To: Hazrat Moulana Yusuf Motala Sahib (May his lofty shadow be lengthened)
Date: 19 th Sha'ban 1387/21 st November 1967
After the sunnah greetings, I was especially pleased to receive your letter following my return from Mewat; I had been waiting eagerly to receive the same. I express my thanks to Allah that you are well again. May almighty Allah by way of his grace and bounty grant you a complete and expeditious recovery. Further, I was delighted at the ease with which your examinations were concluded, may almighty Allah through His Grace and bounty accord you abounding success. Upon reading your card, I was disturbed to learn of the circumstances at home, may almighty Allah have mercy. Last night I requested Molvi In'am Sahib for prayers.
That is all. Salaam
Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib
Dictated to Abdur-Raheem
19 th Sha'ban 1387
From: Worthless Abdur-Raheem
After the sunnah greeting, best of wishes to one another. This worthless-one along with molvi Ahmed sahib wrote to you in reference to your reservation, it should have been with you before now. To date, I am still unapprised as to the status of your reservation, have you made one or not? If you have not done so hitherto, then molvi Ahmed sahib has made one for Saturday 25th November from Dehra, he can make one for you. If there are no reservations available then purchase a three and a half Rupee ticket.
That is all. Salaam.
I have with me one of your books, which I enclose herewith, together with 20 Rupees for a ticket. My concern over your health has left me perturbed; moreover, I have not managed to focus at all for the duration of my stay here. Last night my anxiety increased to the point where I wanted to depart immediately, but subsequently changed my mind. Desirous and anticipant of your pious prayers.
That is all, Salaam
