    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 307/316/L=03/1437) Hadhrat Maulana Ilyas (RA) is not the grandson of Shah Waliullah of Delhi (RA). And if you mean to know about Shah Muhammad Ishaq (RA) he was the grandson of Shah Abdul Aziz (RA). Shah Abdul Aziz (RA) had adopted him and appointed him his deputy. So he took the place of his grandfather and kept on benefiting the people for a long time.
