Darul Uloom Waqf Deoband:
In India after the dreadful end of Mughal Empire in 1857 the very first Islamic intellectual reformist revolution rose in the North Indian town of Deoband. Hujjatul-Islam al-Imam Muhammad Qasim Nanawtawi established DarulUloom Deoband on May 30, 1866. Those who helped him in his mission were Haji Aabid Husain and Imam Rabbani Rasheed Ahmad Gangohiand others. At Deoband Imam Muhammad Qasim Nanawtawi reinstated the great intellectual legacy of Imam Shah Wali Allah of Delhi. Imam QasimNanawtawi’s DarulUloom Deoband became most prestigious seat of learning in Islamic Religious Sciences in Asia. In 1982 the legacy of Shah Wali Allah and Imam Muhammad QasimNanawatwi was protected by Hakeemul Islam QariMohammad Tayyib (Rector of Darul Uloom Deoband 1929-1983) in form of present Darul Uloom Waqf Deoband.
