Nawāb Muḥsin al-Mulk Sayyid Muḥammad Mahdī ʿAlī Khān
“Moulānā Sayyid Abū al-Ḥasan ʿAlī al-Ḥusaynī Nadwī’s Opinion Regarding the Book and the Author
Nawāb Muḥsin al-Dowlah Muḥsin al-Mulk Munīr Nawāz Jang Sayyid Mahdī ʿAlī ibn Sayyid Ḍāmin ʿAlī al-Ḥuṣaynī (1253 A.H – 1325 A.H) hails from an ancestry of celebrated and prominent graduates, intellectuals and modern scholars of India of this age. Owing to his extensive study, sound nature and deep contemplation he accepted the creed of the Ahl al-Sunnah. On the invitation of Nawāb Mukhtār al-Mulk he went to Hyderabad in 1291 A.H and sat on high platforms and made far-reaching reformations thereby attesting to his intelligence and organizational skills. He travelled to England in 1305 A.H and saw the universities there and remained a supportive hand in the life of Sir Sayyid. In 1315 A.H (1897), he was elected as the secretary of Madrasat al-ʿUlūm Aligarh (M.A.O College) and Muḥammadan Educational Conference and remained in this position till the end of his life. The college progressed exceptionally in every field during his time.
Nawāb Muḥsin al-Mulk has an awe-inspiring overpowering personality. He has the articulacy to lecture the entire night and is a proficient writer. His book Āyāt-e Bayyināt is a tour de force in its field.
What Nawāb Muḥsin al-Mulk (Moulānā Sayyid Muḥammad Mahdī ʿAlī) has written in Āyāt-e Bayyināt of his eye witness observations of the Shīʿī sect’s beliefs and attitude towards the noble Ṣaḥābah, will have a remarkable effect on a person with sound disposition. To add on to it or to superbly debunk this marvellous work on both an emotional and intellectual level is next to impossible.
