To: Hazrat Moulana Abdur-Raheem Motala Sahib (May Allah lengthen his lofty shadow)
Date: Approx. Zi Q’aada/Zi Hijja 1387/Corresponding to February/March 1967
Honourable brother Abdur-Raheem Sahib may your spiritual grace spread forth, after the sunnah greetings, owing to my foolishness I forgot to put the amulet in the envelope, in case you wrote to Hazrat informing that someone had taken the amulet out en route. I was pleased to hear news of the rains; here it is heat is searing.
The newspapers were forwarded the day before yesterday, inshallah they should be with you by now; there were about six or seven. ( ). He commenced it around the 22nd; it should have started by now.
The results that are available for this lowly one are as follows:
Bukhari 20 Muslim 20 Abu Dawood 20
Nisai 19 Tahawi 18
The results for the Tirmidhi are not yet known. Yet again I may possibly hold the topmost results in the class. Pray that Almighty Allah grant me relief from the iniquity of the lower self and confer his good pleasure and adoration ( ).
Written below is the Durood Shareef that Hazrat Sheikh (May his lofty shadow be lengthened) recites, the reason I have noted it down is that perchance I saw the Durood Shareef you had which you attributed to Hazrat. I have scrutinised the text with Hazrat on a couple of occasions.
That is all Yusuf
Pass on my sunnah greetings to all the khalas, phuphees, brothers and sisters. In particular communicate my Salaam and request for prayers to chothi khala, sister-in-law and her mother.
