Abstract

The society of Indo-Pak Sub-Continent has experienced ups and downs throughout its history in terms of politics, economics, social and educational. Death of Emperor Awranzēb Alamgīr (d. 1707 C.E.) (Ruled 1658-1707 C.E.) was the turning point of the Sub-Continent when its decline was started. In the same decade Shāh Walī Allāh (1703-1762) was born in 1703 C.E. when the society was falling down in every sphere. At this point, he started thinking continuously to bring it out from this terrible situation. Accordingly, he put his reformist efforts in terms of spreading awareness from religious to national affairs among his followers and successors along with practical measures. This paper examines Shāh Walī Allāh’s those contributions to the society in a historical manner and explores the possibilities of peace and prosperity in a society.
