Words of Worth – No 141-150

200 Statements of Hadhrat Maseehul Ummat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Sahib (Rahmatullahi Alaih)

141) It does not befit one in charge of affairs to adopt a habit of lengthy discussion. (Such a person has to plan and make decisions, and this can only be achieved by speaking less and ponder­ing. Secondly he would have to command his subordinates to do certain things, and if he continues reprimanding them for every blemish, they will turn a deaf ear to him and his words will no more be effective.)
142) To search for, or to expose the fault of someone, is an extremely evil quality.
143) The vitality of knowledge is to ask and to practice. (In other words, in order to learn one must ask. Then to preserve that learning one needs to practice it).
144) Suspicion is the root of all faults.
145) If a saalik does not refrain from mingling and meeting, it will be very difficult for him to tread the path of sulook.
146) Help becomes available through courage.
147) You will receive help commensurate with your courage.
148) Help is promised on adopting courage; the courage of man brings the help of Allah Ta’ala.
149) The Shaikh should have a tongue and the mureed an ear. (Meaning that when the Shaikh commands the mureed to do something he should accept and carry it out immaterial of whether he understands the wisdom behind it or not, and he should not question the Shaikh as to why it should be done).
150) When one is considered an aalim in society then it becomes very necessary for him to honour the quality of Ilm (knowledge).
