Hazrat Maulana Hemayet Uddin Sahib can be said to be the father of two complete scriptures. (1) In the past, scattered information of Islamic psychology was scattered in the writings of Akabir Aslaf. But he was the first to combine all the issues related to Islamic psychology to transform Islamic psychology into a complete scripture and wrote a book called ‘Islamic Psychology’. As such, he is the father of complete Islamic psychology. (2) In the past, there were various books of Ulama Keram only on the information of Ilmunnujum or astrological geography of Islamic geography. There were other scatterbrains of geography. But he was the first to combine all the issues related to Islamic geography and make Islamic geography a complete scripture and wrote a book called ‘Islamic Geography’. As such, he is the father of complete Islamic geography.
In the awakening of the inspiration of knowledge and science
At one time the ulama and talaba had very little interest in Islamic psychology and Islamic geography and maps. He has trained on these two subjects for a long time. Many of the trainees are now training in these two subjects. As a result, the curiosity of Ulama and Talaba towards these two subjects has also increased.
Some of his writings continue to play a role in reforming Muslim society. At one time in our society there were misleading books like Maqsoodul Muminin and Neyamul Quran in learning all the Islamic rules and regulations. The book ‘Ahkame Zindegi’ written by Maulana Hemayet Uddin Sahib with all kinds of rules and regulations of life is now taking place in every house and conveying the correct knowledge about all the faith-aqeedah, muamala muasarah, masala masayel of worship and moral character. At one time in many mosques of the country, the narration was completed by saying something like a story. The statement of the mosque would not have been discussed in the way that Islam has given direction to all aspects of life. As a result, people were unaware of many aspects of life. In order to remedy this condition, he wrote a book titled ‘Bayan O Khutba’ for the purpose of Imam and Khatib. This book called Bayan and Khutba is completed in 3 volumes. It contains all kinds of statements to discuss throughout the year and all aspects of life. The book has reached the imams and khatibs in the mosques. Al-Hamdu Lillah Many mosques in the country are now discussing all aspects of life, subject-based systematic discussions.
