Biography of Shaykh AbdulHadi Umri
Shaykh Rizwanullah Riazi wrote about Shaykh AbdulHadi Umri in “Allamah ibn Baz Yadoon ke Safar mein”:
“This article was written by the honourable Shaykh Muhammad AbdulHadi Umri Madni (may Allah preserve him). He was born in Hyderabad in 1956, his father’s name was Muhammad Afzal. His household brought him up in a pure and clean Islamic atmosphere. The deep inclination and Islamic environment of this household can be measured by the fact that there were three brothers in this family and the three of them graduated from Madeenah University. The eldest brother is Shaykh AbdurRahman Madni, the second brother Shaykh Abdullah Madni and the third himself Shaykh Muhammad AbdulHadi Madni.
His eldest brother Shaykh Abdullah Madni is among my compassionate teachers. He taught me at Jamiyah Dar As-Salam in Umerabad in the second and third year. Shaykh Abdullah Madni is an unrivalled Khateeb and of very high behaviour, whoever sits in his gatherings cannot not be delighted.
Shaykh Muhammad AbdulHadi Umri Madni was very skilled in reading and writing since young, and he always held high status among his friends. He graduated from Jamiyah Darussalam Umerabad in 1977 and after went for higher studies in Madeenah University. He completed his studies in 1981 in Madeenah University and went for preaching in UK in 1982. There he attached himself to Jamiat Ahl e Hadith Birmingham and because of his skills and high behaviour, he was appointed as general secretary of Jamiat Ahl e Hadith Birmingham in 1987 and he occupied this position up to 1993. Afterwards he was appointed 2 times consequently as president of the Jamiat…
Possessor of high morals and behaviour, he is a very humble person, whoever meets him cannot remain not affected by his speech and high behaviour. I have heard about him in his absence from many people and all of them praised him. With UK, he also took part in conferences of different Islamic groups and people benefited from his speeches. His scholarly and writing skills can be measured by the fact that he is the editor of the monthly magazine “Sirat e Mustaqeem” which is the organ of Jamiat Ahl e Hadith UK. Whoever is reading this magazine constantly can see the skills of the Shaykh.” End of Shaykh Rizwanullah Riyazi.
