Date: 20 th Safar 1385/ 19 th June 1965
After the sunnah greeting, I have presently received your express delivered card, it was quite unnecessary given that in Saharanpur these arrive later than regular mail. I was delighted to hear of your recovery, however, do not be hasty with your return back here until you have fully convalesced from your illness, in case of a relapse.
It is very warm here, there has been no rain whatsoever and as a result there is a hot wind blowing. I am glad you asked about Ihya-ul-Uloom; kindly do not bring it on my account as I already have one and I have no need of another, this worthless-one has the book and the explanatory notes. If at all possible, kindly communicate my sunnah greetings to your parents.
That is all, Salaam
Muhammad Zakariya Saharanpur
Dictated to Ihsaan 20 th Safar 1385
