Hazrat Moulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah) mentioned the following:

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (rahimahullah) had prepared a kitaab named “Nashrut Teeb” in regard to the love of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The entire kitaab revolves around love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and through reading this kitaab, one can gauge the deep love within the heart of the author for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

During the time when Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (rahimahullah) was engaged in the compilation of Nashrut Teeb, Thana Bowan (the town in which Hazrat Thaanwi [rahimahullah] resided) was afflicted by a plague. It was noticed that on the day when Hazrat Thaanwi (rahimahullah) wrote any portion of this kitaab, there would be no reports of people passing away due to the plague. However, on the day when Hazrat Thaanwi (rahimahullah) did not write any portion of the kitaab, reports of many people passing away would be heard. When this observation reached Hazrat Thaanwi (rahimahullah) via many people, he would not leave out writing this kitaab on any day. It was through the barakah (blessings) of writing about the great virtues and esteemed position of Rasulullah (sallalahu alaihi wasallam) during that time that Allah Ta‘ala caused the plague to come to an end.

After mentioning the above incident, Hazrat Moulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah) concluded:

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

The tongue plays an important role in causing one to earn distinguished positions. If a person utilizes the tongue for good, and makes it the means for carrying out righteous works (e.g. he commands people to obey Allah Ta‘ala, recite the Quraan Majeed etc.), then he will be distinguished and recognized among people for the good which he carried out through his tongue (i.e. in this world and the Hereafter, he will be recognized for acquiring great rewards and a high rank on account of utilizing his tongue for good).

However, if he makes his tongue a tool for carrying out evil works and sins through involving himself in obscene speech or through verbally abusing people, then through this very tongue, he will be distinguished and recognized among people (in this world and the Hereafter) for the wrong works and evil deeds that he excelled in. At times, on account of the evil deeds carried out through this tongue, a person debases himself to such an extent that he becomes worse than a dog or even a swine. In regard to the use of the tongue and its consequences, the hadeeth shareef mentions:

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

My beloved friends! After one passes away, people will no longer think of him and remember him. Even one’s immediate family, wife, children, brothers and sisters will all forget about him. Perhaps on some occasions, certain people will remember him and convey reward for him. Hence, this life which Allah Ta‘ala has blessed you with is indeed very precious. You should value this life and make the best preparations for your Aakhirah while you can. (Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 201)

The Mother of all Spiritual Maladies

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

Greed is the root cause of all problems. It is such an evil trait and spiritual malady that it should be regarded as the mother of all spiritual maladies. It is on account of greed that disputes and fights occur, and it is on account of greed that most of the court cases take place. If it was not for the greed of wealth, then no person would have trampled the rights of the next.

Theft and zina also stem from greed for wealth and greed for haraam passions. Evil character also originates from the same root, as the friends of Allah Ta‘ala say that evil character stems from pride, which is the greed for recognition. Hence, even pride stems from greed. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/146)

The Essence of the Effort of Tableegh

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

The essence of our effort of Tableegh is to learn Deen from our seniors and to pass it on to our families and those upon whom we have influence. We should consider the people to whom we pass on Deen as our benefactors and people whose favours are upon us (on account of them being the means of our spiritual progress).

The more we pass on the kalimah (and Deen) to others, the more the kalimah will shine in our lives and reach perfection within us. The more people we encourage towards salaah, the more our own salaah will improve.

After quoting the aforementioned malfooz, the compiler of the malfoozaat of Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Manzoor Nu’maani (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), writes:

This is one of the important principles of Tableegh, that the person carrying out the effort of Tableegh must regard his goal to be his own improvement and reformation, and must not regard himself to be the one imparting hidaayat to others, as it is only Allah Ta‘ala that can bestow hidaayat to the people. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 38)
