“True believers are those whose hearts tremble with awe at the mention of God, and whose faith grows stronger as they listen to His revelations. They are those who put their trust in their Lord, who pray regularly and give in alms out of what We have provided for them. Such are the true believers. They have a high standing with their Lord, His forgiveness, and an honourable provision made for them.”
Describing Hadhrat Shaykh al-Hadith Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya’s (ra) state while reciting the Quran, Hadhrat Maulana Yusuf Motala hafidhahullah writes:
The condition of Hadhrat [Shaykh al-Hadith Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya (ra)] during the recitation of the Quran was to be seen and cannot be be put in words. Tears flowed from beginning to end. His weeping would overpower him so much that his voice would not come out; he would cry for a while and then continue the recitation. This had so much effect on the listeners that they would also be in tears.
