Imam-e-Rabbani Mujaddid-e-Alf-e-Thani Shaikh Ahmed Sirhindi RA


I have been busy reading Syed Abul Hasan Ali Hasani Nadwi (Ali Mian) (RA)'s Tareekh-e-Dawat-o-Azeemat for many years.
My progress has been extremely slow.
I bought the books around 2000 and I am just finishing the fourth volume.

Writing of the series took even longer.
It began in 1954 and finished in 1989.
That is thirty five years.

Why did it take so long to write and why does it take long to read it?
There will be several reasons but the chief amongst them is the following.
Ali Mian RA chose to live mentally and spiritually in those times that he was writing about.
This made the writing slow and the resultant books are not easy to read for they take a long time to assimilate.
These are not mere history book - these are Islahi books too.
While reading them a person has to go throw an spiritual process.
That is not an easy task.
That is a difficult task.

One another implication of this bit of info is that Ali Mian RA's books are very difficult to assail.
Hence the west has simply ignored them.
They simply can not deal with them.

We must make the best use of this bit of info.

Personally it took me several attempts to finish the first volume.
I shall read the same chapters again and again and then get exhausted and leave the book for a long time.
I have finished the first volume twice and I am sure I have to do several readings more of the same.

Recently I finished the second volume and the third.
Second one is about Imam Ibn Taimiyyah RA and the third about Shaikh Muinuddin Chishti RA, Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya RA and Hazrat Makhdoom Sharfudding Yahya Muneeri RA.

Fourth one is about Imam-e-Rabbani Mujaddid-e-Alf-e-Thani Shaikh Ahmed Sirhindi RA.

There are so many things that I can talk about all of these personalities but shall not do so because all those goodies are cluttering my communication channel.

But I must add that I felt enormous love for Ali Mian RA for writing this series.

Deoband falls later in the same series of events that include Imam-e-Rabbani RA, Shah Waliullah RA and others.

Imam-e-Rabbani RA adopted the following modus operandi.
He campaigned with the influential people in the courts of the then kings and managed to persuade the power that be to adopt Islamic ways as far as the latter could do.
He was successful in his attempts.

Admission of Guilt


We need help of Allah SWT at every moment of life. Particularly a believer is acutely aware that he or she can not take even a single step without His help. We need Islam to navigate every second of our life. No one has better explanation of Islam than Deoband.

I have to say the above because the real purpose of the present thread was to discuss those issues where Deoband has not done its due.

There are a myriad such issues but I never came close to discussing them. There was fear. Fear of being termed a saboteur or an internal enemy.

Twin issues of monumental importance in this regard are, firstly, a predilection in Deoband attitude towards not accepting any good in alternative explanations of Islam and secondly not to take any criticism at face value.

But somewhere my deepest feelings might have beyrayed themselves. I say this because one day I got a shock when a very assertive and active Mufti told me that the news has gotten around that I am resentful of Deoband.

Darn! I do not resent Deoband. I shall, Lord willing, never will.

But that is what the impression got around.

Of course there nothing alarming about it for this sinner is really a small fry.
And if you are a small fry for good you are small fry for bad.
I can do only small damage to the Deen of Islam.

But even this will be misunderstood by the establishment.
Thus I have to be forthright once again - I am a Deobandi.
Even if Deoband outcasts me.
Not that they have any such plan, to the best of my knowledge.

Then there is this issue of the points that Deoband is not covering.
In that regard I am determined to keep pestering Deoband to take notice of issues faced by Muslims in modern life.

No, Deoband has not done enough on that front.

Salafis are inheritors of beloved Prophet (PBUH).
So are the Barelwis. Better than the Salafis.
So are the Deobandis. The best of the three.

About Enemies


Deoband is a school of thought, an interpretation of Islam and a revival movement of Islam.
There are other similar efforts.
I shall not go into comprehensive specifics of these other efforts and their attitudes towards Deoband.
But it is inevitable that they will adopt a varying degree of competition and even resentment towards Deoband.
Some will adopt very openly hostile attitude.
They will try to do harm in various ways.
Most benign of these ways will be academic.
Be that as it may.
It does not mean that we get discouraged or distracted from our task.
At the end truth shall prevail and hence our task is to stick to the truth with our life.
To make our course correction is not a privilege that we should bestow on our enemies.

The Miracle Yesterday


The Jum'a yesterday came with a miracle.
Our Imam made a, mildly, political speech before the Friday Sermon.
He said that the Indian government has very nefarious designs about Muslim personal law.
I hope Deoband wakes up for good.
