I am grateful to my ‘Taya abu’, my dear parents, my beloved wife and especially my elder brother

‘Shafqat bhai’ who is as kind as his name. All of them supported and encouraged me always to

accomplish the arduous research. I’m sure that their motivations nurtured me to approach this

mileage. I dedicate my research to all of them. Besides, I will never forget the affection and

mentoring of my loving teacher Mr. Hasham Raza (Late), whose dynamic personality never let me

down. He was a fountain of fatherly and friendly affections, always ready to render assistance to

his disciples (May Allah rest his soul in eternal peace). May Allah bless them all without their

inspiration I could not have completed my research work.

I would like to thank my family, without whose support I might not have been able to do even a
