The Key Feature in a Teacher - Punctuality .... continues..... (Part 3)

The following are some incidents regarding Hadhrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi (RA) and the importance he gave towards being punctual for Madrasah.

Incident No. 1

Hadhrat Mufti Mahmood Saahib (RA) was very particular about being on time for all his lessons. It was inconceivable that Hadhrat (RA) would be absent for any lesson. Whilst studying Bukhaari Shareef, he did not miss a single lesson from the beginning of the kitaab to the end. He did not miss even one Hadith from his asaatiza. Once, Hadhrat Sheikhul Hadeeth Saahib (RA) fell ill. Hadhrat Mufti Saahib (RA) wrote a letter to Hadhrat Sheikh (RA) seeking permission to visit, stating that by coming to Sahaaranpur from Deoband, he would be absent for one lesson only. Hadhrat Sheikhul Hadeeth Saahib (RA) replied, “One lesson is indeed very great. In my opinion, to miss out one Hadith by your ustaadh is a loss that can never be recouped.” Thus Hadhrat (RA) postponed the visit to his Sheikh.
