Muhammed Atheeque PP
Reform movements are organized to carry out reforms in some specific areas. The reformers endeavor to change elements of the system for better. Reformation means making changes to something with the intention of setting it back on the right path. The aim of all reformers is to revive the society and empower the community. Whether it is social reformation or religious reformation, all kind of improvement in the world have done with the influence of reform leaders only. Difference between religious reformers and social reformers is religious reformers give more important to religious matters but social reform leaders give the conscious on every part of society. That’s why study of reforms will help to create new reformers or bring the new ideas to the society. Keeping in this view the present study attempted to understand Jamaludheen Musliyar (Usthad) as a Social reformer and brought out various contributions of Usthad in the field of education, charity, orphan care, religious awareness and social development and the influence of Usthad on people from beneficiaries’ perspective.
