Sufism, the Heart of Islam


On the evening of April 23rd, 2009, author Sadia Dehlvi was beaming like a happy child in her Nizamuddin East drawing room. Finally, she had her first book, Sufism, The Heart of Islam, clasped tightly in her hands. Earlier in the day, Harper Collins India, Ms Dehlvi's publisher, had sent her a copy of the book hot off the press. Notwithstanding her excitement, The Delhi Walla pestered her for an interview over a cup of green tea.

    Dear Maryam,

    Thank you for sharing the link to this story. I most enjoyed it. It was written in a very warm, personal manner.

    I enjoyed reading of Sadia Dehlvi's speaking of sufism being the heart of Islam and the dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya being the heart of Delhi. I liked how her mother, in reference to the writing of the book, told her "not to expect anything worldly from it."

    Kindest wishes,
