Allama Fazl i Haq Khayrabadi (1212/1791-1278/1861), rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, was the son of Allama Fazl e Imam Faruqi Khayrabadi (d.1244/1829), the 'Sadr us Sudoor' of Delhi. Allama Fazle Haq received his education in Islamic Sciences from Shah Abd 'al Qadir (d. 1230/1815) and Shah Abd' al Aziz, the Muhaddith of Delhi (1239/1824) and in rational sciences from his father. He had a phenomenal memory and memorised the Quran in a little over 4 months. Ha also completed the curriculum in Arabic, Persian and religious studies by the age of 13 and engaged himself in teaching.
Besides being a scholar of Islamic studies and theology, he was also a literary persona. More than 4,000 couplets in Arabic are attributed to him. He edited the first diwan of Mirza Ghalib on his request. On account of his deep knowledge and erudition he was called Allama and later was venerated as a great Sufi. He was also bestowed with the title Imam Hikmat & Kalaam (The Imam of logic, philosophy and literature). He was considered the final authority on issuing fatwas or religious rulings. He is perhaps most remembered for issuing a fatwa in favour of Jihad against the 'British' in 1857 and against the Wahhabi extremists. He sadly passed away in custody in the Andaman Islands, in 1861.
