The sister of Qadi Zadah Rumi

The sister of Qadi Zadah Rumi

 

He was a great ‘alim. After acquiring knowledge from the ‘ulama of Rum, he had a desire to go abroad in order to further his studies. He began making preparations for the journey secretly. His sister came to know about his plans so she took out a considerable amount of her jewellery and concealed it with her brother’s goods and did not inform him about it.

Lesson: How great this woman was. She had no desire for name and fame. All she wanted was that knowledge should exist. O women! There is great reward in helping to ensure that knowledge exists. Help the different madaris in whatever way you can.
