It is obligatory to render thanks to Allah Most high if you are one of those who get sleep peacefully. A person came and said that give me medicine, I am not getting sleep. (Hazrat Shaikh (DB) is a physician of Greek medicine.) Once it so happened that Hazrat Thanwi (NM) did not get sleep for eleven nights. We shall not be able to go through it for so long. Some Associates and other seniors came and asked for delivering some admonitions. He said that I have not slept for eleven nights. Pray for my sleep. They prayed and after some time he went to sleep. He woke up after half an hour. I have slept a lot, he said. Then he made vary effective sermon.
