Al-Jamia Al-Islamia Darul Uloom Waqf Deoband
In India after the dreadful end of Mughal Empire in 1857, the very first Islamic intellectual reformist revolution rose in the North Indian town of Deoband. Hujjatul-Islam al-Imam Muhammad Qasim Nanawtawi established Darul Uloom Deoband on May 30, 1866. Those who helped him in his mission were Haji Aabid Husain and Imam Rabbani Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi and others. At Deoband, Imam Muhammad Qasim Nanawtawi reinstated the great intellectual legacy of Imam Shah Wali-Allah of Delhi. Imam Qasim Nanawtawi’s Darul Uloom Deoband became most prestigious seat of learning in Islamic Religious Sciences in Asia. In 1982 the legacy of Shah Wali-Allah and Imam Muhammad Qasim Nanawtawi was protected by Hakeemul Islam Maulana Qari Mohammad Tayyib (Rector of Darul Uloom Deoband 1929-1983) in form of present Darul Uloom Waqf Deoband.
