Baba Fareed ud Deen Masud Ganjshakar (Allah have mercy on him) usually avoided writing letters of recommendation. However, a person insisted repeatedly.
So Baba sahib wrote,
‘I refer his mater first to Allah and then to you. If you will grant anything to him, the real Giver is Allah and you will get credit for it. If you do not give him anything, the real preventer is Allah and you are helpless in this matter. ‘
