Calmness and Tranquility

Sitting (Majlis) time on Friday, December 30, 2011.
Tranquility just before the Sitting begins.
The tranquility that can be experienced only before the Sitting and only here.
Also some times the environment becomes very silent after the tea time.
This silence is very soothing and very rare too.
Never experienced before coming to the Sittings.
Nor seen at any other place too.
And all thanks are due to Allah Most High for such precious blessings.
May He continue these blessings at all those places where He is has already given them.
Accept O Lord merely by your unbound Mercy.

Back to Routine

Hazrat Qari Amir Hasan Sahab (DB) has left today and the things are back to their routine at Anona House. It seemed so long before Hazrat Shaikh (DB) came back.

All for the Same

Sub-han Allah, Alhamdulillah and Allahu Akbar-all the Remembrance of Allah(SWT) take you nearer to Jannah.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, December 22, 2011)

They Remember Excessively

(We) got this news that there is a person in Delhi who recites Darood Sharif two thousand times daily. There is a person in Madras (Chennai) whose routine is much more than this.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, December 22, 2011)

Prefering Non-Islamic Things

When there is an open permission from the university to wear Islamic dress but some chooses to wear other dresses then it only shows that this person prefers the attire of other people. (Qari Ilyas Sahab (DB))

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, December 22, 2011)

Prophet (PBUH)'s Salam

 (Qari Amir Hasan Sahab (DB))
When beloved Prophet (PBUH) reached home in the night he'd present his Salam with such a voice that the people who were awake would answer it while the sleeping people will not be disturbed. (This is how he(PBUH) delivered the rights of the people in the family.) Hazrat Abdul Haq Muhaddis Dehlawi (RA) said that this much of love of the family members is necessary so that it induces you to deliver their rights. By presenting Salam to the people in the house one receives abundance (barkah). Barakah means that necessities are fulfilled with small amount of means. Lack of barakah is the state when you have to spend hundreds for a work that is worth tens only and thousands for a task that is worth hundreds only. Beloved Prophet (PBUH) used to present Salam even to the empty house.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Two Benefits

By indulging in remembrance of Allah(SWT) it becomes easy to give up sins and it becomes easy to indulge in acts of obedience.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Half Baked Steps

Name has been registered among the disciples but there is no concern about referring to the Shaikh.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

The State of a Majzub

The people who are in the state of being Majzub have become engrossed in a single name of Allah(SWT) to such an extent that they are not aware of the world around them. Some people praise them to unnecessary heights. This is not an objective, the real objective is to act on Shariah.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

To Wail or Not to Wail

Noha is an Arabic word whose meaning is to express sorrow. It is not the same as wailing and breast beating. That is what some people take it to be.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

One Following the Other

Remember your failings. When you remember them then you'll get ability and capability (taufeeq) to repent.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

It is Conditional

Faithful have been given the glad tidings but some conditions have been imposed with this like abstinence from useless talk and implementation of Prayers.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Unnecessary Uproar

There too much of controversy being created about Wasila ( giving reference in Supplications). People scream that this will lead to polytheism and all that.  This indicates that these people do not have the requisite knowledge.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Friendship of Allah (SWT)

Go to the people of Allah(SWT) and ask them that you want make friendship with Allah(SWT). They will tell you what to do. What to adopt and what to leave.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Remembrance and Sunnah

Indulge in Remembrance of Allah (SWT) according to Sunnah.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Closer and Closer

How to be achieve closeness to Allah(SWT)? Meet His special people - His friends. These are the pious and God fearing(muttaqi). These are the one's who are called His Friends. A person who is God fearing is also His Friend and very one of His Friends is God fearing.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Long Winding and Useless

Whenever a few people gather together there in indulgence in long conversations and all of it is aimless.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

How to be Close to Allah(SWT)?

By remembering the Prophets(AS) you become closer to Allah (SWT). Among all the Prophets(AS) beloved Prophet (PBUH) is the last one his remembrance too increases closeness to Allah(SWT). To this end recite Darood in abundance. Today our tongues are busy in useless talk. We indulge in lying and back biting. So much so that man stoops down to plain abusive words.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Audit of Days Work

In the morning as well as in the evening make an audit of your actions. Ask yourself for whom each and every task has been performed. Today all of our actions are transpired in our lust for this world.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Thank You Readers

