Ahmed Ali Lahori (1887 – 23 February 1962) (Urdu: مولانااحمد علی لاہوری) was a Pakistani Sunni Muslim scholar and Quran interpreter.[2] His students include Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi.[3]

Early life and career[edit]

Ahmed Ali Lahori was a student of Obaidullah Sindhi.[4] He studied Islamic studies and graduated in 1927.[2] Ahmed Ali Lahori was employed as a lecturer at his teacher's institute and also married his teacher's daughter. He also helped him in organizing new groups.[2] However, Obaidullah Sindhi died in 1944 before the 1947 partition of India. So Maulana Shabbir Ahmad Usmani led a group of Deobandi scholars including Ahmed Ali Lahori to support the demand for Pakistan movement and Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Therefore, this whole group came over to newly created Pakistan in 1947 and settled here.[4]

Death and survivors[edit]

Ahmed Ali Lahori died in Lahore on 23 February 1962 and was buried in Miani Saheb Graveyard. His son Obaidullah Anwar was an Islamic scholar.[2]
