    it would be good if you could tell us about them, abu fadl.

    There are other greats also, but sadly, are not so famous. Some of the major mudarriseen such as Ustad-ul-Arabi wal Ajam Allama Muhammad Din Sahib from the last century are not there. Many others too.

    It is the same mujahid sufi, Umar Mukhtar.

    I think Shaykh GF Haddad is just not aware of our Master Mawlana Ilyas Attari al Qadiri (Allah Preserve him) when he wrote this article, there are also many other top Sunni 'ulama in Afghanistan and the lands to the North (Bukhara and Thamarqand) of which virtually no one here is aware of

    There are many Present day Great Islamic Scholars missing from the list.

    One of the Brightest Lights of Islam Today : Amir e Ahle Sunnat Maulana Abu Bilal, Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qadiri (May Allah Az'zawajal Preserve Him).

    That article by Shaykh Haddad is excellent and has been on the WWW for a while now; I think the primary reason not many Sunnis from the Subcontinent are in that list is that not many of their written works have been made available as opposed to the dobbies who have even published their lesser scholars' works! it is our own fault...

    Brother Haroon,

    That Umar Mukhtar I think was different; wallahu 'alam.

    Amongst the contemporary Sunni ulama you should also mention Hazrat Pir Sayyid Afzal Hussain Shah Jama'ati of Alipur Sharif; an extremely gentle and otherworldy sage, he is very learned indeed but spends most of his time in ibadat of his Lord. I have not seen a person so humble as Pir Sahib and I am not saying that just because I have taken bayah with them. His saadagii (simple manner?) is astounding in this age...a true wali e kaamil and a mine of knowledge he chooses to stay in his village most of the time...

    I'm just looking through the list for the first time, and i do notice a few well-known names.

    One of the names mentioned is Umar Mukhtar (died 1931 Libya) - is this the same one upon whom the film "Lion of the Desert" is based?

    Another one which sticks out is Shaheed Sayid Qutb - a bit confused with that one.

    and many other Sunni luminaries who are far greater than 'the others'.

    but shaykh gibril doesn't list these who are far greater than any of the deobandis in his list, and sunnis as well. probably he doesn't know of them; he certainly would have if he had known them.

    shaykh hamid rida khan
    shaykh mustafa rida khan
    shaykh hasanayn rida khan
    shaykh sayyid na'imuddin muradabadi
    shaykh sayyid muhammad kichauchawi
    shaykh amjad `ali al-a'aDhami
    shaykh Habibu'r Rahman (mujahid e millat)
    mawlana hashmat ali
    shaykh ahmed yar khan an-na`imi
    shaykh abu'l hasan zayd faruqi

    i think i should make a list. no, seriously.

    if shabbeer nu'mani can make to the list, why not mawlana arshad al-qadri?

    the list that follows mentions rashid and mahmud as 'scholars'.

    now, i think shaykh gibril doesn't have access to rashid's works - since most are in urdu - and he relies on the opinion of others. even otherwise, shaykh gibril would never justify or rationalize the abominable things said by the deobandis.

    one more interesting feature of the list is that some of the scholars mentioned are also signatories in the Husam al-Haramayn.

    ..i love him all the more. Hafidhahullah wa nafa'ana wa sayiri'l muslimeena bi `ulumihi wa barakatih. Al-Ghumari.htm

    it warms the cockles of my heart, and increases the coolness of my eyes when he says:

    "Regarding the remark that the Ghumaris are or were the latter- day stars of Islamic scholarship, this is correct if we mean that they were stars among many other stars, but incorrect if we mean giant stars. I would rank among the giant stars the Hafiz Muhammad ibn Ja`far al-Kattani, the Hafiz Badr al-Din al-Hasani - both were Damascene Morrocans - and Imam Ahmad Rida Khan."
