Studying the Books of the Sufis under the Guidance of the Mashaaikh

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

Our Deeni elders discourage people who are not bayt to pious, learned and experienced mashaaikh from studying the books of the sufis (as they will not be able to comprehend the knowledge in its correct perspective and this in turn will cause them to fall into confusion and misunderstanding in their Deen). As for those who are bayt to pious, learned and experienced mashaaikh, they may study the books of the sufis under the supervision and guidance of their shaikh. In this way, there will be no harm caused to their Deen. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.57)

The Unity of Islam

Unity-300x225Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

The purpose of this movement of tableegh is to unite all the Muslims on the Deen of Islam. Once the entire ummah is united upon the Deen of Islam, they will be able to sacrifice their desires in order to fulfil the commands of Allah Ta’ala. Through all the Muslims uniting on Islam and their motivation and drive in all facets of their lives being directed towards Deen, it will be easy for each person to fulfil the obligation of ‘Ikraam-e-Muslim’ (fulfilling the rights of each believer). When the Muslims achieve this, they will become an embodiment of the Hadith:

المسلمون كجسد واحد

The Muslim Ummah is like one body

The Need for Making Mashwarah

Best-Consulting-Firms-min-1-375x195Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

In this work of Da’wat and Tableegh (inviting people towards Deen), in order for one to see the desired level of progress, one is required to inculcate within himself sincerity in all his works and actions. Apart from the need to inculcate sincerity, there is a vital need for one to do the work with mashwarah (i.e. consulting the seniors of the work and not taking any independent decision). Without making mashwarah with the seniors, there is a fear that great harm could take place.  (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.114)

Showing Appreciation to All the Avenues of Deen

appreciation word artHazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

We should acknowledge and show appreciation to all the means and avenues through which Deen has come to us. Not acknowledging and showing appreciation is a means of ingratitude and a cause of great deprivation. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said in his mubaarak Hadith:

من لم يشكر الناس لم يشكر الله (رواه الطبراني)

The one who has not shown gratitude to people has not shown gratitude to Allah Ta’ala. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 97)

Attaining Success in this World and the Hereafter

28ae5ecHazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

In regard to the verse of Surah Mu’minoon in the 18th juz, Allah Ta’ala says:

قَد أَفلَحَ المُؤمِنونَ

“The believers are successful.”

In the following verses, Allah Ta’ala enumerates the qualities of the true believers and explains that those who adopt the qualities of Imaan and lead their lives in conformity to it, they are the ones who are truly successful. Hazrat Moulana then said that in these verses Allah Ta’ala has subjected success and prosperity to Imaan. However, there is no need to confine this success to the Hereafter alone. The promise of Allah Ta’ala also applies to the success of this world. If one inculcates the qualities of Imaan, then just as one will be successful in the Hereafter, one will also be successful in this world and Allah Ta’ala’s divine assistance will be with him.
