Correspondence of Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah) with his Daughter – Letter Four & Five

“You should definitely count how many of my letters have reached you. The idea is that in this distress of yours, at least my letters continue to reach you. Nevertheless, this piece of advice I will repeatedly share with you, that if you remain occupied in zikr and continue to read tasbeeh in abundance, then you will get everything in the Hereafter, and in this world as well you will enjoy a great amount of peace and tranquillity.”

“Allah Ta‘ala alone knows the wisdom behind every condition. Your duty is to continue making du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala and thereafter remain patient and grateful on His decision. Whatever you are doing is all for the Hereafter. Then why is it that you feel sorrow and regret that Ramadhaan was not spent correctly? Serving the husband and nursing him is also an action for Allah Ta‘ala and the Hereafter. You should certainly continue to make the intention that everything is for Allah Ta‘ala, and not to show the world.”

Correspondence of Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah) with his Daughter – Letter Three

“Your distress is not something I am unconcerned or unaware of. However by merely having concern, does anything happen? In reality everything is under the control and power of Allah Ta‘ala. Continue asking Allah Ta‘ala and I am making du‘aa as well.

You had written, ‘I have no idea what to do, except to cry all the time.’ This is something very surprising. What is the benefit in you only crying except that you will make yourself ill as well? Is there anything else that can happen?

Correspondence of Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah) with his Daughter – Letter Two

“The distress you are experiencing always plays through my mind, even though it is not something to be distressed about. Illness and hurdles will always remain with a person. In every decision of Allah Ta‘ala there is certainly wisdom, whether we see it or fail to see it. Our duty as a servant is to continue supplicating to Allah Ta‘ala for goodness with patience and gratitude.

Rather than becoming distressed, continue turning to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa. Its benefits are many. If outwardly we do not see any signs of the du‘aa being accepted, then too we should never ever entertain the thought that the du‘aa has not been accepted, for insha-Allah it has definitely been accepted. Its effect has already taken place in whichever form it may be, even though it remains hidden from our eyes.”

Correspondence of Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah) with his Daughter – Letter One

“Your letter has reached us. Everything you have written regarding your distress and restlessness is true and in its place, and I can well understand its weight. However when something is not within our choice, besides patience, is there anything else that we can do? Most definitely you also have the desire to meet me and the children as well; but right now the need of Moulana In‘aam gains first preference over everything else. For this, you will insha-Allah be tremendously rewarded. Being separated from each other, in this world is for a very few days. After death, what work is there to do? We will always be meeting each other. Furthermore, travelling has always been very difficult for me, and now it has become even more difficult.

Correspondence of Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah) with his Daughter – Introduction

One of the daughters of Shaikhul Hadeeth, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhelwi (rahimahullah) was married to Moulana In‘aamul Hasan (rahimahullah), the third ameer of the effort of tableegh. He had once fallen very ill which had lasted for over two years. His wife had to be at his side to see to him. Thus she remained in Kandhla for that entire duration, away from her family who were in Saharanpur.

In that time period, her father, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah) continued to write letters to her, in order to give her the support and courage that she needed. He also highlighted to her the importance of nursing her ailing husband and of constantly turning to Allah Ta‘ala and engaging in virtuous deeds.
