Muhammad Ilyas Kandhalawi
Muhammad Ilyas Kandhalvi was born in 1885 in a small town in the United Province of British India in a family of religious scholars. As a response to degradation in practice of Islamic principles and values among the common Muslim folk and efforts by organizations such as Arya Samaj to re-convert poorer sections of Muslims to Hinduism, Ilyas al-Kandhlawi revived the Tabligh Jamaat effort in the 1920s.

    More Details Hide Details Ilyas al-Kandhlawi used to live with his father at Nizamuddin, and, sometimes, with his maternal grandfather’s family at Kandhla. At Nizamuddin, his education was being neglected owing to the overfondness of his father and his own excessive occupation with prayers. Yahya, thus, requested his father that as the education of Ilyas al-Kandhlawi was suffering, he might be allowed to take him to Gangoh. The father agreed – and Ilyas al-Kandhlawi came to Gangoh in 1896 or early 1897 where Mohammad Yahya began to teach him regularly. Once Ilyas al-Kandhlawi told his brother of severe headache after which he could not bend his head even to the extent of performing the sajdah on a pillow for months. Gangohi's son, Hakim Masud Ahmad, who was his physician, forbade him the use of water for a long time which was unbearable to most of the patients. But with the strength of mind that was so characteristic of him, MI abided strictly by the advice of his physician and abstained from drinking water for full seven years, and, during the next five years, he drank it only sparingly.
