Words of wisdom

Virtuous deeds

A person who goes to the grave without provisions (i.e. good deeds) is like the one who starts traveling by sea without a ship. (Quoted from Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddique رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَـنْهُ)(Al-Munabbihat, pp. 3)

How [does one] get respect?  

In the world, one gets respect through wealth, whereas in the Hereafter one gets respect through virtuous deeds. (Quoted from Sayyiduna Umar Farooq رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَـنْهُ) (Al- Munabbihat, pp. 3)

Benefit of grief for Hereafter

The grief for the world is the reason for the darkness of the heart whereas the grief for the Hereafter creates Noor [luminosity] in the heart. (Quoted from Sayyiduna Usman Ghani رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَـنْهُ) (Al-Munabbihat, pp. 4)

Example of good and bad wife

If a virtuous woman is in the Nikah of a righteous man, her example is like a gold crown placed upon the head of the king, whereas if an evil woman is in the Nikah of a righteous person, her example is like a heavy burden which an old man is carrying. (Quoted from Sayyiduna Abdul Rahman Abzi رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَـنْهُ) (Hasan-ul-Tanbeeh, vol. 2, pp. 483)

Ahmad Raza`s words of wisdom

People are obliged to respect Islamic scholars (Ulama-e-Kiraam) more than father. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 25, pp. 216)

Which knowledge is mandatory for people to gain?

Muslim Ummah ought to gain knowledge about the rectification (i.e. performing these acts correctly) of Salah, fast, Wudu, Ghusl, and the recitation of the Holy Qur`an. On the Day of Judgment, they will be asked about these acts and if they fail to perform them correctly, they will be held accountable. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 29, pp. 591)

One breaks childhood habit with difficulty

The habit which someone has been in since his childhood is hard to break. Not preventing your Na-Baligh [one who has not yet reached puberty] children from such evil acts (i.e. bawdiness and to sing lustful songs) is like preparing them for the Hell fire and also causing yourself to commit a grave sin. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 22, pp. 215)
