Implications of Displeasing a Friend of Allah Almighty

A person invited the wrath of Maulana Rashid Ahmed Gangohi. His brother got worried. He approached Maulana Fazlur Rehman Ganj Muradabadi for supplications. "Where do you come from?", the Maulana asked. "Deoband", was the reply. "Why did you not go to Gangoh, it is nearer to your place?". "I am associated with you so I thought I shall ask you for the supplications". "Even if all the Friends of Allah supplicate for your brother it'll have no effect-unless Maulana Gangohi is pleased". Ultimately the brother went to Gangoh and approached Maulana Rashid Ahmed with apologies and the matter got settled.
