Looking after guests’ needs at Langar Khana


“It should be stressed to the person in charge of the Langar Khana to bear in mind everyone’s needs. However, since he is one man with a multitude of tasks, it is possible he might overlook something. Therefore, someone else should remind him. Upon seeing someone’s dirty clothes, one should not refrain from serving them due to their humble state, because all guests are alike, and for those who are new or unfamiliar, it is our duty to consider their every need. Sometimes someone does not know the location of the restroom, causing them great discomfort. Therefore, it is crucial to be highly attentive to guests’ needs. I am often ill, so I am excused. However, for those appointed for such tasks, it is their responsibility to prevent any kind of complaint.”

(Al Hakam, 24 November 1904, pp. 1-2; Malfuzat, Vol. 4, p. 170)
