He had six sons. Four of his sons are life devotees. Two of them are doctors. One has a PhD and is serving as the deputy director in Nazarat-e-Ta’leem (the department of education). Similarly, one of them has studied law and is serving as an assistant in the office of the legal advisor. One of his sons, Dr. Mirza Sultan Ahmad Sahib writes:
“He had great love for Hazrat Khalifat-ul-Masih II. A few years ago, he had to cut short a visit to Okara because of his heart trouble, he prayed all the way back to Rabwah he would reach Rabwah, so that he could pass away at the feet of Hazrat Khalifat-ul-Masih II.’”
In other words, the place where he is buried and the area which he populated. This was the story of his love and affection towards Hazrat Khalifat-ul-Masih II. He further writes:
“He frequently used to say that the opponents are very spiteful towards Hazrat Khalifat-ul-Masih II (ra), as a matter of fact, even more so than towards the Promised Messiah.”
The reason for this is that the opponents believe, which is correct to some extent, as a matter of fact, it is correct to a great extent, that Hazrat Khalifat-ul-Masih II established and strengthened the Nizam (system) of the Jama’at. This is the Jama’at of Allah the Exalted, which was destined to flourish, and all of this was bound to take place.
Fauzia Shameem sahiba, Sadr Lajna Lahore, daughter of Hazrat Nuwaab Amtul Hafeez Begum sahiba who was the youngest daughter of the Promised Messiah (as), writes:
“His virtues become more prominent after becoming Nazir-e-Ala. He was a very humble servant of the Jama’at. He was very compassionate, most helpful, and kind person.” Despite his busy schedule, he made tremendous efforts for the reformation of a youth with his kind advice and prayers. She says: “Whenever I sought his consultation, he gave me an excellent advice. He was a very spiritual person and a well-wisher for all.”
