Words of wisdom

Nice pieces of advice

1. Act of blessing

Blessed physical appearance of the pious people should be mentioned before those who have not beheld them [i.e. the pious people] because as meeting the pious people is an act of blessing, visualising them is also a source of blessing. (Stated by Sayyiduna ‘Ali Bin Sultan Qari رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه)

(Jam’-ul-Wasail fi Sharh-ish-Shumaail, vol. 1, pp. 60)

2. Appreciation and good fortune

Whoever obeys Allah Almighty and His Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, he is appreciated in the world and he will have the privilege of good fortune in the Hereafter. (Stated by Sayyiduna Imam ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Umar Baydawi رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه)

(Tafseer Baydawi, part 22, Al-Ahzaab, Taht-al-Ayah: 71, vol. 4, pp. 388)

3. Ominousness of sins

Ominousness of sins deprives the servant of showing the blessed act of obedience and carrying out the acts of worship. (Stated by Sayyiduna Imam Ghazali رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه)

(Minhaj-ul-‘Aabideen, pp. 19)

4. Excellence of teaching the Glorious Quran to children

This Ummah will always [remain] at goodness till their offspring keep acquiring the education of the Glorious Quran. (Stated by Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Isa رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه)

1. Evil consequences of enticing people to commit sin

The sinful person leads himself to the torment and the one who entices others to commit sin not only drags himself to the torment but also wants to indulge others in the torment. All those (people) who follow him (i.e., commit sins) bear the burden of their sins and he [one who entices others] alone bears the burden [of the sins] equal to [the burden of sins of] those people who follow his suggestion. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 24, pp. 290)

2. Advantage of eating together

It is proven by experience that eating together develops love, affection and warmth. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 24, pp. 315)

Madani pearls of ‘Attar

There is also another cure for tiredness; making Ghusl with lukewarm water and reciting Tasbih-e-Fatimah (i.e., 33 times ‘سُبْحٰنَ اللە’, 33 times ‘اَلْحَمْدُ لِلە’ and 34 times ‘اَللّٰەُ اَکْبَر’) before sleeping. (Madani Muzakarah, 1 Jumadal Aula, 1436 Hijri)

2. Value your parents

Value your parents, there is no substitute for them. (Madani Muzakarah, 7 Jumadal Aula, 1436 Hijri)

3. Make your children understand gently

Parents should make their children understand with affection and wisdom. Frequently rebuking, beating and shouting at children may turn them into disobedient individuals. (Madani Muzakarah, 13 Rajab-ul-Murajjab 1436 Hijri)
