His nephew has also corroborated it. He writes, In the beginning of his life his
color was dark wheatish. But the continuous work and toil had removed the
brightness and luster from his color.
Jenab Ahmad Raza was lean and thin.
He suffered from kidney pain and otherdiseases that caused weakness.
He had continuous pain in the back.
Similarlyhe often used to be gripped in headache and fever.
He had a defect in his right
eye. It was continuously affected and it had lost vision because of its continuous
watering. He treated it for a long time but it did not recover.
Once food was keptin front of him. He ate the dish but did not touch the Chapatis
. His wife asked
him, what is the matter? Why did you stop at the dish only? Why didnt you take
the Chapatis? He replied that he could not see them. Even though they were justkept next to the dish.
2. And in its response some people have unnecessarily blackened the pages of books (i.e.written them) trying to prove that black is white.
3. In replying they say that his (i.e. Ahmad Raza) color was not black but was dark wheatish and the color had lost its brightness and luster. We say, what shade of color isdark wheatish ?! Why is it necessary to go into interpretations? Why not simply admit
that his color was black ?!
4. And in the reply, those people on whom it was related that they said that Alaa Hazrat (i.e.
Ahmad Raza) was white and not black, none of them exist now. These were baselessproofs.Even today, the color of all his children is black. Even though it is not a matter of defect. Somepeople have tried to prove our source as wrong, and accordingly we felt it necessary to refute
them. [Urdu Translators Footnote]

Jenab Abdul Hakim Sahib has objected that the writer mention the defect in Ahmad Razas eye.
Whereas even this is a part from human features and to object to it and to get angry on it is not
justified. In reply Jenab Qadri Sahib writes, Actually this is in opposition to the fact. What
happened in 1300 Hijri, he was studying books with fine print continuously for a month. Due toexcessive heat, one day he took a bath. As soon as the water hit the head, he noticed somethingfrom the head from the right eye came in the head. After closing the left eye he saw from the right
eye and saw in middle of sight a black circle (or spot).
Jenab Qadri Sahib mentioned this section from Malfoozaat (sayings), but by giving proof ofliterary dishonesty instead of relating the whole section he omitted the next part. Immediately
after what was mentioned above it is written in Malfoozaat, what is from the bottom of the righteye (i.e. what was visible from the right eye), that is unclear and blurred.
What else is meant by leaving off of this part by Qadri Sahib except that he wanted to hide the
defect in Aala Hazrat. Wereas there is nothing in it that one would feel ashamed about. To have a
defect in any eye is not in ones control, this is from the right of Allaah, Accordinly we wouldrequest Qadri Sahib to refrain from being apologetic about it and to accept the fact. (Thaaqib:Footnote by the Urdu translator)
