SLEEP AND STROLL AFTER SUPPER

SLEEP AND STROLL AFTER SUPPER

Our Saint was very punctual in his habits. He would pick the teeth after supper, take a stroll in the bed room which was supposed to be forty steps as a sign of health, but with much difficulty cover twelve steps and would be down.

Even his sleep in reality was not a sleep. His every action was never personal but to please other. Once our Saint was not keeping well. Hakim Abdul Aziz Saheb Lucknowi attended on him and recovered very quickly. But Hakim Mamdu on seeing our Saint always sleeping on the right side suggest that he should sleep on the left side for some time for health’s sake. Our Saint would lie on the only left side for only a minute sit up and then change to the right side but his backed never touched the ground. The reason being he had already forfeited rest and comfort for love of God. As such his lying posture of resting on the right shoulder without pillow was not in reality a rest and his back never touched the floor.

Regarding his height he was neither too tall nor too short but he carried himself with such a bearing that all assembled recognized his grandeur.

Our Saint remained a life-long celibate and was not keen to saddle the responsibility of being a family man. The author of his biography discusses in detail the pros and cons of being a celibate quoting the authorities and justification for his determination to remain a confirmed celibate, to concentrate his attention to achieve the ultimate goal of merging him self with the Infinite.

The pages of history have recorded the names of eminent and exalted personalities of spiritual attainment who preferred to remain celibate as marriage and the responsibility of bringing up children would have come in their way of life they were wedded. The whole world is aware of their purity of life, their efforts to guide common people to travel on the right path of rectitude.

As our Saint was a luminary of highest spiritual exaltation and a true celibate he spent his whole life time as an ascetic and had no inclination to become a family man. He spent his whole life time as a globe trotter mystic serving his connection with Mundane affairs.,

In fact his mode of dress and facial features resembles the Holy Prophet Jesus Christ; was endowed and blessed with those sterling qualities of head and heart, peculiar specialities of that sublime and high prophet about whom our Holy Prophet Muhammad referred as “Holy Ghost”.From his state of affair and happening it is clear that he is a true descendent of the family of our Holy Prophet and from his gesture, movements, precepts and practice companion.
