“The Past five hundred years of Islamic history cannot produce the like of Maulana Kashmiri" [Dr. Muhammad Iqbal]

Who could have explained the excellence of Maulana Anwar Shah Kashmiri better than the poet of the East, Dr. Muhammad Iqbal? Maulana Kashmiri was the teacher of the teachers and was the personification of Islamic knowledge. The universal message of Islam has always produced individuals that are totally devoted to the Islamic cause and spend their entire lives serving Allah’s mission on Earth. The renowned Muslim scholars have used different methods to convey the message of Islam and fight evil, disbelief, hypocrisy and oppression throughout history. The Ulama of Deoband can truly be credited with preserving the true teachings of Islam, as taught by the Quran and Hadith, and fighting evil and oppression by means of knowledge.

Through knowledge, it was believed that the Muslim heart and mind will be reactivated with the same emotions and intentions possessed by his fore fathers, the true defenders of Islam. Amidst this process of safeguarding Islam, Darul Uloom Deoband produced such lofty scholars and elite Muslim intellectuals that had been the glory and honor of the Muslim past. One of these illustrious personalities was Maulana Muhammad Anwar Shah Kashmiri.

Mufti Taqi Usmani says: "A unique kind of happiness would come over my father’s face when the name of Hadhrat Shah Sahib was heard and he would remember him with utmost respect and love" (Akabir Deoband Kia They?, p. 41). Allama Kashmiri was a favorite of his teachers and students. His peers loved him and one and all came to him to solve those academic misunderstandings that can only be deciphered by one of the most knowledgeable scholar of the times. One remains astonished after reading the accounts of his heightened knowledge, acute memory and profound understanding of Deen. Saints like Maulana Abdul Qadir Raipuri witnessed his excellence and said: "Indeed Hadhrat Shah Sahib is a sign from the signs of Allah" (Akabir-e-Ulama-e-Deoband, p. 98). read more

An entire childhood
is spent in utter misery.
A youth scream echoes,
A mother's tears in vain,
A father helpless,
Blood and tears flows like raging rivers, the world stands by and watches,
Some in despair and tears,
others in laughter,
Why do you not come to my aid?
Is it that,
I am not human enough for you?

The color of our blood is the same.
Basic human rights we both demand,
We both dream,
to soar into the skies,
to reach new heights.
Then what is my sin?
Is it that,
I am not human enough for you? read more
