Praises be to Allah, the Merciful, the most Compassionate, who has blessed us to develop and publish this web page focusing on Maizbhandar Darbar Sharif and its famous school of thought, in particular; and relevant issues of Sufism, in general. Maizbhandar Sharif has exceedingly contributed and adorned not only the contemporary Sufism, but also made an augmented impact on the socio-cultural profile of the society. The major thrust of the Maizbhandari School of Thought is to advance the concept of universal humanism based on the true teachings of holy Qu’ran and Sunnah.
The underpinning rationality of the Maizbhandari Philosophy is to support and encourage the people to become complete human being by purifying their mental state. In this context, Maizbhandari teachings emphasis the need to understand religious issues within the attendant condition of broader societal need. Nevertheless, it would not be complete, if someone fails to understand the founder of the Maizbhandari Philosophy – Hazrat Gausul Azam Shah Sufi Syed Ahmed Ullah Maizbhandari, whose achievements had obliterated the distinctions of race, color and social status; and his representatives who were distinctly blessed by him in advancing his teachings. Keeping this in view, while providing an overview of Maizbhandar Sharif; this web page introduces briefly Hazrat Gausul Azam Shah Sufi Syed Ahmed Ullah Maizbhandari alias Hazrat Kebla Baba, Hazrat Gausul Azam Golamur Rahman alias Baba Bhandari, Hazrat Delwar Hossain Maizbhandari, and Hazrat Shahanshah Ziaul Huq Maizbhandari. Obviously their life sketches will help the readers to grasp better the conceptual foundation of Maizbhandar Sharif. In addition, the home page highlights the basic principles of Maizbhandari Philosophy.
This Home page is open for inclusion of any relevant writing on Maizbhandar Shari and Sufism. This open approach is in covenant with the concept of liberalism, which is the prime foundation of Maizbhandari philosophy. We believe such multidisciplinary and broader perspective will provide a platform for the researchers and interested readers to ventilate their thoughts, which will, in turn enrich the knowledge and understanding about the Sufism. We hope, Insh-Allah, this home page will include more research works, not only restricted to Sufism; but also related to other aspects of societal issues relevant to mankind.
The contents of the home page will be reviewed and updated periodically. The comments and constructive suggestions by the readers will be helpful in further improving this web page.
May Allah, the Almighty bless all of us.
