Hazrat Maulana Abdul Hamid Is`haq Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhum)

We are not here for the sake of Dunya. We are here for the sake of Aakhirah. We have to prepare here, to live it up there.


A mureed should not ride on the crest of his Shaykh’s name and honour – that is, he should not take advantage of others or have expectations of others, by virtue of his connection with his Shaykh.


If a person sees his wife as a gift from Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu), his marriage will be one of greater enjoyment.
If the wife sees her husband as a gift from Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu), she too will experience greater joy.


‘Today, people want to give Islam a facelift; to make Islam fit into modern society. Islam does not need a facelift – Islam is ever-beautiful, ever-youthful. It is not a way of life that becomes old or out-dated.
Rather, it is modern society that needs to change and conform.’
