Abstract


Ibn Taymiyyah (661-728/1263-1327) is one of the most seminal personalities in the history of Islam, who sought to revive Muslim society through the Qur’anic and the Sunnah of the Prophet. His thought influenced not only his contemporaries but reached far beyond. The Muslim scholars of the subcontinent were also influenced by his thoughts and his methodology of reformation. Shah Wali Allah (1703-1762), a very influential scholar of the eighteenth century, was also influenced by Ibn Taymiyyah’s revivalist thought. Ibn Taymiyyah’s books were later published in India by Nawwab Siddiq Hasan Khan (1832-1890), a well-known Muslim writer from Bhopal. Sayyid Nadhir Husain Dihalvi (d. 1902), who taught in Delhi for more than half a century, was considered a leading figure of the Ahl-i Hadith movement in India. He was also influenced by Ibn Taymiyyah’s ideology. This ideology then was transferred to his pupils, who were instrumental in wide dissemination of Ibn Taymiyyah’s thought in the Indian subcontinent. This article highlights the impact of Ibn Taymiyyah’s ideology on Ahl-i Hadith scholars of the Indian subcontinent.
