A Path to Righteousness

If you fear Allah(SWT) and keep in contact of people of Allah (SWT) then also you'll end up being pious.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011)

Two Actions and Their Effects

If you make planning to indulge in sins then you'll end up being a sinner. If you make plans to do acts of obedience of Allah(SWT) then you'll end up becoming righteous.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011)

Action and Precaution

Get connected to some person of Allah(SWT) but this person should be genuine.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011)

Caution About Zakat

Hadhrat Wala (Muhi-us-Sunnah) (RA) used to warn about giving Zakat to any Madarsa. He said that first make proper inquiry and only then give your Zakat to that Madarsa only then your Zakat will be considered paid. Today there are people who'll tell you tall stories about their Madarsa but actually all worldly things might be taking place there.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011)

An Advantage of Pledge

The meaning of Pledge (with a Shaikh) is that one comes to hate this world and love the next one. Whole of the house is filled with blessings of Allah(SWT) but this person is all the time aware that one day he (or she) has to leave this world.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011) 

A Dream of an Associate

Day before yesterday a person (an associate of Muhi-us-Sunnah (RA)) made a telephone call that he saw Muhi-us-Sunnah (RA) in dream. Hadhrat (RA) was asking whether this associate was doing certain pious acts or not. Hazrat Shaikh (DB) concluded from this that this person should become occupied in good deeds.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011)

The Least Advantage

Whether any body else listens to (your ) admonitions or not you should get busy with your own reformation.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011)

Environmental Problem

The whole environment is polluted (with bad character traits). How can one act righteously in this environment? Remember that covering (the shield from above troubles) is a Godly injunction. Why is it not being implemented?

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011)

Controlling the Body Parts

Whatever body parts are indulging in sins these will come under control if we try to remember and realize that Allah Most High is All-Hearing, All-Seeing, All-Aware and All-Knowing.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Friday September 9, 2011)

The Genuine and The Fake

If the Shaikh is merely interested in gifts then he is not a Shaikh at all.

(Sitting (majlis) on Friday, September 30, 2011)

Two Admonitions

Avoid useless things and try to generate concentration (khushua) in Prayers.

A Blessed Sitting

This Sitting (Majlis) began with the Praise of Lord (Hamd) and Peace (Salah) on Beloved Prophet (PBUH). Because of it the Sitting (Majlis) has become blessed.

Qari Amir Hasan Sahab (DB), Anona House, Friday, September 30, 2011

Bunch of Light

Remainder of Pious Predecessors Arifbillah Hadhrat Maulana Qari Amir Hasan Sahab Hafizahullah Damatbarkatuhu has arrived today morning at Anona House. His health is on the lower side as compared to his last visit but never the less his attended Prayers in the Mosque. As usual during his visits the number of people attending the Sitting (Majlis) was larger than normal attendance.

Trampling Modesty

Modesty is being trampled. As if funeral of modesty is taking place. This the Mercy of Allah Most High that he has not stopped our urination and defecation.

Second Hand Saying

Mufti Muhammed Usama said:
Nowadays Qari Amir Hasan Sahab(DB) is telling three things everywhere and with repetition-he'll repeat a single thing two or three times. He say that firstly we have stopped crying before Allah (SWT), secondly we have stopped consulting Allah(SWT) and thirdly we, in one way or other, are involved in usury based transactions.

Arzu Khan Sherwani

 Brother Arzu is Hadhrat Masihullah Khan Sherwani Jalalabadi(RA)'s nephew.  He occasionally visits Anona House. Today also he came during the Sitting (Majlis).

TSHS: Is it true that Hadhrat Jalalabadi(RA) was your elder uncle (Taya or tao in local dialect-not used by puritanical Urdu speakers)?

Arzu Sahab: Yes.

TSHS: Tell us something about him.

Arzu Sahab: I'll give you a book.

TSHS: That will be very nice but we'll want some verbal stories too!

Arzu Sahab: (Smiles)

TSHS: Somebody was mentioning a biography of Hadhrat Jalalabadi (RA) on Sunni Forum. Who has written it? Are you talking about that?

