Two Weeks in Pakistan

Two Weeks in Pakistan is a captivating and descriptive travelogue of three Pakistani cities: Karachi, Lahore and Multan. The focus is on the various Islamic seminaries (madrasas) and great scholars (ʿulamā) and shuyūkh, both past and present. The majority of the discussion surrounds the world-renowned and prestigious seat of Islamic learning, Jāmi῾ah Dār al-ʿUlūm Karachi, and the honourable Shaykh Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani (may Allah protect him). The travelogue is a must read for anyone – in particular, students of sacred knowledge (tullab al-ʿilm) – seeking to learn about the major and magnificent religious institutions in Pakistan and those great souls from whom they take their magnificence. 

“Shaykh Muhammad ibn Adam takes the reader with him on the journey, intriguing and fascinating him at every step. With his sharp attention to the minutest of detail, he provides a very detailed and insightful account of our travels.” – Shaykh Badr al-Islam, Northampton, UK.
