There is a famous Arabic saying, “Whoever loves something, he will always speak about it.” Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi Saaheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) had such a relationship with the Quraan Majeed that its recitation was always on his tongue. The fire of the love of Allah Ta‘ala that burned in his heart was fuelled with the Quraan Majeed.

On journey too, Hazrat (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) would always remain engaged in the recitation of the Quraan Majeed. He used to recite slowly with tajweed and ponder over the deep meaning of the Quraan Majeed. He used to travel on foot from Sahaaranpur to Gangoh (which was 28 miles apart). Once, someone asked him, “How long does it take to travel to Gangoh?” He replied, “I don’t know of the time, but I can easily say that I read 20 to 22 paras in that time.” He would leave Sahaaranpur at fajr time and reach Gangoh well before jumu‘ah.”(Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) – His life and works, pg. 113)
