Words of wisdom

Nice pieces of advice

1. Incredibly good looking from afar and near

The Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would look very handsome from afar, and he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would seem incredibly good-looking from near. (Stated by Sayyidatuna Umm-e-Ma’bad رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهَا)

(Ash-Shifa, vol. 1, pp. 61)

2. The walls would get brightened

I did not see more good-looking person than the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. It was as if his face would seem shining bright like the sun. When he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would smile, [his] shining teeth would brighten the walls. (Stated by Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُ)

(Ash-Shifa, vol. 1, pp. 61)

3. Fragrant path

When the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would pass by a place, the person coming afterwards would learn from the fragrance that the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم had passed by that place. (Stated by Sayyiduna Jabir رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُ)(Ash-Shifa, vol. 1, pp. 61)

4. Example of a good and bad wife

If a pious woman is the spouse of a pious man then the example of it is like that gold crown which is adorned on the head of a king whereas, if a bad woman is the spouse of any pious person then the example of it is like a heavy burden being carried by an elderly man. (Stated by Sayyiduna ‘Abdur Rahman Abzee رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه)

(Husn-ut-Tashabbuh, vol. 2, pp. 483)

1. Status of Islamic scholars

That Islamic scholar who has correct Sunni beliefs and calls people to the truth and speaks the truth is the deputy of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 23, pp. 649)

2. Different methods of reverence

Whatever way the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is respected and revered will remain good and appreciable. There will no need for distinct proof for the special methods (of reverence). (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 23, pp. 764)

3. Foundation of Iman

Iman of the people belonging to the ‘Ahl-us-Sunnah’ school of thought is based on the devotional love of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. One cannot be a Muslim unless he has devotion to the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم more than his mother, father, children [and] all the worlds. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 24, pp. 486)

Well-mannered children do not speak loudly before their parents but rather they show respect to them and kiss their hands and feet. (Madani Muzakarah, 6 Ramadan-ul-Mubarak, 1436 Hijri)
