Steadfastness in the Face of Adversity

In this excerpt, Hazrat Shaykh ul Hadith (rah) portrays the distressful days of the partition of India and the formation of Pakistan. Amidst all the turmoil, The elders of Deoband (Hazrat Madani, Hazrat Rajpuri and Hazrat Shaykh ul Hadith rahimahumulla) gather to decide whether they will migrate to Pakistan or remain in the service of the Muslims of India. It is admirable how steadfast our elders were and how clear their focus in life was. Following is Hazrat Madani's reply as the other elders await his decision after making out their cases in front of him:

Maulana Madani listened to all this very carefully, took a long breath and said with tears streaming down: "Our scheme has failed, otherwise all this killing and destruction and this movement of whole populations would not have taken place....Now I do not stop anyone from wanting to leave. My home is in Madina...But I cannot leave my India brothers at this stage of destruction and bloodshed without guidance."
..Even more amazing than that was the courage shown by Hazrat Madani. In those dangerous times he undertook numerous tours all over India telling Muslims of the reward of remaining steadfast in the face of calamities.
