Volume 1 Letter 99

Hazrat: Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib (May his secret be sanctified)

To: Al-Haj Muhammad Yakub Sahib, Bombay

Date: 3rd Ramadhan 1388/23rd November 1968

Most honourable and gracious Muhammad Yakub sahib, may your effulgence become far-reaching.

After the sunnah greeting, I have been expecting your letter since yesterday morning, it has not arrived today on Monday. The following letter is intended for dearest Abdur-Raheem; however, as I do not know his address, I thought perhaps you might know where he is headed. If he is visiting Surat Hospital then you will know the address, kindly cut out the Bombay address replacing it with the correct address, and mail it.

Haji Ahmed Zamzami has been visiting for a number of days, I believe he is departing for Delhi on Thursday; he has a seat reserved for Bombay. Communicate my sunnah greetings to Haji Dost Muhammad Sahib among other friends. My Meccan friends, amongst them Sufi Iqbal, Brother Yahya, Hafiz Abdul Sattar as well as friends from Raiwand are here at present. On completion of this letter, I received your correspondence written Saturday. I trust the ship will make port today at nine.

That is all. Salaam

To: Moulana Abdur-Raheem Sahib

Date: 3rd Ramadhan 1388/ 23rd November 1968

After the sunnah greeting, as per routine I awoke yesterday on the morning of Sunday 24th November at 9 o’clock and I have been awaiting your letter ever since. I did not get much sleep last night; though no apparent reason comes to mind for this. I have suffered incessantly with a temperature over the last couple of days but it was only at night that it affected my sleep. Nevertheless, it is now 12 o’clock Monday 25th and no sign of any correspondence as yet.

I am uncertain whether to write to your Bombay or home address, I do not know the address of the hospital in Surat. I decided to write one card each to the Bombay and home address. No moon was sighted Thursday night; consequently the first of Ramadhan here will be Saturday. However, Qadhi Abdul-Qadir Sahib and Brother Abdul-Wahhab Sahib arrived yesterday. The stated that back home first Ramadhan will be Friday and moon sighting has been confirmed in Karachi and the surrounding area.

That is all. Salaam

30th Sha’ban 1388

Upon completing the letter, I took receipt of dearest Yusuf’s letter from Dubai; I was quite worried the last couple of days. I anxiously await news as regards dearest Muhammad’s health, God willing he has convalesced. If you have not departed yet, then kindly express my sunnah greeting. I received an envelope from dearest Yusuf’s wife in today’s mail, which I have kept situate by. If the stay in the Surat hospital is protracted then I can forward the same on ascertaining the address. 

I have repeatedly penned in all letters that good medical treatment is of the essence, you do not have permission to return to Saharanpur until such time that the treatment is complete. It is bitterly cold here and the medical facilities are inadequate. To reiterate, do not attempt to return until some measure of wellbeing is attained.

That is all. Salaam

I received your letter from Friday. Again, do not rush back with dearest Yusuf.
