The individuals who are able to dispel the obscurities of the ego in order to make their reason strong, such individuals are called "the virtuous by knowledge".

About me

I am "The Aafī" and I edit mainly on the English Wikipedia. I write on issues related to Islam and India, one way or the other, and basically biographies of scholars associated with the Deoband and Jamia Millia Islamia.

I've expanded and improved a number of articles such as Abdur Razzaq Iskander, Ebrahim Desai, Mazahir Uloom and Shamim Hanafi. I have helped in promoting Mahmud Hasan Deobandi and Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind to Good article status, and have over 10 DYK credits and 12 ITN/RD credits, on this Wikipedia. A few of my articles have been linked on the OTD section as well.

My work

I help to reduce backlog at the RMT. I'm a Teahouse host and occasionally serve new editors with the "Wikipedia Tea". I've autopatrolled, rollbacker, new pages patrol, file mover and page mover rights on this Wikipedia. I'm a file-mover and a license reviewer on the Wikimedia Commons and an eliminator (an advanced right, close to sysop) on the Urdu Wikipedia. I became the first ever new pages reviewer on the Urdu Wikipedia on 11 February 2022. I'm a global-permissions VRT-agent and also help responding to queries related to Urdu Wikipedia.

I also train new editors as a part of the Adoption program of Wikipedia. On the 31st of July, 2021, I founded the DCW UG, a user-group recognized by the Affiliations Committee.
