It is sad to know that there are no khulafa of Hazrat Haeemul Ummat Hazrat Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi ra alive today.
Hazat ra passed away in 1943.
He gave ijaza to almost 150 blessed individuals. The youngest of these khulafa, Hazrat Mawlana Abrarul Haq sahib ra of Hardoi, India died last year.
However, there are few individuals who either made bayait with Hazrat ra or attended his blessed majalis still amongst us. These Shuyukh subsequently turned to Hazrat ra’s khulafa, completed their sulook and gained permission to accept mureeds.
Having observed Hazrat Thanawi ra directly, seeing him do the tarbiyah of mureedeen and explain the intricacies of tasawwuf & sulook these individuals are blessed with special barakah.
Shaykh ul mashaykh Hazrat Nawab Eshrat Ali Khan Qaiser sahib db, House # 32, Street 4, F6/3, Islamabad
Hazrat Rifat Ahmad Khan sahib db, House # 49, Block 2, PECHS, Karachi
Hazrat Dr. Tanveer Ahmad sahib db, Hyderabad, Sindh
For individuals seeking islah in Hazrat Thanawi ra’s silsila they are an immense treasure to benefit from.
