Dedicated to the `ulema for safeguarding and transmitting the teachings of our Noble Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) – in specific to my akabir, my main inspirations in life, such as Maulana Ashraf `Ali Thanawi, Maulana Gangohi, Maulana Nanotwi, Maulana Khalil, Imam Zafar `Uthmani, and others (May Allah be pleased with them all) -; to my murshid wal sayyidi who took me by the hand and allowed me to take the first few steps on this long spiritual journey to Allah, always treating me like a son; to my ustaadh and beloved Shaykh Faraz Rabbani for always being there to assist me in my talab al `ilm; to my parents and family for always supporting me in the quest for religious knowledge and not forcing me to become a doctor; to all of my friends and loved ones (you know who you are) without whom life would seem empty and lonely, and through whom I learnt much; to all the readers for visiting this blog, commenting, and encouraging, although it is but a mere attempt by a worthless sinner to share the very little knowledge he has.
Lastly to the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and grant him peace), without whose nur we would still be engulfed and drowning in the darkness of ignorance, whose radiance shattered all falsehood, whose incomprehensible stature and rank formulated the basis and reason for the existence of all things. May Allah send countless blessings upon him, his family, and companions, and may he allow us to drink from his noble hand at al kawthar and see a glimpse of his face – looking at which is worth more than the universe and all that is within it, even if for a micro-second.
“He has triumphed who ascribes himself to him!
-Not that he needs such following,
For he is not in need of creation at all,
While they all need him without exception.
He belongs to Allah alone, Whose purified servant he is,
As his attributes and names have made manifest;
And every single favor in creation comes from Allah
To him, and from him to everything else.” (Qadhi Nabhani)
