The Importance of Effort with Du‘aa


Monday, 17 December 2018 15:28

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

Making du‘aa is extremely important and I do not deny it’s significance in any way. However, it is important for one to understand that merely sufficing on du‘aa without making a concerted effort to improve one’s life is incorrect. One will not see improvement in one’s life through sufficing on du‘aa.

Allah Ta‘ala mentions in the Quraan Majeed:

قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللّٰهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللّٰهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللّٰهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ ﴿٣١﴾

O Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Say (to your Ummah), “If you (claim to) love Allah then follow me, (through following me,) Allah Ta‘ala will make you beloved to Him and forgive your sins, and Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

The Train of Life


Monday, 10 December 2018 14:52

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

Time can be likened to a moving train. The hours, minutes and moments of a person’s life are like the carriages and compartments that are moving swiftly with the train, while his activities and occupations are like the passengers in the compartments of the train. Unfortunately, what has now happened is that our various worldly pursuits have occupied all the compartments of the train and have left no place for our deeni activities and works. As believers, we are required to aim for the highest goals and objectives, and instead of involving ourselves in the insignificant pursuits of the world, we should endeavor to carry out deeni works which are pleasing to Allah Ta‘ala and which will assist us in building our Hereafter. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 31)

The Essence of the Path of Self-Reformation


Tuesday, 04 December 2018 06:48

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

The purpose of self-reformation is to acquire the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala. In order for one to gain self-reformation, one requires two things; knowledge of the path and correct application of this knowledge. Self-reformation will be obtained through one adhering to the laws of sharee‘ah in accordance to the sunnah, regardless of whether the laws pertain to physical actions or spiritual actions.

In acquiring self-reformation, there are two things that will assist one greatly; remaining in zikr at all times, and remaining in the company of the pious servants of Allah Ta‘ala as much as one is able to. If it is difficult for one to remain in the company of the pious all the time, then the substitute is for one to study the lives of our pious predecessors and their advices.

The Ill-Effects of Misusing the Eyes


Monday, 26 November 2018 15:31

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

The environment in certain places is extremely dangerous to one’s imaan. In such environments, it is necessary for one to guard his gaze from sin at all times. When a person misuses his eyes and looks at haraam, then the first effect of this sin is that he no longer perceives the motivation and enjoyment in his ‘ibaadah. The second effect of this sin is that his ‘ibaadah begins to decrease. The third effect of this sin is that a person becomes inclined towards sins and thereafter falls deeper into committing evil deeds. May Allah Ta‘ala protect us all from the evils and harms of environments where sin takes place. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 411)

Remaining Patient at the Time of Hardships


Monday, 19 November 2018 14:48

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

A person should never ask Allah Ta‘ala to test him with calamities and difficulties. Instead, he should always beg Allah Ta‘ala for ‘aafiyah (ease). However, if Allah Ta‘ala tests a person with calamities and difficulties, then he should adopt sabr (patience) and understand that this is, in actual fact, a form of mercy from Allah Ta‘ala. Through adopting sabr and remaining patient, one’s sins will be forgiven and his rank will be raised in the Hereafter. One should also remember that all the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam), the Siddeeqeen and the pious friends of Allah Ta‘ala were tested during their lives with trials and tribulations and they gained great blessings and favours of Allah Ta‘ala through remaining patient. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 27)
