About the Author:
He was born in Banda, India, on Tuesday 26 Zul Qada 1264 A.H, author of many
famous works and a great scholar of his time. He was a descendant Sayyidina Abu
Ayyub Ansari (R.A).
His predecessors emigrated from Madinah Munawwarah to Hirat, then to Lahore,
Delhi and finally to Sihala and Firangi Mahal near Lucknow. Pious and noble
scholars always inhabited this locality. Maulana Abdul Hayy began memorising the
Noble Qur'an at the age of five. He was endowed with an outstanding memory from
childhood to the extent that in his own words, he remembers the time when he was
beaten at the age of three.
His students were completely satisfied with his methodology. Maulana Ni’matullah,
his teacher, used to extol his praises generously. Due to intense love for
writing, he wrote more than a hundred books on many subjects like Arabic
grammar, morphology, logic, Jurisprudence and Hadith etc. He was offered the
post of Justice after his father’s demise but refused, considering the dangers
of the occupation and being content with the little possessions he had. He felt
that had he accepted the offer, it would have impeded his teaching and writing
career. One of the great bounties of Allah Ta’ala upon him was his excellence
and compatibility with the science of Hadith and Jurisprudence of Hadith. He
always chose a moderate, accepting the view of the Jurists as long as there was
adequate proof from Quran and Hadith.
He passed away in Rabi ul Awwal 1304 A.H. at the young age of 39 and was buried
in the graveyard of his ancestors.
