Dr. Israr Ahmed, (April 26, 1932 - April 14, 2010) was a Pakistan-based Muslim religious scholar followed particularly in South Asia and also among the South Asian diaspora in Middle East, Western Europe and North America. Born in Hissar, (today’s Haryana) in India, the second son of a government servant, he is the founder of the Tanzeem-e-islami, an off-shoot of the Jamaat-e-Islami. He hosted a daily show on Peace TV, a 24 hours Islamic channel broadcast internationally, and until recently on ARY Qtv.

His supporters describe him as having spent the “last forty years” actively engaged in “reviving the Qur’an-centered Islamic perennial philosophy and world-view” with “the ultimate objective of establishing a true Islamic State, or the System of Khilafah.” Ahmed is skeptical of the efficacy of “parliamentary politics of give-and-take” in establishing an “Islamic politico-socio-economic system” as implementing this system is a “revolutionary process”.


Controversy has accompanied statements he has made about Ali ibn Abu Talib, Jews and conflict with non-Muslims.

Dr. Israr Ahmad first appeared on Pakistan Television in 1978 in a program called Al-Kitab; this was followed by other programs, known as Alif Lam Meem, Rasool-e-Kamil, Umm-ul-Kitab and the most popular of all religious programs in the history of Pakistan Television, the Al-Huda, which made him a household name throughout the country His television lectures generally focused on the revitalization of the Islamic faith through studies of the Quran.

Dr. Israr Ahmed relinquished the leadership of Tanzeem-e-Islami in October, 2002 on grounds of bad health and Hafiz Aakif Saeed is the present Ameer of the Tanzeem to whom all rufaqaa of Tanzeem renewed their pledge of Baiyah.

The veteran scholar died of a cardiac arrest at his home in Lahore on the morning of 14 of April 2010 between 3:00 - 3:30 AM. According to his son, his health detriorated at arround 1:30 in the morning with severe pain in the back, he was a long time heart patient.

His funeral (Namaz-e-Janazah) is planned after Asr (afternoon) prayers at model town park lahore.

Allah brings forth such personalities very rarely and we were lucky to have him amongst us but today we have been orphaned by such a person.I did spend quite an amount of time understanding Quran but it was no where close to understaning it, once I started listening to Dr Israr Ahmeds lecture on tafseer Quran on Tv my life changed totaly my way of understanding of this world and world hereafter was becomming more and more clearer. I wish more and more umma should take the maximum benefit from his video cds of tafseer- e- quran . May ALLah grant himthe highest place in jannah and till then let us pray allah grant him a peaceful rest with breeze from jannah. AMIN

DR. ISRAR'S DEATH IS ANOTHER BIG LOSS OF MINE. FIRST WAS MY FATHER MR.REHAN FAROOQUI(REHMATULLAH ALLEH). HE WAS THE ONE WHO INTRODUCED DR.ISRAR TO US. DR.ISRAR WAS THE ONE FROM WHOM I COULD UNDERSTAND ISLAM THE MOST, SPECIALLY HIS SPEECHES ON PHILOSOPHICAL TOPICS OF QURAN. HIS DEATH IS THE BIGGEST SAT BACK FOR THE MUSLIMS OF THE WORLD. INDEED HE WAS A "MARDE MOMIN", AND HE WILL GET JANNATUL FIRDOUS.INSHALLAH. MAY ALLAH SUBHANUTALLAH BLESS HIM WITH ALL THE BLESSINGS YOU PROMISED TO GIVE.AMEEN FARZANA FAROOQUI
