To commemorate the outstanding services of Hazrat Shah Waliullah Dehlvi to promote the Islamic values, the Institute of Objective Studies instituted an Award known as "Shah Waliullah Award’ in 1999 to honour eminent scholars who have done outstanding work in Social Sciences, Humanities, Law and Islamics.

The second award for the year 2000 was conferred on Late Qazi Mujahidul Islam Qasmi Saheb for the valuable contribution made by him to ‘Islamic Fiqh’. The third award for the year 2001 was conferred on Prof. M. Nejatullah Siddiqui, an authority in the area of Islamic Economics and Islamic or interest-free banking.

Khan (Deptt. of Political Science, Jamia Millia Islamia), Prof. Z.A. Nizami (Director-Academics, IOS) and Mr. Mahmood Ali (Ex-Joint Secretary to the Govt. of India).
