‘A Incident reflects the importance of Adab (Respect) when Sayyidi Sultan Ul Awliyaa Shaykh Muhammad Mohsin Munawar Yousafi Al Naqshbandi holding the Gathering of Giyarween Sharif’
Once a Carpenter was called to carry out some wood work at the blessed house of Sayyidi Shaykh. It was annual ‘Giyarween Sharif Gathering’ on the day carpenter was working. One of the devotee – Rashid Mohsini relates that he asked carpenter not to operate the machine as the machine makes noise and will create disturbance during the function. Rashid Mohsini told carpenter that he could finish rest of his work later as the Gathering is about to begin. However the carpenter replied that he wants to finish his work now so he cannot stop.
As the Giyarween Sharif Function started with the recitation of the Holy Quran, the carpenter once again started his machine but due to the Adab (Respect) of Sayyidi Shaykh that He was physically present in Annual Giyarween Sharif the electricity got powered off. After a little while the electric power resumed, as soon as carpenter started his machine again the electricity got cut off once again. Then the electricity did not resumed at all during the entire duration of the function. Furthermore, the electricity resumed when the carpenter came to Sayyidi Shaykh upon the completion of the gathering and asked for forgiveness of his mistake.
There is no doubt when any person visit the Dergha of Awliyaa Allah for whatever reason he/she shall remain in the state of Adab (respect). There will be some clues from someone’s saying or some incident which makes the person to think, so, he/she shall suddenly act to remain in the state of Adab (Respect). This was only one of the happened that was mentioned by the devotee of Sayyidi Shaykh but there are hundreds of such incidents occurred with devotees of Sayyidi Shaykh which reflects the Adab (respect) is must when we present ourselves to Sultan Ul Awliyaa Shaykh Muhammad Mohsin Munawar Yousafi Al Naqshbandi.
There is a Punjabi SufiPoet that Sayyidi Shaykh often recite to His devotees:
“Pehli manzil adab ishq di bina adab muraad na pawain,
Bay adban di basti andar kadi tahndi hawa na aawai”
English Translation: First task is respect in divine love, without respect target is unachievable,
Disrespect ones never gets the breeze of Divine desire
