Haji Shariatullah — was an eminent Islamic reformer of the Indian subcontinent in British India.
He is known for founding the Faraizi movement. Shariatpur District is named after him.
Shariatullah was born in into a petty Talukdar family at the Shamail, Madaripur sub-district, Faridpur District in Bengal. His father, Abdul Jalil Talukdar, was a farmer who was not very well off.

He is said to have visited Al Azhar. Shariatullah founded the Faraizi movement which was a religious reform movement in the 19th century for Bengali Muslims. The term Faraizi was taken from fard which means standing for compulsory and mandatory duties ordained by Allah.
Shariatullah instructed his followers to assimilate every religious duty required by the Shariatuplah as well as by the Sunnah, while remaining firmly in the Hanafi school of Islamic jurisprudence. Haji Shariatullah deemed British domination in Bengal as detrimental to the religious life of Muslims. The Faraizi movement thus began to circulate with astonishing speed in the districts of Dhaka, Faridpur, Madaripur, Barisal, Mymensingh and Comilla. Some Muslims, on the other hand, particularly the landlords of Dhaka, hence, reacted sharply against him and this caused whariatullah riot in Noyabari, Dhaka District.
Due to the reaction of these landlords and Hindu landlords and European indigo planters, this movement swelled into a socio-economic issue. Gradually incidents caused by the Faraizi movement could be witnessed in various parts of Bengal. The outraged landlords built up a propaganda campaign with the British officials, incriminating the Faraizis with mutinous mood.

Shariatullah shatiatullah placed under the detention of the police in more than one instance, for purportedly inciting agrarian turbulences in Faridpur.
