Masjidaun mein bhi kahin aise imam hote hain

Principal Sayings:
People aspire to see Prophet (peace be upon him) in dream; the complete compliance and following of Him is like to see Him in the state of awakening.
A person who takes a good care of his family and provides them good and divine education and manages for their provision, then this endeavor of him is better than jihad.
It is strange to consider misery an evil but not to extravagance.
A spiritual guide is a doorway to concealed knowledge. Allegiance is a pledge for obedience of Allah.
Some people have good opinion about those people who leave salat and drink liquor. They say about them that their appearance is evil but their insight is good. This is the deception of Devil.
Imagining murshid during zikr is just like accompanying him.
The principal worship is repentance and without which brilliance doesn’t come into deeds.
Kalima Tayyaba, Durood-e-Shareef, recitation of Quran and other reciting are like perfume. And repentance and Istaghfar akin to soap. Perfume gives good taste when apply after using soap.
Belief, good deeds, realizing the bounties of Allah and the abudance Zikr; these four things lead to a good ending.
Become the interpreter of this saying “Hands should busy in work and the heart in the remembrance of Allah” and value your precious time.
One grain earn through rightful means is better than a lot earned through unlawful means. A seeker (salik) should avoid strictly even doubtful things.
