About

Unless stated otherwise, the fatwas and answers to questions are taken from the writings of Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai (Damat Barakatuhum) who is a khalifah of Shaykh Maseehullah Khan (rahmatullahi alayh), one of the foremost khalifahs of the great Mujaddid Shaykh Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullah alayhi) (d.1943). The articles authored by “Mujlisul Ulama” are also by him. There’s some more information regarding him here.

The impact of the work of the Akaabir Ulama of Deoband in terms of their reformation of hundreds of millions of Muslims throughout the world, their scholarly contribution to every science of Deen – Fiqh, Hadith, Tafseer, etc. and their status as flag-bearers of every effort of Deen – Tasawwuf, Jihaad, Tableegh, etc. bears ample testimony to the fact that they were amongst those Mujaddids (Revivers) whom Allah (azza wa jal) sends periodically in order to revive the original pristine teachings of the Deen – their status as Mujaddids also recognised by accepted authorities in Sunni scholarship in the Arab world such as Allamah Kawthari. 

(See http://reliablefatwas.com/allamah-kawtharis-tribute-to-the-scholars-of-india/)

The great Arab scholar, Shaykh Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah, succinctly described their revival work at the time, when their impact had yet to pervade the furthest reaches of the world:

“The great madrasah of Deoband is [like] a radiant sun that has illuminated various parts of India. It revived the Prophetic way (sunnah) academically, practically and in terms of suluk, and it removed the darkness of innovation (bid’ah), which had amassed in those lands for a lengthy time. It stripped the pools of knowledge and shari’ah from all that was alien to them in the same way that it stripped the suluk of the Sufis from new customs — such as sama’ and stringed instruments and their like from the gatherings of bid’ ah that were prevalent in India in those days.

It replaced those innovations with clear and radiant sunnah — in terms of teaching and studying, suluk and propagation — until it (the madrasah) became a powerful, great and authentic source of light from which came droves of god-fearing (rabbaniyyin) ulama, who combined the excellence of knowledge and action (’amal), while adhering to the sunnah and eliminating bid’ah.”

Who are the Most Recent Mujaddids (Revivers of the Deen)?

    I just came across your site and Masha’Allah an extraordinary one it is. I, too, follow Allamah A.S. Desai Saheb as I was accepted as his mureed when I met him earlier this year in South Africa. Great to see another website devoted to Allamah Saheb.

      Asalaamualaikum,
      Please let me know how you pulled of the very difficult task of becoming Hadhrat Mufti Sahebs Mureed.
      By Mureed do you mean Mureed (follower) you follow The Majlis closely ? or do you mean Mureed as in you took Ba’yah with Hadhrat.

      Wasalaam

    Assalaamu `Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh.

    I applaud the Admin of this website for the wonderful Khidmah he is doing.

    The Internet in these days has become a tool many people use to acquire some little bit of `Ilm; however, due to the preponderance of Baatil websites spreading Kufr beliefs and practices foreign to Islaam, the seekers deviate from the Siraat-ul-Mustaqeem. For this reason, every website such as this one in which the original Islaam is propagated is greatly needed and should be greatly appreciated.

    May Allaah Ta`aalaa accept, and may he grant the founder of the website and all of us the ability to speak the Haqq in its entirety, without fearing people, and speak about EVERY facet of Islaam, be it Salaah, Zakaah, Saum, Hajj, and especially those facets which are being hidden away today, such as Jihaad, slavery, Ta`addud Azwaaj, etc. Aameen.

    Was-Salaam.

    May Allah Ta’ala spread the knowledge of this website, and our ‘Ulama e Haq, across the world for all to benefit! May Allah Ta’ala allow these sites brimming with the brilliance of our ‘Ulama e Haq to crush the brains of baatil and haraam!

    Share the knowledge of our ‘Ulama e Haq and, Insha Allah, Allah Ta’ala will count us among the pious.

    Please do remember me in your duas.
    Asad.

      Not that I’m aware of – most likely he has none. He very very rarely takes bayah – this was told to me recently by one of his mureeds.

    This is the opinion of Moulana Dawood Seedat the Khalifah of Hadhrat Moulana Yunus Patel Sahib Rahmatullah Alayh.

    JazakAllah.

    If Hadhrat Moulana Desai Saheb of P.E is the Mufti that you follow then you must strictly adhere to his fataawa in all matters and there will be goodness for you in this.

    Please remember me in your pious duas
