A man was a regular in the sitting (majlis) of a Shaikh. After sometime the person stopped coming to the sittings. Shaikh saw him, one day, on the way. "Have you got promotion?" "Yes, yes, I have become a Professor by the acceptance of your supplications." "I realized that," said the Shaikh. "How?", the person asked. "Well you were so regular in the sittings when you needed the supplications and then you stopped. It meant only one thing. You must have got the promotion." On this the person got a bit embarrassed.
