Ml Ashraf Ali Thanwi RA
(1863 – 1943)

A prominent Muslim scholar from the Indo-Pak Sub-continent. Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi graduated from the Darul Uloom Deoband in 1884. After his graduation, Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi taught religious sciences in Kanpur for fourteen years. Over a short period of time, he acquired a reputable position as a religious scholar, of Sufism among other subjects. His teaching attracted numerous students and his research and publications became well known in Islamic institutions. During these years, he traveled to various cities and villages, delivering lectures in the hope of reforming people. Printed versions of his lectures and discourses would usually become available shortly after these tours. Until then, few Islamic scholars had had their lectures printed and widely circulated in their own lifetimes. The desire to reform the masses intensified in him during his stay at Kanpur.

Eventually, Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi retired from teaching and devoted himself to reestablishing the spiritual centre (khanqah) of his shaikh in Thana Bhawan. His students and disciples settled in all parts of South Asia. read more

While we aim to deepen our spirituality during Ramadan, the act of fasting also has a social function. It brings Muslims together as a community. When we break the fast, we eat together and share our reflections with others. We become more friendly towards others.

A zookeeper is ordering new animals. As he fills out the forms, he types “two mongeese”. That doesn’t look quite right, so he tries two mongoose, and then two mongooses.

Giving up, he types, “One mongoose, and while you’re at it, send another one.”
