Reform and Renewal in South Asian Islam

The Chishtī-Sābrīs in 18th—19th Century North India

Moin Ahmad Nizami

  • A path breaking study on Sufism in north India during the early modern period
  • Argues against the idea that Sufism was rigid and orthodox. This study shows that in fact there was a strong reformist impulse within Chishtī-Sābrī tradition
  • Discusses the complex articulation between Chishtī-Sābrī reformist tendencies and the colonial state against which it was often pitted
  • Challenges the idea that Sufism and scholarly Islam of 'ulamā was irreconcilable with each other
