About The Book

This volume discusses the lives of five significant and influential figures of nineteenth-century Delhi 

  • Mohammad Zakaullah, 
  • Nazir Ahmad, 
  • Sayyid Ahmad Khan, 
  • Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib, and 
  • Khwaja Altaf Husain Hali. 

It studies their attitudes and behaviour towards one another, their responses to the onset of colonial rule, their experience of living through the 1857 Rebellion, their reappraisal of their culture and identity, and above all, the impact of their thinking and activism on their contemporaries.

It analyses the different views permeating some sections of Muslim intellectuals in India during the second half of the nineteenth century. While some aspects of doctrinal Islam played a part in shaping these intellectuals' conceptual world, the Shariat or Islamic law did not inform their world-view.

This book contains chapters on India in transition, the secular and the sacred, religion, religious pluralism, Nazir Ahmad's interpretation of Islam and modernism, and Muhammad Zakaullah's views on history, identity, and faith.
