Early Life and Education:
Mufti Muhammad Hassan (RA) was born in 1880 in Milpur, British India (now Pakistan) into a pious family of the Utmanzai tribe of Pathans. His father, Maulana Allah Dad, was a respected religious scholar who instilled in him a deep love for Islam and knowledge.
Hassan R.A. received his early education in traditional Islamic schools, where he excelled in his studies. Recognizing his potential, his family encouraged him to pursue higher Islamic learning. In 1896, at the age of 16, he enrolled at Darul Uloom Deoband, a renowned Islamic seminary in India.
At Darul Uloom Deoband, Hassan had the opportunity to study under esteemed scholars like Maulana Mahmud Hasan Deobandi and Maulana Anwar Shah Kashmiri. He immersed himself in the study of Islamic sciences, including Quranic exegesis, Islamic law, and Hadith. His dedication and intellectual prowess earned him the prestigious “Dars-e-Nizami” degree in 1903, signifying his mastery of Islamic knowledge.
During his time at Darul Uloom Deoband, Hassan Rahmatullah Alih developed a deep devotion to Sufism, influenced by the teachings of Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi. Thanwi, a leading Sufi scholar and spiritual guide, emphasized spiritual purification, adherence to the Quran and Sunnah, and service to humanity. Hassan R.A. became a close disciple of Hadhrat Thanwi and was eventually recognized as his “Khalifa-e-Arshad” (the most senior successor).
یہ عجوبہ بفیض و فضل مولانا حسن دیکھا
کہ امرتسر میں ہم نے اج ایک تھانہ بون دیکھا
سنا وہ درس قران دلی انکھیں کھول دی جس نے
معارف ہائے قرانی کا دریا موجزن دیکھا
Following the creation of Pakistan in 1947, Mufti Muhammad Hassan dedicated himself to serving the newly formed nation.
