at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)


The uploaded PDF file contains 3 articles by different great scholars on the topic ‘Ikhtilaf’ translated from Urdu into English. Download it!

a.) “Differences in the Ummah” is a great article written by the late Hadhrat Maulana Muhammad Yusuf Ludhyanvi Shaheed (Rahmatullah Alayhi). He describes the two different types of differences of opinion: “Ijtihaadi Ikhtilaaf” & “Nazaryaai Ikhtilaaf” (Theoretical differences); with examples from the times of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).

b.) “Boundaries of Differences” is from the Discourses of Faqihul-Ummat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi (Rahmatullah Alayhi). Purpose of this is to show how the general public has to act/behave when ‘Ulama differ. Guidelines have been extracted for this purpose from Mufti Muhammed Shafee Sahib’s (Rahmatullah Alayhi) ‘Wahdat-e-Ummat’, and Hadhrat Sheikhul-Hadith Moulana Muhammed Zakaria Sahib’s (Rahmatullah Alayhi) ‘I’tidaal’.

c.) “Al-Insaf fi bayan sabab al-ikhtilaf” is a rational explanation of difference of opinion (in Fiqh) by Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Al-Dihlawi (Rahmatullah Alayhi). In easy language Hadhrat Shah Sahab tells how ‘Fiqh & Masa’il’ was created, because it didn’t even exist at the time of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) as a subject as it does today.

May Allah Ta’ala shower His blessings upon these great ‘Ulama-e-Haq for their sacrifices.
