Early life and education:

“Maulana Mohammad Salim Qasmi was born on 8/01/1926 = 22/06/1344 H. Friday in Deoband. He took admission in Darul­ Uloom Deoband in 1351 and completed his studies from beginning till the end. He learnt Nazirah and Hifz under Peer JiShareef Hasan Gangohi, Farsi books under Maulana Aaqilsb, Maulana Zaheersband Maulana Hasan sb. Besides, he learnt Kanzul Daqaaiq from Maulana Akhtar Husain, Maybuzi from Qari Asgharsb, Mukhtasar and Sullamul Uloom from Maulana Abdul Sameesb, and Hidaya from Maulana Abdul Ahad Sb. He studied Hadith books in the final year of Fazeelah Course under Shaikhul Islam Maulana Husain Ahmad Madani, Allama Ibraheem Balyavi, Maualana Aizaz Ali Amrohvi, Maulana Fakhruddin Sb.

He completed Fazilat course in the year 1948 = 1367H, and was appointed as a teacher in the same year in Darul Uloom Deoband. He got chance to teach all important books of Darse Nizami like Nurul-Eizah, Tafseer e Quran, Hidaya, Sharh Aqaaid, Mishkat, Abu Dawud, Bukhari, and many other important books. His Sharh Aqaaid class was largely admired.”

In 1982, when Darul Uloom Deoband witnessed a dispute, bordering on almost a turmoil, ultimately leading to the division of the Madrasa into two,
Maulana Mohammad Salim Qasmi became the administrator of Darul Uloom Waqf Deoband. The Waqf faction was the smaller of the two, and had difficult times with a big question mark on its very survival. If it could survive and then gained reputation and recognition, the credit entirely goes to Maulana Salim Qasmi.  He still continues to be the Rector and ultimate guide for the Madrasa.
