“The story of the Rohilla illustrates Sai Baba’s all embracing love. One Rohilla, tall and well-built, strong as a bull, came to Shirdi, wearing a long Kafni (robe) and was enamoured of Sai, who stayed there. Day and night, he used to recite, in a loud and harsh tone Kalma (verses from Holy Koran) and shout “ALLAH HO AKBAR” (God is Great). Most people of Shirdi, were working in their fields by day and when they returned to their homes at night, they were welcomed with the Rohilla’s harsh cries and shouts. They could get no sleep and felt much trouble and inconvenience. They suffered this nuisance for some days in silence, and when they could stand it no longer, they approached Baba and requested Him to check the Rohilla and stop the nuisance. Baba did not attend to their complaint. On the contrary, Baba took the villagers to task, and asked them to mind their own business. He said to them that the Rohilla had got a very bad wife, who tried to trouble the Rohilla and Himself; but hearing the Rohilla’s prayers, she dare not enter and they were at peace.
In fact, the Rohilla had no wife and by his wife Baba meant DURBUDDHI, i.e. evil thoughts. As Baba liked prayers and cries to God better than anything else, He took the side of the Rohilla, and asked the villagers to wait and suffer the nuisance, which would abate in due course.”