 At the tea time after the Sitting (Majlis) Hazrat Qari Amir Hasan Sahab (DB) who has arrived at Anona House yesterday inquired as to who is Maripat.
 Hazrat Shaikh Hakim Muhammed Kalimullah Sahab (DB) pointed out to your humble correspondent and also remarked that the elders had talked about this sinner in the Sittings (Majalis).
Since the elders have just returned from Haj it was a rather overwhelming news for yours truly. The obvious reason might have been this reporting of the the sayings of these elders and in all probability some you dear readers might have mentioned to Qari Sahab (DB). Hazrat Shaikh (DB) has been aware about this activity, in deed it was started with permission, but there was no reason to communicate it to Hazrat Qari Sahab (DB) for in deference to Hazrat Shaikh (DB) he speaks very few words. Anyway now that some one or others of you have brought it to his notice and he looks at it with love yours truly feels as if these meager attempts have been accepted by Allah(SWT). May He provide abundance in His blessings in this regard and in other things too. May Allah(SWT) grant you too a reward according to His Glory. Supplications for continued acceptance as well as ability to continue the work are requested from the core of heart.
(Tea Time on Thursday, December 22, 2011)

Thirteen Rounds

This consists of 200 hundred recitations of Negation-Affirmation (Negation=Laa ilaha, Affirmation=illallah). This cleans the heart of undesirable affiliations to other than Allah(SWT). Then there are 400 Affirmations. This infuses the heart with closeness to Allah(SWT). Further fortification is done by double Personal Name (Allahu Allah) done 600 times. The round is concluded with praise using Personal Name (Allah) that is done a 100 times. This makes the total 13 rounds of Remembrance.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Closeness by Proxy

A person close to Prophets(AS) is close to Allah(SWT).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Mistakes by Seniors

An elder found a mistake in an article that his Shaikh gave him for reading. This disciple did not assert that there is some thing wrong in the narration. He said that Hazrat I can not figure a certain word and will you be so kind to identify it. The Shaikh realized the mistake and rephrased his statement and all got sorted out without any fuss. Thus one needs wisdom to affect correction in people.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Mistake and Apology

There was this incidence of a person writing in favour of a deviant ideology. This type of events do take place. Man is fully prone to commit mistakes. When it was pointed out to him that this is not the right thing to do then he accepted his mistake and tendered an apology, repented and refreshed his old connection and returned to the old path. This is commendable. This really pleased the heart. He did not try to fuzz the situation by lame excuses. The trick is to consult a Mufti before you publish anything. The truth about a mistake is that if it is done publicly then the apology too must be public while a mistake done privately is written off with a private repentance itself.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Levels of Etiquette

Etiquette has got nuances that are not accessible to all.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011)

Tidbits from Haram Sharief

Like last year Hazrat Shaikh (DB) ended up meeting Shaikh Huzaify and Shaikh Awwamah. Also there was a meeting with Shaikh Salah Al-Budair. There was some meeting which Hazrat Shaikh(DB) and Shaikh Al-Budair addressed. In the Sitting (Majlis) held on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 Hazrat Shaikh (DB) warned against the dangers of authenticating the activities of Ahl-e-Tashi'e.

Saturday, December 17, 2011

The Long Awaited Arrival

Hazrat Shaikh Hakim Muhammed Kalimullah Sahab (DB) is expected to reach Anona House, Insha Allah Al-Aziz, in few hours today.

Hafiz Anwar-ul-Haq Sahab(RA)

Hafiz Anwar-ul-Haq Sahab who established the Arabic Madarsa at the Sir Syed Nagar Jama Masjid expired today morning after Fajr Prayers. May Allah(SWT) forgive his sins, elevate his stature and grant  patience and forbearance to the aggrieved family.

Verily we are for our Lord and unto Him is our return.

Downward and Upward

Any one avoiding Sunnah will keep falling. Any one acting according to Sunnah will keep rising.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Condition for Effectiveness of Obedience

When are the acts obedience to Allah(SWT) are acceptable to Him? When you avoid committing sins.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

The Only Refuge

Go to People of Allah-(the People of World ca not provide any refuge today for the) World is in a state of turmoil today.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

On Knowledge and Action

Acquire knowledge and act upon it. Act upon each and every piece of it. Specially the people of knowledge should pay attention to this that they act upon their knowledge and motivate their near and dear ones also to act.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Presence of Sunnah

If Sunnah enters your heart then you are a success.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Face of Shah Hardoi (RA) at the Time of Death

At the time of death Shah Hardoi (RA) has a smile on his face. Thus face was such as if rays of light (noor) were oozing out.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

A Higher Stature

A higher status is to keep one oneself busy in remembrance of Allah(SWT) at all times.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Followers of Imam Shaf'ei (RA)

Shawaf'ey (followers of Imam Shaf'ei (RA)) offer their Fajr Prayers immediately after appearance of morning (Tulu'a-al-Fajr).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Caution Time

The caution time for the Fajr Prayers (to avoid praying during sun rise) for the common folks is twenty minutes. For the educated people it is ten minutes in summer and twelve in winter.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Ease in Work

The more you supplicate from Allah(SWT) easier your task becomes. These things are inculcated in the company of the pious (People of Allah(SWT)). If you recite Surah Yaseen in the morning then you'll get ease in all the tasks till evening.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Who is a Miskeen?

