I was very happy in my heart that such happy occasions are gathered for me. That is, I am serving a blessed person like Hazrat Sahib. The time is Fajr which is the blessed time. The month is Ramadan which is the blessed month. The date is 27th and a Friday.

Praying in the rain
How many know that when it rains, there are more chances that the prayers get heard and there are even higher chances if it’s raining and you run into a jungle? Mirza Ghulam Ahmad told Abdullah and Mr. Sanori went into a jungle in rain, prostrated for nearly a full day praying for the birth of the promised son.(Later a girl was born) Well, if you are imagining an elderly white beard Mr. Sanori, then no Sir, he was a 22y/o boy under the influence of 51y/o Mirza G. A.
MGA’s dream about Sanuari’s finger in his diarrhea
Published in 1921 from the book house in Qadian, “Letters of Promised Messiah, addressed to Maulvi Abdullah Sanauri”
