Hazrat Anwaarullah Farooqui was born at Nanded during the month of Rabi Us Saani. Hazrat was named qazi Mohammed ShujaUddin by his father.

Hazrat anwaarUllah Farooqui served as a disciple and caliph to his father. Title names were fazeelath jung and khan bahadur.

One the most well-respected scholars

He learned the Quran by heart and was able to study the shorter works of the Quran with his teachers. He began with Shaykh Abd al-Halim al-Ansari al-Luknawi. Then he kept company of his son Shaykh Abd al-Hayy al Luknawi in Hyderabad.

He received a tafsir from Shaykh Abdullah al-Yamani, Tasawwuf, and spiritual wayfaring form his father. He was also described as having mastered a variety of Islamic sciences.

He made the pilgrimage in 1264 where he met Shaykh Haji Imdadullah Muhajir Makki who pledged allegiance to him and from whom he received ijazah.

Mahbub Ali Khan, sixth Nizam, selected him as his tutor. He transited in 1301 for his second pilgrimage, and in 1305, for a tertiary one, before taking up residence in Madinah the Illuminated, for three years.

In the year 1308, he returned to Hyderabad and was made a tutor by Osman Ali Khan. When the ruler of Deccan Mahbub Ali Khan died in 1329, Osman Ali Khan was the seventh Nizam. In 1332, he appointed Mawlana anwarullah, minister of Awqaf and gave him the title “Nawab Fazilat Jung.” 

He was cautious about wealth, posts, and positions. He was humble and stoic. He was a good friend and would attend funerals. He was a person who believed in goodness and righteousness. He did not accumulate assets or care for them. He spoke softly and was far from harsh language or boycotting other people.

He taught the Futuhat al-Makkiyyah from Maghrib to the middle of the evening and had great respect for Shaykh Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi.

Many works were written in Urdu and Arabic by him, including

  • Al-Ifham wrote in 2 volumes.
  • A-Aql fi al-Falsafah al-Qadimah wal-Jadidah

He has many other works.

He died in 1336 after Jumadi Al-Akhir and was buried at the Madrassa Al-Nizamia, he founded.

The Sheikh, Mujaddid , and the Muhaddith were among the most important and most elect ulemas produced by India’s subcontinent over the past century.

Hazrat Anwaarullah Farooqui’s lineage is traced back to Hazrat syedna omer Farooq Razi Allah hu annhu.

Hazrat, at the age of 11, completed the Holy Quran’s memorization (“Hafiz Quran”)

Hazrat then learned fiqh, hadees, and went for haj. Hazrat haji imdadullah met Hazrat and became a disciple. After coming from hajj Hazrat was made a teacher to six Nizam Mir Mahbub Ali Khan and other people.

Qazi ameeruddin founded Jamia nizamia. He also made Hazrat Ullah Farooqui head of the foundation and guardian.

Anwaarullah Farooqui, a well-known Sheikh, embodied love for the Messenger Allah alaihi. His knowledge was unsurpassed, along with his humility, perseverance and generosity earned him high respect from the people and the Sayyids, who were then the kings in Deccan.

The Sheikh belonged to the Noble genealogy of Hazrat Shah Rahiuddin Qandari Rafiuddin Rahimathullah. His predecessors were Qandahar.

Sheikh Anwaarullah Farooqui achieved such extraordinary heights in knowledge and wisdom that no one of his peers could match him. It is a fascinating fact that three generations of Asif Jahi rulers were once or twice under his tutelage.

The seventh Nizam Mir Osman Al Khan appointed the Sheikh anwaarullah Faooqui to manage and oversee the Hyderabad State’s Office for Religious Affairs. His contributions during this period to Islam’s benefit in India are significant.

He was also the founder of Jamia Nizamia Islamic University. It is still known as the Al-Azhar of India. This institution was the foundation of thousands of scholars, both from India and elsewhere.

This group was instrumental in spreading the knowledge of deen to the masses. Jamia Nizamia was chosen by Allah Azza wa jall due to pure niyah, and prayers from the Sheikh.

To spread His love and His word.

The Noble Sheikh’s other great and unsurpassed achievements included the creation of Majlis Ishaat ul Uloom (the Center for Publishing Islamic Sciences Sciences), which has been a source of immense benefit for the past century.

Sheikh anwaarullah Farrooqui founded the Jewel institution in 1888. It is one of the Islamic Research institutions in the subcontinent.

Dairatul M’aarif al-Uthmaniyya is a unique collection of rare and original works that deal with Islamic record, art and traditional sciences. It has published, edited, published and preserved thousands of these works over the past century.

Dairatul Maarif al-Uthmaniyya, despite its neglect following the fall of Hyderabad State and the Indian Government’s lackluster support over the past six decades, is still a valuable repository of Islamic knowledge as well as original manuscripts. The books published by Dairatul Maarif over the past hundred years have been a source of sacred knowledge for its readers. They are also part of the curriculum of many universities throughout Europe and the Middle East. They still make huge profits for the top Middle Eastern publishing houses, while copyright-holding institutions are in disarray.

The Kutub Khana Asifiyya was founded by Sheikh anwaarullah Faloooqui, which is now the State Central Library of Hyderabad.

Another project was also planned by Sheikh anwaarullah Farrooqui on the Dairatul M’aarif al-Uthmaniyya, to compile and publish rare Hanafi Hadith literature and Fiqh literature.

His student, the Muhaqqiq ul Mahmood Shah al-Qadri al-Hanafi rahimtahullah – also known as Sheikh Abul Wafa al-afGhani R when he founded Majlis ahya ul Maarif Romania. This Sufi Sheikh is a credit to the Hanafi Madhab/Maslak for the publication of books under his direction. Scholars around the world are reaping the benefits of the institution’s work today.

Anwaar-e-Ahmedi was one of the many writings by Sheikh Anwarullah Farooqui. He was also in Madinah Munawwara and Afadatul Ifhaam.

These are important and unique research works in Islamic scholarship.

His understanding of the dynamics of heresies was much better than that of his contemporaries. Some scholars were ignorant and favoured heresies by the ghayra Muqallideen, while others held on to their pens. However, he was one of the first Indian subcontinent writers to oppose the heresies committed by the ghayra Muqallideen. He also pointed out the errors of the Qadianis and neycharis and presented the authentic aqeeda from ahle Sunnah tul Jamat.

We are grateful to Sheikh Anwarullah Farooqi, for his tireless service to the deen as well as his efforts to preserve their traditions and protect their aqeedah.

Hazrat Ullah Farooqui, a great scholar writer, wrote many books about hadees, fiqh and other topics.

Jamia nizamia in India is an Islamic university.

Many books have been written by Hazrat Ullah Farooqui.

1. Kitaab ul aql

2. Maqasid ul Islam

3. Anwar e Ahmadi

4. Haqeeqatul fiqh

5. Anwaar ul haqq

The Jamia nizamia students spread Hazrat AnwaarUllah’s teachings around the world.

The annual urs of Hazrat Awaarullah Farooqui (Hazrat Anwaarullah Farooqui) are celebrated each year.

Hazrat anwaarullah Farooqui shrine is at Shibi gunj Hussaini Alam.
