Maulana Sanaullah Amritsari was an Ahl-e-Hadith (Wahabi) Muslim from British India, he was born into a family of Kashmiri descent. He was born on June 12, 1868 and died on March 15, 1948 in Sarghoda, Pakistan. He was a major opponent of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and the early Ahmadiyya movement. Sanaullah Amritsari served as the general secretary of Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadith Hind form 1906 to 1947. He was also the editor of the “”Ahle Hadees”” magazine. He moved to Pakistan at the Partition, losing his son in the process, and himself dying in Sargodha, Punjab, Pakistan, in 1948, after suffering from a stroke. Syed Muhammad Hussain Batalvi was also an Ahl-e-Hadith scholar who beefed with MGA uptil about 1902, Sanaullah seems to have stepped up for the Ahl-e-Hadith of India as they battled vs. Ahmadiyya. In 1907, he refused to enter into a Mubahila challenge vs. MGA, instead, MGA prayed that if he was a false prophet, he would die in the lifetime of Sanaullah. He had many debates and arguments with various Ahmadi leaders, he eventually wrote many books, the most famous book in terms of his battles with Ahmadiyya is Ilhamat-e-Mirza (1928)– a critical account of the ‘revelations’ of Mirza.
MGA mentions Maulvi Sanaullah by name in the Appendix of Anjam e Athim.
He published his famous commentary of the Quran called Tafseer Sanai. MGA quoted this book in 1902, as MGA called Abu Hurairah as stupid, since this commentary quotes a hadith from Sahih Bukhari wherein Abu Hurairah proved that 4:159 meant that Esa (As) hadn’t died yet. He gets into a debate vs. some Ahmadi’s. MGA mentions all of this in his book, Ijaz i Ahmadi. This debate was to be held on October 29, 30, 1902. Syed Muhammad Sarwar Shah and Maulavi Abdullah Kashmiri were to represent the Ahmadis at the debate, and Maulavi Sanaullah the other party. The debate was held in the open under a banyan tree. There were only three Ahmadis at the debate and over 600 non-Ahmadis were present. Maulavi Sanaullah
Amritsari fanned the feelings of the villagers by asserting that the Ahmadis were afraid of debates. When the terms were being settled Maulavi Sanaullah insisted that nobody should speak for more than 20 minutes despite the protest by Syed Sarwar Shah that the time fixed (20 minutes) was woefully inadequate.
Maulvi Sanullah visits Qadian.
MGA claims that Maulvi Thana’ullah was present at the famous Karam Din case (see Haqiqatul Wahy, online english edition).
He responds to MGA’s request for a Mubahila.
Haqiqatul Wahy is published by MGA. Maulvi Sanaullah’s name is mentioned 9 times, however, it is spelled as Thana’ullah. MGA connects Saadullah with Sanaullah, it seems that the two knew each other. Saadullah died in February of 1907.
Maulvi Sanaullah is mentioned in the Ahmadi newspaper Al-Hakam, as he argued that MGA’s prophethood only lasted 6 1/2 years, since it started in 1901.
Maulvi Sanaullah has a debate with top Ahmadi’s in Rampur. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq and Mualvi Ahsan Amrohi were there representing Ahmadi’s.
1911, roughly April or May
Maulvi Sanaullah comments on Mirza Basheer ud Din’s famous essay wherein the Mirza calls all Muslims as Kafirs (see Truth about the Split).
Muraqqaʻ-i Qadiani (The Qadiani Mosaic), 1917, 64 pages is published.
“Shahadat-e-Mirza” is published, Maulvi Sanaullah also published a 6-month challenge to all Ahmadi’s to respond. Tarikh-i Mirza (History of Mirza), 1923, 64 pages is also published.
In a 3-day conference held in Qadian on April 1-3, 1924, by non-Ahmadis, Maulavi Sanaullah boasted about his challenge and his books and claimed that no one had written a rebuttal (See Hidden Treasures). Jalal-ud-Din Shams when writing the introduction of Hudur’s book says: I came to know in December 1923 about the existence of this book, and when I came to Qadian I inquired whether anyone had received a copy of this book. As no one knew about it, I had to trace this book and wrote a strong rebuttal that appeared in the issue of April 1924 of the Review of Religions. Qadi Muhammed Zahooruddin Akmal, the editor of Review of Religions, in an introductory remarks to the rebuttal, said that he received the manuscript on January 31, 1924. The daily al-Fadl in its issue of April 8, 1924, carried the news that a copy of the issue containing the rebuttal of the book was sent to Maulavi Sanaullah under registered cover.
