People understand good character to mean being friendly and speaking politely even though the person may harbour enmity for others.

The statement of Moulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi رحمة الله عليه is quoted in Al-Kowkab-ud-Durri where he says that khulq (good character) is to interact with others in such a manner that Allah Ta`ala and the people become pleased with one.

How could Allah Ta`ala ever be pleased if someone speaks politely but harbours enmity? How can others be pleased if they learn that this person has enmity for people?

   

Our Istighfaar (seeking of repentance) is in need of Abundant Istighfaar

Hadhrat Sirri Saqati رحمة الله عليه has mentioned: استغفارنا يحتاج إلى استغفار كثير (Our istighfaar (seeking of repentance) is in need of abundant istighfaar). This is because our istighfaar is a mere lip service and it is not done sincerely. Thus, it amounts to mockery of Allah Ta`ala.

It is similar to the case of where a person beats another and then asks for forgiveness insincerely without any remorse for his doings. (He is not asking for forgiveness but rather mocking the person.)

   

Tasawwuf is a royal science

Hadhrat Moulana Raipuri رحمة الله عليه used to say, “Tasawwuf is a royal science and one needs a royal temperament and understanding for it. For example, one needs the understanding of Moulana Khalil Ahmad Saharanpuri رحمة الله عليه and Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi رحمة الله عليه.  This responsibility has now been placed on the heads of ignorant ones like us.”
