More than 60 years have passed since Pakistan came into existence in the name of Islam. However, many people now question the status of Pakistan as an Islamic state since no significant progress has been made to implement Islamic law in the country.
The following excerpt from one of the books of Hazrat Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahab RA answers this question comprehensively in light of the opinions of leading scholars such as Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi RA.

Jaza ul Aamaal is one of the many masterpieces of Hakeem ul Ummah Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi R.A. In this book, Hazrat Thanvi R.A. has categorically mentioned the benefits of noble actions and praise worthy morals in both this world and the hereafter. Similarly, the severe punishments of sinful acts in both this world and the hereafter have been discussed in detail.
The book consists of 4 major parts
Part 1: The relationship between sinful acts and their punishment in this world, Dunya
Part 2: The relationship between noble deeds and their blessings in this world, Dunya
Part 3: The relationship between sinful acts and their punishment in the hereafter, Aakhirah
Part 4: The relationship between noble acts and their bounties in the hereafter, Aakhirah
In this book, Hazrat Thanvi R.A has clarified the misconception prevailent amongst the masses about the relationship of our actions in this world and their outcomes in the hereafter.

Recently an old audio lecture of Hazrat Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahab Db was published as a book from Khanqah Imdadiya Ashrafiya, Karachi (part of the series of written lectures by Hazrat Walal Db). The book is titled as “Huqooq ul Waalidain” which means “The Rights of Parents” in English.
There have, obviously, been many books published on this topic before, however, Hazrat Wala Db has his own unique way of addressing issues which is filled with the love of Allah SWT and examples from the lives of our pious elders. This is a very beneficial book as it makes us review our conduct with our parents very closely.
The online version of this book is, Alhamdulillah, now available and can be read on the link below. An English translation will also be available, insha Allah, in near future. May Allah SWT help us practice upon the message of this book as well.
Do share it with your friends and family as well, it’ll be your Sadqa e Jaariya insha Allah!
