In the endwordt of the 4th volume of Ileau us Sunan it states;
”Alhamdulillah the 4th volume of Ileau us Sunan is completed. This is work is done because of; The knower of Allah, the remover of afflections, sahib of greats merits; my master Hakimu’l Ummah Asharaf Ali at Tahanawi (kuddisu sirruh)”
Who is the remover of afflections?
PS: I have this from the Turkish translation, we fear Allah of attributing lies to someone, so maybe someone can check the original Arabic version.
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
The words in the Arabic are كاشف الغمة meaning “the one who explains that which is unclear” and it refers to none other than Hakeemul Ummah Mujadidul Milla Arif Billah Hazrat Maulana Shah Muhammad Ashraf Ali Thanwi Saheb Rahimuhullah Ta’ala.
And Allah knows best
