Once, a person asked Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) something related to Hazrat’s domestic life for the benefit of taking lesson. After Hazrat responded, the person then asked forgiveness for posing such a question. Hazrat Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) replied, “No, you have not caused me any grief or pain.” Hazrat then mentioned: “Alhamdulillah Allah Ta’ala blessed me with such a mindset through which I am not hurt or grieved through people asking me questions relating to deen. I say to myself that I will be greatly rewarded by Allah Ta’ala through advising the person in matters of deen.” (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 10/ 280)
