As salaamu alai kumm wa rahmatullahi wa barakathu,
Here’s the download link of perhaps the most authentic book written on the history of the world famous Islamic seminary, Dar al Ulum Deoband, titled:
‘History of Dar al Ulum Deoband’
written by Maulana Sayyid Mahboob Rizvi and translated into English by Prof. Murtaz Husain F. Quraishi.
The book published in the late 70s was commissioned by the Shura [Managing committee] of the Dar al Ulum and supervised by the grandson of its founder, Hadrath Shaykh Maulana Mufti Qasim Nanautwi [Nawwarallahu Markadahu], Qari Muhammad Tayyib [Nawwarallahu Markadahu].
Its nearly a 900 page book chronicling the events, services and achievements [including its great sacrifices for the Indian Freedom Movement] of the blessed Islamic school since its inception to nearly 120 years of its existence up to 1980.
Right click on the images of the books and click ‘Save as’ to download the books to your computer. Each book’s file size is about 6 MB.
There is one more version of the scans which retain the old world feel of the book to a great extent and the quality too is the on a very very higher side, but its file size is about 130 MB each.
Download those copies here:

Volume Two: Link
My book which has been scanned for the purpose [actually taken apart] is actually a 32 year old copy and is well on its way to becoming a collector’s item because its no more in print and nor is it available in any book store across the world except for one single bookstore in Deoband.
This miniscule effort is for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.
Request for duas.
Wa alai kumm as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakath.
