Upanishads and Islamic Mysticism

Intaj Malek (Author)
Synopsis India is a beautiful garden with varied religious flowers and plants spreading in the world the aroma of love and brotherhood, peace and non-violence, kindness and generosity nt only towards human beings but also towards animals and to the vegetation world. It is in such a garden that the flowers of Upanishads blossomed and ripened into fruits giving nectar to the entire world. It is because of this magnanimity of thoughts and richness of spirituality that encouraged me to write on such a subject. Upanishads to have everything that can satisfy the spiritual appetite of human beings. They are full of poetic beauty, an emphasis on knowledge of the Self possession of the Indian mystical tradition that has opened the new horizons for the development of other mystical traditions. Islamic Mysticism that is popularly or rather fondly known as Sufism, seems to me very similar to the Upanishadic mysticism. The Sufi mystics of Islam do talk about the unity of the Self with the Supreme self i.e. the Brahman in Upanishadic language. The two separate traditions of spirituality ultimately merge together in fena or realization of the self. The book deciphers the theme in the chapters that follow.

M Baker Momin - Wonderful Book Jan, 01, 1970

This is a wonderful book which portrays the two diverse tradition of mysticis.The Sufi tradition of Mysticism has much in common with the Indian mystical traditions. The author has nicely given details of the Sufi mystics who are not found in other works of renowned authors. The famous Sufi mystic of Gujarat-Anwar Kazi is such a figure who has been ignored is now given due justice and brought to the notice of the people who love Sufism. There are numerous Sufis who never bothered for fame.Their work need be published and brought to the general public. This book can definitely bridge the gap between the two diverse traditions which are widely misunderstood.
