Being Considerate to the Host

Once, Hadhrat Moullana Khaleel Ahmad Saharanpuri (rahmatullahi alaihi) arrived at Meerut during the late portion of the night. Thus, he felt that if he went to Hadhrat Moulana Aashiq Ilaahi Sahib (rahmatullahi alaihi) at that time of the night, he would be disturbing him. Hence, he slept in the Musjid. When he awoke for Tahajjud, he lowered a bucket into the well to draw out water.

In the meantime, Hadhrat Moulana Aashiq Ilaahi Sahib (rahmatullahi alaihi) whilst asleep dreamt that Hadhrat (rahmatullahi alaihi) had come and slept in the Musjid and is now drawing water out of the well. Suddenly his eyes opened and he could hear the sound of a bucket in the well. He got up with a shock to find Hadhrat (rahmatullahi alaihi) drawing water from the well. Immediately he came up to Hadhrat (rahmatullahi alaihi) and asked, “Why didn’t you wake me up?” Hadhrat (rahmatullahi alaihi) replied, “What was the need to disturb your sleep? I slept very comfortably in the Musjid.” (Malfoozaat of Faqeeh-ul-Ummat Vol 2 Pg 377)
