Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

Some students studying at Jalalabaad came today to meet me. Upon their arrival, they informed me that the madrasah had given them leave till 4 o’ clock on that day and, therefore, they could only remain in Sahaaranpur for a short while. Hazrat Shaikh (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) smiled and expressed his pleasure and satisfaction over their sense of responsibility and their keeping to time. He then said: “Whenever I would seek permission from Hazrat Moulana Khaleel Ahmad Sahaaranpuri (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) to go to my hometown, Khandla, I would ensure that I returned on time and did not take extra leave, despite the fact that on certain times some important affair used to arise which demanded that I remain longer.” (Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 109)
