Download PDF: [S] The Saint Transformed Him
It is mentioned that one day a certain person was playing a musical instrument and he was also walking around in a drunk stupor. This person happen to pass Hadrat Sayyiduna Uthman Heeri – may Allah be pleased with him – and out of respect for the great Saint he hid his bottle and also his musical instrument.
When Hadrat Sayyiduna Uthman Heeri – may Allah be pleased with him – came nearer, he could clearly smell the alcohol on this person. His lips were also showing clear signs of froth from his drinking. Hadrat Sayyiduna Uthman Heeri – may Allah be pleased with him – did not display any displeasure at this person but in fact, he was extremely pleased that the person had shown such respect and shame. The great Saint then took him home and ordered him to have a bath and he then placed the Sufi khirqah on him. He then made Du’a to Allah, “O Allah! I have done whatever I could do. The balance of what happens to this person rests in Your Divine Court. Please allow his heart to forget this world and allow him to make true Taubah.”
Even before he had completed the Du’a, this person had completely transformed. It was as if a new person had been created. No one could recognize the person standing in front of them. (Tadkirah Awliyah)
