    Jazak'Allah, brother Aqdas for providing the link.

    After going through your translation of Maulana Yaseen Misbahi's excellent work, I wonder what would Shaikh Nuh Keller make of Deobandi-Barelvi conflict!

    Is your translation based on an abridged version? I believe, I saw a book by Maulana Yaseen Misbahi on the same subject at Razvi Kitab Ghar, Old Delhi and it was more than 200 pages. May be you have used an abridged "booklet" for translation.

    Jazak'Allah brothers.

    I understand that there is not much scope of tampering/misrepresentation anyway when discussing the life and works of various Hadith scholars. Rijal (of Muwatta narrators) by Abd al-Hayy Lakhnawi is another example of a sound work in the field of hadith.

    I would still appreciate some information on Abd al-Aziz ibn Imam Waliullah ad-Dehlawi.

    As an aside, I also came across another Turath Publishing book: Jami Uloom al-hikam (The Compendium of Knowledge and Wisdom) by ibn Rajab Hanbali. Seems like another book worth reading.


    Luckily both these books are being retailed at a slightly lower price at a local bookstore.

    as salam alaikum,

    irrespective of their background, the people at turath publishing are doing a great service by translating some of these classics into English.

    You will have to bypass some of the obviously intentional references to deobandi scholars and their works in their translations of classics.

    was salam

    some of their published works :

    some of their forthcoming books
  6. Salam sidi,

    I bought this gem of a book a while back, and I do recommend it, as it is a worthwhile read on the masters of hadith, notwithstanding your reservation of Deoband/Nadwatul Ulama.

    Consequently the editor Shaykh Mohammed Akram Nadwi talks about his ijazahs regarding this book, one such ijaza for your particular interest is:

    Mohammed Akram Nadwi > Shaykh Abd ar-Rahman ibn Abd al-Hayy al-Kattani > Shaykh Ahmad Rida Khan al-Baraylwi > al-Mu’ammar Alar-Rasul > Imam Abd al-Aziz ad-Dihlawi. (Bustan al-Muhaditheen, p.13).

    Hope this information was of help.

    I recently came across a newly published translation of Bustan al-Muhaditheen.

    This translation (The Garden of Hadith Scholars) is based on the original work by Abd al-Aziz ibn Imam Waliullah ad-Dehlawi (1159 AH - 1239 AH / 1745 AD - 1822 AD).

    I would appreciate if some one could tell me whether this book is worth buying.

    Is there any link in lineage between Shaikh Abd al-Haq Muhaddith Dehlawi and Abd al-Aziz ad-Dehlawi? What was the position of Abd al-Aziz ad-Dehlawi vis-a-vis the school of Deoband? Deobandis obviously trace their root to Shah Waliullah, but how close was Abd al-Aziz ad-Dehlawi to usual Deobandi positions?​
