As salaamu alaii kumm wa rahmatullahi wa barakath,

When the effort of Dawah & tabligh was revived nearly a century ago, and because it was an effort that was largely neglected until then, there were people who were doubtful of its legitimacy, of its method in the light of the shariah. Yet, as they say that the proof of the medicine is in the cure, it was only after the sacrifices bore fruit, did people across the strata of society come to embrace it.

The Amazing Story of an English Spy at Dar al Ulum Deoband, 1875.


As salaamu alai kum wa rahmatullahi wa barakath,
