Quaid's Financial Condition

ایمیل Print PDF

Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini belonged to a respected middle class family. As a student, Shaheed Quaid lived very modestly and as a teacher in Para Chinar his modesty increased as he became more public.After becoming Quaid, his responsibilities increased immensely. In the early days, his living quarters in Peshawar consisted of three rooms: one office, one room for guests and one for his family; he managed the office with only two volunteer workers.

When Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini's friend advised him to move to some other house, as this little room is not sufficient for children's upbringing, Shaheed Quaid replied that he didn't have money to pay rent for a bigger house. From Madressah his salary continued to come and he had strictly instructed his wife to manage household expenses in this. Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini never used anything from the office for personal means and considered every thing as property of the Imam (AJ). He used to advise his colleagues to do justice while using office material and money.
After one year of assuming office as Quaid, momineen from Dubai sent a car for him for his office use. He strictly instructed his office staff to only use this car for office purposes only. Once his very close relative took the car for some personal use. When Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini heard that, his face changed but kept quite until his relative returned. When he came back Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini said:

"My brother, you also wanted me to push to the flames of hell!".

Nobody dared to touch the car again for personal use.

Shaheed Quaid's relatives from Para Chinar once came to visit to meet his family. The relatives had presumed that their financial position might have improved but were surprised to see the same living conditions. One of the relatives asked Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini's wife about that and she told them that people have sent expensive carpets, utensils, cloths and different items as gifts but Allama Saheb, after receiving these gifts, gave it to the dowries of poor girls.

After Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini's martyrdom, his family went to Iran for some days and gave the keys of their house to a family friend instructing them that care should be taken to protect the household items. After some days they decided to take the valuable and expensive items of Shaheed Quaid's home to their own home for safekeeping, but were astonished and stunned to see following household items:

Some mats, two thermoses, some cups of different colors, four glasses, one almirah, one very old carpet piece, one chair, one table, one radio, one brief case, three big pots, four steel plates, some spoons, four shalwar kameez suits of Shaheed Quaid, four slippers, two suitcases (small), one suitcase (big) and four simple beddings. The friends wept after witnessing the poverty in the home of Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini while the adjacent office had air conditioner, refrigerator and carpets but not his home.