Nikat-i Mirza, 1926, 40 pages is published.
ʻAqaʼid-i Mirza (Beliefs of Mirza), 1928, 8 pages is published. “ilhamat-e-Mirza” is also published.
The Lahori -Ahamdi’s would often send Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi, while that local organisation would also have obtained the services of Maulana Sanaullah. So Maulana Sanaullah was on the same platform and in the same team representing Muslims with a well known Lahori Ahmadi scholar (who had taken the bai`at at the hands of the Promised Messiah in 1907)! As an example, we have a booklet entitled Munazira, published by the Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam of Hyderabad, Sind (an orthodox Muslim body), being the account of a debate between the Arya Samaj and Muslim representatives in January 1929.
Here is the link. (Opens in new window)
On the first day, Maulana Sanaullah appeared against a Pandit (see p. 14). On the second day, Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi appeared against another pandit (see p. 24). The speeches of all the representatives are reproduced.
Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi told us (including me) many anecdotes about Sanaullah’s replies at the debates which were sometimes silly. For example, an Arya asked “Can Allah create another God like Him if He is all-powerful?”, implying of course that there would then be two Gods. Sanaullah replied: Yes, Allah can create another God like Him, but the created God will say ‘I am not the real God’, so there would still be only one God. Maulana Abdul Haq said to us: I knew what a blistering reply the Arya would give to this foolish response, and so he did. The Arya said: This means that either the first God is wrong because he didn’t manage to create a God like him, or the created God is wrong because he is saying I am not a real God! So there is a conflict between the two Gods, one saying “I have created a God like Me”, and the other saying “No, I am not the real God”!
Once Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi published a challenge addressing Sanaullah and saying: You said in a gathering in my presence: “I (Sanaullah) have made a lot of money by opposing Mirza”. Can you deny saying this?
Maulvi Sanaullah had many public debates with an Ahmadi-Mullah named Maulana Abul ‘Ata Jallundhari. Maulana Abul ‘Ata Jallundhari was born in district Jallundhar in 1904. At the age of eleven his father brought him to Qadian for studies, where he completed his Honours in Arabic with distinction. For five years he served as the Missionary In-charge for Palestine, and acquired great proficiency in Arabic. He started al-Bushra magazine in 1933 and also started the magazine al- Furqan. He wrote numerous books in Urdu and Arabic. He served as the Principal of Jami‘ah Ahmadiyyah and Jami‘atul- Mubashshirin from 1944 to 1958. He was also one of the members of the delegations of the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jama‘at in 1953 and 1974 to the Government of Pakistan. He also served as a member of the Ifta’ [Jurisprudence] Committee for many years until his death. He is one of the three members of the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jama‘at who have been given the title, “Khalid-e-Ahmadiyyat” by Hadrat Musleh-e-Mau‘udra.(See Nubuwwat and Khilafat, 1966).
ʻAjaʼibat Mirza risālah “ʻIlm-i Kalam-i Mirza” ka doosra hissa (The Oddities of the booklet ‘Writings of Mirza as Literature’, part two), 1933, 25 pages is published.
What seems to be his final comments on Ahmadiyya were given in the Ahl-e-Hadees newspaper of 1944. The British had just won WW-2 and the idea of a Muslim state was always in the press.
“In August 1947, Amritsar was the scene of a mini-doomsday. The death-afflicting storm of rioting completely enfolded the residence of Maulana, and even though he succeeded in evacuating himself and his family out into safety, his only youthful son Ataullah was cruelly slaughtered under his very eyes and the horror of that grief minced his heart into pieces.” (Al Aitzan June, 15 1962 page 10).
Maulvi Abdul Majid Sohdarvi, biographer of Maulvi Sanaullah, writes: “The moment he left his house, vagabonds and looters who were waiting for the opportunity swept in and took everything, including all the household items, cash and jewelry. After looting and robbing, they put the house on fire. That was, however, not the end of it; the looters also put on fire and turned to ashes Maulana’s most precious and valuable collection of books which included some very rare publications worth thousands of rupees and which he had brought together after great pains and expense. The loss of these books was no less distressing to Maulana than the loss of his only son. Those books were the most valuable estate of his life and some of them were so rare that it was not only difficult but impossible to replace them” … “This violent grief remained with Maulana until his death and, in fact, these two tragic incidents were the major cause of his sudden death. The sudden loss of his only son and the burning of his most precious collection of books, and the affliction of both of these misfortunes over a short while claimed his life (Seerati Sanai, Maqbool Aam Press, Lahore).
