Declaring the Truth [اظہار حق]


Hadhrat Maulana Shah Abrarul Haq Hardoi Sahib نوراللہ مرقدہ said,

“Decrlaring the Truth was compulsory upon Ambiya علیہم السلام in every situation, even if their lives might go. Yet for ‘Ulema exists room for silence, if there’s danger of getting killed – but declaring the truth is superior.”

To Feel Superior

Hadhrat Maulana Shah Abrarul Haq Hardoi Sahib نوراللہ مرقدہ said,

“When a doctor gives a Prince an injection, he doesn’t consider himself superior to the Prince. In the same way the one speaking about Deen should not consider himself superior to the listeners. Regarding the expert of a field as perfect [Akmal] is permissible, but to regard as superior is Haram. Because the criteria of virtue/superiority is based on acceptance by Allah Ta’ala [Qubuliyat inda’Allah], which can not be found out about in the Dunya.

The dignity of every believer should be in the heart. It’s not permissible for any ‘Alim or Shaykh-e-Kamil even to consider a sinful Muslim despising. If a small child urinates on the father, the clothes of the father would be considered impure but there won’t be any decrease in the dignity of the father. Hadhrat Thanvi نوراللہ مرقدہ used to say, ‘Whenever I take care of someone[‘s affairs], I consider him superior to myself.’

Similarly, I consider my mother & sisters and you people superior to myself too, but am [at the same time] telling the commands of Allah Ta’ala.”

حاجت روا


سمجھتا ہے خدا کو صرف جو حاجت روا اپنا ۔
وہ غیر اللہ کے در کا کبھی سائل نہیں ہوتا ۔

“Who understands Allah alone as one’s Hajat Rawa*,
will never be a suppliant at the doors of Ghairullah.”

* Hajat Rawa = The One who fulfills needs.

Children should memorize the Qur’an

  1. Memorizing the Holy Qur’an creates strength in the child’s intellectual skills.
  2. The child and it’s parents, moreover the whole lineage is graced by honour and diginity.
  3. Eternal salvation from poorness and hunger gained through the removing the shortness of sustenance. (content of a Hadith)
  4. Parents will be given a crown on the Day of Judgement, whichs light will be more than that of the sun.
  5. Through the blessings of memorizing the Qur’an one is protected from going astray and wrong beliefs.
  6. The whole life will become ‘Ibaadah when one recites  in every situation some or other verses, because one has memorized the Holy Qur’an.
  7. Through the blessings of the Holy Qur’an one is to a large extent protected from a life of game and play [Lahw wa La’ab].
  8. By the intercession of a Hafiz 10 persons from his family are granted salvation. (provided that they are Muslims)
  9. Allah Ta’ala appoints angels for the protection of a Hafiz-e-Qur’an.
  10. A Hafiz will be granted the highest place of Jannah which he likes for himself.

Let your children by all means memorize the Holy Qur’an. A Hafiz child easily progresses in worldly education and the exams of the fifth grade become easy, too.

Surrender Yourself Totally


Hadhrat Maulana Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani دامت برکاتہم said,

“This idea has crept into and firmly settled on, our hearts that what the western nations are doing is worth emulation and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عايه وسالم is – God forbid – an ordinary issue, unworthy of being followed. It is rather a hurdle and hindrance in the path of progress. Consider! What harm will fall on us if we take our food with the right hand?

Every Sunnah is Sublime

Hadhrat Maulana Muhammad Taqi Usmani دامت برکاتہم once explained,

“The Noble Companions (may Allah be pleased with them all) did not believe that there were insignificant and significant types of the Sunnah. Every Sunnah was significant and sublime in their eyes. They, therefore, took care to act upon each and every Sunnah.

In fact a little care exercised in religious matters makes a great addition to the stock of good deeds at the credit of a man. It is therefore, the bounden duty of every Muslim to act upon the Sunnah without differentiating between significant and insignificant Sunnah.”

A Habit of Hadhrat Mufti-e-‘Azam


While giving a lecture on Istikhara [consulting with Allah Ta’ala] Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani دامت برکاتہم told,

“I’ve seen my respected father Mufti-e-‘Azam Pakistan Hadhrat Maulana Mufti Muhammad Shafi’ Sahab نوراللہ مرقدہ doing this [following] ‘Amal his whole life long. That whenever any issue arised in which a decision had to be made immediately and from two ways one had to be chosen, then at that time he used to close his eyes for a few moments.
