Shaykh-ul-Islam`s Visit to Makkah for Condolence
He arrived in Makkah on the day after the demise of the Shaykh. He was received by the younger brother of the Shaykh, as-Sayyad Abbas bin Alavi al-Maliki and the two elder sons of the Shaykh, as-Sayyad Ahmad bin Muhammad al-Alavi and as-Sayyad Abdullah bin Muhammad al-Alavi.
After condoling with the family members of the Shaykh, an iftar dinner was arranged in honour of Shaykh-ul-Islam Prof. Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri which was also attended by local scholars. Shaykh-ul-Islam remembered Shaykh as-Sayyad Muhammad bin Alavi al-Maliki al-Makki and gave specific reference to the special regard which the Shaykh showed to him when ever he came to Makkah while addressing the participants.
As Shaykh-ul-Islam had to return to Pakistan for the Annual Collective Itikaf which takes place under his spiritual guidance, he was not able to stay in Makkah for more than a few days. He managed to return to Pakistan just in time for the itikaf as flights were virtually unavailable.
On his arrival to Pakistan Shaykh-ul-Islam spoke about his dear friend Shaykh as-Sayyad
Muhammad bin Alavi al-Maliki al-Makki for an hour in his Jummah sermon at the Itikaf City.
