The Method to Gain Acceptance in the Sight of Allah Ta'ala

PrintE-mail

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

Once a respected 'Aalim arrived and requested some advice. I told him that you are an 'Aalim of deen, what advice can I offer you? After requesting for the second time, I told him that I only remember one lesson which I continue mentioning. The lesson that I have learnt from my elders is that to the best of your ability, regard yourself as a complete non-entity (i.e. if you wish to gain acceptance in the sight of Allah Ta'ala, then do not attach any importance to yourself and do not have pride). These words had such an impact on the 'Aalim that he immediately began to weep. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 10/ 33)
