Translated from Persian by a leading scholar of medieval India, this book is an account of two holy men who came from Central Asia to the Deccan in the late seventeenth century just at the time when Awrangzeb came south to fight his wars against the Marathas. The text sheds light on the social, cultural, and devotional life of the Central Asian immigrants to the Deccan, wandering darwishes, and the soldiers and merchants who were their clients and devotees.
