About the Holy Prophet and his Descendants
Praise be to Allah Who
spreads His bounty throughout the creation, and extends His hand of
generosity among them. We praise Him in all His affairs and seek His
assistance for fulfilment of His rights.
We stand witness that there
is no god except He and that Muhammad (p.b.u.h.a.h.p. ) is His slave and
Prophet. He sent him to manifest His commands and speak about His
Consequently, he fulfilled
it with trustworthiness, and he passed away while on the right path.
He left among us the
standard of right. Whoever goes further from it goes out of Faith, whoever
lags behind it is ruined. Whoever sticks to it would join (the right). Its
guide is short of speech, slow of steps, and quick when he rises. When you
have bent your necks before him and pointed towards him with your fingers
his death would occur and would take him away.
They would live after him as
long as Allah wills, till Allah brings out for you one who would collect
you together and fuse you after diffusion.
Do not place expectations in
one who does not
come forward and do not lose hope in one who is veiled, because it is
possible that one of the two feet of the veiled one may slip while the
other may remain sticking, till both return to position and stick.
Beware! The example of the
descendant (Al) of Muhammad - peace and blessing of Allah be upon him and
his descendants - is like that of stars in the sky. When one star sets
another one rises. So you are in a position that Allah's blessings on you
have been perfected and He has shown you what you used to wish for.
The implication is that if for the time being your expectations are not
being fulfilled, you should not be disappointed.
It is possible matters may
improve, the impediments in the way of improvement may be removed and
matters may be settled as you wish.
