However, he turned his face away and gave no response. At last, I found another opportunity for third time and humbly reported him and asked him why his highness did not respond to my report. At this, his highness stood and touched my feet and after kissing his hands, he said 'I shower my life over you. I could not know your worth. Your feet are worthy to be kissed because the Saints like Baha ud Din Zakariya Multani (surname Ghaus Baha ul Haq) and Shah Rukan e Aalim come to have the honor of seeing you.' He commented this thing for amusement in such a way that I lost all courage to gasp and raise my head with shame and constriction. Then whenever people come to see him and touched his feet in honor, used to signal at me and used to say 'this is that person, to meet him, the Saints like Baha ud Din Zakariya Multani (surname Ghaus Baha ul Haq) and Shah Rukan e Aalim come'. Hence, in this way, he made me embarrassed and regretful in front of many people. At last, I fell in his feet and felt penitence that I had done a silly thing for which I seek his pardon. After this, he forgave me and he never repeated this thing again.
Hazrat Sultan Haamid writes that 'one day I enquired about the Shahadat of Hazrat Maulvi Gul from Sultan Daaya.
He said that the details of his Shahadat are quite strange. Details are like this that one day our Murshid Hazrat Maulvi Gul gathered some certain Mureedain from us and took us all at the blessed Shrine of Hazrat Sultan ul Faqar Hazrat Sultan Bahu May Allah Sanctify his Secret. He said to all of us that 'the time of my death has approached. We confide you all to this sacred tomb so that you may get the beneficence from here after us.' After this, he set out toward East and after crossing the river Chenab, he moved ahead towards the river Ravi. We all followed him on his way. When we reached the plain, he said us 'O dears! We are under Decree of Shahadat. You should all return'. We were weeping and requested him respectfully that 'O Hazrat! We also wish to be slain and Martyred along with you'. He advanced further giving no reply. We again followed him. After a while, he stopped moving and addressed us that 'O friends! Stop and go back'. Dervishes requested to remain with him till his last breath. On this occasion, his nature suddenly changed due to Jalaal and after drawing a line on earth, he said 'he, who demands his death and murder, he can cross this line and follow me'.
