Hazrat Moulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi (Rahmatullahi Alayh) once gathered all the children and people of his household. He then said to them: “I have called you all for a very special purpose. Alhamdulillah, I have undertaken a study of history. Therefore I am well aware of many great families in history – including families of Ulama and Ahlullah (pious personalities) – who lost the legacy of their great predecessors. Eventually irreligiousness crept into them and led to their destruction. Hence in the light of my study of history, I am mentioning to you three things which, if you act upon them, insha-Allah you will continue to flourish and as a family you will be saved from destruction.”
