Sidi Shaykh Abdul Ghafoor Hazarvi

 Shaykh-ul-Qur’an Abu al-Haqa’iq Muhammad Abdul Ghafoor Hazarvi (rahimahullah) – May Allah give us an ounce of his knolwedge and love he had for the Beloved Prophet (peace be upon him). Many people would go mast when he would deliver his speeches. You need the heart to be able to feel it. Ghazali-e-Zaman Syed Ahmad Saeed Kazmi Shah Sahib would consider himself uneducated in front of him.

Hazrat Shaykh-ul-Qur’an did bayat on the hands of Syed-us-Sadaat Pir Syed Mehr Ali Shah at the age of about 11 and asked him to pray that he becomes a Moulvi. Pir Mehr Ali Shah Sahib said to him that “jaao! eik din tum bohot barei moulvi bano gei” (moulvi was the title used for alim in those days).

Shaykh-ul-Qur’an studied from the top scholars of his time including the most erudite of scholars Moulana Muhib-un-Nabi Sahib. Shaykh-ul-Qur’an completed the Dawra Hadith from the elder son of Ala Hazrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan, namely Hujjat-ul-Islam Hazrat Hamid Raza Khan Barelwi in Bareily Shareef. Hujjat-ul-Islam gave this blessed student of his khilafat hence why you see Qadri written on his gravestone too. SubhanAllah he had faiz from both Golra Sharif and Bareily Sharif.

As well as being one of the best speakers in India/Pakistan, he was also a great mudarris too and in the month of Ramadan Sharif especially he would teach Dowra Qur’an to advanced students over the 30 days.

Hazrat Shaykh-ul-Qur’an was also a brilliant debater and he had his gifted ability to answer and reply spontaneously.

Huzoor Shaykh-ul-Qur’an shared a close relationship with Huzoor Muhaddith-e-Azam Pakistan Moulana Sardar Ahmad Qadri, also note that both had studied under Hazrat Hamid Raza Khan Sahib.



  1. Assalamoalaikum.
    I’m not his mureed but has seen him, heard him, had a chance to talk to him in my school days. My maternal grandmother ‘’bayji’’ was his mureed and she would admire him and his intellectual abilities very often. I myself being wazirabadi loved him. I was there to visit his blessed body before his burial. I still remember maulana abdul shakoor not sitting on his pulpit out of respect for days after his death. May Allah bless both of them with the highest rewards in the Paradise and May the mission they started continue through their decendants till the Day of Judgement. Aameen thum Aameen.

  2. Kindly update more Hazrat sahib’s biography. May his soul rest in peace Aameen

  3. AOA.I am lucky to be a part of Hazarvi family as being a great grandson of Hazrat sheikh ul quran r.a.May ALLAH S.W.T bless all the lovers of Hazrat sheikh ul quran r.a ameen
