I Seek Not Payment for My Religion

Once Maulana Fateh Mohammed Jalandhari, may Allah Almighty grant him Peace, was invited for a talk on religion in Peshawar. After the talk the organizers asked him to proceed for meal. He said that I came to give a talk-not to take a meal. Some body suggested that these are Pathans and will be infuriated if their invitation to food is rejected. "This Maulvi does not prey upon chapatis" he said. "Abdul Rehman start the vehicle" he further said to his son and left the place.
