"When Muhammad Qasim

heard the Prophet's name he would tremble. [92] When Rashid Ahmad read the Qur'an alone at night, he would be overcome with joy at the sections on God's mercy; and he would weep and shake and appear terrified at the sections on God's wrath. [93] During Ramazan, Shaikh 'Abdu'r-Rahim would be so absorbed in devotion that he would meet no one, but spend day and night reciting the Qur'an.
