Hazrat Inayat Khan
A tribute to Murshid.
In the 1990s I visited the Dagar of Hazrat Inayat in the Lodi tombs area of Delhi. There was a celebration in honour of the saints life with followers from his Dutch community.
I attended kawal music by his beautiful tomb and bought some books from his translated lectures.
Then I later read a biography on his life. In particular the "Mysticism of sound" book affected me.
Being a musician of Indian music I felt close to Murshid as he was a student of the Baroda Gharana of school of classical music.
Murshid was foremost a musician but he also was a seeker of Allah and his mystical journey took him to the west where he sowed the seeds of Sufism.
Later in 2010 approximately I was in Ajmer Rajastan and was able to visit the Mohomed Chisti Mosque, the most famous Sufi temple in India and I listened to Qawal singers there.
