    Its a best struggle. It will be useful for followers and other Muslim ummah. I am observing that the "Tareeqat" is leaving gradually from Naqshbandis so there is need to protect actual "Tareeqat" by keeping followers on it as taught in Maktoobat Shareef. Kindly take efforts too to issue a concise magazine/ book on the topic. Jazakallah.
