Book: Recommended reading


In Masjid al-Haraam, Makkah e mukarramah, a pious individual informed that a person in Okara visited the local religious gathering. He reviewed some of the books displayed at the bookstalls outside. He picked up this book, read  few pages but placed it back in the shelf and returned back to his home.

That night he was blessed with vision of our master Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in his dream. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) had few books in his noble hand. They included, ‘Seerat e Ayesha رضى الله عنها ‘ by Allama Syed Suliman Nadwi (may Allah have mercy on him), ‘Uloom e Quran’ and this book ‘Huzoor صلى الله عليه وسلم nay farmaya’ (both) by Hadhrat Mawlana Taqi Usmani (may Allah preserve him). The blessed Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) then addressed this individual inquiring why didn’t he buy this book.

This individual travelled all the way from Okara, NWFP to Karachi and personally narrated this dream to Hadhrat Mawlana Mohammad Taqi Usmani (may Allah preserve him). 

Hadhrat regarded it as a mubasharah (glad tidings) and a state of increased thankfulness (shukur) and humility (tawadu) overcame him.
