Sulaiman Nadwi's relations with Maulanas No'mani and Thanawi

The Milli Gazette Online 

Aligarh: The Department of Islamic Studies, AMU, organised a lecture on the theme “Maulana Syed Sulaiman Nadwi’s relations with Maulana Shibili No’mani and Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanawi” under its extra-mural lecture programme in the reading room of the library of the department on January 3.

Dr Zafarul Islahi, convenor of the lecture programme, said that Maulana Nadwi was emotionally attached to MAO College and the AMU, and as editor of Urdu journal Ma’arif he always highlighted the cause of the university. He regularly participated in the sessions of the All-India Muslim Educational Conference and in the important functions of the university, served as a member of the university court as well as university course committee for oriental subjects and that he was awarded D. Litt honris causa for his contribution to advancement of scholarship in different branches of Arabic and Islamic learning.

Professor Syed Salman Nadwi, son of Maulana Sulaiman Nadwi, who was formerly chairman, Department of Islamic Studies, Durban University, spoke in detail on the close and sincere relations of Maulana Nadwi with Maulana Shibli and Maulana Thanwi, who was his spiritual guide. He described his father as a loyal, sincere, and dutiful student of Maulana Nomani from whom his father sought guidance even when he had been established as a scholar. Maulana Nadwi publicly acknowledged his indebtedness to his mentor till the end of his life, said Prof Salman Nadwi.

Maulana Nadwi was initiated into esoteric world of tasawwuf by Maulana Thanwi and was nominated his Khalifah (successor) by superseding several senior Murids.

Prof Abdul Ali, chairman, Department of Islamic Studies, complimented the guest speaker, Prof Salman Nadwi saying that he is a historical link between the new generation and the two intellectual giants of the Indian subcontinent, his father and his mentor Maulana No’mani, who on account of their masterpiece Sirat al-Nabi deserved to be honoured amongst a few greatest historians and historiogrphers ever produced by the Muslim world after Ibn Khaldun. The two stalwarts are held in esteem not only in South Asia, but also in the entire world for their valuable contributions. 

Professor Riazur Rahman Sherwani said that Maulana Syed Sulaiman Nadwi had two main aspects of his life, intellectual and spiritual. The intellectual aspect manifested itself in the valuable works done by him as scholar, historian, editor, author and director of Darul Musannifin in Azamgarh and the spiritual aspects became predominant following his initiation into the world of Tariqat.
