Volume1 Letter 58
From: Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib (May his secret be sanctified)
To: Hazrat Moulana Yusuf Motala Sahib (May Allah lengthen his lofty shadow)
Date: 8th Zi’ Q’aada 1387/ 17th February 1968
After the sunnah greetings, your letter arrived in today’s post. I fail to appreciate the value in using an envelope for such trivial matters. It was certainly a protracted letter but nothing of any substance, I did not have it read to me with the notion that it might be something important and put it in my pocket. Molvi Ismail has sent your results together with your certificate; I expect they will be with you today. I am deeply concerned about the weak constitution of your father. May Almighty Allah through his infinite bounty and kindness accord him a complete and abiding recovery and at the appointed time may he grant this useless one and him a gracious death. I have been conversant with your father’s condition which you have written about for some days now, may Almighty Allah have mercy.
The letters Mufti Aziz-ur-Rahman returned along with the certificate have been sent by registered post. I could not understand a single line from the letter Abdur-Raheem sent, I am returning that along with it. With regards your return here, I have written on countless occasions that in consideration for your wellbeing it is my opinion not to come here. It has been observed on many occasions that the climate here is not suited to you. As soon as you arrive you fall ill and consequently causes me great distress. It is also the opinion with regards Abdur-Raheem that he should complete the remaining half year of ( )
Communicate my sunnah greetings to your father and visit him on my behalf. Forward my sunnah greetings to dear Abdur-Raheem, Gulam Muhammad and their respective wives and to your Khalas. I await with much anticipation for news of receipt of the certificate. Your results were also shown to me.
That is all, Salaam
Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib
Dictated to Muhammad Ismail
Thursday evening 8th Zi’ Q’aada
From this worthless one Salaam to you both
