Book Description

This lively study examines the poetic writings of Nizårí Quhiståní, one of the few Ismaili authors who survived the Mongol invasion of Iran in the 13th century. The invasion put an end to Ismaili political aspirations and independence until the 16th-century Safavid dynasty. The evidence of Nizårí's writings demonstrates that during the period of the invasion the Ismaili community did not lose their internal organizational structure, and that they continued to operate in different forms through the Mongol period in Persian history.

Book Description

The Fatimid period was the golden age of Ismaili thought and literature, when Shi'ite Ismaili Imams ruled over the vast areas of the Muslim world and made important contributions to Islamic civilization. Heinz Halm investigates from a historical perspective the intellectual traditions that developed among the Ismailis from the rise of the Fatimid state in North Africa to the cultural brilliance of what he calls "one of the great eras in Egyptian history and in Islamic history in general." He covers the training of the Ismaili dais or missionaries, the establishment of academic institutions such as al-Azhar and the Dar al-'Ilm (House of Knowledge) through which the Fatimids encouraged learning, and the special "sessions of wisdom" for advanced instruction.

Book Description

Primarily, the book aims at rekindling the latent and dormant spirit, that is the prime-mover for human survival and continuity.The Soul is the target.This is not just another commercial venture, although, of course, financial backing is obviously required to sustain any endeavor, nor is it an attempt to propogate religion.The Divine Truth contains the "Old World Answers to Modern Age Tormentations."The solutions have been taken as extracts from the Holy Scripture (Guru Granth Sahib) of one of the youngest religions in the world (Sikhism), which dates back to 1469 (the birth year of its founder, Guru Nanak.)

The Author, Dr. Harsimran Singh, has made a humble attempt to reach the masses, with the message of spiritual upliftment and meditation, as enshrined in the Holy Book, because it is a Universal Truth, transcending barriers of race, creed, status, sex et al.

The Soul is a multi-faceted personality.It is a universe in itself.Each soul has a distinct flavor, color and taste.It only requires a congenial and conducive environment to blossom forth into a radiant and fragrant flower, that would then prove beneficial to humanity, at large.

The Various truths that are covered in the book are noted in the Table of Contents. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The Most Authoritative History of the Order Yet Published.
Hodgson's book is outstanding; a must-read for anyone with a serious interest in early Islamic history generally or in the sect of so-called Assassins particularly. The only shortcoming of this edition is the lack of illustrations (map, tables) that were included in the earlier edition. Hence I gave 4 stars rather than 5. ... Read more
