The son of Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani (ra) had just finished his studies, came to the khanqah and delivered a great lecture. It covered every aspect of the subject and was quite in depth. He left the mimbar and then came his father. His father (ra) sat on the mimbar and simply said, "this morning I set out a cup of milk for sahoor, but a cat came and drank the milk, the will of Allah swt was dominant, what He willed surely occured." The audiance was in tears, moved - the simple words penetrated every heart and the power of Allah swt was impressed on everyones minds. The talk continued on to more tawhid issues.
Our buzrugh have such nur in their words that their simple statements change the lives of people and are forever impressed on their minds.
