Shaikhul Hind Moulana Mahmoodul Hasan Deobandi (rahimahullah) was a great saint and scholar of his time. He would tend to his qurbaani cow for the entire year. He would personally wash and feed the animal. The cow would also become very attached to him. When he would leave his home to deliver the lessons of Saheeh Bukhaari and other books of hadith at Darul Uloom Deoband, it would follow him right to the madrasah gate where it would sit down. When he would return at noon after lessons, it would follow him back home.

Abdur Rahman bin Mahdi (rahimahullah) narrates an incident regarding his tutor and mentor Ubaidullah bin Hasan Al-Anbari (rahimahullah), who was among the leading scholars of Basrah. He says: “Once we attended a janaazah at which I asked him a question. He answered the question but he erred in his response. Hence I politely submitted: ‘May Allah shower his mercy onto you and always keep you guided. The ruling here is something else.’” He lowered his head in thought for a moment and then said: “I retract immediately from what I told you initially, even though this retraction may seem outwardly disgraceful. To be apparently disgraced but be on the truth is far more beloved to me than being outwardly honoured but being on falsehood.” (Tahzeebut Tahzeeb vol. 7 pg. 7)

A person saw Abu Hafs Kaaghadi (rahimahullah) in a dream after his demise and enquired from him as to what had transpired? He replied: “Allah had mercy on me, forgave my sins and admitted me into paradise”. On asking him the reason for that, he answered: “When I appeared before Allah Ta’ala, the angels were commanded to count my durood as well as my sins. It turned out that my durood outnumbered my sins. Hence my Lord commanded: “O angels, let that be enough, let there be no further reckoning and take him into my Paradise”. (Al Qaulul-Badee' pg 259)

Lesson: Abundance of durood assures safety and salvation both in this world as well as the next.

Once a man from the Bani Israeel passed by a sand dune at a time when people were suffering with hunger due to drought and famine. He thought to himself: “Had I possessed food equivalent to the granules of sand in this sand dune, I would have distributed every bit of it amongst these people to relieve them of their hunger.” Allah Ta’ala sent revelation to the Nabi of that time: “Inform that man that Allah Ta’ala has acknowledged and appreciated your noble intention and has hence recorded for you the reward of spending that amount of food in charity.” (Mirqaat-ul-Mafateeh, vol.1, pg.100)
