A high caliber scholar murid complained about his business commitments that were preventing him from teaching at a Darul Uloom. Due to the huge debt secondary to the embezzlement of the caretaker (who was also an ‘alim) and unavailability of a responsible individual to run his enterprise he did not have a choice.
Sayyidi wa sanadi Shaikh Mufti Taqi Usmani (Allah grant him long, healthy and productive life. Amin!) replied,
یار جس حال میں رکھے وہی حال اچھا ہے
The condition that the Beloved has placed me in is the best condition for me indeed!
(That is, have complete reliance (tafweez) on Allah. He selects for the moment whatever is the best for His servant.)
