In the instructions posted for those living in his khanqah, Hadhrat Mawlana Wasiullah (may Allah have mercy on him) wrote,
“Everyone is responsible for the protection of his belongings.
If something is stolen, then both the individual who’s stuff it is and the thief will be expelled from the khanqah.
The expulsion of the aggrieved is because a person who is incapable of protecting his personal effects how is he expected to safeguard his religion.”
