Chapter Summary

This chapter evaluates the reception of ʿAyn al-Quḍāt by medieval authors and especially the Chishtī leader Khawājah Banda Nawāz Gīsūdarāz. Najm al-Dīn Rāzī Abū Bakr ʿAbdallāh ibn Muḥammad ibn Shahāwar aspired to the teachings of the visionary mystics of the twelfth century but distinguished himself from them as an authentically devout Muslim. The founders of the Chishtī order considered learning a spiritual practice. The masters of the order were expected to know the inner meaning of the scholarly issues that were posed to them. This tradition of scholarly wayfaring reached an apex in the extraordinary work of Khawājah Banda Nawāz Gīsūdarāz. Gīsūdarāz was a prolific writer and produced close to two hundred books in Arabic, Persian, and some in Deccani. Sḥar-i Tamhīdāt , also known as Sḥar-i Zubdat al-Ḥa qāʾiq, is among this important collection of original writings.

Keywords: ʿAyn al-Quḍāt; Khawājah Banda Nawāz Gīsūdarāz; Najm al-Dīn Rāzī; Sḥar-i Tamhīdāt
