The Mashaik Of Chist
Contains the biographies of the Mashaa'ikh in the Shajarah of Shaykh al-Hadith Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi.
This book which is presented to readers, contains the names and life-episodes of such noble Auliya and Masha-ikh whose existence constitutes a ni�mat (divine favour) and whose very mention is a rahmat (divine mercy) for the world.
Most aptly does the following gracious Qur�anic ayat apply to these illustrious Souls:
�Those first ones who have taken the lead among the Muhaajireen and the Ansaar and those who have followed them with the firmest conviction of Imaan (Ihsaan), Allah is well-pleased with them and they are well-pleased with Him.�
They were the true and perfect Mu�mins. They were excellent Muslims. In reality they were the slaves of Allah. They fully fulfilled the design declared in the ayat:
�I have not created jinn and man except that they worship Me.�
