Tazkiratul Huffaz: A Biographical Dictionary of the Memorizers of the Quran in Urdu

Tazkiratul Huffaz (تØÚØÛ ØÙØÙØØ) is a famous book by Imam al-Dhahabi (d. 748 AH), a renowned scholar of Islamic history and hadith. The book is a biographical dictionary of the memorizers of the Quran (huffaz) from the time of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) until the author's era. It contains information about their names, lineage, birth, death, teachers, students, works, virtues, and anecdotes.

The book was originally written in Arabic and has been translated into several languages, including Urdu. The Urdu translation was done by Muhammad Ishaq (d. 1981), a scholar and teacher of hadith at Darul Uloom Deoband. The translation was published by Islamic Publishing House, Lahore in 1981. It consists of two volumes and 530 pages.

The book is a valuable source of information for anyone interested in the history and preservation of the Quran. It also serves as an inspiration for Muslims to learn and memorize the Quran and follow the example of its noble bearers.
