Reward of Saving One’s Gaze

Once Hazrat Murshid e Alam رحمتہ اللہ علیہ was travelling with Hazrat Siddiqi رحمتہ اللہ علیہ in the mountains by foot. While walking Hazrat had a look around and said to Hazrat Murshid e Alam رحمتہ اللہ علیہ , “Haafiz Saahab, is there a pious man with nizbat (illuminated heart) in this area?” Hazrat replied, “I know each man in this area there is no one with nizbat here“. Hazrat Siddiqi رحمتہ اللہ علیہ replied,“Ok” and kept quiet then after a while asked the same question again to which the reply was the same as earlier. Hazrat kept quite again and then said, “If there is no pious man with nizbat here then why is such noor (light of the illuminated heart) spread here?“. When they reached the destination they got to know that Hazrat Siddiqi رحمتہ اللہ علیہ spiritual brother was visiting the area and when he got to know Hazrat Siddiqi رحمتہ اللہ علیہ was about to visit then he decided to wait and meet Hazrat Siddiqi رحمتہ اللہ علیہ before travelling further. It was due to him the whole area was illuminated. Allah had granted such eyes to Hazrat رحمتہ اللہ علیہ.

Pride

“If one does not remove pride from within through hardwork then Allah breaks this pride and when Allah breaks it then one becomes a mockery in front of the world. When one works hard and removes pride through Tazkiyah then Allah blesses him with his closeness and makes him loved and respected amongst people”
Hazrat Maulana Sayyid Muhammad Talha Qasmi Naqshbandi (d.b)
