The New Muslim

At the end of a recent sitting (majlis) a new Muslim from eastern part of the country was presented to Hazrat Shaikh (DB). Hazrat Shaikh renewed his Word (kalima). It was desired that he should be given a new name. Hazrat Shaikh (DB) asked his old name and proposed a name with the similar meaning. The person was not following Urdu that well. Hazrat Shaikh (DB) made very brief, precise and simple instructions for him. "Obey One, obey Him only."
