” We should not even think to ourselves that we belong to the fraternity of ‛ulamā’. My dear friends! It is no ordinary feat to become an ‛ālim. It is a very great thing. The real ‛ulamā’ are ‛Umar ibn ‛Abd al-‛Azīz rahimahullāh, Hasan Basrīrahimahullāh, Shāh ‛Abd al-‛Azīz Muhaddith Dehlawī rahimahullāh, Shāh Walī Allāh rahimahullāh, Shaykh al-Hadīth Maulānā Muhammad Zakarīyyā rahimahullāh, Hadrat Rāipūrī rahimahullāh, Hadratjī Maulānā Ilyās rahimahullāh, Hadrat Maulānā Husayn Ahmad Madanī rahimahullāh, Hadrat Thānwī rahimahullāh, Hadrat Maulānā Abul Hasan ‛Alī Nadwī rahimahullāh. These were ‛ulamā’ and fuqahā’.
These are the personalities who deserve the titles of ‛ulamā’, fuqahā’ and inheritors of the Prophets ‛alayhimus salām. ”
