Al Muhaddith Shah Abdul Aziz Dehlavi (1745 - 1823) was one of the great Sunni Islamic scholar scholars of Hadith in India.

The eldest son of Shah Waliullah RA was only 17 years old when Shah Waliullah died. After the death of Shah Waliullah, his son, Shah Abdul Aziz gradually became an outstanding figure among the Indian Muslims. Shah Abdul Aziz, having completed his necessary education assumed the responsibility of the principalship of the Madrash Rahimiya (Delhi). Thereafter, Shah Abdul Aziz devoted his life to teaching, to spiritual guidance, to delivering sermons and to writing books. Every Tuesday and Friday, he used to give public sermons on the premises of the Madrasah which was attended by Muslims and non-Muslims both. The Madrasah was a centre of traditional Islamic learning. As was the custom in those days, he started his education at the age of five with the study of the Noble Quran. Every biographer of Shah Abdul Aziz seems to have agreed that he finished his education in Tafsir, Hadith, Sarf (accidence), Nahw (Syntax), Fiqh, Usul-i-Fiqh (Principles of Jurisprudence), Mantiq (logic), Kalam and Aqaid (theology), Astronomy and Mathematics at the age of about fifteen years. He was taught especially by his father and by two of his father’s disciples, Shah Muhammad Ashiq and Khwajah Aminullah. His father held authority (ijazah) in all four existing mystic orders, the Naqshbandi, the Qadiri, the Suhrawardi and the Chisthti. Shah Abdul Aziz too obtained such Ijazah in all these orders from his father. He was also a poet of high merit and used to write poems and Ghazals. read more

While taxiing at an airport, the crew of an Air flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727. An irate female ground controller lashed out at the Air crew, screaming: "Air 2771, where the hell are you going! I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there.

I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between 'C' and 'D', but get it right!" Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour, and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, Air 2771?" "Yes ma'am," the humbled crew responded. Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out in Gatwick was definitely running high. Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to you once?"
