Hazratwala’s (DB) Adab

Once a person told Hazratwala (DB) that I saw in my dream that the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam was with you.  Immediately Hazratwala (DB) corrected this person and said, “Do not say that the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam) was with me”, –  do not put me ahead of him – rather say, “I saw you with the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam).”  Hazratwala (DB) went on to say that once my Shaykh, Hazrat Muhyi As-Sunnah Mawlana Shah Abrar ul-Haq Sahib (RA) was asked in Makkah, “Did Maulana Muhammad Ahmad Sahib (RA) come with you?”  Hazrat Maulana Abrar ul-Haq Sahib (RA) immediately replied, “No, he did not come with me, rather I came with him.

Subhaanallah!  Look at how our elders dealt with one another and the level of respect they had that they would not tolerate their names being mentioned before those who were above them.  That is how much control they had over their tongue and over their ears.

I pray that Allah grant us the same level of adab for our elders. Aameen!
