Once, some businessmen from Burma came to Saharanpur. When they saw the madrasah and enquired about the madrasah budget, they boldly said, “We have such rich people in Burma who can each run a large madrasah like this on his own. When we return home, we will establish a madrasah just like this over there.” Upon hearing this statement, Hadhrat Moulana Abdul Lateef Sahib (rahimahullah), the principal of the madrasah said, “Money doesn’t make a man. Man makes money. If a person is productive, he can make a huge sum for himself, but if a person has an abundance of wealth and he is not productive, then of what use is all that money to him?” (Malfoozaat of Faqeeh-ul-Ummat Vol 2 Pg 485)
