‘Allamah Yusuf Binori and the Zakat Funds

The Taqwa and Humanity of Hadhrat ‘Allamah Muhammad Yusuf Sahab Binori (rahmatullah alayh) were in such a condition, that he would leave all the Zakat funds aside only for the students. He would never – under no circumstances – spend it on the salary of the teachers, the constructions of the Madrassa or the buying of books. In the next years the Zakat funds became sufficient.

Once there were 25,000 rupees collected in the Zakat funds, but the non-Zakat income was empty. When the time came to pay the teachers the treasurer Hajji Yaqub Marhoom suggested: “There’s nothing for the payment of the teachers. If you allow, we take a loan from the Zakat funds and pay the teachers’ salary. Later on we’ll return the amount to the Zakat funds.”

Shaykh Binori (Rahimullah Ta’ala) replied: “No way! I don’t want to become fire-wood of Jahannam for the ease of these teachers. The teachers should wait patiently for Allah to send some to their funds. The teachers who can not be patient have the choice to leave this Madrassa and move on.”

Good Marital Relationship

Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani (damat barkatuhum) writes:

Mutual respect, love, understanding, courtesy and a mutual consideration of each other’s needs plus mutual tolerance are not only a must for marital and familial bliss but also very meritorious. The exalted and eternally blessed Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has said that, “The most perfect faith have those Muslims who have better morals, and the best of these are those who are best for their women.” (Tirmidhi)

This Is Not Deen!

Our Hadhrat Maulana Maseehullah Khan Sahib (Rahmatullah alayh) used to say that it is not Deen (Faith) to satisfy ones own desires; Deen is to obey Allah and Allah’s Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). It is not at all Deen to hanker after a certain personal choice, e.g. the wish to study religious courses and become a theologian, whether one is qualified or not for that line of study. Some member of the family, father, mother or any other person is seriously ill and there is none to look after him and the son is intent upon going to school. This is not Deen. In such a situation Deen is to devote one’s services exclusively to nurse the sick in the family.

Hadith Ummi Zar’a

This is the second hadith of this chapter [on the story-telling of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam at night]. Due to this story being lengthy and famous, special books have been written on it. Imaam Tirmizi has also given it a little prominence. This hadith has other names too, but is well known by this name. Due to the story being lengthy, every woman’s story is mentioned separately with its commentaries.

Aisha radiyallahu anha reports, “Once eleven women assembled and made an agreement, that each of them would describe the true state of their husbands, without hiding any fact.”

Huqooq of the Shaikh

1. The mureed should believe that he will attain his goal through the agency of his Shaikh. If the mureed turns his attention elsewhere (i.e. towards another Shaikh while he remains the mureed of one Shaikh) he will be deprived of the spiritual grace and benefit of his Shaikh.

Visiting His Parents’ Grave

It’s well known that Jannah lies under the feet of the mother and that the father’s Du’a for his children goes directly to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. But even after they have passed away one’s parents can become a source of great merit and virtues. It has been related in a Hadith that,

“Whoever will visit his parents grave every Friday will be granted Maghfirat and he will be recorded as an obedient son of his parents.”
