The Road to Allah – Selected Discourses of Hakeem ul-Ummah

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (Rahmatullahi alaih) does not need any introduction. He was very aptly conferred the title of ‘Hakeemul Ummat’ which means: the Physician of the Ummah. His bayaans are a living testimony to his expertise and profound insight into treating spiritual sicknesses – sicknesses pertaining to the moral and religious degeneration of Muslims.

And the words of advice proffered by this illustrious Aalim of the Deen still remain the panacea for all those who wish to reform their lives and journey the spiritual realm to gain the proximity and special love of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Hakeem also means ‘sage’. The wise words and sagacious advice Moulana Thanwi offers in his bayaans which were purely inspirational have helped millions of Muslims over the decades.

In the Subcontinent there has not been an Aalim whose talks have been recorded by pen as much as Hazrat Thanwi’s. Allah Ta’ala made the arrangements for the bayaans of this Mujaddid of the 13th century to be recorded and preserved for posterity.

It is therefore our good fortune to present here a selection of extracts from these Mawaa’iz. Remember that the full benefit from these extracts will only be gained when one considers oneself to be spiritually sick and morally degenerate, and in search of the cure for one’s moral and spiritual ailments.

Reflect and reflect well over the bayaans and change one’s life accordingly.

May Allah Ta’ala accept us among His close servants, Aameen.
