This letter, written again to Sayyid Shaikh Ferîd 'rahmatullâhi aleyh', encourages to spread Islam.
I pray to Allâhu ta'âlâ that the Islamic sun will shine with the help of that great family! May the beauty of the divine rules spread far and near! Translation of a Persian line:
And today, when Muslims are so forlorn, the hope of their salvation from this whirlpool of heresy is on the ship of the sons of the Best of Mankind. It is stated in a hadîth: "My Ahl-i bayt, that is, my sons, are like Hadrat Noah's ship. Those who take refuge with them will be saved." Strive hard so that you may attain to this great fortune! So much thanks be to Allâhu ta'âlâ. He has given you such blessings as rank, power, and influential speech. The honour of your own person being added to these, it will be very easy for you to surpass all of your peers in the field of salvation. [Hadrat Alî and Hadrat Fâtima 'radiy-Allâhu 'anhumâ' and their children and all of their descendants are called Ahl-i bayt.]
This faqîr (Imâm-i Rabbânî means himself) attempted to be honoured with your exalted service in order to say words like these which are useful for strengthening and spreading this true Sharî'at. The crescent of the blessed month of Ramadân was seen when I was in Delhi. It was seen that your honourable mother wanted us to remain in Delhi; therefore we remained there to listen to the khatm of the Qur'ân. The commander is Allâhu ta'âlâ. I pray to Allâhu ta'âlâ for your happiness in this world and the next.
