Zubair-ul-Ḥasan ibn Ināmul-Ḥasan Kāndhlawī c. (30 March 1950 – 18 March 2014)[2] was an Indian Islamic scholar.[1]

Early life and career[edit]

Zubair-ul-Ḥasan was born on 30 March 1950 in the town of Kandhla in present-day Uttar Pradesh, India. He studied at Mazahir Uloom Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. He was a disciple, and subsequently a khaleefa (an accredited successor) of his eminent maternal grandfather Shaikh-ul-hadees Maulana Muhammad Zakariya Kandhlawi who was also a celebrated Muslim leader and was an early and life-long booster of the globalisation of Tablighi Jamaat. Zubair graduated and completed his education in 1971. Maulana Zubair was the leader of the concluding prayers at the world congregations held annually at Bishwa Ijtema Dhaka, Raiwind and Bhopal.[1]

Due to his obesity, he was often seen in a wheelchair. He was largely known for his concluding prayers rather than his long addresses and speeches in front of large gatherings as Jamaat leaders before him, including his father, used to be known for.[1]

He was initially a member of the council of scholars (Shura) which was elected to run the affairs of Tableeghi Jamaat after the death of his father Maulana Inamul Hasan Kandhlawi.[1]

Death, survivors and legacy[edit]

In 1969, Maulana Zubair ul Hassan married Tahira Khatoon, daughter of Al-hafiz Ilyas of Shahranpur, one of the sons-in-law of Hazrat Shaikh-ul-Hadees Zakariah Kandhlawi. The couple had three sons and three daughters. The eldest son, Hafiz Maulana Juahir-ul-Hasan Kandhlawi, has become a well-known interlocutor of the Tabligh movement. Reportedly Zubair was obese, diabetic and not in good health for some time.[1]

Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid, Delhi, Maulana Syed Ahmed Bukhari said in his tribute that the late senior member of Tablighi Jamaat, Maulana Zubair ul Hassan was an important Muslim leader who worked for the benefit of the community. " He remained non-political throughout his life and only concerned himself with matters of religion."[1]
