In this world, there are some rules and regulations regarding every work. If the rules of any work are not followed, sometimes it may cause loss instead of bringing benefits. For example, if a driver does not drive by following the traffic rules, he may even lose his life. Similarly, there are some rules as well as precautions of giving Tarbiyyah. If they are not observed, it may cause damage. Let's read some precautions of giving Tarbiyyah.


One of the things that should be taken care of while giving Tarbiyyah is that the conversation should not be too long because the other person may get bored with it. Try to state your purpose in minimum number of words so that the person listening to you remains attentive and the thing you have said is etched on his mind. The sentences we have been given by Shaykh e Tareeqat, Ameer e Ahl e Sunnat for presenting the Call towards righteousness during a Madani visit consist of a few lines which are short and comprehensive.

There are many sentences in blessed Ahadees which are quite short with respect to the number of words, but they carry a large number of meanings. These sentences are called Jawami ul Kalim. Let's read three blessed Ahadees here.

1) Nothing ever adjoined to a thing better than forbearance adjoined to knowledge. (Mujam Awsat, vol 3, pp 362, Hadees 4846)

2) Moderation in spending is half-economy, and to love people is half-intelligence, and a good question is half-knowledge. (Shu ab-ul-Iman, vol 5, pp 254, Hadees 6568)

3) On the day of Judgment, in the sight of Allah Almighty, the person will have the worst status who has destroyed his Hereafter for the sake of the world of someone else. (Ibn-e-Majah, vol 4, pp 339, Hadees 3966)

From these blessed Ahadees, it can be concluded that our Beloved Prophet Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam used to have a conversation by using very few words which meaning wise are comprehensive.

In the same way, to give Tarbiyyah all the time causes boredom or rather sometimes even reaction. Giving untimely Tarbiyyah causes loss instead of bringing benefits. Sayyiduna Abdullah Bin Masood RadiAllaho Ta-Aala Anh would deliver sermon every Thursday. When a wish to deliver a sermon daily was expressed to him, he RadiAllaho Ta-Aala Anh said : I dislike making you feel bored. I take care of you as the Holy Prophet Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam used to do so with us for fear of boredom. ( Bukhari, vol 1, pp 42, Hadees 70)

Therefore the person giving Tarbiyyah should keep finding a favourable opportunity for giving Tarbiyyah and then as he gets the opportunity, he should get the most out of it, he should not be negligent in giving Tarbiyyah.
