Ameer Ahl al-Sunnah’s Advice for Children
‘Wholeheartedly accept everything Raza says’
Owais Yameen Attari
The Ameer of Ahl al-Sunnah, Allama Muhammad Ilyas Qadiri دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ says:
Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه was a true servant of Allah, the Messenger صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم , the Companions and the friends of Allah. He was a saintly friend of Allah himself. Thanks to Allah, we have remained strongly attached to him and never suffered loss as a result, because Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه never diverged from the Qurān and Sunna. So, we should wholeheartedly accept everything Raza taught.
Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه was a renowned scholar and saint. Along with completing a full recitation of the Qurān at the tender age of four and a half, he issued his first religious edict (fatwā) when he was only 13 years and 10 months old, and continued issuing religious verdicts and writing books until his final breath.
He wrote around a thousand books. One of his books in particular, Al-Dawlat al-Makkiyyah, has a unique story behind its writing. Written in Arabic and comprising of over two-hundred pages, the great Imam wrote this book in Makka in just eight hours while he was extremely ill.
Dear children! We should all try to act upon the advice given to us by the Ameer of Ahl al-Sunnah دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ , which is to wholeheartedly accept everything Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه said, and act upon his blessed teachings.
اٰمِیْن بِجَاہِ خاتَمِ النَّبِیّیْن صلَّی اللہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم
