    Question Azhar or Deoband?

    Report bad ads?


    A thread on an Islamic forum was on the question of where to study the Islamic sciences, Azhar in Egypt or Deoband in India.
    Many respected brothers and sisters gave cogent reasons for choosing either of the two. I do not wish to comment on al Azhar because of my lack of knowledge and the geographical distance between my country and Misr but I have had the opportunity of visiting Dar al 'Uloom and of having a ta'alluq with Fida-e-Millat Shaykh al Sayyid Hadrat Mawlana Arshad Madani and being in touch with various other Deobandi 'Ulama. The following lines from an Urdu tarana best express what one will get, Inshallah from studying in Deoband:

    "......Ruumi ki ghazal,
    Raazi ki nazar,
    Ghazzaali ki talqeen yahaan,
    Raushan hai Jamaal-e-Anwar se Paimaana-e-Fakhruddin yahaan……"
    'Alaykum Salam.
    Azhar or Deoband?

    What is now proved was once only imagined.

    For Indonesian Muslim people, Al Azhar is the first choice to learn Islam. Followed by some places in Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Deoband in India is not in the list. It's because Deoband follow Hanafi fiqh, and Maturidi aqidah. Different than Indonesian Muslims who majority follow Shafi'i fiqh and Ashari aqidah, while the rest are non-madhab.

    Just for information.

    Assalamu 3alaykum,

    Being in Hind- Wouldn't it be easier for you to study at Deoband?

    Masha'Allah one video I came across of dars in deoband -the completion of Saheeh Al Bukhari. Ah the joys of being tulabaa e 3ilm al7umdulilah.

    Yes, Sidi I am aware.
    Many non-Hanafis come for higher studies, particularly in the field of hadith and research to Deoband. For eg. Shaykh TaHa Karaan of SA is a Shaafi'i 'alim of SA who has studied in Deoband. Many top scholars of the world from other masaalik also have ijaza to narrate hadith from Deobandi scholars.
