The Jamia Nizamiyya of Lahore was a world-renowned institute established by the great Muhaddith, Sardar Ahmad al-Qadiri. Amongst its finest alumni was the late Shaykh al-Hadith, Abd al-Hakim Sharaf al-Qadiri. Having been nurtured under the tutelage of Allama Ghulam Rasul al-Ridawi and Mufti Abd al-Qayyum al-Hazarwi, the late Allama Abd al-Hakim took it upon himself to be a beacon of the Prophetic way and a paragon of the Qadiri-Ridawi Order.

Amongst the greatest feats by Allama Abd al-Hakim was the founding of his own publishing house, namely ‘Muassasa al-Sharaf’. From this humble bookshop, he began a revolution with his pen as he translated numerous works from Arabic to Urdu (including many books authored by Imam Yusuf al-Nabhani) as well as authoring various original works of his own.

His journeys to the Middle East gave him an insight into the misrepresentation of the scholastic tradition of the Subcontinent in Arab lands, thus motivating him to write in Arabic. As a result of these experiences, Allama Abd al-Hakim authored several treatises in Arabic and additionally authored a running commentary on Imam Fadl Imam al-Khayrabadi’s magnum opus in logic, ‘al-Mirqat’.
