The scholars of Indo-Pak sub-continent have contributed significantly towards the science of Tafsir, Hadith Jurisprudence & Arabic Literature. They laid special emphasis on the Quran and Sunnah Shah waliulla bin Abd-Al-Rahim Dehlvi (111AH-1176AH) and his sons, Shah Abdul Qadir (123 AH) and Shah Rafiuddin translated the Holy Quran in Persian & Urdu language respectively. Similarly sheikh Abd-Al-Aziz (1239 AH) explained the Holy Quran Urdu the name of Tafsir-i-Azizi. Therein he explained the chapter Fatha(The opening Chapter) and half of chapter Baqara(The Heifer).
