[Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani relates regarding Ml. Asghar Hussain (also known as Miya Sahib),]
His house and living quarters were made of mud. Every year, during the rainy seasons, the plastering of the house was inevitable. This cost significant amount of time and money. Once, my father (Mufti Shafi Usmani) said to Miya Sahib, “Sir! The amount it cost to plaster the house yearly, if you built a brick house the amount will be recouped in two to three years and you will be forever free of this labour”.
