Mian Abrar-ul-Wahab Kakakhail (1935 – 2020) was born in Ziarat Kaka Sahib, a village near Nowshera Pakistan. The village is named after famous Waliullah Syed Sheikh Rahamkar Kakasahib (1576 -1653).
Mian Abrar-ul-Wahab was brought up by his father, Mian Fazal-ul-Wahab Kakakhail (1900 -1976), and was very close to him. His father was very active in politics and had participated in independence movements such as Silk Letter Movement, Anti-Colonial Movement and Reforms Movement. He was also the founding executive of Madrassa Nasratul Islam and Rahamkaria Liberary. He also represented All-India Muslim League as General Secretary Nowshera. Mian Abrar-ul-Wahab, from his young age participated in Pakistan independence rallies.
Mian Abrar-ul- Wahab was among the first few to partake and complete the very first Pashto Proficiency, High Proficiency, and Pashto Honours programmes. Designated as headteacher, he taught school children for 25 years between 1952 and 1977. He was also given the management responsibility of other 22 primary schools in Nowshera region. From his family life to professional engagement he led every effort from the front and exceeded every expectation. He never had a concept of day-off because he would rather prefer to be out and helping other as oppose to sit and relax at home. His family, colleagues, neighbours, and friends knew him as a person with great spirits in their circles. For his immediate and extended relatives, he was like a considerate father, his shadow of compassion helped them raise flags of successes. After his early retirement from education sector, he moved to Islamabad where he worked in the construction industry between 1980 and 1998. He used the opportunity to extend his circles and to continue outreaching people living in the city of his new abode.
He remained connected to people of his village. Alongside with late Mian Jamal Shah KakaKhail (former politician), he outreached 1000s of Kakakhails and followers of Hazarat KakaSahib and gathered them under one umbrella. The purpose was to provide a platform where issues were discussed and resolved. He collected and published data on Kakakhails that is now used as an immense source of information for our future generations.
He was a great lover of poetry and had studied Iqbaliyat (Allama Muhammad Iqbal’s books), Mirza Ghalib, Mir Taqi Mir, Mian Muhammad Bakhsh, N M Rashid, Khushal Khan Khattak, Ghani Khan and Rahman Baba. His books collection goes back to books from 16th century onwards, the collection include Books on Sunnah and Seerat-i-Muhamahadi (PBUH), Tafaseer Quraan, Islamic History, Indo-Pak history, Mysticism, Politics and Biographies. He regularly wrote columns for many mainstream newspapers.
Mian Abrar-ul-Wahab was a founding member of Islamabad Police Public Conciliatory Committee. The purpose of this committee was to resolve the public issues of minor nature and relive burden on smaller courts. He worked closely with police from Station In-charge to Inspector General of Police. His counsel and advice was always appreciated and implemented. He was presented with many awards for his work.
He was by nature a social workpe and a humanist. He worked closely with neighbourhood and mosques committees. He helped in building Masjids and getting them approvals from local authorities. Day or night, he would never step back from using his contacts to resolve neighbourehood concerns including but not limited to security and services.
The gruelling regime of his work left him with IBS, High Blood pressure, Heart and Chest diseases but with a personal work ethic he found it impossible to relinquish. He preached the importance of humanism, honesty, hard work and parenting provision.
His dream was to bring Mosques from all schools of thoughts on one page therefore this page is designed on his initiative. We hope that his dream will come true one day. May Allah bless him with highest ranks in Jannat Firdous Ameen.
