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

The primary purpose of the effort of Da’wat and Tableegh is to turn people away from the wrongs that Shaitaan invites them towards and bring them to the complete obedience of Allah Ta‘ala. However, without effort and sacrifice, it will not be possible to achieve this purpose. Hence, to achieve this goal, people will be required to sacrifice their lives as well as their wealth for the cause of Deen.

In the case of Da’wat and Tableegh, sacrificing one’s life refers to one leaving his home and going out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala to spread the message of Allah Ta‘ala and propagate Deen, and sacrificing one’s wealth refers to one bearing his own expenses and using his own money to go out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 36)

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

A person once wrote a letter to me wherein he complained of himself not finding the desired motivation to perform salaah, make zikr and recite the Quraan Majeed. He asked me for the cure and solution to his problem. I mentioned to him that despite not finding the motivation and drive within himself to carry out the ‘ibaadah, he should still perform it and not leave it out. Through him remaining punctual on the ‘ibaadah, he will eventually find the desired level of motivation within himself as well as the quality of his ‘ibaadah improving. This is similar to a person who is unable to write correctly. Through him continuously practising to write correctly, he will eventually improve his writing ability. On the contrary, if he loses heart and leaves out writing on account of his weakness, he will never succeed in improving his writing skill and ability.

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned in reply to a person who complained about stray thoughts:

The best cure for stray thoughts mentioned in the hadeeth is for one not to pay any attention to them. This cure has proven to be extremely effective in repelling stray thoughts. Stray thoughts were something that even the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) experienced. However, when they would mention their condition to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he would advise them not to pay any attention to the stray thoughts that cross their minds. Therefore, one should neither pay any attention to these stray thoughts that cross the mind nor should he show any importance to them.

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

Those engaged in the effort of da’wat and tableegh are required to meet three classes of people in order to fulfil three Deeni objectives.

The first class of people whom they should meet are the ‘Ulama and Deeni elders. The object of going to the ‘Ulama and Deeni elders is to learn Deen and to benefit from their pious company.

The second class of people whom they should meet are the ordinary laymen who are far from Deen. The object of going to them is to encourage them towards Deen. Through encouraging them, they themselves will remain firm on Deen.

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

In order for one to benefit in Deen, one is required to associate with the pious and learn Deen. Completely disassociating oneself and remaining aloof from people is discouraged as it will be a means for harm coming to one’s Deen. However, in situations where disassociating oneself from certain classes of people is beneficial for one’s Deen, then even though it may be harmful to one’s dunya, it will not be discouraged, as it will be a means of safeguarding one’s Deen. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/59-60)
