Naseer e Jee ye Jauhar Guimo Shul Sakhti lo Daigus Na Uyam Deedare Badalo lo Uyam Ji gor Fida Sultan
Said in 1940s and proved it.
Our most respected and most beloved teacher professor Dr. Allamah Nasir uddin Nasir Hunzai leaves this World:
O Beloved Teacher what can I say on this time of separation and sadness. You were our teacher for three generations. My father learnt a lot from you and worked together as your best friend until his demise. My wife Dr. Jamila and my sons Shah Ardabeel Baig and Taweel Ali also learnt from you, and so were thousands and thousands who directly got enlightened from your true Knowledge.
We all are sad in your separation, O our Beloved Teacher.
What I learnt from you is much, much greater wealth of knowledge and wisdom compared to the Five degrees that I acquired from the universities of this material world.
You in your personality were our best university, our best learning centre and our way to progress in true Knowledge.
For many of us you were a miracle of Allah for us.
Throughout the Ismaili history, scholars and dais sacrificed their lives for Noor Imammat. You were the best among all of our times, serving two Imams of the Time for 8 decades.
There is no match to your greatest literary contributions to the contemporary Ismaili thought process of our times in particular and mystic Sufism in general and common to all humankind.
Your greatest contributions to develop and preserve Burushaski language will always remain recorded in Golden Worlds.
The World will remember you for many centuries to come and all your great literature will spread all over the world…

Nasir’s Love Book will be known to the whole World.
