A Chapter From The Book
IMAM AHMED RAZA'S BLESSED BIRTH
Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (radi Allahu anhu) was born on a Monday, the 10th of Shawaal 1272 A.H. (14th June 1856), at the time of Zohar Salaah in a place called Jasoli, which is in the city of Baraily Shareef, India.
A few days before the birth of Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (radi Allahu anhu), his father, Allamah Mawlana Naqi Ali Khan (radi Allahu anhu), had a wonderful dream. He immediately disclosed this dream to his father, Allamah Mawlana Raza Ali Khan (radi Allahu anhu), who interpreted this dream by saying:
"This is a sign that you are going to be the father of a child, a boy, who will grow up to be pious and knowledgeable. His name will gain prominence from East to West."
This was the good news that was given to Allamah Mawlana Naqi Ali Khan (radi Allahu anhu) concerning the birth of none other than the "emerald from amongst the Treasures of Almighty Allah", the "sweet-scented rose from the fragrant garden of the Holy Prophet (SallAllah hu Alaihi Wasallam)", Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (radi Allahu anhu).
The date of birth of A'la Hazrat (radi Allahu anhu)was extracted by himself from the Holy Quran.
"These are they in whose hearts Allah has inscribed faith and helped them with a spirit from Himself." - (T.M.Q. 58:2)
