The Mewatis who had become half Mushrik
despite being called Muslims, who celebrated many of the Mushrikeen festivals, whose villages rarely had a mosque in them, who even used to kill their newborns; suddenly, little beacons of light sprung up in the same Mewati dwellings.
Mosques were built, religious schools and madaris mushroomed, the number of huffaz exceeded hundreds, and there was a good number of qualified `ulama.
The birth of the love of Imaan extinguished the following of kufr.
The customs and traditions that had come to be a way of life for them began to be eradicated.
An experienced Mewati explained this in a very clear manner when he was asked what was happening in his area; he said,
"I don't know anything else, what I do know is some things for which we used to strive and they did not happen, are happening on their own; some things which we tried to stop with battles and great endeavour and did not stop, are being stopped on their own."
