On one occasion, Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saaheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) fell extremely ill. He could barely walk firmly. From his house to the majlis-khana, he had to stop twice to rest. After sitting down he explained to those who were present, “I am gone extremely weak, so weak that I can barely walk to the majlis-khana. I stopped twice to rest. With great difficulty I managed to perform my zuhr salaah. I’ve got numbness in my feet. The only reason I am telling you all of this is so that you may understand that for small petty reasons you should not leave out your work. One must remain firm upon the work one is appointed to do.” (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saaheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 111)
