Salaam to all. I am writing this post out of a sense of moral duty: I had written in another thread: but after having gone through jama-e-noor's special edition on the late Mawlana (rahimahullah), especially the article by Mufti Muti'iur-Rahman sahib, I have to admit that I was ignorant of the many noble works done by him. I have not read Khayraabadiyat nor read or listened to the things hinted at by sidi aH in the other thread. I also do not know the extent to which he was involved with jama-e-noor. I will say this much- his association with Khustar Noorani and his magazine is regrettable. Those who know Khushtar will always raise eyebrows at the closeness of the late Mawlana to him. I do not know what to make of it. Please do not take this to mean that I agree with everything he might have said or done (like some of his correspondences with nadwis etc.) If there is anything in his works which is not in line with the stipulations of the shari'ah then I do not condone it. And I do not fault those scholars who speak out against such things if and when and in a manner in which the shari'ah permits or demands it. My point is that maybe (and I pray that) his good works will prevail over any mistakes he might have committed knowingly or otherwise. Maybe he repented of all of these in that last visit to Baghdad - which turned out to be a permanent residence. He has the mighty good fortune of being buried very close to Gawth-al-'Azam (radhiAllahuahnu) - a fact that we should all take note of. It is said that when the sun rises the shadow of the blessed dome falls on his grave. All's well that ends well! If anyone has to say any thing in this regard we can talk via pm. wassalaam.
