself in obscene speech or through verbally abusing people, then through this very tongue, he will be distinguished and recognized among people (in this world and the Hereafter) for the wrong works and evil deeds that he excelled in. At times, on account of the evil deeds carried out through this tongue, a person debases himself to such an extent that he becomes worse than a dog or even a swine. In regard to the use of the tongue and its consequences, the hadeeth shareef mentions:

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

My beloved friends! After one passes away, people will no longer think of him and remember him. Even one’s immediate family, wife, children, brothers and sisters will all forget about him. Perhaps on some occasions, certain people will remember him and convey reward for him. Hence, this life which Allah Ta‘ala has blessed you with is indeed very precious. You should value this life and make the best preparations for your Aakhirah while you can. (Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 201)

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

Greed is the root cause of all problems. It is such an evil trait and spiritual malady that it should be regarded as the mother of all spiritual maladies. It is on account of greed that disputes and fights occur, and it is on account of greed that most of the court cases take place. If it was not for the greed of wealth, then no person would have trampled the rights of the next.

Theft and zina also stem from greed for wealth and greed for haraam passions. Evil character also originates from the same root, as the friends of Allah Ta‘ala say that evil character stems from pride, which is the greed for recognition. Hence, even pride stems from greed. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/146)

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

The essence of our effort of Tableegh is to learn Deen from our seniors and to pass it on to our families and those upon whom we have influence. We should consider the people to whom we pass on Deen as our benefactors and people whose favours are upon us (on account of them being the means of our spiritual progress).

The more we pass on the kalimah (and Deen) to others, the more the kalimah will shine in our lives and reach perfection within us. The more people we encourage towards salaah, the more our own salaah will improve.

After quoting the aforementioned malfooz, the compiler of the malfoozaat of Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Manzoor Nu’maani (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), writes:

This is one of the important principles of Tableegh, that the person carrying out the effort of Tableegh must regard his goal to be his own improvement and reformation, and must not regard himself to be the one imparting hidaayat to others, as it is only Allah Ta‘ala that can bestow hidaayat to the people. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 38)

On one occasion, an elderly man came to Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) and complained to him saying, “I am now advanced in age, yet my son beat me and dragged me for some distance, kicking me out of the house.” Hearing this, Hazrat Shaikh (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) sympathized with the man and made du‘aa for him.

Thereafter, Hazrat Shaikh (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) addressed a person, who was also present when the elderly man had come, saying, “When a person ill-treats his parents, then apart from being punished in the Hereafter, he will also be punished in this world. Therefore, enquire from people who know him, and who are of his age or older, in regard to the manner in which he had treated his father. It is most likely that he had ill-treated his father in the same way.”

The following week, after making the enquiry, the person returned and said, “Hazrat! What you mentioned is absolutely correct! He had beaten his father in the same manner. In fact, I had found out that the distance which his son dragged him was approximately the same distance that he had dragged his own father.”

When Hazrat Shaikh (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) heard this, he remarked, “The person is now being punished in the world for ill-treating his father.” (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 464-482)
