--- About the Translator

Shaykh 'Abd al-Hadi al-Qadiri al-Ridawi
al-Shafi'i, was born on the 14th of Muharram 1371 Hijri (22nd September 1953) into a Noble family whose roots were deep in tasawwuf. His grandfather, Shaykh Muhammad Husain Chishti-Nizami, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (d.1339/1922) was a devout murid and servant of his Murshid-e-Kamil, the Qutb, Hadrat Shah Ghulam Muhammad Sufi Siddiqui al-Qadiri, al-Chishti-Nizami Habibi, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (D.1329/1911) - compassionately known as 'Hadrat Sufi Sahib.' He was brought by his Murshid to South Africa in the late 1800's.

Shaykh 'Abd al-Hadi was greatly influenced by his father, Shaykh 'Abd al-Wahhab Chishti-Nizami, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, (d.1401/1981), from a young age and hence, in 1969 left S.Africa to study Din in Bareilly Sharif, India. In 1971 he accompanied the Sufi Master, Mufti Azam-e-Hind, Imam Mustapha Rida al-Qadiri, al-Nuri, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, as his khadim for the Hajj pilgrimage. It was during this blessed trip that Shaykh Abd al-Hadi became a murid and honoured with the wikalat of Mufti Azam-e-Hind.  In 1976 he was entrusted with the khilafat of the Qadiriyyah Barkatiyya Silsila and the following year the ijazah of Hadith Silsalatuz Zahb.

The shaykh graduated from Jamia Radawiyyah 'Manazar e Islam' in Bareilly sharif in 1978 and finally returned to South Africa. The shaykh was appointed in charge of several institutions and served as Imam across many Masjids. However it was in 1986 he founded the hugely influential Imam Ahmad Raza Academy in Durban, South Africa. He went onto receive ijazah to narrate Hadith sharif from Sayyid Shaykh Muhammad 'Alawi Maliki al-Hasani, rahmatullahi 'alayhi in 1990, and in 1997 was bestowed khilafat of the Qadiriyyah Barkatiyya Silsila this time by Sayyid  Shah Ale-Rasul Hasnayn Barkati, Sajjadah of the Khanqah-e-Barkatiyyah, Marehra sharif, India. The shaykh continues to receive numerous other khilafats and ijazahs as well as many blessed and rare sacred relics, books and manuscripts from illustrious mashaykh and sufi masters from across the middle-east and Asia.

The shaykh has translated, written and published more than 70 books on various subjects in English and is still devoutly striving to publish more books for the benefit of the Muslim Ummah. The shaykh conducts weekly classes at the Imam Ahmad Raza Academy and also leads the Hadrah-e-Qadiriyyah (dhikr) on a weekly basis too. He is the Founder and President of the Imam Ahmad Raza Academy, Director of Barkatur-Raza Publications and the recently launced publishing house Sufi Pages.
