MauālnāMuḥammadIsmāʿīl al-Ūdwī(1897-1970 CE) was one of the very prominent scholarly personalities of Pakistan. His life has been extensively studied and analysed in detail elsewhere. (See. IRJAH, Faculty of Arts, University of Sindh, Jāmshoro, Vol. 42, 2014). This paper mainly deals with the works of al-Ūdwī that he produced during the course of his life. This will bring forth to the reader his thought and personality through his Books on one hand and academic and intellectual history of Sindh to which he belonged and attributed on the other.
Abrahamic religions including Judaism and Islam have many similarities in their belief as well as ritual system. Based on these similarities, the some Orientalists claim that Islam is plagiarised religion from the preceding religion, i.e. Judaism. This paper compares two rituals of Judaism and Islam i.e. prayer and fasting. Based on this extensive comparison, this paper argues that the issue of similarities rather proves the originality of Islam and the continuity of the revelation that brought down from Allah.
