1 Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi
A History of Sufism in India: Vol. I: Early Sufism and Its History
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121500397 / 9788121500395; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This work seeks to study Sufism as a psycho-historical phenomenon. The author finds it efficacious to combat social and political upheavals which are brought about by prolonged political revolutions, associated with autocratic oppression and economic deprivation. It is divided into two volumes. The present volume outlines the history of Sufism before it was firmly established in India and then goes on to discuss the principal trends in Sufi developments therefrom the thirteenth to the beginning of the sixteenth centuries. Chronologically it is concerned with Sufi history from the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate to the beginning of the Mughal Empire. Naturally it lays great emphasis on the Chistiyya, Suhrawardiyya, Firdausiyya and Kubrawiyya orders, but the contributions made by qalandars and legendary and semi-legendary saints have also not been neglected. A detailed discussion of the interaction of medieval Hindu mystic traditions and Sufism shows a unique polarity between the intolerant rigidity of the orthodox and the flexibility of the Sufis in India. Printed Pages: 480 with 2 coloured illustrations and 2 maps. 022672

2 Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi
A History of Sufism in India: Vol. II: From Sixteenth Century to Modern Times
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8121500400 / 9788121500401; Fourth Impression; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The first volume of the History of Sufism in India outlined the history of Sufism before it was firmly established in India and then went on to discuss the principal trends in Sufi development in that country from the thirteenth to the beginning of the sixteenth century. Naturally it laid great emphasis on the Chishtiyya, Suhrawardiyya, Firdausiyya and Kubrawiyya orders, but the contributions made by Qalandars and legendary and semi-legendary saints were also discussed. The interaction of medieval Hindu mystic traditions and Sufism formed a significant chapter in that book. The present volume starts with a brief discussion of the mystical philosophy of Ibn 'Arabi, which played a pivotal role in the development of Sufic thought and practices in India, as it did in other Islamic countries. The work then deals with the Qadiriyya, Shattariyya, Naqshbandiyya and the Chishtiyya orders. It also analyses the role of Indian Sufis in the wider Islamic world, as well as Sufi perception of politics and Hinduism. Printed Pages: 548. 033810

3 Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi
Iran: Royalty, Religion and Revolution
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1980; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Although the history of the Iranian monarchy itself goes back 2,500 years, the periods of strong rule during important dynasties, such as the Achaemenids and the Sasanids, were very short-lived. After the Arab conquest in the reign of 'Omar (634-644), Iran was ruled first from Medina and then from Damascus and later from Baghdad. Later still, Iran was ruled largely by Turkish and Mongol invaders. The Iranian people had never, however, hesitated to resist tyrannous rule. From the time of the legendary Kaveh in Ferdowsi's Shahnama to that of Ayatollahol 'Ozma Rouhollah Khomeini, the Iranian masses have struggled to establish a just and dynamic society. There has been no dearth of counter-revolutions, demagogues and impostors either. Many revolutions designed to overthrow despotism culminated in a new tyranny leading to a fresh revolution. Although the present work describes all important rebellions, revolutions and terrorist activities in Iran, it sees revolution only in terms of those human endeavours which fulfill a crucial function in the development of society; and does not seek to pass moral judgments. The work is also designed to analyse the process of reconstruction and revolution within the framework of the political, religious, literary and artistic development of Iran.

4 Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi; Foreword By Prof. Muhammad Habib
Muslim Revivalist Movements in Northern India: In the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121505909 / 9788121505901; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
Focussing on the controversy surrounding the Wahdat-ul-Wujud (Unity of Being, All is He) of Ibn 'Arabi (1165-1240) and the Wahdat-ush-Shuhud (Unity of Appearance, All is from Him) of Shaikh 'Alaud-Dawla Simnani (1261-1336), the work goes on to analyse the impact of the above ideologies on the teachings of early Chishtiyas, Suhrawardiyas, Firdausiyas and Shattariyas. It then discusses the impact of the Islamic millennium and the messianic movements on the body-politic of Islam in India, culminating with the Mahdawi movement in the realm of religion and the Sulh-i-Kul (Universal peace and concord) of Akbar the Great in the realm of politics and government. The study of Muslim revivalist movements in Northern India that emerged as a reaction to the pressure of the movements mentioned above, is the principal objective of the present book. Their pioneers such as Shaikh 'Abdul Haq Muhaddis Dehlawi (1515-1642) and Mujaddid Alf-i-Sani Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi (1564-1624) differed widely in their ideologies and practices. Shaikh 'Abdul Haq proceeded cautiously, while Mujaddid made strenuous efforts to convert the Mughal noblemen to his puritanically Islamic teachings. Naturally such a study is bound to be studded with controversial judgements but the authorís presentation of the vast source material on the subject has aroused considerable interest among the independent and objective thinkers, in the Muslim religious movements of India. Printed Pages: 511. 037742
