Hazrat Shah Wasiullah saheb ra wrote to a person who requested to establish islahi ta’luq (self-reformation relationship);
“All praise is to Allah SWT.
You have developed this thought and feeling (of self improvement). This is what they call taleb (true desire).
Sir! In tareeq the real thing is that this thinking and feeling (of self deficency that needs to be improved) develops.”
