Hadhrat Mawlana Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (may Allah preserve him) said,
“Once my respected teacher Mufti Rasheed Ahmad visited Mawlana Khair Mohammad Jahlinderi (may Allah have mercy on them) a senior khalifa of Hadhrat Thanawi and founder of Khairul Madaris Multan, after a considerable period of time.
Hadhrat Mawlana complained that it had been a very long time since he last visited. Mufti Rasheed excused that it was becuase of being very busy that he could not come. Hadhrat Mawlana lovingly chided him that the excuse of not having time for something is evident of lack of importance of that thing.”
Hadhrat Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (may Allah allow us to benefit from him abundantly) added,
“These days people often write to me that we are unable to complete our daily recitations (wird) because of our hectic schedule. This is evident of their priorities. Things less important are neglected. How can these people traverse the path?”
Subhan Allah! I never thought of it like that. Quite recently, my daily awrad and wazaif had taken a plunge due to my constant occupation with worldly things and I would justify it by saying that its OK since I’m busy. Astaghfirullah! I will insha’Allah try to push myself to finish them like before.
