What Author Says About This Book
1. I have studied all the previous commentaries on ‘Al-Fauzul Kabeer’ and have derived special benefit from ‘AI-Ownul Kabeer’. I have not refuted any of those points which arc – objectionable in other commentaries rather I have only mentioned what is correct.
2. This commentary has been written for the novice which is why I have refrained from mentioning any issue which would he difficult for a beginner to understand. On the other hand regardless of how intricate Shah Sahib’s discussion might be I have tried to make its explanation easy. Therefore those who would like an in depth discussion should refer to the Arabic commentary, ‘AI-Ownul Kabeer by Hadhrat Moulana Mufti Saeed Ahmed Palanpuri(D.B).
3. I have been teaching ‘Al-Fauzul Kabeer’ in Darul Uloom Deoband for approximately ten years, which is why; (in my experience) I have tried to solve all uncertainties of the novice student. If after reading the entire discussion one still has misgivings then one should try reading it once again with more concentration. Allah-Willing your misgivings will be removed.
The English meaning of the title is abundant good.
About Shah Waliyullah
Qutb al-Din Ahmad ibn ‘Abd al-Rahim, popularly known as Shah Wali Allah,lived at a critical juncture of Muslim history. India had enjoyed the peaceful and prosperous rule of the Mughals for more than 200 years, but by the time of Shah Wali Allah, mutually hostile principalities had begun to emerge. Many of the newly emerging quasi independent states were the result of the rising influence of the militant Maratha, Sikh and Hindu communities and Muslim power and glory in the sub-continent, as in other parts of the world, were gradually eroded. It was at this time of utter despair and despondency for Muslims that Shah Wali Allah was born.
He is among the later scholars who carried the traditions of Al-Ghazzali and Imam Shatibi in combining the essential of Shari’ah, its understanding, development and interpretation to the issues and problems of life. He like Al-Ghazzali took deep stock of Akhira as the explaining point of the relationship between worldly existence and the Hereafter in a meaningful way.
