Justice Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah al-Azhari Justice Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah al-Azhari (may Allah be pleased with him) was an authenticated Shaykh and spiritual guide on the sufi path of the Chishti tariqa; founder of the educational institution of Dar al-‘Ulum al-Muhammadiyya al-Ghawthiyya (DMG Bhera, Pakistan) and Ghawthiyya Girls College; author of the renowned Qur’anic exegesis Tafsir Diya’ al-Qur’an and the seven-volume masterpiece on the life of the noble Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) Diya’ an-Nabi.

In June 1981, Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah began his judicial career at the Federal Shari‘a Court of Pakistan, where he subsequently served as its Chief Justice. The following year he became a justice of the Supreme Court of Pakistan where he served in the Shari‘a Appellant Bench until his demise in 1998. In 1980 Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah was awarded the ‘Star of Distinction’ by the Government of Pakistan. In 1993, he was awarded the ‘Decoration of Honour’ by the Government of Egypt.

Great scholars and mystics of his time testified to his spirituality and revivalism. In terms of spirituality, seeking the pleasure of Allah (most high), possessing tremendous love and devotion towards the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), concealing one’s own state and sheer steadfastness upon the shari’a were amongst his great attributes. Thus he is widely known as Diya’ al-Ummat, the luminary and light of the Islamic community.
