See the footnote.

This was translated elsewhere as:

Hazrat `Allamah ibn `Abidin [rh] on the footnote of his internationally renowned book Raddul Muhtarul Ma'roof says that Ziyadi has reported that if any person loses any one of his belongings and he wishes for Almighty Allah to return it to him, he should stand on a high place facing the Qibla and make Fatiha and send the reward to the Holy Prophet [sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam] and to Sayyid Ahmad bin Alwan [rh] and say,


يَاسَيِّدِىْ اَحْمَدُ يَابْنَ عَلْوَانَ اِنْ تَرُدَّ عَلَىَّ ضَالَّتِىْ وَاِلاَّ نَزَعْتُكَ

مِنْ دِيْوَانِ اْلاَوْلِيآءِ فَاِنَّ اللهَ تَعَالىَ يَرُدُّ عَلىَ

“O my leader Ahmad! O son of Alwan! If you do not return my lost item, then it is fine, otherwise I will remove your name from the register of the Awliyah


مَنْ قَالَ ذَالِكَ ضَالَّتَه‘ بِبَرْكَتِهِ اُجُوْرِىْ مَعَ زِيَادَةٍ

With the Barkah of this amal and that Wali Allah, the lost thing will be returned.”

[Rad al Muhtar ala Dur al-Mukhtar Pg.334 Vol.3]


Insha'Allah a better translation will follow.

salamu alaykum,

akhi faqir, is that footnote even from ibn Abidin rahimuallah? Where footnotes even used back in his time? I asked an arabic speaking brother to check his ebook edition for that quote and he did not find it in there. Maybe the footnote is from the publisher or something like that...
Whatever the case, it should be checked properly before we "use" it.

It is found in the following printed editions:

dar kotob al-ilmiyyah, vol.6/pg.447
bulaq edition, vol.3/pg.324
dar al-fikr edition, vol.4/pg.475

I therefore think it unlikely that a publisher has added it.

Allah knows best.

True. That then is a beautiful finding. I wonder what the deobandis have to say regarding ibn abidin after that. :)
