A seeker requested for a meditation (muraqaba).
Hakim al Umma Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Allah have mercy on him) replied,
‘Meditations (muraqabaat) are less beneficial these days. Remembrance with contemplation, either verbally or by reading books is more suitable for the nature of people these days.’
