“The life and mission of Hadrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti have been of exceptional character as compared to other saints in India and elsewhere.
Khwaja Sahib’s life and teachings have also attracted the attention of Ulema, the great scholars in every age. Although, there are number of books on various aspects of his eventful life and mission. Yet, there was, a long-felt need for a compact account that not only touches upon his life, mission and philosophy, but also present a survey of other outstanding Sufis’ life and mission and gives a sketch of their contributions, in order to make it easier to comprehend great Khwaja’s philosophy and teachings. Because, the true appreciation of khwaja Sahib’s achievements and his historic contribution can be madefully, only when one locates them in their proper historical, social, political and religious context. Only such an approach, may help realise the eternal relevance of his message and philosophy of faith and life.
This book provides a concise hagiography of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Ajmer, as well as a study of his philosophy, mission and contribution to Islam, India and humanity at large. The biographical notes on other Sufis and commentaries on various Sufi Silsilas (Sufi orders) are in addition, to make the work richer and enlightening, on the concerned subjects. “(jacket)
