أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Moulana Mu`een-ud-Deen Ajmeri was renowned for his mastery in the field of philosophy. He had once heard of the prominence and piety of Shaikh-ul-Hind Moulana Mahmood-ul-Hasan rahmatullahi alaih. Hence, he decided to travel to Deoband and pay him a visit. It was during summer. When he arrived at the home of Shaikh-ul-Hind rahmatullahi alaih he met a person dressed only in a lungi and a vest. He introduced himself to him and said, “I have come to meet Hadhrat Moulana Mahmood-ul-Hasan Sahib.” This person welcomed him in with a lot of respect and seated him saying, “You will soon meet him.”

 

Whilst waiting, this person served Moulana Ajmeri with refreshments. Moulana Ajmeri told him, “Kindly inform Hadhrat Moulana Mahmood-ul-Hasan.” This person replied, “Don’t worry and make yourself comfortable.” After a little while, this person now brought some food and insisted on Moulana Ajmeri that he partakes of the meal. Moulana Ajmeri told him, “I have come to meet Hadhrat Moulana Mahmood-ul-Hasan. Please inform him.” This person told Moulana, “He has been notified. Partake of the meal and you will meet him.”

After Moulana Ajmeri partook of the meal, this person began fanning him. When this continued for some time, Moulana Ajmeri became annoyed and said, “You are wasting my time. I have come to meet Moulana and it has been so long yet you have not let me meet him.” This person then said, “The reality of the matter is that there is no Moulana over here. However, this insignificant servant’s name is Mahmood.”

Hearing this reply, Moulana Ajmeri was totally astounded and realised the worth of Hadhrat Shaikh-ul-Hind rahmatullahi alaih. (Al-Balaagh – Mufti A`zam Number, p. 232)
