THE PIETY OF HAZRAT HAMDOON QASSAAR RAHMATULLAHI ALAYH
- Hadhrat Hamdoon Qassaar (Rahmatullah alayh) was among the Auliya of the Salafus Saaliheen. He was the Mureed of Hadhrat Turaab Bakhshi (Rahmatullah alayh). He was the Shaikh of Hadhrat Abdullah Mubaarak (Rahmatullah alayh), The people of his era used to revile him considerably, for they could not understand his talks pertaining to spiritual subtleties. But, the Auliya had the highest regard for him.
- One day he visited a sick friend who was in his maradhul maut (last illness). The moment the friend died, Hadhrat Hamdoon (Rahmatullah alayh) extinguished the lantern. The people who were present asked in surprise for the reason. He said: “As long as he was alive, the lantern and the oil in it belonged to him. The moment he died, the ownership of his heirs was established. It is therefore not permissible to use the property of the heirs.”
