Earlier in this book, we learnt that A'la Hadrat (alaihir rahmah) gained proficiency in more that fifty branches of knowledge. With this, A'la Hadrat (alaihir rahmah) wrote many books on various aspects of Islam. A'la Hadrat (alaihir rahmah) was a genius writer. He wrote numerous books and treatises in Arabic, Persian, and Urdu on diversified topics.

Professor Abdul Shakoor Shad, Kabul University, Afghanistan, said: "The research works of Imam Ahmed Raza Khan are worth presenting. There is due need that Historical and Cultural Societies of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran together with other such institutions keep all his writings duly catalogued in their libraries."

His Divinely bestowed intelligence was such, that when A'la Hadrat (alaihir rahmah) completed a quarter of any given book at the feet of a teacher, he used to study and memorize the remainder of the book by himself. It is recorded that he completed an Arabic commentary on the book, "Hidaayatun Nahw", on Arabic Syntax, when he was only 8 years old!
