Respected Mufti Saahib

As Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh

Kindly favour me with some advice.


Respected Brother

As Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh

Hereunder is some advice as requested:

1. Regard yourself as the lowest of all people (in status) and worse than every Muslim (in spiritual condition)

2. Constantly express gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala for his bounties and favours.

3. Maintain your focus towards acquiring the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala in everything you do.

4. Refrain from the disobedience of Allah Ta‘ala.

5. Keep the love of Rasulullah Sallalahu  Allayhi Wassallam dominant over the love of all the creation.

6. Refrain totally from hurting the feelings of anyone.

May Allah Ta‘ala grant you and me the ability to practice upon this advice.[2]
