Love for the poor

Love for the poor

 

In spite of this awe and grandeur, even if a child would talk to him, Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) would listen to the child attentively.  He would respect elders.  He would be the first person to greet others with Salaam.  He would sit among the poor and infirm and he would never stand for a misguided or a rich person.

 

Whenever any person would gift something, Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam would not touch it himself, but order the person to keep under the prayer mat.  Then he would order his servant to distribute it to among the poor.

 

Hadhrat Shaykh ‘Abdur Razzaq (May Allah shower His mercy on him) says: While coming from Hajj, my father stopped at a place.  He inquired as to which house was the poorest in that area.  A certain house, which was more of a tent, was pointed out to him.  With the permission of the master of the house, Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) spent the night there.  He did not accept the request of many rich and affluent people to spend the night in their house.  His lovers started bringing many kinds of dishes, animals and gold, silver etc. to give to the Shaykh.  Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam gave everything to the old couple living there and he left the area in the morning.
