Waleed Ziad, ‘How Peshawar revived Bukhara’s Sanctity: The Remarkable Story of Hazrat Jio Sahib Peshawari (d. 1816)’

February 28, 2019 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

From the mid-18th century, the political landscape of the Persianate world underwent dramatic transformations. While decentralized states gradually emerged across Central Asia, the Durrani Afghans began carving out an empire from eastern Iran to north India. This turbulent period also witnessed the proliferation of an intricate network of shrines, Sufi centers and madrasas associated with the Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi (‘revivalist’) Sufi order, which had originated in the Mughal heartlands.
