Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi (ra)

Someone had written a letter stating: I teach in a madrasah and a particular buzurg is my shaikh. Could you please advise me?

Hadhrat replied: “Endeavour in fulfilling the rights of the students and the kitaabs. Consider the students to be your well-wishers in the sense that they have presented their hearts in front of you so that you could sow the seeds of your `ilm (knowledge) therein. In this way, your knowledge is being passed on and it is not confined to yourself.

Therefore, treat the students as your own children. Overlook the flaws of your students as your ustaads had overlooked your errors.

Always make mutaala`ah (preparation) for the lesson before going to class even though you may have taught that lesson many times over in the past. In every preparation Allah Ta`ala bestows one with a new faiz (blessing). I sincerely make du`aa that Allah Ta`ala blesses you in your knowledge and `amal (action).”

Hadhrat Moulana Ilyaas  (founder of the tableeghi jamaat) used to say: “The greatest form of jihaad in this era is to create the yearning for deen in the hearts of those who do not have any thirst
towards deen.”

Malfoozaat of Faqeeh-ul-Ummat

Husn-e-Zann (which is a desired quality as mentioned in the Hadeeth:[Entertain good thoughts about believers.]) requires no proof. Not having any proof for soo-e-zann (evil thoughts) (which is abhorred and prohibited by Allah Ta`ala in the Qur’aan:   (O you who believe! Abstain from suspicions.) [12:49])  and a person merely being a Muslim are sufficient for entertaining good thoughts for a person.

However, one requires proof to have evil thoughts for the next person. (It is sinful to entertain evil thoughts regarding someone without any reliable proof. Allah Ta`ala states:  ’ [Some thoughts are sinful.]

Malfoozaat of Faqeeh-ul-Ummat

A layman should close his eyes and engage himself in tasbeeh when seated in the presence of his shaikh. It should not be such that due to his ignorance he begins entertaining evil thoughts of his shaikh on account of a certain action of the shaikh and is thus deprived of the blessings of his shaikh.
