Maulana Azad, Islam and the Indian National Movement

Syeda Saiyidain Hameed

Oxford University Press

Abul Kalam Azad resigned as editor of Al Nadwa and transferred to Vakil in Amritsar, where he stayed from April to November 1906. In Vakil, he translated the Arabic treatise Al Miratul Muslima (Image of a Muslim Woman). In December 1906, he joined the weekly journal Darul Saltanat in Calcutta but later returned to Vakil. The years between 1908, when his father died, and 1912, when Al Hilal appeared, shaped Azad’s political and religious goals and beliefs. The death of Maulana Khairuddin was a very important event that left a great impact on him. Immediately after his father’s death, Azad embarked on a journey to Islamic countries in West Asia, including Egypt and Turkey. In 1910 Azad wrote the story of Shaikh Sarmad, a Sufi saint-poet, as an example of the universal appeal of Islam and showed him as the symbol of Sidq-o-Wafa (truth and love).
