Abstract
Just two years after the Balakot tragedy, which had sent a wave of deep shock and sorrow throughout the ranks and files of the Mujahideen, uncertainty prevailed over. Yet the dismayed and dejected faces with tearful eyes had a gleam of hope as to the revival of the Muslims‚€™ glory. They sought a divine inspiration intuitively brushing aside the state of dejection of deprivation.

These were the days when a son was born to Shaikh Asad Ali Siddiqui. He was named Muhammad Qasim, while the record shows he was named Khurshid Hussain. And the coming days proved that this very child, on growing young, emerged as a great Islamic scholar of outstanding merit.

He was not only a great scholar, a Mujahid and an orator he was simultaneously an interpreter, a Mufti and an expert in Hadith. His writings was very neat and the speech eloquent and most impressive.

Although he died at 49, what he did sprawls over almost a century of work that a man of his calibre doing the same job could successfully accomplish in his short life span.

Maulana Nanotavi rose to eminence like a sun the dazzling light of which made the whole of the Indian subcontinent through his erudition and scholarship in the face of unwholesome conditions that prevailed at that critical juncture.

Indeed Maulana Nanotavi‚€™s meritorious services rendered for the service of Islam prompted me to make research on this great religious scholar under Prof. Dr Abdur Rashid. All the chapters listed above describe the Maulana‚€™s personality: his birth, early life and academic background, a few lines on his contemporaries and the accomplishments made in his lifetime in the prime of his youth.

I would like to express my gratitude to Prof. Dr Abdur Rashid of Karachi University for his continued moral support and assistance to make my most cherished dream come true. I should also like to express my thanks to all those who extended a helping hand to me in this respect.
