Volume 1 Letter 33
From: Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith (May his secret be sanctified)
To: Hazrat Moulana Yusuf Motala Sahib (May his lofty shadow be lengthened)
Date: 11 th Shawwal 1386/ 22 nd January 1967
After the sunnah greetings, two letters have presently arrived, one for this humble servant and the other for dearest molvi Abdur-Raheem. I will try to keep this brief as dearest Abdur-Raheem is departing and his train is arriving shortly. I wonder if you have written a letter to the madrassa or not? If you have not done so then kindly write one immediately. Upon your own departure, I had expressly told you to send a card in the beginning of Shawwal.
I have remitted 20 Rupees with dearest Abdul-Aziz; I hope they have arrived safely. If you are unable to bring the mangoes with you, then kindly arrange to have them sent with someone reliable. Bring with you only that which is convenient to do so. I do not care for mangoes myself, but since they are not in season, the people here thought they were amazing. However, there were so few that there was hardly one mango between eight persons. My family had to go without; I did put one aside for them but that too went to someone else by mistake.
I see no reason to rush back; there is no harm if you delay your return here by a few more days, you will not be returning for a whole year and the lessons here do not begin for some time. If you have not written then kindly do so.
That is all. Salaam
Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib
Dictated to Abdur-Raheem
