Product Description

Hardback - 238 pages

 

 One of the most charismatic personalities of South Asia, Shaykh Nizam-u'd-din Auliya Allah be pleased with him, was leader of the premier Chishtiya order in Delhi from 1244-1325. A scholar and a mystic he left a lasting impression on the life and thought, not only of his contemporaries, but also of subsequent generations. Renowned historian K.A. Nizami provides here an account of the saint's legacy and spiritual quest that displays documentary history at its best.

Nizami brings alive the story of the saint's life, from his birth into an immigrant Muslim family; his childhood as a fatherless boy; his growing up years in Delhi; to his work spread over sixty years. Arguably the most popular saint of the Delhi Sultanate, the Shaykh's role in the history of South Asia was of immense significance. Nizami judiciously sifts fact from fiction, through careful critical reading of records of conversation (
malfuzat), biographical accounts (tazkirabs), letters, and early medieval manuscripts including the Qiwam-i'l-'Aqa'id used for the first time here to reconstruct the Shaykh's life.
