Dealing with Death

Maulana Sayed Ahmed
(رحمة الله عليه)
, the brother of Shaykhul Islam Maulana Hussain Ahmad Madani
(رحمة الله عليه)
, advises Hazrat Shaykh
(رحمة الله عليه)
on how to cope with the death of his father, Maulana Yayha
(رحمة الله عليه).

"بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
To beloved Maulana Zakariyya (May Allah protect him),
from Sayed Ahmed

After sincere Islamic greetings to you, I inform you that I am in sound health, hoping that you together with your family are in good health. You have become a teacher, so how will you still remember us who are far away from you. My relationship with your late father was so close and friendly that even if you should be indifferent to us, we will not be the same to you, that we sit still quietly.

When I read the letter from Hafiz Muhammad Yakoob of the sad demise of your father, only the Knower of the Unseen will know what sorrow passed over my heart. But beloved brother, what is there that one can do except say: "Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi Raaji-oon" From this I have the hope of receiving the reward of "Salaawaatum min Rabbihim."

Now it is your turn to show that you are a true substitute for him as he was with his academic and moral qualities.

"The real young hero is he who says: 'Here am I"',
Not the one who says: 'My father was like this and that.'"
....

... Now listen Bhai Zakariyya, if you do not reply my letter, I will become offended and displeased. Thereafter, no matter how hard you try to please me, I will not be pleased. I herby conclude my letter without saying anything else.

From Sayed Ahmad
26 Jamadil Awwal 1337 Hijri

DAJJAL HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED!!

DO YOU KNOW THE DAJJAL (THE ANTI-CHRIST), THE ONE-EYED GIANT PROPHECISED BY THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH HAS ALREADY BEEN IN EXISTENCE FOR THE PAST 472 YEARS & HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED?

YOU MAY BE AMAZED TO KNOW THAT IT IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IT IS THOUGHT TO BE TODAY. TO SEE WHAT IT ACTUALLY IS – VISIT THE WEBSITE http://www.hezbuttawheed.com AND READ THE BOOK “DAJJAL? THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION!” AND WATCH THE DOCUMENTARY “DAJJAL? THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION!”.
