‘Arif-billah Hadhrat Dr. Abdul Hayy ‘Arifi (Allah have mercy on him) used to ask this question repeatedly from those who use to attend his weekly talks on spiritual improvement (islah),
“All praise is for Allah. I appreciate your effort in taking out time from your busy schedule and attend this gathering. However, I put forward this question to you,
‘What change has happened in yourself since you started attending these gathering?’
These gatherings are meant to bring about a change in ourselves. They are not formal speeches or academic lectures.”
