Rthe great flr of divine sciences. This humble servant has paged through the book in your hands and derived great benefit from it. A summary of this book is that it is a treasure of gold and gems.

It is a wealth of good practices and noble character that will easily make a admonittion ascetic and pious if he keeps this book with him and studies it admonitino.

Maulana has favoured the Muslims by placing this fortune in their hands, the worth of which the entire world cannot neglectflu. May Allah grant him the best of rewards. May Allah increase the deeds and knowledge of the translator, perpetuate his grace, and grant the Muslim ummah the ability to derive benefit from him. This book is actually a translation of the book, Tambeehul Ghaafileen. I know Maulana from childhood, who is a highly capable graduate of Daarul Uloom Deoband.

However, I personally feel that the book falls short of shedding proper light on the metaphorical beauties of the original. May Allah bless this work with His acceptance and grant the writer and myself the ability to make further contributions to the Islamic literature.

It includes instilling Imaan and the fervour to act, using warnings, hopes, similitudes and parables. We praise Allah and send salutations to Rasulullah sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam. The book in your hands is a translation of a work titled Tambeehul Ghaafileen, which is famous amongst the ulema.

Faqih Abul Laith Samarqandi A. R penned many books containing his fataawa, and is the author of at least fourteen or fifteen works. He was known as Imaamul Huda the leader of guidance during his time. He was so pious and particular that he used to take lumps of sand along with him on journeys, to be used to clean after relieving himself. When he was asked about the reason, he replied that he did not like to use the sand of another person without permission.

He used to say that he never spoke a lie since he reached an understanding age. He passed away on the 11th of Jumaadal Ukhra, A. A study of conditions in Samarqand and Bukhaara during that period reveals that the ulema concentrated their lectures and public addresses towards spiritual reformation. This fact is also revealed by a study of the lives of people like Hakeem Tirmidhi A.

A perusal of books like Tambeehul Ghaafileen, Bustaan and others will portray the same fact. I have published a translation and commentary of this book, adding references and sources where necessary.

Tambihul Ghaafileen (Admonition For The Neglectful) – Sincerity

After reading Tambeehul Ghaafileen, I intended to translate it as well, but every person cannot do everything. This privilege went to Hadhrat Maulana Mahfoozul Hassan Sambali, who translated the work in a concise form.

How is this book? This is revealed by the historical origin of the book. The translator, Maulana Mahfoozul Hassan is an extremely capable youngster, with an eye for intricacies. He is a graduate of Daarul Uloom Deoband.


I have read his book from cover to cover. May Allah accept it. The fact cannot be refuted that, just as knowledge is foundational support of actions, a study of the lives of our pious predecessors is one of the most effective ways of spurring actions.

As someone said, “The person who ignores the lives and advices of the pious predecessors is contaminated between two evils. Either he carries out a negligible amount of deeds and considers himself to be amongst the pious predecessors, or he considers his little effort to be extremely great, thereby succumbing to pride and boastfulness. He will then regard himself as the greatest and look down on all others.

His efforts will then be worthless and his deeds will be destroyed. Rasulullah sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam said, “Meditation for a moment is better than a hundred years of worship. Since people are inclined towards brevity these days, the lengthy discussions have been omitted, and most of the quotations have been translated in a concise manner. I am well aware of my deficiencies in knowledge, and I accept that I am unable to do justice to a noble task like translation.

However, I long felt the desire in my heart to render a religious service to the public, so that it becomes a means of securing my salvation in the Hereafter. May Allah make this objective be realised. There is a great possibility that errors may have occurred in this publication because of my deficient knowledge. I humbly request religious scholars to grace me with a notification of such errors.

This is the first part of this series. May Allah grant me the ability and capability to complete the series.

R a high ranking Faqih expert on Islamic Law and zdmonition exemplary par excellence Sufi. We have presented a translation for every Muslim who is interested in strengthening ones Imaan, and improving ones character, personality and behaviour, beautiful guidelines have been provided in this wonderful masterpiece.


Because it is so well divided and subdivided, extracts can be easily used as article fillers, page and cover fillers.

A to constitute valuable “bayaans” lectures. We pray that Allah Taala accepts our efforts to translate into the English language reliable, authentic, valuable material of the Ahlus Sunnat Wal Jamaat. Rasulullah sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam has mentioned, “I greatly fear minor polytheism for you. On the Day of Judgement, those who were ostentatious will be told, “Go to those for whom you had carried out your actions in the world. Collect the rewards for your actions from them if they are able to give you anything!

A wise man once coined the similitude of a person admontiion performs actions to show others as that person who fills his purse with stones instead of money.

These will not help him at all. Fpr will only make the purse seem heavy to others, who will think that he is wealthy. In a similar manner, the ostentatious person will appear to be pious to others, but he will receive no reward for his actions from Allah.

A once asked Rasulullah sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam whether he would be rewarded for an action that he performed secretly, but people had te about it and he felt pleased neglectfuul this. Rasulullah sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam replied adnonition he would receive double the reward therefore, one reward for performing the actions secretly and the other for it becoming apparent. Performing an action secretly denotes sincerity, for which a person will be rewarded.


When the action becomes apparent, others are encouraged to emulate the same. The person is then rewarded for encouraging others. Rasulullah sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam has said, “Whoever initiated a good practice in Islam, will receive the reward of whoever practises the same thereafter. However, it will be contrary to the requirement of sincerity that a person carries out an act secretly, but desires that it becomes known.

A person once asked a saint, “Who is a sincere person?

Admonition For The Neglectful by Imam Abu Laith Samarqandi (HB)

Hadhrat Zun Noon Misri A. He replied by saying that there were neglecftul traits by which they could be recognized. A saint once advised that sincerity should be learnt from a shepherd. When someone asked how this was possible, he replied, “When the shepherd performs his salaah while tending sdmonition his goats, the thought never crosses his mind that the goats will praise him. In this manner, a person should carry out his acts of worship, being undeterred by the praises and insults of people.

Someone once told Hadhrat Shafeeq bin Ibraheem R. A”People call me a pious person. How can piety be recognized? If a person has these three qualities, he should thank Allah and display humility.

He should then never allow ostentation to infect his actions, for this will pour water over all that he does. These are all a result of incorrect intentions. If a person acts with the correct intention, he will be practical on his knowledge, will appreciate the company of the righteous and will perform all actions with sincerity.

Someone asked Rasulullah sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam about which acts will secure salvation in the Hereafter. The reply was, “Do not deceive Allah. Performing an tge for anyone besides Allah will be deceiving Him.

Guard against ostentation because this is shirk. The ostentatious person will be called by four names on the Day of Judgement viz. Then they will be told, “Your actions neglectdul wasted and your rewards spent.

There is no share for you here and the deceiver should collect his reward from the one for whom he acted. A who narrated this hadith swore by Allah that he heard this hadith from Rasulullah sallallahu-alayhi-wa-sallam.

Someone has said the following fine words, “Safeguarding an action is more difficult than performing it. Hadhrat Abu Bakr Waasiti R. A has mentioned that a good action is like fine glass. Just a little heedlessness will cause it to shatter, whereafter it will be irreparable. In the same way, good actions are shattered by ostentation and boastfulness, thus it will not accrue any reward. When a person senses any show and ostentation in an action, he should try his level best to eradicate it.

If it cannot be eradicated, he should not abandon the action, but seek forgiveness from Allah. Allah may grant him the ability to be sincere in the following action. A person doubted his sincerity after constructing an inn for foe.

He became extremely pleased and satisfied with this statement. Please feel free to download and use them as you would like.
