An Effective Method for Remembering the Qur’aan Majeed


Monday, 02 December 2019 15:12

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

Reciting one’s dhor of the Qur’aan Majeed in one’s nafl salaah can greatly help one to remember the Qur’aan. I have experienced this personally and many of my friends have also witnessed this.

From the number of paras which one has memorized, one should take a minimum of half a para daily and recite it once or twice while looking into the Qur’aan Majeed. Thereafter, one should try to recite the same portion throughout the day and night in one’s nafl salaah such as awwaabeen, tahajjud, etc. One should at least recite the portion once or twice. This practice is proven to be extremely effective in remembering and preserving the Qur’aan Majeed. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 459)

The Value of Istiqaamah


Monday, 25 November 2019 16:49

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

If a person is punctual and consistent on his ma’moolaat (i.e. after fulfilling all the faraa-idh, waajibaat and sunan actions of Deen), then this is such a great achievement that even if he does not introduce any new nafl aa’maal into his life, it will not harm him and he will still progress. The reason is that remaining punctual on one’s ma’moolaat is known as ‘istiqaamah’ (steadfastness), and the Akaabir have clearly mentioned that istiqaamah is even greater than a miracle. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/233)

The Great Rewards for Charity, Gifting and Giving Loans


Monday, 18 November 2019 16:21

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

The great virtues for charity, gifting and assisting people through loans should be explained to people by narrating the incidents of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to them.

When we view the lives of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), we find that they would earn money and thereafter spend in charity. Hence, it was not only the wealthy Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who would spend in charity. Rather, even the poor Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) earned money and spent whatever they could manage in charity as they understood the great virtues of charity.

When there are great virtues promised for giving charity, then we should understand that the virtue and reward for giving a gift is even greater. Likewise, there are many virtues that can be acquired through assisting a person with a loan. For example, if the debtor is unable to settle the debt when the due date arrives, then through the creditor giving him respite, he will receive the reward of sadaqah for each day that passes. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 50)

Not Delaying in Righteous Works


Monday, 11 November 2019 17:05

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

The Quraan Majeed reminds man, time and again, that every person’s time of death has been fixed, and it can neither be delayed nor brought ahead by even one moment. Man keeps thinking to himself, “I want to give such-and-such thing in sadaqah, and I want to make such-and-such item waqf, and I would like to write a bequest for so-and-so.” However, all he does is continue to have these thoughts without carrying them out, until suddenly, fate strikes and he passes away, either while walking, sitting or sleeping. Hence, one should not procrastinate and delay carrying out such righteous deeds and works by prolonged planning and thinking. Rather, one should hasten and spend in the path of Allah Ta‘ala as soon as he can, thus securing his rewards by Allah Ta‘ala. (Extracted from Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat [urdu] pg. 46)

The Mindset of a Believer in regard to Sustenance


Monday, 04 November 2019 15:43

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

If Allah Ta‘ala blesses a person with halaal livelihood without difficulty, then this is indeed a great favour and bounty of Allah Ta‘ala. However, at times, a person who acquires livelihood without difficulty falls into self-admiration, pride, attributing good towards himself, boasting, being negligent of what Allah Ta‘ala wants from him, looking down at the poor and taking undue advantage of the weak.

The remedy and solution for such a person is for him to reflect and ponder over the favour he is receiving from Allah Ta‘ala without difficulty. He should think within himself, “This blessing is solely the grace of Allah Ta‘ala upon me. If it were not for His divine favour upon me, then most surely, I would not have been in this position, as I am not deserving of this favour and there is no goodness within me that makes me worthy of this bounty.”
