Abstract and Keywords

This chapter is a first exploratory attempt to sketch a map of Muslim theology in India for the pre-modern and early modern periods. The vast majority of texts in this discipline have remained unpublished and practically no substantive work on their contents has appeared to date. Thus, at this stage of research, it appears suitable that the tradition be gauged in a preliminary fashion from three related angles: socio-intellectual networks of relevant scholars; a tally of the most significant texts; and brief references to prominent debates and to the contribution of certain outstanding personalities. Taken together, it is hoped that the information contained herein will open up some vistas for future research.

Keywords: Farangi Mahall, Khayrabadi, Dars-i Nizami, Shah Waliallah, Dildar ‘Ali, Mirza-Jan al-Baghnawi, Fath Allah al-Shirazi, and Nur Allah al-Shirazi
