About The Author
Ashraf 'Ali Thanawi (1863-1943) was a leading Islamic scholar and Sufi from India, whose popularity continues. After graduating from the famous seminary Dar al-'Ulum Deoband, he spent his life engaged in the scholarly life of the madrasah and as a spiritual guide.
As a scholar and Sufi, he wrote books on a wide variety of subjects, both legal and spiritual, from beginners’ level to advanced, and inspired many scholars, including those Indian scholars who would contribute to the establishment of Pakistan.
He was born 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-Umma ('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.
Mawlana's Teachers were all great luminaries of their time. The most important amongst them was Mawlana 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 disciple of Haji Imadadullah.
Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanawi spent his entire life serving deen in every field. He passed away in Rajab 1362 A.H. (1943).
