Syed Abul A'la Maududi (alternative spellings of last name Maudoodi, Mawdudi, also known as Abul Ala Maududi; 25 September 1903 – 22 September 1979) was an Islamic philosopher, jurist, journalist and imam.  His numerous works were written in Urdu, but then translated into English, Arabic, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Burmese and many other languages.  He strove not only to revive Islam as a renewer of the religion, but to propagate "true Islam", (which he saw as) a remedy for the weakness from which Islam had suffered over the centuries.
