An Explanation of Some Selected Malfoozaat of Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (RA) 6


1)  The Gist of Tassawuf

 It is to annihilate oneself ie to regard oneself as totally worthless and inferior to all.

 Annihilation of the Nafs (base-desires) helps cure spiritual maladies like pride, jealousy, enmity, greed and malice etc.

When one thinks nothing of oneself and is humbled, the heart becomes attached to ALLAH Rabbul Izzat.

2)  Never Laugh at or Mock others 

Whoever does so … He himself becomes involved in the same problem as the person being ridiculed and will be laughed at.

3) Failure to Regret a Sin (An Azaab Punishment) 

When the Wrath of ALLAH Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala is upon a person, he fails to regret his sins. As such, he does not engage in Taubah. The heart then becomes hard due to being deprived of making Taubah and the person becomes distanced from the Mercy of ALLAH Ta’aala.

4) Death with Imaan 

The key to Jannah is Imaan. Thus, a person must die with Imaan… Even if it the lowest degree of Imaan, it is still a great treasure. Death with Imaan is entirely in the Hands of ALLAH Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala.

5) Reason for Weakness in Good Deeds

 Love for this world and no conviction of the Aakhirat causes a deficiency in the performance of good deeds.

6)  The Effect of Dua

We should make dua for the success of our aspirations and for relief from our difficulties. It is important to be attentive when making dua.

Whether the dua is fulfilled or not,  Dua brings sukoon (peace and satisfaction) into the heart.

7) Lack of Love and Appreciation from Friends and Family 

One should take comfort and be relieved that ALLAH Ta’aala has freed one’s heart from “Ghairullah”. One now realizes that only Allah is the Beloved. One gets the oppurtunity to focus his gaze only unto Allah.

8)  Ibaadat at Night

Leaving the comfort of one’s bed and turning to ALLAH late at night is extremely Pleasing to ALLAH Azza wa Jal.

9) Death on a Friday 

This is extremely virtuous. Due to the Auspiciousness of Jumuah, the deceased is not questioned by the Angels and is protected against Azaab of Qabr.
