Hope you are all in the best of health - Ameen
I am hoping to gather more information about a particular 'Haq Chaar Yaar movement’, which if I am correct started in Jhelum, and uses the below flag, as their 'logo', and also gather more bayaans by some specific Ulema, which I will go in detail about, later
What I already know (which may or may not be 100% correct!)
This particular 'movement' idea grew from the opening of the Jamia Hanfia Madrassa (also known as the Gumbad Wali Masjid), in Jhelum by Qazi Muhammed Abdul Lateef (Late)(of Jhelum), alongside Qazi Mazhar Hussain (Late) (of Chakwal) & Molana Allah Huda Yaar (Late) (of Jhelum). From what I have gathered it, it was started to counter the growing popularity of the Shia faith in Pakistan, in the early ‘70s/80’s, especially their practices of abusing the Khulaf-e-Rashdeen, the companions of our beloved Nabi , and the Ummu l-Mu'minin (RA).
It is strictly an educational movement, and has NO TIES to any violent activity within Pakistan & does not promote violence, to the best of my knowledge - Allah (SWT) knows best.
SF members from Jhelum will know more about the movement or at least more about the mosque. Any information, to the daily running of the madrassa, the history, active Ulema etc would be greatly appreciated. I also want to increase my library of bayaans by any of the above mentioned Ulema, and in particular I would really appreciate it, if someone can point me in the right direction to where I can download/purchase bayaans by Qazi Muhammed Lateef's son, Qari Khobaib Ahmed Umer (also known as Qari Khobaib).
, I had the pleasure of meeting Qari Khobaib Ahmed Umer , but Qari Khobaib passed away in Birmingham in February 2009, whilst visiting the UK on dawah/fundraising activities. At the namaz-e-janaz of Qari Khobaib saab, I was told that they were overseeing the running of the Gumbad Wali Masjid, as well over 30 other madrassas.
To those brother & sisters who are from Jhelum, or have ties to the Madrassa, please make yourself known, as you may be able to assist me in future queries, if not immediately, . Ultimately, the aim is to preserve the bayaan of these elders, and make them available online for other brothers & sisters.
Your assistance here will become sadaqah jariyah for yourself & me, .
Some further information.

May Allah (SWT) bless them for their work in defending the Khulaf-e-Rashdeen (RA), the companions of our beloved Nabi , Ummu l-Mu’minin (RA) & educating others. Ameen.
