A master of Islamic spirituality, Mawlana Thanawi was 'widely considered the pre-eminent Suf i of modern India'. His approach to tasawwuf was in complete harmony with the Qur’an and hadith.

Maulana Thanvi conceived of Islam as having two points of focus, Shari'a  and the Tariqa (path, derived from religious experience). Thus he accepted Sufism with its form of discipline and the role of the ‘ulama’ in interpreting the four schools of Islamic law. The Qur’an, the hadith, qiyas (analogical reasoning), and ijma‘ (consensus) provided the foundation of religious knowledge, but understanding them required the ‘ulama’ as guides.
 Uneducated Muslims could not make judgments on belief or practice. While accepting Sufism, he rejected numerous ceremonies and the authority of pirs who claimed sanctity by their descent rather than by their learning. Knowledge granted authority and not inheritance. Pilgrimages to saints’ tombs, and the annual death rites of a particular saint (the urs) also lay outside acceptable Islamic practice. Among the types of behavior seen as erroneous innovations was any social or religious practice that appeared to come from Hindu culture (Jones 60).

The scholars of Deoband purified Islamic mysticism in the Indian subcontinent from all un-Islamic elements and practiced a tasawwuf that earlier Muslims, such as Hasan al-Basri, Junayd al-Baghdadi, and ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani would advocate if they were living in the twentieth century. Pure, unadulterated Sufism is an important part of the Islamic faith. Dar al- ‘Ulum Deoband trained individuals to become rational scholars as well as sound practitioners of tasawwuf.

Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi was born in 1280 A.H. in the village of Thana Bowan. His desire for Deen was initiated by his initial ustaad Moulana Fateh Muhammed Saheb.Commonly referred to as Hakim al-Ummat ('Sage of the Ummah'), was a giant among the Islamic scholars of the twentieth century. He was a master in all branches of Islamic scholarship including Qur'an, Hadith, Fiqh and Tasawwuf. A prolific writer, he had more than a thousand publications to his credit. He wrote for the minimally literate as effectively as he did for scholars. Nearly a century later some of his books remain as popular as they were when originally published. 
Moulana's Teachers  were all great luminaries of their time. The most important amongst them was Moulana Muhammed Yaqub Saheb from whom he achieved the greatest amount of knowledge and spiritual benefit.
He learnt qiraat from the well-known Qari Muhammed Abdullah Saheb Muhajir Makki, during his student days in Deoband he desired to make a pledge on the hands of Moulana Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi but he ended becoming a desciple of Hajee Imadadullah.

Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi spent his entire life serving deen in every field. he passed away in Rajab 1362 A.H. (1943).
