True Conviction in the Words of Allah and His Rasul (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

One of the major and fundamental differences between us and the Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu Anhum) is that the hearts of the Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu Anhum) were filled with such complete reliance and conviction in the blessed words of Allah Ta’ala and His Rasul (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that they never had the slightest doubt or reservation. As far as we are concerned, our conviction is confined to our tongues and is not truly found in our hearts. However, I have found my seniors to be such that they possessed complete conviction in the words of Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Hence, if Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) warned the ummah regarding anything or prohibited us from anything, then the fear these Awliyaa possessed in their hearts for these prohibited actions was so natural they would refrain from it just as we fear a snake or scorpion and save ourselves from it. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 271)
