Ml. Saharanpuri on Shami and Badai'

[Mawlana Ashiq Ilahi Mirati writes,]

When writing a fatwa, Hadrat [Ml. Khalil Ahmad Saharanpuri] would often check Shami. If [Allm. Shami] would report a view [of an authority], he would consider it evidence but if it was the opinion of the author, he would not consider it evidence [in of itself]. Rather, he would critically analyse and research. He would say, ‘we are of one time -  they are men and we are men. His opinion is not evidence against us until his opinion is not supported by the view of the salaf’.

Calculating the travel distance for Londoners

It is clear in principle and in accordance to fiqh that a city is determined customarily based on the distance where the populace is settled irrespective of the size [of the population] and the wide distance they are spread; all of it is considered one city. A settlement which is customarily considered outside the city will be deemed a separate locality even if it is contiguous.
