Incident Moulana Yusuf Ludhyanwi Saheb (RA) 

​I [Sheikhul Hadith Hadhrat Moulana Yusuf Motala Saheb (db)] have always repeated the scenario regarding Hadhrat Moulana Yusuf Ludhyanwi Saheb (ra) when he arrived in England, and when we were preparing the book ‘Hadhrat Sheikh [Zakariya] and His Disciples.’ 

I was reading those letters addressed to me [from Hadhrat Sheikh Zakariya], and when I got to the part where I had written to Hadhrat that, 

‘The perpetrators, who had burgled Zakariya Masjid in Bolton and had set fire to it, had all been caught!’  

I had written [details of the incident] to Hadhrat after a lengthy period, and Hadhrat had replied,

“You have expressed pleasure about the perpetrators’ arrests – this shouldn’t be the case, as this issue is very sensitive.” 

We have a tendency to celebrate that, ‘criminals have been caught!’ 

When I related this [Hadhrat Sheikh’s reply] I still remember the scenario of Moulana Yusuf Ludhyanwi Saheb (ra) clearly – he immediately stood up with his glasses and pen still in his hands […] started shouting whilst weeping,

“This statement could have only been uttered by a Qutub!” […]

We are also criminals and to what extent [?] Thieves in Namaz, thieves whilst in the state of Namaz, thieves in all the gatherings [Majlis], thieves whilst sitting inside the Masjid, thieves with our gazes – our habits are filled with criminal traits!
