The knowledge and erudition of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam – In the opinion of the scholars of the world

What can we say about the erudition of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) when his own teachers and his spiritual mentor is acknowleding the mastery of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) over the Islamic sciences. 

 

One of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam’s (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) teachers is Hadhrat ‘Abdul Hayy Firangi Mahalli (May Allah shower His Mercy on him).  He is considered an Imam of jurisprudence.  He has written explanatory notes on classic tomes of jursprudence like Sharh Waqaya and Muatta Imam Muhammad.  These notes are enough proof of his acumen.  He is also considered the leader in logic and has written many books/booklets about various sciences as well.  He mentions Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) in one of his books in these words:

 

Translation:  I have written this booklet when intelligent, one with glowing heart and illuminated mind Maulvi Anwaarullah bin Maulvi Shujauddin of Hyderabad used to study with me.  (Matla’ Ul Anwaar, pg. no. 13)

 

His spiritual mentor Hadhrat Haji Imdaadullah Muhajir Makki (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) was among the saints and greatest lovers of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  He writes in the foreword of Anwaare Ahmadi, a famous book of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him):  (Translation) The scholar of the world, the most unique one of this age…the one in whom the outward and inward sciences have been combined, the gnostic of Almighty Allah Maulvi Muhammad Anwaarullah Hanafi Chishti...”.

 

Hadhrat Haji Imdaadullah Muhajir Makki (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) wrote the foreword to a Persian booklet of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) and he praised him a lot in this booklet.  He indicated that there is nothing objectionable in this book and that “Anwaarullah” is enough for the seekers of the Shariah and the Tariqah and whoever traverses the spiritual path in the shade of his illuminations will surely reach the desired destination with the help of Almighty Allah.  (Anwaar Ut Tamjeed, pg. no. 140; published in 1341 Hijri, Shamsul Islam Press, Hyderabad, Deccan).

 

The praise that these elders have showered on Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) is in fact divinely inspired and is very comprehensive.  If we try to explain a single word from them, it wil require a different book in and of itself.
