Hakeemul Ummah Hadhrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi
needs no introduction. He is the author of many books
including the famous Beheshti Zewar and Bayaanul Qur’aan, a
Tafseer of the Qur’aan in Urdu comprising of three volumes. His
books have covered all the various sciences of the Deen. His
sermons, lectures and advices (Malfoozaat and Irshaadaat) have
been transcribed by many.
This booklet is a translation of one of those transcripts. The original
is in the Urdu language under the name:
IRSHAADAAT/MALFOOZAAT published by Kutub Khaana
Mazhari, Gulshan Iqbal, Karachi, Pakistan.
Irshaad or Malfooz means a statement of advice. I have attempted
to give each Irshaad a heading, but do remember there are
numerous Irshaadaat which have much more in them than what the
May Allah grant one and all the guidance to practice on these
advices. May He through His Grace accept this effort and bless us
with joy and prosperity in both worlds. Aameen.
May Allah Fill Hadhrat’s grave with Noor and grant him a lofty
status in the hereafter. Aameen.
Sometimes due to certain circumstances it becomes difficult to
verbally thank and express gratitude to someone. I hereby take this
opportunity to dedicate the Thawaab of this translation to my
parents who have reared, educated and supported me in comfort
and adversity. I can never repay them nor express adequate
gratitude for their kindness. It is only Almighty Allah who can
adequately repay them on my behalf. May Allah Ta’aala grant
them the full reward of this translation. May He also grant them
Maghfirat and eternal pleasure. Aameen.
O reader! I earnestly request you to also constantly remember
them in your pious Du’aas. Jazaakumullaah.
