Mawlana Younis Saharanpuri, is one of the very few living scholars with a command of the Hadith tradition that matches the past giants of hadith scholarship. His encyclopaedic knowledge, penetrating insight and analytical rigour, along with his deep piety, are renowned amongst students of hadith worldwide. This work introduces readers to the brilliant mind of this giant of hadith scholarship, in lucid and engaging Urdu prose. It discusses his world view, his unparalleled perspicacity, his groundbreaking contribution to hadith scholarship, his unique insights into other disciplines such as Fiqh, Kalam and Tasawwuf and those personal characteristics which made him beloved to all his students.
Such a profound and comprehensive intellectual biography, could only be written by a scholar of insight and learning in their own right, thus it is fitting that it is written by one of the leading hadith scholars in the Western world, a close student and intellectual inheritor of Maulana Younis, Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi.
