Sheikh’s dua & Mureed’s work

Explaining Hazrat Hakeemul Ummat ra’s statement;

“No doubt the dua and barakah of Sheikh plays a major role in one’s islah (reformation). But its status is that of supplementary assistance and not the main thing to rely on exclusively.”

Sayyidi wa sanadi Hazrat Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani sahib db said:

“It means that you will have to do the work yourself. Dua, attention and guidance of the Sheikh becomes a motivation and catalyst for this work. It increases the aspiration, boosts the determination and assists its performance. But you will have to toil and do the task yourself. You will have to travel yourself.”
