Sayings of the Pious

The Reward in Sickness


Monday, 08 September 2014 15:29

On one occasion Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned:

Apart from the abundant virtues that have been reported regarding sickness, the hadeeth mentions the immense rewards for the sick. It is well-known that when a person exercises patience, he is rewarded. However some researchers (Muhaqqiqeen) opine that in sickness a person receives a separate reward for sickness and a separate reward for being patient. Since sickness is not in one’s volition, instead it comes from the side of Allah Ta’ala, and patience is in one’s volition, therefore both are two separate things and a person will be rewarded for both separately. I always say that in principle, even though a person does not exercise patience when he is ill, he will still receive the reward for sickness. However, he will also be taken to account for not fulfilling the command of Allah Ta’ala with regard to exercising patience. In the month of Ramadhaan many people fast, yet they do not perform their salaah. They will be rewarded for fasting, though they will be taken to account for not performing salaah.

Punctuality on Daily Practices


Monday, 01 September 2014 11:16

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) said: "It is imperative that one shows paramount importance to one's zikr and daily practices. I had witnessed Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) and my beloved uncle (Moulana Ilyas Khandelwi) punctually carrying out their zikr despite their old age. Furthermore, I noticed my father and Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) being punctual upon their tahajjud in the early parts of the morning, sitting in isolation and crying bitterly beseeching Allah Ta'ala. They cried in the same way as a child in maktab cries when he is being reprimanded. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/112)

Adopting a Respectful Attitude when Correcting a Senior


Monday, 01 September 2014 11:14

Once Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

On one occasion while I was seated in the musjid, it occurred to me that I required some small change. One person had some small change, therefore I handed over the notes to him and in return he gave me the change. Present nearby was one of my students, Moulana Muhammad Rashid Saheb. Witnessing this deal taking place in the musjid, he came up to me and asked me in an utmost respectful manner whether this deal falls under the ambit of a business transaction? At once I realized my mistake and thanked him for bringing it to my attention, and said that I did not realize that this was a business deal in sharee'ah (bay'us sarf) and thus impermissible to be transacted in the musjid. Thereafter I cancelled the deal by returning the small change to that person and took my money back. Subsequently, I asked that person to come out of the musjid and renew the transaction. Nevertheless, we went out of the musjid and I gave him the money while he gave me the change that I required. I was really pleased by the manner in which Moulana Muhammad Rashid Saheb conducted himself. It was necessary for him to inform me that the transaction is impermissible; however he expressed it with utmost respect by asking me whether it fell under the ambit of a sale or not.

Wealth is Protected by Fulfilling Zakaat


Monday, 25 August 2014 09:06

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned: “If one does not discharge one’s zakaat from one’s wealth, then that zakaat eventually will destroy the entire wealth, either by a fire burning it, or by being spent in court cases, or on medical expenses or some other unnecessary purposes. On the other hand, if one discharges the zakaat, then Allah Ta'ala will bless one with barkah in one’s wealth and the wealth will not decrease.” (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/39)

Acquiring Perfection in Deen


Monday, 25 August 2014 07:57

Once Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

A complete and perfect person is one who is soaked in ‘Ilm and conducts himself with adab (etiquette). Our pious predecessors were a combination of both. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 10/ 49)
