For the guidance of the community

An acute need was felt for a standard syllabus for Imams, muezzins, etc .so that they could perform their duties properly.  Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) ordered that a model syllabus be prepared for it.  This work was assigned to a student of his, Maulana Qazi Ghulam Mohiuddin (May Allah shower His Mercy on him).  He fulfilled this work and it has since become famous as “Ahle Khidmaat Shariah” and even today this is considered the standard text for teaching the basics of Islam to anyone.  By the grace of Allah, to enable each and everyone to gain benefit, this book has been translated into English and published.


Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) paid special attention to conserving and protecting the shrines and monasteries of the saints.  He paid special attention to the education and training of the Sajjada Nasheen of the various shrines and made a special syllabus for them.  This was named “Hidayaat Ush Shuyukh” which was put together by his student Hadhrat Syed Shah Abul Qasim Shuttari (May Allah shower His Mercy on him).  (Anwaar Ul Anwaar, Pg. No. 96)


Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) made (basic) Islamic education compulsory in all schools of his time.  He distributed Islamic literature free among poor and needy people.  He appointed preachers in the city, surrounding districts and various other villages to ensure that the Islamic fervor of the people remained alive.  He instituted a training program for those whose job was to give the deceased their final bath before burial so that they could do it as per the injunctions of the Shariah.  He got a book wrote, “Nisaab Ghassalaan” and had it distributed.  (Matla ‘Ul Anwaar, Pg. No. 58; Anwaar Ul Anwaar, Pg. No. 107)


He appointed educated persons for slaughtering animals as per the directives of the Shariah, which still continues by the grace of Allah. (Matla ‘Ul Anwaar, Pg. No. 55, Anwaar Ul Anwaar, Pg. No. 98)
