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.

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)

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)

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)

Adab (Respect)

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)
