A Grand Old Man (DB)

Muhi-us-Sunnah Hazrat Maulana Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahab Haqqi (RA) was the last lamp of Bazm-e-Ashraf, the nursery of Hazrat Aqdas Hakim-ul-Ummat Mujaddid-e-Millat Ashraf Ali Thanwi Sahab (NM). After him Hakim Shah Muhammed Akhtar Sahab (DB) is one of the grand old men of that stream of sweet drink. It is not uncommon to hear his name in the sittings (majalis) being reported here. It seems as if he is not living across the border but across the street, may be Pahsu House (that is adjacent to Anona House.) The world, the baser self and Satan the cursed can give you excruciating pain. In such circumstances one ends up crying before Shaikh. What happens then? Well those who have been blessed by Allah Most High will discover that you get the best in spite of the fact that you were feeling as if you were in the worst situation. To observe it personally put yourself in the mood when you realized that you had ended up committing a big mistake. Now listen to was Hakim Akhtar Sahab (DB) says to you here at Ashrafia.
