First it was by Allama Shafi Golarahwi Mundairwi, but due to his death, that series of chapters were cut off and we’ve started to publish from other authors.

But we often change the order of these topic and put them forward due to the special topics related to the month.

This time, as the month of Sha’ban is related to Mehboob-e-Zaat, ZIKR-E-MEHBOOB-E-ZAAT ra was repeated with another topic and another author.
The next topic, used to be, is The Remembrance of Sakiy-e-Kamil RA (ZIKR-E-SAKIY-E-KAMIL ra). As this month is related to Mehboob-e-Zaat, so in this topic we published Hazrat Mehboob-e-Zaat RA in the sight of Sakiy-e-Kamil (HAZRAT MEHBOOB-E-ZAAT ra SAKIY-E-KAMIL ra KI NAZAR MEIN).
