Fragrance should emanate from speech

1. Effects of righteous and evil deeds

Saying of Sayyiduna Hasan Bin Saalih Bin Hayy [حَیّ] رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه: Righteous deed is the means of physical energy, noor in the heart and light in the eyes; whereas an evil action is the means of physical weakness, darkness of heart and deprivation from the ability to see. (Hilya-tul-Awliya, vol. 7, pp. 385, Raqm 10941)

2. Write down a good thing

Saying of Sayyiduna Yahya Bin Khalid رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه: Whatever good thing you hear, write it down. When you write it down, then memorise it; and when memorised, mention it to others. (Wafyaat-ul-A’yaan, vol. 5, pp. 184, Raqm 806)

3. This world is not loyal

Saying of Sayyiduna Yahya Bin Khalid رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه: This world is not loyal and wealth is temporary. People who came before us are an example for us, and we will be an admonition for those who come after us. (Ibid)

4. Who is the true Sawm-observing person?

Saying of Sayyiduna Abu Muslim Kholani رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه: Sleep of the Sawm-observing person is Tasbih, and Sawm-observing person is only he who remains quiet and does not converse uselessly. (Husn-us-Samt fis-Samt, pp. 85)

5. Sadaqah from Halal wealth

Saying of Sayyiduna Abu Yahya Maalik Bin Dinar رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه: Giving Sadaqah of one date from Halal wealth is dearer to me than giving one hundred thousand dates in Sadaqah from Haraam wealth. (Hilya-tul-Awliya, vol. 2, pp. 420, Raqm 2813)

6. Silence is grace

Saying of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Bin Mubarak رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه: Observing silence at the place where one is not meant to speak is excellent grace for a man. (Husn-us-Samt fis-Samt, pp. 108)

7. It is better to speak the truth than to swear an oath

Saying of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Bin Mubarak رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه: To me, speaking truth is better than swearing an oath. (Hilya-tul-Awliya, vol. 8, pp. 180, Raqm 11810)

8. Example of spending Haraam wealth in a noble cause

Saying of Sayyiduna Sufyan Bin Sa’eed Sawri رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه: One who spends Haraam wealth in a noble cause is like the one who purifies his clothes with urine. Cloth only gets purified with water and only Halal removes sins. (Kitab-ul-Kaba`ir, pp. 135)

Ahmad Raza’s garden is even blossoming today

1. One right of Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم upon the Ummah

The Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has the right upon the entire Ummah that whenever they see any such thing that is associated to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم or witness any such thing that is evident towards those things that are associated to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, then at that time, one should think of the Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم with the depths of devotions and extreme reverence, and recite Salat-‘Alan-Nabi and Salam in abundance. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 21, pp. 422)

2. Opposing the habits of Muslims

Refrain from opposing the habits of Muslims as much as possible. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 16, pp. 299)

3. Desire for self-praise is an evil attribute

Admiring being self-praised most often is an evil attribute and has dangerous consequences. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 21, pp. 596)

4. How is it to sell offspring?

Some needy people, who do not fear Allah Almighty, sell their offspring when they face famine etc. According to Shari’ah, this sale is not permissible in any way; in fact it is absurd, baseless and meaningless. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 11, pp. 541)

5. Couplet is not an evidence over Shari’ah

The blessed Shari’ah is an evidence over couplet and non-couplet; a couplet cannot become an evidence over Shari’ah. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 21, pp. 118)

6. Impermissible cannot become permissible

If a heretic or disbeliever denies something impermissible, then it cannot be considered to be permissible. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 21, pp. 154)

7. Various blessed companions having the same name

More than twenty companions رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم had the name Hakam (حَکَم), around ten had the name Hakeem (حَکیم), more than sixty had the name Khalid (خالِد), and more than one hundred and ten had the name Maalik (مالِک). (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 21, pp. 359)

Attar’s garden, what a beautiful garden

1. A Muslim is bound by Shari’ah

A Muslim is bound to follow Shari’ah in every matter. (Madani Muzakarah, 6 Shawwal-ul-Mukarram 1435 AH)

2. After being uttered from the tongue, words become others’

Words remain ours until we do not utter them; once they have been uttered, they become others’. Others may do whatever they want to do with them. (Madani Muzakarah, 3 Zul-Hijja-til-Haraam 1435 AH)

4. Develop a habit of refraining from asking for things

Everyone should try to refrain from asking others for things. If one becomes firm in this habit (of not asking others for things), then اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ he will also obtain various worldly benefits. (Madani Muzakarah, 20 Rabi’-ul-Awwal 1437 AH)

5. Harm of eating to one’s fill

It is not a sin to eat to one’s fill. However, Nafs of the one who eats more can get more inclined towards sins. (Madani Muzakarah, 16 Ramadan-ul-Mubarak 1437 AH)

6. Protection from pimples

If  a mango is eaten after cooling it down, i.e. after keeping it soaked in water for a little while, and if raw Lassi is drunk after that, then اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ it will protect against pimples and boils etc. (Madani Muzakarah, 17 Ramadan-ul-Mubarak 1437 AH)
