Hazrat Shaykh, Moulana Muhammad Yusuf Binnory (rahimahullah) had an intense dislike for fame.
He closed every door and avenue that could lead to fame to the extent that the madrasah in Karachi never even held a graduation ceremony (Jalsah).
During the issue of the Khatm Nubuwwat and the Qadiyanis (the Qadiyanis do not accept Nabi -sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam- as the final Messenger) Moulana (rahimahullah) gave a full 100 days of sacrifice [to combat this evil sect].
Here too, Moulana (rahimahullah) had the same fevour of sacrificing only for Allah Ta’ala and not to do anything for show.
(Khususi Number, pg. 451)
Dr Abdur Razzaq Iskandar (hafizahullah) writes:
Shaykh Binnory (rahimahullah) laid the foundation for Madrasah Islamia (in Karachi) himself [i.e, He was the founder] and it is due to him that the institute reached this level. However, out of humility, Hazrat Binnory (rahimahullah) disliked having the title of Principle next to his name.
(Jamale Yusuf, pg.143-144)
May Allah Ta’ala bless us all with these sublime qualities. Amin.
