Ra'ees-ul-Qalam Hazrat 'Allama Maulana Arshadul Qadri
Hazrat 'Allama Maulana Arshadul Qadri Rahmatullah 'alaih was, beyond doubt, one of most prolific scholars of the latter half of twentieth century whose contribution to Islam was mainly aimed at differentiating between haq (truth) and batil (falsehood). Because of some of his literary accomplishments he is thus considered as one of the leading scholars of the Ahle Sunna wal Jam'aat of this age.
Hazrat 'Allama Maulana Arshadul Qadri Rahmatullah 'alaih worked tirelessly to defend the pristine teachings of Islam by virtue if his intellectual prowess and his literary skills. In his literary masterpieces he has managed to explain so convincingly to both scholars and to the Muslim masses, the errors of the heretical sects within Islam. Such works include: "Tableeghi Jama'at", "Zer-o-Zabar", "Lala Zar", "Zalzala", "Daawate Insaf" (A Call for Justice) and so forth. After reading these concise books, one is immediately forced to decide between truth and falsehood and to quickly cast aside the mendacious and misguided ideas of the heretical sects of recent times.
His knowledge was so vast that Hafiz-e-Millat 'Allama Abdul Azeez Saheb Rahmatullah 'alaih, stated that when Hazrat 'Allama Maulana Arshadul Qadri Rahmatullah 'alaih was studying under his supervision at a young age, at the famous university of Al-Jamiatul Ashrafia, in Mubarakpur, U.P. India; his natural ability as an original thinker and his uncanny ability to instantaneously grasp the essence of a new subject was so strikingly obvious, that if someone searched deeply, one would be as forced to recognize that he possessed the innate qualities of a brilliant and gifted scholar.
