Khilafa of Hazrat Gangohi (رحمه الله)
Hazrat Haji Imdadullah (rah) gave khilafat to Hazrat Gangohi after eight days and told him: 'Moulvy Rasheed Ahmed sahib whatever favour Allah has bestowed upon me, He has also bestowed upon you. It will be your duty to go develop that nimat and work on it.'
Hazrat Gangohi used to say: 'I was very surprised. I could not understand what nimat he was referring to, which had been granted to him and also to me. I only managed to understand and realise what it was fifteen years later.' [Tazkira e Khaleel vol 1]
It is written in 'Tazkira e Rasheed' that Hazrat Gangohi told Haji Imdadullah Saheb: 'I cannot become involved in zikr and shugl.' Hazrat Haji Saheb smiled and replied: 'That does not matter.' A mureed asked: 'Hazrat what happened after that?' Hazrat Gangohi replied: 'I became annihilated (in the efforts).'
