Serving his Ustaaz

The only reason that Hazrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) had given himself up for imprisonment in Malta was to serve his ustaaz, Shaikhul Hind Moulana Mahmoodul Hasan (rahmatullahi ‘alaih). Hazrat Moulana Madani (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) rendered such service that Shaikhul Hind (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned to his wife, “My own son would not have been able to render the service which Molvi Husain Ahmad had made for me.”

Because Malta was extremely cold, and there was no hot water to make wudhu with, Hazrat Moulana Madani (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) would hold the water bag to his stomach the entire night just so that it would be warm enough for his ustaaz to use at the time of Tahajjud.

Hazratjee Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) went to school in his hometown, Barlah, and then moved onto Aligarh to continue with his education. He completed up to grade six. He always excelled in his class and would very often take the first position. However since his heart was not inclined towards worldly education, his father then took him out of school and engaged him in Deeni ta’leem.

Even whilst he was in school, he was extremely punctual in performing his salaah with jamaat. Once Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned, “Our school would terminate at 12:30 pm. Near our school was a small musjid. Daily I would go to the musjid after school and perform my Zuhr Salaah with jamaat.”

(Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 12)

   

Generosity, Preference and Sympathy

Once when speaking about the elders of Hatora, Hazrat Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned, that in those days poverty was the order of the day. Every home suffered with hunger. There were also some servants of Allah Ta‘ala whom He had blessed with abundance. They would look after the poor, see to the orphans and widows, etc. There was one person by the name of Muhammad Ilyaas, whom Qari Siddeeq Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to often speak about. He built a warehouse opposite the musjid which he filled with grain from time to time. It was his habit to take a survey of the village and give out grains to those people who did not have any food. This generosity of his was not only confined towards the Muslims, but he would look after the needs of the non-Muslims in the same way.

Fights due to Wealth

On several occasions Hazrat Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to quote Hazrat Moulana Abul Hasan ‘Ali Nadwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih),

“It is our first-hand experience that whenever a family starts progressing from a worldly perspective in wealth and material, this is the beginning of its collapse. They become the victims of fitnah and corruption. Too much of wealth is not suitable for us. There is ‘aafiyah (safety) in poverty and simplicity.”

After mentioning this, Qari Siddeeq Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) used to say that Hazrat Moulana (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) has spoken the truth. I have also seen this happen with my own eyes. Look at the condition of Baroli and Hatora. As long as there was poverty in Baroli, no one knew what fighting meant. Now that wealth is pouring in abundance, look at what has happened. Enmity for one another has increased. People are killing one another. Up to this day they are still killing one another. Hundreds of thousands of Rupees have been spent on court cases. (Hayaat-e-Siddeeq, pg. 40)

   

Tolerance

Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb’s (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) tolerance levels were such that if a person who had harmed him came to him with some need, he would fulfil that need with great happiness.

An individual whose needs were generally seen to by Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once became displeased with him due to some reason and began to oppose Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) behind his back. He tried ganging up with other members to gain some support. After some months, the same individual came back to Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) and expressed his need for some money which he could not acquire from anywhere else. Hazratjee (rahmatullahi ‘alaih), without showing any form of displeasure, gave him the required amount and did not mention a single word to him. (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 108)
