Dr. Israr Ahmed was a magnanimous, towering personality in the Muslim World who spent his life in the service of Islam. He was a spiritual intellectual having a true and clear understanding of the meaning of Islam and being a Muslim. For over half a century he lived his life by Quran, he taught Quran, he propagated Quran and preached Quran in most comprehensible way. He made Quranic teachings easy for a common man to understand. He was not only well-versed in Quran and Hadeeth but he also had a very strong grip on various subjects such as philosophy, social sciences and spirituality with true Islamic perspective.
He tirelessly worked to clear the concepts of Muslims of the World in general and Pakistani Muslims in particular on various religious issues and he delivered the knowledge based purely on Quran, Hadeeth, Authentic Islamic literature, and Islamic/World history. He can be regarded as a contemporary scholar as he also had a critical eye on current regional and global affairs. He believed in a non-violent revolution to bring about a positive change and to employ the method of Rasool-Allah (s.a.a.w.s) to establish an Islamic welfare state on the line of Khilafat-e-Rashida.
He was a staunch pro-Pakistani and a strong proponent of Iqbal’s ideology. His dream was to see Pakistan as a prosperous, just and peaceful Islamic state. He spent his entire life in the struggle to make Pakistan what it ought to be and the fulfillment of the promise that we made with Allah. He influenced millions of hearts and he has a very large number of people coming to the straight path to his credit.
Dr. Israr’s struggle, his effort, his mission shall not stop here. His mission to propagate Islam and the teachings of Quran above all ethnic and sectarian differences will go on. His students will march on and his mission to work for the transformation of Pakistan into a true welfare Islamic state and the revival of Islam will go on, Insha’Allah.
“Kia ajab meri nawa haye seher gaahi say
Zinda ho jaye woh aatish kai teri khaak mein hai
Torh daalay gee yehi khaak tilsm-e-shab-o-roz
Garchay uljhee hui taqdeer kai pechaak mein hai”
