The condition of Ḥaḍrat Miyān Ji Nūr Muhammad Janjhānwi was such that when he would visit the market to shop, he would carry a moneybag. After buying something, he would place the bag in front of the shopkeeper and instruct him to take the money out and count it. He would mention that if I were to take the money out and count it, it would waste a portion of my time; time in which I could recite subḥānAllah a number of times.
Once he was walking with his moneybag when a thief snatched it from behind and ran away with it. Ḥaḍrat Miyān Ji Nūr Muhammad Janjhānwi did not even bother to look back to see who it was and where he went. Why? He thought to himself, why bother to run after him and catch him when I can engage in the remembrance of Allah? This was the mindset of these noble souls who would despise wasting even a single moment in actions which do not bring benefit in the Hereafter.
