Until meeting Abdul Sattar Edhi, I had never met a saint. Within a few moments of shaking hands, I knew I was in the presence of moral and spiritual greatness. 65 years ago, he gave up everything and stood on a street corner in Karachi and begged for money for an ambulance, raising enough to buy a battered old van. Today, he owns the biggest ambulance service of the world, has opened orphanages, homes for mentally ill, drug rehabilitation centers, hostels for abandoned women, feeding the poor and burying the dead all over Pakistan. His compassion is boundless and no Pakistani since Jinnah has commanded the same reverence. May Allah bless him with a long and healthy life.
