The great Syrian scholar, Shaykh ‘Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghuddah, may Allah shower him with his mercy, commented with regards to the famous seat of learning, Mazahir al-‘Uloom Saharanpur (UP, India):
The greatest blessing of this Madrasah is that it has produced the servants of hadith. The Shaykh, Imam Mawlana Khalil Ahmad and his successor Mawlana Zakariyya are among the prominent scholars of Hadith. I envy students who are able to benefit from the blessings of these men daily.
