Death is Inevitable

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

I always reflect over the fact that death is inevitable. Each person knows with certainty that death will overtake him one day. Why is it that people are still so unmindful about death and hence do not prepare for it? Today after Asr salaah my neighbour had passed away. May Allah Ta’ala forgive him and have mercy on him. He had just performed his Asr salaah and sat down in order to recite the Quraan when death had overtaken him all of a sudden. No one knows at which moment death will strike. One is unaware whether one will live to see the next day or even the next hour. I took a great lesson from the death of my neighbour. He was a pious man who was bay'at to my respected uncle Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih). (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/134)

Making Salaam at the Time of Entering the Home

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

“Some people enter their homes without greeting the household (with salaam) and making their presence known to their families. This way of entering the home is incorrect. It is part of the etiquettes of Islam that at the time of entering the home one enters with making salaam aloud. The benefit of this teaching is so that the wife and the inmates of the household will be able to make themselves presentable if they are not in a state that they wish to be seen. Similarly, it is possible that in the home there could be non mahram women of the locality present, and without informing them of one’s presence, one’s sight could fall on them. It is for this reason sharee'ah teaches us that at the time of entering the home one should make his presence known (i.e. through salaam).” (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 1/210)

Revival of Islam

shahadah-calligraphy-wallpaper-on-green-glowHazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once said: "I don’t know how to explain this aspect to you but it is my heart’s desire that every person should come onto the straight path of Islam, in such a manner that the beauty of Islam becomes manifest in every facet of his life. Just as people by merely witnessing the lives of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) embraced Islam, similarly each and every believer in this time should become a living role model of Islam for the world. The success of one’s deen and dunya lies in this. Undoubtedly, if a Muslim reforms his life and remains totally committed to the deen of Islam, then let alone him acquiring deeni success, even his worldly problems and difficulties will be solved." (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 1/69)

Advantages of Adopting the Appearance of the Pious

Nile_River_and_delta_from_orbitHazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaih) mentioned:

“Beloved friends! It is not something to be said, however I feel I should mention it to you. Undoubtedly, we are not pious people; nevertheless we endeavour to adopt the appearance of the pious and truthful. We have hope that through adopting the appearance of the pious and truthful, Allah Ta'ala will also favour us and will not deprive us of His grace. Look at the incident of Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) and Fir'oun. In the era of Fir'oun, the magicians confronted Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) (with the intention of opposing him). However on account of them imitating his clothing and outward appearance, Allah Ta'ala gave them taufeeq of embracing Islam and Allah Ta'ala favoured them. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/107)

Ascertaining and Verifying Information

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) states:

"Haji Abdur Raheem used to work for my late brother. Once, my first wife complained about him. I immediately summoned him and asked him to stand at the entrance. Thereafter, in her presence I addressed him: 'She has complained about you.’ I then said to her: 'You have made a claim regarding some person. Hence you should be able to prove it.' However, she didn't have any proof and began saying: 'You have made fazeehat of me (disgraced me).' I replied: 'I do not make fazeehat, rather I give naseehat (advice).' This practice of complaining about others is evil. It creates enmity within the hearts of people. It then leads to one having doubts as to whether the next person has said something regarding him or not. (Malfoozaat Hakeem-ul-Ummat 1/173)
