Dealing with Criticism and Enmity

“If a person straightens himself like an arrow [i.e. he corrects his actions and perfects his character], then too he will certainly have some enemy or the other.” (Imaam Shaafi' Rahmatullahi alaih)

Therefore, one should not be concerned about the comments and attitudes of others towards one. As long as one is following the Shariah of Allah and the Sunnah of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) the criticism of the critics and enmity of enemies should be ignored. Their comments should be assigned to the trash can.

Length of Female Tresses

Q. Up to how long must a woman grow her hair? I have heard, “only till her buttocks”.
A. What you have heard is not true. She should grow her tresses till where Allah Ta’ala decrees her tresses to grow. In excessively long tresses she resembles the damsels of Jannat.

11.5 Effect and Impression

Every wa’z of his was a display of:

اُدْعُ اِلٰى سَبِيْلِ رَبِّكَ بِاْلحِكْمَةِ وَالْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ وَجَادِلْهُمْ بِالَّتِيْ هِيَ اَحْسَنُ
“Call to the path of your Rabb with wisdom and beautiful admonition, and argue with them in a beautiful way.”
(Surah An-Nahl, 125)

In his wa’z there would be wonderful contents discussed with extreme sagacity in the light of strong proofs and convincing self-evident facts. For the above mentioned reasons, laymen and Ulama would become ecstatic and, in consequence, the wa’z would be at times adjourned.

At times Hazrat would continue lecturing for up to six and seven hours whilst high society, affluent and influential people would remain sitting, or standing. Even though the sun may be beating down upon them, but they would not be bothered. The audience would be so much absorbed that:

كَاَنَّ عَلٰى رُؤُسِهِمُ الطَّيْرَ
“As if birds were perched on their heads,”

– said in regard to the Sahaaba-e-Kiraam (Radhiyallahu anhu) in the Majlis of Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) – would be recalled.

Top philosophers would see their ‘philosophy’ fade away, and in contrast to the Divine Mysteries elucidated by Hazrat their academic knowledge would appear trivial to them. Stony-hearts would crack open, dead hearts would come to life, the despondent would cherish new hope, sombre and dejected faces would become cheerful and smiling, people of divergent ‘sufi-paths’ would consider him to be their own and opponents would instead of fighting, be constrained to reconcile.

If an idiot had to be antagonistic then not long thereafter he would grab hold of Hazrat’s feet in apology. For this reason, Hazrat’s rivals would stop people from attending his lectures, saying:
“Don’t go there. He casts a spell over the audience.”

In Kanpur, Hazrat spoke for two months uninterruptedly in each neighbourhood on Namaaz. As a result there would be no place in the Masaajid in view of the crowd of Musallis, and eagerness for Namaaz assumed such proportions that cart drivers [who were notorious for their negligence in offering Salaat] would ask their passengers about the times of Namaaz.

Naseehat PDF Print E-mail
Fiqh and Masaail - Miscellaneous


“Whoever gave naseehat [advice] to his brother [Muslim] quietly has given him naseehat. Whoever has given naseehat in front of everyone has put his brother [Muslim] to shame.” (Imaam Shaafi' Rahmatullahi Alaih)

[Yes, if the wrongdoer openly transgresses, or rejects the naseehat with contempt, then it will be salubrious to proclaim the naseehat publicly. Perhaps he takes heed out of shame.

Similarly, if there is wanton and wide spread commission of sin then this should be addressed openly and the naseehat offered should be disseminated widely.]

Moulana Maseehullah’s View on the Masturaat Jamaats PDF Print E-mail

What Does Moulana Maseehullah Say about Masturaat Jamaats?

Q. What does Moulana Maseehullah say about masturaat jamaats?

A. We are not aware of Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah’s (Rahmatullahi alaih) comments on the ladies Tablighi Jamaat, if any. We are aware, however, of his comments in regard to women vying with men in the public domain. Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Saheb (Rahmatullahi alaih) said that when a woman steps out of the sacred confines of her home then do not expect her to be contented at home.

We are also aware of what Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said with regard to a woman who emerges from her home. Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said that when a woman emerges from her home Shaitaan casts surreptitious glances at her. He waits in ambush to use and abuse her by inflicting fitnah. Thus, in the light of the Hadeeth of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) women who leave their homes are mustashrafaat – upon whom sneaky and sly gazes of the Shayaateen fall. They do not remain masturaat (concealed) when emerging from their homes. Shaytaan uses them to seduce and destroy males. The aftermath of this fitnah is misery piled upon misery. Home is the woman’s bastion of Haya and Taqwa. She has not been created for globe-trotting on Tableegh missions.

11.4 Format of Lectures

Hazrat Thanwi would always commence a wa’z by reciting the Khutba-e-Maathoorah [the Sunnat Khutbah] and then an Aayat or Hadeeth. Thereafter he would mention related and important issues which were studded with articulate, impressive, essential and sophisticated words. In conclusion he would repeat the translation of the Aayat or Hadeeth and express a du’aa. [This du’aa was not the customary lengthy, loud, ostentatious, hand-risen ‘du’aa’ in vogue nowadays.]

Every lecture was a collection of facts pertaining to realities and divine perception, and bore the hue of Tasawwuf. Although he would not think of a topic or prepare beforehand, rather he would commence the wa’z informally with whatever that came into his heart, it would not be haphazard, however. In fact he would speak with such sequence and fluency as though he was reading from a book.

Neither would he delve into unnecessary topics and poems, nor flowery speech to kill time for the sake of the listeners. In fact, time would run out with the contents yet incomplete. In this regard, Hakeem Muhammad Mustafa Saheb who would record Hazrat’s lectures, said:
“Ahqar heard a Hadeeth being spoken about on fifty occasions at least. Yet the content matter was not at all repeated.”

In the course of the lecture he would also, as encouragement or warning, mention anecdotes and parables in the pattern of Hazrat Jalaalud Deen Roomi (Rahmatullahi alaih). Even from common jokes and folk tales he would, in a cultured and sophisticated way, deduce such conclusions and lessons that would at times reduce the audience to tears and at times bring it to laughter. Adorning Hazrat’s lectures in Fiqhi-order, Hakeem Muhammad Mustafa Saheb has published the stories separately in two volumes with the title Amthaal-e-Ibrat [Parables of Admonition]. It contains over five hundred stories.

Similarly, in the course of his talk he would recite such opportune Arabic, Persian and Urdu poems that added life to the contents. The listeners would be moved. They would become ecstatic and emotional. They would say: “When Hazrat recites poems he captivates the heart.”

It would appear then as if the poem was said for that occasion. However, he did not adopt musical tones in his poems. If he recalled a poem on an appropriate occasion he would recite it naturally in his own distinct way. Although Hazrat never made it a point to memorize poems, then too, Hakeem Muhammad Mustafa Saheb counted close to one thousand three hundred poems from Hazrat’s lectures. They have been published with the name Abyaat-e-Hikmat [Odes of Wisdom].
