Fragrant pieces of advice
Half wisdom, half knowledge, and half life
Treating people well is half of the wisdom, asking a good question is half of the knowledge and adopting a good strategy is half of the life.
(Saying of Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq-e-A’zam رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَـنْهُ) (Munabihhat, pp. 9)
Importance of acting upon knowledge
If I act upon my knowledge, I am the greatest scholar and if I do not act upon [my knowledge], no one in the entire world is more ignorant than me.
(Saying of Sayyiduna Sufiyan Bin Uyainah رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه) (Al-Jami’ Li-Akhlaq-ir-Rawi, pp. 57)
Good news for him
Good news is for the person who has left the world before the world leaves him.

Listening to somebody attentively
Whenever a young person narrates a Hadees, I listen to it attentively as if I have not heard it before. However, I had heard the blessed Hadees even before he was born.

Beautiful way of conveying Sawab
Whenever you convey Sawab to someone, convey, first of all, Sawab to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, then convey Sawab to the one you want to by the Waseelah [through the medium] of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. (Madani Muzakarah, 1st Muharram-ul-Haraam 1441 AH)
Most intelligent class of the society
O the devotees of Rasool! The most respectable and intelligent class of the society is the class of Islamic scholars. Do not criticise Islamic scholars, but rather revere and respect them. (Madani Muzakarah, 2nd Muharram-ul-Haraam 1441 AH)
