The King Exposed

Altmash ruled Delhi. He was a disciple of Khwaja Bakhtiaruddin Kaki, may Allah Almighty have Merci upon them. At the time of his death the Shaikh left a will that his funeral prayer can be lead only by that person who has never ignored the Sunnah prayers before the Asr (late afternoon) Prayer. These units of prayer are preferable bu still optional. Nobody came out from the mourners to lead the prayers. The funeral was getting delayed and the declaration was sounded a few times. Finally the king himself came forward to lead the prayers. "My Shaikh has exposed me", said the king.
