Fragrant Pieces of Advice

Talking ill of pious people

For a person to be evil, it is enough that he is not pious himself but he talks ill of the pious people. (Saying of Sayyiduna Maalik Bin Dinar رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه) (Shu’ab-ul-Iman, vol. 5, pp. 316, Raqm: 6780)

Sign of cold-heartedness

Sign of cold-heartedness is that there is no benefit if someone is taught something. Neither does the advice benefit nor do the blessings of being in the company of pious people become apparent. (Saying of Sayyiduna Abu Usman رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه(Husn-e-Tanbih, vol. 2, pp. 18)

Blessings of having devotion to the pious people

The one who has devotion to the pious people definitely attains their blessings. A dog had devotion to the pious people, i.e. Ashaab-ul-Kahf, and stayed with them, so Allah Almighty has mentioned him along with Ashaab-ul-Kahf in the Holy Quran. (Saying of Sayyiduna Abul Fadl Jawhari رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه) (Husn-e-Tanbih, vol. 3, pp. 31)

A’la Hadrat’s Pearls of Wisdom

Memorisation of the Holy Quran made easy

Memorising the book of Allah was a distinctive speciality of the prophets عَـلَـيْهِمُ الصَّلاۃ وَالثَّناء of the previous nations. For this Ummah, Allah Almighty has made it easy to memorise the Holy Quran, as you can see that even ten-year-old children memorise the Holy Quran. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 5, pp. 67)

Shar’i ruling on disowning children

As the blessed Shari’ah has established the system of divorce to end the relationship with a wife (given its authority to the husband and that the divorce is established if certain words are uttered by the husband), ignorant people think that disowning children is a similar Shar’i process to end a relationship with children (given its authority to the parents and that the children can be deprived of inheritance if certain words are uttered by the parents). These are merely made-up notions which have no base in Shari’ah. The parent-child relationship is one that does not end by someone cutting it off, except for when someone مَعَاذَا الـلّٰـه becomes an apostate (i.e. the parent-child relationship only ends in the case of one of them leaving Islam) وَالْعِیَاذُبِاﷲِ. (Fatawa-e-Razawiyyah, vol. 26, pp. 85)

Different stages of Haraam

There is a difference in different types of Haraam. Cannabis, hashish, and alcohol are all Haraam, but alcohol is the worst of them. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 22, pp. 606)

Madani Pearls of ‘Attar

Nature of children

O the devotees of Rasool! Children have a natural tendency to copy elders. If there is a practice of offering Salah at home, then children will also copy offering Salah, and if (مَعَاذَا الـلّٰـه ) singing and dancing is prevalent inside the house, then children will do the same. (Madani Muzakarah, 19th Safar-ul-Muzaffar 1441 AH)

Way of attaining steadfastness in pious deeds

To attain steadfastness in pious deeds, one initially has to force his Nafs towards pious deeds. (Madani Muzakarah, 29th Jumadal Ukhra 1436 AH)

Obeying national laws

National laws that do not contradict Shari’ah should be obeyed. (Madani Muzakarah, 25th Ramadan-ul-Kareem, 1436 AH)
