contribution of sufi saints, Contribution of Sufi In India
These great Sufi saints ‘divided’ deep into the “divine mysteries” of the spiritual world, and although their teachings and lessons were strictly based upon the tenets of Islam but, in essence, they invariably coincide with the fundamental principles and the noble teachings of other great religion of the world. Their motto of life was “LOVE TOWARDS ALL MALICE TOWARDS NONE” a very scared pledge aiming at the destruction of ill will and sin among mankind.
In short their preaching is based directly on the divine law and commandments showing the right path of happiness and salvation to mankind without any discrimination of caste or creed it is therefore, unquestionably a very noble and grand contribution to the progressive civilization of the world, the real value of which can hardly be imagined or valued by the present generation at this distance date when mankind had entered a new phase of material life and is speedily rifting towards spiritual bankruptcy and mammon worship.

Sufism came in INDIA with Sufi dervish from Middle East countries during 11th and 12th centuries A.D. It was by overpowering spell and charm of their magnetic personality, spiritual power and exemplary conduct that they won the hearts of million of people in HINDUSTAN and thus laid the foundation of ISLAM and UNITY ANF DIVERSITY in country.
They preached love among all classes of people with the ultimate aim of rising a one- nation edifice in this country. The lives of these ‘humble’ and ‘peaceful’ dervish, who brought nothing with them except the ‘name of god’and resolution of preaching “universal love and brotherhood” were exclusively dedicated to the cause of religious enlightenment of the suffering mankind whom they rescued from many age long tyrannies. As such, they were naturally loved and respected by all classes and ranks of people from a peasant to a prince. They made INDIA their home, lived here and gloriously passed away in the service of mankind.
