Lateefah-e-Ghaibi (favour of the unseen)


Someone had complained to Moulana Gangohi رحمة الله عليه, “At the time of Tahajjud, someone would daily appear in my dream and wake me up for Tahajjud salaah. On one occasion I did not get up due to laziness and since then I have not seen this person in my dream.”

Hadhrat Gangohi replied: “A lateefah-e-ghaibi is an extremely sensitive guest. It will depart with the slightest negligence from you.”

(Therefore, a saalik should value these lataa-if (pl. of lateefah) and consider them to be a favour of Allah Ta`ala thus making shukr (being grateful) for it.)
