Note: Nine books of islmaiat from starting class to class 8 have been published in Sindhi language after translation. Two books Insan-e-Kamil and Allah se Mulaqat have also been translated in Sindhi language and shall be published in near future.
Because of these books, the name of Niaz Baig is now well known and is shining all over the world like a star. All these books are available in Islamic university “Al-Jamia-tul-Mustafa Al-Ilmia” of Qum. Main institutes of Qum city also demand these books and keep in their record. The books of our Trust are precious capital and are unique and un-exemplary as compared to the worth of books of Pakistani and Indian authors available here. If anyone has doubt, he can get information from there.
In Qum, our books are also available at “Madrisa Hujatia” and “Madrisa Imam Khomeni” which are specific for external common people and students. Complete sets of our books are available there. Urdu speaking students are getting benefit from these prestigious books. The sets of our books are also present in the famous Library of Imam Raza A.S in Mashhad Muqadas.

Even few Iraqi students have saved these as precious spiritual holy treasure.
The University of Baghdad is also in search of persons to translate these urdu books into Arabic. Scholars of India have ordered these books by post and the visitors for ziarat Roza e Imam Ali A.S are taking the books by hand from Najaf Ashraf. These books are written at peak level regarding logic, philosophy, ethics and knowledge of Irfan (to know Allah). Most of Shia scholars and ulema are not capable of writing books like ours. If anyone has doubt, can ask Pakistani ulema to understand and interpret these books? However those who have irfani taste and are fond of learning the teachings of this school of thought are comprehending these books and are realizing and making others realize the grand esteem and glory of Ahl-al-bait a.S.
Although some books have been written on manazra (comparative study) in India and Pakistan but the books of Trust are written at the peak level of knowledge that these have got the highest place in wisdom and intellect. 2.

12. Finance: (Budget):
All expenses related to Azadari programs, books, printing and construction of both buildings are met by members of the Trust and common momin wellwishers on daily, monthly and annually basis. There is no thought and consideration of Govt. or any other country’s aid. Also there is no concept of begging others. 10% expenses by common momin wellwishers and 90% by the members of the Trust are presented to before Maula (Imam) from their hardworking halal earning. All the Trust accounts are externally audited regularly. A land of 2 Acre has been purchased in Sindh for an Institution named “Maktaba-Tul-Mustafa” under the supervision of Trust chairperson ayatollah Muhammad Sadiq haideri. A strong building of an area 42×42 ft has been constructed over there. Teaching and training will be started in near future. That institution of Sindh has permanent status because it is the demand of the area. A management committee has been finalized according to the requirement of culture of Sindh.
But even then, those ignorant illetrate who are unable to support the trust try to overwhelm Trust and blame the Trust of indulging in having relation with agencies and . They have satanic belief of getting sawab (good reward from Allah) by showing enmity against the Trust and its members.
Note: Members of the Trust have been constrained to publish this report containg extra ordinary performance of Trust, otherwise we don’t need any pretention and presentation. And “hereafter and ultimate ending is for the pious”.
