And he said to me: come behind me and I shall make you circle [the Kaa’ba]. So my wife and I went behind him and he made us circle the Kaa’ba (Tawaf Al-Hajj/The Circling of Pilgrimage), and we did not feel any crowd or narrowness [of space], and he was reading Dua’s and Dhikr (invocations), and from them was Dua’ Kumayl, and I was sending a lot of peace and blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad ([making a lot of Salawat]), and I was saying within myself: perhaps this is The Mahdi Muhammad son of Al-Hassan (pbuh), but I would say: who am I that the Mahdi may come [especially] for me and make me circle [the Kaa’ba]?!
To my Master Imam Ahmed Alhasan (Peace be upon him and his fathers).
O Master I have a request if possible. I have a younger brother who suffers from blindness or weak vision since childhood.
O my master and my leader, I am writing to you while a fire is burning in my heart as a result of a trial/affliction that has stricken me. And praise to Allah for His trials/afflictions, I have not seen except that which is beautiful.
