Urdu Version

Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanawi (1863-1943)was one of the greatest Scholars of the last century. In his era some ‘New-Age Muslims’ had fallen prey to Empiricism, and had begun to challenge and object to the most fundamental tenets of Islamic belief.

Mawlana Thanawi proves that the objections raised by the Western-oriented Muslims are irrational. Not only are Islamic creedal tenets defined in revelation (the Quran and the Hadiths), but they are rational as well. In his famous treatise, Answer to Modernism, he lays down seven principles by which all of these modern objections can be refuted. The study of these principles will prove to be an intellectual tool for Muslims living in contemporary times. These principles will rationally aid the Muslims to refute all modern notions in contradiction with the Quran and the Hadiths


About the Author:
Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi was born in 1280 A.H. in the village of Thana Bowan. His desire for Deen was initiated by his initial ustaad Moulana Fateh Muhammed Saheb.Commonly referred to as Hakim al-Ummat (‘Sage of the Ummah’), was a giant among the Islamic scholars of the twentieth century. He was a master in all branches of Islamic scholarship including Qur’an, Hadith, Fiqh and Tasawwuf. A prolific writer, he had more than a thousand publications to his credit. He wrote for the minimally literate as effectively as he did for scholars. Nearly a century later some of his books remain as popular as they were when originally published.
Moulana’s Teachers were all great luminaries of their time. The most important amongst them was Moulana Muhammed Yaqub Saheb from whom he achieved the greatest amount of knowledge and spiritual benefit.
He learnt qiraat from the well-known Qari Muhammed Abdullah Saheb Muhajir Makki, during his student days in Deoband he desired to make a pledge on the hands of Moulana Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi but he ended becoming a desciple of Hajee Imadadullah.
Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi spent his entire life serving deen in every field. he passed away in Rajab 1362 A.H. (1943).

Verily, in the heavens and the earth are signs for those who believe.
(Sura al Jathiya, 45:3)

A Sufi Study of Hadith (Originally titled Haqiqa al-Tariqa min as-Sunna al-Aniqa) is a unique work of commentary on a selection of over three hundred authentic hadith. Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanawi, one of the subcontinent’s greatest spiritual leaders and an author of unequalled prolificacy, translates, interprets, and then comments on each hadith from the perspective of tasawwuf, whether to explain a fine point of theology, or to discourse on morality, etiquette, behaviour, or the customary practices of Sufis. In the pages of this volume, one encounters a side of Islam that is little known and less understood. For all seekers of the truth, and especially those keen to further their understanding of the teachings of the Prophet, upon him be peace ontasawwuf-related subjects, Maulana Thanawi’s work is truly invaluable.

Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo

Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanwi rahmatullahi alayh excelled in every branch of Islamic learning and was one of the Islamic world s most outstanding religious figures of recent times. Perhaps his most significant and enduring legacy is a renewed awareness, understanding and acceptance of authentic tasawwuf among the masses. Indeed, he is still remembered as Hakim-al-Ummah (Physician of the Ummah) due to his expertise in diagnosing spiritual ailments and dispensing the most efficacious cures.

In this book Mawlana Thanwi discusses numerous subtle and complex themes of tasawwuf derived from the ahadith of our beloved Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. His erudite commentary demonstrates time and again how the principles oftasawwuf have their origins in the primary sources of Islam. Mawlana Thanwi s approach, like that of his illustriousmashai ikh, stresses the complete harmony between Shariah and tariqah and their interrelatedness.

Alhamdulillah, Mawlana Yusuf DeLorenzo s translation now gives English speaking Muslims access to this valuable work. Studying this book under the guidance of a qualified shaykh will increase the interested reader s understanding and appreciation of the treasury of hadith as well as the science of tasawwuf, and prove beneficial for the traveller on the path leading to Allah. – Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullah

This volume revives the tradition of the earliest Sufis, who related hadiths from the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in such core works as Qushayri s Risala, Makki s Qut al-Qulub, and Abu Nu aym s Hilya al-Awliya. Imam Junayd has said, The spiritual path is blocked shut, except to those who seek out the traces of the Chosen Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace); Say, This is my path: I summon to Allah upon entire insight, I and whoever wholeheartedly follows me [Qur an 12:108]. Thanawi s work is a treasury of valuable hadiths for anyone on the true path, and a guide to many of the traditions (adab) of Sufism in the South Asia of his day. The powerful and vigorous translation of Yusuf DeLorenzo brings to life in English a great many realities of the way of spiritual realities. – Nuh Ha Mim Keller
