Alhamdi Lillahe Rabbil Aalamin Wassalato Wassalamo Ala Nabiyeid-din wa Aalehi Gurral Mayamin Amma Baad.
When this weak slave Abdullah Mamkani realised this world's short life and unreliability and when he became sure that death does not give extension to anybody - you cannot delay the destined time by even a second - then I became afraid, lest I depart from this world without teaching my son spiritual guidance! Therefore I found it necessary to write a book in the form of a 'Will' which will serve as a guidance to my children, my friends, my relatives and others who wish to get religious and worldly benefits.
It is my heartfelt desire that all my children and my religious brethrens should read this 'Will' at least once or once a month. Whosoever of my children who doesn't read this, will be considered 'Aak' in my view and there will be no hope of salvation either in this world or the hereafter. If someone draws salvation from some of the advices in this 'Will', then he should try to act on the remaining advices also, so that one day, he is strong enough to act on all the advices in this book.
Those of my relatives, who may act on this 'Will', I pray to Allah to bless them in this world as well as in the next world, to protect them from sins and losses, to increase their life-span and may they live in peace and ease.
O God! For this 'Will', I reward me and my children on that day - the day when neither wealth nor children will be of any help.
- Shaikh Abdullah Mamkani (a.r)
