SOCIO-RELIGIOUS OUTLOOK OF ABUL FAZL

By (author)AZRA ALVI

 50

Abu Fazl’ Allami was one of the most outstanding intellectual figures of his times. Liberal in his religio-political outlook, cosmopolitan in his dealings with the various religious communities of India, seasoned as a diplomat and versatile as a scholar, he occupies a prominent place in the history of medieval political thought.

In an age torn by religious conflicts and tensions, he stood for religious toleration and peaceful co-existence of the various religious and cultural groups. As he was closely associated with the emperor Akbar, whose social and religious outlook made a deep impact on contemporary life and thought, Abul Fazl’s own religious and social ideas deserve a careful study.

Unfortunately his ideas are difficult to separate from those of Akbar, the reason being their identity of outlook and similarity of approach on fundamental problems of religion and society.
