Beauty of heart is from the Holy Quran
The way homes become beautiful because of their dwellers and nice arrangements and decoration, in the same way, the beauty of the heart is with the Holy Quran.

It is Haraam to ask for financial help to carry out the customs of marriage

Support Imams and Muazzins financially
The Imams and Muazzins of Masajid do not ask for money or anything, though their salaries are usually low, therefore everyone should support them financially according to their financial ability. It will اِنْ شَـآءَ اللہ please them. (Instead of giving them prayer mats, sweets, perfumes packed in beautiful bottles, etc., give them money so that they can buy medicines, rations, clothes, etc., as per their need.) (Madani Muzakarah, 6 Rabi’-ul-Awwal, 1439 AH)
The future [i.e. the grave and the Hereafter) of the one who gains Islamic knowledge is bright and illuminated. (Madani Muzakarah, 10 Muharram-ul-Haraam, 1436 AH)
Show-off in humility
While speaking the words of humility we might commit show-off, therefore we should not call ourselves Haqeer, Faqeer (insignificant, unimportant), etc., unless we really have such feelings.
(Madani Muzakarah, 24 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir, 1439 AH)
