Develop a river-like generosity, a sun-like bounty and an earth-like hospitality,’ Chishti exhorted, stressing one’s life could have divine significance only if one firmly rejected all material attractions.

Real happiness, according to him, lay not in accumulating money but in giving and spending it on others, helping those in need and never hurting the feelings of anyone, which was one of the two ways of exhibiting devotion – the other being prayers, fasting and the pilgrimage to Mecca.
