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

In our opinion, the root malady and sickness of the ummah in this day and age is that their hearts are void of the enthusiasm and value of deen. If the concern and yearning for deen is created in them, and the importance and respect of deen is revived in their hearts, then you would see complete deen coming alive in their lives. The primary purpose of the effort of da’wat and tableegh is to make an effort to create the enthusiasm and value of deen in people’s hearts. Through the enthusiasm being created, they will be motivated to go to the ‘Ulamaa and learn and practice deen correctly. The purpose of this effort is not to just teach people to recite the kalimah and correct their salaah, etc. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 61-62)

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

If a person is addressed by any of his seniors (e.g. his parents, ustaaz, shaikh, etc.), then it is extremely disrespectful for him to ignore the senior and intentionally not reply to him. Similarly, it is disrespectful for him to answer them with a delay as delaying in replying will cause them some type of inconvenience. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/82)

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

My beloved friends! You should make it a point to continuously study and read kitaabs on the lives of our pious predecessors. Even though the blessed era of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is distant and has long passed, our pious predecessors are practical examples before us of the blessed lifestyle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Look at the humility with which our pious predecessors were blessed. My beloved friends! A person does not progress of his own accord and effort – rather it is Allah Ta‘ala who gives progress and success to whomsoever He wishes. You should therefore express humility and submission before Allah Ta‘ala at all times, and should regard others to be greater than yourself. (Malfoozaat-e-Hazrat Shaikh 2/159)

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

The divine assistance and unseen help of Allah Ta‘ala is not based on any physical means, and is not such that one is able to determine the time and manner of its occurrence. However, at the time when a servant is helpless, he turns his complete focus to Allah Ta‘ala and relies on Allah Ta‘ala entirely, then from the hidden treasures of Allah Ta‘ala, he is divinely assisted. The precondition for receiving the divine assistance of Allah Ta‘ala is imaan and placing one’s entire reliance and complete trust on Allah Ta‘ala, and not placing one’s reliance on the material means of the world. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pgs. 105-106)

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

When a person takes someone as his Shaikh or Deeni guide, then in order for him to benefit from the Shaikh, he will have to fulfil three essential requirements. These three requirements are among the rights which he owes to the Shaikh and should be borne in mind at all times. These requirements are:

- He should have i’tiqaad in him i.e. he should have mahabbat and respect for him and accept him to be a pious, rightly guided person who follows the sunnah.

- He should have i’timaad in him i.e. he should have confidence in the guidance and knowledge he imparts and regard him capable of guiding him correctly in Deeni matters.

- He should have inqiyaad for him i.e. he should follow the advices and teachings of the Shaikh diligently with complete commitment and dedication.
