After the messengers and Prophets, the preaching of Islam is the responsibility of scholars and Sufis. Sufis organized many religious conferences for people’s purification, during these religious concerts people from the audience had noted down every single piece of advice said by Sufis. Afterward, some of these sufi’s edicts have been saved in a bookish form which is now known and saved as malfuzati Adab (Discourses). Sufis of Silsla Naqshbandiyyah had done great work not only in educational reforms for the betterment of inner and outer selves of people but also played role in the social welfare of the public. If we study their edicts according to the subjective categories then it can be clearly seen that their edicts contain and emphasize religious orders, worship and social reforms. By condemning the scurvy and immoral conduct of people Sufis advised people to do positive and constructive deeds in society to resolve the social issues in society. There is a number of discourses related to spirituality and method hood but in this article, only discourses of famous Naqshbandi Sufis related to sociology have been discussed.
