Hakim al-Ummat Hadhrat Mawlana Ashraf ‘Ali Thanawi (rahimahullah) relates: 

Hadhrat Haji [Imdadullah Muhajir-e-Makki] sahib would treat Hadhrat [Mawlana Rashid Ahmad] Gangohi with great respect, similar to how one treats a shaykh. Once, in front of me, someone presented Hadhrat Haji sahib with a turban that was given to him by Hadhrat Gangohi. Hadhrat Haji sahib touched it with his eyes, placed it on his head and said, ‘This is the tabarruk (a blessed relic) of Mawlana [Rashid Ahmad Gangohi]’. 

Ma’arif al-Akabir, p. 162 (Lahore: Idarah Islamiat, 1995), quoting from Al-Kalam al-Hasan, p.29
