Sayyid Abul A'la Al-Mawdudui
One of the chief architects of contemporary Islamic resurgence, was the an
outstanding Islamic thinker and writer of his time. He devoted his life to
expound the meaning and message of Islam and to organise a collective movement
to establish the Islamic Order. In this struggle, he had to pass through all
kinds of sufferings.
Between 1948-67, he spent a total of five years in different prisons of
Pakistan. In 1953, he was also sentenced to death by a Martial Law court for
writing a 'seditious' pamphlet, this sentence being later commuted to life
imprisonment. In 1941, he founded Jama'at-I Islami, of which he remained Amir,
until 1972 and which is one of the most prominent Islamic movements of our day.
He authored more than one hundred works on Islam, both scholarly and popular,
and his writings have been translated into more than forty languages.
