Once, a group of students from Darul Uloom Deoband had come to Nizaamuddeen to spend some time in the path of Allah Ta‘ala. In regard to these students, Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) mentioned the following advice to his attendant:
These students who have come here to spend time are an amaanat of Allah Ta‘ala and a gift sent to us. You should value this gift and show appreciation to Allah Ta‘ala for it. They have come for a short while, hence ensure that their time is spent correctly and is not wasted in the least.
