Sufism, called the mystical dimension of Islam, is known for its inclusive nature, as well as its ethics of love and compassion, its devotional music, art, and architecture.

“In Search of the Divine: Living Histories of Sufism in India, became as much a personal as an academic quest, and it took me six years of research and visits to dargahs to complete. I can only hope that this journey made me a better person and will be transformational for the readers of the book,” said Safvi, the author of the bestselling Delhi trilogy — Where Stones Speak, The Forgotten Cities of Delhi and Shahjahanabad: The Living City of Old Delhi — in a statement.
