Description :

The Sufi Thought of Shaykh Sayyid 'Abdul Qadir Jilani... and its impact on the Indian Sub-Continent !

This excellent new publication deals with the Sufi thought of one of the most revered and influential sufis, Shaykh Abdu 'l-Qadir al-Jilani, may Allah be pleased with him, particularly its impact on the tradition of the Indian subcontinent.

A historical perspective is presented on the religious-political theorists of the time and pattern of administration. In an interesting study, it deals with the life and works of the saint and the emergence of Sufi thought and organisation of Sufi silsilas (chain).

The objective analysis leads to this conclusion that the Shaykh has not deviated even in the least from the fundamental teachings of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Beloved Prophet, May Allah bless him and grant him peace.


Preface : Tasawwuf (Sufism) as an Islamic science is being studied both by Muslim and non-Muslim scholars and the Orientalists with great interest and curiosity, yet with diverse objectives in their minds. Some regard it as mysticism, a few others categorise it as a form of ruhbaniyat (monasticism), while some treat it as spirituality or ’Irfan.

In fact, tasawwuf (Sufism) is a mediator between shari’at and haqiqat. Practising shari’ at in the most desired form that could guide a believer properly to understand the haqiqat; Ultimate Reality) in its totality is tasawwuf. It can also be termed as the esoteric aspect of the teachings of Islam.

In this book, which is a humble attempt to study the Sufi thought of Shaikh Sayyid ’Abdu’l Qadir Jilani, Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu, highly revered and the most influential Sufi and Preacher of his times, endeavour has been to provide a historical perspective while exploring the most recurring themes of his thought, in the light of the shaykhs original works. An attempt has also been made to provide an insight into the impact of the shaykh’s thought on the Indian subcontinent and the subsequent emergence of various Qadiriyya centres in that area.---Manzoor Ahmad Bhat.
