My Ph.D dissertation is a "Comparative Analysis of Sheikh Ahmed Sarhandi and Shah Waliullah as revivalists". Though much has been written on this topic yet the comparative analysis of both these personalities has never been done before inclusive way with special order. The objective of writing this thesis was to expose the services of the families of Sheikh Ahmed Sarhandi and Shah Waliullah for the cause of Islam. I have categorized my thesis into six chapters. The first chapter includes revivalism and its history. The second chapter is entitled as The Torch-Bearers of the movement of the revival of the Region. This chapter covers the life span of Sheik Ahmed Sarhandi and biography of Shah Waliullah. The third chapter presents the back-ground of the reformative achievements. The forth chapter covers the reformative and the revivalistic achievements. This chapter has further been distributed in three sections. This chapter vividly describes those revivalistic endeavors which made them Revivalists. The fifth chapter is about the spread and perfection of the revivalistic task. The first section comprises the revivalistic endeavors of the successors of Sheikh Ahmed Sarhandi whereas, the achievements of the successors of Shah Waliullah have been discussed in the second section. The sixth chapter presents in the comparative analysis of Sheikh Ahmed Sarhandi and Shah Waliullah as revivalists. In the beginning of the chapter, the meaning of comparative analysis, its beginning, significance and the rules and the regulations have been discussed. After that, the comparative analysis has been presented under different headings. In the last portion of the chapter, the allegations put against these personalities and their impacts have been described and it has been demonstrated who actually are revivalists and how their thought - provoking teachings can be helpful in today's age of turmoil.
