No new state!


An aspirant wrote that,

‘At this time there is no new state (hal) that I want to mention. It is only to inquire about your well being that I am writing to you.’

Hakim al-Umma Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi (Allah have mercy on him) replied,

‘Not having a new state is also a state (hal). This is, because it means that the condition is stable. Moreover, it is for sure reflective that there is no deterioration. ‘
