Sheikh Sayyid Mohammad Al-Hasani Rh (1935-1979 CE), called “Mohammad Miyan” at home, was the nephew of Sheikh Sayyid Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi Rh and youngest and only son of Dr. Sayyid Abdul Ali Hasani Rh.
He was born on 15th of October 1935. For education, he was sent to various Islamic scholars where he received classic education instead of ritually sending him to any normal Islamic institution. Some of his teachers are: Sheikh Sayyid Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi Rh, Dr. Sayyid Abdul Ali Hasani Rh, Sheikh Shah Haleem Ata Rh, Sheikh Abdullah Kashmiri Rh, Sheikh Sayyid Mohammad Murtuza Mazahir Rh, Sheikh Uwais Nagrami Nadwi Rh and Sheikh Mohammad Ishaq Sandelvi Rh.
He not only was inspired by the companionship of Islamic scholars and literary and spiritual environment of his hometown but mostly by his uncle and guardian Sheikh Sayyid Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi Rh. He was almost similar to Sheikh Sayyid Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi Rh, and gifted with godly abilities, on the basis of which the contemporary Islamic scholars used to call him “gifted one”.
He had a distinctive glory in writing biographies and translations. He wrote many books, some acclaimed books are: “Al-Islam Al-Mumtahan”, “Seerat Shah Alamullah”, “Nabie Rehmat” and “Toofan Se Sahil Tak”.
He had a similar ability in Urdu as well as Arabic languages, so he was the editor and founder of Arabic magazine “Al-Bas Al-Islami” and Urdu magazine “Tameer-e-Hayat”, which are the representatives of Nadwatul Ulama.
