Whilst discussing the life of Hazrat Moulana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi Rahmatullah alayh, Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi Rahmatullah alayh mentioned: “Compared to the benefit I acquired through studying, teaching and carrying out spiritual exercises in self reformation, I found greater benefit in remaining in the company of these great luminaries and closely observing their lives. After closely examining their lives, one acquires a true understanding of Islam.” (Malfoozaat of Hakeemul Ummah Rahmatullah alayh 10/344)
