This book contains the names, shajarah and life-episodes of such noble Auliya and Mashaikh whose existence constitutes Divine Favour and whose very mention is a Divine Mercy for the world.
The commencement of Uloom-e-Marifat in the Indian Subcontinent was with Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. The Silsilah of the Chishtiyyah spread in the Indian Subcontinent with the advent of Khwaja Moinuddin. He is the Imam of Tasawwuf of the Indian Subcontinent.
Most aptly does the following gracious Qur’anic ayat apply to these illustrious Souls:
'Those first ones who have taken the lead among the Muhaajireen and the Ansaar and those who have followed them with the firmest conviction of Imaan (Ihsaan), Allah is well-pleased with them and they are well-pleased with Him.”
They were the true and perfect Mu’mins. They were excellent Muslims. In reality they were the slaves of Allah. They fully fulfilled the design declared in the ayat above.
