at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

General Advice

When someone once asked Hadhrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi (r.a.) to kindly favour him some advice, Faqiul Ummah Hadhrat Gangohi Sahab (r.a.) replied:

Respected brother

As Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh

Hereunder is some advice as requested:

  • Regard yourself as the lowest of all people (in status) and worse than every Muslim (In spiritual gratitude).
  • Constantly express gratitude to Allah Taa’la for his bounties and favours.
  • Maintain your focus towards acquiring the pleasure of Allah Taa’la in everything you do.
  • Refrain from the disobedience of Allah Taa’la.
  • Keep the love of Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam dominant over the love of all the creation.
  • Refrain from hurting the feeling of anyone.

(Tarbiyatut Taalibeen-pg.181)

May Allah Ta’ala grant you and me the ability to practice upon his advice.
