When I began to write this book, it was my intention to complete it and take it with me to Gurdaspur on 16th October 1903, where I had to go to answer a criminal charge made against me by an opponent. But it so happened that I suffered a severe attack of pain in my kidney and I apprehended that my design would remain unfulfilled as the time was running short. The pain was so excruciating that it might have proved fatal. God Almighty then directed my attention to prayer. It was three in the early morning and I told my wife that I was going to pray to Allah and she should say 'Amen' after me. In that terrible state and bearing in mind Sahibzada Abdul Latif I began to implore God and supplicated that I had desired to write this booklet in his memory. Suddenly slumber overtook me and then came the revelation: Peace is the greeting from the Ever Merciful Lord. I declare in the name of the Lord Who is the Master of my life that I was completely cured before six o'clock in the morning and I finished writing half the book that very day.
