Volume 1 Letter 64
From: Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariya Sahib (May his secret be sanctified)
To: Hazrat Moulana Abdur-Raheem Motala Sahib
Date: Muharram-Safar 1388/March-April 1968
Dearest Molvi Abdur-Raheem, after the sunnah greetings, at the outset, it was by way of your letter some days ago that I initially heard of Gulam Muhammadís separation. I had intended to send a money order but Iíve had little reason to send one in the past, I have always been miserly in this regard. Subsequently I had the notion of availing myself of dearest Yusufís rent money and sending it to him.
I inquired of Yusuf as to who retains the deposit and he informs me that it is with you, this pleased me immensely as this will facilitate things significantly. I requested dearest Yusuf to take 100 rupees from the amount and impart it to Molvi Gulam Muhammad and also hand over the attached letter to him.
Dearest Yusuf has repeatedly sought council from me with

From: Hazrat Moulana Yusuf Motala Sahib (May Allah lengthen his lofty shadow)
After the sunnah greetings, it was only today that I took receipt of your letter, I did pen acknowledgement letters for the earlier correspondence I trust you have received them. I have tendered Mufti Sahibís letter to him, the preceding Juma he personally enquired of me if I had received any mail, I replied in the negative to which he said that he too had not received anything.
Nevertheless, we will know by this evening, inshallah Mufti Sahib himself will bring the amount and god willing distribute it as per instructions and thereafter I will send the remaining amount tomorrow after Juma. This lowly oneís health is the same as before.
Hazratís health is unchanged; in the main Hazrat does not turn up to dine at lunchtime, though physically he is still the same. I wrote in the previous card that Hazrat will undeniably go for Haj next year donít consider this as hearsay neither is it conjecture or rumour, it is accurate information. Kindly inform if you receive any letter from our esteemed mother.
Last night Hazrat gave permission of bayíat to Mia Ji Musa Mewati; a companion of Moulana Ilyas Sahib who is now of a very advanced age.
Convey my Salaam and request for prayers to chothi khala and bhabhi sahiba.
That is all. ††††††††
