At age 5 his father was martyred. His first ghaibat started. He worked through representatives then. One of his letters read Mohammed ibn Said your father was lucky that he had such a pure life and pure death. He tried hard in our way. You and I are both sad at his passing. This is the will of Allah and we have to bow our heads in front of this. I would like for you to be my representative in his stead. It is his good fortune that he has left such a nice child after him. Shaikh Mufeed Ibn Rehman got a letter from the Imam that said Oh my brother who has been guided rightly. An alim can by good deeds reach a place where and Imam calls him his brother.
