When man traverses a certain part of the Path of Love, God begins to help him more actively by drawing him to His Abode. The most important orders to emerge out of Mesopotamia are Rifa'iyyah, Suhrawardiyyah, Kubrawiyyah and Qadiriyyah. Professor Nicholson had initially credited the "extreme pantheism" of Bistami as being "Persian or Indian" in inspiration, though the doctrine of fana was envisaged as being probably derived from the Buddhistic nirvana.

The mystical fire, as it spread rapidly over the broad world of Islam, found tinder in the harts of many who were not Persians: Egyptians like Dhu'l Nun, Andalucians like Ibn'ul Arabi, Arabs like Rabi'a al 'Adawiyya. Islam started when the Angel Jibril, gave Prophet Muhammad the book of Revelation. Many of the verse references given by Nicholson are one or two off from Pickthall and other translations; the hyperlinks have been adjusted but the original citation retained in these instances.] THE title of this book sufficiently explains why it is included in a Series 'exemplifying the adventures and labours of individual seekers or groups of seekers in quest of reality.' Sufism, the religious philosophy of Islam, is described in the oldest extant definition as 'the apprehension of divine realities,' and Mohammedan mystics are fond of calling themselves Ahl al-Haqq, 'the followers of the Real.' In attempting to set forth their central doctrines from this point of view, I shall draw to some extent on materials which I have collected during the last twenty years for a general history of Islamic mysticism--a subject so vast and many-sided that several large volumes would be required to do it anything like justice.

The Legacy of Muslim Rule in India, New Delhi, Aditya Prakashan, 1992, p. 237 [10] Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi, Muslim revivalist movements in northern India in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. And as he looked at Bulleh Shah, Bulleh Shah fell at his feet. Ghazan (r. 1295-1304) had been a Buddhist but converted to Islam, taking the name Mahmud and proclaiming Islam the Mongol state religion. Under their impact, the Mongols, who had been the scourge of Islam, became patrons of Islam. (76) This humanitarian form of Islam was also spread by the Mongols, the Ottoman Turks, and Sufism had a special role in bringing Islam into India, first by traders, then under the Mughal conquerors. (77) We see this tolerant trend in the fact that the Mulla Abu'l Hakim 'issued a fatwa that it was wrong to build a mosque by demolishing a temple', while the Sufi poet Sarmad argued that Hindus and Muslims were both seeking the same truth, though using different verbal formulations. (78) It is unfortunate that such injunctions have not always been remembered in modern Indian religious politics, as in the infamous Ayodhya mosque incident which inflamed Hindu-Muslim conflicts between 1989 and 1992. 2.
