Hadrat Imâm-i Rabbânî says in the 65th letter of the first volume of his Maktûbât:

This letter, written to Khân-i a’zâm, expresses regret over the situation Islam is in today and over the persecution which Muslims are suffering:

May Allâhu ta’âlâ increase your strength! May He help you in your struggles against the enemies of Islam in order to promulgate His religion. Mukhbir-i sâdiq [1] (Muhammad, ‘’alaihi wa ’alâ âlihi minassalawâti afdaluhâ wa minatteslîmâti akmaluhâ’ said, “Islam commenced in a gharîb and lonely state. During the latter times, it will relapse into its state of gharîb (lonely, forsaken, left alone) as it was when it commenced. How lucky for the Muslims who are gharîb and lonely!” During the time of the previous government (the time of Akbar Shah) Muslims were so gharîb that unbelievers used to slander Islam openly and make fun of Muslims. They used to express their irreligiousness and praise unbelievers and disbelief in bazaars and markets. It was forbidden for the Muslims to do [to say and write about] most of Allah’s commandments. Those who performed acts of worship and obeyed Islam were being censured and slandered.

Beauties hide away their cheeks, Satan is feigning reluctance;
So astonished I am, almost verging on craziness.
