On 25th Safar-ul-Muzaffar 1440 AH, Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَتْ بَرَكَاتُـهُمُ الْعَالِيَـه performed Fatihah Khuwani and made Du’a in connection with Isal-e-Sawab of A’la Hadrat, Imam-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ in Jannat Hall at his house (Bayt-ul-Baqi’).

On the blessed night of 25th Safar-ul-Muzaffar, before Madani Muzakarah, Razawiyyah procession was arranged in global Madani Markaz, Faizan-e-Madinah, Bab-ul-Madinah Karachi.

Subsequently, he delivered Madani pearls in Madani Muzakarah, some of them are as follows:
٭ By the mercy of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, since I heard about A’la Hadrat رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ, the seed of his love has grown into a huge tree in my heart. In order to express the favours of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ upon me, let me share: ‘A large number of people around the world are reaping the benefits of this tree’.
٭ There are many scholars and Muftis but no one is like my A’la Hadrat رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ. I do not think anyone like A’la Hadrat might have been born in the last few centuries.
٭ The awareness, people associated with Dawat-e-Islami have about the reverence of Sayyids, is also by blessings of A’la Hadrat رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ.
٭ Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has blessed us with the blessings of A’la Hadrat رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ in this world, may we not be deprived of them in Hereafter too.
