Firstly i forgot to write last time that the title which Ulama refer to Khatiya Shaikh Sab is Qutb e Bangal!
*It is well known in Bangladesh especially in Sylhet the uprightness and love for Islam and Shariah that Khatiya Shaikh has. In his earlier days when there was to be a mela (unislamic gatherings where music and women gather, drugs etc) near the Shaikhs area he used to single handedly go with his stick and stop the gathering. Just this February there was supposed to be a Mela nearby and Khatiya Sab heard of it and become emotional to stop it. People tried to tell him you are old now. He told them loudly ' I am not dead yet, as long as i am alive i will try to stop this, do what you will after i die!
People of the mela heard of this and subsequently cancelled it.
*A Mufti told me that there are a lot of musical instruments under the bed of Khatiya Shaikh Sab. He told me that these were his ghaneemah (war booty) which he confiscated from people.
*Before Maulana Asad Madani passed away he visited Bangladesh. He had many programs set up. Khatiya Shaikh Sab went to meet him and get him to his program. Maulana Asad told him that i have such set programs which will not allow me to come to your program , which was a very long distance away. Khaitiya Shaikh Sab raised his voice to Maulana Asad and said 'Your father used to listen to me and you disobey me!'. He then agreed to go with Khatiya Shaikh Sab. The distance was too much for them to arrive on time and somehow a helicopter was found which took them there.
*Talking about Maulana Asad Madani, once he saw in his dream that Khatiya Shaikh sab was the security guard of Shaikhul Islam Maulana Madani!
Hope you find these of benefit
i have recently been trying to collect some information regarding all the Ullama of Deoband from Bangladesh - there are some great scholars alive and passed away and i think its important to mention their story/life and sacrifce, i want to present this inforamtion similar to tauheed o sunnah website - there have a good collection of deobandi scholars but no bangladeshi speakers- and we all know there are some top calibre schoalrs in bangladesh. i have spoken to Maulana Olipuri who said he will help me assemble what i need - but if anyone else can help either by submitting rare audio bayaans or biography etc please get in touch - you can get my email address from the moderators
Jazakallah brother ottomite, very beneficial. If you have any further stories please relate them and of other shaikhs.
I think it is good idea that we collate information of great shaikhs in Bangladesh past an present.
Hazrat maulana Nurul Islam chottogrami is in UK and most recently in Birmingham
Inshallah i will relate more soon.
Who is Maulana Nurul Islam Chottogrami?
At the moment Hazrat Maulana Taffazul Haq is in the country, i think (Hobigonji Muhaddith Huzoor) amazing person..
Hazrat Maulana Jubaer Ahmad Ansari and Hazrat Maulana Junaid al Habib are currently in London
Jazakallah for the info. Maulana Nurul Islam is from is one of the heads of Khatme Nubuwwat in Bangladesh. I heard there is a Jalsa in Birmingham in which he is giving bayan.
Who is Maulana Tofazzal Haq's Murshid in Tariqa? I heard in Bangladesh that he has quite a few mureeds. Also how can he be contacted?
Sufi Abdul Hamid Swati sahib r.a (founder of Nusratul Ulum Gujranwala and younger brother of Maulana Sarfraz Khan Safdarr.a) was also a khalifa of Hadhrat Madani r.a.
I have a document in bangla with all the bangladeshi ulamas names which was written by Allama Ashraf Ali Bishwanathi (rh). I've got audios of many ulamas if ur interested.
Brother, I would be very interested in reading the Bengali document. Would it be possible for you to scan it on the forum. It would be very much appreciated.
