Objection 3: Was the Author senile when he wrote this?

...It was in the year 1353 A.H. that an eminent Sheikh, who is my patron and for whom I have every respect, enjoined me to compile a book containing stories of the companions.of the Holy Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam), with special reference to the Faith and Practices of the women and children of his time. The main idea underlying this behest was that Muslim mothers, while going to bed at night, instead of telling myths and fables to their children, may narrate to them such real and true tales of the golden age of Islam that would create in them an Islamic spirit of love and esteem for Sahabah, and thereby improve their 'Imaan'; and the proposed book may, thus, be a useful substitute for the current- story books. It became essential for me to comply with tlie desire of the Sheikh, for, besides being under moral debt and obligation to him for his immense beneficence, I consider the goodwill of such godly people to be the source of success in this world and the Hereafter. I knew my shortcomings and difficulties and, therefore, had been postponing the execution of this work for four years, when in Safar 1357 A.H., it so happened that I was advised by the doctors to suspend my regular duty of teaching for some time. I decided to utilize this period of rest for complying with the long-standing desire of the Sheikh, with the belief that even if my attempt did not Game up to his expectation, it would anyhow be a pleasant engagement for me and one likely to bring me spiritual blessings, in addition... 
As clear in the words of the Shaykh the incident occured in 1357 (Hijrah) and here are the years of compilation of the various booklets:

1Hikayat-e-Sahabah (Stories of the Sahabah) was compiled in Shawwal 1358 by Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi (RA)

2Fazail-e-Quran (Virtues of the Quran) was compiled in Dhul-Hijjah 1348 by Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi (RA)

3Fazail-e-Namaz (Virtues of Salah) was compiled in Shawwal 1358 by Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi (RA)

4Fazail-e-Zikr (Virtues of Dhikr) was compiled in Muharram 1358 by Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi (RA)

5Fazail-e-Tabligh (Virtues of Tabligh)was compiled in Safar 1350 by Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi (RA)

6Fazail-e-Ramadhan (Virtues of Ramadan) was compiled in Ramadhan 1349 by Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi (RA)

So those objecting have converted his temporary illness of 1357 into senility and applied it across decades and what was temporary illness? 
Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi (RA)  writes in his Atuo-biography that this temporary illness was nosebleed and he was advised to not engage in heavy Academic work due to it and rest!

Fazail e Amaal has been written when he was advised by doctors to stop the Mental work.

Answer :

The criticiser has concealed the facts and Truth.

1.This was not any mental disease.The disease was of Heamorrides/Piles. But 100 years back as Science was not developed so Hakeems use to advice for taking Bed Rest both Physical and Mental.(Autobiography of Maulana Zakaria vol 1 Page 567)

1.Fazail e Amaal is collection of Seven books and has been written at different Time. This Advice was given at the time of book Stories of Sahaba.
Stories of Shaba in Shawwal 1358
Fazaile E Quran in Zil Hijj 1348

The criticiser has unsuccessfully tried to add it on whole Fazail e Amaal.And that too disease was of Heamerroids and not any mental illness.
