In 2004, We had met an old Turk Baba in Masji e Nabwi Shareef. He cried constantly in love of Rasul Allah (sm) and even more when he knew that we are from Pakistan. Baba Hussain only spoke Turkish but our hearts connected so profoundly that we decided to visit him in Turkey in 2005. He was born during the first world war and has seen the painful transformation of Turkey from the seat of Khilafat to the liberal secular anarchy in the 20th century.

Today, Baba Hussain is 96 years old and as passionately emotional about Pakistan as he is about Sayyadi Rasul Allah (sm). We had an emotional and soul melting meting with him and he took us to his old farm house where he still maintains his small orchid staying close to the land he tills. We were most lovingly invited into his family of children, grand children and great grand children, MashAllah and we truly saw the love and bonding in this Ummat of Rasul Allah (sm). The family of Baba Hussian have maintained their Islamic character and values and shine like bright pearls in this sea of liberal westernization we see in Turkey today. They all spoke only Turkish but there was nothing that we did not discuss and understood through the warmth of their love.

InshAllah, one day, the Kufr made barriers of visas and passports will be removed in this ummat and once again Muslims will travel and meet freely with each other as was being done for 1400 years. Baba Hussian is one of the last remaining khair from the period of Khilafat and with him and his values remain alive the hopes and khair in our brotherly Turk Millat also.

Baba Hussain, now all Pakistan knows you and send back the love which you have for Rasul Allah (sm) and Pakistan. May Allah keep you strong, healthy and vibrant to see the lost glory of the Ummah once again. Stay blessed always and forever...
