Letter of Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat

Sincerity and being hospitable to guests

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَیْکُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ وَبَرَکَاتُه

May Allah Almighty bless you with the goodness of both worlds and forgive you without accountability, and may it be the same for me. اٰمین

Seven 7 Madani pearls

۔1   ‘Where, what and how much should be said’, whoever learns this is saved from many tribulations.

   ۔2He who is engaged in correcting his own faults would not even notice the faults of others.

   ۔3The favour done to someone (such as financial assistance, food and accommodation or providing conveyance) should not be mentioned in front of others as the person who has had the favour done upon him may be severely upset if he finds out.

   ۔4The favour should be for the sake of Allah Almighty. If you show hospitality to someone and he does not reciprocate the hospitality, and then you complain about it in front of others, then that hospitality or assistance etc. is not for the sake of Allah Almighty, but rather, it was so that he would do the same with you so there could be a like for like.

   ۔5Sincerity is that one does not even expect a thank you from he whom one has done good to.

   ۔6It is also a requirement of sincerity that the one carrying out the good deed should not expect encouragement from anyone; rather, in case someone praises him, he should dislike it in his heart.

   ۔7The Holy Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم stated: ‘عُجْب (i.e. self-conceit) destroys 70 years of deeds.’ (Jami’ Sagheer, p. 127, Hadees: 2074)

Definition of self-conceit

 ‘Considering one's excellent qualities (such as knowledge, action, wealth, intelligence, beautiful voice, position etc.) as one's own accomplishments and not being afraid of losing them’. It is as if the one who has self-conceit attains the blessing and forgets to attribute it to the bestower, Allah Almighty. (Some Attacks Of Satan p. 17)

Give my Salam to your sons and all Islamic brothers!

Continue making Du’a to Allah Almighty for forgiveness without accountability for this sinner.
