Abstract
In the 16th century, during the reign of Akbar, Islam faced overwhelming threats. The Din-i-Ilahi, as propounded by Akbar, was a mixture of various religions. It recognized no gods or prophets and the emperor was its chief exponent. Akbar's Din-i-Ilahi had literally made the orthodox Muslims outcasts in the affairs of the state. Akbar was actually influenced by the Bhakti Movement that had started during the Sultanate period. Many sufis condemned his religious innovations. However, the man who took it upon himself to revive Islam was Sheikh Ahmad of Sarhind, commonly known as Mujaddid Alf Sani, or "the reformer of the second millennium". He dedicated his sincerity of purpose to purify Islam and to rid it of the accretions of Hindu pantheism.

Through verbal preaching, discussions and his letters addressed to important nobles and leaders of religious thought, he spread his message amongst the elite in particular. He boldly opposed all plans to bring Islam and Hinduism together on the religious level, knowing that it would loosen the Muslim grip on the sources of imperial strength. Allama Iqbal rightly regarded him as the "Spiritual Guardian of the Muslims" of the sub-continent and one whom God had alerted to the great perils inherent in the syncretism of Akbar.
