Hakim al Umma Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘There are three conditions for effectively serving others and gaining reward in hereafter. They are,
1. Sincerity . That is seeking Allah’s pleasure in doing it.
2. Having a close relationship. That is, who is being served does not feel burdened by it.
3. Knowing the task being done.’
