The Minqar-i Musiqar
Hazrat Inayat Khan's Minqar-i MusiqarClassic 1912 Work
on Indian Musical Theory and Practice

Translation and introduction by Allyn Miner with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan

The Minqār-i Mūsīqār is of rare interest both for its contents and for its distinguished author, Hazrat Inayat Khan. Its sections on theory are based on the teachings of the author’s grandfather, Maula Bakhsh, and other late nineteenth century sources. The songs at the center of the book are the author’s own compositions, and the poetry collection includes more than sixty choice Urdu and Persian ghazals.  As valuable as it is for its musical content, the Minqār is equally fascinating for what it tells us about the writer and the times in which it was written, and the musical learning and enthusiasms of Inayat Khan, whose personal drive, ambition to engage with the wider world, and longing for the divine are palpable throughout the book.
