"Maulana Rafi'ud deen said that he had been visiting maulana Nanotvi (Qaasim Nanotvi) for 25 years and he never went there without doing the ablution (Wazuw). He found his station to be above man. That person (Nanotvi Sahib) was an angel near to Allah who had been manifested in human form". —
(Arwaah-e-Salaasah, page 220.)
It is thus written in "Arwaah-e-Salaasah" compiled by Ashraf Ali Thanvi Sahib: `'Maulana Ahmad Hasan was a great logician and thought of nobody to be his peer in this field. One day there was a lecture by the hazrat (Qaasim Nanotvi) Nanotvi and, by chance, he (Ahmad Hasan) was sitting in front of him and so he became the addressee, and (in Nanotvi Sahib's discourse) there began the rejection of the problems of logic. The discourse being over, he Ahmad Hasan Sahib) exclaimed, Allah is great; such things (which Nanotvi Sahib said) cannot be the product of any human mind. These are but the sayings of Allah".
