MGA had a team working with him day and night. When Maulvi Abdul Karim Sialkoti suddenly died in 1905, MGA got worried. There is a story from this era wherein the wives of Maulvi Abdul Karim Sialkoti competed for MGA’s attention and love, they both contended that their husband was nearer and dearer to MGA.

Some time after the death of Maulawi ‘Abdul Karimra, Maulawi Nur-ud-Dinra happened to fall ill.
The Promised Messiahas visited him every day, and on one occasion busied himself with preparing some medicine for him. Hadrat Ummul Mu’minin ra sensing his anxiety and seeking to comfort him observed:
“””Maulawi Burhanuddinra has passed away, Maulawi ‘Abdul Karimra has died; may Allah, of His mercy, restore Maulawi Sahibra speedily to health; whereupon the Promised Messiahas affirmed: “This one is the equal of a thousand ‘Abdul Karims.”””
Wherein the wives ofd Nooruddin and Abdul Karim competed
On one occasion Maulawi ‘Abdul Karim’sra wife and Maulawi Nur-ud-Din’sra wife each contended that her husband was the favourite of the Promised Messiahas. They invited his wife, Hadrat Ummul Mu’mininra, to pronounce on the question. She said there was no difficulty, the question could be settled in a trice. She approached the Promised Messiahas and began: “Your dearest companion …” He interrupted her and enquired in an agitated tone: “Is anything the
matter with Maulawi Nur-ud-Din?”
