Maulana Yusuf Rahimullah Said
The prophet S.A.W. Made an effort which changed every man's ways of Faith, worship, earning, eating, wedding, meeting, dealings all spheres of life etc.The Aim of tabligh to revive that effort on the pattern of Hazrat Muhammad sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam and Sahaba.
The effort is not merely running (from place to place). The real work is how to get these qualities in my own life.
To achieve this, the effort has to be of three types as shown by hadratji himself:
1. Dawaah (invitation)
2. Mashq (practise)
3. Dua (supplication)
IKHLAS E NIYAT (Sincerity of Intention)
Every action should be only for the pleasure of Allah. We should not do anything for material gain or improving our own status. Even a small action with intention to please Allah will attract great rewards and with the wrong intention even great actions will be a reason for punishment.
"When we do not fulfill the commandments of Allah and refrain from the forbidden in our personal lives over which we have full control and there is no obstacle or compulsion, then how is it possible that we be entrusted with the governing of this world.
It is only through the decision of Allah that the believers may be granted government on the earth so that they may seek His pleasure and establish His laws in this world.
All praises to Allah the Sustainer of the worlds, and grace, honour and salutations on the Chief of Apostles and Seal of Prophets, Our beloved Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, his family, companions and those who followed him in an excellent fashion and invited mankind towards Allah, till the Day of Resurrection.
