Allah, the Almighty, has sent a chain of the prophets, more or less one Lac and twenty four thousand, pious and pure people who aroused the humanity in those who had forgotten the rules of humanity. Before the advent of the prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), the humanity was deeply engrossed in trouble. People had becom e thirsty of each other's blood. They used to fight for travails. They used to initiate wars which continued for years and years. They used to bury their daughters alive. Furthermore they had all social evils. Then Allah had pity on this misguided humanity and raised his beloved prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) from them and in them. Not to talk of others, his own blood relatives opposed him and his divinely religion. After him the line of truth and guidance continued by pious caliphates and companions. They had been spreading teaching of piety and proximity to Allah. Later the task of spreading piety and truth fell upon the shoulders of Auwliya -Karam. They had been promoting the message of their spiritual ancestors far and wide bringing people to the fold of Islam. Their message was the message of love, kindness and compassion. These pious people had been spreading the message of their spiritual ancestors in such a way that people began to be attracted towards them. They traveled widely for the preaching Marafat and Taqwa. Among such pious people, had lived a man in the Sub Continent named Molana Zia Ud Din Madani. He was the khalifa of Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Fazil-e-Brailvi. He was from the range of Qadriya. He also got khilafat from the range of Naqshbandiya. His Naqshbandi Sheikh lived at Madina Munawwara. He found the age of 108 years and spent it in the service of Allah’s deen. His disciples include Molana Ilyas Ahmed Qadri, the founder in chief of Dawat-e-Islami. Molana Zia Ud Din Madani spent many years living in Madina spreading the message of his Sheikh. He passed away on 4th Zil Haj 1401 Hijri, 2nd October 1951. He was buried in Jannat ul Baqi. May Allah shower His immense blessings upon him and keep his grave brighten?
