Contributions

His passion for teaching was unwavering

Though his administrative duties increased significantly, his dedication to teaching did not wane. A key characteristic of his style of teaching was his insistence of fully clarifying a concept before moving onto another and his reluctance in leaving room for ambiguity or obscurity in meaning.

A teacher par excellence

On one occasion, after unravelling a particularly complex text, he approached a student of his in the early hours of the morning to share his newly found insight. When asked why he had not waited for daybreak, he answered that since one’s lifespan is unknown and the clarification of this complexity was a responsibility entrusted to him, he sought to fulfil it as early as he could.

A poet and litterateur

Syedi ʿImaduddin QR was a renowned poet and litterateur and his Arabic and Urdu prose and poetry display exceptional eloquence and an unparalleled proficiency in both languages. They are extensively studied in the course of Aljamea and are frequently recited in community gatherings.
