Sayings of the Pious

Without Effort a Person cannot be Successful


Monday, 20 October 2014 06:33

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaih) once addressed some associates and said:

"My beloved friends, make an effort to acquire the friendship of Allah Ta'ala. A poet exclaims: The one who wishes to acquire any lofty position has to burn the midnight oil."

Thereafter Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaih) mentioned that once a person spent some time in the company of Hazrat Moulana Abdul Qaadir Raipuri (rahmatullahi 'alaih). He engaged in zikr and spiritual exercises, etc. One day he said to Hazrat Raipuri, “I am carrying out my zikr, etc., but I do not feel the zikr having any effect on me as yet.” Hearing this, Hazrat Raipuri replied, “Continue to strive.  Piety and acceptance is not a type of medicine that I can administer to you. You will have to continue striving to acquire it.” (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/108)

IslamicbooksHazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned:

“At present, the best occupation is that of imparting deeni 'ilm, especially for the one who has been endowed with 'ilm. This is the need of the time. The virtue of it is also so great that perhaps no other 'amal is equivalent to it in virtue. As long as the knowledge which a person imparted continues to be practised and imparted, rewards will continue accumulating in his book of deeds.” (Tuhfatul-Ulama, vol. 1, p. 45)

no-respectHazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaih) mentioned:

Let alone showing disrespect and having ill-feelings for the 'Ulama and A’immah-e-mujtahideen, even disrespecting a normal person or Muslim and having ill-feelings for him is not permissible under any circumstances. Allah Ta'ala forbid, if one disrespects any of these seniors then, remember that one will lose everything. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh pg. 62)

The Outcome of Serving the Pious Servants of Allah Ta’ala


Monday, 29 September 2014 15:02

zikr-beads1Once Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned:

Whenever I carry out any good action then Alhamdulillah I do not feel within my heart that this action is my achievement. Rather, I remember the teachings of my pious seniors. It was on account of the teachings of my pious seniors and their effort upon me in guiding me correctly that I was able to carry out such an action. The feeling then enters my heart that this is all the outcome of remaining in the company of the pious and serving them.

Hazrat then said: The truth of the matter is that I had received the du'aas of many pious servants of Allah Ta'ala, and whatever I have achieved is the fruits of their du'aas. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 1/86)

Akhlaaq (Sublime Character) and Nisbat (Special Connection with Allah Ta'ala)


Monday, 29 September 2014 15:01

Muhammad_PBUH__1032x774Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

Nisbat and akhlaaq (sublime character) are both distinct attributes. Each one is unique in its own way. As far as nisbat is concerned, it is a special connection one has with Allah Ta'ala. The more one strengthens one’s relationship with Allah Ta'ala (through carrying out pious deeds), the stronger one’s nisbat grows. On the contrary, if one falls short in this relationship (through committing sins), his nisbat with Allah Ta'ala weakens. On the other hand, akhlaaq (sublime character) relates to the beloved lifestyle of Nabi (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam). Emulating the mubaarak lifestyle of Nabi (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) and inculcating his mubaarak qualities is referred to as sublime character. At this juncture Hazrat Shaikh recited these couplets:

The colour of henna will only show its true effect once it permeates (i.e. the beauty of the sunnah will only show itself through a person’s sublime character, when the sunnah permeates a person’s heart and life). (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/111)
