Volume 1 Letter 47
From: Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib (May his secret be sanctified)
To: Hazrat Moulana Yusuf Motala Sahib (May his lofty shadow be lengthened)
Date: 3 rd Ramadhan 1387/ 5 th December 1967 [On the card Hazrat Sheikh (May Almighty Allah have mercy on him) wrote this poem with his blessed hand]
Here, upon these lips are a hundred thousand words owing to restlessness
There, with you, a single silence in response to each one.
Below Moulana Abdur-Raheem Sahib penned the following:
After the sunnah greetings and best wishes to one another. It is with much expectation that I await the arrival of your letter each day and Hazrat more than I. Whenever there is a letter from someone with the name Yusuf, Hazrat will at once enquire, “Who, you mean our Yusuf?” Upon being informed in the negative, he would become silent. Promptly write to Hazrat with regard to your welfare, your attachment to him and express your enthusiasm, the mashaikh are especially keen to see how enthusiastic one is.
Kindly inform me with regard to the hearing on the 4 th . Presently there is no correspondence from dearest mother. I beseech you for your kindest prayers. Pass on my sunnah greetings and requests for prayers to chothi khala and other relatives.
Most contemptible of creatures
