Thani Ibn-e-Sirin Hadhrat Maulana Mufti Muneer Ahmad Akhoon (damat barkatuhum) said,
“Brothers, we all have our Nisbat [affiliation] with Abba-ji [Hadhrat Maulana Muhammad Yusuf Ludhyianvi (rahimullah)]. But even if nothing is gained except this Nisbat, then we should appreciate this, because this is only gained by a few few people. And if you do not appeciate, then you should know that this Nisbat can break off.
You might think we’re bayt already and thus be very happy, but if your Mamoolat [prescribed practices] were not completed, the Ta’aluq [connection] was not maintained or kamil [perfect] love with the Shaykh was not created, Muhaqiqeen Sufia-e-Ikram (rahimullah ta’ala ajmaeen) say that then the Nisbat finishes automaticly.”
