at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

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

Rizq of the Ulama

My father [Maulana Yahya Kandhalvi Rahimullah] said: “May Allah bless our mother Hadhrat Aisha (Radhiallahu Anha). She punished our Ulama but did the Ummat a great favor, when she made this dua: “O Allah, make the rizq (sustenance) of the Ulama to be earned in a distressed and wretched state.”

If we Molvis had all been in a good financial positions, we would not have talked to anyone without pride and arrogance. It is because of the collections of the Madressas where there is a need to practically beg of all and sundry, even evil-doers, immoral ones and clean-shaven ones, that we retain our humility.

[Maulana Zakariya Kandhalvi Rahmatullah alaihy in Aap Beti Part V, p. 547]
