Honoring the Guest

On one occasion, due to inclement weather, meat could not be delivered to Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih). Coincidentally, Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) was expecting guests regarding whom Hazrat Moulana (rahmatullahi ‘alaihi) knew that they liked meat. Moulana (rahimahullah) was thus saddened that he would not be able to serve meat to these guests on that occasion.

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) then mentioned, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in a Hadith:

من كان يؤمن بالله واليوم الآخر فليكرم ضيفه

‘He who believes in Allah Ta‘ala and the last day should honor his guest.’”

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) thereafter said, “When we are commanded to honor the guest, then how much more deserving of honor are the guests of Allah Ta‘ala and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who have come to us to learn deen.” (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 18-19)
