Ra’fatul Bari – Preface to Second Edition
All praises to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala for His Mercy and munificence which made it possible for this worthless creature to compile some fundamentals about the sayings of the greatest man ever in the history of mankind, Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). May Allah shower His countless Durood and Salaam upon His beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and accept this humble work and make it a means of Magfirat for me.
The feedback and response I received for the first edition and also the popularity this book earned in a very short span of time encouraged us to go for the second edition so soon. There were also some spelling mistakes and lacunae in proof reading in the first edition, which we have tried to rectify in this edition.
I must thank to Mr. Syed Sajid Sahib of Adam Publishers, New Delhi for publishing this book and also his endeavour to make it available in countries like USA, UK, South Africa and other parts of the globe.
I am thankful to my dear Sameem Husain for untiring pains he took to proofread this edition. I must not fail to thank Mr. Nisar Ahmad also for his help.
May Allah constantly elevate the rank of my spiritual mentor and guide Maseeh-ul-Ummat Mawlana Maseeh-Ullah Khan Sahib Jalalabadi (RA), the special Khalifah of great reformer (Mujaddid) of recent times, Hadhrat Hakeem-ul-Ummat Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thavi (RA). Whatever this worthless creature has, is only due to his guidance and Dua.
