Hakeem Fayyaz Ahmad Islahi
By Safdar Sultan Islahi / Zafrul Islam Islahi, Aligarh

Hakeem Fayyaz Ahmad Islahi, the oldest student of Madrasatul Islah (Sarai Meer, Azamgarh) and a selfless servant of Islam died on 1 June 2001 at Mumbai. Inna lillah wa inna ilaihi raji’oon.

The whole of Islahi fraternity and associates of the Islamic movement felt a deep shock on his death. A condolence meeting in the memory of the deceased was held at Uloomul Qur’an institution, Aligarh, on 2 June 2001under the chairmanship of the Hakim Islahi’s old colleague and the financial secretary of Madarsatul Islah, Maulana Abdur Rahman Nasir Islahi Jami’ee. Staff of the institution, teachers of the AMU, research scholars and Dr Mahmood Ahmad Khan, son of the late Hakeem Saheb, took part in this meeting. Dr Ishtiaq Ahmad Zilli, Maulana Sultan Ahmad Islahi, Dr Abu Sufian Islahi and Dr Zafrul Islam Islahi expressed their views in this meeting and Maulana Abdur Rahman Nasir Islahi enlightened the audience with his presidential address.

Hakeem Fayyyaz Islahi belonged to Makhdoompur, District Azamgarh. He was born in 1910. He got his admission in class III of the Madrasatul Islah in 1921 and completed his education in 1932. He very much benefited from the teachings of Maulana Akhtar Ahsan Islahi and Maulana Ameen Ahsan Islahi, the two great desciples of Imam Hamiduddin Farahi.

After his education from Madarsatul Islah, he completed a course in the Unani system of medicine from Takmilul Tib College, Lucknow. He started his medical practice in his village and thereafter set up a clinic in the nearby town of Mahul where he took up permanent residence. His clinic continued for fifty years. He used his profession as a means of service to people. Alongwith the clinic, he was deeply associated with the Islamic movement. He was an old member of Jama’at-e Islami and also served as its local chief. He took great interest in local gatherings and programmes of the Jama’at. In addition to district and state-level gatherings, he regularly participated in national level gatherings of the Jama’at.

During the period of Emergency in the country, he underwent the sufferings and travails of prison life as an active member of the Jama’at-e Islami.

He had a deep attachment with the Holy Qur’an and used to study it very carefully. He also studied the exegesis of the Qur’an by Maulana Farahi and Maulana Amin Ahsan Islahi. It was his routine to recite and explain the meanings and explanations of the Holy Qur’an everyday after morning prayers in local mosques near his residence. God Almighty had gifted him with mastery over recitation of the Qur’an. People were anxious to listen to his recitations in the meetings and gatherings of the Jama’at. People very much liked to offer prayers led by him. His personal life was ideal. He was a man of various attributes. Religiosity, honesty, sincerity, simplicity, plain speaking, humility and hospitality and absence of ego and self-aggrandizement were special features of his personality.

Hakeem Islahi was deeply attached to Madarsatul Islah and was a member of its administrative committee till the last days of his life. He regularly participated in the meetings of managing committee and was mindful of expansion and development of the madrasa and used to assist it in his personal capacity in all possible ways.
