At that time this humble translator had no access to a computer anddid not know how to work on it. He used his old portable mechanical typewriter, which was inhis use earlier. It had its limitations, including his inaccessibility to the matter intended for  publication during the process of printing. This posed many problems, which could not beovercome then. When the book was published, my brothers in faith appreciated it whole-heartedly. In all humility, this  faqir  is grateful to them for the encouragement he received.As this  faqir  has already stated in his notes in the published book, he was irked by Azad’suncalled-for criticism of the Mahdavi beliefs and practices, emanating from his [Azad’s]inadequate knowledge of the Mahdavi tenets and precepts he had gathered from the elements,hostile to the Mahdavi Sect. This  faqir  did all he could, despite his limited knowledge andresources, to defend the Faith. The brothers in faith welcomed it.Some of them criticised this  faqir  behind his back. Some others were sincere in their criticism of the work and came up with useful and invaluable suggestions to improve the work. This  faqir  isgrateful to them. He has accepted their suggestions with thanks and did the needful by revisingthe book in the light of their criticism. This was made easy because these thoughtful critics brought the mistakes they had found to the notice of this  faqir  , who preserved the suggestions bynoting them down when informed. The criticism of those who did not bring their views to thenotice of this  faqir  could not be taken into consideration, as the hearsay reports of their criticismwere sketchy and unconvincing. If these honourable brothers had taken care to communicate their views directly, orally or in writing, it would have been a boon during the revision. So, this  faqir  respectfully requests his critics to communicate their views properly. This  faqir  does not resentcriticism; he welcomes it. Thank you.--Faqir Syed Ziaullah YadullahiBangalore,March 16, 2006. iii  PUBLISHER'S NOTE  HOLY ANGELS OF HIGH HEAVENS  is the second English book being published by    IDARA- E-SHAMSIA on the history and tenets of the Mahdavis. We published the first book   MAJALIS- E-KHAMSA in 1997. This is apart from a large number of Urdu books numbering over 85, wehave published, since its inception in 1921.This book is based on excerpts pertaining to Mahdavis from the celebrated book  TAZKIRA bylate Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. Hazrat Syed Ziaullah has pointed out the mistakes, which creptinto the TAZKIRA due to non-availability of Mahdavia literature to Maulana Azad while thelatter compiling it. The corrections have been made on the basis of the annotations he hascollected from authentic books, including those of the Mahdavia community. Every point has been placed in its true perspective and relevant historical background. It is hoped that this book will help the new generation, which, except in rare cases, is not well versed in the knowledge of Urdu, Arabic and Persian, in seeing the true face of the persecutors of the innocent  fuqara of theMahdavi Giroh .  Idara-e-Shamsia thanks Hazrat Syed Ziaullah Sahib for his permission to publish his work. Our thanks are also due to Janab Abulfatah Syed Jalaluddin, Editor,  NOOR-E-HAYAT    and JanabShaik Chand Sajid who helped us in bringing out this book so nicely.The financier of the publication of this book wants to   remain unidentified. This is in the besttraditions of the Mahdavia stalwarts who abhorred fame and ostentation. But Allah knowseverything and may He in His Glory reward the donor with iman and His vision. May Allah also bless the late Hazrat Syed Ameeruddin Sahib for whose isal-e-sawab this book is being published!Sept 5, 1998For  ldara-e-Shamsia  Nazim: Faqeer Syed Mubarak Yadullahi. iv
