Lessons from Prophet Muhammad’s Life: Prophet Muhammad in Loss and Grief

God had once more tested the Prophet (peace be upon him) through his humanity and his mission. He had lost so many loved ones- companions, his wife Khadijah, three of his daughters, and his sons. His life had been crossed with tears, but he remained both gentle with his heart and firm in his mission. It was this chemistry of gentleness and firmness that satisfied the Most Near.....

Dara's Discovery of Spiritual Oneness beyond Name and Form

In his youth, Dara came into contact with numerous Sufis and Bhaktas, some of whom exercised a profound influence on him. The most noted among these was Hazrat Miyan Mir (d.1635 C.E.), a Qadri Sufi of Lahore whose disciple he later became. Hazrat Miyan Mir is best remembered for having laid the foundation-stone of the Golden Temple of the Sikhs at Amritsar. After Dara was initiated into the Qadri Sufi order, which he describes in his Risala-i-Haq Numa as ‘the best path of reaching Divinity’, he came into contact with several other mystics of his day, Muslim as well as Hindu, including Shah Muhibullah, Shah Dilruba, Shah Muhammad Lisanullah Rostaki, Baba Lal Das Bairagi, and Jagannath Mishra. Dara’s close and friendly interaction with them led him to seek to highlight the essential sameness or oneness of Sufism and Hindu mysticism......

Khwāja Mo`Īnuddīn Chishti Was the Torchbearer of Love, Compassion and Inter-Faith Harmony in India

Even more than 700 years after his demise, his shrine is a symbol of inter-faith love and harmony. Today deviant and extremist Islamic groups are engaged in terror and wanton killings of innocent civilians in the false pretext of spreading Islam and compelling them to change the religion on gun point. They should take lesson from Gharib Nawaz’s concept of inclusive Islam and his peaceful method of preaching.....

Uwais of Qaran Never Met Prophet Muhammad, Both Were Fully Aware of Each Other’s Spiritual Presence, Bound by the Love of Allah

The Uwaisi form of spiritual transmission in vocabulary of Islamic mysticism was named after Uwais Quarni, as it refers to the transmission of spiritual knowledge between two individuals without the need for physical interaction between them. The story of Hazrat Uwaiz remains a favourite amongst Sufi circles. Sometimes the Messenger of God would turn in the direction of Yemen and say: “I perceive the fragrance of love from Yemen,” referring to the presence of a great lover of God living in that region......

Remembering Dara Shikoh - The Prince of Tolerance

South Asia, particularly the Sub-Continent region, is home to a stunning array of diverse groups, languages, and cultures. At times living in complete harmony, at others, as in recent times with mercurial levels of tolerance leading to escalating violence, unfortunately meted out to individual properties and lives. …..

The Friend of Allah

Prophet Muhammad entrusted his mystic heritage to Hazrat Ali famously saying, “I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate”. Hazrat Ali is universally recognised as the leader of the Wali’s, Sufis, the Friends of Allah. The Prophet also said, “Man Kunto Maula va Ali un Maula”. These words are known as Qaul, and inscribed on the walls of numerous Sufi spaces. Hazrat Amir Khusrau set this prophetic saying to a classical Raag, and most Sama Mahfils, musical assemblies traditionally begin with a rendition of the Qaul......

Allama Iqbal: Great Poet and Philosopher of Islam

The stranded Pakistanis have twice made great sacrifices. Firstly, when they abandoned their wealth, property, friends and relatives in India and migrated to East Pakistan during the partition of the Subcontinent, and secondly when they stood with the Pakistan army to protect the unity of Pakistan during the period of secession of East Pakistan and formation of the new state of Bangladesh. As a result of their position against secession, they were subjected to killing, looting and displacement…..

The Forgotten Inheritance of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad

Muslims made India their home centuries ago, and according to Azad, they had a huge stake in the idea of India. However, Azad’s idea received a jolt in 1947 as the violence of partition ravaged India. Azad went on to live for another ten years, helping in healing and rebuilding the scarred and bruised new India. Azad lived many lives....

Rabia of Basra

One of my favourite Sufis is Rabia Basri, who gave Sufism the concept of Divine love. The eighth century mystic woman remained a celibate as her overwhelming love for God left no room for any worldly relationships. Sufi manuals are filled with stories from her remarkable life that illustrate her teachings.....

Halima: The Foster Mother of Prophet Muhammad

When she brought the blessed child home, she had a daughter named Shaima and her sucking son, Abdullah. Shaima was about five years old and she used to help her mother take care of Mohammed. She would bath him and take him for walks and always embraced him with love. Shaima witnessed a change that happened in her family from poverty to comfort because of the blessing of this child. She used to sing songs about him and say: “Our Lord! Keep Muhammad (peace be upon him) alive for us so that I can see him become an adolescent, then a leader. Suppress his enemies and those who are envious of him, and give him everlasting glory!”…

What Studying Muhammad Taught Me about Islam

Muhammad's beliefs on how to treat religious minorities make him a universal champion of human rights, particularly as it pertains to freedom of conscience, freedom of worship, and the right for minorities to have protection during times of strife. Muhammad initiated many legal covenants with Christians and Jews after establishing his Muslim community….

Hanged For Trying To Bridge the Gap between Islam and Hinduism: Remembering Dara Shikoh, a Sufi-Prince, Scholar and Translator, On His 350th Death Anniversary

What is significant for us today is not that there was a war for kingship — in itself nothing unusual — but that one of the chief charges Aurangzeb brought against the rightful heir  was that in publishing the Majma-‘ul-Bahrain (The Mingling of the Two Oceans) Dara Shikoh had openly committed to the truth in Hinduism. Like his great-grandfather, Dara tried to bridge the gap between Hinduism and Islam. The Emperor Akbar had strongly believed that his Mughal nobles needed to understand their Hindu subjects and had set up a translation bureau to render the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the Bhagavata into Persian. Prince Dara Shikoh went much further.

Fareed Zakaria:The man who made a world of difference

Fareed Zakaria, an illustrious Indian-American and editor of the international edition of Newsweek, is one of the most intelligent commentators on the state of the world. That he is the son of the late Dr Rafeeq Zakaria, a renowned Islamic scholar with whom I interacted closely, provides me an added reason to be an avid reader of his weekly column. Newsweek recently ran a cover story featuring an extract from his latest book, The Post-American World, writes veteran columnist Sudheendra Kulkarni in the Indian Express.
