Imam al-Rabbani is undoubtedly one of the great sultans of the spiritual world who continues to live in the hearts of the believers. This friend of Allah was born four and a half centuries ago in the town of Sirhind, India. However, thanks to his exemplary life which was spent in struggle, defending the knowledge of the unity of Allah, Allah Almighty made all Muslims love him. His love exceeded the borders of India in a short time and spread across the whole world.
Today, many Sufi paths, especially the Naqshibandiyya order, benefit from Imam al-Rabbani’s guidance and spiritual light. Even after his temporal life, this great spiritual guide has been an actual criterion for the followers of the Prophet Muhammad. From his grave, he continues his service of delivering the message of Islam and guidance as a torch guiding to the straight path from the time he lived into the future.
In this booklet, you will find a little glimpse to Imam al-Rabbani’s life and spiritual journey.
Allah said: On the Day of Judgment,] every human being will be held in pledge for whatever [evil] he has wrought –save those who shall have attained to righteousness: [dwelling] In gardens [of paradise], they will inquire - of those who were lost in sin: - "What has brought you into hell-fire?" -They will answer: "We were not among those who prayed Surah Al Mudhathir (74) 38 – 43.
And the Messenger of Allah informed us about the Day of Judgment:
The first thing for which the Muslim will be brought to account on the Day of Resurrection will be the prescribed prayers. If they are complete, all well and good, otherwise it will be said: ‘Look and see whether he has any voluntary prayers.’ If he has any voluntary prayers, his prescribed prayers will be completed from his voluntary prayers. Then the same will be done with regard to all his obligatory deeds. Ibn Maja Book 5 Hadith n°623
To this must be added the divine order contained in this verse:
O you who have attained to faith! When you are about to pray, wash your face, and your hands and arms up to the elbows, and pass your [wet] hands lightly over your head, and [wash] your feet up to the ankles. And if you are in a state requiring total ablution, purify yourselves. … Surah Al Maida (5) verse 6.
This booklet has been therefore designed to respond to divine injunctions and prophetic recommendation and to teach the best way to act in the hope of obtaining divine satisfaction on the Day on which there is no doubt.
Allah, glory unto Him, created us in the best appearance, with a pure heart. Allah, glory unto him, has sent prophets and books and through them invites us to His Paradise. He wants us to return to Paradise, to the purest and most exceptional form of life, in a character that is worthy of that purity. He expects us to be delicate and sensitive Muslims with good manners.
After true faith, deeds of worship offered purely for the sake of the Almighty and observing what is permissible and impermissible, there come the principles of morality commanded by our Lord. There are further points of sensitivity and elegance within these general moral principles which we call manners. Manifesting these sensitivities and courtesy to other members of society is called “etiquette (Adāb al-Muasharah) or good manners”
This is what is explained in detail in this book which is in your hands.
We wish you profit and good life after having read this book.

Unfortunately, in today's world, with the dominance of the capitalist and materialistic systems, we are witnessing a sad picture that reveals the exploitation of the weakest in favour of the wasteful waste of the strongest.
The most pathetic is that we see Islamic circles that claim the "piety" to be carried away by this influx of mismanagement. This Muslim community is prey to luxury, waste, the pursuit of prestige and unfortunately, Muslims today are deaf to calls for help and blind to the suffering of the oppressed.
Waste is usually defined by using one's material goods to be seen, to gain prestige, but this is a limited definition. In fact, the waste characterizes a transgression of the divine limits and a passing of the limits on all the planes and not only the material. It is a way of life, a state of mind, a disposition of the heart and a mentality that denotes a depravity of morals on all aspects of life. From this point of view, the most dangerous waste remains the one that compromises the spiritual life of the human being. In this small book we are trying to provide a much broader definition. Thus, let us present to you a tempting program composed beforehand of themes such as wasting in faith, conviction and in adoration, then, waste of time, knowledge, moral values, in contemplation, in the gain, in the gift, of health and in the diet.
