SHAH WALIYULLAH (1702-1763)was among the
later scholars who carried the traditions of Al-Ghazali and Imam Shatibi in
combining the essential of Shari'ah, its understanding, development and
interpretation to the issues and problems of life. He like Al-Ghazzali took deep
stock of Akhira as the explaining point of the relationship between worldly
existence and the Hereafter in a meaningful way.
Shah Wali Ullah directed his teachings towards reorienting the Muslim society on
the basis of social justice and removing inequalities and iniquitous
distribution of wealth. He established several branches of his school at Delhi
for effective dissemination of his ideas.
