1 Reema Abbasi (Author) & Mehru Jaffer (Frwd)
Ajmer Sharif: Awakening of Sufism in South Asia
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285646; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ajmer Sharif, the heart of homage for thousands of all faiths, welcomes a tidal wave of humanity for the saint known as Gharib Nawaz (Benefactor of the Poor), whose spiritual order is the most lyrical and inclusive. This book showcases the absolute necessity of Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti in our conflicted times. Today, he is a signpost of unity; a reminder of the relevance of Sufism as a conduit of harmony and justice. These pages narrate the story of the founder of the Chishti Sufi Order in South Asia-who knew that hunger supersedes doctrines-and of his movement, which began in a mud hut over eight centuries ago. Muinuddin Chishti brought qawwali, the genre of Sufi devotional recitals, and the ideal of acceptance to the world. He discouraged religious supremacy and patriarchy by example-his wife was a central leader and his only daughter became a caliph-an aspect practised at his seat, but cast off by other shrines of his lineage. An elaborately researched oeuvre on the history, spiritual journey, mystical power and legacy of the 12th century Sufi giant-rich with accounts of Mughal devotees, monuments, rituals and over 200 unique, evocative photographs-Ajmer Sharif traces the life of the saint and reveals the living force of his shrine.

2 Mehru Jaffer
The Book of Muhammad
Viking; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0670049778 / 9780670049776; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Muhammad is the Prophet, the messenger of God. But for the vast majority of people outside the Islamic faith, he remains a mystery, and myths and misconceptions about him abound. Born in a time of moral despondency and despair, Muhammad spent his entire life trying to transcend human pettiness, searching for absolute values, the meaning of life and what it meant to be a human being. The Book of Muhammad recounts this journey—Muhammad’s early struggles to bring his message to the people in Mecca, the Revelation, his flight to Medina and the establishment of Islam and an ideal city-state there, and his triumphant return to Mecca. Mehru Jaffer’s own search to understand the teachings of Islam inform this lucid yet profound retelling of the life of one of the most mesmerizing figures to walk this earth, thereby making his teachings and spiritual significance accessible to all. In this short biography, Mehru Jaffer presents Muhammad as an extraordinary prophet and leader, a man of God who succeeded in uniting all of Arabia through his new faith and exerted enormous influence over centuries of human history. In her detailed introduction to the book she also examines why the fundamental tenet of his teachings—that to be a good human being is to be kind, compassionate and charitable—is particularly relevant in our troubled times today.
