Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya rahmatullah alayhi once mentioned:
I have personally witnessed that in order for peace to prevail on the land, one effective method is turning to Allah Ta‟ala and reciting abundant durood upon Nabi Sallalahu alayhi wasalam. When a person turns to Allah Ta‟ala, reforms his ways and engages in zikr and durood shareef, Allah Ta‟ala removes his difficulties and misfortunes and causes good conditions to prevail. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya rahmatullah alayhi pg. 400)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) writes:

There are numerous places in the Qur’an and hadith where we are exhorted and encouraged to remain patient in the face of adversity. One should not consider the difficulties and hardships one undergoes as a sheer misfortune and calamity. Instead, at times, Allah Ta’ala out of His infinite grace and wisdom puts one through certain trials during his life in order to bless him with His divine grace. (Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat [urdu], Part 2 –pg.369)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) while addressing the audience in his majlis once mentioned:

“Beloved brothers! Let me inform you about the evil traits of pride, jealousy and haughtiness. These evil traits have no limits and are extremely serious in the sight of Allah Ta'ala. Pride, jealousy and haughtiness are among those sins whose punishment is extremely severe. These are connected to the spiritual being of a person. There are some sins which relate to the physical being of a person, e.g. one’s lust and carnal desires. The punishment for getting involved in such sins are indeed detrimental, however they are not as severe as getting involved in these spiritual maladies (i.e. the sin of pride, haughtiness and jealousy). (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/70)
