Correcting Faith is important..

Hazrat Khwaja Nizamudeen Auliya (r.a) who was a master in the Arabic language was taught a dua by Hazrat Baba Farid Ganj-e-Shakar (r.a) that contained linguistic errors in the Arabic. Khwaja Nizamudeen Auliya (r.a) used to recite the dua as taught to him with the errors despite the number of scholars pointing out the errors to him. One day Khwaja Nizamudeen Auliya (r.a) taught this dua to one of his disciple and the disciple said “O my spiritual master there are a number of errors in the Arabic pronunciation of this dua”. Khwaja Nizamudeen Auliya (r.a) replied “There maybe error in the language but definitely there is no error in my faith in Hazrat Baba Farid Ganj-e-Shakar’s (r.a) words, correcting the tongue is one thing and correcting your faith is something else.”
