I am pleased to announce that the book has recently been published by the Suffah Foundation (Hudhersfield, UK).
A Compilation of verses from the Holy Qur’an and Prophetic Traditions regarding the blessed extra-ordinary physical qualities and powers granted by Allah, the Supreme, to His chosen bondmen – that is the Prophets, the Companions, & other pious followers. The book also enumerates the miracles attributed to such bondmen and the evidences regarding the blessed sacred relics. By Aqib Qadri

“The Blessed Touch” – the very name of this book speaks volumes of the bounties and blessings that Allah Almighty showers upon His chosen people. A glance at the contents reveals that while compiling this unique book, an endeavour has been made to make it a comprehensive compendium of verses from the Holy Quran, unanimously accepted ahadees and references from other authentic sources that encompass various themes and topics concerning the blessings associated with Allah’s special bondsmen. We often confront misguided people who believe in the false notion that all are equal in Allah’s sight and that you cannot have any benefit from those who are dead irrespective of their exalted position in their lives. Now I feel greatly relieved because this book gives an ample evidence to nullify the claims of those who are doing nothing but groping in the dark.
Imbibed with the love of the Holy Prophet , Mr. Aqib Qadri, the author, is ever intent upon removing all misconceptions regarding the exalted position that Allah has bestowed upon our beloved Prophet. His English translation of the Holy Qur’an adapted from “Kanz ul Iman” (The Treasure of faith) stands as a testimony to the fact that he is vehemently striving to disseminate the cause of Imam Ahmad Raza Khan Barelvi (RA), who throughout his life waged a war of words against those who blasphemously try to undermine the glorious status Muhammad Mustafa . The care with which he chooses English expressions to convey the real meanings is enormously amazing. Even his other books and articles are deceptively simple in style. In a very qualitative language, he easily communicates even highly sophisticated facts and ideas.
Dwelling again upon “The Blessed Touch”, I must say that the way this book has been arranged is undoubtedly marvellous. There are nineteen sections and each section has a number of chapters, logically and chronologically developing the themes and topics from general to the specific. This makes it quite easy to build up arguments against those who have gone astray by Khawarij cult.
Particularly from Section 5 to the concluding one, corporeal miracles and the blessings of Allah’s selected people and their relics have been highlighted. To establish the conspicuousness of the Holy Prophet Muhammad , the instances of his blood and urine put forward a solid proof that he ( ) stands aloof from the entire creation. Full credit goes to Mr. Aqib Qadri for this exquisite effort to put all the relevant material at one place. As this has to serve as a reference, the long list of topics and sub-topics is justified in view of the sensitivity of the matter.
In the concluding remarks, I would recommend that every Sunni Muslim must read this book, not only to kindle his own faith but also to counter the ignominious propaganda launched by those cursed people who take delight in undermining the elevated souls. May Allah shower His unbound bounties and blessings on Mr. Aqib Qadri and his family.
