The Beginnings of Ismaili Dawa in Northern India
Sumra.jpg

This is an attempt by the author in 1954 to explain how Ismaili Dawa started in India. Very early during the Fatimids, Ismaili Dawa had reached all parts of India. Balouchistan was Ismaili. In Hind and Sind, there was also strong Ismaili Influence as well as in Multan. The Sumra Dynasty reign lasted 350 years. Sumras were practising Fatimid Ismailism. They helped later in the Dawa carried by Pir Satgur Nur and Pir Sadardin. Overall, an extremely important work, though only few pages, a must read.
