I am currently writing up a treatise on the history and the legacy of the Ulamah whose origins lie in the village of Khandlah. I am referring to many works in Arabic, Urdu and also English. I have been able to go right back to the scholar Mufti Ilahi Baksh (student of shah abdul azeez dehlawi). I am also attempting to link each scholar with the next, something which i found to be a distinguishing feature of the scholars from this village. I am in the process of collecting names and have collected approximately 25 names of scholars past and present. I was wandering if anyone could help me find names and biographies of scholars that are not found in the books. I am referring to over 20 books in all 3 languages. There is a work that has already been done in this subject in urdu by Maulana Ihtishaam Al Hasan called 'Ahwal Mashaaikh Khandlah' which i am finding very difficult to locate, and it is imperitive that i have that book. Please could somebody find it for me as a PDF or if somebody has a copy and is in the UK if they could lend it to me. If anyone has any suggestions for any other books in which i would be able to find this information then please let me know. I am also looking for present day scholars from khandlah or those to have passed away recently and were not very famous or their biographies were not written e.g Maulana Izharul Hasan who was the shaykhul hadeeth at nizamudeen. (i am not 100 percent sure if he was from khandlah and was hoping if somebody could confirm that).
Jazakallah Khairan May Allah reward us all and grant us sincerity in all that we do.
