The entire gamut of literary thoughts of Khanbahadur Ahsanullah (r.) originated from his deep feelings for his country, his language and his desire to do good for the human kind. In the entire life, he relentlessly tried his hand on literature and creative writings. He wrote many books on spirituality, history, literature, Muslim traditions and the principles of Islam to bring about a renaissance in the lives of a decaying Muslim population of the time. Along with reflecting on the beauty of Islam, he presented in his writings, the inherent loftiness and the very essence of such religious creeds which made them so unique.

The very skill of his writing and the novelty in the presentation of the subject matters which had an unmistakable individualistic touch, transcended them from the temporal to the eternal, eventually earning them the honour of creative literature. By involving himself with the activities of various literary organizations, he also made literary endeavours and practice easy for others.
