Sir Syed Ahmad Khan (Sar Saiyid Aḥmad Khān, 1817–98) is known as the leader of the social and political reform movement called the “Aligarh Movement”, a modernization drive by Muslims in India, as well as the founder of the modernized educational institution, namely, Aligarh University. For the modernization of Indian Muslims, Ahmad Khan wrote many articles and essays in his own magazines, and the followers of Ahmad Khan also wrote many books and articles for the same purpose. The Aqeel Collection of Kyoto University has more than 200 books and magazines about Ahmad Khan and the Aligarh Movement. Among these books, there are some rare books and magazines that were published in the late nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, that is to say, in the contemporary period of Ahmad Khan himself. Although the founder of the Aqeel Collection, Dr. Moinuddin Aqeel (Mu‘īn al-Dīn ‘Aqīl), migrated to Pakistan during his childhood and grew up in the city of Karachi, the Aqeel Collection has quite a number of books and magazines that were published in India, especially in Aligarh, the center of the Aligarh Movement. That is why these books and magazines can cover most of the demands of research on Ahmad Khan and his movement. Since most of Ahmad Khan’s works were published from Pakistan’s state-financed institution for the promotion of Urdu literature, Majlis Taraqqī Adab, Lahore in 1970s, this annotation tries to introduce some other important books that must be essential for the study of this field and through the study of Ahmad Khan and his period we can recognize the whole perspective of the modernization movement in the Muslim society in South Asia from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth centuries.
