Once, on stage, Hazrat Asraf Ali Thanwi, may Allah Almighty fill his tomb with light, asked that pray to Allah Almighty to provide me a place among the shoes of the dwellers of the heaven (jennah). Another Shaikh present at the occasion said that you have taken the cake-I can't ask for a lower thing like a place in the toilet for there are no toilets in the heaven.
(If our beloved Prophet, may Peace and Blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him, was so humble in his prayers how can, we so dirty people, be sure of our results? Hence the above sayings of the Elders.)
