Hadrat Mawlana Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullah
Once again more than two million believers were honoured to become the ‘Guests of Allah’ and through Divine Guidance have completed the rituals of Hajj with great love and enthusiasm. How fortunate are these souls who are blessed with the following words from Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam:
Whoever performs Hajj for the Pleasure of Allah and therein utters no word of evil, nor commits any evil deed, shall return from it (free from sin) as the day on which his mother gave birth to him. (Al-Bukhari, Muslim)
Verily there shall be no reward for a Mabroor Hajj except Jannah. (Al-Bukhari, Muslim)

Indeed, We have sent down the Dhikr [the Qur'ān], and indeed We are its guardian. (15:9)
In this verse Allāh ta'ālā proclaims that it is He, and He alone, who has revealed the Glorious Qur'ān to mankind, which means it is His Word. This claim is followed by a proof to validate it: that Allāh ta'ālā Himself is its guardian and protector. When Allāh ta'ālā protects something, nothing and no one can ever interfere with it, so the continual preservation of the Qur'ān is a proof that it is the Word of Allāh ta'ālā. There are many other proofs of the Divine origin of the Qur'ān, including its i'jāz (inimitability) – the challenge to mankind to invent even a single verse to match the Qur'ān in its perfection. However, the preservation of the Qur'ān is a proof that even a child can understand.
Everyone is aware of the devastation that natural disasters bring with them. Many lose their lives, hundreds of thousands lose relatives, entire communities are wiped out and countless buildings and properties are destroyed. Thousands, even millions are left homeless, having lost everything they once owned, living under open skies with nothing to eat and cover themselves with. Even after the calamity has subsided, the death toll continues to increase with the spread of disease.
