Biography of Hazrat Maulana Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahib (RA)
Hazrat Maulana Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahib (RA) lived in Hardoi, U.P. India. His father was Maulana Mahmud-ul-Haq Haqqi Sahib (RA), who was a Khalifah Mujaaz-e-Suhbat of Hazrat Thanwi (RA). Their lineage went up to Shaikh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlawi (RA). His initial education of Arabic, Urdu, and Farsi started at home. Afterwards he enrolled at Mazaahir-ul-Uloom in Saharanpur, and completed the Alim course. During the course of his studies, his piety was such that it had an effect on his classmates and drew the attention of his teachers. He was also very fortunate to be granted the opportunity to travel to Thana Bhawan from Saharanpur every week. Especially during the holidays, he would stay in the service of his Murshid. It is for this very reason that Hakeem-ul-Ummah (RA) paid special attention to him. He received Khilafat from Hazrat Thanwi (RA) at a very young age. It was upon the order of his spiritual mentor, Hazrat Thanwi (RA) that he went to Hardoi to kindle the fire of the knowledge of Deen from which the Muslim population is still benefiting from. He founded a Madrasah there by the name of Ashraf-ul-Madaris. Besides the local students, there were students from Mumbai, Gujarat, Hyderabad, and other various places.
Keeping his religious yearning in mind, Hazrat Maulana Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahib (RA) had revived the Majlis Da’wat-ul-Haq that was initially formed by Hazrat Thanwi (RA). It then took a new beginning in Hardoi, and now carries on the work of Islah and Tabligh. They often host conferences as well because of which the fire of Iman was rekindled in the Muslims of Hardoi.
Hazrat Maulana Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahib (RA) was also the head of Majlis Siyanat-ul-Muslimeen, which holds its annual conference at Jami’ah Ashrafiya, in Lahore, Pakistan.
Hazrat Maulana Shah Abrar-ul-Haq Sahib (RA) was the last of Hazrat Thanwi’s (RA) Khulafaa to pass away. He passed onto the mercy of Allah on May 17, 2005. We pray that Allah fill his grave with noor.
