The progeny of the Shaykh

The progeny of the Shaykh

 

Like other rewards, Allah Most High has also rewarded Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) with abundance of progeny.  His son Hadhrat ‘Abdur Razzaq (May Allah shower His mercy on him) says: My father had 27 sons and 22 daughters.

 

Imam Suharwardi (May Allah shower His mercy on him) says: Some virtuous people asked Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah shower His mercy on him) as to why did he marry?  He said: I had not married until the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had not ordered me to marry.
