Sufis of Sindh by Jotilal Jotwani

Posted on | November 15, 2014 | No Comments

Sufis of Sindh The ideal of futuwwa, or brotherhood, which was at the basis of many associations devoted to the spread of ‘purity, generosity, service of neighbouror stranger” in the pre-Islamic Arabia seems to have been adhered to the Arabian mystics before the end of the second century or in the beginning of the ninth century A.D. These mystics came to be called Sufis. The etymology of the term “Sufi” is not certain. According to some scholars, the word is connected with safi, the pure. The more general view refers it to suf or coarse wool, as these mystics used to wear woollen garments. The Sufis, being in the general framework of the shari ‘ah, the correct practice of the Quranic beliefs, followed different individual paths, or tariqah, for their spiritual endeavour. These individual differences clearly shows in this book portraying a number of Sufis from the Sindh region. The author, Dr. Jotwani was considered as one of the great research scholars of Sindhi language in India and Pakistan. He had received many awards for his literary works.
