Abdul Haq



Who is Abdul Haq?

Maulana Abdul Haq was an Islamic scholar from the city of Akora Khattak in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan, and the founder of the Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Haqqania in Akora Khattak. He was involved in politics as a member of the political party Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam. He served three times in the National Assembly of Pakistan and was an active proponent of the Khatm-i Nabuwwat movement.

Abdul Haq completed his religious education in India at Darul Uloom Deoband. He taught hadith at Deoband for four years until difficulties arose due to the partition of India. In 1947, he founded Darul Uloom Haqqania in Akora Khattak, one of the first Islamic seminaries to be established in Pakistan. He taught hadith at the madrasah for the rest of his life and was well known by the title "Shaykh al-Hadith".

His son, Sami ul Haq, succeeded him as chancellor of Darul Uloom Haqqania. Abdul Haq's sermons have been published by his son in two volumes containing over 1,300 pages, entitled Da`wat-i Haq.