Arzu Sahab: I am talking about Sayings (malfoozat). And there is a biography that was written in Mewat. Another one by Ghayasuddin Sahab of Allahabad-an associate of Hadhrat. Then there is one that has been written in Pakistan.

TSHS: There is a brother who is an associate (mureed) of Mufti Nawal-ur-Rahman Sahab. He frequently talks about his Shaikh.

Arzu Khan: These are four brothers Jamal-Kamal-Nawal and I have forgotten the name of fourth brother-they got their education in Jalalabad.

Gems of the Day

By the Grace of Allah Most High two gems have been reported by two of our favourite blogs.
First one is from Noor of Nobility.

Avoiding Confusion & Doubts  

September 21, 2011 

Hazrat (db) said,
If two things are developed in an individual then all the doubts they have will leave.
1) Azmat (greatness/magnificence)
2) Muhabbat (love)
By questioning or by actual research, one does not solve anything. This just creates further doubts. The fact that doubts even develop in a person is a sign of the nonexistence of these two things. If a person doesn’t feel the greatness of what they are a part of, if we lack that love for our mashaa’ikh, then the only way to fix this is to develop these two things. And the way to do this is to be in the company of the ahle muhabbat. Once a person develops this azmat and muhabbat for everything, Hazrat Thanwi (rah) says that my experience tells me that a person, even if they want to, then they cannot find confusion or doubt.
Here Hazrat(db) means Maulana Mohammed Nabeel Ahmed Khan Sahib (DB). And this is a wonderful quotation. Actually confusions and doubts are the most debilitating things one can experience in life. Our Lord Most Merciful and Most Beneficent by His Grace reassures us in the beginning (after Fatiha) of the Holy Qur'an that you have no doubts that there is guidance for certain people. Our Masha-ikh make these things clear to us and above quote is such an example. Our modern life puts lots of doubts and confusion in our thinking and the solution is there in front of our eyes. Just develop reverence and love for people of Allah (in whatever way you can) and then you can not have confusions and doubts even if you want to have! Sub-han Allah.

The second gem is of course from Ashrafia. This one too is very cute.

Is This Islahi Ta’luq?

Posted on

An individual approached sayyidi wa sanadi Shaikh Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) with extreme reverence and admiration. After salutations were exchanged Shaikh inquired his purpose of visit. He replied that, ‘I have islahi ta’luq (relationship for self improvement) with you.’
Shaikh looked at him sternly and said, ” I do not recognize you at all.
What type of islahi ta’luq is this?
Is this something playful?
Whenever you feel like keeping in contact you decide to come and at other times you are absconding.
I am sorry. I can not assit in such type of relationship. Please, excuse me. Now you can go. Find someone else who agrees to this type of relationship. ”
Another such scenario occurred. However, the seeker (already a murid) admitted his mistake and asked for forgiveness. After admonsihing him Shaikh instructed,
‘Attend the weekly majlis regularly. Meet me after the majlis. If you are regular and serious with this then I will consider giving you permission to restart this relationship.’
Office, Darul Uloom, Karachi after duhar, 28th Ramadan 1432/ 29August 2011
To get to the sweetness of the episode we have to remember a couplet:
Hai Jano Muhabbat Agar Woh Khafa HoN
Gar Hum Bhi Khafa HoN To Muhabbat Nahi Hai

(Take it as love if he is angry
If I am angry then it's love lost)

So the anger and displeasure shown by the Shaikh(DB) in fact shows the presence of love. And if one detects that he is loved by a person like Mufti Taqi Usmani Sahab(DB) then lucky is the good characterization of such a soul.

The strange thing is that when a disciple (mureed) is being so loved every reader feels loved. strange are the ways of Allah(SWT).

Hakim-ul-Ummat(RA)'s Reverence for Haji Sahab(RA)

If someone tells me that Allah(SWT) has decided to wind up the sun and the stars and to recreate them for Haji Sahab (RA) then I'll not have even least bit of doubt about this news.

Involving Shaikh in Worldly Matters

Hazrat Thanwi(RA) had very strictly warned against asking Shaikh to solve worldly matters. Shaikh should be consulted for spiritual matters only. You can always ask for supplications that this is a worldly matter kindly supplicate for me.
