Virtues of Aala Hazrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan
At the time of the demise of A’la Hazrat Imam Ahl-e-Sunnat Radi Allahu Ta’ala , a certain Saint of Syria, dreamt of the Holy Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam while he was in the Baitul Muqaddas. In his dream, the Saint saw many Sahaba-I-kraam Radi Allahu Ta’ala seated around the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wasallam.
All of them seemed to be waiting for someone. The Saint says that, in his dream, he asked, “Ya Rasoolallah SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam! Whose presence is being anticipated?” The Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wasallam replied, “Ahmed Raza Khan.” The blessed Saint then asked, “Who is Ahmed Raza Khan”?
The Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wasallam answered, “An Aalim from Bareilly” When the Saint awoke, he immediately journeyed from Syria to Bareilly Shareef to meet A’la Hazrat Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu, but to his dismay, he learnt that A’la Hazrat Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu had already departed from this world.
