Selected Advices of Shaykh Abdul Hamid Ishaq P2


The Muhabbat of Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is an Ibaadat, which is ranked as one of the greatest and most fundamental.


Write your life for Allah Ta’ala – like how the Sahaba-e-Kiraam (RA) wrote their lives.


…They wrote their lives with their blood, with love, obedience, sacrifice, sincere commitment to Islam and adherence to the Sunnah.


Their life story was a love story which ascended the confines of this temporary world – because their love relationship had its connection in the heavens, with the Creator of the Universe.


They wrote their lives for Allah Ta’ala and Allah Ta’ala  ‘wrote’ their honour in  His Kalaam, the Qur`aan Shareef, for all times;

 and presented their lives for all of mankind to take lesson from and draw inspiration from, until Qiyaamah.


To the extent that our Salaah will be correct, our Dien will be correct.

To the extent that our Dien will be correct, our Dunya and Aakhirat will also be correct.


Fortunate is the one who appreciates the bounties of Allah Ta’ala and expresses his appreciation – both verbally and in deed, i.e. he uses Allah Ta’ala’s bounties in His obedience.

Whoever is sincerely grateful, Allah Ta’ala promises an increase of His bounties.


Choosing the temporary enjoyments of sins, can result in losing the eternal enjoyments of Jannah!

Whilst there is life and opportunity, we should give up sins and secure the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala and the everlasting pleasures of Jannah.



The lovers of Allah Ta’ala have love for each other irrespective of where they reside in the world. 

Our Sheikh, Hadhrat Moulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh) would say that the Lovers of Allah Ta’ala are one family.


When making the Tarbiyyah of your child, do not forget that you too were a child once. 

You too made mistakes.


When we switch on the light of Tashakkur (gratitude), the darkness of Takabbur (pride) will disappear.


Every righteous effort of Dien is a tower on its own – be it the Darul Ulooms, Makaatib, Khanqahs, Tabligh, etc.

No effort of Dien  should be criticized or lowered to prove the greatness of another. All efforts are important and beneficial, and each effort complements the other.


When a person spends his money in the path of Allah Ta’ala, he transfers his money from the account of Dunya to the account of Aakhirah.


Allah Ta’ala is “Ghafoorul-Wadood”(Most Forgiving and Most Loving). 

Due to Allah Ta’ala’s love for His creation, He forgives. 

Allah Ta’ala loves to forgive and He forgives in great abundance.


When we correct our matters with Allah Ta’ala, Allah Ta’ala corrects 

our matters with people.


Keeping the Company of the Sheikh must be accompanied with the 

intentions of Islaah and gaining the Love of Allah Ta’ala. These intentions will

then yield great results, Insha-Allah.


We think too much of what other people think. We should focus on

just pleasing One Allah.


The Mashaa’ik  do not destroy the capital of Love in the heart. 

They re-channel it: from Haraam to Halaal; from ghairullah to Allah Ta’ala;  

from those who are dying to THE ONE WHO NEVER DIES. 
Allah Ta’ala is Al-Hayy (The Ever-Living).


Sabr (patience) is bitter but its fruit is extremely sweet.


What is Haraam to touch; is Haraam to look at.

What is Haraam to speak; is Haraam to listen to.


When searching for a spouse look for a soft natured and gentle person, for he/she will change the world for you!

And you be the same for your spouse!


On sincere repentance and Rujoo ilallaah, a person who was “Naari” 

(destined for the fire of Jahannam) becomes “Noori” (full of Noor).



The love of Dunya does not allow preparation for the Aakhirah (Hereafter). 

Greed for Dunya diverts from the obedience of Allah Ta’ala.

Yet, at the time of death, nothing of Dunya is taken.  


When we ask of Allah Ta’ala, our respect increases.

When we ask of people, our respect is lost.


Implementing the Command of “Ittaqullah”, in our lives, bears the fruit of every good 

and is a prescription and a medication for all spiritual ailments. 


We should not be deceived by our outward dress and/or titles which 

signify and allude to Taqwa (piety).

Taqwa is leaving off every form of disobedience to Allah Ta’ala.


Rich is that person whose wealth is in his heart.


Close your eyes to Haraam and open your eyes to Halaal (i.e. your wife) 

– and you will find your wife to be the most beautiful.


Allah Ta’ala looks for an excuse to forgive;

Allah Ta’ala does not look for an excuse to punish.


When a person abstains from sins and is occupied in good deeds, 

he is living in the shade of Jannah.


 Allah Ta’ala greatly loves that Ibaadah that ends with Istighfaar.


Without any request or application, Allah Ta’ala gave us this passport of Imaan – 

which is the passport of Jannah.

If we lose it and return to the Hereafter without it, 

there are no application forms that can be filled in for a new passport.

May Allah Ta’ala grant us the understanding, the concern and the Taufeeq of all 

those deeds which will be a means of preserving our Imaan. 

May Allah Ta’ala protect our Imaan, in these times of great Fitnah.


It is Allah Ta’ala’s great favour upon us that He has instructed us to carry out 

the same act that He and His Malaa’ikah do – which is conveying Durood Sharief

to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam).

Value this privilege by reciting Durood Sharief in abundance.

Read Durood Sharief with love and respect.

“Indeed, Allah and His Angels confer blessings upon the Nabi. 

O you who believe, ask [Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask 

[Allah to grant him] peace.”

[Surah Al-Ahzaab 33 : 56]


If a person is blessed with the great quality of Tawakkul (placing his trust in Allah Ta’ala), he will be freed from the anxieties and worries of Dunya.


The Sheikh distributes the candy, sweets and chocolates of Allah Ta’ala’s love in his Majaalis. Those who accept will experience the unsurpassed sweetness and enjoyment of Allah Ta’ala’s love.



Our success and failure does not lie outside of us. Our success and failure lie inside of us.


People say: “Paint the town red!” – that is, go out, live a free life, live a wild life, make merry …in sins.

Indulgence in sins is ‘painting’ one’s heart and life red with the flames of Azaab (punishment).


We are seeking medication in the poison of sins; seeking solutions to our problems in sins, and searching for way out of our difficulties but locking all the doors of escape with our indulgence in sins.

The medication is Sincere Taubah from all sins; the solution is obedience to Allah Ta’ala and His Rasul (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam); and the way out is Taqwa (abstinence from sins).