Miskeen is the one with a broken heart. Today we have reduced this thing to a mere proverb.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Friday, December 9, 2011

About Knowledge

Allah(SWT) himself has asked us to supplicate to Him for knowledge. Go to the people of Allah-they will tell you how to do that. Though they have small amount of knowledge but their action (upon their knowledge of Islam) is more.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

A Few Short Instructions

You at least make Supplications to your Lord. Show your humility. Do not show your arrogance or rebellion. Whenever a crisis confronts you then immediately turn to Allah(SWT). Our actions are of low quality, broken type. And our knowledge itself can be snatched by Him in a moment. (We must not rely upon our actions and knowledge but His Mercy.)

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

I'll Climb the Mountain

A slave's duty is to be obedient and submissive. He should not get bent upon rebellion. Hazrat Nooh (AS) called his son but he refused and said that he'll climb the mountain. Even today mind gets dizzy at the houses made by those people. (Who were destroyed for their intransigence and rebellion.)

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

The Return of the Deluge

(Once again excessive rain disturbed the routine of life last night.) As soon as it was known (that water is flooding the rooms in Hazrat Shaikh's house) there were some young men, they got busy in flushing it out. At the same time supplications were also started (by Hazrat Shaikh (DB)).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

(One young man was younger brother of Mufti Muhammed Adil of Madarsa Shahi, Muradabad.)

Valuing Every Day

The moment it is the morning become guarded that Allah(SWT) has given an opportunity to indulge in obedience. It is a burden on the Baser Self but be agreeable to the decision of Allah(SWT).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011)

Sources of Illness

(Qari Amir Hasan Sahab (DB))
 There are only two sources of illness. Stomach and mind. Mind gets sick by watching TV. When the females of the family will watch unlawful men then it will lead to reduction in modesty.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

PS: A girl was over heard telling his brother that a particular hero was looking very handsome. May Allah(SWT) protect every believing man and woman from obscenity.

Redundant Physician

(Qari Amir Hasan Sahab (DB))
A king sent a physician to beloved Prophet (PBUH) to serve the Muslims. He lived for one year in Madinah but no one fell ill in that duration. He asked the reason for this. Beloved Prophet (PBUH) said that the people of this place do not sit down to eat till they are very hungry and they get before completely filling their belly. The physician said that there is no need for a physician to such people. (May Allah(SWT) be well pleased with them.)

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

Care for Covering

Whatever body parts get exposed it results in unlawful. Particularly tight clothes for women fall into that category.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

Wearing Pants

Those who wear pants they should keep shirts out in religious gatherings.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

Pleasure With Sin

To take pleasure in sin is even more harmful.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

A Snippet

There is cute little incantation: Alllahumma maghfirli warhamni. O Lord forgive me and have Mercy on me. Keep it in circulation on your tongue.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

A Pair of Tools

There is Asking for Forgiveness from Allah (SWT) (Astaghfar) and then there are Prayers. Use them to please Allah(SWT).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

Dragging the Masha-ikh

Today we present worldly talks to the Elders. We narrate worldly problems and matters. We ask for Supplications for worldly matters only. Though they do make the supplications but they do not like. They make supplications themselves and ask others also to do the same.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

The Nawab, the Governor

Nawab Chhatari was the Governor of the most populous state of India. He went to meet Hazrat Wala (Muhi-us-Sunnah Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab (RA)). The Siiting (Majlis) by Hazrat Wala was under progress. Nawab Sahab left the official paraphernalia behind and sat in the shoes of the attendees since there was no empty space available. Soon Hazrat Wala's sight fell on Nawab Sahab and he called him to sit beside him. This was the humility Nawab Sahab had. Today we introduce ourselves with distinctions attached like I am a Caliph of that Shaikh. This is self-praise and vanity.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

Mine and Yours Untruely

Hazrat Muhammed Ahmed Pratpgarhi (RA) used to say about Hazrat Wala (Muhi-us-Sunnah Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab (RA)) that my disciple is his disciple and his disciple is my disciple. Today even in matters of deen there is Party system. The way there is only one father but there may be many uncles similarly in religion you have only one Shaikh but there might be many other elders who are like uncles.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

Endure the Endearing

Shaikh Wasiullah Sahab (RA) used to say that if you find the Shaikh endearing then endure him.

