To Stand Up

From Hadhrat Mufti Taqi Usmani Sahab’s (damat barkatuhum) ‘Islahi Khutbat’:

One method of showing honour to someone is to stand up for him. The instructions of shari’ah in this regard are that if the visitor expects other people to stand up for him then we must not stand up because his desire indicates that he is arrogant and thinks that he is arrogant and thinks little of other people. However, if the visitor does not expect anyone to stand up for him then there is no harm to stand up to honour such a man for his knowledge, piety or the high office he holds. It is neither a sin to stand up nor necessary to do so.

Du’a and its Nature

Hakeemul Ummat Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (rahimullah) writes,

“Some people complain, that making Du’a is important but when we make Du’a the heart does not attach to the Du’a. That’s why people don’t make Du’a, although the actual reason for this complain is that people don’t know the nature of Du’a. The nature of Du’a is that when it gets asked a lot then the heart starts attaching to it and this is the wisdom behind asking of each Du’a three three times referred to as Sunnah and more than that means even more profit.” [Ashraf al-‘Uloom: 7/448 ]

‘Haqeeqi Zikrullah’ (real remembrance of Allah) is that a person keeps close custody of Allah’s Ahkam (laws) and Awamir (commandments) regarding which opportunity, which situation and which occupation one is [engaged] in. And this Zikr (remembrance) I enjoin more to my friends.”

ساحل نہ رہا

-کشتی نہ رہی ساحل نہ رہا ساحل کی تمنا بھی نہ رہی
-اے پوچنے والے ظاہر ہے انجام ہمارا کیا ہوگا
-اے موج ہوازج ان کو بھی دو چار تھپیڑے ہلکے سے
-کچھ لوگ ابھی تک ساحل پر طوفان کا نظارہ کرتے ہیں

سا�ل نہ رہا“No boat nor coast is left – even the desire for a coast didn’t stay.
Oh enquirers, it’s obvious what our finis will be.
Oh waves of incidents, give them two or four light slaps, too.
A few people on the coast are still observing the tornado.”

Beneficial Istikhara

Hakeemul Ummat Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (quddus sirruhu) writes,

“(Before starting some new work some people tell to do Istikhara no matter what, but this is not right.) The thing is doing Istikhara (not by everyone, but) by that person is beneficial, who has an empty mind. Otherwise the heart gets attracted by the thoughts running through the head and the person understands that I got to know this through Istikhara. Although in the answer one can see his thoughts alone.” (Ashraf al-‘Ulum 7/435)
