    Default Silsila of the Ulama of Deoband

    Assalaamu Alaykum,

    I was wondering whether any of our elders, have a silsila which does not go through Hajji Imdadullah? I know plenty of Deobandi Ulama such as Mawlana Khalil, Mawlana Ashraf Ali, Mawlana Rasheed Ahmad, Mawlana Qasim Nanotwi got their khilafat from him, but are there any other akabir who have a different chain than the above one?
    And if he were to ask for a gentle lady in marriage, he would be refused, and when he leaves the world it does not miss him, and if he goes out, his going out is not noticed, and if he falls sick, he is not attended to, and if he dies, he is not accompanied to his grave.

    A few names:

    Hadrat Shah Rafi' al-Din (muhtamim of DU Deoband) received ijazah from Hadrat Shah 'Abd al-Ghani Mujaddidi in the Naqshbandi Tariqah, as well from Hadrat Haji Imdad Allah.

    Hadhrat Mawlana 'Ahmad 'Ali Sahanranpuri also had ijazah from Shah 'Abd al-Ghani Mujaddidi. Hadrat Mawlana Badr-e-'Alam Miruthi had ijazah in this silsilah also. Hadrat Mawlana Husayn 'Ali (student of Hadrat Mawlana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi) also had ijazah in the Naqshbandi silsilah.

    I think many of our elders who had/have ijazah in the Naqshbandi silsilah will not have Hadrat Haji Imdad Allah in those particular chains.

    'Allamah Anwar Shah Kashmiri had ijazah in the Suharwardi Tariqah from his father.

    May Allah shower His mercy on them all.

    Sh. Abd al-Ghani al-Dehlawi (Allah Have Mercy on Him)

    Salam. I thought I would add some material regarding the hadith scholars from India that we may not be too familiar with. More to follow Inshallah......
    **************************
    Sh. Abd al-Ghani al-Dehlawi (Allah Have Mercy on Him)
    (Summarized from Dr Taqi al-Din Nadwi’s Thabat: al-Durr al-Thamin p.75-76)

    He is the Imam, the scholar, the Muhaddith: Abd al-Ghani bin Abu Saeed bin Safi al-Umari. He was from the family of Sh. Ahmad al-Sirhindi, the Imam of the Mujaddadi order.

    He was born in the month of Shaban in the year 1235 in the city of Dehli. He memorized the Quran and studied grammar and Arabic with Mawlana Habibullah al-Dehlawi.

    He then turned his focus towards the study of fiqh, he heard hadith and read other subjects with his father, including the six books of hadith and the Muwatta via the transmission of Muhammad bin Hasan al-Shaybani.
    He read Sahih al-Bukhari with Sh. Muhammad Ishaq ibn Muhammad Afdal al-Dehlawi the grandson of Sh. Abd al-Aziz.
    He read Mishkat al-Masabih with Sh. Makhsusallah Ibn Shah Rafi al-Din al-Dehlawi. He read Sahih al-Bukhari and was given general ijazah for the rest of the hadith collections by Sh. Muhammad Abid al-Sindi al-Ansari al-Madani.
    He also received an ijazah from Sh. Abu Zahid Ismaeel bin Idris al-Rumi then al-Madani.

    He took the spiritual path from his father, and travelled with him to the two holy sanctuaries in the year 1294, he performed Hajj and then returned back to India. He then busied himself with the teaching of hadith with many students studying with him.

    When the tribulation of the British colonial conquest of Dehli took place in the year 1273 he decided to leave and travelled to the two holy sanctuaries. He took up residence in Madina the Illuminated –Allah increase it in nobility- and began teaching hadith and busying himself in acts of worship.

    Countless scholars benefited from his gatherings, the people of India and Arab lands agreed upon his wilayah and greatness.

    He authored a fine set of notes upon Sunan Ibn Majah called ‘Injah al-Hajah’.

    Sh. Abd al-Ghani al-Dehlawi passed away on Tuesday, with six days of Muharram remaining in the year 1296 in Madinah the Illuminated. May Allah (the Exalted) have mercy on him and all of the believers, and increase our nisbat with him in this world and the next. Ameen.

    For more details refer to: al-Ialam (7/320) of al-Hasani, Fihris al-Faharis (p.758), the introduction of Awjaz al-Masalik (p.145) and al-Yani’ al-Janni (p.8)

    And if he were to ask for a gentle lady in marriage, he would be refused, and when he leaves the world it does not miss him, and if he goes out, his going out is not noticed, and if he falls sick, he is not attended to, and if he dies, he is not accompanied to his grave.
