'Allamah Anwar Shah Kashmiri was a towering figure in Islamic scholarship, recognised as an authority by scholars across the world.
This book provides a historical background of the Islamic activities that prevailed before and during Imam Kashmiri's time; analyzes his works and provides a critical assesment of his contributions to the fields of Qur'anic and Hadith sciences, Islamic Jurisprudence and Imam Kashmiri's unique stance and personal opinion on several major academic issues. As there is a paucity of works in English on 'Allamah Muhammad Anwar Shah Kashmiri, this book is a valuable addition.
