Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

The actual meaning of zikr is for a person to fulfil the command of Allah Ta‘ala that relates to him in every given situation. Allah Ta‘ala commands us in the Quraan Majeed saying:

یٰۤاَیُّهَا الَّذِیْنَ اٰمَنُوْا لَا تُلْهِکُمْ اَمْوَالُکُمْ وَلَاۤ اَوْلَادُکُمْ عَنْ ذِکْرِ اللّٰه

O you who believe! Do not let your wealth or children turn you away from the remembrance (command) of Allah Ta‘ala. (Surah Munaafiqoon v. 9)

Hence, while one is at home interacting with his family and children, or while one is engaged in trade and commerce, if he ensures that he remains obedient to Allah Ta‘ala and does not break His commands while fulfilling these worldly needs, then even though he is engaged in these occupations, he will be regarded as a person engaged in the remembrance of Allah Ta‘ala. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 57)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

My beloved friends! Value and appreciate the time which you have, and abstain from speaking unnecessarily.

We should all have the wish in our hearts that Allah Ta‘ala should bless all the various efforts of Deen, which are taking place in the world, with prosperity and allow them to succeed. Whether it is the masaajid, the madaaris or the maraakiz - the more efforts you make du‘aa for, the more you will progress and be rewarded by Allah Ta‘ala.

It is difficult for one person to participate in all the various deeni efforts. However, through making du‘aa for the progress and success of all these efforts, you will have a share in all of them. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in his mubaarak hadeeth, “Actions are rewarded according to their intentions.” Hence, if one makes multiple intentions when carrying out a single action, he will receive the reward for all the intentions which he made. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Shaikh 2/119)

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

This path of self-reformation leading to Allah Ta‘ala is extremely sensitive. Therefore, it is necessary for one to have a spiritual guide who is completely acquainted with the path. At times, a person does not understand the limits and begins to continuously grieve over his past sins to such an extent that he loses hope. This then becomes an impediment and barrier for him to progress. Therefore, it is necessary for one to refer to a spiritual guide. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/378-379)

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

The zikr of Allah Ta‘ala is like a fortress which protects one from the evil of the shayaateen. Hence, whenever one goes to a town or city for tableegh, then apart from propagating deen, one should also engage in zikr. In proportion to the evil of the environment, one should increase his zikr so that he may remain safe from the evil influences of shayaateen, jinn and people. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 52)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

Reciting one’s dhor of the Qur’aan Majeed in one’s nafl salaah can greatly help one to remember the Qur’aan. I have experienced this personally and many of my friends have also witnessed this.

From the number of paras which one has memorized, one should take a minimum of half a para daily and recite it once or twice while looking into the Qur’aan Majeed. Thereafter, one should try to recite the same portion throughout the day and night in one’s nafl salaah such as awwaabeen, tahajjud, etc. One should at least recite the portion once or twice. This practice is proven to be extremely effective in remembering and preserving the Qur’aan Majeed. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 459)
