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

Continuously study and examine the lives of our Akaabir (pious predecessors and seniors). After studying the lives of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu 'ahnum) I reached this conclusion that all the Sahaabah were superb. Though each Sahaabi possessed a unique “colour”, all were common in emulating the blessed sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam). Similarly, I have also witnessed that our Akaabir (pious predecessors and seniors) possessed different magnificent qualities and all diligently held on to the blessed sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam). These great luminaries can be compared to the flowers of a garden. The splendour of the garden can be gauged through the fragrance and beauty of it’s flowers. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/25)

The Most Despised and Abhorrent Action is Pride

Once Hazrat Moulana Ashraf 'Ali Thaanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaih) mentioned: 

According to my understanding, nothing can be more despicable than pride. I detest the sin of pride more than any other sin. Even though there are many grave sins such as committing adultery, consuming intoxicants, etc. which are extremely serious, however, I have a natural aversion and hatred for pride due to it being a branch of shirk. Despite Allah Ta'ala being the greatest, by regarding oneself to be great and better than others, one has attributed greatness to oneself. Hence is this not a type of shirk? A proud person, who is a mere slave, is in actual fact attributing a quality (greatness) to himself which is exclusive for Allah Ta'ala. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 10/ 54)

Islamic Etiquette

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf 'Ali Thaanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

On one occasion I reprimanded a servant for carrying a deeni kitaab and his socks both in the same hand and they were touching each other. Hazrat (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) says that in this day and age basic etiquettes of deen have left the lives of people. Moulana Ahmad Ali Saharanpuri Saheb (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) writes that students who carry their deeni kitaabs in their left hand and their shoes in their right hand are showing disrespect to the kitaabs of deen, on account of this being contrary to Islamic etiquette. It seems as though they are showing respect and giving preference to their shoes over the deeni kitaabs. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 10/ 36)

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)
