Peace upon Muhammad Mustafa, the beloved and Allah’s mercy to the universe. In every utterance of those who say his prophetic name and number of those who do not say his name in their heedlessness and, peace and worthy praying be upon Him. Peace and praying to be upon His sinless, shameless, and dignified family and Companions!
This book is the first volume of the book of (MAKTÛBÂT) of Imâm-i-Rabbânî Mujaddid-i elfi thani Ahmed-i Faruqi Nakshbendi (sallemehullahu subhanehu and ebkahu) who is the master of true ‘ulamâ’, the light of the wises, proof of Wilayat-i Muhammadiyya, the witness of Shari-a Muhammadiyah, sheikh of Islam, great ‘ulamâ’ of Muslims, the apostle of Walîs. There are three hundred and thirteen epistles in this volume. These epistles were collected by Muhammad-ul Jadid-i Badahshi Talkani (quddisa sirruh) who was in the service and conversation of His Highness Imâm-i-Rabbânî, and who has the knowledge and skill.

We wish to protect us from shame and sins and help us to advance and rise.
In the incitement to gather both the wealth, that of decorating the exterior with the shariah-ordinances and of liberating the interior from what is “other” than Allah, has written to Sheikh Farid.
May Allah bless you with formal wealth and substantial blessings. In reality, the formal wealth is the decoration of the exterior with the ordinances of the shari-ah Muhammadiyah (ala sahibassalatu wassalamu wattehiyye), and the substantial blessing is the liberation of the interior from the captivity of what is besides Allah. Let us see who is the fortunate one whom they dignify with these two distinctions. This is the task and all other is naught Any further writing is mere troubling.
Rabbighfir warham anta arhamurrahimin tawaffani musliman wa alhikni bissalihin.
On the description that how big a good fortune it is that the friends of Allah may accept someone, has written to Pahlwan Mahmood.
May Allah grant you peace and steadfastness on the path of Shariah (ala sahibassalatu wa salamu wattehiyya). The coming of Miyan Muzzammil is the first good tiding for your family. What to speak of the blessings of his company. How big a good fortune it is that the friends of Allah come to accept someone and, in addition to that, favour him with their love and nearness. “They are a people that the sitter with them does not go unflavoured.” In short, consider his company a boon and observe the etiquette of the company so that it be more effective. What to write further and be peace firstly and lastly. [See the hundred and sixth epistle.]
On the prohibition of postponing, has this also written to Mullã Muhammad Siddiq.
May Allah honour with limitless ascensions in the stages of nearness by the sanctity of the lord of the prophets (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam). O the image of love, time is a cutting sword, it is not known whether They grant respite till tomorrow or not. More important tasks ought to be done today and the less important ones to be left for tomorrow. This is the way wisdom demands, not only worldly wisdom but the afterworld wisdom as well (Akl-i mu’âd). That is not (Akl-ı me’âsh). There is nothing to write further, and be peace.
Giving a word of advice, has written to Mir Abdullah, son of Mir Muhammad Numan.
May my beloved son be granted the power to stand as the embodiment of his name. The period of youth ought to be considered a boon, and ought to be employed in acquiring the shariah knowledge, and spend in doing deeds that conform to that knowledge. Beware that this life precious wasted in works useless and is lost in fun and amusements. Your worthy father shall, God willing, be meeting you within few days and until he reaches look after the dependants nicely. Translation of Persian verse:
Be like your father if you have manly splendour
On the description that how great a blessing it is that one should have one’s black hair turned grey in faith and righteousness, in youth being led by fear and in old age by hope, has written this also to Pahlwan Mahmood.
May keep always with Himself. How great a bounty it is that one should have his black hairs turned grey in faith and righteousness. It comes in a prophetic tradition (alaihissalatu wassalam): “Whosoever reached old age in Islam, is forgiven.” Therefore, be more expectant and anticipant of pardon, since in youth more of fear is needed and in old age greater domination of 162 hope, and be peace first and last of offering condolence, has written to Mirza Ali Jan.
Who is in the world except for grief?
Everyone has a problem since he is human.
Just a little bit of pleasure follows by a thousand hunters of grief.
I do not know why the public is fond of such a dream.
