Sayyidi wa sanadi Shaikh Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) said,
‘It is essential to have the intention of islah while visiting the pious to benefit spiritually.
My respected teacher Mufti Rasheed Ludhyanawi (Allah have mercy on him) one day instructed me that your father is a very pious individual (Shaikh) however to benefit from him spiritually make an intention of islah while visiting him instead of keeping the usual son-father relationship.
All praise is for Allah. After this He gave me the tawfiq to do this and the results were amazing.’
