ABSTRACT: Saiyyad Abul A'la Maodudi has not only been a great Islamic thinker and revivalist of South Asia in modern history, but he has been a versatile writer at his early age. He showed a great interest in historiography of contemporary Turkey and Hayderabad State in later Moghal and colonial India. Hayderabad and Turkey, being his own and his ancesters' birth place, he took more interest in writing books on both these regions. He produced 3 books alone on Hayderabad: Daolat-e-Asefiya aor Hukumat-e Bartaniya: Siyasi Ta'luqaat ki Tareekh par ek Nazar; Tareekh-e Dakkan; Dakkan ki Siyasi Tareekh; in the age of thirty years. Besides these prominent books, he wrote a marvellous article on Futuhaat-e-Asefi: Asef Jah Awwal ki ek Manzoom Sawaneh Umri, written by Abul Faez Ma'ni Dehlavi. This article was written by Maodudi to introduce a very rare historical text on the age and political struggle of Asef Jah, the founder of Hayderabad State, in third decade of the 18th century. This book, according to Maodudi, is a highly valuable source for the history of Hayderabad and its founder that still not considered and used by any historian of the region. This article is based on an effort to introduce and evaluate Maodudi's article first time as it is still not listed in any bibliography of Maodudi and not known to the scholars and writers interested in Maodudi's works and academic contribution.

ABSTRACT: The objective of this research paper is to introduce Dar-ul-Islam Pathankot and its impacts on the society in the subcontinent. Dar-ul-Islam Pathankot was established as per advice of Allama Dr. Muhammad Iqbal, thorough dedication of Ch. Niaz Ali and hard work of Syed Abul A'la Maodudi in 1938 at Jamalpur in District Gurdaspur, Punjab. As this study is a historical and documentary research, so different books, magazines, periodicals, manuscripts, newspapers, speeches, reports, websites were used to collect information on the subject. Individual interviews were also conducted for this purpose. It is concluded that the educational plan of Dar-ul-Islam was undoubtedly great. Initial steps were taken and a school of basic education was also established according to the plan. It could be say that training work had been started in Dar-ul-Islam but the partition of India did not allow to begin academic activities there. It was such a movement that based on pure Islamic principles as far as its aims, objectives, curriculum, organization and teaching methodology was concerned.

جاپان میں مطالعاتِ اسلامی کی روایت بہت قدیم نہیں۔اس سے قبل کہ جاپانی مصنفین مطالعۂ اسلام میں دل چسپی لیتے، جس کی شہادت بیسویں صدی کے آغاز میں ملتی ہے، ہندوستانی انقلابی رہنما مولوی برکت اللہ بھوپالی نے جب اپنی سیاسی سرگرمیوں کے تسلسل میں وطن کو خیرباد کہااور ہندوستان سے نکل کر مختلف ممالک سے ہوتے ہوئے بیسویں صدی کے اوائل میں ۱۹۰۹ء میںکچھ عرصے کے لیے جاپان کو اپنا مسکن بنایا تو وہاں مطالعۂ اسلام کا بھی آغاز کیا۔وہ وہاں ۱۹۱۴ء تک ٹوکیو میں مقیم رہ کر زبانیں سکھانے والے وہاں کے سرکاری ادارے میں، جس نے بعد میں ’’ٹوکیو یونیورسٹی آف فارن اسٹڈیز‘‘ کی صورت و حیثیت اختیار کی، اردوکے استاد کی حیثیت سے منسلک ہوئے۔اس شغل کے ساتھ ساتھ انھوں نے اپنے طلبہ میں اسلام سے موانست بھی پیدا کرنی شروع کی جس کے نتیجے میں چند افراد نے اسلام قبول کیا۔
