This man is the man who refused to accept the King Faisal Prize in 1994, saying: “I did not write what I wrote except for the sake of Allah Almighty, so do not corrupt my religion for me.”
This man non-Muslims embraced Islam at his hands (more than 40 thousand people) in France during the half century he lived in. He was fluent in 22 languages, and the last language he learned was Thai at the age of 84!!
He was not married; But he married science only and bore him 450 books in multiple languages, as well as more than 937 articles in various world languages.
He was washing pots by hand with his students during their trip in France, despite his very great scientific status at the time, when he was awarded the highest honor by the late President of Pakistan Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq for his distinguished works in the biography, he donated the value of the prize, which is one million rupees to the Institute of Islamic Studies in Islamabad, saying:
“If I accept the prize in this mortal world, what will I get there in the eternal abode?!
More on him
He was born in 1908 AD in Hyderabad in southern India, and he belongs to a family whose roots go back to the Quraish tribe. His family migrated from the Hijaz to Basra of Iraq for fear of the oppression of Al-Hajjaj bin Yusuf, then settled in India during the eighth century AD.
In 1934, he joined the French Sorbonne University, from which he obtained his second doctorate for his thesis entitled: (Islamic Diplomacy in the Prophetic Era and the Rightly Guided Caliphate), which later became his most famous book in Arabic entitled; (Political Documents Collection of the Prophet’s Era and the Rightly Guided Caliphate), which is his most famous book.
May Allah honored him by translating the Qur’an into French, and he is the first to prove that the hadith was written during the era of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, through the investigation of the newspaper (Hammam bin Munabbih), from the
Berlin manuscript after he investigated it and commented on it with an introduction in the history of hadith codification, and it was printed in Beirut, and this newspaper contains hadiths written by Abu Huraira, the famous companion on the authority of the Prophet, peace be upon him, known as the Sahih al-Sahihah.
Then Dr. Zubair Ahmad Al-Siddiqi showed him another copy of the newspaper in the virtual library “in Damascus.”
The doctor investigated this newspaper, compared its two copies, and wrote a supplementary introduction to the codification and writing of hadiths in the Prophet’s era, and proved with clear proofs and conclusive arguments that the hadith was written in the days of the Prophet,
The Prophet also wrote a book for the immigrants, the Ansar and the Jews to deal with them, and it is considered the first constitutional document of the Islamic state whose head was the Prophet peace be upon him
Thus, he refuted the false allegations spread by the enemies of religion; They say: The hadiths were not written until after the third century AH.
Its 138 hadiths came out, and this newspaper has been translated into “Urdu”, “French”, “English” and “Turkish”.
This man did not stop working and writing until after he was bedridden for two years before his death, as he was with his niece in the United States, and he died in 2002 AD at the age of ninety-four.
He is the eminence of Sheikh Dr. Muhammad Hamid Allah Haiderabadi Al-Hindi, may Allah have mercy on him and forgive him and accept it among the honest scholars, the sincere preachers

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
