1 have not seen or experienced this incident at first hand but have heard it from two impeccable sources. Once a very high personality from among Hazrat's relatives, who holds a high position, came to visit him, while he was teaching. Up to the end of the class Hazrat paid no attention to him and only came to him at the end of his teaching hour. The man told him: "Hazrat, please remain seated where you are." Hazrat replied: "The Madressa has supplied this carpet for teaching purposes, not to sit on it and engage in personal discussions. For this reason I moved away from that spot." I have never seen him use anything belonging to the Madressa for his personal needs.

When Hazrat Maulana Khalil Ahmad Saheb Rahmatullah Alayh returned to Mazahirul Uloom after having resided in Hejaz, Arabia for a full year, my late father Maulana Mohammad Yahya Saheb Rahmatullah Alayh had already passed away at the beginning of ZilQadh 1334 Hijri. Hazrat then declined to accept any salary from the Madressa stating that because of his old age and weakness he had for quite some time up to then not been able to give his best service to the Madressa. He stated further: "But now during my absence Maulana Mohammad Yahya Saheb had in my place been teaching the Duara Hadeeth books without accepting any salary. He did this work considering it to be done on my behalf and in my place as my substitute. And he and I had been doing more work than one teacher. But at this moment, he is now no more with us and because I am unable to do the work of one teacher properly I ask to be excused from accepting any salary."

In this regard a long session of correspondence by letter ensued with Maulana Abdul Rahim Raipuri Saheb Rahmatullah Alayh. Hazrat responded: "Your presence in Mazahirul Uloom is of the utmost importance. Because of your presence the whole setup and administration of the Madressa is effected positively. Should you excuse yourself and absent yourself from the Madressa it will suffer great loss. Therefore the Madressa will now not give you a salary for teaching but as supervisor of the Madressa.

I had decided to perform 'Haj-e-badal' on behalf of my deceased daughter Shakira and had borrowed the money and handed it to Hazrat. May Allah reward Maulana well. He not only performed her Haj but I have heard that thereafter until the time he left for Egypt, he also performed many Umrahs on her behalf.

But to this day I regret not being with Hazrat Raipuri on this Haj.

On his return he said to me: "Throughout this journey I have been thinking about what I can take back for you that would please you. I thought about a mishlah, musalla and certain other things, but then I thought to myself that you would definitely express great happiness at my presenting it to you but it would not truly please your heart. I wanted something that would truly please you. After pondering over this for a long time and giving it great thought, I wore an Ihraam for Umrah from Musjid-un-­Nabawwi on your behalf."

I said: "Hazrat you tell me, could there have been any greater favour. An Umrah and on top of that performed by you and that too from Musjid-un-Nabawwi! Insha-Allah, that is more than enough for me."

Due to the barakat of Hazrat's favours, sincerity and love, I have received news of people having performed hundreds of Umrahs on my behalf. Lately together with Umrahs, news of Haj-e­-Badal on my behalf has also reached me. In some years, I have been informed of up to ten or twelve Haj-e-Badal having been performed.

This is an extract of letter written by Haji Imdadullah Muhajir Makki Rahmatullah Alayhi) to someone
Extracted from Aap Beti, by Hazrat Sheikh Zakariyya (Rahmatullah Alayhi)

A very big fault made by the rich and nobility is that because of their ill- understanding, they have discarded the Sunnat of Mashwarah (consulting with others). For the sake of teaching the muslims, Allah commanded His Rasul Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam:

"And consult with them in the organisation of affairs...." [Aayat]

The Christians have acted upon this command by establishing numerous councils and have given every newspaper and every person the right to voice his opinion. Whatever the result thereof can be, is known.

Muslims have this insanity in them that they feel, that if they should consult with others, people will look at them as being men of little intelligence or that people will then become participants in governing their affairs or that they do not consider others as being capable of giving advice!

Hence I give this well-meant advice to all those whose welfare I have at heart, that before they come here, they should first arrange their affairs at home well, Even if their stay here will only last for about four or five months, because if they come here having only done half the work, they will continuously be plagued with concern and worries.

To find such people who are intelligent and at the same time honest and trustworthy is difficult, but if you do, you should praise and thank Allah for such persons (to take over your responsibilities in your absence). They should be appreciated, because Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: "He who does not thank people, is not grateful to Allah,"
Allah Ta'ala Himself appreciates and He is the praised One. He treats every one according to their characters. Good deeds are rewarded up to at least ten times and evil deeds are only punished once.

"Is he who is a believer equal to him who is an evildoer? No, they are not."

On this point too, the foreigners (British) have acted thoroughly and you can see how they
express their gratitude for good acts performed by even the lowest of their employees or subjects. If it is an employee you will find his name mentioned quite often in despatches or reports praising him and increase in salary and rank. Similarly they honour their employees by means of giving them titles, whereby the loyalty and devotion of such subjects are cemented.

It stands to reason that if you treat the loyal and devoted subject in the same manner as you treat the non-devoted and unfaithful one, the faithful one will tend to become inclined towards acting in a non-devoted and unfaithful manner towards the ruler. Then all affairs will go out of control.

It is a major fault of muslim nobles and rulers that they do not make a distinction between the capable and the incapable. They know that a certain person is intelligent and honest but because of arrogance and lack of understanding do not give the man due recognition. Some have this insane idea that if we praise him, we will cause him to become spoiled. (Na-oozu billah). They consider their brains to be even better than the rules of Shari'at. But this humble one has seen numerous instances where the Ruler himself has caused an honest worker to become an unfaithful, deceiving person.

This is because the poor employee had made use of his time in the service of his master, and asked for some needs for himself and instead of fifty, the master gives him twenty-five. So from where could he settle his affairs except through dishonesty? But if the master acted in accordance with the laws of Allah and his Rasul Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam all these affairs could be properly rectified.
