Sayings of the Pious

Acknowledging the Grace of Allah Ta‘ala upon us


Monday, 05 August 2019 15:21

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

The righteous actions that we carry out during our lives are only through the grace of Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala creates the motivation within our hearts to remember Him and carry out those righteous actions. Hence, at no time should we ever feel that it is through our efforts that these righteous actions are being accomplished. Rather, we should, at all times, attribute the good to Allah Ta‘ala and express gratitude to Him. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/62)

Repenting for One’s Sins


Monday, 29 July 2019 14:45

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: I have mentioned the following verse of the Quraan Majeed many times in the past:

وَمَا أَصَـابَكُم مِّنْ مُّصِيْبَةٍ فَبِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِيْكُمْ وَيَعْفُوْا عَنْ كَثِيْرٍ

Whatever calamity afflicts you is because of that which your hands have earned (evil deeds), and He forgives many (of your sins). (Surah Shura v30)

By Allah Ta‘ala, one will be dealt with according to his actions. At times, the result of one’s actions is not seen immediately. However, it does not mean that if one does not see the result of one’s actions immediately, there is no result that is forthcoming. The consequence of one’s actions will definitely be seen sooner or later. Similarly, if we experience some difficulty, the difficulty we experience may not always be due to the apparent cause that we see before us. Sometimes, there is another hidden cause (i.e. our sins) which we don’t consider, whereas this is the actual cause for the difficulty. It is for this reason that you should make istighfaar constantly and make a habit of reciting Aayat-e-Kareemah (لا إله إلا أنت سبحانك إني كنت من الظالمين) in abundance. We should turn to Allah Ta‘ala at all times for He is the only source of help.

(Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 429)

How to Deal with People


Monday, 22 July 2019 16:05

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: We are commanded in the hadeeth to have a good opinion of the believers. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

حسن الظن من حسن العبادة

Having a good opinion of people is an act of ‘ibaadah

We should understand that this hadeeth is to be practised in situations where one does not have any business dealings with people. As far as situations where one has business dealings with people, then one will be careful and alert. (In this way, one will not be deceived by people. However, one should refrain from entertaining baseless suspicions about people). (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 116)

Moulding the Character in Childhood


Monday, 15 July 2019 08:49

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

Most people are not particular about giving their children an Islamic upbringing. Such people generally say, “The children are still small.” However, it should be remembered that the good values instilled in childhood are firmly embedded in the child and remain with him throughout his life. In fact, childhood is the actual period wherein the character of a child and his understanding can be correctly moulded. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/219)

Holding onto the Ways of the Pious Predecessors


Monday, 08 July 2019 14:30

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

It is mentioned in the mubaarak hadeth that Qiyaamah will not occur as long as the name of Allah Ta‘ala is taken on the earth (therefore, remain engaged in the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala). My beloved friends! Remain firm on Deen and make a firm determination to hold firmly onto the ways of the pious predecessors. (Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 106)
