Arif–billah Dr Abdul Hayy Arifi (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘While reciting the blessed salutation (durood) keep this intention refreshed in your mind that Allah bestowed this method (durood) so we can develop a relationship with the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace). Allah Himself is its medium. This is a huge blessing for which we must be excessively thankful.
Reciting durood with this intention will develop the love of Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) (in us). Moreover, Allah will love us. This is because Allah loves this action and He has commanded us to do so.’
Al Balagh Arifi ra number, page 540
The blessed Companion Hazrat Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported that he (the Messenger of Allah – Allah bless him and grant him peace) was asked as to which prayer was most excellent after the prescribed prayer, and which fast was most excellent after the month of Ramadan. He said:
“The most excellent fast after Ramadan is God’s month. al-Muharram, and the most excellent prayer after what is prescribed is prayer during the night.”

A seeker wrote,
All praise is for Allah, the daily virtuous activities (ma’molaat) are being carried out punctually, however, their quality remains poor.
Sayyidi wa sanadi Shaikh Mufti Taqi Usmani (Allah keep him safe, healthy and in ‘afiyah) replied,
‘Carrying them out punctually is a great blessing in itself. Be thankful (to Allah) for it.
Moreover, the feeling of them being of poor quality is another blessing. Be thankful for it also. And ask forgiveness (from Allah for all the deficiencies).’
Islahi khutoot, qalmi
سيدى و سندى مفتى محمد تقى عثماني مدظله
تفكر أور الله كى معرفت
Shaikh Junaid Baghdadi (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘We did not acquire Tasawwuf by discussions or argumentations.
In reality we acquired it by going hungry (1), keeping awake (2) and being persistent in our actions (3).’
Eqaz al Himam, Urdu, page 332
(1) From all that is impermissible or suspicious or causes laziness.
(2) In acquiring knowledge, performing tahajjud, remembrance of Allah and intimate conversation with Allah
(3) Performance of good and abstinence from sinful deeds, both physical and that of qalb
Shaikh Zarruq (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘Tasawwuf has been defined and explained in multiple ways. They number approximately two thousand.
(However) All of them refer to a single objective.
True, sincere and absolute attention towards Allah.
This is the objective in all the paths (turuq).
And Allah knows best.’
