True love (ishq-e-haqiqi) is the love for sake of Allah Almighty. It includes filial and familial love.
Recently the Last of the Early Elders Qari Amir Hasan Sahab, may Allah Almighty provide us his shade for a long time to come, visited South Africa. From there he came back to India at a time when northern part of the country was having extraordinarily soaring temperatures. Consultations lead to the decision that he should go to Hyderabad but some communication gap ensued and Qari Sahab (DB) landed at Delhi from Mumbai. Hazrat Shaikh, may Allah Almighty provide us his blessings for a long time to come, suggested that Qari Sahab should proceed for Hyderabad owing to the unbearable heat.
"I'll come to Aligarh. My heart is longing to meet you", Qari Sahab said over the telephone.
He has not been in South Africa for long and before that he was in Aligarh.
