” I met Hadrat Maulānā ‛Abdullāh Sāhib Kāpaudrī rahimahullāh for the first time in 1986 at Dār al-‛Ulūm Bury. My father rahimahullāh and Hadrat Maulānā knew each other since a long time through their association with Majlis Khuddām ad-Dīn, a wellknown organization in Gujarat. Based on this, he used to visit our village, Bhūryā, periodically. And thus, I heard his name from my father since childhood. Thereafter I would repeatedly hear about him due to his affiliation with the famous institution of learning in Gujarat, Dār al-‛Ulūm Falāh-e-Dārayn. The seed of respect and love for Hadrat Maulānā was thus planted in my heart very early in my life. I imagined him to be a huge, intimidating and frightening person. But when I met him, I found him to be the complete opposite. Despite his greatness, he was of a most simple temperament. There was no inkling or taint of formalities in him. ”
