Request for khilafat from Moulana Thanwi Rahmatullahi Alayhi

PrintE-mail

Someone had given Hadhrat Thanwi Rahmatullahi Alayhi two rupees as a gift and then asked, “Can you grant me khilaafat?”

Hadhrat Thanwi replied, “Is khilaafat so cheap? How can you receive khilaafat in exchange of two rupees when you cannot even buy a barber’s kit bag for two rupees?”

 

NOTE: The purpose of mentioning the last two incidents was that one should take bay`at and present oneself in the service of the mashaayikh with the intention of islaah (reformation). One should never have the desire of receiving khilaafat as this is a means of depriving oneself from the faiz (blessings) of the shaikh.
