Hazrat Shaikh Hafiz-e-Hadis Moulana Muhammad Abdullah Darkhawasti was born in Darkhawast, a village in the city of Khanpur in the Rahim Yar Khan district of southern Punjab, British India in 1906. His father, Moulana Hafiz Mahmud, was a learned and pious scholar. Between the age of nine and eleven, Hazrat completed the memorisation of the Qur'an. Thereafter, he commenced his Arabic and Persian studies under Moulana Abdul Ghafur Hajipuri and Moulana Muhammad Siddique Hajipuri. By the age of eighteen, he had completed his studies in Arabic, Persian, and hadith and acquired a sanad in hadith from Moulana Muhammad Siddique Hajipuri. Hazrat also studied tafsir under Shaikhul Qur'an Moulana Husain Ali Wanbacharan (RA). Hazrat then became a murid of Moulana Ghulam Muhammad Dinpuri. He also became a murid of Moulana Ahmad 'Ali Lahori, who later bestowed khilafah upon him. Upon Moulana Ghulam Muhammad Dinpuri's instructions, Hazrat founded Madrasa Makhzanul 'Ulum in Darkhawast in 1926, where he taught Qur'an and hadith for fifteen years. The madrasa was shifted to Chawlsan in 1941 for five years and then to the Eidgah of Shahi Masjid, Khanpur in 1946. From then onwards, it became his habit to teach tafsir in Sha'baan and Ramadan only. Hazrat died in 1994 at the age of eighty-eight.

According to daily “Pakistan” (27 August 2003), Maulana Abdullah Darkhwasti (1891-1994) was born in a village called Darkhwast in tehsil Khanpur, Rahimyar Khan, in southern Punjab, and was trained by his father who was already a wali Allah. He learned the Quran by heart at the age of nine and learned his hadith at the age of 18. He became a hafiz of Quran and hadith and lived to the age of 103. During months of Shaban and Ramzan he followed the practice of teaching at the local seminary in Khanpur. Students from the entire Islamic world learned Islam from him, their number being 50,000. Maulana Darkhwasti came out into the streets protesting against the Family Law Ordinance of 1963 and was famous for his hunting of the Qadianis in Khatm-e-Nabuwwat movements. But he was the most virulent opponent of the PPP. When Zulfikar Ali Bhutto wanted to see him, he refused to go and warned that Bhutto should not dare to set a foot in his city. Darkhwasti belonged to the Deobandi school of thought and became chief of the JUI in 1962 ruling over juniors like Mufti Mehmood, Maulana Ghulam Ghaus Hazaravi, Maulana Ubaidullah Anwar, Maulana Muhammad Ajmal Khan, Maulana Samiul Haq and Maulana Fazlur Rehman. In 1988 he issued a fatwa declaring that a woman ruler was haram in Islam. He opened 500 seminaries with his own hands and patronised 4,000.
