Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) once mentioned:

O my beloved friends! Remember death continuously! Continue pondering over the spectacle of death. At the time one departs from this world, he will leave behind all his belongings and he will leave empty handed. (Malfoozaat of Hazrat Shaikh pg. 153)

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

Take a look at the level of respect that Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) possessed. Once someone had asked him whether Aswad was more virtuous or Alqamah (two illustrious students of Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas'ood [radhiyallahu 'anhu])? He replied by saying: “Our mouths are not worthy of even taking their names, how can we ever imagine comparing between them.” Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) was overwhelmed and engulfed with basic etiquette and this was natural in him. Similarly, a Sahaabi was asked whether Nabi (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) was bigger or he was bigger. The intention of the questioner was in regard to age; however he used the word أكبر which means bigger or greater. The Sahaabi replied that Nabi (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) is bigger and greater than me however I am older (in age). (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 10/ 49)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaih) once said: “If you are compelled to take a loan then ensure that you have the intention to pay back the loan at the time the loan is due. When the appointed time approaches, then immediately settle the debt (even if it means that you have to take another loan to settle the current loan). Remember, if one’s heart is clean and ones intention is to pay back the loan at its due time, then Allah Ta'ala will certainly assist him. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/23)

The Benefit of Recording a Transaction or Asking for a Receipt when Dealing

Once Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned that a well-known proverb in the Arabic language is:

“Live like brothers but deal like strangers”

There are many advantages and benefits through one adopting clarity and system in one’s dealings, whether one takes a loan, gives a loan, or one settles an outstanding debt, in all cases one should ensure that one reduces it in writing and one keeps a record of the transaction. In this way one will save oneself from inconvenience or incurring any loss. For example, when one hires the services of the washer-man (laundromat) then he should ensure that he asks for a receipt as a proof of the transaction. In doing so, one benefit one receives is that in the event the clothes get misplaced by the washer-man (laundromat), the washer-man will not be able to deny that you gave your clothes to him, as you have proof of the transaction. Another benefit one receives is that even if one loses the receipt, since one had taken a receipt from the washer-man, the washer-man will remain constantly aware and conscious that he had given you a receipt for your clothes, hence he will certainly return your clothes to you. These beautiful teachings of sharee'ah (i.e. recording the transaction, business dealings, etc.) that we have received are all favours and bounties upon us from Allah Ta'ala.

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) once mentioned:

The hadeeth has shown a way to those who did not fulfil the rights of their parents during their parent's lifetime, as to how they may make amends after their demise. The hadeeth states that such a person should seek forgiveness on behalf of his deceased parents, send esaale thawaab for them and keep in contact and show kindness and respect to all those who were close to his parents (i.e. family, friends and associates). Through carrying out these actions, one will be forgiven by Allah Ta'ala and be blessed with the good fortune of being counted from amongst those children who were obedient to their parents. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/39)
