Submitted by Nafiz Imran (India), Dec 6, 2015 at 05:04

Islam has influenced the indian people in varios ways, but sufism influenced the people tremendously.the sufis were not monks.they married, raised families,today also we find that sufis are not only leading a noble life. but also holding important posts and contribiting to the well being of the people of india.we find an illustrious example in the person of late Dr.Zakir Hussain Khan.

Dr.Zakir Hussain Khan was also sufi who became president of india.After his demise almost all rulers of the world attended his last rites. our hindu brothers granted four acres of land at jame millia.

To quote a great sufi of our time:-

Humanity gets peace and love only from the teachings of the mystics (sufis) and not from kingly power.