Miserable Progress

In around six months of 2010AC about fourteen hundred items were reported. In twelve months of 2011AC about half that many shall be reported, IA. This will look like miserable progress which it is. But it was promised last year that those who find the pace of material appearing here a bit fast should rest assured that soon the speed will slow down. Unfortunately that is what has happened. Unfortunately because there is lots of material that has not appeared but should appear. So kindly keep supplicating.

The Female Preachers

One person has informed that foreign girls have arrived. They speak spotless Urdu. They are inviting people to Christianity.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

The Character of Companions (RA)

A girl was sent to test the faith of the Companions (RA). None of them looked up to see her. They had the fear of Allah(SWT) in their hearts.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

The Taste of the Narrative

By reading a single sentence one can judge as to how much verbosity is there in the text and how much of sincerity.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

No Discrimination Here

There was a person who came to visit. He is a good scholar but in his life his father did not employ him in his Seminary (Madarsa). Similarly  Hazrat Wala (Muhi-us-Sunnah Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab (RA) did not employ his only son in his Seminary (Madarsa). Today we do not have the right religious spirit. Father establishes the Seminary (Madarsa) and the son takes over after his death.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

Four Relevant Names

Allah Most High is All-Hearing, All-Seeing and All-Knowing and Al-Aware. Memorize these four names and keep them in your mind always.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

PS: These are the names useful in the context of giving up sins.

Waning Modesty

Modesty is slowly waning. remember modesty is a department of religion (deen). It modesty dies so does religion.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

The Creative Crafty Fund Raiser

A man came to collect funds for a Seminary (Madarsa). People asked how many young ones were there in the Seminary. He said 700. When people inspected the site there was merely a tin shade at the location and about 700 young chicks were being reared there.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

The Rented Speaker

There was this speaker who demanded a certain price for his sermon. Till the demand was not met he did not come to the microphone to make his speech. This is like selling religion.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

The New Idea

There one more new idea has been floated that it is allowed to take money for reciting Qur'an in Taraweeh. People are announcing such things in posters.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

An Old Event

Got an opportunity to visit Gwalior in 1966AC. An elder made a very nice sermon but after coming out this very same person started describing the beauty of a young man. That scene does not go away from eyes even today.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

The Fear of Great Friends of Allah

Even the great friends of Allah(SWT) were persistent in their supplications for getting saved from sins (then how can we be so lax?)

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

Road to Chastity

Keep protecting your body parts from sins-you shall turn into a chaste person.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

The Contradiction in Personality

The external appearance is of pious people but there is no concern about reforming the habits.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

Prophets (AS) and Friends of Allah

When even Prophets(AS) prayed that O Allah(SWT) till I am alive do not allow me to commit any sin, even though they were innocent people, then why will the Friends of Allah(SWT) not do the same?

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

Foundation of Success

The current running topic concerns Character (akhlaq) and Sincerity (ikhlas). Both of them are important things. The foundation of success is laid on them. And only that Sincerity is reliable that is technically correct.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Thursday, September 8, 2011)

Personal Fault

(We) keep receiving the letters everyday that the person is a worker of Jama-at but he is ignoring his duties. What is the fault of the Jama-at in this?

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

Utilizing Time

Whatever time you get make proper use of it.  Do not waste it. Use it in Remembrance of Allah(SWT). Keep doing your duties too. Giving up work is not the object.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

New Mode of Rebellion

Avoid rebellion. Today a curse is becoming endemic-chatting. We indulge in chatting (on internet)-ha ha and ho ho are taking place.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

Unbalanced Diet

Today we keep our body fresh and our soul hungry. We eat good food but in Prayers we have fits of guffawing.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

Road to Failure

Today we are failing because we want fame. Our Jama-at, our Shaikh, our Monastery, our work. Whatever you do do it for Allah(SWT). Work is the object-not the fame.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

Status of Our Virtue

Our character is not reformed. Lots of immodesty is present there in our behaviour. We have done Haj and we have done Umrah but we have still not changed even our dress (to bring it in line with Islamic dress code).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

A Great Blessing

Chastity is a great blessing. Eyes should be chaste and heart should be chaste.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

Hold With Your Teeth

Do not loose your grip on chastity and virtue.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

Real Good Deeds

Good deed is to act in a pious manner in an impious environment.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

