He has published widely in Urdu, Persian, Arabic and English, including translations (like his work on Shah Wali Allah), editions of Arabic texts (such as a renowned critical edition of Usul al-Shashi in Hanafi jurisprudence), and original monographs (on Islamic law, women hadith narrators and such figures as Abu Hanifa and Sayyid Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi).
