A Nice Comment

The comment is from Ashrafia (Main). It comes with the post Essential Advice for Salik. It is about the cute little book Taleem-ud-Deen by Hazrat Thanvi (RA) and says:
The edition by Maktaba e Rehmania, Lahore is the best currently available. It has explanation and translation of all Arabic and Persian quotes in footnotes.
Now these explanations and translations are sometimes extremely essential. Such things are clear to the Masha-ikh but they will not know whether their word has reached us or not. Many times the meaning remains obscure owing to a single word. In such cases the notes mentioned above come in handy.
