Overheard, Lawfully

(Painful, as it is, it nevertheless must be told.) This happened many years back. Somebody died away from home. This was to be conveyed to Hazrat Muhi-us-Sunnah (RA). But the people knew that if he came to know of the death he would advice, and that too firmly, burial at the same place. They consulted a Scholar. This Scholar is of considerable repute. He advised that start on your way with the dead body and then inform him (Muhi-us-Sunnah (RA)) in the middle of the journey.

This how we act.

(Not a saying. The incident was narrated by a person during a journey.)
