Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi
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).
'In most of their secret talks there is no good: But if one exhorts to a deed of charity or justice or conciliation between men, (Secrecy is permissible): To him who does this, seeking the good pleasure of Allah, We shall soon give a reward of the highest (value)'
TM Qur'an An-Nisa (The Women) 4:114
