Background: It was during a Haj pilgrimage, in Makkah, that Allamah Shaykh Saleh Kamaal, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, presented A'laHadrat, Shaykh Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, 'alayhi ar-Rahman w'al-Ridwan, with five questions pertaining to I'lm-e-Ghayb (Knowledge of the Unseen). A'la Hadrat, 'alayhi ar-Rahman, had to answer these five questions within two days. It so happened that on the following day, A'la Hadrat, 'alayhi ar-Rahman, contracted a heavy fever. Despite this setback he still managed to answer all the relevant questions on the topic in a comprehensive manner.
In fact, A'la Hadrat, 'alayhi ar-Rahman, presented such detailed answers to the questions of I'lm-e-Ghayb, that it turned out to be a complete treatise on its own. He named this book, "Ad Dawlat al-Makkiyah bil Maddat il Ghaybiya." The learned Ulama (scholars) of Haramayn Sharifayn were totally astounded when Shaykh Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, 'alayhi ar-Rahman, presented this book to them on time. He completed this book (written in classical arabic) of approximately 400 pages in only 8 hours.
