(Respected Wife of Dr. Hafeezullah Madani [rahimahullah] - Part One)

The respected wife of Hazrat Doctor Hafeezullah Sukkharwi Muhaajir Madani (rahimahullah) was born in March 1917, and passed away in July 1992 at the age of 75.

She had acquired the basic secular education under private tutelage. When it came to Deen, she had practically memorized the entire Behishti Zewar. Hence, many women would come and ask her their various masaa-il which she would promptly answer from Behishti Zewar. Furthermore, she had read the Mawaa‘iz (discourses) Malfoozaat (selected sayings) and other works of Hazrat Moulana Ashraf ‘Ali Thaanwi (rahimahullah) multiple times. As a result of constantly reading his works, her mindset and outlook had become one that completely conformed to Deen and the sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). She was thus filled with a perpetual motivation to carry out righteous works, and possessed a strong aversion for sin and bid‘ah (innovated practices). Practicing on Deen had literally become her second nature.

Remember the last time your child scribbled on the walls with a permanent marker? Did you reprimand and perhaps punish the child for this misdemeanor? If not at the first instance, then you probably did punish the child when he did it for the second or third time.

Remember the last time one of your friends spoke ill of you in your absence? When her crass comments and hurtful remarks reached your ears, did you choose to overlook and forgive? If you did, then what happened when she continued to behave in this manner? In all probability, you ‘wrote her off as a friend’ and decided to move on. Even if this friend thereafter came to you and begged your forgiveness, you may have forgiven her, but it’s unlikely that you will forget the manner in which she stabbed you in the back.

1. When meeting a person, do so smilingly and pleasantly.

2. When meeting a person for the first time, introduce yourself by stating your name, the place in which you live and the purpose for your visit/meeting.

3. Do not meet a person at a time that will inconvenience him due to him being involved in some work, resting, etc.

4. Do not prolong the duration of the visit and inconvenience the person. Often, women visit other women at their homes and stay so long that the woman’s work is affected e.g. she is unable to cook and complete the other chores of the home. This naturally causes her difficulty and inconvenience.

There were once two brothers in the Banu Israaeel who were both kings, ruling over separate cities. One of the brothers would treat his relatives and family members kindly and was just and fair to his subjects, while the other brother would ill-treat his relatives and family members and would oppress his subjects.

During the era of these two kings, there was a Nabi (‘alaihis salaam) to whom Allah Ta‘ala sent revelation saying, “Only three years remain from the life of the king who is kind and treats his family and subjects kindly, and thirty years remain from the life of the king who treats his family and subjects oppressively.”
