History of Fazail Amal

The writing of the book Fazail Amaal took a span of 35 years. It started in 1930 and was completed in 1965. The reason for this lengthy duration is that the book was never entirely planned out by Maulana Zakariyya (RA). Each section was written at different times on the dying wish and requests from many legendary personalities. It was thus written with full Ikhlas, never to seek fame or name.

The book trails the life and struggles of Maulana Zakariyya from the start of his Da’wa journey, his companionship with Maulana Ilyas, his struggles during the 1947 India-Pakistan conflict, how his actions saved Muslims in India, etc. The book has been a beacon of light and guidance for many people worldwide.

The first book written was Fazail Quran, written at the beginning of Dhul-Hijjah 1348 AH. Maulana Zakariyya was 32 years old at that time.

Maulana Zakariya passed away on 24 May 1982 at Madinah al-Munawarah. He was 84 years old at that time. He was buried in ‘Jannatul Baqi’ the grave of the Sahaba. Many took this as a sign that he was a man of Haq, despite criticisms of his work. Maulana Zakariyya spent his whole life in the service of Deen.
