Muhammadan Path and Naqshbandi Sufis of Indo-Pak Subcontinent- Dr.Arthur Buehler,


Khwaja Mir Dard-1721-1785
Dard was first and foremost a Sufi, a prominent member of the Naqshbandi Mujaddidi order, and the head of the Muhammadi path (tariqah muhammadiyah, a Mujaddidi offshoot) in Delhi. He regarded the phenomenal world as a veil of the eternal Reality, and this life as a term of exile from our real home. Dard inherited his Sufi temperament from his father, Khwaja Muhammad Nasir Andalib, who was a naqshbandi sufi saint and a poet, and the founder of the Muhammadi path.
