The knowledge from which no benefit is derived is like a treasure from which no charity
is bestowed in the way of the Lord. Saying of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)
O Kumayl ! Knowledge is power and it can command obedience. A man of knowledge during his lifetime can make people obey and follow him and he is praised and venerated after his death. Remember that knowledge is a ruler and wealth is its subject. Saying of Imam Ali (a.s.)
All Praise to Almighty Allah and Masoomeen a.s.
Dear all ,
My name is Syed Waseem ul Hassan & I’m an Architect by profession, a resident of Kashmir. My father is a religious scholar and serves as Imam at a local masjid. He has a small but good collection of religious books which are mostly written in Persian and Arabic.
In our state very few people understand Persian and Arabic. And I’m not among those lucky few. I always desire that I should buy , collect and read religious books. I actually want to collect books and make them available for others also but in English and Urdu Languages so that majority of the people can read and understand them. It can be in the shape of a small free library with which Momineen can benefit themselves.
For this cause I have already started buying books I can afford. I’m writing this letter to all concerned persons, agencies and organizations which often distribute free books and literature or may donate books in English and Urdu languages. Please let us start this today to secure our future and that of generations to come. I think this will be a small tribute towards Masoomeen a.s..
