One day Khwājah ʿAbdul Khāliq Ghajadwānī رحمه الله took the hand of his son, Khwājah ʾAwliyāʾ Kabīr رحمه الله , in his hand and said, “O my son! Make Taqwā your distinguishing feature. Be firm with your Wazhāʾif and worship. Meditate over your condition. Fear Allāh. Fulfil the rights of Allāh, Rasūlullāh ﷺ and the religion. By observing these qualities you will attain Allāh. Obey Allāh تبارك و تعلى  for He is your Guardian. Read the Qurʾān, whether from memory or by looking. Read it whilst pondering over it. Read with sadness and weep. Do not move even one of your feet away from seeking knowledge. Study Jurisprudence and Ḥadīth and avoid the ignorant amongst the Ṣūfiyāʾ – Mashāʾikh Naqshbandīyah Mujaddidīyah, pp. 89 – 90
