(Correspondence of Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi rahimahullah)

Letter:  (A person complained of not attaining satisfaction and fulfilment despite him reading the kalimah three hundred times daily. He therefore requested that some practice should be prescribed which will purify the soul and allow it to reach lofty heights).

Reply:  Daily recite the third kalimah, durood shareef and istighfaar one hundred times each; morning and evening. Do this punctually and with the presence of mind. Also recite the Quran-e-Kareem with complete respect, keeping in mind that Allah Ta’ala is listening to you. Struggle and discipline is the foundation and the essence of the reformation of one’s character. The daily practices and zikr are there to assist us. (Maktoobaat vol. 5, pg. 25)

Letter:  (The letter was not published. The writer apparently complained of falling again into the very sin which he had repented from and that he had asked forgiveness for.)

Reply:  A person repents over his sin and seeks forgiveness but then falls into that sin again. Hence he repents again and at the time of repentance he makes a firm resolution not to commit that sin in future.

Letter:  Out of fear that I might cause mischief and trouble, I abstain from speaking out the truth. Also due to my past weaknesses I feel ashamed to call towards deen. Thus I choose to remain silent. Kindly guide me.

A Disobedient Wife

(Correspondence of Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi rahimahullah)

Letter:  I am in great distress. My wife never listens to me. She fights with my parents, my brother and my sister and she even threatens to kill me. I have tried all possible ways to make her understand. I have even lived separately from her. Instead of making her understand that she should refrain from such behaviour, her parents further incite her and encourage her in her wrong ways. Thus she has become even more bold in her actions. I request you to make dua for her and also to show me some way out of my difficulty.

(Correspondence of Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi rahimahullah)

Letter:  I have a lot of anger in me. At times if a student does not carry out the work given to him, I become very angry. My nafs (innerself) pacifies me that I am doing this for the reformation of the student. Sometimes when angry, I focus on my own faults and weaknesses, yet my anger does not subside.

Reply:  At the time of anger when the thought comes to mind that you are angry for the reformation of the student, then ponder over the following:

Hadhrat Anas (radiyallahu anhu) served Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) for almost ten years. He says: “At times Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) instructed me to do some work but I would reply that I will not do it.
