THE CHISHTI LUMINARIES IN THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY INDIA
The fourteenth and fifteenth centuries followed a pattern of decentralization of Chishti Silsilah at Delhi. This decentralization was accompanied with the establishment of khānqāhs and localization of Chishti Silsilah in areas like Daulatabad, Gulbarga, Ahmadabad, Mandu, Zainabad, Gujrat, Bengal and Malwah. The khānqāhs in these regions conclusively inaugurated a culture of learning and development of vast literature of Chishti Silsilah. Many prominent Chishti sufis lived in the sixteenth century India. Both the sub-linages, the Chishti-Nizami and Chishti-Sabari flourished during this era.
