Hating the Ways of the Kuffaar

Ways-to-troubleshoot-appsHazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once made the following du’aa: O Allah! Grant us the taufeeq of showing kindness and compassion to the kuffaar, as they are also Your servants, and enable us to fulfil their rights (and treat them justly). However, create within our hearts the aversion and hatred for their kufr and wrongs. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.76)

Looking for Ways to Benefit the Ummah

Power-SearchHazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

We should now and again take out time to think about the areas and places in which we will be able to work and influence people towards Deen. Thereafter, we should look for ways whereby we may succeed in inviting them and drawing them close to Allah Ta’ala. After determining the plan of action, we should place our reliance upon Allah Ta’ala and commence the work. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.64)

Placing one’s Reliance on Allah Ta’ala

1Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

A person becoming despondent of Deeni progress on account of lack of resources is in actual fact a sign that his reliance on worldly means is more than his conviction upon the power of Allah Ta’ala and His promises. One should place his reliance entirely upon Allah Ta’ala and work with determination. Allah Ta’ala will create the means for the work to be accomplished. Otherwise, without the Divine help of Allah Ta’ala, what can man do of his own accord? Nevertheless, mustering up courage and determination and striving is vitally important in order to receive the Divine help of Allah Ta’ala.

Remaining within the limits of Shariah

limitsHazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

In Islam, we are commanded to neither hoard wealth nor mise with it. Rather, we should spend it in halaal avenues. While spending wealth, one should be mindful of not transgressing the limits of Shariah by spending the wealth in impermissible or incorrect avenues. One should ensure that he spends the wealth in the correct avenue, in accordance to the manner Allah Ta’ala has commanded, and remaining within the prescribed limits of Shariah. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.18)

The True Meaning of Istighnaa (Independance)

correction-error-375x250Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

Some pious and learned people have an incorrect notion regarding the meaning of ‘istighnaa’. They feel that istighnaa is for a person to completely cease meeting wealthy people and to totally avoid mixing and interacting with them. Whereas this is not the true meaning of istighnaa. The true meaning of istighnaa is for one to refrain from expressing one’s needs before the wealthy or associating with them with the desire of acquiring wealth and prominence. Hence, to meet the wealthy and interact with them for the sake of Deen and for other Deeni purposes is permissible and will certainly not go against the dictates of istighnaa. Rather, meeting people in general for the sake of Deen is also important and necessary to some degree. Nevertheless, there is one thing of which we should be cautious – meeting and interacting with the wealthy should not lead to the greed and desire for wealth and prominence being created within us.