Worthless World

This world is perishable. What will you get by earning it? I had seen the chambers of Shah Wasiullah Sahab(RA). It was six and half feet long and three feet wide. It had no fan of any type in it.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

The Messenger and the Tyrant

Who was it who was sent to Fir'aun? It was Hazrat Musa (AS)-a great Prophet. But what is the instruction? Talk softly. This is etiquette that is being inculcated. This is called upbringing. This is the teaching of etiquette. When you go to a Shaikh then go there for upbringing, rearing and breeding.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Wednesday, September 7, 2011)

Surgeon vs Shaikh

 However close friend of yours a surgeon is he'll use his scalpel on your body. In case of a Shaikh at the slightest questioning by him we start complaining and saying that there is too much of disciplining there with that Shaikh.

Ninth Generation

An elder became happy with a person and asked him what should be the prayers and blessings for him. Latter person asked for knowledge in the family. The Elder prayed for this. This was related to me by (pointing to a visitor from Purkazi village in district Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh in India) his father. He is the seventh generation Hafiz in his lineage.His son and grandson too are Huffaz.

Reward of Hard Work

Hard work of a generation gives fruit for many coming generations. Reverse too is true.

(After Sitting (Majlis) Tea Time on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Expecting from Worldly Powers

We do not bet to our Lord Most High today and we do have our eyes on the worldly powers. Whole of the Muslim world is on the verge of destruction (by our heedlessness).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Glad Tidings For You

Man gets glad tidings (of forgiveness and pleasure of Allah(SWT)) in this world itself. But we have not really learned to ask (Allah(SWT) for it).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

May Lord Forgive

We are indulging in lots of useless talk in these times. And if you remind then people will enthusiastically start chanting, "May Allah(SWT) forgive us, May Allah(SWT) forgive us." This is display of lack of shame.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Travelers of Hereafter

(In reference to instruction by Hazrat Wala (Muhi-us-Sunnah Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab (RA).)
Do we recite the first Kalima?
Do we indulge in Asking for Forgiveness (Astaghfaar)?
Do we recite Surah Yaseen?
Do we recite Surah Mulk?
This is an indication whether we are preparing for the hereafter or not.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Commenting on a Sunnah

(May Lord Most High forgive.) Today we get to hear about beard that this is neither a Duty (Fard) nor an Obligation (Wajib).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Oblivious to Hereafter

Man is nearly in his grave (very old) but he is neither worrying about Fasting nor about Praying.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Focus on Modern Education

There is so much of emphasis on modern secular education that everybody is going forward on that path only. Just imagine about its end result. After retirement this all becomes null and void. Just think this way that if you get even a very long life then it will be perhaps hundred years. (This education will not serve you beyond that.)

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Objective of Interaction

The only objective of Interaction (Sulook) is that good etiquette be cultivated and bad etiquette be cleaned up.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

PS: Everybody would like to be forgiven on the Judgment day. Moreover everybody would like to pass with flying colours on that day. Obviously that will be possible only if you are able to present some thing very good on the day. Beloved Prophet(PBUH) said that the best thing one can present that day in his (or her favour) is a good etiquette. Some unfortunate people keep raising objection to Sulook.In reality they do not know what they are missing and what injustice they are doing to themselves.

Age for Modesty

A three years old child was shying from going to toilet. How is that possible? This is possible after grooming (by conscious parents).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

That Mommy, That Daddy

Whenever Hazrat Wala (Muhi-us-Sunnah Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab (RA)) used to come (to Anona House) Ammi jan (wife of Hazrat Muhi-us-Sunnah(RA)) will get busy in the kitchen after finishing her Ishraq Prayers.
People today remember those things a lot and very fondly.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Work and Spirituality

The worldly works will keep on taking place as such-what you should do is to make a routine to indulge in Remembrance of Allah(SWT) regularly.

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

Wellwisher Parents?

Earlier parents used to teach etiquette to their children. Today they are sending them on their way to doom (via modern Public School education).

(Sitting (Majlis) on Tuesday, September 6, 2011)

The Temporary Blessings

The wealth and children are all temporary blessings. Some time one hears the cries that I had only one son and that too has been taken back by Allah(SWT). The reality is that this son too was a temporary blessing.

Today we do not read those books that help in refining our etiquette. If we do read something then these are novels and stories. It is like making a hole in the same pot in which we are having our meal. (An Indian proverb)

A Point to Ponder

Ponder over it that which etiquette pleases Allah(SWT) and which displeases Him.

Sneaking Waywardness

Today waywardness is sneaking into our life. There are uncountable blessings of Allah(SWT) but we are turning into rebels.
