Dear sister, I have been to Deoband three times but every time I went, I stayed at the house of Moulana Asad Madni , so my experience of staying there would be different to other sisters who wanted to go. Saharanpur, I haven't been yet but a friend of mine spent a year there. By Hadhrat shaykh, I'm assuming you mean Shaykh Zakariyah . I've not met his daughters, only his daughter in law when Moulana Talha sahab came to our house a few years ago. I have met Hadhrat Madni's wife though when I spent some time at their house years ago.
