A person once wrote to Hazrat Shaikh, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), informing him that he showed importance to the sunnah of sitting on the floor when partaking of meals. Hazrat Shaikh, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), was pleased and wrote the following reply:

I am extremely pleased to hear that you are sitting on the floor in emulation of the sunnah. In future as well, it is my wish and instruction to you that you should make an effort to the best of your ability to promote and propagate the blessed way of life of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and his Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). While promoting the mubaarak sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the way of his Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), if the people of the dunya look down upon you or view you as being backwards, then do not worry and do not pay any attention to them.

(Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 408)
