In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful (1)
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, (2) The Beneficent, the Merciful. (3) Owner of the Day of Judgment, (4) Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. (5) Show us the straight path, (6) The path of those whom Thou hast favoured. Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray. (7)
Dr Israr Ahmad,
thinker, social activist, writer.
Graduated with MBBS from King Edward Medical College, Lahore in 1954 and a practising doctor till 1970 when he moved on to 'doctoring the souls' fulltime. Must have been in his mid 70's in 2009 when this video was recorded. He went on to join the realm of His Beloved, The Most Merciful and The Most High in April 2010.
As with all real ulama',his soul may have left us to meet his Maker, His Most Beneficient, in Alam Barzakh, 'alam al ghayba', but his contributions to society at large still REMAIN [ present tense ] well grounded here on this lowly Planet Earth.
Inna lillah hiwainna ilaihirojiun.
