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

Through experience I can safely say that one should first examine one’s financial condition and accordingly spend. Spending within one’s means will save one from falling into financial constraints. Spread out your feet in accordance to the length of the blanket you use to cover yourself with. This point has been deduced from the hadeeth. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/25)

Endeavour to Inculcate the Mubaarak Qualities of Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) and his Sunnah

While addressing a gathering of 'Ulama, Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya Khandelwi (rahmatullahi 'alaih) mentioned:

"My beloved friends, you all should endeavour to study the shamaail (blessed character and noble qualities) of Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) and his mubaarak sunnah. As many sunnats one is able to inculcate within one’s life, one should do so. If one is unable to practise on any particular aspect or sunnah of the mubaarak life of Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam), then the least one should do is that one should love that sunnah from the bottom of one’s heart and one should feel to oneself that this is the greatest quality and action, and there is nothing better than this. He should feel that it is on account of his own weakness that he is unable to practise upon this sunnah."

Hazrat Shaikh (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) also said: “My respected uncle (Hazrat Moulana Ilyas Saheb rahmatullahi 'alaihi) advised me to emulate the sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) and constantly encourage others to do the same.” (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/33)

During a discussion which related to an 'Aalim who refrained from accepting doubtful wealth, Hazrat Moulana Ashraf 'Ali Thaanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaih) mentioned:

Nowadays, the required level of taqwa and caution is not seen among people in matters relating to wealth. There are many people who confine piety to their 'ibaadaat (i.e. virtuous deeds and actions). Many are even punctual on tahajjud, chaasht and ishraaq and in completing their wazeefas. However the inordinate passion and love for wealth within their hearts does not seem to decrease. As a result, they do not exercise the required level of precaution in their business dealings and monetary affairs and continue to consume doubtful wealth. (Malfoozaat-e-Hakeemul Ummat 10/27)

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (rahmatullahi alaih) mentioned:

"The spirit one needs to constantly have is how can one be of service to the creation and how can one’s actions be a means of preserving deen. We should not do things to earn popularity among people. As far as popularity is concerned, we should hope and desire that people do not even come to know of our good works carried out during our lifetime and nor should the people speak of our good deeds after our demise." (Malfoozaat-e-Hakeemul Ummat 10/19)

This Worldly Life is like a Dream

Hazrat Shaikh, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya Saheb (rahmatullahi alaih) while explaining the reality of this worldly life mentioned:

“This worldly life can be likened to a person who finds himself in an air conditioned room being massaged by many servants while others are at his beck and call anxiously waiting to serve him. Suddenly his eyes open and he realises that what he was visualizing was nothing but a dream and in reality he is in a prison cell stuck behind bars. On the other hand, another person sees himself in a dream while being severely beaten and lashed, undergoing difficulty upon difficulty. When his eyes open, he sees himself safe and sound and realizes that all the pain and suffering was nothing but a dream. He feels relieved and is grateful to Allah Ta’ala that what he was going through was just a dream and not a reality."
