A friend of mine whose field of study was different than mine was in need of some software which Professor Shahriyārī had. He asked me if Professor Shahriyārī would give him the software. I told him that you will not be turned down, or if you are, you will be given a convincing reason for it. He had gone and asked the professor, who had given him the software without hesitation. Unlike certain people, Professor Shahriyārī was not miserly and shared the wealth of his knowledge with everyone.
