After this, he gave this excuse that there is a tree (Zizyphus vulgaris) of jujube berry (Ber) in his house. Its Ber are quite tasty and liked much by him. In the city of Braily, those Ber will not be available. The English could not still understand what he had in heart. He proposed that Ber will can be transported to Braily from the city of Raampur and he will be able to eat Ber in Braily without problem. Maulana added another excuse that his students, who take his lessons in Raampur, their education will suffer and he will not be able to serve them. The mind of the English was still unable to reach the depth of the excuse. He said that he will also entitle those students with stipends so that they might be able to go Braily and continue their studies through him and finish their course. At last, this practical and Muttaqee Aalim fired that arrow of his Quiver, for which the English had no solution. Maulana said that 'you may be correct but what Answer I will give to Allah Almighty if he will take money in lieu of education'. Here the Material Occupant of Hindustan surrendered before single blow of the behavior and conduct (and ethics) and spiritual weapon of a fair Aalim and a true Muslim Aalim coined the heart of an Outsider with the highest character of Islam and did his duty in for the shine of Islam.
Let this sublime morality and lofty stature be compared with the wisdom-selling of this age that our well-known and great Ulema of time and mouthpiece scholars have listed their potency and intelligence in knowledge for sale that they will sell it to him who will offer more. If some Islamic Institute is paying 100 whereas some Christian, Jewish, Hindu or Sikh Institution has offered 105, they will prefer to sell to the later even without the consideration of the suitability of the subject and the match of their aptitude. A person of Education Department is willingly ready to get transferred to Departments of Police, CID or some non-Muslim Political Department of Army. A young Muslim poet, whose Inspiring Islamic poems can rouse and boil the storm of Islamic Solidarity and National Fervor in the bosoms of the Muslim youth, it is very ordinary thing that in the near future, he is seen writing poems of similar passion inviting recruitments in Army and his poems deliver the youth under the emblem of Idol for fighting and for giving life in the warfare.

Today, Islam and Deen look miserable and worthless because of the reasons that the Bey-Amal Ulema (who do not practice the religion in its true spirit) have become its flag-bearers and propagandists. Their intention is unclear and their quest and aim is worldly avarice, greed and political Portfolios. Their advices fall flat. Although they try to make their speeches garnished with exaggeration, accounts of interesting incidents, stories and fascinating songs, yet these lack in any attraction and interest. Had their prime aim and objective the pleasure of Allah Almighty and the propagation of the Deen, they should surely have been the favorites and the desired ones near both the Creator and the creation. That is why, the respect and esteem of the Mardaan of Lord, that is, the Aulia-Allah remains alive in their life as well as after their death. Their dust is kissed and people fall on their shrines like moths and the (efficacious) effectiveness of their writings and sayings lasts till the Day of Doom and people give the utmost respect and follow their teachings. The reason is, that with the Holy Messengers (of Allah) Alaihimus-Salaam and the Kaamil Aulia Rahmatu-Allah Ta'ala Alaihim is the kernel and marrow of the Ilm whereas with the Bey-Amal Ulema posses just the dry and tasteless skin. Therefore, side by side the religious education in schools, there should be a department of the Ilm of Spirituality and Tasawvuf for which the services of the real Spiritual Ulema and the Kaamil Faqeers should be sought. The Ilm-of-Outward (Outwardly Ilm) of Shariyat and the vocational Ilm of customs can be acquired through the Ulema of the Outward in the Institutions but the Ilm of Tasdeeq (acknowledgement) and the Ilm of Hidayat cannot be acquired through the hidden treasures of written books and the speeches of the Outwardly professional Ulema but instead, it propagates from the bosoms of the Aamileen Ulema and the Kaamil Faqeers to other bosoms through the means of the gaze (Nazar) and Tawajuh. Allah Almighty had not only granted His Messengers Alaihimus-Salaam and the Kaamil Aulia Rahmatu-Allah Ta'ala Alaihim the verbal knowledge, fables, stories and the Qeel-O-Qaal but He had also granted and blessed them the Noor of Prophecy and Ilhaam, Spiritual Power, Marvels and Karamaat and the Ilm of Taskheer and Dawaat and He had given them sovereignty over the Jinn, Angels and Spirits by virtue of the Ilm of Taskheeraat and the Haziraat.
