An Alim at Hard Times: Autobiography of Shah Waliullah Dihlawi
Shah Waliullah is one of the last great representatives of the classical world, who started his scholarly life in a time when the Muslim world had begun to confront the challenges of modernity and when the Indian subcontinent had begun to feel the colonial activities of the British. He thaught at the Madrasa founded by his father Shaikh Abdurrahim in Delhi. In this paper, after some remarks about Waliullah's life and the reception of his thought in the modern period, we present a translation of his autobiography, al-Cuz al-Latîf fî Tarcamat al-Abd az-Zaîf, written in Persian. In the end, his works will be analyzed under three titles.
