Hazrat Maroof Khakhi (Rahmatullahi Alayh) was extremely remorseful for being unable to attend the janazah salaah of Imam Yusuf (Rahmatullahi Alayh). On being asked the reason for this he replied: “Last night I saw a dream. It was as though I entered Jannat wherein I caught sight of a huge palace. I asked: “Who does this masterpiece belong to?” I was told: “This is exclusively reserved for the illustrious Imaam Abu Yusuf (Rahmatullahi Alayh).” I responded: “Subhanallah, in lieu of what deed has he become entitled to such a magnificent reward?” I received the following reply: “It is due to teaching the people and patiently enduring the difficulties they imposed on him.”
