at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

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

Real Purpose of Speeches


Hakeemul Ummat Hadhrat Maualana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahimullah) says,

“The actual purpose of speeches is, that the human sees what diseases do I have. Out of all the diseases that have been mentionend in the speech, how many can be found inside me and of those that can be found, what is their cure?

Except this intention all the other thoughts are inessential and when it [this intention] is there then even if any speech gives no enjoyment at all one should not care.”

(Takmeel al-Islam: Jild 4, p. 534)
