From: Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib

Date: 3rd Zi’ Q’aada 1387/ 12th February 1968
Dearest Molvi Yusuf, after the sunnah greetings, Molvi Ismail has just handed me your letter, you neglect to acknowledge receipt of any of my letters. I am extremely worried and concerned about the deteriorating condition of your father. At this time it is vital that you look after him as much as possible and not be reluctant in any way. I am delighted to hear the good-news of your own recuperation. May Almighty Allah keep you hale and hearty always, but the obstacle is the climate here, it is not suited to you at all, is there a solution.
You write constantly with regards feeling deprived of my prayers, well in your heart of hearts you know otherwise and my letters bear testimony to this. This useless one prays from the heart that the Almighty Allah through his grace and bounty grant you and this sinner relief from all physical and spiritual maladies. I incessantly pray with regards the trials there and I will continue to do so. May Almighty Allah assist you. Emphasise to the indicted recitation of istighfar, durood and verses of the Quraan, and ask dear Abdur-Raheem to do likewise.
Sunnah greetings to dearest Abdur-Raheem:
I had the reply to your abstruse letter written last night. I requested Molvi Naseeruddin with regards the afternoon meal, he has granted permission for your wife to stay at his residence, therefore gladly bring her along.
Mufti Aziz-ur-Rahman sent me an envelope containing your letters, he requested in writing to clarify your address and have them sent to you. I have just been informed by way of Molvi Ismail rather he personally informed me he will take it upon himself to send dear Yusuf’s certificate via registered post; consequently I am handing over the envelope to his custody. Furthermore in yesterday’s letter there was a note and instructions that it be sent to Mufti Aziz-ur-Rahman, It was too arduous to comprehend hence I am returning it with them.
That is all, Salaam
Dictated to Ismail 3rd Zi’ Q’aada 1387
