There was a person in Gangoh who narrated an incident about a murder that had taken place near their home. The family of the deceased furnished the name of his father as one of the suspects, whereas he was completely innocent. He further narrates;

“My father had ta‘alluq (association) with Hazrat Moulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) who advised him to follow the necessary legal routes and mentioned to him, ‘Do not fear, Allah Ta‘ala will help you.’ Hence, he continued until eventually the date for the case had drawn near. He came back to Hazrat Moulana Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) to inform him about the court case, but again Hazrat Moulana Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned to him, ‘Do not fear, Allah Ta‘ala will help you.’ He had come to Gangoh on foot. The next day when he went to court, the secretary informed him that it was decided that the culprits will be punished. When he asked if his name was also recorded therein, the secretary replied in the affirmative.

Upon hearing this, he became extremely worried, especially due to the fact that Hazrat Moulana Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) had told him not to become concerned, whereas the punishment had already been decided for him. He went to a nearby musjid, made wudhu, performed two rakaats salaah and cried to Allah Ta‘ala with great humility. In that condition, he slept away. In his dream, he saw Hazrat Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) saying to him, ‘Do not fear, Allah Ta‘ala will help you.’ He then went to Sahaaranpur where he was informed that the death penalty had been issued against him. After making some enquiries to extricate himself from this situation, he was told that if the mayor from Delhi aborts this decision, then only will the resolution be changed. He thought for some time that how will he be able to secure a meeting with the mayor, as he was a poor and simple person; how will this be possible for him? Nevertheless, he went to Delhi and upon enquiry was told that the mayor will come to perform the jumu‘ah salaah in the Jaami’ Musjid. He immediately recognised the mayor and waited for him to complete his salaah. When the mayor completed his salaah, he caught hold of his sleeve and begged him to please abort the death penalty hovering over his head. The mayor pulled his hand away and in an upset tone said to him, ‘Did I not tell you, do not fear, Allah Ta‘ala will help you.’ When he looked carefully, he saw that this was Hazrat Moulana Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) himself. Thereafter his eyes opened.

His heart was now at ease. When he reached the court to hear the decision, it was told to him that the others will be punished, but he will be saved. In his delight, he immediately left for Gangoh to inform Hazrat (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) the news of his acquittal. Hazrat (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) remained silent for some time and then said, ‘Brother, dreams are only thoughts in your mind. It is not something that you can place your trust in (whereas, this person did not mention anything to Hazrat

[rahmatullahi ‘alaih] regarding his dream).’ (Malfoozaat of Faqeeh-ul-Ummah Vol 2 Pg 342)
