    ..."

    He died 12 May - Innalilahe wa inna alehe rajeoun.

      Inna-Lillah-e-Wa-Inna-Ilaih-e-Rajioon...

      "converted to Islam, and was soon imbued with the Sufi dimension of the religion."

      May Allah :swt: grant him peace, Ameen...

      The greatest biography of the Prophet :saw: that was written is the Raheeq-al-Makhtoom...

      This biography even goes into the details of the Holy Prophet :saw:'s birth, childhood, pre-Prophethood days and the effects of the signs that the Prophethood was having on him...

      An amazing piece of literature and spell binding...
      Focus not on who you are but what you do...
