Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, awarded Mufti Mohd. Mushtaq Tijarvi Ph.D. degree on his research work “Shaikh Junaid Baghdadi aur Unka Tasawwuf”.
Mufti Mushtaq, who has been rendering his services as Senior Lecturer at Islamic Academy, New Delhi, completed his work on this great Sufi scholar and his contribution to the development of Sufism, under the supervision of Professor Akhtarul Wasey of Department of Islamic Studies of the Jamia.
In his 5-chapter research work, Mufti Mushtaq has presented Shaikh Junaid Baghdadi as an outstanding Sufi and Islamic scholar of Shafii school, who gave a particular dimension to Sufism and laid such strong foundations as could keep Sufism subservient to the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah. Shaikh Junaid Baghdadi categorically rejected the un-Islamic elements that had then permeated into the realm of Sufism, and said that Sufism must be practised in strict accordance with the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah. This dimension of Sufism was accepted by all other Sufis and that is why he is known as Sayyid-ut-Taaifah (Leader of Sufis).
