6 Muslim Revivalist Movements in Northern India in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries

Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2014, 8121505909 / 9788121505901, Reprint, Hardcover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Focussing on the controversy surrounding the Wahdat-ul-Wujud (Unity of Being, All is He) of Ibn 'Arabi (1165-1240) and the Wahdat-ush-Shuhud (Unity of Appearance, All is from Him) of Shaikh 'Alaud-Dawla Simnani (1261-1336), the work goes on to analyse the impact of the above ideologies on the teachings of early Chishtiyas, Suhrawardiyas, Firdausiyas and Shattariyas. It then discusses the impact of the Islamic millennium and the messianic movements on the body-politic of Islam in India, culminating with the Mahdawi movement in the realm of religion and the Sulh-i-Kul (Universal peace and concord) of Akbar the Great in the realm of politics and government. The study of Muslim revivalist movements in Northern India that emerged as a reaction to the pressure of the movements mentioned above, is the principal objective of the present book. Their pioneers such as Shaikh 'Abdul Haq Muhaddis Dehlawi (1515-1642) and Mujaddid Alf-i-Sani Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi (1564-1624) differed widely in their ideologies and practices. Shaikh 'Abdul Haq proceeded cautiously, while Mujaddid made strenuous efforts to convert the Mughal noblemen to his puritanically Islamic teachings. The Mughal emperors from Akbar to Aurangzeb remained execrable to the emergence of a religious state within their empire and took their leaders to task as soon as they found them a threat to their state policies. Although the Naqshbandiya leadership to which Mujaddid belonged was divided within its ranks on the question of Wahdat-ush-Shuhud, the Qadriyas under Miyan Mir (d. 1635) and Mulla Shah (d. 1661) ardently propagated the Wahdat-ul-Wujud and its ethical and social ramifications. Naturally such a study is bound to be studded with controversial judgements but the author's presentation of the vast source material on the subject has aroused considerable interest among the independent and objective thinkers, in the Muslim religious movements in India.

Myth and Reality in the Contemporary Islamic Movement, Fouad Zakariyya
8 Myth and Reality in the Contemporary Islamic Movement

Fouad Zakariyya

Routledge, London, UK, 2005, 0745322468 / 9780745322469, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
This classic book explores the intellectual, political and social foundations of Islamism, and current Islamist groups across the Arab and Muslim worlds. Written by Egyptian philosopher and leading Arab intellectual, Fouad Zakariyya, and now available for the first time in English, this thoughtful book has no rival as a critical introduction to the nature of contemporary Islamism. The book was written in the aftermath of the assassination of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, and at the height of global debates about the relevance of Islamism in contemporary Muslim societies -- especially in the light of Iran's Islamic revolution in 1979. Zakariyya offers an important analysis of the multiple voices of current Islamism. He explores various recent attempts to construct an Islamic social and political order, presenting a sustained critique of modern ideological currents and theological worldviews. He delves into the sensitive question of Shari'ah, civil society and democracy in the Arab world. Ultimately, Zakariyya argues for a secular and democratic civil society that is unconstrained by past interpretations of the Shari'ah. Printed Pages: 200. 011263

The Book of Muhammad, Mehru Jaffer
9 The Book of Muhammad

Mehru Jaffer

Viking, New Delhi, India, 2001, 0670049778 / 9780670049776, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 12.5 Cms x 19.5 Cms 
Muhammad is the Prophet, the messenger of God. But for the vast majority of people outside the Islamic faith, he remains a mystery, and myths and misconceptions about him abound. Born in a time of moral despondency and despair, Muhammad spent his entire life trying to transcend human pettiness, searching for absolute values, the meaning of life and what it meant to be a human being. The Book of Muhammad recounts this journey—Muhammad’s early struggles to bring his message to the people in Mecca, the Revelation, his flight to Medina and the establishment of Islam and an ideal city-state there, and his triumphant return to Mecca. Mehru Jaffer’s own search to understand the teachings of Islam inform this lucid yet profound retelling of the life of one of the most mesmerizing figures to walk this earth, thereby making his teachings and spiritual significance accessible to all. In this short biography, Mehru Jaffer presents Muhammad as an extraordinary prophet and leader, a man of God who succeeded in uniting all of Arabia through his new faith and exerted enormous influence over centuries of human history. In her detailed introduction to the book she also examines why the fundamental tenet of his teachings—that to be a good human being is to be kind, compassionate and charitable—is particularly relevant in our troubled times today.
