‘Allamah Yusuf Binori Spurning a Donation

A person came to the Jamiatul ‘Uloom al-Islamiyah ‘Allamah Binori Town originator Maulana Sayed Muhammad  Yusuf Binori رحمۃ اللہ علیہ with a big donation and said: “Hadhrat! I’ve brought this donation for your Madrassa.”

Maulana said in reply: “Our Madrassa’s expenses of one year have been covered. That’s why please take the donation and give it to a Madrassa who are entitled to this donation more than us.”

“Hadhrat! I’ve brought this for your Madrassa.” He gave him the same reply again. He kept on insisting, but Maulana did not accept. At the end he stood up and while leaving said: “Hadhrat! You’ll find no-one giving you such a big donation.”

To that he replied: “And you’ll find no one spurning such a big donation either.”
