Imam Ahmad Raza Khan (RA) of Barailley, UP

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Tuesday 13th November, 2007

ala hazrat stampNo tribute to Imam Ahmad Raza Radi Allahu anhu could be complete without understanding the sustained restlessness of the Imam in providing true leadership throughout his life, when he was faced with leading the Muslims in a fragile moment in the history of Islam in the Indo-Pak sub-continent. The continued emergence of false sects like the Qadianis, Wahabis, and other sects which sought to prove that Almighty Allah indulges in falseness – Ma’aazallah, Summa Ma’aazallah – proved a genuine threat when these sects began imitating unsuspecting but uneducated Muslims into their fold. It was against such a background that Imam Ahmed Raza Radi Allahu anhu rose forth to defend the true Islamic principles as a scholarly giant, and in doing so, also succeeded in securing a place in the Urdu language as a literary giant in Na’athia Kalam.

As a devout Sufi, A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza Radi Allahu anhu was awarded the Ijaazah and Khilafat (Certificate of Spiritual Successorship) in the Qadiriya Silsila (Order), as well as in 13 other branches of Sufism. As an author, Imam Ahmad Raza Khan Radi Allahu anhu has left to his credit more than a 1,000 books on 50 different subjects ranging from Tafseer, Logic, Grammar, Literature, Islamic Jurisprudence, Education, Sociology, Astronomy, Mathematics, Physics, History, Science of History, Engineering, Biographies, Philosophy, Mysticism to Persian, Arabic, Urdu and Hindi Literature. more here and here.
