Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi (RA) & His Reforms- PhD Thesis - Dr.A.F.M. Abu Bakr Siddiqui-Khanqa e Mujaddidiya Mirpur, Dhaka

Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi (971/1561/1034/1624) was born in India in such a time when the political, Social and religious conditions of the Muslims were at a critical juncture. The Shaikh played an enduring role against the then heterogeneous onslaughts to the very faith of Islam and ultimately came out successful. He strove hard with whole-hearted devotion to reform and to bring about a silent revolution in the total life of the Muslim's of india, as well as that of the other Muslim countries of the world. For this great achievement he is still remembered as Mujaddid Alf Thani- Renovator of the Second Millennium, throughout the Muslim world.

In this work attempts have been made to evaluate the monumental achievements of Shaikh Ahmad sirhindi in the field of rejuvenation of Islam. Some work's on some of the particular aspects such as- "Metaphysics of Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi" and "The Mujaddid`s conception of Towhid" 'have been done by the scholars. But no concerted effort, to my knowledge, has as yet been done for the overall evaluation of the reformative achievements of the Shaikh. To meet this need I have under-taken the task.
It consists of six chapters : First chapter deals with the Social, Political and religious conditions of India during 10th and 11th centuries. In the second chapter the life and works of the Shaikh have been discussed. The third chapter includes a discussion on the conception of Mujaddid in Islam, with special reference to Mujaddid Alf Thani. The contributions of the Mujaddid towards with holding and eradicating the effects of Din-I- Ilahi of Akbar have been discussed in the fourth chapter, A brief survey of the total reforms done by the Mujaddid is given in the fifth chapter, and the chapter sixth includes some views of the great Mujaddid pertaining to his revivalist movement. In the conclusion, the position of Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi and the impact of his reformative movements have been assessed.
