Volume 1 Letter 48
From: Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib (May his secret be sanctified)
To: Hazrat Moulana Yusuf Motala Sahib (May his lofty shadow be lengthened)
Date: 6 th Ramadhan 1387/8 th December 1967
After the sunnah greeting, it is with much anticipation that your letter is presently received. You may have deduced how much, from the considerable amount of letters written during Ramadhan. I am delighted that there is harmony again. My attention was present there before now, and dearest Abdur-Raheem was also intrinsically diffusing his light, but currently there is peace because of your blessed presence. Henceforth, may almighty Allah maintain peace and security.
Emphasise to the people in respect to the abundant recitation of Istighfar and Durood Shareef. I continue to pray sincerely on behalf of the injured and for the people to relent unto Allah, may almighty Allah grant me the same. I am grateful that you bear in mind poor-folk like us. In addition, I am truly saddened that after residing here throughout most of the year, you departed prior to Ramadhan, and this has occurred for the past two consecutive years, but there is no alternative other than what is foreordained. Further, illness is a legitimate reason; under no circumstance are you to attempt a complete daily recital of the Qur'an, your temperament is not suited to it. Only attempt that which you are able to endure. I have penned a myriad of poems to you; during Ramadhan alone, I wrote you an innumerable array of verses.
That is all. Salaam
Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib
Dictated to Abdur-Raheem
6 th Ramadhan 1387
From: Moulana Abdur-Raheem Sahib Motala
My honourable brother
After the sunnah greeting and best wishes to one another. Your letter arrived yesterday; through which I was able to determine the current state of affairs. May the people be accorded a complete, expeditious, and enduring recovery. If Hafiz Qasim has been released, kindly convey my sunnah greetings to him. When those people perpetrated such a serious assault, was there any voice of protestation? Were there no ramifications at all?
