Sufi Rituals in Multan from the 19th century to Present : a Study of Mawlānā ‘Ubaydullāh Multānī’s (d. 1305/1888) Sharh Mufaṣṣal Qawl-i Faṣl fī al-Bay‘a wa al-Samā‘ and its Legacy Today

Abstract : The present study discusses the Sufi rituals in Multan performed by the Chishtiyya ʿUbaydiyya order from the 19th century to the present. Drawing from a treatise written by ʿUbaydullāh Multānī, the eponymous master, the study explores both bayʿa (initiation ritual) and samāʿ (spiritual concert) from the doctrinal perspective of the author and from the practical point of view of contemporary Chishtī ʿUbaydī shaykhs. I discuss in detail ʿUbaydullāh’s concept of both bayʿa and samāʿ according to his treatise. In order to do so, I strove to restore the text of Sharḥ Mufaṣṣal Qawl-i faṣl fi l-Bayʿa wa-l-Samāʿ by a comprehensive study of its manuscript. Sharḥ Mufaṣṣal is one of the most significant works of ʿUbaydullāh in which he tried to reinterpret the rules and regulations of bayʿa and samāʿ in a way that integrates sharīʿa with ṭarīqat.
