Shaykh Sayyid Zawwar Hussain Shah (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘Shaykh Mujaddid Alif Thani (Allah have mercy on him) has described seven levels of following the Sunna. (It is in his maktubat, letter number 54, volume 2).
What the general public and scholars of the outward (ashab e zawahir)consider following of the Sunna is the very first level.’
