Hazrat Allamah Khalid Mahmud sahib DB


Hazrat Allamah Khalid Mahmud sahib's ancestors were from Amritsar ( India) but he was born in Qasoor district Lahore. He had the honour of studying with some of the great Scholars of the time including Shaikhul-Hadees Molana Zakariyyah , Shaikhul-Islam Molana Shabbir Ahmed Usmaani , Molana Badre 'Aalam and Molana Shamsul-Haq Afghani sahib rahimahumullah . Hazrat Allaamah sahib also had the good fortune of enjoying the company of Mashaaikh like Syed Ataullah Shah Bukhari, Maulana Ahmad Ali Lahori and Hakim ul Islam Qari Muhammad Tayyeb Saheb Rahimahumullah. Along with the pursuit of his religious and Islamic knowledge , Allaamah sahib went on to do LLB and other Masters degrees in Persian , Arabic and Islamic studies. He later completed a PHD at Birmingham University as well. In the 1940s , He moved to Sialkot to teach at Murray College before moving to MAO College Lahore and Punjab University to take up posts as a Professor.

Hazrat Allaamah sahib also joined the Tanzeem Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jama’ah and wrote for their magazine ‘Da’wat’ for many years. Many of these writings which were often answers to questions from the public on complex issues then were compiled and formed the basis for one of Allaamah sahib's priceless works ; 'Abqaat. In the 1960s , Allamah sahib came to UK to complete his PHD at Birmingham University . Then in the 1970s moved to and established an academy in Manchester. He worked with other senior ulema to establish Jami'atul-Ulema Britaaniyah for the purpose of keeping Muslims united , finding solutions to their problems and addressing their concerns.

Work for the cause of Islam


Hazrat Allaamah sahib served as a senior member of the Shari’ah Appellate Branch of the Supreme Court of Pakistan during President Musharraf's time. He has also been a world renowned debater , having debated many of the biggest names among the deviated sects including Christians , Shias , Qadianis , Brailvis and Ahle-Hadees. He started debating from a very young age and had astonishingly participated in his first debate around the age of 15, with a Qadiani.


Some of his famous debates include:

  • Debate with the official Mujtahid from Iran in Durban on Taqiyyah.
  • Debate in Nigeria with the Qadianis
  • Debate with some of the most senior Barelwi scholars in Sheffield UK in 1979.

Allah granted success to Allamah sahib in all these and many other debates and his opponents were left deeply ashamed in their communities. The Muslim community of SA is also indebted to Hazrat Allamah sahib for his help in getting the Qadiani Case resolved in Cape Town, where they were declared out of the fold of Islam.

Hazrat Allamah sahib is famed for his unique insight, razor sharp mind and piercing intellect. Allah SWT has blessed him with an extraordinary memory that he still remembers and quotes freely long passages from many books. Hazrat Allamah sahib , despite his advanced age , is still punctual with all his Salahs and fasting and performs the entire Taraweeh Salaah standing. He has dedicated his entire life to the service and protection of Deen. He has also been conducting a weekly Dars of Quran in Manchester which goes back to the 1970s. Many ulema regularly attend this gathering and benefit from the pearls and gems which flow during these blessed gatherings.

Works


Hazrat Allaamah sahib has written over 100 books , pamphlets and forwards to many important works of other senior Ulema , including an 10 volume masterpiece called

  • Mutaalia’ah Barelwiyyat.
  • Aathaar-ut-Tanzeel on Tafseer,
  • Aathaar-ul Hadith on Hadeeth,
  • Aathaar-ut-Tashree on Fiqh,
  • Aathaar-ul-Ihsaan on Tasawwuf.

These are all in two volumes each and are written to create a comprehensive awareness and understanding of those respective topic especially in those who have not studied these topics in the traditional manner in Darl-ul-ulooms. These books are also extremely beneficial for ulema. His other major writings include;

  • Mutaali'ah Qadianiyyat in four volumes about Khatme-Nubuwwat , ěsa alaihissalaam and Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani.
  • Maqame Hayaat about ( Nabi's Barzakhi life.)
  • Khulafa e Rashideen
  • 'Abqaat.
  • Ma'yaare Sahaabiyyat; written for the Pakistan National Assembley in refutation of criticism laid against sahaabah by Shias.
  • Shah Ismail Shaheed.
  • Tajalliyate-Aftaab ( this is a masterly refutation of a Shia scholar's criticism of sahaabah by Shia Molvi Mohammad Husain Dhakkoo ).

Some of Hazrat Allaamah sahib's students have also published books containing proceedings of some of Hazrat's memorable debates especially against Qadianis.
There are many other books currently under print as well. Syed Ata-Ullah Shah Bukhari had a lot of affection and admiration for Allaamah sahib and was very instrumental in mentoring him in the field and cause of Khatme-Nabuwwat.

Shah sahib once said, "If a Fitnah appears at Asr , Khalid Mahmud will be able to refute it by Maghrib."

According to Mufti Zar Wali Khan sahib, "There is no senior scholar of the Deobandi world like Allaamah Khalid Mahmud sahib to defend Deobandiyyat and the Aqidah of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jama’ah. Allaamah Saheb is the most senior and most intelligent scholar in the Islamic world today."
(Mufti Zar Wali Khan sahib).

He is currently over 90 years old and we make Du’a to Allah SWT that may Allah grant him many more years with good health. Ameen.
