Stay in Madina

Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) traveled to the blessed cities of Makkah and Madina four times.  The first was in 1294 Hijri.  It was in this journey that he gave his spiritual pledge to Hadhrat Haji Imdaadullah Muhajir Makki (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) and was awarded the authorization to accept and instruct disciples without asking for it.


The second journey was in 1301 Hijri.  The third was in 1305 Hijri with the intention to stay there for forever.  After Hajj, he took up residence in Madina and stayed there, in the presence of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) for 3 years.  It was during this stay that he composed his fabulous work, “Anwaar-e-Ahmadi” in which he wrote soul-stirring articles about the greatness and excellence of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) himself writes about this book:


Translation: In the period, when the Master of both worlds had accepted my coming to Madina, the best of all cities, some days passed in which there were no educational responsibilities.  As human intellect doesn’t stay idle, I got the thought that I should select some details about the Mawlid, about the excellence and miracles of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) from the canons of Hadith and the biographies of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and compose them in poetical forms.


Neither have I learnt poetry under anyone nor do I claim mastery in it, Nor do I know the similes and allegories of the people of India.  However, this is only because this service suits this place (i.e. Madina).  It shouldn’t be a wonder if Muslims derive some benefit from this as well.  I had composed some couplets and had not yet reached my destination that I got the thought of explaining and interpreting those couplets because until and unless the origin of those details as not mentioned, they wouldn’t be considered reliable.  Thus, in that period, the interpretation of some couplets was written………..(Foreword, Anwaar-e-Ahmadi)
