"Dil pak nahi toh pak ho sakta nahi Insaan...
Warna iblees ko bhi aatay thay wuzu kay faraiz bohat..."
In a relationship with Siwak.
I have heard Imam Abu Hanifa Did 55 Hajj during his lifetime.
Mawlana Mansur ‘Ali Khan wrote of his beloved teacher, Mawlana Muhammad Qasim Nanautwi (may Allah shower His mercy upon them):
‘‘Allah Most High had favoured the late Mawlana with piety, asceticism, gnosis, tasawwuf, generosity, bravery, good character, and sound intellect, to which there seemed no end.’’
Madh-hab-e-Mansur, quoted in Maqalat-e-Hakim al-Islam, p. 401-402 (Karachi: Idaratul Ma‘arif, Jumada ‘l-Ula 1427 / June 2006 ed.)
Abdullah ibn Mubarak (ra) was once fighting in a war for Islam. When it was time for Salat, he went to a river nearby, tied his horse and made wudu. By the time he finished Salat, the horse had wandered to a nearby field and ate the crops. Abdullah ibn Mubarak (ra) was very disheartened as the horse ate the crops without the permission of the fields Owner. He then insisted the owner to keep the horse. And he got another horse and said he cannot strive in the way of Allah on a horse that has consumed what did not belong to it.
The Alamgir Wisdom of Sultan Alamgir Aurangzeb
The incident belongs to the times of Sultan Alamgir . That during the times of Alamgir (rah), Ulema dwelt in such rank misery that there was none to look after them. being an Alim himself, Alamgir (rah) knew the greatness of ahl-e- ilm. He did not publish any sermon in newspapers calling people to care for the Ulema..
Instead he devised this strategy that when the time for salah approached, he said that today he desires that such a governor of a state who is the Nawab of Deccan should perform his wudhu. The governor of Deccan after sending seven salutations expressed his joy saying it was indeed such a great honour that the emperor ordered him to perform his wudhu.. he understood this as a token that he was about to receive a Jagir.. that the emperor seems very pleased..
Nawab sahab was quick to fill the jug of water and was about to make wudhu…
Alamgir (rah) asked him about the Faraiz of wudhu,.. now if only did Nawab sahab make wudhu even once in his entire life would he knew.. he was taken a back..! what shall he answer.. asked him how many wajibaat does it have ..? and he knew nothing about.. asked him how many Sunnah of wudhu..? there was no answer..
Alamgir (rah) said it is very sad that you govern a hundred thousand people .. rule over a hundred thousand necks.. and your name being Muslim… that you don’t even know the faraiz..wujoob and sunnah of Wudhu.. Iam hopeful that henceforth I shall not see such a face again..
And he treated another one such that in the month of Ramadhan he said: “Today you shall join me at iftar...” to which he replied: “your highness this is such a great honour…else how can this faqeer be so fortunate enough to be remembered by the emperor..”.
At the time of iftar he asked him : “Tell me.. Mufsidaat sawm.. due to which a sawm becomes fasid… How many are they..?”
Incidently, he never even once fasted.. never knew what the breachers of fast are in the first place .. and he kept quite.. what could he answer..!
Alamgir (rah) said that it was very shameful that you are known as a governor.. Ameer.. and Nawab.. that thousands of people follow your orders.. being a Muslim... a ruler.. and you don’t even know what are the actions that breach a fast..?!
Similarly, he asked someone on the masa’il of zakat.. and he dint receive an answer, to another he asked about Hajj and so on.. .. such that everyone failed to answer. Alamgir (rah) reprimanded each one that it should not be repeated again..
Now when these governors returned back, they felt the dire need to learn the masail and a search for Ulema began… the Ulema now began to raise their demands... Some pressed for Five hundred rupees as salary... And they were pampered saying ‘ Huzoor ..! we shall readily pay you a thousand..’. ofcourse they would not risk losing the Jagirs. Even then the Ulema were not available and a nation wide search was on. Even those students still pursuing studies of deen were hired on huge salaries.. and thus all these governors and ruling class became aware of the masail of deen and they turned towards practicing on deen..

Some moments before the death of Hazrath Masihullah Khan of Jalalabad, India
I'm sharing you one of the most emotional and beautiful moments before the death of Shaykh Masihullah Khan Sahab (of Jalalabad , India). I heard this in the yesterday's Friday sermon from Mufti Tajammul Hussain Sahab( of hyderabad, India).
Mufti Sahab said that he was present at the time of hazrath's death and people who were near to him explained that Moulana Masihullah Khan Sahab was looking upwards from 3 AM and smiling and they also said that we have smelled such a beautiful fragrance that we we have not smelled like this in our lifetime. When Hazrath passed away at around 4.30AM, news was spreading to miles and miles.As Ishraq time was coming, all(Muslims as well as non-muslims) were coming in a huge numbers by Wrapping the blankets( cold season was going there) around them to see hazrath. When asked about how you people came to know within some hours, they replied "Hazrath came in our dream and was telling,its the time for leaving from this world, forgive me if I have given you pain.
(As for an obedient man, it will be said to him,) .O content soul,
come back to your Lord, well-pleased, well-pleasing.
If I or any of my posts hurt you anytime, either here on this forum or anywhere outside this forum, then I ask sincere forgiveness from you.
The ulema have already taught us how deal with every aspects of life. he he.
