It is an established fact that AlaHadrat (Alaihir RaHma) gained proficiency in more that fifty branches of knowledge. With this, AlaHadrat (Alaihir RaHma) wrote many books on various aspects of Islam. AlaHadrat (Alaihir RaHma) was a genius writer. He wrote numerous books and treatises in Arabic, Persian, and Urdu on diversified topics.

To date, it has not been fully ascertained as to exactly how many books he wrote, for in doing so, requires research and many personnel. There has risen, over the past years, many Islamic Scholars in the Indo-Pak Sub-Continent and in other parts of the world, who are making serious attempts in studying or translating the works of this great Mujaddid of Islam.

In 1887, at the age of 30 years, he had completed 75 books and treatises. In 1909, at the age of 43 years, this number increased up to 500. However, It has been estimated that the number of books written by AlaHadrat Imam Ahmad Rida Khan Alaihir raHmah exceed 1000 on more than 50 branches of Knowledge. Apart from these contributions, he had written annotations and commentaries on more than 150 books pertaining to various branches of learning.

Professor Dr Muhammad Hassan, Shaikh-ul-Adab, Islamia University, Bhawalpur, said:

 

"Mawlana was a prolific writer. He wrote a large number of treatises. It is due to the fact that his head and heart had surging waves of knowledge which were hard to restrain."
 


From the many books that were written by him, a table of 549 have been classified. The table is as follows:

 

Tafseer of the Quran -- 11
Aqaa'id (Belief) -- 54
Hadith and Principles of Ahadith -- 53
Fiqh, Principles of Fiqh, Dictionary of Fiqh, Faraa'idh and Tajweed -- 214
Tassawwuf, Wazifas, Morals -- 19
Reviews of Books -- 40
Language, Arabic Grammar, Dictionaries, History, Poetry and Special Benefits, Traveling -- 55
Inspired Knowledge (Jafar) -- 11
Logarithms -- 8
Astronomy, Astrology -- 22
Mathematics, Geometry -- 31
Philosophy, Sciences, Logistics -- 7
Algebra -- 4

TOTAL AMOUNT OF BOOKS RECOVERED = 549
 


Professor Abdul Shakoor Shad, Kabul University, Afghanistan, said:

 

"The research works of Imam Ahmed Raza Khan are worth presenting. There is due need that Historical and Cultural Societies of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran together with other such institutions keep all his writings duly cataloged in their libraries."
 


His Divinely bestowed intelligence was such, that when AlaHadrat (Alaihir RaHma) completed a quarter of any given book at the feet of a teacher, he used to study and memorize the remainder of the book by himself. It is recorded that he completed an Arabic commentary on the book, "Hidaayatun Nahw", on Arabic Syntax, when he was only 8 years old!

Some people object that these 228 books are already included in Fatawa ar-Ridawiyyah published in 30 volumes by the year 2007. Some others gripe that these are small 'booklets' which consists of only a few pages. here is the retort:

----
Ali al-qari in his sharH of fiqh al-akbar who noted that our elders were 'qaleel al-kalam katheer al-barakah' / spoke less, yet told more. and we are 'katheer al-kalam qaleel al-barakah' / we tell less even though we talk a lot more. he was alluding to the relatively small size of fiqh al-akbar which is no more than eight or ten pages. consider the following:
 

When a prolific author writes many books, it makes sense to put them in one volume as a collection. it is easy for readers and researchers to find all or most of them in one place. for a bibliophile/librarian, easy to store and retrieve. this does not mean that one volume is ONE book. only a fool would suggest that.

Yet, these rasayil have been referred by scholars as 'books' without vehement hair-splitting.

---
Coming back to the rant of some folk who cannot probably even pronounce the names of AlaHadrat's books who attempt to downplay them as 'small' booklets. I would challenge them in a confrontationist tone to try and read these small booklets if they can; because if they have, they wouldn't talk so naively. Only the ignorant shrugs away the diamond in comparison with a rock; just because it is big does not make it valuable - just as the diamond's small size does not make it insignificant.

---
AlaHadrat's fatawa - legal rulings are collected in one place. some legal rulings require lengthy explanations and in my humble opinion anything more than five-ten pages can be classified as a booklet as opposed to 'an essay' or an article.

Those unaquainted with fatawa ar-ridawiyyah might think that AlaHadrat started writing fatawa from Vol. 1 and ended with Vol. 30 [one can quibble that the original fatawa was only 12 volumes - and takhrij made it double the size]

In reality, AlaHadrat issued fatawa from a young age, many of which were never recovered. he also issued lengthy rulings/fatawa and published in the form of booklets giving them exquisite names instead of simply numbering them. in the later part of his life, his students and associates suggested that his fatawa being so insightful and valuable ought to be preserved; it was only then people began to collect the fatawa. when fatawa razwiyah was being edited by AlaHadrat himself, it was only fitting that lengthy fatawa issued as epistles be included under appropriate sections.

Even in today's world these epistles are self-contained and are convenient to be published as separate works. for example take the issue of moon-sighting. how many people will buy thirty volumes, each of about 800 pages each to read those two or three epistles? naturally, it makes sense to print them separately and more so for online reading, where flipping pages to browse is not possible.

Even the names of his books impart knowledge. Try reading them in the arabic script and if you don't understand the meaning, look it up in a dictionary. in the process, you will learn a lot of other words along with etymology and usage. I am sure there are not many - if there are any - who can understand all the words used in these names without a dictionary.
