The author: W.D. Begg
India has been known for millenia as a land of spiritual people and in her distinguished hsitory, one name stands out among all others as the undisputed greatest saint of India, that of Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Chisti of Ajmer. Orphaned in his teens, he gave up of his rich inheritance one day by a divine miraqcle to seek the path of Sufi dervishes. The story of his illustrious life, of his education among the spiritual luminaries of his time in iraq and Persia, of his divinely decreed mission of bringing Islam to India and the miraculous battles in propagating it there, with his highly enlightened "sayings" are historical legends in India. There are extremely few personalities of spiritual India who inspore and command spontaneous devotion and admiration for his exemplary life, his divine worship, his noble teachings for the upliftment and service to all mankind. To this day, nearly 750 years after his demise, his holy shrine is visited throughout the year by millions of faithful devotees of all religions and nations to pay homage to this great saint of the East.
This holy biography presents the very full account of his life and teachings in a special edition produced exclusively for the English-speaking world. The original edition first published in India in 1960 has won thousands of readers in dozens of countries throughout the world.
Its author, Mirza Wahiduddin Begg has produced this rare and historic volume after 25 years of deep and thorough research on the true principles of Islam and tassawuf (sufism).
While Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Chisti is known to only a few selected groups in the West as the founder of the "Chisti Order" of Sufis and Islam in India, his highly inspiring life story of over 4,000 miracles and his illuminating work for the emancipation of the oppressed of humanity, regardless of caste, creed, colour religion or nation, make him an ever shining example of true humanity and Universal Brotherhood.
