Abstract:

"The present volume is a contribution to larger knowledge of the faith of Islam in one of its less familiar manifestations, in which it makes appeal to Hindus almost as much as to Musulmans. The tie that frew Hindu and Muslim together was generally mysticism, and among the many Muhammadan mystics that India had produced none has made so successful an appeal to the Hindus among whom they have lived than the Muslim saints of Western and North-West India. Their history is obscure, and indeed their Sufic teaching did not tend to encourage in their followers much regard for strict historical narration; so their biographers have little information to give regarding them save tales of the unusual and the miraculous. One of these Sufis of Western India was Shah Abdul Latif, an account of whose life and teaching is here presented to the English reader for the first time." (Extract from Sir Thomas Arnold's introduction) --Jacket.
