Abu Taher Misbah (Bengali: আবু তাহের মিসবাহ; born 6 March 1956), also known as Adib Huzur (Bengali: আদিব হুজুর), is a Bangladeshi Deobandi Islamic scholar, academic and author.[1][2] He is the founder of Madani Nesab, and the first textbook that he wrote for it, Eso Arabi Sikhi, is read as the primary textbook of Arabic learning in Bangladesh.[3]

Early life and education[edit]

Abu Taher Misbah was born on 6 March 1956. His father's name is Mishbahul Haque. Although his ancestral home was in Comilla, he grew up in Dhaka. After studying in Jamia Qurania Arabia Lalbagh, Jamia Nooria Islamia, he completed Dawra-e Hadith (MA) from Al Jamia Al Islamia Patiya in 1977.[4]


He started his career as a teacher at Jamia Islamia Darul Uloom Madania. Later he taught in Jamia Nooria Islamia for about 25 years. While teaching at Nooria Madrasa, he started an education reform movement by publishing the handwritten Arabic magazine Iqra. Later, Madrasatul Madina was established in the light of his thinking.

Since then he started writing experimental textbooks for Madani Nesab. Later, the teaching method he introduced spread throughout the country.[5] The first textbook he wrote for Madani Nesab was Eso Arabi Sikhi, which is read as the primary textbook of Arabic learning in Bangladesh. Other textbooks authored by him include: Ēsō Saraf Śikhi, Ēsō Nāhu Śikhi, Ēsō Bālāgāt Śikhi, Ēsō Fikāh Śikhi, Ēsō Urdu Śikhi, Ēsō Kalam Mērāmat Kari, Islāmkē Jāntē Halē, Āt Tāmrin, Ēsō Tāfsir Śikhi. Ēsō Kōr'ān Śikhi is the first introductory book on the Qur'an for madrasa students in the Indian subcontinent. Al Manar and Al Muzamul Wasit are two modern Arabic-Bengali dictionaries written by him.[5][6]

In 1992, he founded Madrasatul Madina under the supervision of Abdul Hai Paharpuri in the light of his thinking.[4][7]

Literary works[edit]

He is the founding editor of the Bengali literary periodical Masik Al Qalam (Pushp). In the field of Bengali literature, he has shown a new way to the scholars. Many of his disciples devoted themselves to Bengali literary practice.[8] He translated Abul Hasan Ali Hasani Nadwi's Islam and the World, Saviours of Islamic Spirit, Arkane Arbaa, Al Murtaza, Qasasun Nabiyyin and Taqi Usmani's Legal Status of Following a Madhab, Hadhrat Ameer Mu'awiyah aur Tareekhi Haqa`iq into Bengali. He also translated Guru Dutt Singh Dara's Rasul-e Arabi.[9] His travelogue of Hajj as a young man with Muhammadullah Hafezzi, Baitullah's Musafir, Aso Kalam meramat Kari, In Search of Turkistan in Turkey, etc. are his outstanding creations in Bengali literature.[5][10] Child Aqeedah series, Child Seerat series etc. are notable additions to his children's literature.[11]
