Moulana Syed Ahmed Urooj Qadiri was a renowned Islamic scholar from India. His favourite topic was Tasawufff. He wrote a book by the name Islami Tasawoof. He was one of the torch-bearer of the Islamic Movement. He had served the cause of Islam in a number of ways. He had been the Editor of Zindagi Rampur and also Zindagi-e-nau when it was shifted to Delhi. He was a writer par excellence. He was a gifted poet. He wrote poems both in Urdu and Hindi. He had been the president of Idara-e-Adab-e-Islami Hind for many years. He never missed a weekly Ijtima in his life. He used to give either Dars-e-Quran or Dars-e-Hadhis inevitably in all major and minor Ijtemas of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind.
He passed away during the month of Ramzan in 1986. Today I read some obituaries written on him. They were very moving and inspiring. I thanked Allah that He bestowed me a chance to strive for the cause of Islam by being part of the Jamaat which produced such lumineries in the past.
