Descending to the Level of People

stair_photoHazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

A true Sheikh and spiritual guide is one who comes down to the level of people and deals with them according to their position when guiding them. He does not deal with people in the manner where he expects them to come up to his level. An example to illustrate this point is that of a person who feeds meat to a suckling child. Can there be any outcome besides that of destroying the child? The suckling child will have to be suckled with milk before it reaches the point where it will be able to be fed meat. (Malfoozaat Husnul Azeez pg.66)
