Sahibzada Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri spoke on the topic of the Holy Prophet’s (blessings & peace be upon him) “Attribute of Gnosis”. He said that everything in the world owed itself to the gnosis of the Holy Prophet (blessings & peace be upon him). That is why the blessed soul of the Holy Prophet (blessings & peace be upon him) is present in every age. Referring to a tradition, he said that when one gets back home, one should say “Assalam-o-Alakium” in accordance with the saying of the Holy Prophet (blessings & peace be upon him). And when there is no one at home, one should offer Durood. He said that none is luckier than him who got nearness to the Holy Prophet (blessings & peace be upon him), for in this way he succeeded not only this world but also in the hereafter.
