Book Name:Aala Hazrat ka Ishq e rasool

Dear Islamic brothers! How sincere and true a lover, Imam Ahmad Raza Khan عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الْـمَـنَّان was! Indeed, a devotee likes and reveres from the bottom of his heart everything associated with his beloved as Imam Ahmad Raza Khan
عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الْـمَـنَّان respected the cucumber in such a manner that he ate it despite it being bitter just because the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم liked it.

 

There was a special grace of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and His Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم upon A’la Hadrat that the style of his writing was so attractive that even reverence and the acts of showing utmost respect themselves will feel pride. Normally he رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه would respect all the great personages from the bottom of his heart, but in the matters of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم he would take great care of reverence. If the element of disrespect appeared from anyone’s writing or conversation مَنۡ اَحَبَّ سُنَّتِىۡ فَـقَدۡ اَحَبَّنِىۡ وَ مَنۡ اَحَبَّنِىۡ كَانَ مَعِىَ فِى الْجَنَّةٍ, or if he feels any slight lacking in the honour and glory of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم due to any word, he would immediately warn them. Furthermore, he would also avoid using such words in his writings and Na’atiyah poetry. Let’s listen to two faith-refreshing incidents:

Reverence for the sacred words

It is stated on page 173 of the 561-page book ‘Malfuzaat-e-A’la Hazrat’ published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah, the publishing department of Dawat-e-Islami: Once the nephew of Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه was relating some questions to Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه asked by the people and he was also writing these answers down. He wrote the word ‘اللّٰه[Allah] on a card. Upon this A’la Hazrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan عَـلَيْهِ رَحْمَةُ الـرَّحْمٰنْ said: “I never write the sacred words such as ‘اللّٰه’, ‘محمّد’ and ‘احمد’ nor any Ayaat-e-Karimah ever. If I have to write ‘رسولُ اللّٰه صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِه وَسَلَّم’ [Rasoolullah] ever,
